Riverhead High School Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps cadets visited the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, New York, on Feb. 2. 

During the trip, the cadets explored the collection of military artifacts at the West Point Museum, watched a film on the history of cadet life at the site and participated in a tour of the academy itself. After discovering more about the academy chapel, cemetery and historic Trophy Point, the cadets observed an evening colors ceremony, complete with cannon fire as the American flag was lowered.  

The trip culminated with an adventure to the NCAA Division I hockey game, where the cadets cheered on the Army Black Nights.
