Concur. He is not entirely on board with his description of the nomination process but, other than that, great article.

Nice, I suppose, but his description of Plebe life doesn't do any justice. I don't know anyone who wakes up a 6 around here, except maybe Sunday. I wake up at 4:30 every morning, and thats the nights I go to sleep... Last week I missed two night of sleep due to homework, etc. Makes greeting upperclassmen seem easy, try a 4 to 1 ratio, with team motto, squad motto, platoon motto, company motto, battalion motto (I don't think anyone actually knows/uses this one), regimental motto, brigade motto, and whatever random mottos people give you. I still don't know everyone in my platoon's section! Well I guess, no one's description could do the life of a Plebe justice:)
