SKU: The Naval Academy : A Parent's Ponderings from Home Port


This journal catalogs my seven years along the Severn River watching our USNA daughters, ('19) and ('22), become imbued "with the highest ideals of duty, honor, and loyalty."

Midshipmen accept their Naval Academy appointments, not with hesitation or coercion, but with purpose, to be better leaders and ready to fight when ill winds wish them harm. This book celebrates not only their achievements, but also highlights their resilience to overcome challenges inherent to life on the Yard.

Doing hard things well is the unfettered fabric that weaves these kids together. The Brigade of Midshipmen said, "I DO!" on I-Day, knowing the risk and sacrifice required to become Navy and Marine Corps officers.

Although the port from which midshipmen sail will forever welcome them home, they make a personal choice to moor their lives in Annapolis. They are our heroes and ones we will forever cherish.
