    Shown at the Plebe Parents Weekend brief on Friday, August 12th, 2016 just before Noon Meal Formation and release of the Plebes. This was the first Video using a Drone shot of the classic Bancroft Hall Class "20xx" Formation ( at minute mark 1:48 ), instead of a Crane:



    We had a great time, learned new terminology (hilarious) from DS:

    "Plebe Admiral" = Plebe with 2-3 additional black Name Tags pinned on the chest, due to previously loss of original, then loss of the replacement name tag(s).

    "Body Snatchers" = Detailers dressed in blueberries resting on one knee behind the standing Company formations on Worden Field (Parade Ground); their job is to quickly and discretely extract stricken Plebes from the formation, passed out from the absolutely brutal Summer weather.

    DS said they showed the plebes the video and his and his buddies' reaction was "that is nothing like what our summer was like".

    Yes, my son's reaction was that cheery music covered up a lot of suck. The video was definitely more for parents!
