West Point’s vision is to be the world’s preeminent leader development intuition. We educate, train, and inspire the
Corps of Cadets so that each graduate is a commissioned leader of character committed to the values of Duty, honor,
and Country and prepared for a career of professional excellence and service to the Nation as an officer in the United
States Army. The leaders we produce will commit to support and defend the Constitution of the United States – and
ultimately fight and win our nation’s wars in accordance with the our national values.
The purpose of the Military Program is to instill in cadets the foundational military competencies necessary to win in

States Army. Our Vision includes: Produce leaders of character who demonstrate the mastery of foundational military
