    We now have a facebook group for parents of USNA Class 2016. Please join the group USNA Class of 2016 Mom and Dads

    Hopefully we can all get to know each other, share updates, stories, worries and most of all pictures.

    Can't find it. But, then again, I am not the most Facebook-savy. Can you provide a link?

    Parent's Page?

    Yes, this is for USNA Class of 2016. This was started by a dad who's daughter is an incoming plebe. He has said parents are welcome to join. Sorry for the confusion. I did not know there was one specifically for parents and so far, haven't been able to find the page on FB.
    Cheers

    Trust me, the Detailers have absolutely no time nor inclination to look up what parents are talking about. If a Detailer cannot find something to crawl all over a Plebe about in 10 seconds, they are doing a crappy job.

    Detailers always manage to find a way to find intel. Not that I'm defending the practice, but after moderting the "USNA Class of 2016" Facebook page, I've received a couple of e-mails about this. In addition, I also find parents who bounce between SAF and the 2016 page - sometimes I think they read a Facebook comment and share it here to gauge if their kid is competitive. I like to think of the Facebook page as a means for candidates to share ideas as they help each other. I've always welcomed Parents to the group and will continue to do so.

    By far, this is the most active USNA Parent Facebook group around. It is for all classes and it even includes sponsors and the parents of some grads. It is a closed group but some administrator will accept you promptly upon your request.

    Administrators from the Alumni Association even recognize it by posting official information there.
