E Company, 10th Platoon
That was my daughter's company last year. They will be company mates during the academic year.
All the best.
Haven't gotten anything yet - hope it comes soon!
Mail just arrived - nothing yet here in Michigan.
Nothing in New Jersey
Good luck there.
Nothing in Virginia!
Son's assignment - F Company, 11th Platoon -arrived in today's mail here in Northern Virginia.
H Company, 16th Platoon. (I thought the Company's all had numeric names, not letters)
How many during Plebe summer are in each company? In each Platoon?
Platoon 40-45 Comnpany 80-90
Ah sweet sixteen, The letter is the plebe summer Company made up of 2 platoons in your case 15 and 16, and the number is your ac year company.
For Plebe Summer only: Lettered Companies, each with 2 numerical platoons,
A Company - Alpha: Platoons 1 and 2
B Company - Bravo: Platoons 3 and 4
C Company - Charlie: Platoons 5 and 6
D Company - Delta: Platoons 7 and 8
E Company - Echo: Platoons 9 and 10
F Company - Foxtrot: Platoons 11 and 12
G Company - Golf: Platoons 13 and 14
H Company - Hotel: Platoons 15 and 16
I Company - India: Platoons 17 and 18
There is no J Company
K Company - Kilo: Platoons 19 and 20
L Company - Lima: Platoons 21 and 22
M Company - Mike: Platoons 23 and 24
N Company - November: Platoons 25 and 26
O Company - Oscar: Platoons 27 and 28
P Company - Papa: Platoons 29 and 30
T is reserved for use during Plebe summer - Tango is where a plebe that is processing out will stay rather than remain with their assigned Company
When the Brigade reforms you will then be in the Company that coincides with the numerical Platoon that you had for Plebe Summer.
Very helpful Profmom! Now just waiting for his assignment. Does the plebe's mailing address come in this mailing as well?

Good post. Tried to find that. When they march off after football game anyone in 25 through 30 will have a hard time finding a seat. They are tail end charlie.
I know that every company has their own traditions, but what are they? I only know of a few:
3rd Herd - spirit spot videos
9th Company Pirates - Painting Tecumseh
10th Company Titans - Honor videos
Lucky 13 - Army v. Navy Game: running of the football to the stadium from Bancroft Hall
11th Company Tigers - (NOT SURE) tailgating during football games?
I just found out my company assignment and was interested to hear which companies are traditionally harder or easier than the rest. I realize that things change from year to year based on SEL, CO and the upperclassmen.
28th "Phoenix" plays the Johnny's in croquet during the spring. Big tradition and big dressup for Annapolis.
G company - 14th Platoon (Kila Bees)
