Partially Reviewed: Rough draft. I've gone through these pictures once, removing the worst ones, some duplication, etc. I usually take sequences of 4 or 5 pictures at a time and there are lots of near duplicates. I'll be doing a final review later which will cull the pictures down some. To be honest though, I'm way behind on doing final reviews.

Wikipedia Description: United States Naval Academy
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The United States Naval Academy (also known as USNA, Annapolis or, for athletic events, "Navy") is an undergraduate college in Annapolis, Maryland for the education of officers of the United States Navy and Marine Corps. The Academy often is referred to simply as "Annapolis" although naval officers normally refer to it in conversation as "The Academy," "The Boat School," or "Canoe U." Sports media refer to the Academy as Navy; this usage is officially endorsed. ROTC graduates, Officer Candidate School graduates as well as cadets from the Air Force Academy, Coast Guard Academy, and the United States Military Academy (West Point), USNA's traditional rivals, often refer to the Naval Academy as "Canoe U or "Shipwreck Tech"." The U.S. Naval Academy was established October 10, 1845.
The Academy's motto is ex scientia tridens, which is Latin for "from knowledge, seapower" (the trident, emblem of the god Neptune, representing seapower)". The Academy also supports the Navy and Marine Corps core values of Honor, Courage, and Commitment.
The USNA's campus is in Annapolis, Maryland, on the banks of the Severn River and Chesapeake Bay.
Students at the Naval Academy are referred to by their military rank (Midshipman). Upon graduation, most Naval Academy Midshipmen are commissioned as Ensigns in the U.S. Navy or Second Lieutenants in the Marine Corps and must serve a minimum of five years after their commissioning. Foreign midshipmen are commissioned into the armed forces of their native countries. Since 1959, midshipmen have been able to "cross-commission," or request a commission in the Air Force, Army, or Coast Guard, provided they meet that service's eligibility standards. Every year, a small number of graduates do this, usually in a one-for-one "trade" with a similarly inclined cadet at one of the other service academies.
