Hi Everyone! My name is Mary and our family is from CO. Our son will be a part of the 2014 Class at USNA. Jeff is our oldest and we have no experience with the military or with the academies. We are very proud of Jeff and are excited for this new adventure. The emotions that I'm feelings are like a roller coaster. Sme days I can't decide if I'm happy, sad or confused. I think what I need is a good cry so I can move on. Wasn't it just yesterday when he was a toddler? Anyway, I look forward to making new friends with all of you. I'm so impressed with the talent and maturity of the midshipmen. They are all devoting their lives to this mission and it blows my mind.
