Wisconsin West Point Parents Association
Our History and Mission
Who We Are
The West Point Parents Association of Wisconsin is a non-profit organization for the purpose of maintaining a strong relationship between the US Military Academy, its Prep School, the cadets, their families, and the general public. Parents and family of current and former cadets at both West Point and the Prep School are eligible for membership.
WWPPA holds membership meetings in the Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall for its Club members. These meetings offer an opportunity for association business, West Point and cadet updates, and socializing. Our meetings offer an opportunity to be surrounded by people that can clearly relate to what it means to have a son or daughter attend West Point and serve as officers in the US Army.
Game of Honor
Our club has offered information and support to our Wisconsin families and their cadets since 1975. The military life is new to many of us, so we're continually looking for ways to serve our cadets and families better. We are thankful for our officers and members, past and present, who have worked hard to make our club a success.
The mission of WWPPA:
To provide timely and relevant information to the parents and family of Cadets of the United States Military Academy.
To provide a welcoming and supportive association among the families and friends of West Point cadets.
To promote a favorable attitude toward West Point and its goals and purposes throughout Wisconsin.
To help with the recruiting of prospective candidates for West Point through public relations in our communities.
To organize social events amongst our members, the West Point community, and all branches of military service.
In addition to seasonal meetings, WWPPA facilitates social events like our annual tailgate party at an Army football game in the fall. Our club will also offer you opportunities to serve Wisconsin communities at events like the Verteran's Day Parade in Milwaukee or the All Academy Day in Oshkosh.
All members and cadets receive and have the opportunity to participate in the following:
R-DAY PARENT SURVIVAL KIT
TRAVEL AND LODGING ADVICE
