FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- Cadet Danna Funaro, daughter of Michael and Zhanna Funaro of Fairfield, recently completed Cadet Basic Training at the U.S. Military Academy.

Funaro entered West Point on June 27 and has successfully completed six weeks of CBT. CBT is one of the most challenging events a cadet will encounter over the course of their four years at the academy. The initial military training program provides cadets with basic skills to instill discipline, pride, cohesion, confidence and a high sense of duty to prepare them for entry into the Corps of Cadets.

Areas of summer instruction included first aid, mountaineering, hand grenades, rifle marksmanship and nuclear, biological, and chemical training. Funaro began classes Aug. 15.

The West Point curriculum offers 37 majors balancing physical sciences and engineering with humanities and social sciences leading to a Bachelor of Science degree.

Funaro graduated from Fairfield Ludlowe High School. She plans to graduate from West Point in 2020 and be commissioned as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army. Funaro is also a member of the Army women’s tennis team.
