ANNAPOLIS MD: MAY 14 As a team these midshipmen perform abdominal crunches during sea trials at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland on May 14, 2013. Sea Trials is modeled after the Marine Corps’ Crucible and the Navy’s Battle Stations recruit programs. It is a “capstone” event for the fourth class midshipmen (freshmen or “plebes”) and serves as a leadership challenge for the upper class. Sea Trials is led by academy upper class and provides a final physical and mental challenge to the plebes, designed to test their teamwork and to reinforce their bonds as a company and class. Plebes are physically and mentally tested through a variety of challenges in different stations located across the Academy and Naval Support Activity Annapolis. At the end of Sea Trials, the company of plebes who demonstrated the top unit performance through endurance and spirit during the entire course will be recognized with the “Iron Company” award during a brief presentation.
