' ill l ' % ... the cornerstone of the Naval Academy and the Naval Service. Tradi- tions provide for a heritage that we can be proud of during our years at the Naval Academy, and in the years to come. All traditions have their origins at some specific point in time, and usually these times of change are con- troversial, providing a " vivid " topic of conversation among the old salts of the Navy. " Zhe want of a J aval School . . . Correspond iiuj with the Military Aeadeniy at West Point, for the formation of scientific and accomplished Officers. " ohn i2. Adams. JS26 p-?:;, -: Take for example the establishment of a school for the training of Naval Officers. As of 1813, midshipmen served as a regular member of a ships crew, and after a period of apprenticeship, were promoted to become officers of the line. Each ships ' Captain was responsible for the education of these young men, which left a great deal to be de- sired for standardization of training. This system worked well it seemed for those of- ficers who had risen thereby, and they were disgruntled by the very thought of a Naval School. In the words of Naval Academy historian Thomas G. Ford, on the task as- signed to the first Superintendent, " Com- mander (Franklin) Buchanan well under- stood that the experiment entrusted to his hands was opposed to the traditions and practices of his own day, and that it was looked upon with mistrust by almost all old officers. " Thus the first period of change in the Naval Academy ' s history occured prior to its official establishment on October 10, 1845. In itself, the Naval Academy has acquired many traditions and customs in its 134 years, which pro- vide the color and enthusiasm we have come to know. Who knows why, when the Brigade used to ride the trains to the Army-Navy game, they pulled the window shades down each time they passed through Baltimore? Or how and when did it become a midshipman ' s duty to collect a kiss from the person who would don their cap? Mysteries such as these might just remain as such forever. Though it did not mean the loss a traditional event, changing the title of June Week to Commis- sioning Week was indeed necessary, due to the shifted academic year which now ends in May. And on the subject of Commissioning Week, what about the traditional Color Parade and Color Girl? Both the Color Parade and Girl were established in 1871 to increase the midshipmen competency in drill, by Captain Samuel P. Carter, then the Commandant of Midshipmen. On the day of the parade, the midshipmen would drill before a group of judges who selected the best comp any, and then the Color Girl would present the award. The first such winner was " C " company and the first Color Girl was Grace Worden, daughter of RADM John L. Worden, who was then the Superintendent. unc Week ' Falls y The Wayside NAPOLIS, Md.

But few. if any. men in service, have had the advantage that you are about to receive. Commander Buchanan. Oct 10. IS45 ■0glf The heritage of the Naval Academy rests not so much on the traditions which abide within its walls, but in those men who have gone forth to become leaders in all aspects of our country ' s endeavors. These persons, by their dedication and perseverence, bring a great credit to this institution. For of what use is this Academy if the graduates it produces do not rise to the top of the ladder, or strive to obtain such a goal. " To prepare midshipmen morally, mentally and physically to be professional officers in the Naval Ser- vice, " such is the mission of the Naval Academy. A corollary to this mission has proven to be that Naval Academy graduates will assume a leadership role in the civilian world when they retire from active duty. Neither statement mentions that they must be male or female, black or white, but that they will assume a leadership role, and be professional in every aspect. The issue is not that the Class of 1979 is all male, or that the Class of 1980 is the first to graduate women, but that as the Navy and the Nation change, the Naval Academy too must alter itself to meet the needs of both. True, the traditional all male class will be no more, but traditional Naval Academy graduates will still be heading to the fleet. h pi ifip ; " J thousand ijoutlts. of as many minds, have been brought together to be molded into one professional east and one professional prineiple of dutij.

McGIFFEN ' 82 Born in 1860. Philo McGiffen came to ihe Naval Academy as as Naval Cadet in 1878. A rugged in- dividualist, his actions soon established him as such. It could be said that he typified the mischevious young- ster that is in us all. For example, he used to roll cannon balls down the barracks steps at inappropriate limes, and once wrote a report on " imaginary " weapons under the Navy ' s control. He did not do well in aca- demics in general, although he did well in his profes- sional courses and really enjoyed them. Upon graduation in 1882. he was not offered a com- mission due to a lack of billets for passed midshipmen, and later obtained one in the Chinese Navy. He then went on to establish the Chinese Naval War College and also introduced the Chinese Navy to the holiday obser- vance of Thanksgiving. Although unable to serve in the U.S. Navy. McGif- fen ' s dedication to service is representative of the highest professional standards of the United States Naval Academy. McGiffen died in 1897 from wounds he received while commanding the CHEN YUEN in the battle of the Yalu. T 1 • It iii uffi ' ir.rtia ssmdaKtL.ij. 5 " 3» ..

I am O.M. Nesviri, the Spirit of ' 79, and this is my story about the Class of 1979. You might say I am a part of every young man that graduated, and a little bit of all those who didn ' t make it to May 30th, 1979. I came to be July 7, 1975 as the class reported for induction. I came from just about every place you could imagine in the United States and around the world. It was a lonely feeling, walking through that gate for the first time. They knew their life was about to change, but had no idea how drastic it would be. Many men came together to become one, and im- mediately there was a feeling of unity, even with those who had not yet reported. They were all in for the same excitement, the same discipline. As they started on their first day as a class, we soon became well acquainted with each other. - -y ; ' €: ' f jSr§Z M.

It seemed those barbers butchered their hair all their four years as midshipmen, forcing some to the midnight barbers of Bancroft. That first meal, a cold sub and some brownies, with some firstie telling them that the things they took for granted were now privileges they could not usurp. Elbows did not be- long on tables, backs on chairs, and eyes did not belong out of the boat! What was this guy talking about? In the words of one 79 ' er, " I knew the Navy had ships, but I hadn ' t seen one all day! " He, along with his classmates were soon to learn. They they formed up and marched to a place where they came together and were united as one. Capt. Forbes gave the oath and Vadm. Mack some words of wisdom. He said they were about to embark on four years of hard work, toil, and sweat, and though battered along the way, would emerge ready to serve their country. A challenge indeed. I f " I, having been appointed a midshipman in the United States Navy, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domes- tic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without and mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that 1 will we and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God. " They took the oath and sang the Blue and Gold for the first of many times. Now time to say goodbye, it was tough for some and harder for the rest. No personal con- tact with family, friends, or the outside world for the next two months. Many must have thought it a foolish thing to do, but if they were to be Naval Officers, it had to be done. So they were anxious to get started, for it would end that much sooner. And they began. B Rh BRS lS. ? = Those hot days of July and August. I don ' t think I have been so tired for so long in all my days. Excuse me, I should say the Class had not been so tired, for I had only been around since the 7th of July. They worked hard, and were proud of their accomplish- ments. They took pride in themselves, their class, and in the Naval Academy. They knew that they must be ready to answer the call, and not fail when it came. For those of you who never had to memorize them, I cite the fifth Law of the Navy: On the strength of one link in the cable, Dependeth the might of the chain. Who knows when thou may ' st be tested? So live that thou bearest the strain! A chain they formed, strong at every link, and they were to be equal to the task. When the day for the field meet arrived, the class was psyched, for it signalled the end of the summer, and Parent ' s Weekend, with all its enjoyment would soon be theirs. I don ' t think those girls knew too much about soft- ball, but I heard no one complain. .. , m 5 iv i- M - ' i U V- ■ jy V 9 %i V. ' li U f. ; When the Brigade returned, things got tough. No longer was it a question of 12 plebes against 1 firstie, but rather 3 upperclass against 1 plebe! It was to be a long year with many ups and downs. Mostly downs. Those guys had a typical plebe load of 18 hours a semester, but that didn ' t include a 3 hour no credit course entitled " The Plebe Pro- fessional Program " . Their upperclass expected them to get 110% on each pro-test, and that meant studying about 4 hours a week extra. But plebes are plebes, and it was all part of the game. Like I said, plebes are plebes, and ' 79 had its share ot antics. They were probably the last class to endure an en- tire season of football rumbles, oops, I mean pep rallies, the night before each game. They also saw to it the A-4 and F-4 still got their underway hours. I think those jets have seen more action since coming to Navy than they saw in the fleet. The year passed quickly though and they soon had only one more task to attempt; HERNDON. ' 76 did it up right, and without the dry run scheduled for the night before, they attempted the climb. They got close a couple of times early on, but I helped to bolster their confidence and en- thusiasm, and together we made it in just under an hour, a modern day record which, after observing this years per- formance, might stand a long time. .; If ( i ' ' ' »( ' b-vy ■. ' • ' ' ;• ' is ;,.,.- 1 . - i Having gained so much professional know- ledge, ' 79 anxiously awaited their chance to show the fleet what they knew. Armed with dungaree shirts and utility trou, these mis-matched young- sters left for some high seas adventure. How ' bout all those exotic ports; Charleston, Little Creek, Mayport, not to mention those around the world like Naples and Subic Bay. An interesting time indeed, and many took advantage of the opportunity to learn, travel and enjoy. Others, sad to say, let the opportunity take advantage of them. »1 im Sporting that fancy slanted stripe, and the exper- ience of the real Navy under their belt, ' 79 was re- united in the arms of Bancroft for another year of fun and excitement. You can see here that one youngster got a little hands on demolition training during the summer of ' 76, and tried to see if he could apply some at the ' ole Alma Matter. mm mniii mm Compared to plebe year, youngster year was cake. The academics were about the same, but now without all those " plebe " responsibilities, life just seemed to be so much easier. ' Tis a shame that too many took it too lightly, and wound up talking to the ' Supe at the long green table. The year also brought the feminie touch to Navy, thus dub- bing ' 79 as the last all male class to enter USNA. I would have said graduate, but they were still a long three years from tossing their caps, and alot could have happened be- tween then and now. They saw their way through that year, and soon found themselves embarked on the cruise to top all cruises, NS 300 and Protramid ' 77. V V : J v - ' ■: T .V- ' -S . ■ ■V -.,-:V -.V iSfc V »i iMwmi. M For myself, cruising the Chesapeake with the ships of the Naval Academy Defense Force wasn ' t bad, mostly be- cause I never ended up smelling like a drum of diesel fuel, or had to battle the bay squalls with a broken radar, but I felt for those 79 ' ers! I also never had to worry about not finishing as " E " boat and having to take the final at journey ' s end. I really enjoyed Protramid too, and I could see that the guys had alot better time as well. They got to do many nifty things like picking ticks off their bodies and playing grunt in Quantico. Those marines did it up right, and I was amazed how they always got it to rain on the evening of the night attack each week. There was also Newport where they told ' 79 they would be treated like officers in every respect, and New London, where they finally did. Each stop had its own lures, parties and good times to sway a person to their side. After all, what could be more ap- pealing then a three day sub cruise, complete with movies and a continuous flow of ice cream! And then there was P-cola with its beaches, girls, suntans, and a chance to check out the friendly skies of Navy. They were very cooperative toward the Class of ' 79 and everyone was given a chance to fly both jets and helos, with of course the approval of mother nature. There were no holds barred, and they could take up just about any- thing that wasn ' t nailed down. One guy even tried to check out in a fancy blue one, and was quite taken when they in- formed him he was in the wrong hanger and had to fly tt If Segundo year brought ' 79 many new respon- sibilities as they finally had bought into the Naval Academy, and were committed for the entire pro- gram. I saw alot of guys jump out in that summer, and felt my strength ebb every time one did. But for all that remained, I was renewed by their pro- fessionalism and dedication, and knew that they were the real Class of 1979. They got their first real shot at the helm in October when the Bus Drivers from Colorado came to town. ' 79 showed themselves well, and they were commended for it. They even picked up a victory on the foot of Bob Tata, which proved to be the only Service Academy victory for Navy that year, as ' 79 witnessed its only loss in football to Army. As June Week approached, each man awaited his chance to don for good that ring of gold. They had sweated long and hard, and finally their turn came. kVY ' MILO sfumt For most it was the chance to receive the ring and a kiss from their favorite companion. But for some, they gave a ring in return. rNN. Iu.

They were to set the goals, and the sights for the Brigade to acheive. ' 82 found that they were knowledge- able and understood the system well. From day one they marched and drilled the plebes, and told them of the school known as the Naval Academy. Not a civilian college or to be mistaken for one, but an insti- tution to be proud of. Led by Bob Walters and Dave Prothero, ' 79 took ' 82 by the scruff of the neck and transformed them into a single unit, living and work- ing as one. After the drills and parades, the inspections and in- quistions, ' 79 emerged with a leadership experience that its par- ticipants would value greatly. The plebes emerged only with an exper- ience I ' .Va I I ggr l, pp As the summer ended, ' 79 took up a real leadership chal- lenge, that of the entire Brigade. Russ Keller was ap- pointed to start the show. And Rich Reynolds took up the post of Class President. Be- tween them both they tried many ideas and many projects. One that didn ' t end up in the victory column was a challange tennis match against the ' Supe and the ' Dant. Russ and Rich gave it their best shot, even had a 79 ' er keep score, but the ad- ministration prevailed. After all they wanted to graduate too. 4 iSS jSBwH toBjIBR!! 79 ' s next challange was that of the Professional Competency Review. I had been with these guys for three and a half years, sharing their classes, drills, and experiences on cruise. I knew better than anyone just how much they knew about Wires and Steam, not to mention Nav. Based on that information I almost con- sidered the exam to be a lost cause, and that they should have started preparing for the re-take, rather than the first exam. But they pulled out the labs and p-works and those all too familiar wires books, and began to prepare. In their most pro- fessional manner they persisted and burned the midnight oil, some finally acheiving the confidence they seeked. Others banked on the theory that they could survive with the knowledge they already had and the thought that " Well rested, best tested " . and off they went. k mm !iLlliUi !

Pro Dev knew otherwise however, and they prepared a special all-star PCR, with the greatest hits off all the previous exams rolled into one giant blockbuster. An imaginative bunch, ' 79 found the answers and passed the exam with a minimum number of casualties. This was the spirit that makes me proud to be part of the Class of 1979.

