DARLINGTON - On the shores of the Hudson River just an hour north of New York City sits the prestigious United States Military Academy at West Point. Connor Roche of Darlington had no idea he'd be interested in attending the academy but when Chad Plenge, a West Point graduate from Monroe who Roche met at Badger Boys State, and another friend told him about it, Roche was convinced West Point was a good fit for him. "I went into the military blind," he said.
