On June 27, 2019, we welcomed 1,181 young men and women to the U.S. Naval Academy as the incoming Class of 2023. This Induction Day (I-Day) marked the beginning of Plebe Summer, the military indoctrination and training period that helps new Midshipman Candidates develop morally, mentally, and physically, which serves as the foundation to military life. I-Day 2019 was a momentous occasion that honored the tradition of the Academy, in addition to the young men, women, and their families, as they committed to beginning the journey of navigating their future as our next generation of leaders.
