While on a week-end trip down to see the Town of Annapolis, MD we stopped by the Naval Academy located just outside the Historic City.

The Naval Academy is where all the Officer’s for the US Navy and US Marines are trained.  I had been here before while in the US Navy for a 2 week training period.  I was quite surprised that we could enter the Naval Academy with no problem.  We could walk around most everywhere, with some exceptions to area’s that were off limit’s.

This is the inside of the Naval Chapel.  Everything in here was “spit & polish.”  It was so clean and bright.  Every piece of Brass is shined to a reflection.  Very quiet here.  Enter with respect.  There are Church Services held here every Sunday for the Navy Cadet’s.

Just under this Chapel is where John Paul Jones is buried.  I did have some photo’s of his resting place, but they were lost.  His area is just as beautiful to see with his huge casket in the center of the room.  The body of John Paul Jones is guarded 24 hrs. a day, 7 day’s a week by one lone sailor who stands at attention in full Dress Whites.  He stands a 2 hr. watch.  If you have a chance to see the Naval Academy, take it.  It is well worth it.
