Becky “Beck” Halstead was selected to attend West Point in 1977--entering with the second class of women, and being the first kid from her hometown to graduate from West Point. Blessed to be the first female graduate of West Point to be promoted to General Officer in 2004, Becky served and commanded in combat as the first female Commanding General at the strategic level of leadership in Iraq, leading 20,000 Soldiers and 5,000 civilians from 2005 to 2006--a first for our Army and our Nation. In 2007 Becky received the National Women’s History Project award for “Generations of Women Moving History Forward”.

“What Makes You Tic?”
Marc Elliot | October 25, 2012
In honor of National Disability Awareness Month
At the age of nine, Marc was diagnosed with Tourette syndrome, a neurological disorder that causes him to make involuntary motor and vocal tics. As Marc grew older, his tics manifested in many different ways, from “ticcing” inappropriate words to blurting out random noises, including barking like a dog and chomping his teeth. Now at the age of 26, Marc has found a way to use his own story, his triumph over handicaps, as a way of helping individuals around the world find their own path to tolerance—for themselves and others.
