An evening pause: It ain’t Anchors Aweigh, but the passion is the same. Wholly produced and performed by Navy midshipmen on the streets of Annapolis, with a zero budget.

Hat tip Tom Biggar.

    I was in Annapolis for my son’s football game last year. The town is a great place to visit. My father wore his American Legion hat, and I lost count of the number of midshipmen and others that shook his hand or saluted while thanking him for his service. Well worth a visit if you’re in the area.

    Bob –
    Love the choices of all your musical pieces – great change of pace.
    Possible to add function to allow others here to upload same?
    have a great version of “Sweet Home Alabama” by the Leningrad Cowboys and the Russian Red Army Choir. Incredible (and strange).
