18 things (we’re reflecting on) from 2018

2018 was special to us for many reasons. It’s the year we, the CADET TEAM, were married at West Point. It was the year we moved our operations and small family across country from Chicago to the Washington, D.C. area to embark on new, exciting challenges. And it was our first full year as a hard-copy, print publication. With all those momentous happenings, it can be hard to let go. But, it’s now time to bid farewell to 2018.

On Saturday, December 22, 2018 the CADET TEAM was hired to photograph the 2018 Joint Service Academy Ball. The West Point Parent’s Club of MD, D.C. & VA was the host for this year’s ball and several weeks prior they reached out to us. It was a perfect collaboration. Below are a few of our favorite images from the evening. The full gallery can be found by click the “view gallery” button below.

PART 5 - ODE TO JOY

How’s everybody doing? It’s Thursday and I miss Army-Navy.

You know, the anticipation of this rivalry is really quite palpable.

At this time last week we were frothing at the mouth, chomping at the bit, and sitting on pins and needles waiting for this game.

And it’s terribly possible that the only thing more palpable than the anticipation, is the Army-Navy withdrawal the week following the game. I know I am not alone on this?

ONE OF THE DEFINING MOMENTS IN KIM JUNG’S (’08) UNENDING LIFE ADVENTURE BEGAN WITH A DEPARTURE. IN HER DECISION TO GO TO WEST POINT, A REBELLION OF SORTS, KIM MADE A MAJOR DEPARTURE FROM THE CAREER PATH HER FAMILY EXPECTED OF HER. NOW, WITH COMBAT MISSIONS, HARVARD BUSINESS SCHOOL, A SHARK TANK DEAL AND A SUCCESSFUL, IMPACTFUL COMPANY UNDER HER BELT, KIM CONTINUES TO DEPART FROM EXPECTATIONS AND RELENTLESSLY CHALLENGE HERSELF AT EVERY CORNER

WEST POINT 100 | MIKE NEMETH | USMA 2004

CHANCES ARE, IF YOU’VE HEARD THROUGH THE GRAPEVINE OF SOME METICULOUSLY PLANNED, FLAWLESSLY EXECUTED, AND SMASHINGLY HILARIOUS PRANK ON THE NAVAL ACADEMY, IT WAS THE BRAINCHILD OF MIKE NEMETH (‘04). MIKE IS THE OZ-LIKE ORCHESTRATOR BEHIND AMAZON’S #1 BESTSELLING BOOK ON THE NAVAL ACADEMY (SPOILER: IT’S ENTIRELY BLANK), THE FAUX NEWS RELEASE FROM THE CITY OF ANNAPOLIS CELEBRATING “GO ARMY BEAT NAVY DAY” (YAHOO! NEWS PICKED IT UP) AND THE LEGENDARY “BARRACKS LINEBACKER” VIDEO
