A new face of the "American Dream"

Alix Idrache came to the United States as an immigrant from Haiti. He never thought he'd attend college, but he earned his citizenship and served as an enlisted man with the Maryland National Guard before his appointment to West Point. During the past four years, he rose through the ranks to be named Regimental Commander among his classmates. Standing ramrod straight with tears running down his face, he graduated this month.

                                                                                                                                U.S. Army
His first assignment is to Fort Rucker, Alabama, where he will begin flight training to become a pilot, something he calls truly humbling. "Thank you for giving me a shot at the American Dream," he said, "and may God bless America, the greatest country on earth."