Ill i f ilHi i yillftJM IwHiM i aUMlUIM HI With the PCR out of the way, ' 79 had only Service Selection and finals to deal with before ar- riving at their four year dream. Many a good time was had along the way, and I have seen them all. Perhaps the one I remember best occured with the count being only 7S A 7DAYS Service Selection proved to be the last great event for the men of ' 79, not including Commissioning Week of course. After four years of lectures, updates and the flip- ping of coins, it was now time to choose between the ships and subs, planes and grunts. For many the choice had been made when the entered in July of 1975, and they had just to wait for their turn. A few however made their choice on their way down to sign up. And then there were the surface line guys who thought they had made their final choice, only to find a bus ticket to Crystal City included in the deal. Service Selection was a sad time for me because I knew that our four years together where the Severn joins the tide were soon to be through, and everyone would go their seperate ways. I was proud though, to know these guys were about to finish the course, and that they had done well. The class had many talents and aspirations, and many took the literary form of expression. I watched the Phantom create this prose and thought you might like to see it too. Til say no more for I think it stands by itself. II it SI:: s I will talk now of ancient things, remembered here by few Beyond those here in ' 75, before even ' 72 When many things we now enjoy had not yet come to pass Which makes some writing on our walls to me seem sort of crass. No one denies that ' 39 has seen its share of war And won it, with the help of classes after and before. For this they surely rated cars, and clothes, and striper libs But did not get these things that our own Dant now freely gives. And will you now with ' 68 your parking places share Those that died in Viet Nam, its jungles and its air? And will you of your weekends give to those of ' 49? Who in the mountains of Korea formed the battle line. Why did you come here? I must ask when loudly sounds the whine- To learn to serve your country well, or to have a real good time? Time enough to par ty when the battle has been won. A quiet duty weekend? Your task has not begun. Think you now to punt the quiz, or maybe get the gouge. Never wonder whence it came, never figure how? Learning just what you must learn, forget it after test? For your class gets priviledges not granted to the rest! So straighten shoulders — stop that whine, you ' re in the Navy now. That uniform upon your back, to wear you should be proud. And maybe with some honest sweat you ' ll match the blood of war And leave a record standing with the men who went before. Phantom of ' 79 mmmm mgmm When Commissioning Week arrived, the Academy took on its new life. After watching the Classes of ' 76, ' 77, and ' 78 move on to the fleet, ' 79 was finally to get their chance to cele- brate.

They had sung it when they entered and it would be fitting to end their time with one last chorus.

It has been my privilege to serve in both the Atlantic and Pacific Fleets and I look forward to returning to sea duty July. I would like to say to each of you that my tour of duty as your Conmandant has been one nl the n memorable and personally rewarding experiences of my career in the Navy.

As they journeyed, their crews would dream of the girl they had left behind and would not see again for many months. Often a symbol of courage and strength, many a loving word was spoken, or a teasing image dreamt, such as appeared in the 1898 Lucky Bag. As the Navy changes, and women join the men at sea, these thoughts may not take the same form, though the meaning will be the same. We would like to honor on these pages those women who have mean ' t so much to all who have sailed the seas, and to those persons who will be a part of our future sailors ' lives. With this thought in mind, we present two young ladies, selected by the Class of 1979, to represent our " ?4avy Girls.

NIMITZ ' 05 Fleet Admiral Nimitz graduated 7th in his class at the Naval Academy, and went on to be one of the leaders in Naval Affairs, especially during World War II. In his career he had many outstanding achieve- ments, such as introducing the circular formation for tactics to the Pacific Fleet. At the .same time he served as Commander-in-Chief, Pacific Fleet during World War II and soon followed with a tour as Chief of Naval Operations in Washington. During his naval career. Admiral Nimitz had the opportunity to command more ships, submarines, and airplanes in battle than any other Naval Commander in history. Nimitz was also one of the foremost authorities on the use of diesel engines and advocated their use in the submarine fleet. His career was always not so spotless however, for as an Ensign he commanded the USS DECATUR which he had the misfortune of running aground. V ■ llMc: V I ¥ ' 1 L . . pj IJ?

B.D. was one of the found- ing members of " The Commancheros " and together, he and the one other mem- ber would rampage the Wardroom. Thus, having laid an early claim there, it was natural that he should be elected Ward- room President, a title he immediately changed to Wardroom Czar.

During the week you could find him in the rack (studying hard of course) or munching out in the Steerage.

But make sure if you ' re looking for him driving down the highway that it ' s a decent time of day like 3 a.m. in the morning. Love those re- laxing early morning drives, huh, Tim?

That talk must have really made an impression on him because it carried him right through to a job as Battalion Commander, graduation at the top of his class (with a 4.0 average) and a candidacy for a Rhodes Scholarship. Still he found time to be a basketball manager, and was named Head Manager as a second class. And he continued on in that capacity as a firstie. Along with the possibility of medical school after graduation came Al ' s new nickname, " Doc, " and it was frequently heard in the hall that " I ' d let ole Al operate on me anytime.

So, considering his great de- sire to become a Marine and his boom- ing voice, his classmates appointed him Company Drill Officer, which turned out to be a wise choice. As for his major, Tim entered the bizarre and magical realm of Mathematics. Tim ' s athletic in- terests were in the areas of Batt.

Opting for FPI and the rack, he raised his QPR high enough to earn a permanent ward- room seat and a slide into first class year.

Dave plans to try his luck with the No- Fo ' s and his North Dakota grease girl. • %% T-bird Mac came to the Academy straight from the Garden State. Tom ' s transition from civilian to military life was like salmon swimming upstream. But change he did. Plebe year was a great year for academics and " hard " squad leaders. Youngster year created a resur- gence in " dead bugs " and the " young- ster " syndrome. Second class year saw Tom ' s battle with the Route 50 bridge but besides episodes of the lighter side, this was a year to work. Finishing second class academics was better than climb- ing Herndon Tom was also a P-rade judge and a 2 c squad leader. During first class year, Tom enjoyed the liber- ties of being on Batt. Staff. The liberties might have been great but so was the work. He enjoyed it all. His sports car- eer at the Academy was spent playing in- tramurals. How would you sum up Tom ' s char- acter - work hard, play hard, and rack hard. Good luck in surface line.

Therefore, it made sense when he signed his free time away to the Mechanical Engineering Department here at USNA. Burning the midnight oil became a common occurrence, not that Pete turned totally into a hall-rat. He was never without the company of his southern belle when it came to home football games, concerts, or formals. That ' s where the playing hard came in.

His full length mice fur coat was nearing completion when the summer ended. Then academ- ics started taking his spare time. He still found time his first two years to keep his marksman ' s eye sharp by shooting for the rifle team.

Dale was a local boy. born in .Annapolis and raised in Severna Park. He entered the Academy with hopes of becoming a Me- chanical Engineer, but his first three se- mesters were quite rough, so he got smart and leaped for Noa ' s Ark. Dale didn ' t spend much time in the Wardroom because he had his own enter- tainment center. His home movies kept the boys of fun one warm on those cold, lonely, winter nights. Being a short person, he was able to keep a low profile and was successful in staying out of trouble, until his big mouth almost landed him 105 and two months. Dale made the bad mistake of saying something to a midshipwoman and ended up facing her two midshipmen boyfiends. Unfortunately one of them happened to be a midshipmen commander.

Ballard, known by his company ofricer as " Boogie Ballard " , came to Crab Town on the Bay from the majes- tic mountains of Colorado. If by chance you saw a burgundy Z-car passing you on the shoulder of the road, it was Boog- ie. Yes his motto " We Came to Play " ex- presses his true love for strapping himself in the cockpit of his 280Z and just cruis- ing down the road with his cassette blast- ing (Rick James of course) and his speed- ometer reading three digits. Though he enjoys the feel of the cockpit his inability to differentiate colors, namely red and green traffic lights, probably will make him NPQ. Boogie either holds or shares several USNA speed records: fastest time from Takoma Park to USNA, fastest time to and from Philadelphia. With one totaled Z to his credit. Boogie has oc- casionally come close to establishing another record. His favorite pest time was spending weekend around Mary- mount College in Arlington. He has spent a few study hours there also.

Looking for the straight and narrow path to an easier way of life he joined the Glee Club and spent more time away from his room than anyone else. But why would any- one want to stay away from the room that looked " too much like home?

Truly one of the " bad apples of Third Company. " although he never got his " Hood wings. " He searched for bigger and better and found that his aspirations ended up on his back. Henry has got it all. He ' s intelligent. He ' s handsome. Musically gifted. Ath- letically inclined. And he ' s black. (Oh. God. quick run get the officer in charge of admissions). Henry came to Navy ready to do it all. He wanted to be the token oriental, but with Grabe and Quigs around he would have gotten lost in the shuffle, so he became our token enlight- ened bigot, burning crosses on the Duck ' s door when the moon was full. Henry was one of the first of the Bad Apples to win a varsity letter, and he did it long jump- ing. However, he had an advantage over his competitors. Whenever he trained, he always carried around the Henry equiva- lent of a tape measure, and thus was saved the bother of forever hunting for one.

A hard worker. Pete could usually be found at his desk or in the gym, sweating. . - though a high achiever, success never went to Pete " s head - he won stars but never wore them. A believer in " work hard - play hard, " he joined the 3rd Com- pany circus as a youngster. Some of his more notable performances with the circus include making snow angels in the yard, falling from the duck ' s window, and ice skating on his back in front of Tecum- seh.

Pat is able to come across this way because Christ has played an important part in his life and has shown his love for us through Pat. The Navy will have lost an oulstandmg officer when Pat checks in at Quantico after graduation but one ' s loss is another ' s gain. Good luck and God speed Pat. CARL PATRICK DENNIS JAMES STEVEN CRAWSHAW Jim hails from the thriving metropolis of Shippensburg, Pennsylvania After a successful high school career in athletics. Jim opted for the free time on weekends and entered the intramural circuit. Craw picked up a few nicknames during his four years here, such as " Chainsaw, " for his vicious exploits on the fieldball (death- ball) learn, and " Mr. Unaccountable " as Company Adjutant. Off to a slow start in his field of study. Oceanography, he finally turned things around and grades began to rue. Not one to study much, he became a regular fixture in the Ward- room. When weekends rolled around, Jim could be found in his Green-Z flymg at low altitudes heading for Baltimore, and the future Mrs. Crawshaw. When not with his fiancee Linda, he could be found partying hardy with the boys doing shots of old No. 7 (J.D.), First class year found Jim to be a closet, or I should say racquctball court marine. There were a few raised eyebrows at his curly locks when that got out. Best of luck to Jim and Linda in their future lives together Look out Craw, you mav be my Bn .

Academics aren ' t one of his strong points, its been an uphill battle since the beginning.

Charlie sometimes " spazes out " while participating in athletics, but has developed into a well rounded ath- lete participating in intramurals. His love is getting hit in the face by speed- ing pucks while sitting in the goal as a target for the hockey team Charlie had another love, but she gave the diamond back for a career in the enlisted Navy.

" (MATT 25:21) d — -c t) JOSEPH EDMUND HOFFERT Joe, a native of Staatsburg, N.Y. came to the Academy after a year of college. Joe soon realized that coming to the Academy meant a more drastic change than just altering his major from Biology to Math. He managed to complete his Mathematics curriculum despite the at- tempts of several instructors to foil his efforts. Not truly appreciating Bancroft Hall life, it was fortunate that Joe found him- self at home in Hubbard Hall. As a plebe he was among the best oarsmen in the Boat House By the next year he had earned himself stroke seat in the varsity eight and has remained in the first boat ever since. His tremendous dedication has earned him a great deal of respect from both teammates and everyone at the Academy who knew him. After driving a Corvette for two years, Joe is looking for something a bit slower, like a Marine helicopter. Between his abil- ity to remain undetected after four years and " POW ' full inboard hand " on the STKK, he should be a successful pilot. % « ««0 i S f P 4TH COMPANY dfi» — -c ti IVARS VALDIS IKSTRUMS Ivars left a small, undiscovered as of yet, city called Mercer Island, Washing- ton, in a land where mountains are moun- tains, forests are green, and the water is blue to give Navy a run for its money.

An immediate hit with the upper classes for having an uncanny ability to store away sports statistics, he soon earned their respect as well by being the most squared-away plebe in the com- pany. Not only did David find cavor with the upperclass. he was. from the start, re- spected and admired by his classmates for his maturity and his willingness to accept responsibility. Yosh has been a hard worker from the word " Go " demanding more of himself than of his subordinates. The motivating force that allows David to set such high standards is an abiding trust in Jesus Christ. God has revealed a little bit of his character through Yosh during his stay in Fourth Company and each and everyone in the company has been enriched by his presence.

Sur- viving plebe year with the Cobra, Slo ' s plebe year gravy left plenty of time for H.B ' s during the following years. Young- ster year began with the letter from Main O and ended with " Blue Pants. " " Jammed by Jaws during Actramid, Slo discovered a haven in Severna Park and changed his name to " Campin ' Kaz. " The fat 2 c paycheck induced Slo to splurge on a loaded Delta, and he even traded in his previous " close-and-play " for a newer model. Slo excelled in company intra- murals 2 c year, leading the Regimental Champions basketball team to their only loss in the Brigades. First class year brought increased responsibility as Ward- room president and intramurals coach In addition, back-to-back fifteen hour semes- ters left plenty of time for campin " and golfing with Wing and Corkman.

Academics were never a problem for Mike, just as Wate rgate was never a problem for Nixon. Lacrosse was his first love, as he excelled on the JV team plebe year. Mike had trouble accounting his youngster year, but second class year was the year he bought his ugly plastic car with the cracked spoiler and the rear window that blows out when you go over 20 MPH. Mike ' s love life centered around two gails, one real, one synthetic, but was given a real boost by Goog and the Ring Dance. However, by first class year, Mike had the system knocked, with a new H B every week. For his service selection, Mike has decided to pose for Marine Corps re- cruiting posters, as he awaits the advent of flight school.

J., our favorite Philadelphian, cruised into Annapolis seeking his fortune in the sea. He quickly realized that success came not from memorizing the laws of the Navy " but from interpreting them cor- rectly. A perceptive individual J.J. sur- mised that denying plebes the use of alcohol was unethical and (if you looked hard enough) he often could be seen throwing " Brown Baggers " parties in various Crabtown locations. On these occasions the good doctor (also) displayed an unusual capacity to consume gallons of his favorite libation when everyone else was hosing on their Cor-fams. Youngster year nearly terminated his brief naval career when Sweet Sue mistook him for an unescorted civilian and never quite ac- cepted his view that long hair adds sex appeal.

At this institute of higher learning he soon established a reputation for being salty, especially in his use of fieet jargon (e.g. !!? ia ' ). He was also known for his heavy indulgence in beer and he never got along well with the confinement of the Academy as exemplified by two UA ' s. Because of his excessive Irish temper Colin became a prime recruit for the box- ing team. Within two years he made his claim to fame as Ironman O ' Neill by clinching the Brigade Boxing Champion- ship in the fiyweight class. In addition to his sadistic manner, Colin showed maso- chistic tendencies by going through the Airborne program twice. Academics were never a problem for him since he was good in bull, which happened to be his major. As the years passed, Colin mel- lowed and was tamed by a certain lady in town Chanting his motto " U.S.N. never again! " all the way to service selection, Colin decided that the Marine Corps was the only way to go. Cfe " -OY D MICHAEL C. RANZ Mike Ranz, that " crazy-wild-Ameri- can-guy.

