The first group of Class of 2023 new cadets experienced the gas chamber during Cadet Basic Training Tuesday. While in the chamber new cadets are subjected to CS gas to teach them how to properly seal their gas masks and to trust the equipment. (U.S. Army photos by Brandon O’Connor)
The #USMA Scuba team took 37 cadets to Dutch Springs, PA, to certify them as scuba divers. In true #WestPoint tradition, The four firsties, #USMA2019, on the team participated in their "final dive" by descending 25-30 feet into the lake wearing their Dress Gray uniform. Command Sgt. Maj. Thomas Kenny, USCC, also joined the group on Sunday for a few dives.

@armywp_football will be representing the @2ndinfantrydivision during the #Army vs. @morganstatefootball game Saturday. Cadet Benjamin Leehan was stationed with 2ID from 2017-2018 as an enlisted Soldier before attending the Academy. "The @2ndinfantrydivision was my first duty station after attending advanced individual training at @forteustis. It was very interesting going abroad as my first duty station because I could see that my presence made a difference on the international stage. Although I looked like the locals, I was wearing the American flag. I was able to interact with the locals differently, but I still represented the #USArmy." - #USMA2022 CDT Benjamin Leehan, Company E3
Fantastic weekend for Color Guard Academy. Delta welcomed cadets from Conroe, Lackland, and Thunderbird Composite @tx179 squadrons as well as Delta cadets. A fine group of cadets well suited to represent Civil Air Patrol and the U.S. Air Force in future color guard events. #civilairpatrolcadet#civilairpatrol#cadetlife#colorguard
