Throughout its long history, the U.S. Naval Academy has produced prominent leaders, like former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and Senator John McCain. The academy prepares young men and women to become officers in the U.S. Navy or Marine Corps. But not all of its undergraduate students - known as midshipmen - are American. Dozens are foreign exchange students who return home to serve their countries after graduating. Ramon Taylor has the story for VOA.
