Plebe Parent Weekend is Past; Reform is Coming

usna The physicality of plebe summer is over. Now that exercise moves to the brain. Reform is August 17th and classes will begin August 19th. You probably saw lots of videos of USNA’s weekend, but did you see West Point’s? Zoe wouldn’t consider any Academy other than USNA, but watch this. I’m sure you’ll agree it’s inspirational:

During Cadet Basic Training (CBT) also known as “Beast,” plebes have to memorize lots of different bits of information and military phrases, mottos, and quotes. One of them is the Soldier’s Creed. With no disrespect to the Soldier’s Creed, I thought that Plebes needed something of their own, so I changed up the words, and this is what turned out.
Hope you enjoy it.
