Religious practices commended

Published 11:00am Wednesday, December 19, 2012

To the Editor:

We would like to share our support of West Point Academy and your practices in regards to religion.

We believe it is part of the core of our young leaders to have a strong moral and ethical bearing, and religion is an instrument to guide and teach them.

We can see the effects in our nation today when many people have turned away from these principles.

West Point graduates have moved on from the academy to carry our nation through many events that have formed the character of our nation. A religious bearing is key to these leaders now and in the future.

Stand firm — there is a nation of us supporting you.

Go Army!

    I was at the US Military Academy for a basketball game one Saturday afternoon many years ago. I can not put into words how impressed I was by the cadets and their behavior. They are truly some of the finest young people this country has to offer. I’m sure the same is true for the Naval, Coast Guard and Air Force Academies. God bless them all.
