The West Point Parents Club of Colorado hosted a send-off event in Castle Rock, CO for new cadet candidates of the Class of 2024. West Point Society of The Pikes Peak Region and Denver had a strong presence, even more importantly, four reps from USMA ’74 (50-year Affiliate: Bill Kenny, Steve Shambach, Rudy Veit, and Linda Rowe (West Point spouse and Mom!)).
It was a beautiful, breezy, sunny outdoor venue which allowed reasonable social distancing for the 130+ participants. Most importantly, 14 of 19 Cadet Candidates from Colorado with family and friends as well as close to a dozen cadets home due to Covid with their parents/families were able to participate.
This provided a perfect setting for current cadets to talk to the candidates while new WP parents received great coaching and information from the seasoned parents. “E'er may that line of gray Increase from day to day”
