It should come as no surprise to you that the Moretti boys (yes, all three of them!) found their way to and inside Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium today. You can access some of the photos on my Facebook page.
Today is one of the final days of the Moretti family vacation, so of course our visit to the stadium and to other places in and around Annapolis and Chesapeake Bay is for fun. But on the shuttle bus back to our car, I was reminded of the duty so many young men and women assume when they come to this fantastic and historical city.
Sitting on the shuttle across from me was a young woman intently reading the material she had with her. They included a booklet on becoming a Midshipman and what appeared to be a course catalog or similar publication that outlines the academic commitments a Midshipman undertakes.
Certainly for that young woman today in Annapolis was for far more than fun. I glanced over at my boys for a moment and wondered 'what if.'
