WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) - Former President George W. Bush is visiting West Point to receive an award.

The U.S. Military Academy’s Association of Graduates will present the Thayer Award to the 43rd president on Thursday night.

The award is given to citizens whose service in the national interest reflects the academy’s motto of “Duty, Honor, Country.”

The award is named for Col. Sylvanus Thayer, an early leader of the academy.
