Unfortunately I am visiting CaringBridge to check on two Midshipmen.  As you know we are all pretty sad now.  I am praying hard for Hans.  Way too much sadness lately.  I am so thrilled that you are doing well.  Sorry you had to leave the academy, but it
s all good.  Keep us informed how you are doing and if you are going back to school.  You are our ray of hope and sunshine that the impossible can happen with perseverance and prayer.

Wow, surprised, but glad you are moving forward and working on another dream/goal.  Whatever you decide to do you will succeed.  You were accepted to the USNA and you worked super hard to overcome your injuries.  That's endurance like I've never seen.  Your health and well being is a priority.  What a difficult decision. So smile, be happy and best wishes for your dreams to come true.  God bless you!!!!

Thank you for this wonderful update. I am grateful that you did not go back to football, and understand your decision not to return to the Academy. Your health and well-being are far more important.

I think rowing will be a great low-impact way for you to strive for the athletic excellence you obviously yearn for. i know you will be an excellent football coach as well, so you'll still be in the game!

BTW, I am the mother of an '06 who is back at the Academy teaching now. Life is full of unexpected outcomes, so I'm thrilled for your loved ones that you are back!

Take good care of yourself always! I know you will be a success at everything you put your mind to!

I read with mixed emotions of his decision to leave the academy. I can certainly understand the number of factors in play. I just want to remind him he's always going to be a member of his class and the greater Naval Academy family. I wish him the best of luck in his new school and in his new athletic endeavors. Fair winds and following seas.
