The application did not come with Son's permit to report packet. I called their 800 number and they didn't know what I was talking about. I asked to be connected to the USNA branch in Annapolis, MD (yes, I had to tell the operator in what city and state the USNA was located). The woman that I talked to at the branch knew exactly what I was talking about and is sending the Midshipmen Membership Application in the mail today. If you didn't get an application, call the 800 number and ask to be connected to the USNA branch. The service at the branch was excellent. BTW - I was also told that they sent a stack of forms to USNA for inclusion in the permit to report packets and have since found out that "a number" of them were not included in the packets.
