Does this picture remind you of something?

A Naval Academy photo shoot went viral after the academy’s swim and diving team posted a shot of their senior class re-enacting the Marine Corps’ raising of the flag at Iwo Jima.

The Navy men’s swimming and diving team filmed the scene at the bottom of a pool on Sept. 23 with a GoPro video camera. The shot will grace the team poster for the 2013-14 season.

“Every year our team does a team picture for the team poster,” said MIDN 1/C Luke Hoffer, who’s on the left holding the flagpole.

This year, fellow senior MIDN 1/C Conor Campbell, who’s on track to earn his commission as a Marine Corps second lieutenant, suggested the team depict the photo of the flag-raising on Iwo Jima.

Also featured far left is MIDN 1/C Will Mayo, son of members Howard & Nancy Mayo of The Woodlands, Texas and 3rd from left, MIDN 1/C Ben Freedman son of members Michael & Marianne Freedman of Kennewick, Washington.  Both are on the USNA Diving Team.

All I can say is, Amazing!

Why should I join the Parents Club?

For many years, families of midshipmen from our area have been meeting as the USNA Parents’ Club of Texas Gulf Coast.  There are many dozens of such parents’ clubs across the country, and ours is consistently recognized by the USNA administration as among the very best at supporting the mission of the Academy.  Our ties to the local Alumni Association, the Blue & Gold officers and recent graduates keep us connected to affairs on the Yard and in the Fleet.

Being a parent of a midshipman can demand much time, patience and understanding.  And because mids are US Navy personnel, strict military discipline and regulations complicate every detail of their lives.  Providing appropriate encouragement and advice can be pivotal for your mid’s success at the Academy.  The Parents’ Club offers you support, tips, knowledge and friendship to help you provide effective support for your mid - while you enjoy the ride along the way.

Why a parents’ club?

To support our midshipmen.

Come join us at our next meeting and learn about the many ways we can support you and your mid during this new adventure.

Go Navy! Semper Fi!
