This iReport is part of an assignment:
Shutdown over: What next?
Please remember to include the United States Merchant Marine Academy ( located on Long Island NY )when reporting about service academies. This academy was the only one completely shut down by this government closure!!! It is pitiful that the concern of missing a football game for navy takes priority to the complete academic standstill if an entire academy! These kids are approaching finals in their semester and this could potentially derail many students. There should be a way to find some emergency funding for such a small school to continue on its path when all the other academies are remaining open! Karen
