1/C Ehrhart, the midshipman assigned to your region, is a senior quantitative economics major and he is also the 5th Company Commander. OPINFO is an excellent time to ask any questions students might have about the academy ranging from admission tips to what life is like at the academy and what it means to be a midshipman.  1/C Ehrhart is qualified and happy to answer any and all questions pertaining to life at the academy and what it means to be a member of the United States Navy.
