Murder conviction stands for ex-Army officer PDF Print E-mail
The commander of the 82nd Airborne Division has reduced the prison sentence but upheld the guilty verdict for a former lieutenant convicted of murder in the deaths of two Afghan men during a 2012 deployment, sending the case to the U.S. Army Court of Criminal Appeals.

Clint Lorance was sentenced to 20 years of confinement in August 2013. He is confined at the U.S. Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.

Lorance, who served as an enlisted soldier before earning his commission in 2010, deployed to Afghanistan in 2012 with 4th Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division of Fort Bragg, N.C.

"Maj. Gen. Richard Clarke carefully reviewed the facts of US v. Lorance, to include the clemency requests submitted in August, October, November and December 2014," said Maj. Crystal Boring, a spokeswoman for the XVIII Airborne Corps, in a statement. "After an in-depth study of the case, he upheld the guilty verdict from the court martial panel and directed one year off the original sentence of 20 years confinement due to post-trial delay. The case is now being forwarded to the U.S. Army Court of Criminal Appeals."
 
2015 – A Year for Change PDF Print E-mail
With 2014 coming to a close, we all have much to be thankful. We hope that WP-ORG has been able to provide you the services and capabilities you needed when you need them. It is our reason for our existence – to support your needs.

With the coming New Year, your organization will see significant challenges. Unfortunately, I will not be present to see all of these challenges through. For personal and family reasons, I submitted my resignation to the WP-ORG Board of Advisors.

Again, best wishes to everyone for a prosperous, healthy and Happy New Year!

Respectfully,

FD 36: WP-ORG: Communication PDF Print E-mail
To all members and friends of WP-ORG,

On behalf of all WP-ORG volunteers and the Board of Advisors I am happy to report that FD36 has been successfully completed and WP-ORG's operations are now funded for the next six months.

Thank you, and as is said at West Point, "cease work!"

The on-line donation gate has been closed and any donations that continue to be received by mail will be credited toward FD37. The final Donation Report may be viewed at:


WP-ORG could not exist without your donations and the tireless efforts of those who continue to contribute their valuable time.

We acknowledge that FD36 took longer than usual to raise funds.  We understand that this was due largely to our outage in April. Please stay tuned to changes forthcoming which will be announced on the CEO blog and the WP-ORG home page regarding our path ahead.

Again, thank you!

Derby runner-up waiting for the Belmont PDF Print E-mail

The 2014 Kentucky Derby was a bit of déjà vu for Dallas Stewart. Not in a good way either. The trainer entered his second Derby starter in as many years only to see both longshots finish second best. Now, just like with Golden Soul a year ago, Stewart has decided to forego the Preakness in favor of running West Point Thoroughbreds-owned Commanding Curve in the Belmont Stakes. For West Point Thoroughbreds president and founder Terry Finley, the thrill of having a Run for the Roses runner-up was not what he expected. “People continue to ask me if it was as good as I thought ... in fact it was better and more intense than I though it was going to be,” said Terry Finley, a 1986 West Point grad who founded West Point Thoroughbreds with his wife Debbie Finley in 1991.

WP-ORG System Status PDF Print E-mail

Members of WP-ORG,

I wanted to take this opportunity to let you know that we have finally restored our services.

Static web pages and individual e-mail capability have been operational since the outage occurred.

Initially our systems went down on the morning of 3 May and then came back up partially for approximately four hours.  The systems then went offline and stayed offline until today.

Our initial indications are that a massive failure occurred with our principal network devices.  We will work in the days ahead to determine the exact cause of the fault.  Additionally, I have drawn up a series of steps for an after action review (AAR)  that I will present to the board of advisors for preventing such an occurrence in the future.  This will likely entail changing how we operate, the equipment that we use and most importantly, how we communicate with all of you when an outage occurs.

It was regrettable that this failure occurred right in the middle of a fund drive.  To say that we let you down does not begin to describe what has happened.  All we can do is ask for your forgiveness and patience as we forge a path ahead that will ideally make WP-ORG better, stronger, and more reliable than it has been.

We will resume our fund drive activities next week.  We have placed our donation links on the home page so that everyone can see where we are at and what we will need to conclude this fund drive. Our home page is found here:

http://www.west-point.org/

Based upon our AAR and equipment needs identified, we may ask for your continued support in the future for capital investments that will likely be required to give you the level of support you deserve.  These capital investments will be over and above what we normally need every six months and we will clearly show exactly what these expenses entail.

Again, please accept my apology on behalf of WP-ORG.