(He always reminded me of Popeye. personally). Never one to be outdone, Mike got his jollies dreaming about how to blow things up.

Admittedly it took a lot of coaching from some real professionals and a two year visit with the doc, but T responded to treatment beautifully.

GALWAY Jeff originates from Sacramento though he made a short stop at NAPS before coming to the Academy. As a re- sult of his earlier indoctrination he breezed through plebe summer without much difficulty. Plebe year he impressed us with his practical knowledge of EE and was the mastermnd behind " the inner workings and hidden mechanisms " of our prize-winning Army project. Being a glutten for punishment, Jeff decided to be an EE major, though this has not stopped him from having a good lime. After long weekends on 3 c cruise he began young- ster year by winning a Black " N " and for the rest of the year Jeff had to keep a low- profile to avoid the wrath of " Jaws, " He had aspirations for redeeming himself 2 c year but alas there was more conduct pro- bation plus some tough academics (which nearly annihilated the EE majors of ' 79). Undaunted Jeff entertained midnight visitors, enjoyed Dahlgren Hall, and managed to stay one step ahead of the Ac- Board. Never one for dull summers he spent several weeks cleaning pistols, chasing women, and dodging stray bullets. First class summer was a little too exciting and Jeff hoped to have a quieter last year at USNA . . . Several weeks later, some fancy low-level aerobatics earned him his membership in IJAW local 7 (The United Auto-Wreckers). Jeff aspires to be a Navy pilot and we wish him the best of luck in all his endeavors. iJ! As the resident musician, " Sweet Ar- mando " (a.k.a. Gonzo), first impressed us by the total casualness with which he would handle any situation. It wasn ' t until youngster year though that this seemingly unflinching attitude was dis- covered to be usually just a general lack of mterest on his part. One of the original members of such well known organizations as the Saturday Night Ice Follies, Armando distinguished himself quickly on the field of party. Whether it was at Burger King or at Bob Ward ' s, he always seemed to find a way to make the same old drink taste so much better. This comes from his intense hours of practice in his second home, the Chem- istry labs, where he could be found dis- covering a cure for a stubborn disease or a laxative for a stubborn adversary. He will always be remembered for his soft guitar, his quick wit, and his search for Linda Rhonstadt ' s double. Although the future is uncertain, we hope he will always remain a close friend as he has been these years. ARMANDO GONZALEZ d sct THOMAS D. GEHRKI Five long years ago, Tom left the cozy confines of Little Rock, Arkansas, to make the Navy his home. Coming to USNA from NAPS, he found that one must study to succeed Study he did, and thus academic problems were never his concern. He survived the rigors of Mechanical Engineering with few prob- lems. Second class year came and Tom decided that he needed a change of en- vironment. Spending a semester as an ex- change student at West Point, Tom be- came very popular with the Kaydets , especially after he paid off all the bets he lost on the Army-Navy game that year. He will long be remembered for his love of tobacco, his toy tank, and that crazy red hat he wore. Tom waswell liked by every- one and was a true friend you knew you could count on.

We wish him the best of luck finding a P-3 he can call his own following graduation. We would like to leave Dave with one final thought: we all hope that someday his voice will change and stop squeaking. To Dave we wish the best of luck forever. DAVID A. PALMER TIMOTHY OLIVIER Everybody ' s friend Tim, I ' m sure any- one that has known Tim throughout these four years knows what a fun-loving guy he is. A stalwart on the rugby team, his finest achievements have been made not on the field, although he ' s one hell of a rugger, but at the post-game parties. This is where he really excels, throws one-liners at any babe within earshot and is a leader of those " heartwarming " rugby songs. Unlike many of his con- temporaries on the field Tim is also a standout in the classroom. I ' m not that sure about the " stand " part, but he sure is " out " a lot! Tim ' s fine effort during his first 3 years earned him the position of platoon leader. This was bestowed upon him by his ex-company officer who had noticed his marching prowess, during those stim- ulating p-rades his first 3 years. Now with this position and the honor of being placed on the Commandant ' s List, hard to be- lieve but true, he is quickly becoming a regular face in the local bars during week- nights! d ' dXX ' ' r ■i T .{. • %m «%« %« (% 7TH COMPANY h ttdforkisi AIER Greg, also known as " Pappy, " " Jack- Happy, " " Broadway. " or " Sparky, " came to USNA from the metropolis of Guthrie, Oklahoma. He worked very hard both in academics and athletics First class year he finally came to his senses and gave up studying on weekends. Greg eventually realized there was more to weekends than books. By the way, why did your sister buy you that sub- scription to . . . ■? Regardless of the rea- son, Greg had a real good time before the Fleetwood Mac concert. However, what he did during the concert can ' t be re- vealed. Greg will always be remembered by his classmates for the good jobs he did, like the rooms at Army and his ex- cellent marching cadences. He will be especially remembered by one of his roommates on whom he left a mark that will remain with him for the rest of his life. In whatever way people remember Greg, they will assuredly remember him as a true friend who would help when help was needed All wish Greg the best of luck as he goes on to nuclear power school. We are sure that he will do well, while he is in the Navy. GREGORY S. PARKER 1 i Cfeo- «-or t3 CT tir— r : FREDERICK PATTERSON Fred came to USNA from Parsipany, New Jersey and proceeded to show us how to get by with minimum effort. He didn ' t march much because of sports and somehow managed to spend his entire plebe year on T-tables. He will always be remembered for his tactful encounters with upper class and RLC. An EE major, Fred ' s altentiveness in class prompted profs to say such things as, " Fred, are you sleeping again? " Fred ' s life motto, " Only the good die young, " is exemplified by his favorite come-back, " When did you get tired of living? " , his arsenal of knives, and a car that can ' t go below 40 mph. He made sure life was never dull in 7th Company. Despite his faults (he still swears he doesn ' t have any), Carole and the Corps will be getting a good man. WILLIAM R. PONG The half-pint showed up at USNA with the rest of us back in July 75 and ever since then its been Pearl Harbor in re- verse. Bill must have liked the summer weather in Annapolis because he managed to spend the better part of the next three summers in Hotel Bancroft. We ' re still not sure whether it was the Annapolis summer scene or Bill ' s love of Engineer- ing that kept him at the Academy for what seemed like a non-stop four year program Bill ' s academic prowess was only sur- passed by his mastery of the basketball court where " Tiny Nate Archibald " did it all and led the Seadog Hoopsters to victory after victory and a 5-3 record first class year. As a partier " Ping " rated only a B-I-, but his face was seldom missed when things were really on the line at such mid-hot spots as Hood College and Notre Dame. In closing we ' ll state Ping ' s phil- osophy which can be summed up in six words, " I ' d rather be out in town. " Well our hats are off to the little guy and we wish him success in Navy Air. t %o " ' ' r ' ?:i " «km«« • %% «%« %» «(% B r i 7TH COMPANY CARL W. REHLING III Carl conies to us from Greenville. S.C. Before he migrated south he lived in Calonsville. Md. v here he was born- Early he established himself as a tough manager while in charge of the Army project our plebe year. The fight that ensued will long be remembered. Either this experience or the challenge led him to choose the Management major. As Social Director he always led the gang in table top dancing and ice follies. Two of his famous road trips are Seven Springs and Myrtle Beach ' 78. The others are inscribed on his igloo cooler which has seen much action. Carl temporarily be- came attached to the USS Schroder no option but has since changed his service selection. Like everyone Carl has idols and both of his wear number seven, Bert Jones and Jack Daniels. If Carl ever leaves the Navy he has a standing job as the Bud man since he single-handedly keeps Anheuser Busch in the black. Carl will always be remembered by " nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina with the King, " but above all as a true friend. Dan came to the Academy from a plantation in Texas, but he has made great advancement through his four years here which is exemplified by his passing up the buck board for a horse- less carriage (Firebird). His company name " Rock " stems from the fact that he was the brigade boxing champ at 135 lbs. This, however, did not seem to intimidate fellow company males against nightly room wars in which the fearless Rock always seemed to come out on the bottom. During his stay at USNA Dan went through two complete stereo systems before deciding 4 channel was the way to go. Having the biggest system in the brigade he improved upon it even more be designing a 4 channel swerler for his EE project. With so much interest in life ' s little luxuries the Navy will be getting a poor, but good man DANNY STEVENSON THOMAS G.

More than once the attraction of his rack al- tered his course toward his goal. The sleeping giant started out as a Marine Engineer, but than saw the light and switched to the " Double Major. " Thus enabling him to get more precious rack time in. After a year of crew he became an intramural jock in basketball, field- ball, football, and Softball. With young- ster year and Saturday morning TV privi- leges, his idol became the Tasmanian Devil. Many people would have thought the Tasmanian Devil to come alive after the " Big T " hit Dahlgren on Saturday night. In his last summer here he found time for the plebe detail, became one of the few and very psycho " Stubs, " and help initiate the " Toad " organization First class year brought his T A and many road trips to Notre Dame and Hood Once again the Tasmanian Devil was on the loose.

The Nevada wildman could always be counted on to either find a party or start one Those road trips l c year were all too short. Why his baby blue buggy didn ' t reach cruising speed till 80 or .so. Berg was a wildman from day one or the day he got his first stripe. A beer in the hand is worth two more in the other hand was his motto. Who can forget that night 2 c year after a particularly rough night at Timmy ' s when Berg decided to go two doors down for some female company. I guess Berg didn ' t know better. Or l c year after a road trip to N.D. as he man- aged to kick most every trash can in Tango shaft at 0400. Ask the occupants they remember. Academics never bothered Greg as he skated through System Engineering with over a 3.0 QPR. USMC data pro- cessing is Berg ' s service selection, then after a quick five, IBM.

WETHERALD Tom is not only a 4.0 student but a great sailor with a dedication matched by few in either area, Tom could be found either in the library or on the water at any given lime on any given weekend. Perhaps Tom ' s most remembered achieve- ment was his attempt to get into the library at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday morning. In everything he did, Tom always gave his best. His complete dedication to the Sailing program resulted in his becom- ing skipper of a yawl which he quickly turned into the best of the yawls. His efforts on the Honor Committee result- ed in his richly-deserved selection as a member of the permanent board. Overall, Tom was one of the hardest working and most dedicated mids in 7th company. Everything he receives he deserves. Indeed he ' s not only a 4.0 stu- dent but a class-A person. Cfe — -o t) DUANE A. WILSON Duane arrived here from Florida and revealed his initiative by leading many a plebe summer recon raid into the early morning hours, and straight into early morning trouble. He wanted to: earn a BS in Aero, buy a Datsun 280-Z, make the Commandant ' s List, and remain faithful to Suzanne. Well, he won a few and lost a few. Truly a procrastinator, he managed to " pull out " good grades at the close of each semester of Aero- space Engineering. Obviously living it up during summer leave, Duane would return to the uncollege as our " Pils- bury dough boy, " but after several weeks as Brigade Intramurals Rep, he ' d soon resume his stature as our " Little Wilted. " A master of retaliation, he could leave a verbal attacker in awe with his lightening comback. And anyone foolish enough to initiate a " room war " with him would soon discover that it was not beyond him to neatly mail his aggressor ' s mattress and half of his wardrobe out a second story window. Since he spent most of the day in the rack, and most of the night awake writing letters. Wilted was tough to counterattack. But then, that ' s what Navy Air wants.

From that point on 150 lb. football took up the time usually occupied by chasing girls.

Had he been on aptitude probation, he might have won the probation triple crown. His first crown was for academics. After one particular semester he was almost elected president of the squares club. Some mad bomber made certain the conduct crown was soon forthcoming. The second thing Tom was in the middle of was confusion. His role as WUBA gang poobah firmly established this relation. However, Tom somehow managed to keep the question- able skits alive. It is hoped that he will be forgiven. The final thing Tom was in the middle of was friends.

He even found time for academics. Finding Engineering Physics dull, Scott joined the " Bridge Builders " of Mechanical Engi- neering. Once established in the major, he didn ' t look for gouge, he became the gouge.

" To prove his appreciation for such a great honor he decided to celebrate his 21st birthday by downing 21 shots of turkey. It was a valiant effort but I think the beer chasers did him wrong. His first class cruise earned him the name of " low rent " It must of had something to do with bur- gers and beer, all night movies, sleeping in the park, and pacers. Griff has always been a good friend and considerate room- mate. We all wish him the best of luck in everything he does. Just remember Griff, life isn ' t always as easy as the high bar.

As a plebe he was a bona-fide member of the fantastic five. As an upperclass he demonstrated his academic and athletic prowess. His com- puter programming is well known to be as extravagant as his ways with women. During school one could usually find Klinger in the wardroom, weight room, or asleep. On libs he was forever in search of a place to race his car, blondes to woo, and beers to chug. A devout rock fan. Moose frequented most of nearby discos (Pier 7, G.J.

After consuming several brews and shots of Jim Beam, Dave decided he could enter the upstairs patio by using the " giant stride " method. He managed only to put his whole leg through the garage door window At the commencement of second class year, Dave turned to more serious things He set his sights on a silver anniversary Corvette, a sense of profes- sionalism, and academics.

Reuss from Salt Lake City, Utah and lots of other places (at least his parents moved a lot). Coming to USNA just weeks out of a wrist cast and shoulder sling due to skiing accidents - Jim con- tinued his plebe year doing crazy things. For some reason Jim loved the speed and grace of competition snow skiing and as a result everything he does has a touch of risk to it. When Turpin introduced the recon-raid to our receptive plebe ears Jim went crazy and got so good at it that whenever anything weird happened we would turn to recon-Reuss. Through youngster year Jim tried to lay low and succeeded since, he had found the sailing team and the Kennedy Cup. Study- ing was not one of Jim ' s favorite activi- ties but he kept at them continuously be- cause that is what keeps mids in. Always on the verge of trouble, but never really taking the plunge (or at least he has never been caught at it) would be a good epitaph for the fun-loving midshipman from the city of the Latter Day Saints. Nickname: LUUUUUUKE Luke, from Alto, Texas, came to the Naval Academy from the Marine Military Academy. Best known for his quickness and good floating ability (that is all he could do in the pool), Luke worked hard all four years so that he could play darts during exams. With another Ops Analysis major as a roommate Luke did not have to work too hard. But he did do well in classes. Though Luke was always able to get along with us when we told off-color jokes, he reverently went to church. Way- farers, and OCF meetings. It can honestly be said that Luke never seriously said a harsh word to anyone that did not need it. We will all remember taking Luke water-skiing on his birthday. He was al- ways participating in pep rallies, cos- tume days, and all those " fun " things we did during our four years here. Good luck Luke, I hope to see you in the FMF - you will do well.

