West Point Graduation Ceremony

At West Point on graduation day, after taking the oath and tossing their caps in the air, cadets react at the moment they achieve their hard-won dreams-- as graduating cadets at the U.S. Military Academy have done for over 200 years. After graduation, these young soldiers become commissioned officers in the United States Army.
