State Senate Honors West Point

 Senator William T. Stachowski (D, Lake View) today honored a contingent of cadets and officers from the United States Military Academy at West Point at the fifty-eighth annual “West Point Legislative Day” at the New York State Capitol in Albany.

 “Today, the State Senate recognized and honored the special relationship New York State has had with the United States Military Academy at West Point since 1802,” said Senator Stachowski.  “I am honored to have been able to meet today’s representatives of the West Point delegation.  These talented young men and women are the future leaders of the United States Army.” 

 Senator Stachowski said, “As we continue the war on terror we are reminded of the tremendous responsibilities undertaken by these young men and women and the sacrifices they are willing to make to preserve the freedoms on which this great country is founded.  We owe a debt of gratitude to the United States Military Academy and the corps of cadets for their invaluable service to this nation.”

 This year's ceremonies mark the fifty-eighth year the State Legislature has honored the United States Military Academy at West Point.