Right from the be- ginning, Steve showed signs of being a potential high achiever, although at come arounds he had a strange habit of bring- ing his pet frog. " Wus " decided early in his academy career that he really didn ' t enjoy sleep, women, or weekends; so he satisfied his masochistic tendencies by following the path of an Electrical En- gineering major. By the end of youngster year, Steve more than proved his capabil- ity of controlling the almighty moving electron, which had been the downfall of so many in the past. His ability to excel, quickly carried him up the ladder of academic success. Still afraid that he had too much free time on his hands, Steve became both a Trident Scholar and 13th Company Commander. Somewhere along the line some one forgot to inform him that firstclassmen were granted unlimited weekends, and Monday nights were made for Michelob and football. Steve made an important personal discovery during his time as Company Commander. He quick- ly learned that its much harder to un- derstand the difference between right and left than it is to understand the operation of a bistable multi-vibrator. Steve ' s plans for the future include as little sea time as possible and a great deal more time be- hind the books.

Academics were never easy for Rock, but then again it did not matter unless he was below that magic 2.0.

But once he entered the Academy, Pat proved that he did indeed possess some rare skills. As a System major, he made many startling discoverys, the most important of which was " The Wazilewski Theorem, " which states that the QPR is proportional to time spent in the wardroom. He also proved that too much TV makes you go color blind, which explains why Pat ' s no longer going Navy Air.

To most, mastering, the intricacies of the the Chinese language and mind, would have been too much, but Kwai Chang took to it well, though it required total devotion to task. In fact, by l c year, we noticed his eyes picking up that oriental look, and he often skipped noon meal to eat instant rice (with chop sticks) in his room. When he did go to meal, he carried his Chinese fiash cards, and incessantly mumbled under his breath, stopping only to point out " interesting " Chinese letters. Those that say he brought his cards to the Ring Dance are wrong - Dave was on cruise then. But to the end, Dave has been a good friend.

" as Brad is some- what known as, surfaced in Crabtown, USA Preaching the sound " Yankee " wisdom his years of city life bestowed upon him, he made a big impression on all his plebe classmates; in fact most of us even knew his first name by youngster year. " Arnold " never worried about studies, as evidenced by his choice of major: " Rackematics. " Once when asked what a 6 ' N day was. Brad replied that he thought it was the number of Big Mac stops made in an Annapolis to New York drive. Nonetheless, between workouts, he made good enough grades to become " Ass " Brigade Ops. As a firstie; thus earning himself the nick- name " The Blue Whale. " (If you quest- ion) the nomenclature as his roommates about his hump), don ' t worry Brad we all appreciate you and will be sure to recogni e those triceps in weight rooms throughout the fleet. Good luck in the NFO community Brad, and quit buying medium-size t-shirts. TIMOTHY R. BOONE Tim Boone, affectionately known as " the Beast, " was one of the more amiable guys in the company. He gained his nick- name because of his avid enjoyment of rumbling. There were times at night when a loud yell would be heard and, upon entering Tim ' s room, one would find him standing upon his desk, as if possesses- sed by some demon, and ready to pounce upon his roommate. Tim was also the first of sixteenth company ' s illustrious group to bite the dust, meeting the woman of his dreams at the first plebe tea fight. 1 guess you could say it was love at first sight. Being the resident company mathematician, Tim was the only one who could figure out the difference bet- ween an Epsilon and a Delta. And what about those California street races! Tim was the only guy to ever challenge a Porsche to a race - in a 1974 Maverick. No Tim, the difference in speed between your car and that Porsche was not less than Epsilon. We wish him luck wherever he goes. •%% •%» •• O M 1 16TH COMPANY UtO....».

Nevertheless, it can ' t be denied that R.A. brought with him more than his share of charm, as evidenced by the multitude of girls that so willingly crossed his path. And his ability to remain unattached bears witness to his intel- ligence, even if his grades never did R.A. chose a Management major and turned cost efficiency into a personal way of life. He stuffed his lacrosse stick under his pillow early in the game so he could better prepare for what he did best: party. And party he did. R.A had quite a knack for making himself comfortable wherever he was, and you never saw him when he wasn ' t flashing his Cheshire grin. An avid outdoorsman, R.A. always managed to get out and get some fresh air, even if it was only while he was driving his vintage Corvette. There ' s no doubt that he ' ll end up exactly where he wants to be. JAMES D. ESTRADA " Well you can tell by the way that he uses his walk, he ' s a dancing man with no time to talk.

With his sly wit and charming smile, many a father will breathe a sigh of relief when their flowers of femininity will finally be out of his grasp. Ed ' s academic performance, second to none, last to almost all, gave the Dean a run for his money.

Ask him, he ' ll tell you. It seems as though Fred never missed a party - no matter how hard we tried to miss him. Though he took pride in his ability to party-hearty, it is widely known that Fred could get the maximum effect out of the minimum. Sunday night soap operas were commonplace on 7-1 as we eagerly anticipated tales of new loves or new heartaches. Always main- taining the highest standards of pro- fessionalism, Fred swore for four years that his hair was only 3.9999 inches long. In recognition of these leadership abilities, Fred was selected to develop 12 " little Geekheisers " during plebe detail. This done, he retreated to 7-2 as the penthouse ' s senior resident. Always an airdale, Fred drove a " Bomb-er " for two years when first class cruise con- firmed that fighters are for him. Fred, we all wish you the best of luck. RONALD L. GLASS, JR.

Johnny Glamour was rarely without his share of female admirers. Greeno ' s trademarks were cowboy boots, a can of Copenhagen, gutrot whiskey, and a feedlot ballcap. Naturally, he loved the outdoors and could always find time to get out and get some fresh air. Perhaps Greeno " s greatest legacy is his collection of amazing exploits with the Duke. Of course the Glamourous One continued the tradition after the Duke ' s untimely departure. No distance was ever too great for Greeno to seek out a big party. From his native Montana to the Jersey shore, from Florida to the Indy 500, from Japan to the French Riviera, Greeno covered ' em all. Of course, he did spend some lime at the Academy, but John had so much horse sense he rarely needed to study.

It wasn ' t easy for Tod to leave it all behind in Albuquerque, New Mexico, but he figured he ' d give it a chance. The grey skies here were quite a letdown after those he was used to in the land of enchantment, but he did manage to develop a fondness for snow. Far from thrifty. Tod was known to indulge in fast cars, fast horses, classy women, good booze, and loud rock and roll. When things got a bit too hectic for him. Tod ' s favorite escape was to get back to Mother Nature. And since school and athletics didn ' t require much effort, he spent a lot of his time working on concerts and organizing parties. When he got a striper position after serving one of the longest restrictions in history, most people suspected the stripes were an excuse to remove a bad infiucncc from the company, since it was apparent that he only came to the Academy to gel a Corvette and avoid doing his own laundry and cooking.

KIT McCULLEY Kit, receiving only green lights, traveled an entire five minutes from his home to arrive for plebe summer. Being an Annapolilan definitely had its advantages for Kit, especially in the department of female companionship, something he was rarely without. Being the son of a pro- fessional football coach, and quite an athlete in his own right. Kit devoted four years of hard work into the Navy foot- ball program. It was because of his antics on the field that Kit acquired the il- lustrious name of " Bulldog, " or Dog for short. Bull-dog was famous for never leaving a room without taking a last check of his glamorous profile. On weekends one could find Kit driving a silver Porsche with a classy woman in the passenger seat heading for a little of the good life. The good life is where Kit is destined, for as he goes forth from the Academy his positive attitude will surely make him a winner in whatever endeavor he undertakes. 8 3 cr ' r i After long deliberation Kent decided to give up the leisurely lifestyle of the South Carolina Plantation Belt for life along the Severn. He brought with him the money-mindedness of Andrew Car- negie and the academic prowess of Charlie Brown. Although out of his " literary " element as a Physics major Kent studied hard and eagerly awaited each semester ' s finals - not for the grades but for the money During one parti- cularly difficult semester he collected $627.23 in pennies from the base of Tecumseh. His was the first car to be financed by the superstitions of mid- shipmen. On weekends when Kent wasn ' t collecting returnable bottles he was venting schizophrenic tendencies in the only socially acceptable way - acting. As a Masquerader his roles ranged from Constable Warren in Our Town to Captain Morton in Mister Roberts. Kent takes his learnings and earnings into a career as a surface jock with the philosophy, " If you can ' t dazzle ' em with your brains, you can fool ' em with your mimes. And as a last resort you can buy ' em with your bucks. " KENNETH P. MORTON ■■sen fro DAVID M.

This manna from the top rack, accurately described as " cookies, " was however, hardly edible. Dave ' s uncanny ability to study has made more than one person feel guilty. The word " neck " must have been made with Mack in mind. Dave will also be remembered for sponsoring one particular " religious retreat " to the hills of Tennessee at the beginning of first class year. " Goin ' Buck " seemed to be the favorite sport that weekend along with " kill the keg " as the suave Tennessian showed everyone how the hillbillies really party.

NORTON Cteo — -orjti DAVID PROTHERO i m Coming from a family of ten, Dave opted for a less crowded environment; one in which he could be an individual and not just a face in the crowd. At USNA, he soon became recognized as an authority on all subjects. His know- ledge extended from the mechanics of how to catch a rainbow, to sports cars (he drives a 1974 Gremlin - " The Beast " ), to the philosophical proof that he was God. In addition to his overwhelming knowledge of the trivial, Dave also displayed an uncanny ability at salesmanship. Not only was he able to babble at length about anything, but he could easily convince his listener that it was true. This talent proved quite useful at striper boards. During one particularly verbose board, Dave managed to convince them that not only should he have stripes, but that he should be Commandant. Later, after they had regained their senses, the board decided to give him five stripes. Dave ' s goal in life: " To be king of the world. " If anyone can do it, he can! At least, that ' s what he told me. BRIAN A. RODGERS Brian hails from Spokane, Washington, a semi-urban mixture of homes and forest.

Reknown for his politeness, particu- larly his occasional " do you mind? " Tom made friends with incredible ease, espe- cially among the ladies. Although he could often be found in the sweat mode during the week, his keen aptitude for work never interfered with his propensity to party on weekends. Most of us who have known Tom agree that he definitely came on strong in all aspects of his day to day experiences, good and bad ones alike. Graduation day will give Navy Air an out- standing pilot in Tom. DAVID M. JACKSON It was not surprising that Dave " Action " .lackson came to Canoe U. He is the third generation (on both sides!) to survive P-works, Steam and Wires, for three years. Dave directed his efforts in sailing ocean racing yachts. The climax of his sailing was to go abroad on the " Alliance " to Scan- danavia and a trans-Atlantic passage. First class year he decided to get off the water and enjoy some weekends. " Action " took up scuba diving and re- building his ' 66 bug. Academics never bothered Dave, a Management major.

He eventually got used to late nights and ended up doing quite well. Always ready to party with the boys. Joe was involved in most of the big ones. As a Washington Raider, he came to know and love RFK and the monuments. A cool man about campus, he also had his share of experi- ences with the young ladies. As the de- fensive rock of the company football team, he had a big part in winning the Brigades. Taking up company basketball, his moves on the court never ceased to amaze.

When the others decide it ' s time to quit, Tom is getting down lo business, and when no one else can be found, Tom Is there. A brute on the football field and a fighter in the classroom, Tom storms through coup- ling talent with tenacity. To those under him, Tom is always ready to listen, and he is quick to spot the one who deserves a pat on the back. He is a friend like no other, and is as humble as he is upright.

Every evening before forma- tion you could depend on him to be in the rack. Eight nights a week you could de- pend on him being in Rickover Hall, at least until first class year and long week- ends. Those years in Rickover are re- flected in the high grades of this Marine.

He really had no choice as weekends were few and far between, with necking for Mechanical Engineering and rowing crew Henry finally saw the light and left crew to play rugby. He also stopped scrapping ceilings as he found himself a little woman and now has a reason for weekends. However, if you see this tall, husky blonde drifting by, grab him and be nice to him.

Hound Dog shed his extra pounds and became a quite cap- able Rugger. Fitting well into the life of a Poly-Sci major it was often that you " couldn ' t see the rack for Hogan. " Beginning around the middle of youngster year, with numerous meals at J.H.U., Hound Dog began to find those lost pounds again. Old Bulk Item ac- cumulated a few pounds and nicknames.

Ken quickly adapted to the east coast and began to talk like the rest of us, except when he was necking out on Physics. Besides being a Physics major. Ken majored in Star Trek, Star Wars, and anything else that could be called spacy. Ken wasn ' t just a brain however. His last two years were spent as a cham- pion skeet shooter, feared by everything that flew, except the wasps in the target house. I guess Ken got tired of the desert because he chose nuclear power and the submarine service as his service selec- tion. Ken has always liked the " sewer pipes " and he even managed to spend his 1 c cruise on two subs instead of just one. Ken ' s a true doublemirot kid.

Mark entered the academic scene with a brief sojourn as an .Aerospace major. Next he applied his efforts to General Engineering but quickly found that he was still dissatisfied (for several different reasons). Finally. Mark recognized his true interest was in History and he delved into reading, and every once in a while he even read a history book. MARK D. LEE C)S it feo- • v r ti WILLIAM EARL McLAIN, JR. Since coming to the Naval Academy via NAPS. Earl has developed into one of the most respected men in the com- pany. Taking pride in his job and making sure that it is done well is an attribute that has served him well the last four years and will continue to do so in the future. Although size prevented him from starring for the " Big Blue. " he brought his exceptional talents to company heavy- weight football and helped them roll to two consecutive brigade titles. His career at Navy was filled with exciting cruises both abroad a nd at home. Philippine photography, whales, and car washes seemed the most fascinating to him. How- ever, he always returned to that good ole town of Eastport where his true heart lay with Soozi. Never a day passed when the word, call Soozi, did not echo throughout the company. A dash to the company of- ficers phone sufficed until it was time for Friday ' s dash to the Accord. Best wishes and high flying to you and Soozi. Many thoughts and prayers will be with you both always. ROLL TIDE! Megs left the snow drifts of Minn, in .luly of 75 to come to the Naval Academy. Throughout his four years at the Aca- demy Corby was a hard worker although he did have some rough times. Second class year Corby acquired more demos in one weekend than the combined efforts of the second class in the company. Through these bad times one quality of Corby ' s really stood out. His sen.se of humor and easygoing personality usually saw through to the good side even in the worst situations. Corby and his van made it down to O.C. in May of 78 and provided good times for all involved. He also con- tributed a great deal in helping the com- pany win the Brigade heavyweight foot- ball championship second class year over- all. Corby was a great person to know, even though at times he was the " fugliest " man in the world. Good luck and smooth sailing in the future corpeeee. •• J r.

