My son just got his appointment for USMMA today. He's also a USNA candidate and has nominations from our senator and congressman. Waiting on a USNA waiver on cold-induced bronchitis that he already got from USMMA and Navy Nuke delayed entry. Definitely wants active duty in USN when he's done- surface warfare, Seals, aviation etc. are all still interesting to him. We are interested in hearing from former USMMA graduates who went active duty navy. How did that affect your choices in the US Navy, if at all? Any thoughts about training at USMMA compared to what you have learned from friends who went to USNA? or NROTC? Comments much appreciated.
