Hello! I am the proud but worried father of a class of 2015 plebe. So far the limited communications have been less than encouraging. My daughter has always been tops academically but was never an athlete. She left a good university after 2 years to pursue a military career. She worked really hard to gain admission to the USNA but now is doubting her decision and seems miserable. I know that it is a combination of tiredness and all the "yelling" that has shaken her. I am sending near daily brief letters of encouragement. I assume this is normal but I've come to the forums to read other folks commentary. I am sure I am one of hundreds of new USNA parents who feel this way but came to your site for reassurance.
