    What a inspiring tribute, well done Mids.

    The program, renamed the Honor Salute, is now year-round and has grown to include more than 140 midshipmen volunteers who have visited more than 50 veterans in hospice, hospitals, nursing homes and their own homes to offer a sign of respect and a sincere thank-you.

    Wouldn't it be nice if this spread beyond USNA.

    Great program! I really appreciate how involved and well-throught out it is too. Great job to the midshipmen from the Naval Academy. Wish the headline was a little less morbid "final salute".... but nothing USNA can do about the Sun's headline.
