Response to Major Nikon (Reply #3)

4. I don't deny that for one bit

but you can't let one person defile the institution. Many of my family members graduated from the Academy and by no means were they rich or trouble makers. Of course, I'm talking 1916 thru 1952. Only in the mid to late 60s did private military academies become havens for the really rich, brat kids.

At one point in time, NYMA considered themselves the unofficial prep school for West Point.....many went there hoping that they could get an appointment to the Point.

I apologize if I came across the wrong way.
