Today’s #VeteranOfTheDay is Army Veteran Becky Halstead, who was the first female graduate from West Point to attain the rank of general. Army Veteran Rebecca Halstead was a pioneer for women in the military, graduating from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in its second ever class to include women. Halstead grew up in Willseyville, New York, and became the first person from her town to attend West Point after graduating from Candor High School in 1977. [From VA News]
