To all of you in the Class of 2016, 2017, and so on... Here is a piece of advice that I wish someone had told me earlier. The Navy as you may or may not know is downsizing. This includes USNA and they are begining to separate people for not being able to pass certain swim tests. They are not kidding around. If you dont know how to swim Plebe year, you are in a deep hole. Right now I am missing 2 tests that I do not think I will be able to pass by the end of the Academic Year so I will be separated from the Academy. I did not know how to swim when I got here and even though I have learned how to, the needs of the Navy outway any individuals personal acomplishments It is horrible sittuation to be in but hey, the Navy is a business. Trust me you do not want to be in this sittuation.
