Somebody's Son...



ANNAPOLIS, MD - A member of the United States Naval Academy freshman class wears body armor, helmet and carries a rifle through a mud-filled ditch as part of the 'Wet and Sandy' challenge during the rigorous Sea Trials May 17, 2011 in Annapolis, MD. Under strict safety supervision, about 900 freshmen, or 'Plebes,' faced 14 hours of 32 rigorous physical and mental challenges during the trials, a daylong, action-oriented event modeled after the Marine Corps 54-hour Crucible and the Navy's Battle Stations.

I crawled under wire with machine gun fire during Basic, I cannot imagine how bad it would be if you did it in a muddy ditch.
