Sea Stories and Class Histories

Read the personal accounts of individuals who write about their own experiences in the Navy and Marine Corps. Some are entertaining; some are inspiring, but all are educational as they seek to inform about events–large and small–of the past that have shaped our nation today. In addition, these stories help to recognize the many Naval Academy Alumni who are and have been, leaders serving our nation.

Through Shipmate and digital channels, the USNA AA&F celebrates the legacy of these veterans, imparts leadership lessons drawn from their bravery, and solemnly honors those who made the ultimate sacrifice. View the Legacy of Valor: From Annapolis to Victory post here.
