    USNA OpInfo: is there a standard amount of time added on the front end of Thanksgiving break?

    If so, how much? (west coast BTW)

    Thanks

    While awaiting a more accurate input - and I couldn’t find a reference that had the schedule - the last few sponsor members mids we had do it in the last few years were excused from class M-T-W, which, if still the case, MIGHT mean travel after LMO on the Friday before. But - there is a home football game in the 17th. If your mid is doing this, they are best placed to find out what is allowed. It’s an Admissions program, but the Commandant always has the last word on midshipman movement policies.

    My understanding for this year is that mids who must travel long distances (i.e., west coast and beyond) can leave after LMO on Friday and have to be back when everyone else does the Sunday after T-giving. Don't know if the same is true for mids who live closer, given the football game.
