The United States Naval Academy is the premier source of officers for the Naval service. A Naval Academy diploma and commission into the Navy or Marine Corps requires a four-year total immersion into military culture, leadership training, and a demanding academic curriculum. The Naval Academy.s unique style of leadership training prepares young men and women for service to their country is an artful combination of mental, physical, and emotional development processes. These processes culminate into a performance measure called the Military Performance grade This research uses detailed literature reviews to support the operationalized model of the Naval Academy.s midshipman development process. The model uses secondary data from the Bowman-Mehay data files for Naval Academy classes 1980 through 1985. Evaluated in this research are the outcomes of the Linear and LOGIT regressions of the fleet success measures of Officer Performance, Promotion, and Retention. This research indicates some surprising results about the role of academics, physical education, athletics, and the Military Performance grade on the development of future Naval officers. The Military Performance grade is consistently the best predictor of fleet success measures.
