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.
