    Can anyone guide us (parents of a plebe) as to how, where and when to position ourselves on the Friday morning of Parents' Weekend to see the plebes' last morning of PEP? Which field, etc?

    PEP is done on the turf field behind 8th wing. Any area around there you can see it. If things haven't hanged PEP starts around 6 am. And is it their last morning of it? I think we had it and our PRT the week after Parents weekend, has that changed?

    Thanks for posting time2. Was wondering if it was a part of the weekend this year or not.

    Our understanding is that PRT is tomorrow/Thursday morning, then Friday will be the last day of early-morning PEP. It's true that the Academy's official position is to not encourage parents to come to it, mostly (we were told by the Navy operator who took our call) because they don't have enough support at the gates that early to accommodate large groups of visitors. That being said, we deduced that we would not be denied entry… but we will be on our own to figure out where to go in hopes of seeing them run in, as described in the "Parents of USNA Midshipmen" website's description of PPW.

    Last year they did a PT session on Saturday morning that they called "Braveheart." My son said it was a pretty intense workout.
