I come from a Navy family, this learning institution is part of my family-fabric. While there is plenty to see in terms of memorials and honorariums, it's what isn't typically seen unless you are a student. If ever you have a chance to take the guided tour with a docent or a self guided tour, take the time to enjoy the sights and sounds found on the "Yard" and consider what USNA has provided to our country in terms of leaders; military, science and engineering, or private citizens as businessmen after their committment has been served. Regarding Division I athletics, being ranked number one isn't the primary measure of academic success...something the NC2A would do well to consider. Go Navy! Beat Army!
