Greetings and Congratulations! The West Point experience for the cadet candidates, who are offered and accept the opportunity to attend the United States Military Academy, is a proud accomplishment for the entire family. As fellow parents, we know something about what you and your son or daughter may be going through. In fact, parents clubs throughout the nation are in place to assist in understanding the experience. We are also fortunate to have the opportunity to frequently visit West Point and share in the lives of cadets from around the country and world as they visit our homes, tailgates, and activities. This web site is intended to support the efforts of the parents and families as they support their cadets’ journey to join “The Long Grey Line”.

You are strongly encouraged to join and make the most of the WPPC of Long Island. It provides an opportunity for all members to share experiences, support each other and gain value information from the parents of other cadets. The best way to do this is by attending meetings and getting involved in running our Club.

Our WPPC of LI meets several times a year at various locations. We seek to keep our members informed of key activities in the lives of our cadets, recognize significant milestones in their stay at the Academy, and participate in the annually sponsored social activities involving cadets and families associated with all the service academies.

Again, congratulations to you and your son or daughter. Good luck in the weeks ahead as you each prepare for the journey to come. Let us know if we can help you at any time.
