    Do any military schools require Cadets to do summer reading?

    Midshipmen and cadets have required summer training that may include reading assignments.

    I know for KSU in general we are required to Read "The Namesake", and for ROTC we are required to choose a book by a Former Officer and write a detailed report of it.

    Navy Reading

    Although this is not manditory at the Academy, this is a fairly new program intended to improve leardership characteristics within the fleet. It's a great source for reading lists for civilians also. The collections are broken down into five catagories:

    Junior Enlisted Collection
    Leading Petty Officer Collection
    Division Leader Collection
    Department/Command Leader Collection, and
    Senior Leader's Collection


    Within each collection, it's broken down into the following categories containing two books each:

    Critical Thinking
    Joint & Combined Warfare
    Leadership
    Management and Strategic Planning
    Naval and Military Heritage
    Regional and Cultural Awareness


    the web site for this is:

    http://www.navyreading.navy.mil/

    Good source for vacation reading at the shore!
