Cadet Evan Cross Gunn, son of Russell and Cathy Gunn of Palm Harbor, completed cadet basic training at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.

The initial military training program provides cadets with basic skills to instill discipline, pride, cohesion, confidence and a high sense of duty to prepare them for entry into the Corps of Cadets. Areas of summer instruction included first aid, mountaineering, hand grenades, rifle marksmanship and nuclear, biological and chemical training.

The mission of the U.S. Military Academy is to educate, train and inspire the Corps of Cadets so that each graduate is a commissioned leader of character committed to the values of duty, honor and country and is prepared for a career of professional excellence and service to the nation as an Army officer.

The West Point curriculum offers 37 majors balancing physical sciences and engineering with humanities and social sciences, leading to a bachelor of science degree.

Gunn is a graduate of Palm Harbor University High, where he was enrolled in the International Baccalaureate program. He plans to graduate from West Point in 2017 and be commissioned as a second lieutenant in the Army.
