The Ultimate Collection Of Hot Shirtless Navy Guys Climbing A Monument Covered In Lard

This is my gift to straight women, gay men, and people who like pretty things. GOD BLESS AMERICA.

In case you didn’t already know, every year the Annapolis Naval Academy freshman class, known as ‘Plebes,’ climb a monument covered in lard to retrieve the Plebian Sailor’s hat and replace it with an officer’s hat. The tradition is one step in marking the end of wearing freshman headgear and moving up to headgear more like a U.S. Naval officer.

It is amazing and beautiful.
