5 ARMY MEN S SOCCER THE UNITED STATES MILITARY ACADEMY
6 The mission of the U.S. Military Academy is to 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, Country; professional growth throughout a career as an offi cer in the U.S. Army; and a lifetime of selfl ess service to the Nation. Founded on March 16, 1802, the Academy celebrated its Bicentennial in But West Point s role in America s history dates to the Revolutionary War, when both sides realized the strategic importance of the commanding plateau on the west bank of the Hudson River. Gen. George Washington considered West Point to be the most strategic position in America. He personally selected Thaddeus Kosciuszko, one of the heroes of Saratoga, to design the fortifi cations in 1778 after problems arose with French engineers originally placed in charge of the design. In 1779, General Washington transferred his headquarters to West Point. Continental soldiers built forts, batteries and defensive barriers. A 100-ton iron chain was extended across the Hudson to control river traffi c. Today, several links from that chain are arranged at Trophy Point as a reminder of West Point s original fortifi cations. In 1802 President Thomas Jefferson signed the legislation establishing the U.S. Military Academy to create an institution devoted to the arts and sciences of warfare. This effectively eliminated America s wartime reliance on foreign engineers and artillerists. West Point became the nation s fi rst engineering school and served as the model for engineering programs which were eventually established at other colleges. Col. Sylvanus Thayer, the Father of the Military Academy, served as Superintendent from 1817 through He upgraded academic standards, instilled military discipline and emphasized honorable conduct. Early graduates were largely responsible for the construction of the nation s initial railway lines, bridges, harbors, and roads. Although the curriculum maintains its focus on engineering, in recent decades the program of instruction has markedly changed, providing cadets a selection of more than 40 majors. This tradition of academic and military excellence, guided by a demanding standard of moral and ethical conduct, remains the cornerstone of the West Point experience. It is said at West Point that much of the history we teach was made by those people we taught. The Academy has produced famous leaders throughout its illustrious past Civil War Generals Grant, Sherman, Lee, and Jackson, to name but a few. In World War I, 34 of the 38 corps and division commanders were graduates. World War II would see many graduates reach brigadier general or higher, to include Eisenhower, MacArthur, Bradley and Patton. In more recent confl icts, MacArthur, Ridgway, Westmoreland, Abrams, Schwarzkopf and Abizaid were in command. Academy graduates have also excelled in air and space exploration, and countless others went on from military service to become leaders in medicine, law, business, religion and science. Since its founding, the Military Academy fulfi lls the same mission as it always has... to educate, train, and inspire the Corps of Cadets. It accomplishes this mission by developing cadets in three essential areas: intellectual, physical and military. These developmental paths are balanced and fully integrated into the daily life of each young man and woman at the Academy. Intellectual growth is fostered through an academic curriculum that provides a broad liberal education in the arts and sciences. The electives program builds upon the foundation of the core, allowing cadets to develop even greater competence in selected areas. In addition, the fi elds-of-study and majors nurture the development of creativity, critical thinking, and self-directed learning, essential characteristics of 21st century offi cers. The four-year academic experience leads to a bachelor of science degree and a commission as a second lieutenant in the Army. Physical development is achieved through a rigorous athletic and physical education program. Each cadet participates at the intercollegiate, club or intramural level each semester. This readies the cadet for the physical demands of military life and helps teach good judgment and self-discipline, even while under mental and physical stress. Military development begins with the cadet s fi rst day at West Point. Most military training takes place during the summer, with new cadets undergoing Cadet Basic Training, or Beast Barracks, their fi rst year, followed the second summer by Cadet Field Training. Cadets spend their third and fourth summers serving in active Army units around the world; attending specialty training such as airborne, air assault or northern warfare or helping to train the fi rst- and second-year cadets. The Cadet Leader Development System seeks to give the cadets increasing responsibility until they are ready to receive their commissions and assume their duties as leaders in today s Army. Moral and ethical values guide cadets throughout their four years at West Point. Commitment to the Academy s Bedrock Values, based on integrity and respect for the dignity of others, begins on the fi rst day. Integrity is refl ected in the Cadet Honor Code which states: A cadet will not lie, cheat, steal, or tolerate those who do. Respect denotes that cadets treat others with the same respect and dignity they themselves would expect. At West Point, it is not enough to train leaders they must be leaders of character. Admission is keenly competitive and is open to young men and women from all states and territories and from every socioeconomic level. Prospective cadets must receive a nomination by a member of Congress or from the Department of the Army. The Academy seeks candidates who possess records of success in academics, athletics and leadership indicative of well-rounded individuals. Although the life of a cadet is demanding, there remains an array of club activities ranging from golf, skiing, boxing, crew and orienteering to such organizations as the cadet radio station, Habitat for Humanity and Big Brothers-Big Sisters. Additionally, the U.S. Corps of Cadets hosts a Special Olympics event each spring. Today s Military Academy is a vastly different institution from the small academy legislated into being by Congress in Originally just 1,800 acres, the Academy has grown to more than 16,000 acres. The fi rst graduating class numbered just two men; today s classes graduate more than 900 new offi cers annually, both men and women, who are prepared for leadership roles within the Army. With the expansion of knowledge and the changing needs of the United States Army and the nation, life at West Point has changed to keep pace. Ever mindful of its rich heritage, the U.S. Military Academy is developing leaders for tomorrow, and its focus remains the national needs of the 21st century. ARMY MEN S SOCCER

