History Comes Alive - The Civil War Remembered

It's a class reunion at West Point and there's an excitement in the air. It's been 40 years since the class of 1843 graduated and former West Point grad and President Ulysses S. Grant is getting ready to speak. Patriotic music plays. He walks in confidently, but with no airs and welcomes those he sees along the way. What we're about to witness is not a schmaltzy eye roll-inducing motivational speech, but a great man reflecting on where he's been in life and what an honor it has been to serve his country. In the stories alone - from growing up with a father insisting he go to West Point, struggling to provide for his family, and fighting in the Civil War, to going head to head with some of the most powerful men in the country at the time (the formidable General Robert E. Lee among them) - there are lessons to be found if you just listen for them.

Army wants outspoken West Point cadet to pay up

An Army cadet who left West Point Academy just months shy of his graduation to make a high-profile protest of religious proselytizing at the school now faces Pentagon demands that he repay the cost of his education — either through active-duty service or by paying as much as $250,000. The notification this week that he would be hit up for the fees blindsided Blake Page, 24, who says that top leadership at West Point assured him that "recoupment" of costs for his taxpayer-funded education would be waived when he left the school in December.

House subcommittee should defund West Point CTC

Americans for Limited Government today urged a House subcommittee to defund the West Point Combating Terrorism Center (CTC) after it released a study on terrorism that Wilson said is targeted against regular Americans. “Not one more dime of taxpayer money should be wasted on CTC, which is indoctrinating our servicemen and women with brazen propaganda against the American people until this report is denounced and its author terminated from government service,” Wilson wrote in his letter to members of the House Appropriations Defense Subcommittee. The report, “Challengers from the Sidelines: Understanding America’s Violent Far-Right,” by Dr. Arie Perliger, director of terrorism studies at the CTC, was published on Jan. 15.
