It was a pleasure to walk around campus and look at the impressive buildings. I am very proud of the students who make a commitment to this institution and who continue the important legacy so many of the graduates have made to our nation's history.

Museum very interesting. We took the noon tour with a cadet. Impressive young man who told us about the school. Driving into the campus was quite a sight to see since the buildings are huge.
