They run a special program every year in which local folks can sign up to be "plebes for a day" to help the seniors in charge of Cadet Basic get ready to be drillmasters. I did it once while I was researching a story.

One day of being a Plebe was enough for me. Props to your son.

I was working up in the Syracuse area by the time he got there but I did cover a Colgate game at Michie Stadium he likely suited up for in '93. No better place for college football in the country.

We loved tailgating there! Terrific bands, too. I remember donating a big band chart, Revenge of the Cow, which of course is a reference to what West Pointers call juniors.
