Errigo Welcomes West Point Cadets to State Capitol
Assemblyman Joseph A. Errigo (R,C,I,Ref-Conesus) had the privilege of welcoming Cadets from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point to the state Capitol as part of the Assembly’s West Point Day. Cadets from New York State are invited each year to the Assembly chamber to be recognized for their contribution to the armed forces and to the U.S.
“West Point is one of the finest and most respected military academies in our nation and it is a great honor to welcome these Cadets to the Capitol today,” said Errigo. “I have tremendous respect for all members of the U.S. Armed Forces, active, reserve and veterans, and I have a special sense of pride knowing these fine New Yorkers are representing our community so well. On behalf of the residents of New York State, I would like to personally thank them for their service and I wish them continued success as they progress through the Academy and their future military service.”
The U.S. Military Academy was established at West Point in 1802 and has the longest continuous service of any U.S. military installation. Notable West Point graduates include U.S. Presidents Ulysses S. Grant, Dwight D. Eisenhower, generals and Medal of Honor recipients.
