The new faculty and staff from the Department of Systems and Engineering (DSE) hiked to Torne Monument. This site is only accessible via steep trails off Mine Torne Road, and began as an unofficial memorial for fallen West Point grads, as well as other service members connected to the Academy. Through the work of local Boy Scout Troops, it became a formal memorial a few years ago. The DSE faculty visits Torne Monument every summer to reflect on the Academy’s mission of training & educating leaders of character, who may be called to make the ultimate sacrifice.
