New cadets at West Point are capping six weeks of intense training with a 12-mile road march.

About 1,200 cadets will march Monday morning from a local camp to the U.S. Military Academy.

The trek is called the March Back. It’s the traditional end to Cadet Basic Training, a rigorous six-week program designed to prepare newcomers for entry into the Corps of Cadets.

Members of West Point’s C’lass of 2022 will be officially accepted into the corps on Aug. 18.
