At some point in a person’s life they have to make a decision. A decision on what job they want to take. Whether or not to get married and start a family. Or, something simple as to what college they want to attend. “West Point constantly kept me out of my comfort zone, whether it was the amount of school work, demands for lacrosse, or the training I was required to participate in,” he explained. “Even though I look back now and find some of my trials to be trivial, I know that my ability to accept change and look for solutions instead of merely pouting, like many people of my generation generally enjoys doing, was made possible by all of the stresses that the academy placed on me. I learned to truly be responsible for my actions, and that excuses don’t change the fact that the job did not get done.”
Harrisburg teen Angel Rivera (7-2) was not as fortunate, in his 201-pound dustup, falling on points to returning national champion Mikus Igaunis of the U.S. Military Academy. Igaunis floored Rivera in the opening round, but the youngster picked himself up and went right after the West Point junior.
JERUSALEM — The U.S. military’s top general conducted an intense string of closed-door talks with Israeli leaders Friday, amid apparent disagreements between the two countries over how to respond to Iran’s disputed nuclear program. The chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, and Israeli leaders kept silent about the exact content of their discussions. Dempsey was expected to urge Israel not to rush to attack Iran at a time when the U.S. is trying to rally additional global support to pressure Tehran through sanctions to dial back its nuclear program.
GEN Dempsey graduated from West Point in 1974.
30 minute video - the story of Sylvanus Thayer:
SHAW AIR FORCE BASE, S.C. — The three-star general who’s taken charge of 3rd Army and ground forces around the Persian Gulf and central Asia has become a roving ambassador, traveling from his new command based in South Carolina to more than a dozen nations in those regions. “We do much more than what is in the public eye, more than what we’ve done in Iraq and Afghanistan,” said Lt. Gen. Vincent Brooks, who took over command of the U.S. land forces in a 20-nation region that ranges from Egypt to Afghanistan.
Just after midnight on New Year's Day, Antonio Buehler was out for the evening as the designated driver with a friend stopping at the 7/11 at 10th and Lamar to get fuel. On the street, Austin police had pulled over a car carrying two women, conducting a field sobriety test on the driver with the other woman still inside. "All of the sudden we hear this violent scream and see this muscular cop yanking this woman right out of the car," said Buehler.
Buehler is a former West Point officer who served in Kosovo and Iraq before graduating from Stanford with his MBA. He said when he saw the woman get thrown to the ground, his instinct to protect kicked in.
