As the U.S. Military Academy is the preeminent leadership institution in the world, the focus is mostly on the development of future leaders. However, the West Point Community plays a key role in remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice and the impact it has on those who have served, who do serve and who will serve this country.
The Trail of the Fallen has made a lasting impression on most of our varsity athletic programs and many professional teams that have visited West Point.

The Army West Point rifle team was defeated by North Carolina State in their match at the University of Kentucky on Saturday. "It's been a rough two days," Head Coach Web Wright said. "Scores were lower than expected. Certainly not where we need to be." The Black Knights outscored the Wolfpack in air rifle, but it was not enough to overcome their deficit from smallbore, as North Carolina state won with an aggregate advantage of 4649 to 4634. Army firstie co-captain Payne Nunn was the team's top performer, shooting a program record score of 597 in air rifle. "The bright spot was Payne's air rifle score today," Wright said. "His 597 is the highest score a cadet has ever shot in competition. He has reached this mark a couple times in practice, so it's good to see him punch through the mental barrier and make it happen."
