Herndon Climb A Disappointment

Superintendent Vetoes Grease

What used to be a rite of passage has turned into a laughing stock among alumni of the US Naval Academy.  Two weeks ago, outgoing Superintendent, Vice Adm. Jeffrey L. Fowler said that the climb was too dangerous and likely this would be the final year.

In what can only be interpreted to be his move toward eliminating the climb, Fowler ordered that the monument not be slathered in grease.  What has taken prior classes hours to accomplish was over and done in just over two minutes this afternoon. Last year’s climb was completed in 1:14:38.

    Bogus! Way to go Fowler! You have turned the Class of 2010 into the weakest class since the Class of 1975. And how many were injured doing sea trials? Way to go! You will not be missed when you transfer.

    Congratulations to the Class of 2013. The laughs should not be directed to them, but rather to the Administration who has place political correctness ahead of preparing Midshipman morally mentally and physically to be Officers. Tom Schwab, Class of 1987.

    Next thing you know they are going to put Nerf Bullets in their guns. I guess the NAvy decided that after investing 160K in each one of this boyus and girls, they should not hurt them before they get some payback.
