How I got my appointment to West Point

It was a bone chilling December morning as my rifle company formed up for another day in the field. There were about two inches of ice on the ground and a strong wind was blowing across the open field. First Sergeant Saline asked if anyone wanted to take a test to go to West Point.

I quickly considered the options, go to the field or take a test in a warm building. The latter choice won out. I was told to report to battalion headquarters and left the formation amid the snickers of my company mates. I spent most of the day taking tests, enjoying the warm surrounding and making a lot of SWAGs at the answers.

About two weeks later I received notice that I rated high enough on the test to attend the United States Military Academy Prep School (USMAPS) at Stewart Air Force Base, NY.

Going back, this whole adventure started when I joined E Company, 112th Infantry, 28th Infantry Division, Pennsylvania National Guard while in high school. Three years later in June 1950 we were at then Camp Indiantown Gap, PA for summer training. The battalion commander gathered the unit together and told us that North Korea had invaded South Korea, the 28th Division had been placed on active federal service, and we were to prepare to move to South Korea.

For some reason the orders were changed and the division when to Camp Atterbury, IN and eventually to Germany instead. It was there on that cold morning that I raised my hand. In January 1951 I reported to USMAPS where our group received intense instruction before taking the entrance exam in April. I passed the test high enough to receive a competitive appointment. And that is how Sergeant Jim Fiscus went to West Point.
