Naval Academy Alumni, Midshipmen and Parents desire EXCELLENCE. –Do you want the U.S. Naval Academy to look like the Norfolk Naval Station or the U.S. Naval Academy? –Do you want the Ogle Hall (Alumni House) to look like an old historic building falling into disrepair or a Historic Flagship Building for the Alumni Association of USNA symbolic of EXCELLENCE?
