The Herndon Monument Climb is the annual ceremony where the plebes (first year academy students) work together to climb the lard-covered monument and replace a “dixie-cup hat” on top with a midshipman hat. This is the official end of the plebe year in which they become “plebes no more!”. I had the opportunity to see this live once in the early 1980’s Here are some pictures for this years climb for the class of 2015. It occurred on May 22, 2012.
