Today is the last day for the induction of the class of 2024. Incoming midshipmen were inducted over four days. Fortunately, Timothy had a short drive from our home in Virginia to Annapolis, Maryland as there was no traffic. We visited our good friends, the Kwons, before delivering Timothy to USNA.
We were allowed to drive him to the start of Induction Day at Alumni Hall, but were not allowed to exit the vehicle. The process from our end was smooth. We managed to find a photo of Timothy checking in. We are very proud of this young man, his purpose it to serve, and he is doing it in the middle of a pandemic.
Go Navy! Beat Army!
Arriving at USNA for Induction Day
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (July 2, 2020) The United States Naval Academy welcomes the incoming 4th class midshipmen, or plebes, of the Class of 2024 during a four-day induction process due to restrictions set forth by the COVID-19 pandemic for this 2020 year. I-Day marks the beginning of a demanding six-week indoctrination period called Plebe Summer, intended to transition the candidates from civilian to military life. As the undergraduate college of our country's naval service, the Naval Academy prepares young men and women to become professional officers of competence, character, and compassion in the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps.
