    What the HELL is the deal with Navy Football players?

    Recruiters, Headhunters, and other weird life forms...

    It's going to happen. You arrive at your first command, and the first piece of mail you'll receive won't be from mom or that Jessica Alba look-alike (multiple beers notwithstanding) you met a few weeks ago. No, it will be from one or more (probably more) of these people: Cameron Brooks...

    Choosing a Major at USxA...

    The question is asked several times each "season" as new applicants and their parents begin to pop up here. Lots of great answers have been given in the past, but I've been thinking about this lately as we have been interviewing some folks for some open positions we have. I may not be able to...

    Where, exactly, do the requirements come from?

    How were the eyesight requirements for the Service Academies established? Which is to say, how did "20/XX correctible to 20/20 without more than YY astigmatism...", etc. become the standard? I'd be very curious to see how they came up with the standards in relation to the needs of the...
