From the latest Internet resources to the detailed assistance of current Mids, Ross has compiled THE Definitive Resource for parents. The Glossary of USNA Terms is worth the purchase price alone. It has expanded to over 70 pages of definitions of "Midspeak" translated into easily understood "Mom and Dad" English.
Brief Points is a well written and expansive explanation of all things USNA... the traditions, the customs and the quirks of life as a Midshipman at the United States Naval Academy.
This is a MUST READ for anyone interested in the today's Naval Academy.
I would definetly get this book if you are a fan of "Navy" like I am.
Overall, a good read which puts you in the spirit of USNA life and the military future your child has chosen.
