From MUG to Midshipman [VIDEO]
I was at Maine Maritime Academy on Saturday, October 10th for the MMA-Husson Soccer Games. Prior to the game there was a March On by the Regiment Class of 2019. I have never seen this, and it was very impressive.
The Class of 2019 Regiment, up to this point was referred to as MUGs. MUG stands for Midshipment Under Guidance. As they stood at attention, they took an oath, and transformed from a MUG to a Midshipman 4th Class.
Before the Regiment Class of 2019 was dismissed at the end of the Women's Soccer game, they all lined up on the near sideline to do 19 pushups. Given the fact that I was the Public Address Announcer, I thought it was only fitting that I called out the pushups! Up 1, Up 2, Up 3! I only wished I had filmed that part!
