WEST POINT – Lt. Gen. Robert Caslen, Jr., the superintendent of the US Military Academy at West Point, will leave that post this summer after completing a five-year stint and is expected to retire from active duty at that time.

He has served a distinguished career in the Army holding numerous leadership positions and earning several awards and decorations during his career.
