My Son and West Point -- How Did Four Years Pass In the Blink of an Eye?

copied from FOX NEWS

How do four years pass in the blink of an eye?
That's what I wonder as I sit alongside the hallowed ground of The Plain, a wide, flat, manicured lawn on the grounds of the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York. Story goes that, of all the expanses of green grass in this great country, only that at the White House costs more to maintain. 
On this Friday morning, The Plain is groomed to perfection
