It had been an emotional day and Kidd was beginning to wonder if he made the right decision coming to Newport, R.I., to jump start his Navy career. Then the detailer in charge yelled, "Why do you want to be here?"These future Navy/Marine Corps officers broke down during the officer version of "Indoc". To quote...
The question made one of the candidates break down and cry, and soon, the entire platoon was crying.
"I had never seen so many people get so emotional together," said Kidd, 18. "It was at that moment we realized we were there not just for our families at home but there for each other."
It's this type of camaraderie most NAPSters experience when they make the choice to attend the Naval Academy Preparatory School. Halfway through the program and home for the holidays, Kidd knows he made the right decision to persevere his doubts.
...the detailer in charge yelled, "Why do you want to be here?"They make it sound like they had just survived a firefight or made it thru Basic Reconnaissance Course, but no. They're claiming camaraderie after crying during indoc.
The question made one of the candidates break down and cry, and soon, the entire platoon was crying...
This is the real face of your "new" Navy/Marine Corps Team.
