A day or so ago, I was taking in the beautiful sights of Rockland Harbor and spotted the Schooner Bowdoin, the century or so old ship that Commander Donald MacMillan steered into the Arctic several times exploring those regions. The old schooner is looking fine and dandy these days thanks to the MMA students who lovingly care for her. At the top of the main mast, port side, was flying the flag of the school showing the seal on a dark blue field.

Maine Maritime Academy (Maine Maritime or MMA) is a public college focused on maritime training and located in Castine, Maine. The academy was established by the 90th Maine Legislature on March 21, 1941. Unlike federal service academies, a congressional recommendation is not required to attend this state school. Students are not obligated to go to sea or into the military after graduation, and a large portion of the graduating class chooses shore-side employment, often in maritime related fields or the power generation industry. Maine Maritime Academy is one of six, non-federal, maritime training colleges in the United States and one of only two that fields a Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC) unit. The college is affiliated under the New England Commission of Higher Education.