DAVID GUY SHAFER SHANNON DALE SAUNDERS Shannon came to the U.S.N. A. from Savannah, Georgia with a 1 year stint at NAPS under his bell. Because he was a N.APSTER, his plebe summer room- mate thought he had it made. However, Shannon quickly dispelled all his expec- tations when Shannon used the wrong finger to support his brace. Shannon ' s love for the rack never ceased through- out his four years here. One of Shan- non ' s greatest attributes in his athletic ability. He could have been a start punter for the " Big Blue " if he hadn ' t decided to spend four years on the links as a var- sity golf- " pro.

Adventures with " Mad Dog " marked a plebe year capped by a stellar perform- ance at O.C. Berserk ' s youngster year was marked by academic stars accom- panied by an equally impressive military performance (svith more of both to fol- low). That year, B-kirk opted for Indy- 500 over O.C. Second class year proved Berserk to be very adept at night time academics. Here he began his campaign for company commander with the promise of " a pumpkin for every room. " This was the year that Van B. returned to the O.C. lineup and proved that his strict high school training days provided him with an indelible capacity to imbide in lebations.

Needless to say, he often questioned the sanity of that decision. Before he knew it, however, he was a second cla.ss, and resided himself to the fact that he was going to join the Navy after all. Even though Sam ' s true love was En- gineering, he decided to pursue an educa- tion in Economics. Of course he had more than enough Engineering to satisfy him while he was here. Although Sam was a conscientious student, he always man- aged to find time to enjoy himself. He will always be remembered for bringing back the " Old Bardstown " from his family ' s distillery in Kentucky for June Week. During his tenure here Sam was quite an athlete, most likely due to the " count- less " hours he devoted to his semi-annual workouts. He was also regarded as a fierce competitor in the sport of knockabout sailing.

It is a purely academic question; however, since he does equally well at both. Although 6 a.m. runs often bothered his roommate, help on celestial (col- laborate to graduate) was an even ex- change. Chuck took active part in several im- portant ECA ' s - Bridge Club, Indian Giver Productions, and his pride - the Distance Running Club. Setting the 100- mile relay record and running the Boston Marathon four years in a row is some- thing to be proud of. By putting forth such effort as this, he thoroughly con- vinced his roommate shat all runners are nuts. Leslie left the clear blue skies and warm tropical bree es of Hawaii and came to the Naval Academy in .luly 1975. After arriving here he found out that he did not like the hot and humid weather nor plebe summer and he wished he was back in Hawaii. Although he was the oldest child in his family he was shorter than many of his classmates. When winter came during his plebe year he looked forward to see- ing his first snow. Many people thought that it was the funniest thing in the world to see a guy from Hawaii playing in the snow. Since he was from Hawaii many people thought he could surf and swim. The truth is he has never surfed in his life and he hates to swim. Leslie had never sailed before he came here but since that time he has become a member of the sail- ing team and has sailed during his sum- mer leave He wanted to fly so he majored in .Aerospace Engineering.

This " Big Foot " hails from Harrisburg, Pa. where he used to play on the hardwoods. Sasquatch ' s first bril- liant accomplishment here at Navy was a varsity letter plebe year in basketball. Then a new coach said he couldn ' t play NCAA basketball. His second achieve- ment was passing WIRES (LTM). Dave was one of the true leaders in accepting the fact that women were here to stay at USNA, especially when Nan-O came along. Dave gave 2 years to varsity crew which was a lot of fun. We won ' t ever forget when he ran the Maryland Mara- thon and his roommates were taking bets of when he ' d fall over. But seriously folks Dave always enjoyed photography, es- pecially " Artistic " pictures. Well, take care Dave. All your " little buddies " wish you the best in the Marines and through- out your life.

After tak- ing a brief detour to NAPS, he slill de- cided on the Academy which was an early indication of his marked persistence. Among his few belongings upon arriving was a lacrosse face-off stick that was to earn him a plebe-year N-star and a few ill-fated bats. Plebe year was quickly for- gotten as Youngster year brought many trips to the Buzzard ' s dart board. Exper- tise was soon obtained by Vincc in this favorite past-time. Vince felt he was doing really well in academics until the Admin- istration informed him of a 4.0 scale in- stead of a 2.0 maximum. Junior year brought a short-lived new Vetle that somehow transformed into a Chevy pick- up and camper after 3000 miles and a third N-star in lacrosse. First class year, Vince was introduced to the Flying Club. Here he spent spare time and very spare money whenever unoccupied at Spa Cove apartments.

But then Ron had a way of pulling off capers like sleeping under the stars on the Ad- miral ' s lawn, forcing the cops to pull over his. instead of a classmate ' s vette, and bringing Bruce back from D.C. This latter feat so surpassed his earlier bouts with Ralph at Lisa ' s and PSU that he was awarded a Navy " N " . Ron had his lighter side however. He could pull any one-liner from out his big assortment of national lampoon absurdities. He was only a slight pyro-maniac in that he got his biggest kicks from using his room- mates deodorant to blow torch innocent bystanders (moths, sleeping roommates, etc.) We never could figure out if he was a true insomniac but he is the only person we have ever seen that could pull back to back all-nighters. It is a known fact that if the body doesn ' t get enough rest it will suffer.

California, only to be confronted by the frightening experience of Plebe Summer But B.P. overcame this major obstacle by joining the F.xcused Squad. However, X-Sqad couldn ' t help him all the time so he negotiated contracts with several teams to act as manager. Jeff f inally became Regimental Subcom- mander during Plebe Summer after a long three years. It must have been his grades that convinced the striper board. Jeff sometimes amazes people but has always been a charmer with officers and women alike. His talents will carry him a long way. He has always been a source of fun, football tickets and a member in good standing with the USNA rack team. Jeff has provided us with many memories and we wish him luck in whatever direc- tions he chooses. JEFFREY ROCKER RUSSELL S. PENNIMAN, IV Russ came to Canoe U, from Virginia or California, take your pick. He was tall and quiet, but that ' s misleading appear- ances for you. While he was here he participated on the rifle team, the fun- nelator team, the rack club, pitched for the Softball team, and was on the " will you please walk a straight line, asked the O.D. " club. Of course he is also the un- disputed car derby champion having lost only once to a very fast and tricky tele- phone pole. His car finally gave up on him one day and proceeded to burn up Well renting a car isn ' t that bad. The list goes on. He sunk a motorboat, interviewed the Duke, opened a grilled cheese sandwich factory, produced rum punch that was deadlier than his driving, and as Walt Wood ' s final goodwill gesture, he was volunteered for Plebe Detail Russ plans to fly for the Navy (sorry Croom), as soon as we can drag him out of the ward- room.

Second class year, he toned down his act as a result of Capt. Mayague? and rooming with Supermid. But he never lost his sense of humor. He found bananas in his ear, MIBs in his hand, and speeding tickets in his pocket. Second class year was a long one for Temps. Cables kept him on his toes and at the parties, he earned his title of Bogart to complement his famous Groucho routine. It ' s been said that when he finally made it to first class cruise, he spent it all ashore chasing down some Canadian lovely he met in Italy. But Flamestilli made it back and as a firstie we only saw him on the weekends because he decided to finish his career at Navy like he started it ... as a ROTC, at the University of Maryland. We loved his art, hated his Yankees, and his friend- ship will be a part of us forever. STEVEN D. WALTON Steve enjoyed life among the evergreens in the backyard of Mt. Rainier until suicidal tendencies drove him eastward to the Naval Officer Factory. After sur- viving the thumb screws of plebe year, Steve resorted to fighting back by be- coming a secret member of the ' Voung- ster Derelicts and regressing into manic depressive fits while agonizing over " the big decision. " Steve often escaped to Penn State where he once encountered the mysterious One Ton Wagon. Soon, grand things began to happen. He signed away his economic well-being for a shining plastic symbol of Freudian masculinity. His girl. Tammy, arrived and settled in a Gate 8 getaway special apartment. A varsity letter made its way onto the scene as Steve lowered his ERA to match his IQ. Speaking of baseball, as he always does.

WILLIAM PETER MARRIOTT II MICHAEL LYNN LONG When Mike Long made the long trek east from Eagle, Colorado in 1975, it seems by strange coincidence that half the population of his town decreased. Mike obscured himself in his early years here at Navy through a continuous sports- exempt ECA program. His D B and Masquerader involvement mark him as a real man of culture among his barbaric classmates. Although an ME major and damn proud of it, it is rumored that Mike secretly regrets not having been an English major. Mike ' s per.sonal difficulty in engineering is best expressed by his long study hours — indeed it seems that eight hours of sleep a night are barely enough for him. Mike is going Navy at service selection . . . well that ' s all any- one knows because he is drawn equally to surface line, NFO, Nuke Power, and Musician ' s Corps.

After one year, he decided academics didn ' t agree with him and took a vaca- tion in Texas to play football. Homesick for the Blue and Gold and beers at Dobbie ' s, Dave returned to join the class of ' 79. We can ' t say life with Dave hasn ' t been fun He didn ' t have an easy time, (football player never do) but he worked hard and always kept his and our spirits high. Willy, as his friends called him, had his good limes though. He used his summer vacations in Annapolis to keep ahead of the ax board and his classmates in the dating game. The list is endless, but Dave hasn ' t found a noncatholic girl yet. With Dave, however, things take time. Things like buying cars, girls, and grad- uating that is. We ' ll be leaving Dave be- hind, but our thoughts and prayer will be with him and we hope he joins those of us in the air community soon. We also wish him luck in meeting a nice girl like the waitress, in the restaurant. ► 21ST COMPANY II NAVAL ACADEMY BERTHING SHIPS JAMES McLEMORE WILLIAMS III MAC . . . Go Razorbacks . . .

Chapin The four years at Annapolis have taken Carey further away from the things he left behind than distance can describe, but the horizons he discovered during those four years speak well of his adapt- ability and his appetite for life. His new found talents range from acting in movies to sailing and driving erotic foreign cars ( " Say, what is that you ' re driving?). Known for his late night talks and early morning walks, he soon became an expert on the Naval Academy subway system. His strong sense of commitment revealed itself early and repeatedly, especially with those long trips to Radford. Carey ' s willingness to lend an ear or a hand will be remembered by those few who knew him well. Some people hear, other people listen. Some live life, others simply let life pass. CAREY A. ARTHUR 22ND COMPANY DAVID ALAN BEAM Declining scholarships from Howard and Tuskegee, David came to USNA from San Diego, Calif. After a real plebe year. David showed, with the help of the Lord, his vast academic talents. With a display of accomplishments ranging from a double major in physics and latin studies to becoming a Trident Scholar, David never stopped proving his God given talents. According to David, this suc- cess is the result of help from the Lord and his own philosophy of working hard at school and playing hard while away. However, while away, David found him- self still at work as a pentegon intern, and a member of the Mexican studies program in Mexico. A devout Christian, and member of the navigators, David is one who will always talk with and help anyone, no matter what time of day or night. Spot always has the strength and character to endure whatever obstacle presented to him. With a face that never stops smiling, David plans on nuclear power training after graduation. MARIO RODOLFO BLADUELL Mario didn ' t have to travel far to en- roll at the school on the banks of the Severn, hailing from nearby Arlington, Va. Plebe year academics had him wor- ried that the trip home might be even faster, but a benevolent Ac Board de- cided that it would probably be more en- tertaining to keep him around for awhile. (Obviously, they never had to suffer through any of his so-called jokes.) Realizing that his road to fame lay not along academic pathways, Mario devoted his energy and considerable talents to other pursuits, quickly establishing him- self as a stalwart on the brigade social affairs committee, and also along the way finding the time and inspiration to design the crest for the class of " 79. A renewed commitment to the Lord gave Mario new inner strength and the will to persevere in his scholarly endeavors, and whatever expertise he lacked in wires, he made up for in his mastery of foreign languages. Mario ' s aspirations to be a pilot must have been evident to anyone who experienced the terror of a low flight through the streets of Washington in his formula firebird. With an artist ' s eye, a comedian ' s wit, and a Christian ' s heart, Mario will undoubtedly find his own unique route to wordly and spiritual fullfillment. M VfN • l o mmm.

Growing up 58 minutes away from Bourbon Street has got to have its ef- fect on a person and Ted was no exception to the rule. By the time he was 14, he knew what to order when he went to the bar — " J.D. on the rocks, please. " Along with developing his taste for the luxuries of life. Ted refined his technique with the fair sex to the point that by the time he arrived in crabtown, he was simply awesome to see in action. With his daddy ' s car. his blow-dried coiffure, and his $140.00 set of earrings, Ted was equipped to conquer even the most callous of hearts, especially when he came armed with the slickest line to be found in all of the second wing. Being well acquainted with the properties of motion of fluids and other natural bodies. Ted quickly gravitated to the Oceanography Major, where he proved to be a scholar as well as a gentleman. Postgraduate plans in- clude a stint as a surface warrior before moving on to join the boys on the white sands of Pensacola. Uncle Bud left the great metropolis of Vestal, N.Y. to be adopted by Mother B. When he arrived he was promptly given the title of " The Ice-cream Soldier " by his favorite (?) first class. All the kidding never seemed to bother him. however, as he quickly set the tone for an excellent four-year stay. If you could get him away from his cookies and milk. Bud could repair almost anything. He was never afraid to take anything apart, and he usually got it back together with a mini- mum number of extra parts. The only thing Dan had trouble making work was a relationship with a certain N. Y. lady. In general, however. Bud was very good with the girls. They all seemed to want to take Bud home and take care of him. Seriously, though, Dan could always be relied on to help out a classmate. He was one of those rare individuals who would give you his shirt just for the asking. As he launches into his career, he leaves behind some great memories and a hell of a lot of friends.

Matt is an avid music fan whose tastes are quite varied; although Randy Newman ' s " Short People " will never make his lop ten list. " Frodo " had a little trouble with academics his first few semesters and he had to give up his var- sity lightweight crew aspirations for study time and some good old redneck skoal.

There were quite a few rough times in those earlier years at USNA but Matt .saw them through with the unfailing support of his very attrac- tive fiancee. Miki. Matt ' s visions of wearing green after graduation turned to blue with the ring of gold he gave the future Mrs. Brower.

Being deprived an opportunity to dis- plav his talents on the gridiron, Tony turned to Rugby, playing " A " side his last two years. Indestructable on the field or at the parly. Chit was a " stablizing " influence for the Navy scrum. In academics Tony won the best grades with least effort award. Only three throb and negs equaled his wardroom time, and their QPR ' s just about added to his. Tony always displayed an even and controlled demeanor. Wreck his car or insult his girlfriend and he would just laugh, but disturb his sleep or steal his beer and he would fly into a furies ' rage. Tony ' s approach to women was the same as his approach to Rugby, frontal and brutally direct . . . somehow it seemed to work.

