Hat’s off

Graduation day and traditions

33924057_2278792335472166_7573010336308002816_o-2Graduation time is upon us and tradition has it that the graduates toss their caps into the air.
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”.
