"West Point Military Academy: Off the Record"
Ryan Peckyno, a 2001 graduate of West Point, recently wrote a book, "West Point Military Academy: Off the Record", which is for sale online at Amazon.com and Barnes&Noble.com. He states that this is a great resource for both current and potential cadets, as well as family. Please consider visiting the website collegeprowler.com or either of the other two online retailers, and hopefully recommending this book to parents of cadets and potential ones as well. (Ed. notes: Parts of the book can be previewed at collegeprowler.com It IS a neat book. Wished I had it sooner! IF YOU PURCHASE THE BOOK, BE SURE TO LAUNCH FROM THE AMAZON BAR AT RIGHT TO GIVE THE CLUB CREDIT FOR PURCHASES!)
Cadet Handbook - An excellent resource for new cadets or prospective
cadets and their parents is available for viewing by the WPPC of MD-DC-VA.
A new cadet handbook is coveted prize of any plebe parent, and will
help prepare the parents of prospective cadets for what lies ahead.
To view the handbook, please follow the links: View
it online | Download
it to my computer. (The handbook file is a large one (over 3MB)
and will take a short while to open online and maybe not quite as
long to download. Either way, patience is indeed a virtue.) If you
need the Adobe
Acrobat Reader to view the file, click here.
