I-DAY

The day began at 6 am for more than 1,200 young men and women of the Class of 2017. Incoming Plebes were processed through various stations including uniform issue, medical examinations, hair-cuts and learning to salute.The day culminated with the Oath of Office ceremony at 6 p.m. in Tecumseh Court. After the ceremony plebes met with their families for the last time until Plebe Parent’s Weekend, Aug. 8-11.  With the March in to Bancroft Hall, Plebe Summer officially began!

CLASS of 2017

Plebes No More

Herndon

On May 20, 2013 the Class of 2016 ran “Full Speed Ahead” towards the end of their Plebe Year.  Each year, the roughly 1,000 members of the academy's plebe (freshman) class form a human pyramid around the 21-foot tall Herndon Monument to remove a plebe hat, or "dixie cup," that upperclassmen have placed on the top of the obelisk. This year MIDN 4/C Patrick Lien of 24th Co placed the Midshipmen hat on top after 1 hour, 32 min & 43 seconds.

Congratulations 2016!

Beat Army!

Go Navy!

Yes, the Big game is still several months away, but people continue to talk about this rivalry.  How appropriate to share this amazing story about two boys who grew up together, following similar dreams. Their chosen paths led to different academies, but they still remain close. That shows the true spirit behind this competition, the battle on the field or court, but overall the dedication these young men have for their academy and their country!

Networking for your Mid

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!

Jeff & Mamie White, current Presidents of the USNA Parents’ Club of the Texas Gulf Coast were thrilled to be able to attend this years’ game.  MIDN 2/C Brian White had liberty the Thursday and Friday before the Army Navy Football game, so Mamie and Jeff arrived in Philly early to spend time with Brian and take in some of the Philly sites.  Jeff spent 1985-1987 in Philly while attending the Wharton Graduate School of Business.


Take a look at these pictures of their visit and a few highlights of the game.

The weather was unbelievable, but our team worked together and beat Army for the 12th straight year!  Great job everyone!


Go Navy!  Beat Army!
