My daughter has accepted her appointment to the class of 2017. She was a recruited athlete with an LOA, so most of our admission anxiety was about whether she would medically qualify with her height of only 4' 9". Her father and I are both USNA alumni, so we are well aware of the "sandblower" challenges that she will face, but our current concern is about uniform issue. I am afraid to assume that her sizes will just be there for her on I-day. She wears a size 3.5 shoe! Are the initial whiteworks fitted at issue? Can she get them hemmed immediately, or should she pack a pair of scissors and some hemstick to modify her uniforms - or maybe we should try and get a pair and have them tailored. The coach has assure us that somewhere in the Navy supply chain smaller shoes and sizes are available, but I'd hate to have her have to spend the first days wearing uniforms and shoes that don't fit until they can get her size in. Am I worrying to much? The Academy is obviously aware of her height. Any recommendations?
