    Hello to all!

    I guess as introductions go, I am a 2013 plebe Mom from Kansas. My oldest son will be joining the class of 2013 in just 10 weeks! (YIKES!!)

    I have researched for months trying to get answers to my many questions but still have a few holes to fill in, so I hope I can be of assistance with what I have learned, but also get the answers to what I don't know yet.

    GO NAVY BEAT ARMY!!

    I have found this forum ... and threads on the other Service Academy links very helpful ... much applies across the board. Another good spot is the college confidential website ... other very useful info posted there.

    My recent find: Advice on Plebe Summer. Basically don't over think/over worry about it ... I saved this bit from an older Mid:

    Look at it this way, it is summer camp on steroids and with guns! There is no need to over think PS.

    Another Mid wrothe:
    The situps, the running, the pushups, etc. Morning PEP makes up about 10% of your day.

    The rest is doing stuff that you would pay to do somewhere else.
    American gladiator? You get to do it.
    Shoot guns? We don't even have to pay for theammunition.
    Swimming? Fun to me.
    Sailing? On the Chesapeake bay; how cool is that.
    Listening to lectures? At least it is cool inside.
