    USNA has its own Uniform Regulation Instruction, but Navy Uniform Regulations (http://buperscd.technology.navy.mil/bup_updt/508/unireg/chapter2/CHAPTER_2.htm) require that you cannot wear them in formation. If you are talking about plebe summer, you are almost always in some type of formation, so you can forget about it. The only time you might be able to wear sunglasses is during sailing lessons on the colgate.
