This is an opportunity not to be missed whether you are Naval Academy bound or not. Get all the information that you can while you can. Chart Your Course. 

Sunday 23 NOV 14 at 1000 on the USS Hornet, the Grey Ghost Division will be hosting MIDN 1/C John Ruck who will sharing valuable information on life as a cadet at the United States Naval Academy.  After the presentation there will be a Q & A session. John will be accompanied by a Blue Gold Officer that coaches prospective USNA candidates on the procedure.

John Ruck is a senior ("first class") Midshipman who will graduate from Annapolis in May of this coming year.  He is majoring in aeronautical engineering and plays on Navy's rugby team.  He is an Alameda High School graduate.

Basically MIDN Ruck will provide a quick powerpoint presentation to provide a broad overview of academics, athletics, and leadership opportunities within the Brigade of Midshipmen, including summer training.  He will then walk through a day in the life of a Midshipman starting with Plebe Year up until senior year.  John has many anecdotes that illustrate what it's like at Annapolis which will help his audience fully understand the opportunities and challenges associated with attendance at the Academy.  He will, of course, be available for questions as long as needed.

Jon Stanley will plan to also attend and can provide a brief outline of the admissions process.  He is a graduate of Annapolis and served in the nuclear submarine service during his active duty.  His civilian career was as a nuclear engineer, and is now retired.  He has also  been associated with the USS Hornet for several years, both as CEO and now as Chairman of the Board of Trustees.  Jon is also a "Blue and Gold Officer" for the Naval Academy, which is a volunteer position tasked with mentoring, assisting and interviewing prospective East Bay candidates for an appointment to attend the school. 

The session will be held in the Ward Room on the USS Hornet. Check in at the Security Afterbrow (middle gangway) 0930 to 0950

Please send your name, rank, and unit to Paul Norton if you plan to attend. You must reserve a spot before Friday 21 NOV.

Need the units to log into Magellan and update the cadets and adults records to include correspondence courses, training etc. The records are not updated and it is causing problems along the COC to make promotions. Some are taking weeks and should only take a couple days but because Magellan is not current with training and  Courses the promotions keep getting kicked back.
