History and Overview of West Point
The United States Military Academy, which is popularly known as West Point
or simply The Point is the federal service academy situated in the West
Point region of New York State. The academy was established in 1802 and
has since been training cadets who go on to serve the nation through the
many military bases across the world.
West Point campus is situated on high ground sprawled over 16,080 acres
and overlooks the Hudson River. It is a national landmark and also popular
tourist spot, filled with monuments, museums and other places of interest.
The academy takes in around 1300 cadets every year, but only a 1000 of
them graduate. Most of these graduates are commissioned in the army, as
second lieutenants. The strength of the academic staff at the academy
is around 580.
The academy had enrolled its first female cadets in 1976, and over the
years, it has also appointed several women cadets in the rank of First Captain.
West Point Community
The West Point academy is known to have an active student community and
several facilities that the cadets would need during their four-year stay
there. Besides bachelor programs, the academy also hosts several sporting
and athletic events that the cadets participate in, owing to mandatory
participation in competitive sports. The official athletics team of the
academy is called the Army Black Knights. West Point also fields nine
women's and fifteen men's NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) teams.
The competitive spirit and the sense of community at the academy may be
very strong, but amidst the pressure to perform athletically and also
adhere to the Cadet Honor Code, young students at the academy may get
into minor tiffs and sometime major fights that result in violent crimes.
Dealing with serious criminal charges in a military court is something
that cadets cannot handle by themselves, without the assistance of a
West point UCMJ attorney like Joseph L. Jordan.
