ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - It's Ship Selection Night at the U.S. Naval Academy.
About 250 seniors who will be surface warfare officers in the Navy when they graduate this year will choose their first assignment during a ceremony Thursday night at the academy in Annapolis.
The annual ceremony, which is not open to the public, is a big milestone for midshipmen before they join the fleet.
