The tour of the Academy was by Elder and Sister Okeson, military relations missionaries. He is retired Navy, graduate of University of Idaho and had a stellar career in commanding nuclear submarines and other navy nuclear work. He was a walking encyclopedia about the Navy and the Academy, so it was a great tour.

View from the Academy, of the state capital building. The lightening rod on top is a
"Ben Franklin", constructed and grounded to his specifications. It has been up there
for more than 225 years.

These eight pictures are of the Naval Academy Chapel, seats
2500, and used by Catholic and Protestant congregations.
There is many stained glass windows each depicting a
biblical scene. Very beautiful.
The last picture is a row that is closed off and lighted every Sunday
for the midshipmen who never returned from battle.
