    Quick glimpse of bgo's dd in there.

    I was going to say just looking at various pics looked like a lot of young ladies there. 31% is one of the highest numbers of women ever I believe. Good to see the minority numbers going up too.:thumb:

    The United States Coast Guard Academy Class of 2014. (U.S. Coast Guard photo by Petty Officer 3rd Class Timothy Tamargo)

    From The Coast Guard Compass - Official Blog of the US Coast Guard

    ...The afternoon ended with the new class of cadets marching onto the Academy’s parade field and being sworn in as members of the United States Coast Guard before gathered family and friends. Then it was time to say goodbye to loved ones and embark on one of the greatest adventures a young patriot could hope for. Those who make it through Swab Summer will be welcomed into the corps of cadets as fourth class when the academic year begins in late August.

    Nearly 4,600 students applied to be part of the Class of 2014. Only 385 of those were offered appointments to the Academy and 290 accepted those appointments and reported in this morning. The four-year experience which is Coast Guard Academy life is designed to strike a balance between the military training and college-level academics required to develop the knowledge base and leadership skills necessary for a Coast Guard officer to lead their juniors in support of the service’s missions....

    :cool:

    The DAY always does a really nice job of reporting on R-Day. Glad the USCGA allows the news media in to document R-Day behind the scenes.

    It is amazing to me that 1 year has now gone by since I was the worried parent. Our Swab was captured on camera getting measured for her uniform on R-Day by The DAY.

    Good luck to all the Swabs AND their parents! And thanks Luigi and Boss 51 for all your efforts.
