Anmol Narang, a second-generation Indian immigrant, born and raised in Roswell, Georgia, will become the first Sikh woman to graduate from the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York, on Saturday. Narang, a second lieutenant, will complete her basic officer leadership course at Fort Sill in Lawton, Oklahoma, following which she will head to her first posting in Okinawa, Japan in January of 2021.
“I am excited and honoured to be fulfilling my dream of graduating from West Point tomorrow,” said Narang who is inspired by her maternal grandfather who had a career in the Indian army. "The confidence and support of my community back home in Georgia has been deeply meaningful to me, and I am humbled that in reaching this goal, I am showing other Sikh Americans that any career path is possible for anyone willing to rise to the challenge,” she said.
