Speakout!

September 05, 2007

ISSUE:

At Navy away games, with the exception of the Army-Navy and Notre Dame contests, a raucous band of cheering Mids, clad in white, will no longer fill the stands. Naval Academy Superintendent Vice Adm. Jeffrey Fowler has ended the practice of offering midshipmen special incentives, including travel reimbursements in some cases, to attend out-of-town football games.

Capt. Margaret Klein, the commandant, said some activities must be reduced to allow midshipmen to fulfill their military obligations.

YOUR VIEW:

Should the academy make a priority of helping Mids attend out-of-town football games?
