Army and Navy Academy recognizes Do Won Kim and Dojun Kim of La Crescenta who have officially achieved cadet status after successful completion of plebe training. Their accomplishment was acknowledged during the new cadet recognition ceremony on Sept. 26.
“Plebe” is the official term for a first year cadet at the United States Military Academy at West Point and the United States Naval Academy, as well as at the Army and Navy Academy. New cadets completed a three-week plebe training course at ANA, where they learned the school’s history and traditions, the alma mater, and armed and unarmed drill. They were then tested on all subjects, and officially promoted to cadet after passing the assessment. Once named a cadet, students are able to move up through the Academy’s leadership program.
