    The PTR information also asks if you'd like to join the Naval Institute. I know nothing about this. Anyone have any thoughts?

    The Naval Institute is a fine organization with a great history of publishing respected articles, books and periodicals for the scholar/warrior community - Tom Clancy's first publisher! Not of great import to you and your plebe-to-be right now. They will probably have a table at the Parents Tent on I-Day, and in between shopping visits to the Mid Store and wandering around the Yard awaiting the oath-taking, you can stop by and get more information. Their website is also good to review, and you can get the feel for what they offer.

    The Naval Institute publishes the journals Proceedings and Naval History, in addition to many books, photos, and so forth. As a Mid parent and naval history buff, I have found both to be of great interest. Here's a link to the Proceedings home page. Note that some articles or portions of articles are available for non-members.
