    My brother is a 2023 Plebe and we are having a send-off party for him, and inviting our family, friends, his teachers, etc.

    My mom wants to have a video to play at the party at some point of USNA - think an admissions video but not as much on the "how many get in" part. Would like to show all the military things, sea trials, Herndon, etc.

    Any recommendations?

    Two very cool videos to consider, though they may not fully cover what you want.

    One, the plebe summer video for Class of 2022. Good intro for people unfamiliar with USNA. Though I must say, it puts a rather benign filter on plebe summer. Don’t want to upset the parents too much.

    Two, the CBS intro to the 2017 Army-Navy game. Will send chills down your spine.

    Both easily found on YouTube.

    Search "Cam Zamot A Day At Navy" on YouTube. This is a montage of life at USNA, and they show it at USNA admissions forums across the country.

    Tons of stuff available on YouTube - you could set up a playlist and never run out of material. Search for (add USNA to all):
    I Day
    Induction
    Herndon
    Plebe Summer
    Blue Angels
    Top Gun
    Army-Navy Football Hype Videos
    ...and so on.

    Have fun!

    Surely you must include “Naptown Funk?” Have that playing in a loop as guests arrive. Will set a festive tone.

    Any of the spirit videos made by Rylan Tuohy USNA ‘16 are classics, for a little fun.

    Add to the search list, for background play:
    USNA Sea Trials
    USNA Ship Selection Night
    USNA Commissioning oath
    USNA Plebe Oath of Office
    USNA Induction Day Closing of the Doors
    USNA Herndon Monument Climb
    USNA Color Parade
    USNA Morning Colors

    @MidCakePa Excellent all-purpose selections above.
