How Many Admirals Graduate From USNA?
Many years ago, I was with a small group of visitors, being driven by bus, who stopped at the United States Naval Academy for a brief tour of this national treasure. As we made our way through the main gate on foot, one member of our group asked the Marine corporal guarding the gate if he knew how many Admirals graduated from the Academy. The Marine thought for a few seconds and replied,
"None, Sir. I think they only graduate Ensigns and 2nd Lieutenants."
