Hello all! My name is Dave and I am a MIDN 4/C at the University of Mississippi. My step father is a USNA class of 1991 graduate. My interest in the Navy began long ago and in the Naval Academy not long after. However, in high school my focus and effort was in all the wrong things and I came to realize that the Academy was not in my future because of my own mistakes. Currently, I am a college programmer at Ole Miss, and I have recently begun to explore my options as far as the Naval Academy and Merchant Marine Academy.
