38 THE CORPS USCC—The United States Military Academy Office of the Commandant The USCC and the Office of the Commandant are located in Washington Hall, Building 745, at the United States Military Academy, West Point. Our Mission To educate, train, and inspire the Corps of Cadets so that each graduate is a commissioned leader of character committed to the values of Duty, Honor, Country; and prepared for a career of professional excellence and service to the nation as an officer in the United States Army. What is a Leader of Character? A leader of character seeks to discover the truth, decide what is right, and demonstrate the courage and commitment to act accordingly. BTD—Brigade Tactical Department The members of the BTD accomplish the mission in diverse ways. The company TAC Teams are the primary leader developers/integrators of the Academy’s developmental programs—they oversee each cadet’s individual development in the academic, military, physical, and moral-ethical dimensions within the framework of the cadet company. The TAC Teams train, lead, coach, and mentor cadets, with a continual focus on leader development. The TAC is the legal commander of the cadet company, and as such is responsible for the establishment and maintenance of a command climate which fosters individual and unit excellence in all program areas.
