Here’s mud in your eye.
A first-year midshipman, or plebe, is splashed with mud while participating in the annual sea trials at the U.S. Naval Academy. 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 and serves as a leadership challenge for the upper class midshipmen who lead each event during the exercise.
