Happy Birthday, West Point!

On this day in 1802, President Thomas Jefferson signed legislation establishing a permanent military academy at West Point, marking the official birth of West Point – The U.S. Military Academy.

In honor of that birthday, we’ve posted a couple of our many photos showing visits by West Point Cadets to Fort Monmouth.
