New cadets from the Class of 2019 conduct rappel training and perform rappel operations at "Ranger Rock," located in the West Point training area, July 22, 2015, as part of Cadet Basic Training, or CBT. Soldiers from the 10th Mountain Division, Fort Drum, NY, provided instruction and oversight to the new cadets during the training, checking for proper harness tying techniques and observing the new cadets once on rappel. The purpose of CBT is to assist in transitioning the new cadets from civilian to cadet and to provide them with the values necessary to develop as leaders of character, strongly committed to military service.
