The Naval Academy's culture is a unique and sometimes baffling
phenomenon to the outside world, but with this newly updated guide
in hand relatives and friends of midshipmen will find answers to
all the questions they might have about Academy life. Since it was
first published more than a decade ago, parents have relied on the
almanac for insights into their sons' and daughters' experiences at
Annapolis. Now the son of the original author has taken on the
responsibility of bringing the popular reference up to date.
An Academy graduate, active duty naval officer, and former
English instructor at the Academy, the younger Mackenzie makes full
use of his intimate knowledge of Annapolis to fill in the gaps.
Along with the latest facts on car ownership, dating policies,
athletic requirements, and disciplinary demands, you'll now find a
useful guide to Internet resources. A midshipman profile and a
dictionary of "Midspeak" completes the picture in a book whose
title recalls the midshipmen's own manual, Reef Points, but extends
its concept for outsiders seeking practical information about the
Academy, the Navy, and Annapolis. Prospective applicants,
graduates, newcomers to the USNA staff, and visitors seeking a
memento will also be attracted to this useful guide.
