    **REMOVED**

    If the call isn't great, don't panic. Your call could be amazing, depressing, scary or anything in between. But most Plebes have a roller coaster of emotions and there are a lot of variables. Bottom line is, 99% or more of the Plebes will make it through this summer. Hang in there!

    Academy Insider is great. Not having any military experience, we are grateful for this forum. The support and answers to questions helps a lot. Got the first letter from DS tonight.

    He is in good spirits. He says he feels like he has been in the Navy for years. He also apologized that his parent goodbye was not of high quality. Love our DS!
