West Point cadet, mother Bonnie Carlson run for wounded military
A Rush City woman got to cross an item off her bucket list last month after completing an emotional run at the nation’s oldest service academy in New York.
Bonnie Carlson beat the nerves that tried to shake her by finishing the Cadet Moms Inaugural 5k Run on Aug. 25 at the United States Military Academy at West Point. Accompanying was her 21-year-old son Houston Carlson, a West Point cadet and 2010 graduate of Rush City High School.
It was a good day for Carlson and the other 80 or so West Point moms who helped raise money for Fisher House, an organization that provides housing for families of service men and women during recovery and treatment at military hospitals nationwide.
