    Parents weekend last week at the academy. It looked great to see all the young men and women in their dress whites.

    We went over to DC and girls kept coming over to him and asking to take their picture with him.

    Tired of ARFCOM? Absolutely not, just thought I'd share a little time over here.:thumb:

    Jamzmom, they ALL look great in their whites, don't they. It was a fantastic weekend.

    I may be up there again in a couple of weeks/months. My son is probably going to be having shoulder surgery, injured last year at NAPS and he will be getting a couple of days away from the yard when that happens. He is disappointed because he will have to sit out a year of football but he can't take a hit on it anyway. Get it fixed now so he can play in the future.:shake:

    Uh... these pics are 12 years old. It would be great to get an update on this young man though. His parents are probably not on the forum anymore. He's probably a Lt. Commander if he stayed in.

    Honest and curious question, half the questions on here are responded to with exasperation that the OP didn't look up old threads or use search functions yet there also seems to be a pile on anytime a poster resurrects a thread. So my question is for regular would you rather a new member ask for updated information on an old thread and resurrect it or would you rather they not use search at all and ask the same question that has likely been raised 5 times. (I think we all agree they can do either as long as they don't chance me ;).

    I wasn't piling on. I was just commenting on the Thread From The Dead.
    Actually, schpenny went and put the paddles to another one right after posting in this one, which I ended up reading.
