Back in July of 2010 I headed out the the U.S. Naval Academy to cover Induction Day. Approximately 1,230 young men and women arrived that day to begin their new lives as “plebes” or midshipmen fourth class (freshmen). “I-Day” culminates when the members of the Class of 2014 take the oath of office at a ceremony in Tecumseh Court, the historic courtyard of the Bancroft Hall dormitory. Over 17,400 young men and women applied to be members of the Naval Academy Class of 2014 – a record for USNA.
