Molding future Soldiers
The incoming class of cadets assigned to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., fire the M240B machine gun as part of their weapons familiarization training during Cadet Basic Training, Aug. 4, 2017. Most of the cadets recently graduated high school and have never operated high power weapons before. Instructors from the 3rd Battalion, 304th Infantry Regiment have been tasked with training incoming cadets at West Point for over 30 years. (U.S. Army Reserve photo by Sgt. Carlos J.
