"Our family stepped into an incredible world where every nook and cranny
permeates with history. When you walk through the campus, you breathe an
invigorating brisk air of duty, honor, country. The granite monuments, the
endless number of statutes, ancient gothic buildings and tear-inspiring
engravings, make you feel as if any minute Washington, Patton, Eisenhower,
McArthur, Custer, Stonewall Jackson, Lee, Armistead, Pershing,
will walk by to take you on tour. It's a living-
breathing monument to everything that is good about our country -- courage,
duty, patriotism, integrity. "
"While you are being seeped in tradition and American honor, you see your son
dressed in the same tailored gold-buttoned uniform that most of the bravest
and best men of this country wore -- it is overwhelming. Tears flowed from
all of our eyes to see the pride on his face and in his walk. My baby had
become a man."
