Cadets in Vietnam Meet with Grads from Avenue
Cadets on the Vietnamese Normalization Staff Ride met with several West Point Alumni from Point Avenue, a business that provides English language college preparatory education and leadership skills for future Vietnamese leaders, to learn about small businesses operating in the Vietnamese economy and the challenges they face and the successes they achieve. The group offered unique perspectives on the lives of American citizens living in Vietnam, as well as sharing some of their military experiences with the cadets. In the afternoon, the group visited the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum and Museum. There, cadets learned more about the French occupation of Vietnam and Ho Chi Minh’s efforts to achieve an independent and communist Vietnam.
