USNA Graduation Week: Sending off these young men in style

Eric's crew

This summer, I watched my nephew, Eric, graduate from the US Naval Academy.   Graduation from USNA can't be covered in a day.  It takes a week.   When Eric's mother asked if I could help throw a get together to kick off the festivities, I jumped at the chance.  I'm a proud Aunt and was also lucky enough to have a close connection to these fine young men.   We kept it simple:  a comfortable location dressed up with linens, their favorite drinks (Dark n' Stormies among other things), good food (do they ever fill?), and superb weather (I credit Eric.  It seems the sun always shines on that boy!)  There is still plenty of time to have the sun shine.  Do you have someone you want to send off in style?
