    Vice President's Attending Military Commencements

Vice President Dick Cheney stands with the West Point graduating class of 2003 for the National Anthem at the U.S. Military Academy Commencement Ceremony in West Point, NY, May 31, 2003. "I trust you will always remember how others see the uniform of the United States," Vice President Dick Cheney said to the U.S. Military Academy's 2003 graduating class in West Point, NY, May 31, 2003. "Your service might take you to the most stable place in the quietest of times, but that uniform is a reminder of what assures stability and keeps the peace," Vice President Cheney said. "At other times, your service may take you to dangerous places; and there, the sight of an American in uniform will bring fear to the viloent and hope to the oppressed."
