    Plebes Dropping Already

    PCR tests are based on DNA probes and are extremely specific and sensitive. False + beyond rare. False - mainly due to collection issues.

    Plebes Dropping Already

    Thank you for keeping us updated and sharing your insight. I was curious how prevalent Plebe Hack would be this summer, with all the precautions from Covid. I was also curious how it would be handled if a plebe presented with Plebe Hack symptoms. It's understandable the protocol is to ROM...

    Care Packages to USNA

    Send as many as you want. People over think this. Their may be one or two hard a$$ detailers, but most don't care. We did not realize, but our DD was known to get more than her share of care packages. She had aunts and friends plus us sending them. I would put things in there to embarrass...

    The Waiting List

    There is some conjecture/urban legend around what happened. I won't repeat it here. I will say the young ladies name will remain lore in my family for ever. We will never forget the detailers walking the yard yelling for her. One of the few specifics my Mid remembers from I Day.

    16 Cadets Test Positive

    Very misleading. This is a virus that attacks the elderly and those with underlying conditions. Look at the facts. Of the 39K plus of people who passed in Italy less than 1% were under 50. That's 350. In my state 97% of deaths are over 60 (and this is not taking into account underlying...
