Featured Firstie

  POSTED ON: Friday, October 25, 2019 2:20 PM by

This week's Featured Firstie is MIDN 1/C class Anthony Polo of Long Island, New York.

Polo loves all things space and flight. This drove his decision to pick aerospace engineering as his major as well as participate in VT-NA, the Naval Academy’s Flight and training squadron. It comes as no surprise that he wants to commission as a Navy Pilot.


As an Eagle Scout, Polo is also active in the National Eagle Scout Association. Anthony doesn’t just do heavy lifting when it comes to all of his extracurricular activities; he is also on the powerlifting team!

Polo helps out his shipmates as a Brigade Investigating Officer in support of the midshipman honor system as well as his battalion’s peer adviser, always putting others before himself.
