The year 2002 marked the 200th anniversary of the United States Military Academy at West Point.  This greatest of all military academies has produced many of the finest officers to ever serve in the United States military.  This piece is a musical potrayal of the dogged determination, the indomitable spirit and the raw courage of the thousands of men and women who have passed through West Point for these past two hundred years.  It was premiered by the U.S. Military Academy Band at West point in January 2002, with Lt. Col. David Dietrick conducting.
