Hello. I found this site about 8 months ago and have been amazed at the wealth of information that can be found about the Service Academies and ROTC. My son has been interested in the Naval Academy since the 5th grade. His desire is still strong and since we do not have a navy background and now have questions that I thought it was time to become a member. This is my very first foray into posting on any kind of internet related medium; therefore, I ask for patience. Thank you for this site.
