    Is there any information on video of bell ringing this week? I remember previous years there was internet streaming of the bell ringing after passing license exams.

    Looks like video will be a go. Not sure on the details, but as of 1300 DoIT folks were in front of Wiley setting up a camera for what appears to be a dry run.

    I hope they have the camera aimed better than last year! It was pointed toward the sun and you couldn't see anything but the kids shapes!

    Thank you to those who have posted here in the last two years for your advice and knowledge of all things KP. I want to throw confetti to celebrate the M/N Who got to ring that bell today. Although I do not know a single one of you in person ( I refer to you all as my invisible friends) I couldn't help the teary eyes and goosebumps from watching you all complete your work at KP!
    Well done!

    Found some pics Online

    Thank you to shotofighterblackbelt's a midshipman who took over 750 photos and put them online.

    Go to Flickr and search for USMMA Bell Ringing. Found 4 great photos of my DS ringing the bell while taking on the phone with me. Very, very proud now.

    Graduation day will be even better... Cannot wait. Congratulations to the Class of 2012. :beer1:

    Jasperdog,
    Congratulations to you, your son and the rest of your family. I know you are so proud!
    I don't know how I will survive waiting for Bell Ringing next year... I guess the same way we survived everything else over this tumultuous few years at KP. If our kids survive, then certainly we will!! :yllol:
