One Night of Freedom

It's been almost a month since I arrived and set foot on the United States Merchant Marine Academy and since then I have not set foot outside of the gates until Thursay, August 9, 2008. Dressed in the dress whites, the regimental officers to us to the Mets game, to keep the plebe tradition. We each received $25 spending money, a ticket to the game, and an awesome experience.

Wearing the white in public was the coolest experience, people are so appreciative of the military. Fans cheered us on as we walked into the stadium and also when we left, they wanted to take pictures of us, overall it was so cool.
Although the Mets lost the game to the San Diego Padres, it was still one of the best nights I've had in a while. I got to hang out with my friends all night, which there are some really good ones up here. I hope you like the pictures!!
