    It's scheduled for Saturday, July 23rd...Alfa, Bravo, and Charlie companies will most likely not participate because they'll be traveling to EAGLE.

    You'll get your company/mailbox information about two weeks before RDay.

    Mystic Details?

    I need some detail information on what is going on Saturday July 23rd?
    1) When do the swabs march in and where?
    2) I am told the families and Swabs have time at the aquarium, when and how does this all work with the ceremony.

    I read the ceremony is at 11:00 but I was told the Swabs march in between 8:30 and 8:45?

    As much details as possible is so appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Parents of Swab of 2015

    1. They arrive at Mystic Seaport about 8:15, march in shortly thereafter

    2. Parents will have some time with them at the Seaport...the Aquarium is at a different location. Don't go there.

    3. After the ceremony the swabs return to the Academy...if all goes well they are granted liberty at approximately 12:30 until 6pm

    Actually here is the schedule just found it.

    0815 - Cadets arrive in Mystic
    0830 - Cadets allowed to tour Seaport freely but ARE NOT in a liberty status while touring. Can't leave park area for any reason other than an emergency.
    1030 - Regiment, Color guard, Regimental Band Muster at Boat Shed
    1045 - Regimental Commander sounds attention March to Chubbs Wharf
    1100 - Flag Presentation Ceremony begins
    1120 - Ceremony concludes - Regiment, Color Guard, and Band dismissed
    1130 - Cadets depart Mystic Seaport for Academy
    1200 - Cadets arrive at Academy, Liberty policy instruction
    1230 - Liberty granted, buffet lunch in wardroom (optional for swabs)
    1800 - Liberty expires.
