Washington, June 13

Second Lieutenant Anmol Narang will create history by becoming the first observant Sikh to graduate from the prestigious United States Military Academy at West Point on Saturday. US President Donald Trump will deliver remarks at the 2020 US Military Academy at West Point graduation ceremony.

"I am excited and honoured to be fulfilling my dream of graduating from West Point on Saturday," 2LT Narang said in a statement on the eve of the historic occasion.

"The confidence and support of my community back home in Georgia has been deeply meaningful to me, and I am humbled that in reaching this goal, I am showing other Sikh Americans that any career path is possible for anyone willing to rise to the challenge," she said. Narang will complete her Basic Officer Leadership Course (BOLC) at Fort Sill in Lawton, Oklahoma. — PTI
