Virginia Military Institute Reviews

Hello Friends, Bubba "Big BM" Mack reporting. I came to Lexington looking for the BM Institute (BMI) but my GPS kept bringing me here. I'm guessing that BMI moved without giving notice, or I typed in VMI, not BMI. I was hoping to pick up some of the newest BM literature to use in my frequent BM presentations around the country. Anyway, I had a chance to walk the grounds and I observed a crowd of honorable youths, all smiling, so I knew they were enjoying good BMs with every trip to the latrine (that's military for bathroom). I wanted to go into the mess hall (military for dining hall), but that is not open to the public. I'm pretty sure they have a wide variety of selections for the cadets (military for students), leading to good, healthy BMs. I was able to visit a spot in the barracks (military for dormitory) and enjoyed a nice submarine (military for a submersible vessel) sandwich. If you find yourself in Lexington make time for a stop at Natural Bridge and VMI - both are worth a visit from every tourist. This is Bubba "Big BM" Mack wishing you good travels and good BMs!!
