Today is graduation day at West Point. Congratulations to all the men and women who are graduating and becoming officers today. This is the first graduating class at West Point that has trained all four years while our nation was at war.

West Point has had its share of loss in the War on Terror. “We will honor the memory of these great souls,” President Bush says. “We will complete the mission.”