As a " semi-profes- sional " magician he amazed us with his expert slight of hand. Known also as the " Comic Book King " and a " Star Trekie " for his expertise of trivia in these fields, he was the undisputed champions. Unfortunately for Vince he was born twenty years too late, because he was one of the original " Greasers. " Besides women, music was his favorite pastime, and he eventually became a terminal member of the Album of the Month Club. During first class year he could be found on the weekends in his " sin bin " indulging in activities called Van - Ins. After gradu- ation Vince will become a Surface Steamer, and no doubt he ' ll do well in the Fleet and beyond.

Four years later and 40 lbs. less, the nickname was a vestige, but his talents and abilities were more apparent than ever, clearly illuminated by 4 bright stripes and a QPR that was out of sight . , . But we were no longer dazzled. Wayne possessed a sense of humor that bordered on dementia. This may be par- tially explained by his long stay in Turkey, during which time he was first introduced to the pleasures of the harem and recreational pharmaceuticals.

But Perry had the good sense to leave after Isl semester and it was not until Wayne ' s sabbatical at Colorado Springs that he recovered from the loss.

After spending l C cruise as a spoiled and pampered pet of Uncle Hymie ' s, a career in submarines and a meteoric rise to the heights of nukedom seems written in Wayne ' s stars.

Striving to maintain a low profile, Fitz scrupulously avoided the upperclass his first year. In pursuit of this, he sought asylum from both the administration and his phobia of P-rades and drill, and found it sailing on a Blue Pig. Ensconsing himself in a crew that preferred a victory party to a victory, Denny skated through his Youngster Year. Disdaining the regimen of second class summer, Denny opted for the Newport to Bermuda race instead. Enjoying himself immensely, he not only left his mark on Bermuda; Bermuda left its mark on him. Hobbling through second class year, Denny studied intensely, majoring in late movies and cheap paperback novels. E.xhibiting exceptional professionalism as a Y. P. commander during his first class cruise, Denny returned to Annapolis to endure the rigors of many a personal green alert. Now. Denny plans to head down to Pensacola and enjoy the free- wheeling life of a Naval Aviator. With his excellent party experience, he will no doubt be a success. Born and raised in the Bayou country of Lafayette. La., Andy Hagelin arrived in Severn Tech and quickly established himself as an unrepentant son of the con- federacy. His teetotaling habits distin- guished him as one of the rarest breeds of Midshipmen, although his abstinence from vice never seemed to cramp his style at any party. With everyone else in the process of raising their blood alcohol level, the " Cracker " could usually be found turning his considerable southern gentleman ' s charm on some un- suspecting young lovely. A sportsman in the finest Navy tradition, his recreational pursuits were always guided by the same philosophy — " If I can " t win. I ' ll cheat. " Never shoot pool with this man. As a firm believer in the " man-whole " con- cept Andy chose to apply himself to a double major — Management and Tech- nology — and proved to be as adept with the books as he was with the ladies. His cool head and unshakeable morals will continue to earn the respect of all who know and work with him. Answering the call of the sea, graduation will find Andy pursuing his naval career as one of surface line ' s finest. J.

Youngster Year was spent in pursuit of the finer things in life, mainly goof juice and members of the opposite sex. Maturing into a second class. Doug divided his time between defending his younger sister from the amorous advances of his classmates and trying to keep his sails from lufting in many a 90 knot wind. As a first class, Doug has traded his collection of 150 lb. football splinters for an occasional starting position on the defensive squad. Enjoying smooth sailing, Doug now takes his dip cup and dice to Hyman Rickover, in hopes of rolling for a spot in Uncle Sam ' s Nuclear Navy. We all wish him luck, and hope that he finds the Barbara Streisand of his dreams. . Jl CTxtr- -r JW %tt • %% •• O as — «.

To prepare for Navy Air, CHOPPER spent his spare time jumping out of airplanes, swimming under water, and of course, chasing females. Since the latter pursuit required the most practice (or so he said), he quickly became involved in the Social Affairs Committee and excelled so well, he was elected Chairman in his I C year. By this time Roger was a man of many social AFFAIRS having found the " Good Girls " early in his 2 C year, in addition to the local bait. While not reading aviation gouge or putting quar- ters into the telephones, Rog could be found studying on occasion, enough any- way to sweat through the rigors of Poli- tical Science. Well known throughout the Brigade, Chops will always have many friends. The question is, now that he is ready for Naval Aviation, is Pen- sacola ready for him? r Rob left the only inhabitable spot in New Jersey to come to the Academy in the summer of ' 75. He overcame an early culture shock during the T.J. to Lenny transition by sharpening his neck more than sixty hours a week during his prime. After a six month vacation in Colorado Springs Rob returned to become one sandblower who discovered what it was like to march in front of the company. Robidy proved he could play hard by drinking classmates under the table in Georgetown. He was also famed for his long study hours, his ice-blue suntan, his self-hair-cutting ability, the Bell Tele- phone caper and his TKO on Roger out- side Pier 7.

Bruce ' s other major accomplishment lay in his being easily the most exper- ienced marcher in the company, and a member of the " I love it here!

When all is said and done how- ever, after Ashton puts on those ensign boards, the academy will lose quite a unique individual while at the same time the Navy will be gaining an officer that will bring credit to the service.

Bruce ' s achievements during his four years here include 6 letters from varsity track (one of which was obtained while being cap- tain during his senior year) and surviving one of the most difficult majors (next to history) at the academy, naval architec- ture. As far as females are concerned, there is no single woman in Bruce ' s life as of yet, but with his purchasing of his blue three-inch tool with stripes and his ability to sway any girl of his choosing, that shouldn ' t be too long in coming. In Bruce, the fleet will obtain a very com- petent officer. For collateral duty, Prutz can be an oddsmaker.

His solution to a hard test was to sleep on it. He was quickly drafted into company sports and helped lead the basketball and fast pitch Softball teams to brigade cham- pionships. Joe also pictured himself as another Fonz or John Travolta and even went so far as to buy a pink suit to im- prove his image. On weekends, Jav was always cruising in his formula with the tunes blaring and a small blonde huddled up next to him. The only problem was that the Maryland State Police also found him cruising a little too fast sometimes. We can all see Joe in Pensacola now, flying by day and cruising by night.

Chicago Heights isn ' t the hub of the universe, but after four dismal years on the Eastern Seaboard, it ' s in close contention. Don came to Navy to play baseball It was only fitting that his plebe summer squad leader be captain of the team. He had a good time plebe year up on the hill, but after only one season of the stiff and squirrel routine down below, he decided to call it quits. His knees thanked him. Don made some great friends during his four years at the Academy. Tubby, Helen, GO. and Sue-Sue top the list. His absolute best buddy was Wiljam, though, and it would ' ve been a tough four years without him. Don-Don and Jam got to be pretty good U-haul drivers. They could tow a car just about anywhere.

After high school and a semester of college he enlisted in February of 1974. A year and a half later Wayne received an appointment from the Secretary of the Navy, and arrived at the Naval Academy in July of 1975. Although a management major, he had plenty of time to sail in his four years. As a freshman he sailed with the AIl-American Doug Hart (76), and after sailing with Pete Hyers (77) as a sopho- more began racing on his own. Gaining experience with Jasper Craig (80) and Elaine Jacobs (81), Wayne was elected Captain his senior year. His service selec- tion will bring him to Pensacola after a TAD lour at the sailing center. WAYNE A.V. DARINZO 24TH COMPANY MICHAEL A. DEAN The graduation of Michael Allan Dean proves that you can get through the Academy and still maintain your own identity- His individual identity is 791 567. Calling both Northern California and Minnesota his home, his overly optimis- tic attitude towards life has kept him happy and his roommates perplexed through the past four years. Sometime around third class year he " discovered " the inverse relationship between his QPR and hours slept, and adjusted his rack schedule accordingly. His natural love for the sea and math has led him to an Operations Analysis major and several tours of engineering duty with the YP squadron. A member of the ring and crest committee, his own ring has a deep ocean-blue stone, reflecting his pride in being a member of the naval profession. (His subscription to Proceedings is paid up for the next two years.) His own re- volving set of short girlfriends have all had to face the cruel fact that his true love has been and will always remain the sea. 1 i TERRY MICHAEL DRUFFEL Druf came to USNA from Chicago after short stints in the fleet and NAPS. Plebe summer proved that he truly is the cornerstone of professionalism. Due to the fact that he holds records for being involved with the most E.C.A. ' s, having the most collateral duties, standing the most duty, having the most visitors in his room during study hour, eating the most brussel sprouts, and asking the most plebes whether they have sisters (and meaning it), it is no wonder that he hasn ' t had time to make a service selection. First class year brought three stripes and many a studyless night presiding over honor boards. As Brigade Vice Honor Chair- man, he was seldom in his room but people could always tell when he was there by that mysterious squeek that so often protruded from his chair. The end- less afternoons in the weight room proved to be too much for the Hubbard Hall gang for Terry became the first coach to stroke a crew barge into submersion. Nobody knows where Druff is going in June but we all know he will have a suc- cessful naval career. f «•««!% -iJIfp ' Y- tCjjiJ ' 24TH COMPANY JAMES DUANE FAWCETT Jim came to us from the sun, sand and surf of southern California While in high school, he looked forward to going to college, instead he came to Annapolis. He still insists that one day he will go to col- lege The Academy has really changed his identity though. His plebe summer squad leader commented on his physical like- ness to a gun projectile, with his short, stocky build and buzzed plebe haircut. From that day forth, he was the bullet. Bullet ' s greatest love is football and in this, he excelled. Being a four year let- terman and a two year all-American, he was the natural choice for defensive team captain this year. Around the company during football season, he is quite peace- ful probably because he uses every bit of emotional and physical strength to punish opposing team ' s bodies on the field. Bullet wanted to fly badly, until he was stunned by a nasty 20 30 eye exam. I guess it will be SWOS and F.A.O. for the bullet. He doesn ' t really mind though, he ' ll be a wealthy executive while we ' re still wear- ing blue. f:i tr " " r fe Born the son of a diesel boat sailor, I ' ve spent my entire life on the Eastern Seaboard. Though born in Charleston, S.C, I call Key West home, I was able to live my dream of coming to the Naval Academy after a short diversion to NAPS. While it can ' t be said that I was an academic wizard I managed to get by. My best memories are the times I ' ve spent with the rugby club. The games were great and the parties better.

Still, many was the time when the " tutor of 24 " rescued the unen- lightened from academic darkness. His own homework was something that got done after midnight. One day while Jerry was idly sewing patches on his famous B-robe, he was struck by the thought that his life needed more than another lecture by Prof. Calame.

Erik immediately went out for track and lettered in every season, be- coming the best shot putter and discus thrower in the history of the Academy. As captain of the Track Team, he spends most of his waking hours in " The Pit " training for the NCAA ' s, but you can be sure " OG " never misses a meal! Erik has done well as an Ocean Engineering major even though he values his full night ' s sleep above all else. Summer leave has always brought travel adventures to this Viking-blooded Dane whose journeys are almost legendary.

He sur- vived plebe year with nothing worse than an obsession for brushoffs. But three weeks spent jumping out of perfectly good airplanes must have jarred something loose because Jim did not have a real youngster year. Instead of enjoying life Jim stayed up late most nights outlining his books in so many colors that they looked like the NBC peacock and drink- ing more coffee than Juan Valdez could grow in a lifetime.

Instead he found himself fighting for weekends. Being too small for the big boys. Tim went out for 150 ' s. but he spent most of his time resting up for his big chance. When they finally let him take to the field with his speed, he saw plenty of playing time, but come the following sea- son he was overlooked again. Too bad the coaches made the same mistake twice, but Tim wasn ' t satisfied with being on only one varsity team.

Plebe year saw him writing letters to a dozen different girls every week. Youngster year saw Tim over at disco D meeting a dozen new girls every week. Second class year saw a drastic change which enabled him to partake of some of the finer priv- ileges allowed him. In other words, he moved into the company wardroom and only came out once a week to memorize the new T. V. Guide. " Mule ' s " study habits caught up with him first class year though, when he made Moke ' s list and received woodchip honors. The memories are endless and. like Tim himself, will never be forgotten.

Tim immediately became a hard- charger here at the Academy by taking a double major (History and German) and rowing crew off and on for four years. He will be remembered most for his great sense of humor and quick wit. Tim was always ready with a witty comment (whether you wanted to hear it or not). He was one of the most sophisticated mem- bers of our group. He listened to Mozart. smoked a Danish pipe, wore tweed jackets and drove a Mercedes. For- tunately he was only sophisticated dur- ing the week and on the weekends he be- came a complete derelict. Tim became a confirmed surface jock after a foreign exchange cruise with the Danish Navy. Unfortunately, he doesn ' t realize that LST ' s aren ' t sail-powered and don ' t serve beer. .Always ready for a good time no matter what the situation. Tim won ' t soon be forgotten.

Throughout his stay, Justin could be found standing in a six foot square cage allowing a hard ball to be thrown at him. It must have been a worthwhile habit, because it earned him a varsity letter and the name of " Rat- man. " His senior year, Justin decided to give up academics for auto mechanics.

Youngster year army was another exper- ment with mend bending: five days with- out food or sleep, but plenty of drink. Easter saw the Phantom skateboarding down the side of a mountain. Sometimes without the skateboard. Segundo summer saw the acquistion of the average white van. which was broken-in soon after in one of many excursions to the Shenan- doahs.

Youngster year another major change took place in his life. After a meeting with Jack at Disco Dahlgren, he met the love of his life, for better Orr worse. Now his favorite songs on weekends are " Oh, Baltimore " and " Short People. " But there has been a change for the better in Rob A.L. (after Lisa). He spent a month in Tango Company and was deep-selected for captain after squashing his tennis racquet. His only disappointment in the last few Octobers has been seeing his Royal hopes yanked away.

Due to his constant imitation of Felix Linger, Steve soon acquired a second nickname, " The White Tornado.

Then he bought a wrench, pounded a little, and built the meanest Vega-vette ever. Crew and Vega-vettes were just two of Carl ' s four loves. They took a backseat to Carol and surface line. Well, we wish you well. Kid. Four year of high school at the Marine Military Academy prepared Mike to continue his " Grunt " education at the Li. of Navy. Meeting all of the qualifications of a Grunt was no problem for Mike, he was going bald, had one word in his vo- cabulary, (Uurr-aagh), and went nuts over the gun salutes at P-rades How- ever, a revelation inspired by Adm. Rick- over soon gave Mike a new goal in life, to become the first nuclear powered grunt. The Stallion will drive a nuke tank with Bose speakers hanging from the side so he can disco through the battlefield. His famous light show at Club 6061, com- plete with all its catalog ordered gadgets, will surely subdue the enemy in awe. Surface line will claim old gramps for his initial tour, then on to law school? ? ' ? MICHAEL E. KENNEDY TIMOTHY P. HEWITT Huey came from that great megalopolis that no one ever heard of . . . Wellsboro, Pa. Now that you know the town ' s name that ' s all you ' ll ever want to know about it. And if that makes you think the home- town is small, you oughta see him! Fits the image — small guy from the small town. This little guy did have big ideas though — like majoring in the big field of Naval Architecture — but the idea kind of deflated when he failed 4 finals one semester. So the major was wisely changed — to Man Tech!!, the " double major. " Heck, this guy wasn ' t as dumb as his qpr said. But still to graduate, the kid had to reach back and pull ou t all he was good for. I guess he made it. He also got engaged youngster year to a home- town high school sweetheart. Maybe he was as dumb as his qpr said. Huit was a friendly guy though — that explains why no one would room with him 1 c year. So all his friends wish him well. G-by!

