WEST POINT - Hundreds of cadets from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point are gearing up for graduation next week.

Graduating cadet Christina Plumley lived on base with her family for years, before beginning her military career there. She's one of a dozen cadets from the Hudson Valley who'll be graduating as an officer in the U.S. Army next Wednesday.

For Plumley and classmates, they're now looking forward to that traditional moment where grads toss up their caps. "I feel like that's the moment it's actually going to hit because leading up to that is so surreal, honestly," says Plumley.

President Obama will be addressing a graduating class of about 1,000 cadets. They'll have the summer off before reporting to their Army assignments.
