So, I'm pretty sure i'll be going to usna, but I am not really the best swimmer around. I can certainly hold my own but not by much. So just a quick question, do they drown proof the midshipmen at usna? For those who don't know, drown-proofing is a teaching method when they tie your hands together and your feet together, and put you in the pool. then you basically have to bob up and down for a required amount of time in the deep end. A lot tougher than it sounds..
