West Virginia is, once again, in mourning for the passing of Cadet Jacob Bower, 18, from Fairmont.  Jacob was a member of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, class of 2015.  He went to be with the Lord on Thursday, 21 July, while participating in a training exercise at the Academy.


   No further details are known at this time.  Contact has been made with CWO Christie Smith, CAO for the family.  She will present our offer to stand in silent Honor and Respect for Cadet Bowen tomorrow (Saturday).
