Lt. General Huntoon with Cadets

Lt. General Huntoon and members of the West Point Cadet Pep Band and Rabble Rousers visit with Vet Joseph Goodwin whose two sons graduated from West Point.

Sunday, January 2, 2011

Cheers of 'hooah' rang loud and proud at the Dallas VA Medical Center when the United States Military Academy Cadet Pep Band & Rabble Rousers from West Point paid a special visit to honor Veterans for their service and sacrifice. The West Point cadets came to Dallas for the Bell Helicopters Armed Forces Bowl game.

Lt. Gen. David H. Huntoon, Jr., Superintendent of the U.S. Military Academy, led a group of about 50 cadets from the band and cheerleading squad. No pep rally would be complete without the team mascot who energized the day for more than 150 patients, staff and visitors.

Patients said seeing the cadets was a good morale boost, but perhaps military Veterans at the VA brought good luck to the team as the Army Black Knights beat the Southern Methodist University Mustangs by a score of 16 to 14.
