Throughout the Mitroka house, family photographs tell a story. Here's one of the whole clan: Mom's next to Dad in his Army uniform. Brother G. A. is in his. Twin sisters Kristy and Kathy are in dress whites and caps. There's Tim, the baby, in a plain blue suit and a tie. Here's one of the four Mitroka children: G. A.'s in his West Point graduation uniform. Kristy and Kathy grin beside him in matching West Point uniforms. And Tim's on the end in shorts and a T-shirt. No more. At the end of the month, 17-year-old Tim will be the last member of his family to attend the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.

The Naval Academy will host its first-ever bowl game this year, as organizers announced Monday the move of the 2013 Military Bowl from RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C. to Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis in December. “This move puts our game into a facility that honors the men and women who have served in our Armed Forces,” said Steve Beck, DC Bowl Committee president and executive director. “The big benefit for other schools coming in, if you talk to college players, playing at a military academy is unique and special.

WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Air Force Academy has lost 25 percent of the freshman women in two of its last three classes, an attrition rate at least double that of Annapolis and West Point.Academy officials are uncertain whether there is any link between the high dropout rate and the widespread complaints of sexual harassment that have recently swirled around the school in Colorado Springs, Colo.However, Gen. Bradley C. Hosmer, the academy's superintendent, told the school's Board of Visitors at the group's annual meeting in Washington last week that female cadets may be leaving the school at higher rates because of the "pressures ** and tensions" of integrating women into a traditionally male environment.

In the early morning hours on Nov. 17, a band of cadets from the U.S. Military Academy sneaked onto an 875-acre organic dairy farm, located about 15 miles outside Annapolis, and stole three goats. They raced back to West Point, N.Y., slapped together some photos and created a YouTube video that detailed "Operation Good Shepherd" -- the theft of the Naval Academy's unguarded and defenseless mascots. Yawn. This still passes as a legitimate prank in this rivalry? C'mon, cadets. Log off the computers and crack open a dusty copy of the Army-Navy Prankster History Book.

When Lt. Cmdr. Wesley A. Brown was a midshipman at the U.S. Naval Academy, he was ostracized, his classmates once trashing his room ahead of an inspection. But the Navy embraced him as a trailblazer in Wednesday funeral services, part of which were held in a field house that bears his name. More than 250 gathered in Annapolis to remember Brown, the sixth black midshipman and the first to graduate. Mourners included top Navy and military officials, the first black female graduate of the academy and the oldest living black graduate of any U.S. military service academy.

If there is a place in this country where honor is still taken seriously, it is at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis. The importance of the Honor Concept is drilled into incoming plebes from day one. Behavior that may be merely disapproved on other campuses is grounds for expulsion. Given that standard, the recently disclosed Office of the Naval Inspector General's report issued last fall that uncovered a hidden "contingency" fund involving millions of dollars fueled by various private sources, including the Naval Academy Foundation, and used for such indulgencies as tailgate parties for senior staff, entertainment and gifts for coaches is downright shocking.

You've got your U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis, U.S. Military Academy at West Point, U.S. Air Force Academy at Colorado Springs, U.S. Coast Guard Academy in New London, and your U.S. Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point. Those, my fellow Americans, are our national service academies. Now consider one more: the U.S. Public Service Academy - same model, except no weapons, no boats and, as far as I know, no buzz cuts on the first day of school. The USPSA. This is not a reality, of course.

Federal lawmakers in Maryland are pushing for a national database to catalog sexual assaults at the U.S. Naval Academy and other military colleges, months after a government agency found that incidents were inconsistently reported. The effort comes after years of reports finding a hostile climate for women at the Naval Academy in Annapolis and other attempts, which have met mixed success, at combating sexual assaults there. Legislation recently introduced by Rep. Elijah E. Cummings would require the Defense Department to create the database along with standards for reporting sexual assaults.

PHILADELPHIA - When he discovered his son, David, had crudely altered his report card to turn D's into B's, Jeffrey M. Gloss had a thought that occurs to a lot of parents: military school. In Gloss' case, he followed through. "Our son was in a situation where he was about to travel down the slippery slope," said Gloss, explaining why he took David out of Philadelphia's Lower Merion High School and enrolled him at Valley Forge Military Academy four years ago. David Gloss' application to Valley Forge turns out to have corresponded with a surge of interest in military prep schools.

Please forgive the irrepressible grins, the sunny outlook and the other outward signs of deep satisfaction displayed this week by fans of U.S. Naval Academy football. Navy's 46-44 triple-overtime victory over the Fighting Irish on Saturday in South Bend, Ind., was bound to have a lasting effect. Beating a rival once every 43 years will do that. The Notre Dame-Navy match-up is one of the more lopsided annual events in college football. One fields a team of high school all-Americans, the other with future Navy and Marine Corps officers.
