Hat’s off

This tradition began at the Naval Academy graduation ceremony in 1912. When the Navy Midshipmen are commissioned they receive their Officer hats and the old ones are no longer needed.

This long-established act has been passed along to all graduates and expresses a symbol of “it’s time to move on”.
