Overview

Based on real events and personal experiences - yet presented as comical military fiction - Dink-Gadink depicts a week in the life of seven Plebes at the U.S. Naval Academy. Struggling to survive in an institution that overwhelms them on a daily basis, these seven Plebes are unique in their personalities and goals. Told from a humorous perspective in vivid detail, Dink-Gadink boldly takes the reader inside the hallowed walls of the U.S. Naval Academy. It depicts the hilarious and mischievous escapades of Homecoming week, leading up to a climactic football game against Air Force on Saturday. Finally, on a lazy Sunday morning, it reveals a priceless lesson about the true meaning of real world friendships that are formed in a crucible like the U.S. Naval Academy. Dink-Gadink is as close as a reader will ever become to actually being a Midshipman at the U.S. Naval Academy.

    Fun read for parent of a Youngster

    USNA parents try this book after plebe year. It is fun to read after the entire family has survived the ups and downs of the first year at USNA, When I read the book I found myself remembering and laughing out loud!
