Paraplegic Student Graduates USNA

USNA Silent DrillThe story behind Ensign Kevin Hillery is quite compelling. He isĀ the first paraplegicĀ student from the United States Naval Academy to graduate. Kevin was injured in a cycling accident that paralyzed him from the waist down. And the Academy let him finish out his studies even though that he cannot follow through on becoming a SEAL officer. I am not sure the designation of Ensign reflects reality, but I’ll gladly give it to him. The article states he is considering law school. Hey big Navy, why not get Kevin on the JAG track?
