This is our units Marine Officer Instructor, Capt. Rosenthal and his wife. Capt. Rosenthal is an amazing man and I look up to him a lot. He had been very helpful and encouraging while at the same time pushing me to accomplish all that I possibly can. He also has an amazing sense of humor, which is a must in a marine ;)>

Drinking the grog. I managed to not have to drink any, but it was a close thing. From the reactions of everyone else who had to drink it, it was awful. Some people said it tasted like vomit.

Me and some of my friends being cool. They are my fellow 4/C Midshipmen, but I am a sophomore and they are freshmen. The flags in the back are the flags of the USMC, USA, and USN respectively.
