    Hellz yeah. Welcome aboard.

    Now get reading:
    A Sense of Honor by James Webb
    The Nightingale's Song by Robert Timberg (a little dense, but still a mando read for USNA types).

    I-day

    We're probably not going to go to I-Day. From what I understand, the day is more about getting a tour of USNA, than it is about watching DS as he is processed in. And after completing his in-processing we would only get to spend about 30 minutes with him. I only get two weeks of vacation so I want to make sure I spend it well. We will go to PPW though, and I know we'll enjoy spending time with DS and hearing his stories. Does USNA take pix of Plebe summer for each class so that we can see our DS in action after the summer is over?

    profsparrow,

    The USNA PA team has done an excellent job in adminstering USNA's Facebook Page. If you have not already "liked" the United States Naval Academy, you should do that.

    I'm sure the PA team will be all over the yard taking pictures during the summer so you can keep up to speed on what's going on with the plebes.

    The Nightingale's Song by Robert Timberg - Must be an interesting read. My mom is in the group of first Vietnamese refugees to land in America. She experienced the Tet Offensive, witnessed bombings, and the whole war. Looking forward to reading it!

    Congratulations. :smile: I don't know if I'll be joining you yet, but I'm really happy for my friends and the people I see on here that have committed to the Naval Academy.

    One of my favorites -- set in the same time period (late 1960s) as "A Sense of Honor" but with a quirkier, more humorous tone -- is "The Return of Philo T. McGiffin." I felt like I was reading about some of my Plebe Summer squad mates. Funny but it does capture a lot of the emotions of Plebe Summer/Plebe Year.