The restaurant started out popping a few pots of popcorn, soon rice, steaks, etc., etc., were added to the menu. The menu is left up to your imagination, because if you want it, he has the utensils to cook. Did you say how ' s his lovelife, well the " ole Heartbreak Kid " has finally been tackled. After rooming with Guam for four years, no matter who he lives with he will gloriously acclaim the role of Oscar Madison. He may be a slob but I can ' t help agree on one thmg. his taste in women and cars, beautiful and a Trans-Am, the necessities of life Fair winds and smooth seas as you sail on to be the first Guamanian CNO (don ' t laugh folks).

Unlike many classmates, he hasn ' t changed. Ma, , more than anyone else I know, is able to get along during the darkest hours. Meetings with " Captain Jack " took about as much time as academics, things weren ' t exactly bright. By the way, these meetings were not concerned with earning the coveted " E " . Never one to have much liberty Junior year due to academics, he " no-showed " his own ac-board for his prized " rack-time " and finally lettered at Navy. His love for athletics and desire for challenges led him to be a leading cox-swain on the crew team. Many long, cold afternoons were spent with these guys on (and in) the Severn. Max means a lot to his friends including a very nice, understanding chick from " Joisey. " Tunes wouldn ' t be as fun without Max around. Hopefully he won ' t follow the fate of his three previous " roomies " who now attend various civilian institutions. .Srncc " happiness is found along the way, not at the end.

POOLER Brian gave up the smoggy industrial area of Pittsburg for the salty breezes of Annapolis national park. By maintaining a low profile in sleepy hollow and with Cob and Nelson for roommates plebe year, he quickly became attached to his studies and could never be separated from them. Through his remaining years, he held the position of leading academian in the company, even with Cory for com- petition. He was seldom seen in the hall during study hours, opting for the more " wired " atmosphere afforded by the EE labs. And. as our most honorable mid. he devoted many hours to the support of the honor concept. It seems he could never find enough time to devote to academic endeavors, though, and sacrificed many a weekend, even when his classmates had duty and he didn ' t, to the quest of know- ledge. He is a likeable person and stands by what he believes. The Marine Corps will benefit from this educated officer and gentleman. •• «%J " p 27TH COMPANY c:teo ' —-«. t5 RONALD G. RAHALL " All Hail Steel City " was this warrior ' s cry from Pittsburgh. Leaving behind the smoke and smog of Pittsburgh ' s factories, Ron settled in the Naval Academy Hilton for a four year stay. While serving his time Ron acquired an alias or two. The upperclass called him Dad or Mr. Worm; for the plebes, just plain sir sufficed with a lab coat, surgical gloves, and his four associates — Hector (donkey), a dwarfed troll. Medusa (a rat tailed cactus) and Harvey (6 ' 1 " ' " with pukka rabbit) — Dad was a dead give-a-way as the 27th Co. shrink, who lent his wisdom to solve the mental dilemmas of the 27th Co. brain trust. Besides Dad ' s easy going nature, he had a serious side, and that was his devotion to Christ. His guiding verse was Jer 9:23-24 " . . . Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches: but let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the Lord . " Ron is a mechanical engineer. He plans to take his knowledge and associates to join Adm. Rickover ' s nuclear Navy. Godspeed, it ' s been great knowing you. • %% In I97.S our golden boy, .lohn " J.J. " Rendine arrived at USNA via Imperial Beach, California. John, or Deenie as he is sometimes known, adjusted quickly to Navy life by learning to wear the flame retardanl suit which enabled him to make it through plebe year. During his four year course in learning how to walk on water, John tried to set a company record for living with the greatest number and variety of guys. His roomies ranged from Smittie and Guam plebe year to Pos, Cob, Bill Yalen. and Ed Merkel before settling down with drill sergeant Kennedy second and first class year. Never one to pass up fun.

Youngster year the company finally realized that " Bud " had been hit- ting Dahlgrcn quite frequently. Bud wasn ' t too popular m the company until we realized that his mom can cook and his fiance was good-looking. These two fac- tors lead to Budman ' s rising popularity On the serious side, we are looking for- ward to the day Bud and Linda settle down with a bunch of little kids in masks and capes, WILLIAM S. ROSE MITCHELL N. SHIPLEY Nelson strolled into the Naval Acad- emy a sweet unsuspecting young gentle- man. Hailing from McLean, Va,, Mitch seemed to be able to do most everything right. As a member of the Varsity Gym- nastics Team and Trident Brass he was always on the move But Mitch had good qualities too. For example, he holds the USNA record for commiting the most class A offenses without getting caught. In his later years he also became known as the " heartbreak kid " (and that isn ' t the only thing he broke). In his first class year we began to notice Mitch getting into the habit of jumping out of perfectly good airplanes. Milch was last seen heading for the wild blue yonder of Navy Air and we all wish him the best of luck. ALVIN R. SMITH Smitty, alias " Aqua-Man " arrived on the morning tide. Smitty lettered three times in the " tower jump. " living up to his nickname — Smitty spent extra time perfecting his techniques for the 200, 400, and 40 minute swims! Applying proven techniques learned as a management major, Smitty wisely invested in a Trans Am. Over hill, over dale, you could hear Smitty yell, " Have CB will travel. " Smitty held a special place in his heart for his studies. In fact, because he loved boats and wires so much, he gave up part of his summer to make room for him to take them again! After rooming with Smitty for four years, it ' s still a mystery to me how someone 6 ' 4 " can keep such a " low profile " for so long . . . " Party Hardy! " Let ' s not forget Smitty ' s self- di.scipline or lack thereof while in the P.I. All things considered, Smitty has chosen surface lines as a service selection (so he could be close to his natural habitat ) Good luck.

YALEN Bill, who hails from Sudbury, Mass.. is never al a loss for words, but is always at a loss for roommates. During his stay al Navy U. he has had X roommates of which 2 have already gone civilian line. Many blame this on his Jewis h back- ground but his last roommate, of Arabic descent, denies this stating that peace negotiations were successful and mutual shower rights were established. Bill ' s magnetic personality is evident in his smooth way with women. Many of the letters he has received from his lady friends smelled so sweet they had to be hung with his dirty socks to mellow them out enough to get close enough to read them But letters aren ' t everything as his luck with women has been about as good as his luck with cars — in both cases he has been unable to keep the same model for more than 6 months. His amiable personality and thoughtfulness for others has earned him much respect. Bill is an EE major and plans to join Rickover ' s Navy. Hi O xtr- ' -r s THE CHAPEL GLENN L. ZITKA Dr Z rappelled out of N.J. awhile back, but his rope parted depositing him on the steps of Mother B. His problems quickly began as the O.O W. mistook him for a lost laundry bag and promptly shuffled him off to 27th Co. for safe- keeping. When he awoke he discovered that he was a second class with 5 years of service ahead of him — too late! To reduce his resulting trauma he resorted to rappelling off 6-4 in the evenings. (Don ' t forget to wave to the jimmylegs. G-Z!) That far off look in his eyes quickly re- veals his desire to be somewhere else, like Coast Guard, maybe? Glenn is the most considerate and generous person a body could hope to meet. Even though a sawed off, na- poleonic F-4 jock almost ruined G.Z. ' s amicable nature. Dr. Z prevailed.

A., " Van has probably gotten more good deals out of Annapolis than anyone except his two ex-roommates. This, along with his Bull-major status, has enabled hmi to finish his academy career with the highest skake factor allowed by his pro courses. The list of milestones in his Navy history is impressive, sleeping until quarters plebe year unscathed was one. Third class year he did a lot of waiting . . . for the Company Commander to get lost, for his weekly beer at the Dove and for four months for a certain commodity. As a second class, it delighted his heart to see plebes scamper up flame alley to come-around. P.W. Chertavian will no doubt continue to overcome future ob- stacles with the same perseverance and fortitude that he has demonstrated at Navy.

No one can tell the difference anyway. The company flamer throughout his first three years, " Kamikaze " got the word and became an aptitude case. This is evident to the most casual of observers, including Uncle Tom. Randy moved his 3.7 to a smooth 2.7. dropped his four striper position to become a MIR, and has become President of the cynical so- ciety. Randy believes in college life and is striving to make Navy meet his standards. This is being accomplished by the " ex- tended " liberty which results in the in- famous burger runs.

He then turned to his first great love " pump- ing iron. " Eventually, his t-shirts began to fill out, clo.set doors were broken, and an extensive use of the mirror was ob- served. After the " hulk " got used to his new found muscles, his roommates stopped collecting hazardous duty pay. During his four years here, Don ' s tastes in the opposite sex have been very selec- tive. For a girl to have half a chance with Don, she had to possess a chest larger than his, have won at least two beauty con- tests, and seem like a " real nice " girl. Don is a helluva parlier. After his first beer he gels a little loud and his ears turn red. After his second, the grin and winks appear and no one has ever seen him reach his limit of three. When it comes to academics and hard work, a limit is never reached. Don ' s tireless effort to main- tain his high personal standards in every- thing he does, serves as an inspiration to those around him There are rumors now thai he might become one of those few good men.

He found it very dif- ficult explaining to his classmates that living in the swamps does not make one a good swimmer, which can be proven by the fact that he made the varsity rock squad plebe through second class years. He finally failed to make it during firstie year, by passing all of his swimming tests on the first try. After getting zapped as an EE during youngster year, he decided to major in drum bugle corps and trident brass with general engineering as a minor. His love of trumpet playing (es- pecially " scream " trumpet) can be seen in his collection of jazz records including Stan Kenton, Don Ellis, and Maynard Ferguson (who are they ' ?).

Plebe year was an interesting experience for him, considering he was almost as old as the company officer. Being a veteran of NAPS and the fleet, Sherm used his prior knowledge to give the upperclass the impression that he actually knew what he was talking about.

Second class year came around and he was well prepared with his new car parked a few steps from the gate and his new found bachelor- hood.

Youngster year Ish and the rest of the motley crew could be found at any of the various Annapolis nightspots, here is where his true genius was recognized. Back in the hall Steve though quiet had his moment of bril- liance. He was always one to look on the lighter side of things. Not one to study too much Steve ' s grades reflected this, and it finally caught up with him 2nd class year.

Big Al (alias 007 Kuong) decided that he had deprived the women of America and the profs of academia long enough; so he traded in his speedo for disco lessons and a degree in EE. Al ' s small stature often led people to under- estimate his diverse talents, including his ability to discreetly fit in small areas, like mailbags. What Al lacked in inches, he maxed out in charm, quick wit. and an amazing knack for " pulling it out " under seemingly impossible odds. Bored with last minute success stories and academic specialization. Al decided to expand his horizons with General En- gineering, rescue first aid, and a flashy ' 78 camaro. loaded with more communi- cations gear than most destroyers.

" Plebe year for Todd wasn ' t blessed with fair winds as survival became a way of life for this fourth class. Youngster year arrived and Todd settled down to more serious business. Selecting Naval Architecture as his major he spent most of his time trying to keep his head above " C " level. Second class year and time to move out — still one of the few surviving Narcs, Todd took on the additional responsibilities of plebe indoctrination His boisterous contributions in this area earned him the fourth class award for " reaming and screaming above and beyond the call of duty. " Believing that an undue privilege was earned, Todd helped initiate the new second class rate of unlimited weekends. Toddle now spends his time cruising through first class year with the Nucs waiting for him in the fleet and candy wailing for his graduation. Good luck! " Wild Bill " hailed from the land of neon lights, showgirls, 24 hour gambling joints, and ranches, to join the ranks of the men of " Loose Thirty-Deuce. " Bill ' s lust for life, and woman, was just one facet of his vivacious style. You might say that he even " indulged " a bit his first year here at Navy just to assert himself as a crazy guy who would try anything once, just because it was there . . in the MHP Bill ' s second year, however, cramped his style when company officers and OOWs alike decided to insure that his antics were one-time performances. Bill has had to fall back on his academics and women to keep him out of trouble ' . ' This new insight, and his perverse sense of humor will serve him well either high in the sky or beneath the seas If it sounds like Bill is an indecisive guy, well he is, but there is method in his madness. During his career at Navy, Bill played both hands against each other and leaned back and let the cards decide his fate. Fortunately, he usually found himself holding a royal flush. To a good friend I wish him only " fair winds and following seas; " for any other state would cause his ocean structures to fail! WILLIAM D. NOBLE DAVID MICHAEL MCDONALD - David reluctantly left the beautiful hills of Lynchburg, Virginia full of high hopes for the future. While not all of his dreams were fulfilled, many did come true. A notable success was his achieve- ment in the chemistry major, an endeavor aided by his nocturnal activity which earned him renown as a man who doesn ' t need to sleep. Other gifts included a running ability, honed sharp in ten-mile races, and a sense of personal creativity which earned him a reputation as a radi- cal. His imagaination was evidenced in his love for travel. Perhaps the most widely traveled 79 ' er in the company, he found that the Philippines were definite- ly not Capri! Not the least of his faults was his love for the Yankees, Bullets, and Redskins. And the way he bragged about Virginia Tech, he should have gone there! But then he would have missed the Ring Dance. David ' s personal inter- ests included ice skating, skiing, photog- raphy, and developing his green thumb.

We always wondered why an army brat should pick the Naval Academy for his schooling — then found out, quickly, that it was the only school close enough to make dining out at home (plebe year), to mold area libs into weekends (3 c and 2 c) year), and to make every day a week- end (l c yr), into reality . . . while main- taining his military lineage. Steve was a hard man to pin down — the marines cer- tainly tried hard enough . . . and found that the closest they could come was a babe named Sue, or maybe an after lec- ture beer bash, or was it giving him the 3 stripes and a green c.o. to go with them. What finally got him was plastic money and a flashy Z. No. our 3 striper was a difficult man to define.

Second class year brought Ken his last challenge from the Engineering side of USNA. After wires, steam, and boats were over. Ken said he could finally learn something. First class year found Ken cruising in his " Green Machine " and com- mitted to surface line After graduation, it will be back to the West Coast and pursuit of a naval career.

