I was wondering how many breaks midshipmen receive and for how long each year. In particular, is there a break after plebe summer? How long for Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc.? Also, what goes on during the summer at the academy? Do midshipmen have assingments? I know the first summer is plebe summer, but what about the other three summers? By the way, I will be taking the Marine option, if that makes a difference in the breaks. Please let me know about this. Thanks.
