    Even though my son was not in the Waterfront photos, I have enjoyed seeing what else they do besides drills on the square. Thank you Waterfront crew for taking and posting your photos. Hmmmm . . . just wondering when Company 1 will be at the waterfront - either on boats, sailing or in the pool.:thumb:

    Despite what the hoorah types would have you believe, the waterfront activities prepare the plebes for the eventual goal of the school. The yelling and marching and drilling is just a tool for them to gain discipline to survive plebe year and learn time management. The WF was the best place to be during indoc and still is!