" Jerry came to the Academy with the glistening of gold wings in his eyes and aerospace engineering in his heart, but was steored into mathematics just in time where he found a home and many early evenings in the rack. Jerry was one of tho.se guys who could get better grades by studying less. Finding the secret to 2 c year one evening in early October he lost his heart, his weekends and his paychecks to a lass from Bowie. Jerry decided to blend a little green into those gold wings and will have to stop at Quantico on his way to Pensacola. Good luck, Jerry, watch out Pan Am!

During his sabatlical here at the Academy some have accused this man of moonlighting as a Midshipman. How- ever, those of us who know him realize that his many ECA ' s have on occasion kept him from his studies and professional activities. Active member of the " Fred- erick five. " " mental bus " and backshaft tribunal, this stronghold of the interna- tional rules has blazed a trail from the sign in book aboard the love boat to the musk ridden chambers of Hood College, all in the name of developing the morals of lonely young girls. Unknown to many are the commenda- tions this man has received during his time at the Academy. Named to the Dr. Brunza order of merit, the Toad was named " Schaefer man of the year " 77-78, and awarded the Navy Cross for the man- ipulation of his Visa bill which made " Deep Creek Lake massacre II " a pos- sibility The only lewd science major in the Academy, upon receiving that diploma, will be quoted as saying, " You can ' t stop me now. " yc h JEFF DODSON HEADRICK f Jeff came to the " club " from the boom- ing metropolis of Sweetwater, somewhere down " thar " in Texas (how long does it take by covered wagon anyway?) and quickly made his first discovery — there are places with more than 1 stoplight! " Jeyf (down-home pronunciation) soon had his classmates trained in remedial Texan. Although NASA seemed to con- trol his deep-space departures, his formid- able mind was usually occupied with the rigors of ocean engineering, the major he came to know and love as he pioneered " sleep efficiency " 2nd class year. His busy days, however, were oftened brightened by a cute young artist from Texas. His quiet manner, a clever guise, secreted an aggressive spirit that spent itself during late nights (water buckets?) and wild rides when he " piloted " his white formula. Jeffs service dreams were dashed when he learned that there were no nuclear- powered aircraft Jeffs kind. Christian personality and continual concern for his classmates will be long remembered and will serve him well, be it in the air, under water, or on the range. " Osim " or " Boo Apha " to his friends came to us from sunny California, al- though many of us thought he was a foreign exchange student from Japan. Plebe year Jim was the only plebe who could give a full chow call in Japanese (at least it sounded like Japanese to us). At the end of plebe year Jim sold his soul to the God of EE and spent the re- mainder of his stay at Canoe j. sweating over Therinen, Norton, Santoro and other things beyond normal comprehension. Second-class year Jim found time for his favorite pastimes, Ronnie, racking (es- pecially in Dahlgren Hall heads) and working triple integrals in his head ( " I can do it in my head " ). First-class year Jim ' s time was spent working on restoring his ' 65 Mustang (Hopeless cause?) and a certain young lady in a blue Camaro. In the end Jim ' s love for Navy Air was super- ceded by his desire to be one of Hymie ' s boys. Jim, is prototype really as much fun as Pensacola? JAMES A.

Mark was never nice enough to throw us a few of the scraps after all the girl friends he went through in his four years here.

The quiet and well meaning guy we all knew plebe year blossomed into a true partier youngster year and was well known as Tom ' s keeper. Ray has never been the same since he lost heart to one of those Texas sweeties. The only Ops. Analysis major in the company, Ray was doomed to spend many long nights slaving over a hot computer terminal or running from " the integrals " . Ray doubled as a pincushion as the doctors at Bethesda tried to decide what one thing he wasn ' t allergic to. Ray was quick to volunteer for anything; roommates, YP cruises, intramural referees, 2 c company ad- jutant, and any other " good " deals we offered him. " Luker " was our honor rep and as such spent many long hours silting on honor cases. His high sense of Christian ideals will always be a source of inspiration to all of us. Ray changed his mind about Marine green, and the skies of Iceland will be his P-3 ' s home. i .

Tom saw his daydreams turn into night- mares as he became one of " Denny ' s boys " during plebe summer. Youngster year found Tom with a varied appetite and an insatiable thirst as he delighted in eating stereo boxes, doors, and a pack of Red Man every now and then. Often known as the " unVette, " Tom ' s dream of a " real car " took over a year to become a reality. As for the degree in M.E., well . . . second class year almost took care of that. Never one to let it get him down though, Tom took things in stride It was the " beautiful women " idea that we never quite understood where he was coming from, (as his adventures at the P.T.

He bagged-uh-foughl his way through 4 years as an " ancient cultural engineer " and it was smooth sailing until Joanie took away his most prized possession. First class year we found Ray watching his hairline reced- ing and playing 3 striper out in town. He donated his stubby legs and bear claws to the 150 lb. meat squad and his fiancee donated his ' 66 ' Vette to a used fiberglass factory. Although he never did achieve his secret ambition of becoming a Y.P. commander or a D B ' er, he did manage to put up with constant abuse from the same " wild and crazy " roommates for 4 straight years.

A native of Thriving Loves Park, Illinois, Melch breezed through plebe year by relying on his experiences in the Corps as well as a distinctive sense of humor. It wasn ' t until the second year that Bob found two new loves — a girl back home and more importantly, sport parachuting. Never one to let trivial items such as academics get in the way of extracur- ricular activities. Bob lived for the week- ends when he was usually seen with a girl in one arm and a parachute rig in the other. Despite serious doubts during sec- ond class summer, this talented stud re- turned to the club with a wide grin. Seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, Melch forgot the old adage, " Men ' s minds are like parachutes — they only function when open, " and wound up facing the green table. He made it through un- scathed, however, and now looks forward to the day when he may again don those marine greens. The decision to attend the Naval Insti- tute of Technology (Annapolis Branch) was not easy for this life-long believer in the teachings of Jimmy Buffett.

With a firm grasp of economics he wisely managed his time between the deep blue of the rack, wearing down a spot in the wardroom and an occasional boxing match- Yet he was always willing to give helpful advice to those who needed it, indeed he was always the soul of tact, patience, firmness, prudence, sobriety and brevity; and he richly deserved his nickname of " Mr. Warmth. " He fell off mountains with a lost platoon of marines first class summer and found it a safer occupation than driving ships, and so turned down many promising offers for work after graduation including Nuc. power and one to head the N.A. " s alcohol rehab, program for the U.S.M.C. After bidding us farewell and good rid- dance, he left us with those famous last words we can only hope to put on his tombstone: " And may there be no moan- ing of the bar when I put out to sea.

WALTERS When Walt came roaring down out of the Pennsylvania hills, the " sleepy " Balti- more-D.C. area had already lost its chance to shift gears and match his pace Voted " The Mid most likely to spend a million dollars before graduation, " R.V. was two months ahead of schedule at the end of 2 c year. Owning a 2-1-2 " Z " , a touring motorcycle with trailer, two stereo systems (car and room), a larger wardrobe than Charo, and a well polished guitar (for blackouts), had admittedly oc- casioned more than one call to " Nose " (a.k.a. " Mom " ) for a little extra scratch. Obviously not one to do anything halfway, Walt decided to graduate in the top five of his class, be a Trident Scholar, revamp the pop concert committee, bring Evelyn Wood " sped redding " to USNA and in his spare time, run the second regiment. After graduation? on to M.I.T. for more fun and games; this time courtesy of the USMC. What will we do when we can no longer hear the " Yeah, right; check; I ' m gonna buy . . .; " and " Hello. Nose?

One of the good ole boys from N.C., and a former tar heel for a year, Al came to USNA expecting to continue his college education, but he got more than he bar- gained for. However, he took it in stride, and discovered some of the nicer things about being a Mid. Like owning a shiny TR6, with a blonde for the passenger seat. With a driving ambition for stripes, Al won ' t mind putting in a few years to get them, and he has the ability to go for the gold for however long he decides to serve our Navy. ALAN MARK WEIGEL JOE WELCH Joe also known as " Jumpin Joe " hails from nowhere in particular being an Air Force brat but likes to claim Texas as his home. He has spent a great deal of his time at USNA talking to the squirrels while looking for small white balls in the woods. Whether by luck, natural ability or lack of competition he somehow man- aged to letter for all four years and was named captain of USNA ' s hit and hunt team. Joe realized youngster year that " poly sci " was keeping him awake during the day and giving him nightmares at night. He then hopped on the Graduation Ex- press and was thereafter found checking the alpha code on his pillowcase. A steady customer at Disco Dahlgren, Joe was famous for finding " females?

WIRTH When not actively pinging down the halls of Bancroft Gustav can be found sweating over the latest form of torture from the systems department, not having been content to be solely a EE. Since afternoons and weekends were filled avoiding YP ' s in a dinghy, the sun often rose with the night oil still burning, the calculator still blazing away, and the moth squadron still making deadly strafing runs. His " wirthless " circuits aren ' t pro- grammed for love, but we are sure he will find someone with whom to share his computer. Wherever he goes Mr. Wizard is sure to amaze those around him with his analysis of the situation, and if he can get used to going to sea in something without sails, he should make the sub- marine force a fine sonar. 1 36TH COMPANY QSJUO..- C«P ' 1- : d -«--o t UPSTAIRS MAHAN HALL Big Dave, or " The Drewsman, " as he is affectionately called by his classmates, came down from Homes, New York with dreams of climbing into the cockpit of an F-14 someday.

A hard- charging aero major, he could often be found somewhere in transit between the lab deck and the computer center of Rick- over Hall.

Being 5 foot 5 has never hindered his quest to become center of a basketball team. He proved that this goal was reasonable by touching the rim of a basketball hoop. A poet by nature, he coined such phrases as " G-cubed, " mean- ing gut, glory and greatness, in addition to " battle trim 122 " as mottos for his quest to become a seal. He became Jean Claude Killey and Mario Andretti rolled up in one when he decided to take his car on the slopes. Acting very modestly how- ever, he made it appear as if he lost con- trol. When he decided John Denver had nothing on him he took up guitar playing, which fortunately was not accompanied by his singing. Not being known for fast cars and fast women, Emilio quickly dis- pelled that theory by buying a Watkins Glen pace car laden with decals and pic- tures of women running. He is living proof that you can never sell Bermuda short. d x3r-ts v OI ' •v •— O ¥ 36TH COMPANY 2 K •SBiai, ait kis dis(: NewVoilr lltWlpilj, fOfliSillij; »i.!atljicj ilso l»« : ird: NiiBii: rstotife- coild ills: liil bcliK: rctittrdl, aged to H.

Though he was late to bed he always turned out the light with the noble intention of getting up at 5:30 to study. Many a roommate can testify to the 5:30 alarm clock that " rang forever. " Ken was different from the normal Mid in a few ways. Some guys re- ceived a few " CARE " packages to help them through the trails of Plebe year. Not K.B., he had to muster a ten man working party each week just to carry the chow to his room. Away from his studies. Ken spent a great deal of his free time ripping up carpets, painting garages and chopping wood for 36th Company ' s adopted parents, the Glenns. He did lake time to try his skills of snow skiing his 2 c year but 4 feet down the slope and one broken ankle later he hung up his skis for better days.

Run- ning the 100-mile relay while on excused squad and maintaining his sanity while refereeing arguments between Hobo and Flea. Bo will always be remembered for his athletic prowess, his beautiful sis- ters, the famous Hatch-Beauchamp loop, the Bo layup and one-handed catches.

A true lover of art, he could often be found decorating the bulk- heads of his compartment with such diverse artistic tools as oranges, lacrosse sticks, and full jars of jelly.

The week ' s intense study was surpassed only by his weekend follies. He could be seen fleeing the .Academy accompanied by a strikingly beautiful Latin escort. But when Rock did hit the town with the boys, he did it in style. Famous for confronta- tions with " The Stranger from the F,ast Netherlands " and " The Bush Lady. " Jim never was one for an ordinary Satur- day night. Renowned for love of fried chicken. Rock was known to have eaten ten of the feathered little beasts in one J sitting. jl He excelled in academics as a chemistry major and can boast of amazing success in intramural sports ranging from squash " k (I to boxing. In all seriousness. Jim will make an excellent addition to the surface line community. Lookout Admiral Farragut! Mike was the wooly mammoth of the 36 Co.

Never one to let his school- work interfere with his education, Mike was a trivia maniac, founding such terms as " Mercedes-Lynn ' s Frazzlers " and " The Wild and the Wooley.

Hobo was not 36th ' s smartest best athlete or most profes- sional, but his " happy-go-lucky " manner has made him the most likable.

A true athlete both on and off the field. Artie was highly skilled in chasing down ground balls and long passes, not to mention chasing women, at which he truly excelled. Sci- entists will be pleased to learn that he mastered the technique of " study by osmosis. " On many a night one could find him " hitting the books " for that big exam the next day by lying in bed. closing his eyes, and placing a textbook on his head. Artie ' s big surprise came first class year when he found out he ' d have to close down the homestead and migrate to 4-1 as a regimental three striper. When AJ hits the fieet. he will give new meaning to the well-known phrase, " When you care enough to send the very best. " We ' ll miss you. my man. Ken came here from New Jersey ready to play soccer and study Oceanography. Soccer lasted a long two years and Ocean- ography a short four weeks.

The move into the humanities field elimin- ated Ken from a shot at nuclear power, a near fatal blow for him He rebounded with a relaxed outlook on life and a devo- tion to Sandy. Simon and his family. A true believer in the age-old cliche " life is too serious to be taken seriously " Krop laughed his way through the Aca- demy and will continue enjoying life as a Navy pilot and married man after graduation. KENNETH JAMES KROPKOWSKI WILLIAM FRANCIS KAUFFMAN Georgia-bred William Kauffman. alias Wild Bill, alias Johnny Ringo. came to USNA for one reason, to fight. Never for- getting this, Wild Bill could frequently be heard talking about being a mercenary in view of his academic record or saving his classmates by jumping on imaginary grenades. His esprit de vie spread to other areas among them fieldball. rugby, batt football, boxing and gnarling with the opposition coming out the worst for it. Being a triple major in wine (well Chevis Regal), women and song. Bill could always be found pursuing further course material. Summer nights in Georgia, Saturday nights in Dahlgren, Graduation nights at Richie overlook and too many nights at Donetellis were among his better performances Crazy encounters of the enjoyable kind is the best way to describe Bill ' s four years here and once he starts flying Naval aviation will acquire a dedicated, com- petent individual who will always keep his squadron entertained!

Firmly believing that naval of- ficers had some semblance of manners, he took on a Trident Project dealing with " chivalry " , but eating in the wardroom soon put an end to his silly, outdated ideas about gentlemen officers.
