Cadet Tom Surdyke died on June 30,2016. He willingly gave his life to save a swimmer in distress off the beach of Long Island. The distressed swimmer lived because of Tom’s unselfish act. Tom gave his life in service for others.
6 young graduates or cadets have died since June 2, 2016 . Watch to the end to see their names. For me, this video epitomizes the spirit and mission of West Point.
The images and music were created and produced by the Corps of Cadets as a memorial for these young heroes.
