 The cadet is as yet unnamed, and according to the Daily Mail the photo was taken in the Eisenhower auditorium 1-1/2 hours before Obama took the limelight.
A Times analysis of the badges on the cadet’s chest shows that he is a “prior service” student at the academy, recommended for a place there after active service in Iraq. He is an Army Ranger who has earned an Iraq Campaign Medal and six other awards including an Army Commendation Medal, an Army Good Conduct Medal, a National Defense Service Medal and a Global War on Terrorism Service Medal.
