Jan 13 - Haiti-born cadet weeps at West Point graduation

A touching photo captured the raw emotion of graduation for a Haiti-born cadet, who says he never thought he would fulfill his American dream.

In a picture shared on the United States Military Academy at West Point social media pages, tears stream down 2nd Lt. Alix Schoelcher Idrache’s face as he stands alongside his peers at a graduation ceremony on May 21.

Idrache, who knew only basic English when he came to the United Sates from Port-au-Prince in 2009, wrote on Instagram that he was overcome with emotion during the ceremony.

“I am from Haiti and never did I imagine that such honor would be one day bestowed on me,” he wrote.

Idrache said he was blown away by thinking about those who graduated before him.

“Men and women who have preserved the very essence of the human condition stood in that position and took the same oath,” he wrote. “Men who preserved the Union is a dark period of this country's history. Men who scaled the face of adversity and liberated Europe from fascism and Nazism.”

After moving to the U.S., Idrache became a U.S. citizen, and served with the Maryland Army National Guard for two years, according to a post on the official homepage of the United States Army.

Idrache told Army Sgt. Ryan Noyes that in Haiti people “don’t grow up to be pilots,” because there is little opportunity for fulfilling big dreams.

He told Noyes, that when he filled out his "branch preferences" he thought about his past, and what he wanted to accomplish in the future.

Remember seeing this last year. I thought of it when pretender of the United States was tweeting about democrats looking out for immigrants over our military. I'd bet he doesn't even know some military members stand to be affected by inaction.

Lots of Haitian Americans serving in the Army as officers... myself included, but nice article. My parents immigrated here knowing barely any English at 18 years old and both got degrees and became successful. This is par for the course if you ask any Haitian.

i have never heard of someone saying they have a bachelors in physics without majoring in it never met a engineer who couldnt do basic math calculations
And I never met someone who's never heard of graphing derivatives. I guess you know everything don't you?
