V.P. Joe Biden speaks at West Point graduation PDF Print E-mail
Vice President Joseph R. Biden told U.S. Military Academy graduates Saturday “it’s your time to write history” and thanked their parents for “teaching them to put something before self” — a message that parallels the story of Alexandra Baker,  a graduating company commander from Hartsdale whose West Point dream began to emerge when her father took her to parades as a child.

Biden, addressing the 218th West Point graduation, praised the parents for “molding such patriots” and instilling in them values that are “the essence of who we are” as Americans. Baker knows something of the importance of influences.
 
She knew she wanted to go to West Point when she was an Ursuline School sophomore in New Rochelle. But in some ways, she said, it all goes back to a childhood tableau: Father and daughter watching local parades that included tribute to Tadeusz Kosciuszko, a Polish-Lithuanian who fought as a colonel for the American Colonies in the Revolutionary War. He played a role in designing part of what became West Point.

"He's the reason I got in, pushing me to finish my application and just pushing me to do better," Baker said of her father.
