The sensation will be luxurious. After the day you just went through, it’s hard to avoid the temptation to just fall asleep right there in a gray folding chair, but the sight is impressive: twelve hundred of the nation’s brightest high school graduates from all 50 states and U. S. territories, and several foreign countries, now looking remarkably transformed, like impossibly young officers of the Navy. It becomes evident at once that this is a solemn occasion, one dripping with meaning and consequence.
Now, standing in line with 1200 of your new best friends, you wonder what you’ve gotten yourself into. Walking into Alumni Hall I-Day morning is like walking into the middle of a hurricane. About one minute after sitting in the barber’s chair, you lose all your hair (or if you’re a woman it’s cut very short), you are given a duffle bag and start filling it with various uniforms and essential equipment, you get poked, prodded, and immunized with what seems like dozens of shots, and most importantly, you begin the process of “training” by squared-away upperclass midshipmen.
For many young plebes, this is the first oath ever taken. It is solemn and meaningful. Imbued with a powerful symbolism, the midshipman oath of office casts one’s military obligations into full view. Freely taken, these obligations place the new midshipman in the service of the people of the United States and under the direct command of the president. The oath of office will be affirmed both in writing and in word on several occasions during the journey through USNA and every time you are promoted throughout your subsequent military career.
