    Old Goats Club

    Sir, I've only seen references to the "Old Goats Club" on Instagram, although I wouldn't be surprised if they existed else (probably facebook) as well. I believe its just an informal group providing some sort of direction to a multitude of Old Grads who want to do something kind for the Brigade...

    Old Goats Club

    I was contacted by the Old Goat who had my PO box AND he was also in my company!

    I can't see myself in a sub.

    You're essentially correct. However, it is nearly impossible to NOT have Subs in your top 5 if you don't qualify for some screener-required service.

    What Should I Say to My ALO

    I’d recommend relating your reliance on primary resources rather than a reliance on SAF.

    Important matters concerning the existence of Humanity - BACON

    @justdoit19 I'm pretty sure that qualifies as a salad if you sauté some onions and throw them on top.

    She’s an all around stud! It’s nice to know the brigade will be in good hands next semester.

    Advice for Senior Year Schedule

    Having taken Calculus, Chemistry, and Physics will benefit you at USNA. My advice as a current youngster: 1. Look into which classes you can validate with AP scores. Take those, knock the tests out of the park, and instantly be ahead at USNA...

    What does the star on top of the anchor on the SDB mean?

    Stars and awards absolutely are required uniform items. Albeit, a never enforced required item. Technically, missing awards should go towards failing an inspection.

    What does the star on top of the anchor on the SDB mean?

    @usna1985 Points well taken, and I really liked your post. I think this missed the mark. At least at USNA, its simply an arrogance thing. No one wants to wear a gold star if their roommate is a 2.0 and go kind of student. I don't think any lower-achievers are offended by mids wearing stars either.

    The Citadel - Interview 20/21 Regimental Commander - NROTC - Selected for BUD/S Training

    I understand the appeal of writing about a successful grad, but why write an article detailing the life of someone trying to succeed in SOF? That seems like some sort of OPSEC/PERSEC issue.

    The Gunsmith Thread

    A discussion with my dad turned into a discussion with my roommate... Would you rather own a Beretta or Benelli semi automatic shotgun? (I know, I know, side by side is the only real answer here)

    What does the star on top of the anchor on the SDB mean?

    That’s about right. Although as @usna1985 mentions, they are technically part of the uniform. I’d say the majority of mids don’t wear stars on their blues every day because it’s a bit tacky and kind of like bragging (not really, but that is how it’s perceived). However, there is a time and...

    What does the star on top of the anchor on the SDB mean?

    We are encouraged to wear stars but I’d say roughly 60% of those on a list don’t.

    What does the star on top of the anchor on the SDB mean?

    Dant’s list is still a silver star. Stars are also worn on the left breast pocket in blues

    How to turn a 3AD into a 4 year AROTC scholarship

    Montana is freakin’ beautiful, and Bozeman is a fantastic location. Perfect for fishing, skiing, hunting, and I guess AROTC. *sarcasm* In another life I would’ve attended your school, sir. I can see myself living in Bozeman someday.

    2020 Army/Navy Game top be played at West Point

    I have a gold West Point pin on the starboard side of my combination cover. Unfortunately, an unnamed SDO noticed a couple weeks ago at a colors inspection. oops.
