Brendan got the good news last week: He has received an official appointment to become a midshipman at the United States Naval Academy. This was the culmination of a great and very intense process. While many apply for the honor, very few are accepted. Although I felt all along that he would probably receive an appointment, news of the actual appointment was a moment of great joy and relief. I am so proud and happy for him! (Just to make sure, I asked him, and he does plan to accept.)

By the way, the monetary value of an education at the U.S. Naval Academy is currently estimated to be $300,000.00. To celebrate, we went to Wick's Pizza after we got the news. Although Wick's is Brendan's favorite local establishment, my friend Rags suggested that Ruth's Chris would have been more commensurate with the occasion.

Special thanks are due to Tim Naville. Tim, an outstanding attorney in New Albany, is an alumnus of the Naval Academy. He also serves as the Academy's representative in this area. He befriended Brendan and helped him through the application process. He has remained in close touch with us over the past year, and has been available to answer any and all questions that we've had. Fittingly, Tim will come to the Senior Awards Day at Providence High School in may, decked out in full naval dress uniform, to present Brendan with his Certificate of Appointment. I cannot wait to witness that.

And now a new mantra that I am learning: Go Navy! Beat Army!

There's a former operative from the CIA that would have something to say about either of you being smarter than he is.
