Things from the Desk of the Editor-in-Chief


  1. FOR EVERY HEART IN GRAY

    WEST POINT SOCIETY OF ANNAPOLIS ever been to Annapolis? Did you know there’s a Benny Havens bar seated right in the heart of Main St? Do the exchange cadets at Navy do an affirmation ceremony? MEET THE 2019 EXCHANGE CADETS


  2. THE DESIGN OF THINGS  

    FELT PENNANTS 2 years ago, when we started CADET, we set out to tell West Point stories and to make the West Point artifacts we wanted to hang on our walls and live on our bookshelves. We continually strive to create keepsakes that honor the traditions and heritage of USMA and do it with a modern design aesthetic.

    We're SUUUUPER EXCITED to introduce OUR LIMITED EDITION PENNANT COLLECTION. We've collaborated with Oxford Pennant (from Buffalo, NY + made in the U.S.A.) to bring these wonderful pennants to all you beautiful West Pointers.


  3. COLLABORATE & DOMINATE

    SPEAKING OF COLLABORATIONS just about every single day we get an email, phone call or DM from someone looking to collaborate OR we see an IG story or a Facebook post about two or more grads joining forces or promoting one another. It’s truly great to see. We couldn’t exist without the collaborative efforts of you - the West Point community. Thank You.

  4. FOR YOUR EYEBALLS

    PERSHING BARRACKS earlier this week we posted a photo of PERSHING BARRACKS in the style of OUR IN GLOOM COLLECTION. We think it looks pretty striking. So did you…it got lots of “likes”

You may find yourself bellied-up to the bar, or at a late-summer family backyard BBQ, or a West Point Society happy hour and the question will be posed: So, what do you think about Army Football this year? How about that game this past weekend? Can you believe that Michigan game? Read More →

    PART 2 You’ve watched the film. You’ve taken your reps. You’re prepared. You’re ankles are tapped. You’re feet feel quick and kick-off is here. The crowd’s collective roar fills the night air. You can feel the energy coarse through your veins as you make your way from the tunnel to take the field.
