Donald Trump’s classmates share their memories about his ‘Lord of the Flies’ days in military school

270-1R epublican presidential front-runner Donald Trump has cited his high school experience at the New York Military Academy as having given him "more training militarily than a lot of the guys that go into the military."

In recent weeks, Business Insider reached out to several of Trump's former classmates at the school. They paint a picture of Trump as a star athlete who rose to become one of the highest-ranked members of his class. They also hinted at regular hazing and fighting that went on at the academy.
