So, DS is in college and we have promised him that we would not open any correspondence from the Naval Academy without his permission. We have received an 8 1/2 by 11inch manila envelope, return-addressed from the Dean of Admissions, that contains a dark blue hard-covered item (slight rip in the envelope). My guess is that it is a Navy award/citation folder. There are also some soft items in the packet that make the envelope slightly deformed/irregular (i.e., it is more than just the hard-covered item). Is that THE BFE? If not, any ideas as to what it might be? Dying of curiosity.... help out DS' parents, if you can.
