West Point cadets honor Peter Zhu PDF Print E-mail
A West Point cadet who was mortally injured on a ski slope last month was honored in a tribute at the military academy in advance of his funeral Thursday.

Cadet Peter Zhu’s company on Tuesday trekked more than six miles to the slope on academy grounds where Zhu, 21, was found unconscious on Feb. 23, according to a post on the West Point Facebook page.

Members of Zhu’s company, Company E1, traveled with their military issued gear and carried Zhu’s ruck, or backpack, to Victor Constant Ski Area.
 
 “What we didn’t expect was that we would be joined by approximately 200 others from the Corps of Cadets,” Felix Rosa Negron, a member of the Class of 2020, said in the Facebook post. “We carried his ruck untouched as we found it, and reminisced about our experiences with him.”
