"I am writing to let you know that the Great Lakes Maritime Academy is doing a wonderful job of shaping cadets into productive individuals in the workforce. My son recently graduated as a Third Assistant Engineer. He and his friends have all found jobs in their field. As a parent, I appreciate the fact that they are immediately working in their field of study.... Your program allows them to work successfully upon their first placement in the maritime industry."
