The class of 2018 was inducted into the US Naval Academy on Tuesday, July 1 and have begun the grueling six weeks of plebe summer. Shaved heads for the men and short haircuts for the women begin the day and it ends with raising of the right hand and taking the oath of induction into the US Navy. So many parents, siblings, other relatives and friends we there to offer moral support to the young women and men taking on the challenge of “four years by the bay.” It is a daunting task but one to be proud of when four years later they raise their hands, once again, to be commissioned into the Navy, Marine Corps or other branch of the armed services that might be chosen.
We here at Flag House Inn send our best wishes to all now in the Navy family for “fair winds and following seas” ahead.
Go Navy and USNA Class of 2018!!
