Yesterday I took my son to apply for his passport, thought we would get a jump start on all the little things that need to get done before indoc. So the lady helping us asked him what he needed his passport for, he replied "I'm going to the United States Merchant Marine Academy" and then she says.... "Oh, is that like a summer camp or something?" He just smiled and said "yeah, kinda like summer camp". And so it begins..."You are going where? For what? I thought you wanted to go to college!"
