Former Cadet Katie Miller (now Yale '12) was #9 in her West Point class. While at the Academy, Miller worked from within to change DADT.  Last week she resigned to attend Yale. Come hear what this very articulate young woman has to say!

Former Captain Jonathan Hopkins (West Point '01) was #4 in his West Point class.  He was selected early as a Major and earned 3 bronze stars. He was also discharged LAST WEEK under DADT.
