    Celebration at the Naval Academy


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     hamcdermott shot these pictures early this morning of Navy midshipmen at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, celebrating the death of Osama bin Laden. 'It was all over different locations at the Naval Academy, the mob moved from place to place,' he said. 'Everyone was chanting and singing, security even allowed them out the gate after they persuaded them with the chant "Free the Mids". It was very inspiring when they sang the national anthem, some people even began to cry. Some of the upper class midshipmen gave speeches and everyone cheered when "Morning Quarters" was canceled for the rest of the year.'
