Every spring, the Naval Academy Chapel bustles as former midshipmen get married

Published in the BS:,4079668.story

When the two midshipmen sat down at his Crofton dinner table four years ago, Greg Baur made one thing clear: His daughter was off-limits.

Baur was a little worried that becoming a "sponsor parent" at the Naval Academy - agreeing to play host to students on holidays and weekends throughout their four years - could backfire. After all, Mids can be fairly handsome in their uniforms....


Jessica and Joshua Lewis leave the Naval Academy Chapel after their wedding, one of 11 there yesterday and Saturday. The weddings are a tradition of Commencement Week in Annapolis.
