Before reporting to the Company 1st Sgt. on R-day at the United States Military Academy at West Point, future cadets must first prove they have mastered the skill by reporting to a Cow, or Cadet in his third year at the Academy. About 1,300 future Cadets report each year to the Academy on R-day which is typically held on the last Monday in June. (U.S. Army photo by Sgt. 1st Class Brian Hamilton)
