Congratulations to all of the MIDS graduating next week!! We have given all 14 of our plebes their gifts. Yes, for most sponsor families, our plebes stay with us until they graduate. All 14 (9 USN and 5 USMC) got their swords and their other gifts. To the fortunate applicants who are part of incoming class of 2020, good luck. Dont let PS get you. Blend in and remember to work together as a team. Drink water even when you dont want to. Spring has been extremely mild here in Annapolis. Normally when that happens, mother nature brings on a nasty, sticky, humid summer.
