This usmaps c/o 2008 parent recommends buying stock in Wal-Mart. Maps requires cadet candidates to bring much of what WP furnishes. Oh, that reminds me that I need to buy a 'Robe, terry cloth, white' online because none of the local stores carry them. :rolleyes:

Commissioner - I agree! Last year I helped third quarter profits for Walmart and Target. My son went to NMMI and the list of items to bring was long. Checking out in Walmart it looked like a snowstorm in my cart...6 white towels, 6 white washcloths, 12 pairs white boxers, 12 white t-shirts, 2 white pillowcases. That was just the first trip to the store! :eek:

When does USMAPS report?

I'm sure it does have to do with the cost of the tickets. When I took my son to visit West Point we flew into Albany. We went from Seattle to Newark and then changed planes to fly to Albany. This was $80 per ticket cheaper than just flying Seattle to Newark! I thought about buying the tickets to Albany and then just getting off in Newark. I'm glad we went on to Albany, it's a small airport and a lot less traffic than Newark. Easy drive south to West Point.

My son is going it alone. Only 4 more days until he leaves. :frown:
