Thirty years ago, on Jan. 20, 1981, President Reagan informed Americans that the Iranian hostages were delivered to West Point after being held 444 days in captivity.

One of the hostages, Barry Rosen, said although it was 30 years ago, "It was just like yesterday for me."

He added that the moment of release was "very vivid in my mind."

Rosen, along with several of his fellow hostages , will come together at the U.S. military academy to share their story with the cadets.
