article by the MOAA CFO: One of the major expenses listed in the article for MOAA is this magazine. I consider it a luxury to receive

my copy of the magazine in print. Most publications I receive are now in electronic format. For some mem- bers electronic distribution would be inadequate, but in my opinion the most important work of the associa- tion is not the magazine. I would volunteer to receive

Military Officer in electronic format in lieu of the expensive hard-copy version to assist in maintaining a healthy MOAA bottom line. — Maj. John S. Laws, USA (Ret) Vancouver, Wash.

Editor’s note: An electronic version of the magazine is available at www To cancel delivery of a mailed subscription, call MOAA’s Member Service Center, (800) 234-MOAA (6622).

Midshipmen Aren’t Cadets I enjoy Military Officer every month. But on page 60 of the June 2016 issue [in “Military Athletes Aim for Gold”], there appears “U.S. Naval Academy Cadet Lauren Barber.” I do not know the young lady, but I

am sure of one thing: As she is of the U.S. Naval Academy, Annapolis, Md., she is a midshipman, and not a cadet. One could be a cadet at Annapolis only if one were visiting from [the U.S. Military Academy at] West Point, N.Y., or the Air Force Academy [in Colorado Springs, Colo.]. Those en- rolled at Annapolis are midshipmen. —Col. Rufus Calhoun Young Jr., USMC (Ret) Life Member via email
