47 months, 47 months complete. I've been looking forward to this day for so long. Thankful for my family, friends, instructors, and mentors for helping me through this journey. It was a tough but very rewarding experience and I couldn't be more excited to be leading America's sons and daughters in the near future. #usma2017 #imanoldgradnow #unitedstatesmilitaryacademy

MOST RECENT

On #rday we finally got a glimpse inside the #cadetchapel It is uniquely beautiful and inspiring with the stained glass, intricate ceiling and rows of flags.

Hey hey, ya'll! I am so happy to report that we have successfully relocated from NY to WA - and are settling in nicely into our new environment! I expect to have business up and running shortly, and am super excited to introduce a few new items to you then. I'm also thinking an awesome "reopening" sale will be totally necessary, don't you?! Happy Thursday, everyone!

#tbt to the old corps days when wearing white collars over your full dress and carrying around sabers was a thing. 🗡

Old corps photos are a tradition every firstie participates in nearing the end of their 47 month journey. Often a representation of past generation cadets, the "old corps", firsties dawn their full dress uniform with their saber belt/saber, gather with their company classmates, and strike poses (often looking into a distance) in front of Nininger Hall (the last standing building that was part of the original Central Barracks from the mid nineteenth century). Cadets also take photos with their teammates or close friends they have built strong bonds with over the years. The photos are usually in black and white or sepia tone but some people like them in color too. I know the Rugby team has a tradition of wearing kilts in their photos. At the end of the day, it's a great tradition with many memories to reflect back on.

#July4_1802 – 🌎🌐🌍At #WestPoint, #NewYork, the #UnitedStatesMilitaryAcademy opens. *West Point is the oldest continuously occupied #military_post in the United States. West Point was established in 1775 by #GeorgeWashington who considered it the most important strategic position in #America. Until January 1778, West Point was not occupied by the military. On January 27, 1778, Brigadier General #SamuelHoldenParsons and his brigade crossed the ice on the #HudsonRiver and climbed to the plain on West Point and from that day to the present, West Point has been occupied by the #UnitedStates_Army. It comprises approximately 16,000 acres (6,500 ha) including the campus of the United States Military Academy at West Point, which is also frequently called "West Point". It is a #CensusDesignatedPlace (#CDP) located in the #Town_of_Highlands in #OrangeCounty, New York,[2][3] located on the western bank of the #Hudson_River. The population was 6,763 at the 2010 census. It is part of the New York–#Newark–#JerseyCity, NY–NJ–PA Metropolitan Statistical Area as well as the larger New York–Newark, NY–NJ–CT–PA Combined Statistical Area.

🎒Ruck marches. The ultimate solo trek that challenges you both physically and mentally. In your military career, you will do anywhere from 3-12 miles (sometimes more for badges or challenges- GoRuck?) and they are graded for time. The standard is generally 15 minutes per mile (12 miles in under 3 hours). At minimum, you will carry 35 lbs in your ruck sack (in Ranger school, you will carry anywhere from 65-90 lbs at a time). Don't forget about the additional weight of a weapon and water.

Try to place most of the weight in the middle of your ruck (closest to your spine) so that the weight is evenly distributed. In addition to the straps on your shoulders, utilize the waist straps (if you are allowed to) so that you can distribute some of the weight to your hips and not solely on your shoulders. I generally place items that I often use in the outer pouches or near the top of the ruck (i.e. poncho is readily accessible in the event it rains, you can waterproof your gear). Place your clothes and sleeping bag at the bottom compartment so it can push some the heavier weight towards the middle. Adjust your shoulder straps so that it doesn't dig into your arm pits (should fit comfortably). Don't forget to secure down ALL of your straps with duct tape so that they aren't flying everywhere when you're jogging downhill.
.

Your train up should progressively get harder (heavier, further, faster, etc). Start by just wearing combat boots and anything other than a uniform. Pack your ruck correctly but keep it light. Plan on rucking for at least a mile and time yourself. Slowly increase the weight and the distance throughout your training period. Try different routes, terrain, elevation, and weather. Find your happy place while you're rucking to keep your mind occupied. It makes the time go by quicker and the pain less noticeable.

Don't forget to break in your boots otherwise you will destroy your feet with multiple blisters (this is where the moleskin will come into play).

Our last dinner together before Whitney flies to New York for college /: Thank you @kitayama.newport for making our visit so special. #lastmeal #unitedstatesmilitaryacademy #kitayama #japanese #dinner #family #newportbeach #orangecounty

⏳ 6 days until Beast! 🙈To some, time is flying by and to others, it may seem like an eternity. You are about to embark on an exciting, new chapter in your life. It is daunting at first glance and uncertain to many. I am sure the feeling of nervousness or anxiety has kicked in. And you may be thinking, "what did I get myself into"? (I have asked this question many times throughout my academic and military career). 🤷🏻‍♂️
.
It's alright. It's okay to feel that way. It's completely normal. You care and you want to do your best. You have high hopes, high expectations, and you don't want to let anyone down.
.
However, don't doubt yourself. Don't doubt your abilities to think outside the box. 📦 You are smart and a high achiever. You have the determination, the persistence, and the grit to keep going - especially when times get tough. Don't doubt your athleticism. 🏋🏻 You know that feeling, when your body has built up lactic acid, and yet you continue to move forward. Push yourself. Push your mind and your body outside of its limits. Be courageous. Take the leap of faith. Trust yourself, your equipment, your battle buddies, and your leadership. They won't lead you astray -- only towards victory. Be confident...but remain humble. You only know what you know. Recognize what you don't. Share your expertise with your battle buddies. And ask for help when you are struggling. That's true strength. 💪🏻 Go in with an open mind and see things from a different perspective. 👀 Things will change frequently so be flexible and adaptable.
.
Many have come before you and they made it. You will too! This experience is what you make of it. Go in with a good attitude and be willing to learn as much as you can. 📚This is YOUR four year experience. How do you want to remember it? 🤔 Don't forget that end goal in your mind. Make it a reality! 🎓
