Getting accepted to West Point is an impressive achievement for anyone, so one family from Texas is certainly filled with pride. Brothers Sumner, Cole and Noah Ogrydziak were recently accepted to West Point and are expected to graduate in 2017, marking one of the few times in the academy's storied history it has accepted three siblings into the same class, according to The Associated Press.
Sumner and Cole, twins, are 18 while their older brother Noah recently turned 19. The last time West Point accepted three siblings was in 1981, when twins Rose and Anne Forrester joined their older brother John. As for the Orgydziak's, they seemed destined to attend the academy. Their family has a long military history, with their father currently serving in the Coast Guard and their mother having served 10 years herself. Regardless of how often they see one another, the brothers are happy they won't be alone.
"It helps knowing that your brothers are here, even though we're going to be separated all across campus in different companies, but I'm sure we'll see each other and it will help keep morale a little bit higher," Sumner told the AP.
Graduating from West Point is certainly no easy task. About 81 percent of admitted students make it through the rigorous coursework and high standards, according to The New York Times.
