WPP-NET stands for "West
Point Parents Net". This is the net used by our parent
moderators to pass "hard news" information to all parents
who have an e-mail address in the west-point.org system.
is a closed net and the only person who can post messages to
this net is the wpp-net
moderator. This net operates on a "push" system.
We push the information out to you unsolicited as we learn of
news from West Point. This net is not a "chat" net.
It is for information only. If you want to chat with other parents
then you need to subscribe to parent-forum.
Larry D. Smith,
PARENT-FORUM is a conversational list for upper class
USMA parents. Parents can freely ask questions of other parents,
and a few very supportive Grads, about any topic, such as "can
anyone give me information about Airborne School?" The information
shared on this list is very interesting and helpful, and the
topics frequently can be great fun. It is a list designed to
draw on the experienced cadet parent, and to assist those who
are just beginning the four-year journey. The over 1700 members
of Parent-Forum discuss/support etc. topics/issues of interest.
If you would like to subscribe
to any of the parent lists, go to the site (each list name in
this article is an active link to that list), and click on Subscribe
Now in the left hand column of that page.
Take the time to look at all
the information available to you by clicking on the other links

If you have any further questions,
