A New Class of Officers (Photos)

The U.S. Military Academy at West Point held graduation ceremonies on June 13 for its 2020 class of 1,113 cadets, which includes 229 women, 132 African Americans, 103 Asian/Pacific Islanders, 102 Hispanics and 10 Native Americans. Despite concerns about COVID-19, the cadets were brought back to campus and quarantined for two weeks after President Donald Trump said he wanted to give the commencement address.
