Tom Vincent of Massachusetts has his height measured by Jameson Croall during the first day of indoctrination at the United States Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point. Two hundred and thirty eight plebes from across the country received their first military haircut and uniforms, learned to salute in their first official formation, and got first assignments.
