'SOFT' Panic Buttons
“Having a plan and practicing that plan could very well save your life when that moment strikes, since it always happens when you least expect it,” he said. “The tragedy at Fort Hood illustrates the need for us to be vigilant and prepared to act”.
West Point Antiterrorism Officer Matt Cassidy.
“We can never know when that moment might come, but unfortunately we are repeatedly reminded that it’s not a question of if it will happen, simply a question of when and where. The incidents at Fort Hood and the Washington Naval Yard are, first and foremost, tragedies for all involved; however, the lesson and the challenge for installations like West Point are to learn from these tragedies and to prepare more e effectively for the fluctuating security environment.
USMA Garrison Commander, Col. Dane Rideou
