Combat Training at West Point. July 2008.

Spent most of yesterday in the field at West Point observing their cadet summer training, including instruction by active duty soldiers from the Army's 10th. Mountain Division in Fort Drum, NY. These soldiers are at West Point for the summer training with the cadets, sharing their combat tactics & experiences while fighting in Iraq & Afghanistan. Karen Hughes, the former White House official and Counsel to the President, was there in the field with other members of the West Point Board of Visitors.
