    That's like getting a card from an ex-girlfriend.

    Because New London is not like Colorado Springs. New London is a town which generally dislikes cadets, generally dislikes the Academy and only "like" us when it's politically convenient to do so. It's a dilapidated run-down town with little to nothing to do and I will NEVER claim that I graduated from New London.


    I will have graduated from the United States Coast Guard Academy, a fact that I will be proud of.

    I was under the impression that Colorado Springs also does not like US Air Force Academy. At least, some parts of Colorado Springs do. I don't understand why New London would dislike cadets, especially when it's the cadets that will be the future leaders of this country.

    I went to VMI, and the town of Lexington wasn't thrilled with us. It's a tiny little town, but they certainly did not seem to be the greatest fans of our cadets or of the students at Washington and Lee University. The relationship between USCGA and New London sounds similar.

    I grew up in Annapolis and live there now. As a "townie," I can say that Naptown loves it some USNA. There may be a few odd-balls, but for the most part, there is a great relationship.
