Period Piece

Even when they spelled out '92 with their hats, they had to put a period at the end.

Dear Two Gorgeous Grads in the front row..yes, you 3 fellas in from the left and you, 3 fellas in from the right. I just want to fix your hair (and those shoes have to go too) and then gaze into your handsome mugs...I just hate when I get crushes on 135 year old men..

What they would see

In a few years, as junior officers, they would experience the Spanish-American War. Then they would see the rise of the Dreadnaught class of warships, followed by the rise of submarines and aviation. As senior officers they would fight in World War I. They would have very busy careers.


I don't see Lenny, maybe he flunked out.

What gives?

As the uncle of a 2013 graduate of the Naval Academy, I take exception to your Gilbert & Sullivan and Lord of the Flies references. You can do better.
