One more sleep. One more sleep until graduation. One more sleep until hearing your name announced and walking up the steps to receive your diploma. One more sleep until the second lieutenant bars are pinned on your dress uniforms.
Saturday marks West Point’s graduation ceremony and the end of a challenging 47-month experience for the Class of 2013.
Close to a thousand cadets will participate in graduation at Michie Stadium Saturday morning and have the prestigious honor of earning a degree from the U.S. Military Academy.
Among those thousand of graduates are hundreds of cadet-athletes who contributed championships, victories, memories and much, much more on the fields of friendly strife.
