    Check out YouTube. search for "USMMA Oath 2009", or try this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O-Md3q2Scqk
    look for more later this week. I also have the March on and presentation of the companies. I'll try to match with the program so I name them correctly.

    Another great vidoe and another chance to play Where's Waldo and try and pick out our DS in a sea of white.

    Since they take an oath to the naval reserve, will they get pay?

    No, USMMA midshipmen do not get paid while at school. While at sea they are paid a nominal salary by the various shipping companies.

    wouldn't it make sense that the midshipmen get paid because they are in the already commissioned into the military. At the other SA's(not sure about CG) they get paid but are not commissioned until graduation.

    While it is true that nobody receives their commission until they graduate, the other academies are sworn into active duty whereas KP mids are sworn into the reserves. As active duty personnel the cadets/mids from other academies are paid a salary. This also explains why they wear a National Defense ribbon and KP mids do not.
