1802316日是西点军校创办人日

--正!士兵们,列队!在1802316日,国会立法通过在西点 (West Point) 军事基地创建美国军事学院,这是世界上历史最悠久的军事学院之一。座落在哈德逊河西岸的西点军事基地,位在纽约以北50英里处,是美国史上运作最久的军事基地。这个基地在美国革命战争时,扮演着相当重要的角色。乔治华盛顿将军1779年在此设立总部,并且极力不让此地沦陷。你觉得西点军校的军事训练是什么样子的呢?


Atten-TION! Fall in, Soldiers. On March 16, 1802, Congress approved legislation establishing the United States Military Academy at West Point, one of the oldest military academies in the world. The site, on the west bank of the Hudson River 50 miles north of New York City, is the oldest continuously run military post in America. It played an important role in the Revolutionary War. General George Washington made his headquarters there in 1779 and kept it from being captured. What do you think military training is like at West Point?