10 HOME OF THE BLACK KNIGHTS CLINTON FIELD 9 Clinton Field at West Point is named after Revolutionary General James Clinton. As one of New York s most distinguished military leaders during the Revolution, Clinton commanded troops throughout the Hudson River Valley including stops at Fort Clinton, Fort Montgomery and at West Point. It was at West Point in 1778 where General Clinton and his men began to throw chains across the Hudson to prevent enemy ships from traveling up the river. One of Clinton s most important missions began in November of Upon receiving orders at West Point from General George Washington, Clinton left for Albany to join forces with General Sullivan. Their mission was to help the colonists seek retribution against Indian and Tory armies who had massacred the villages of Cherry Village, N.Y., and Wyoming, Pa. Clinton s and Sullivan s forces eventually defeated their enemies in an intense battle in Elmira, N.Y, forcing them to fl ee to the British fortress in Niagara. This battle was one of Clinton s last, as he immediately returned to Albany and remained there until the end of the war. However, he would later fi nd himself alongside Washington during the British surrender at Yorktown and was later present at the evacuation of New York by the British. After exiting his military career, Clinton took an active role in politics serving as a member of the convention called to ratify the Constitution of the United States. Clinton was also elected a member of the New York State Senate where he helped revise the state s constitution. During the last few years, Clinton Field has received numerous upgrades. In 2006, the soccer clubhouse, located across the street from Clinton Field, was completed. The facility features locker rooms, a training area for the athletes, a team meeting room and a lounge. This gives the Army coaching staff the opportunity to take the team out of the elements during halftime of games to discuss strategy away from the noise of the playing fi eld. In 2010, the locker rooms underwent a complete redesign to better meet the needs of today s student-athletes. Over the last two years, a new fence was constructed around the fi eld, state-of-the-art goal barriers were installed on both the main pitch and the practice fi eld, stadium signboards were erected, banners celebrating the program s rich history were hung and tear drop fl ags were unveiled and a brand new scoreboard debuted. The playing surface at Clinton Field has been trimmed shorter and is a very fast track.

12 Director of Athletics BOO CORRIGAN DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS Boo Corrigan was appointed as the Academy s director of athletics on Feb. 1, We have an opportunity to work every day with a truly exceptional group of young people, Corrigan said. The opportunities they receive through intercollegiate athletics will help shape their own leadership styles as they become officers in the U.S. Army. We have a great team that focuses daily on our cadet-athletes. We strive to enhance their overall experience as they develop into the leaders our nation needs. In his short time as athletic director, Corrigan has strengthened and expanded Army Athletics relationships in several key areas. In his tenure, Army has secured a new apparel agreement with Nike, a new pouring rights contract with Coke and bringing in the Aspire Group to enhance ticket sales and better serve Army season ticket holders. Corrigan also crafted the Team Army concept, a comprehensive plan designed to add significant value to Army s corporate sponsorships while maintaining the tradition of West Point Athletics. Corrigan, who has a proven record as a fundraiser, spearheaded changes in the Army A Club and ticket operations that have resulted in more than $20 million dollars in major gifts and record-setting annual giving during his tenure. During that time the funding for a new lacrosse facility, that is scheduled to break ground, was secured. In addition to his role in enhancing revenues for Army Athletics, Corrigan led a strategic planning process that developed a new mission statement and goals for the department. In his first full two years at West Point, Corrigan has overseen a program that owns eight Patriot League regular season or tournament championships and sent eight teams to the NCAA postseason (rifle). Thirty-three cadets have earned a major award from their conference,. In alone, Army accounted for more than 100 all-league citations. Hockey s Cheyne Rocha and lacrosse s Brendan Buckley each captured the Senior CLASS Award in their respective sports, making Army the only school in the nation to have multiple winners in The season was one of the most successful in recent memory on the fields of friendly strife. Army teams combined to post an overall record of The program s.562 winning percentage was the highest in eight years. The winter sports programs had their best season in five years as the women s basketball team won the Patriot League regular season title, the men s basketball team posted its first winning season in 28 years and the rifle squad advanced to the NCAA Championships for the 10th consecutive season. It was also a great year in the competition against fellow service academies. Army split the season series versus Navy, , marking the best winning percentage against the Mids (.500) since The Black Knights owned a record against Air Force, improving the record to (.525) versus service academy foes in Cadet-athletes have continued to thrive in the classroom under Corrigan s watch. In his two full years, Army has boasted seven Academic All- Americans, including six first-team selections. Lacrosse s Brendan Buckely became the first Army athlete to capture Academic All-American of the Year honors in In 2011, the Black Knights football team boasted two first-team CoSIDA Academic All-Americans, a first for the program since Since the start of the season, Army boasts six Patriot League Scholar-Athletes of the Year, including Buckley, a two-time overall men s winner. Twenty of Army s 24 NCAA programs scored above the national average in the 2013 NCAA APR report. The men s cross country and wrestling teams earned public recognition for finishing in the top 10 percent of their respective sport. The cross country squad boasted a perfect score of 1,000. In addition, former football standout Andrew Rodriguez, Class of 2012, became the first Army player to win the National Football Foundation s Willam V. Campbell Trophy, which is presented annually to the nation s top football scholar-athlete. Rodriguez later was honored with the Amateur Athletic Union s James E. Sullivan Award as the top amateur athlete in the country. He was the first Army player to receive the award since 1946 and was just the third player in history (Peyton Manning, Tim Tebow) to win both the Campbell Trophy and Sullivan Award. Army has been the focus of national attention since Corrigan s arrival. He was instrumental in supporting the CBS documentary, Game of Honor, that chronicled the Black Knights 2011 football season leading up to its annual showdown with arch-rival Navy. Not only was the two-hour program broadcast to a national audience on Showtime, but also won the Emmy Award for Best Sports Documentary.
