      We were quite shocked to find out that our daughter, Katie, did not get in to USNA, and it broke her heart. We can't imagine a more qualified girl that would take her place.

      Thank God she was accepted at her back up school, the University of Michigan or this would be so much more difficult.
      Thanks for all your help!!!

      Back in those days, companies didn't have much unique character. I don't ever recall anybody saying anything like, "Boy, I'm sure glad I'm not in 12th company." They were all fairly generic because things were run much more at the Brigade level. Companies did not have much latitude to unilaterally set policy apart from other companies. We all basically had the same privileges and same miseries.

      Today, it's seems like they are like mini-fraternities with unique character with drastically different policies. That may be a good thing - I guess. It's neither better or worse, just different.

      The notion that a company would have its own patch for sale in the Midstore would have been laughable in my day.

      Hello,

      So, I saw that you were in 5th company, and I'm curious what it was like back in the day. Just graduated from good ole 5.
