    We ran into some folks at Costco last evening who are the grandparents of a young woman who is a senior in high school. Of course, we bragged about our son who will be going off to KP this year and expected to have to explain what the USMMA is. To our surprise, they replied that their granddaughter would be attending King's Point as well! She is the daughter of 2 Naval Academy graduates, she visited all 5 academies, applied to all 5 academies, and was offered appointments at all 5 academies. She had no trouble deciding to accept her appointment to King's Point, which she described as hands down better than any of the other academies. I thought those on this forum might appreciate this story. Congratulations to all the fine young men and women of King's Point!

    It's a small world!!! I have found that due to the pirates people have now heard of the Merchant Marine.
