John Windmueller Best Delegate Award "The Rocket"

The Rocket is given annually to the Program's best delegate of the year. It is named for the Program's first member to win eight consecutive first place awards at national competitions (gavels). John Windmueller is an active alum and donor who set the standard for all future delegates to follow. The Rocket itself is a M735 Armor Piercing Projectile, commonly known as a "Tank Killer." The Rocket was selected because it represents a weapon specifically designed to destroy a battlefield's most potent weapon, the tank. WAP's best delegate is recognized for having successfully taken on the best students that the service academies, Ivy League, Georgetown, Berkeley, and others have to offer. Each Rocket winner's name and year is attached to an actual M735 practice round for the student to keep.
