Having taught engineering and coached at the Naval Academy, I was always impressed by the quality of the midshipmen academically, their desire to serve our country and their willingness and committment to be coached. They are in great hands with the AFA’s coaching staff having met them this weekend in Houston and they are joining a great group of young ladies and future officers. As a twenty-two year veteran it is quite warming to see that the duty to serve our nation continues to bring quality folks to the table. Bravo Zulu.
