Press Release

Newburgh, NY - Representative Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) released the following statement after he attended his first United States Military Academy Board of Visitors (BOV) meeting on Monday, July 11th.

“As the son of a Navy veteran, being asked to serve on the Board of Visitors is an honor and responsibility I take very seriously. Serving on the Board and attending today’s meeting is another way I can get things done for our community – including our future military leaders attending West Point,” said Rep. Maloney. “From day one, I have been focused on getting results for our veterans, our active-duty service members, and military families. I look forward to fighting for our men and women in uniform in this role while helping to prepare the next generation of military leaders to face an increasingly complex network of global threats.”

After establishing a strong track record of getting things done for Hudson Valley veterans, active-duty military, and their families, Representative Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) announced he has been appointed by House Speaker Paul Ryan and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to serve on the United States Military Academy Board of Visitors (BOV). The BOV of West Point is similar to the Boards of Trustees or Regents at other institutions, and is charged with providing independent advice and recommendations regarding the Academy to the President of the United States. The BOV makes an annual visit to West Point to evaluate its operations and policy and then submits an official report to the President including details of their evaluation, and additional recommendations.
