Lajeunesse graduated from the Vermont Academy of Science and Technology in Randolph in 2015. While at West Point, he concentrated his studies in engineering management. He was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army within the Infantry branch and will report to Fort Bragg, N.C. for his first assignment.

The mission of the U.S. Military Academy is 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, and country and prepared for a career of professional excellence and service to the nation as an officer in the United States Army.
