To see Old Glory unfurl in the early morning sunshine against a brilliant blue Texas sky; and MMA’s Corps of Cadets - all at attention dressed in U.S. Marine Corps crisp, clean uniforms; staff and faculty standing erect with right hand over heart or in salute as appropriate…all in unison, in patriotic salute…oh, what a feeling, and what an awesome beginning to each day here at the Academy!
