We go to West Point to watch the football games, but we take a quick walk through the cemetery there on the way back to our car. Here are reminders of the real purpose of this place, and the outcomes of that purpose. Warriors more current and remote are here, and some of their families, and some names that we recognize.
We appreciate the football, the day, the view, the games, the freedom. We appreciate the service of those who attended this school. We remember here in this graveyard.
