The New York State Legislature Honors West Point

Senator Bill Larkin (R-C, Cornwall-on-Hudson), a retired Lieutenant Colonel who served 23 years on active duty in the United States Army, today hosted the sixty first annual "West Point Day" at the New York State Capitol in Albany. 

“This day means so much to me,” said Senator Bill Larkin.  “West Point is truly a unique institution and one that produces the best of the best.  The men and women who attend the Academy are proven leaders who have excelled at academics and have demonstrated their abilities under pressure.  I thank them for traveling to Albany to allow us to show them how much we appreciate their sacrifices and their commitment to our country,” said Larkin.

To commemorate the Academy's visit, the Senate and Assembly adopted Legislative Resolutions honoring the establishment of the United States Military Academy at West Point and Governor Andrew Cuomo issued a Proclamation declaring April 24, 2013 as West Point Day in the State of New York.
