Please do not bring any firearms to the event. The firearms will be provided.

We also will be providing you with information on what to expect during your upcoming Plebe Summer. Parents will receive a copy of Western Pennsylvania Naval Academy Parents’ Association’s 2023 Plebe Parent Survival Guide.
