    :thumb:This great documentary is now posted online at HowStuffWorks:

    Check it out at:

    HowStuffWorks Videos "Surviving the First Year: Life in a Military Academy"

    HowStuffWorks Videos "Conquering Summer: American Cadets Prepare for Service"

    The third in the series is more disjointed but this link will bring up the right sections:

    HowStuffWorks Videos "The Making of an Officer: Curriculum and Daily Life"

    ^Haha. The above comment made me laugh...I really think "Outstanding" should become a basic response during swab summer...I know that in my company at least, "Oustanding" was the response to give whenever you were asked how you were or how the briefing was etc.

    Anyway, I watched all three episodes on the military channel on Thursday...slightly dated but I did find out that one of the 1/c on the third episode is now a LCDR and working at the Academy as an instructor. I thought that was pretty cool!

    LCDR Walsh...it says on cga.edu that he teaches Physics I and II. In the episode, he was talking about his 1/c summer.
