The United States Naval Academy at Annapolis, Maryland, is a service academy established by Congress for the purpose of training and educating midshipmen (a training rank only) to become Ensigns in the navy or Second Lieutenants in the Marine Corps. Some few educated there alternatively choose the Army or Air Force. Some citizens of foreign nations also attend, to become members of their own armed forces. Midshipmen who become unqualified for service may graduate but are discharged without a commission. Resignation or discharge for academic reasons does not relieve the individual of military obligation. In contrast to the Military Academy at West Point, midshipmen are also inducted into the Navy, if they are not already serving.
