S wetland Associate Editor Aibert A. Ttiomas Layout Editor Ctiristoplier S. Cooke W} Dedication . . . The Class of 1981 will always remember Admiral and Mrs. Law- rerice. From the very first day • July 6, 1977 ■ they were here with us. After reporting aboard in August, 1978, as Superintendant, Admiral Lawrence stressed to us the importance of a " commitment to excellence. " The Class of ' 81 internalized his message and responded with outstanding performances in all categories. Admiral and Mrs. Lawrence were the class ' s biggest supporters. Whether it was a sporting event, a Masquer- aders production, or a Glee Club concert, they were always there in the front row, center, to show their support. No effort went unnoticed by Admiral and Mrs. Lawrence. They were always the first to congratulate outstanding performance. They mode us feel welcome at their house whether it was a June Week Garden Party or a academic year reception or just a place for guests to stay for the weekend. More than anyone else, we have Admiral Lawrence to thank for keeping our Service Selec- tion free of any draft. It is not possible to list all the things that these two wonderful people did for us. We hope that we con show our appreciation in a small way by dedicating the 1981 Lucky Bag to Admiral and Mrs. Lawrence. Thank you! To Vice Admiral and Mrs. William P. Lawrence til ' ■♦» Hi MISSION — of the — UNITED STATES NAVAL ACADEMY To prepare midshipmen morally mentally and physically to be professional officers in the naval service. We at the Naval Academy are fortunate to be here. The opportuni- ties for scholarship, leadership, athle- tics, and friendship are boundless. But the Academy is not an ordinary place It is an institution that has survived the test of time. Perhaps the best description of Annapolis is " Navy - the Uncollege. " Our school is a unique one among universities. Hopefully, this Lucky Bag will shovj just how different we are. V I .

Stu blessed with the initials of an uniform S.D.B. followed suit and became a Navy man. Coming to Canoe U. from Fairfax. Vriginia. Stu still had a bit of the Wild Blue bonder " yearn in his blood and had aspirations of boring holes in the sky with one of Navy ' s birds. Consistent with these ideals he became an Aero major and soared to awesome heights in the Academic sky. It was not long before he became known as the man to see for help in dynes, statics, calculus, or whatever, and his labs and notes saw action on many an academic battlefield. Stu was never one to miss a party or good time. A lover of sports. Stu could always be counted on as the wild-card in the deck on a 8-ball court or as an odds maker whenever a bet involved the Redskins. All this success eventually led to Stu becoming the company ' s Head Honchc. Unfortuna- tely for Stu as the wing is to lift, hardwork is to eyestrain so it ' s likely to be the backseat of a Tomcat instead. Dave, who was called Bill for nearly three years by his favorite Marine, came to the Naval Academy from Manassas. Virginia simply to learn why ships float. To answer his question completely, he resigned himself to Naval Architecture. He managed to make it through those four years of thrills and frills by taking frequent excursions to a place called euphoria, and to Grandmother B s home for the tired and disillusioned. Yes. it was good old H ' burg. where men are men. Skip Castro is the greatest, and the recreation is plentiful, along with countless wee- kends with the Sale clan, that kept him going. When Dave wasn ' t avoiding the Parade season by running track, or sailing yawls, he could be found dangling off a mountain on a rope, or running through a cave. In order to become mobile. Dave bought a MGB that was shades of blue. tan. and white. But after all is through, it would be Dave to say " Work too hard, pisy much too hard, and remember, you ' ve got to love iti " Artan affectionately known as " arly " to his friends, came to USNA via the marine military academy, marion institute, and his home town of Trenton. N.J. After he walked through the grand high gates of the " big A " . Arlan used every resource within his grasps to ensure that we was going to stay. A four year success story in itself, the " Rhomboid " survived J AC Boards, and ventured into nine different sports. AHan kept us all entertained with some of the most pro-found statements every heard by mankind. " I was attacked by a unanimous woman " , and " t don ' t know whether to — — or wind my watch? " were some of the highlights. But if it wasn ' t his articulate use of the king ' s language, it was his sense of humor that always kept us loose. Either way. the " confurer " has surely left his mark at USNA. As he enters the " real world " we do know that he wilt bring vitality and sincerity along with him which surely wlM be a happy ending. We wish him the best of everything. Joe came to USNA from the sunny, smog filled streets of Rlalto. California. After surviving Plebe Summer, he found Ac Year more of a challenge, playing water polo and receiving intimate instruction in the Admin Conduct System. After B.D.. Joe found time to be head statistician for the hockey team and to " Dee Jay " at WRNV. Youngster Cruise found him in Hong Kong. Subic Bay. and Typhoon Agnes. 3 C year Joe saw the light of PHY SCI. and soon had enough time to join the Bridge Club. He also continued in his conduct instruction, hacking it as a member of the ' Infamous SC ' . Second class year went fast, and l C Cruise found Joe on the " Star ship KAZOO " , visiting the countries of Spain. Italy, and Israel. First class year ironically found Joe as the Company Conduct Officer. Pre- sident of the Bridge Club, and a member of the USNA Executive Concert Committee. Service Assign- ment didn ' t worry Joe. being Surface Line all the way. For him we wish fair winds and calm seas, and a fast ship so he can sail out of harm ' s way. ' ' - ••JOHN " JOHN E.

Ml HHS , lt ' 7o in came tc the boat school ready to meet the challenges ahead. Little did he know that marching would be his greatest nemesis. Plebe summer John found himself quite adept at alerting the whole wardroom to an " incoming " tray of food. John was an academic star from the first class of that first semester. He put his potential to the test by choosing BE as his major. Youngster year he learned the realities of the oil crisis, midnight oil that is. Although he studied with unsurpassed diligence, John also found the time for other things fn life. He had a 6 foot camera lens, a lO.CW lbs. stereo, and a truck that could get to 55MPH quicker than you could check your life insurance. John could be counted on to help plan a super weekend. Skiing, biking, sailing, basketball, hopping on MAC. John was always eager. His hard work and dedication led him to be the alpha company commander and the brigade adjutant first class year. Fair winds and following seas are in order for this fine man. Ted came to the Academy from the booming metropolis of BurrillvHle. R.I. as a skinny, naive kid. But from that first moment when he led us in plebe summer spirit songs, we knew that Ted was a front runner. During plebe year " The Infamous W.E. " made the ice hockey team, and from then on things began to click. Youngster year brought his second year of hockey, a year as Managing Editor of The Log. and a new girl named L ynda. who would be with him the rest of his Academy days. Things picked up even more during second class year as Ted became Editor-in-Chief of The Log. During his little free time Ted could be found racing around in hit blue MOB with the top down and employ- ing his famous naval saying. " One hand for the wheel, one hand for the beer! " As unbelievable as it may seem, first class year became more hectic as Ted was named Captain of the hockey team. But despite these duties, we will always remember Ted for his hard work and sense of humor. We wish him well Dave, or " Chic " , as he was affectionately known, spent most of his career at the Naval Academy in striped running shorts going from one place to another at six minute a mile or better. Running was his life until he bought a bright red Spitfire. It took most of his time just trying to keep the thing on the road. Chic, a Maryland boy. hved Maryland girls. He had many steady girlfriernis, one right after the other Because he lived so close. Dave ' s parents became the parents of many of the class of ' SI from first company. Chic was always ready for a party and never failed to remember what happened during those bashes, even if someorre had to og his memory now and then. A career in the Corps lies ahead for Chic ar d we ' re sure that nothing wiH stand in his way. Spike IS the first girl to make it down the four year path in first company. Those of us who ' ve followed her career since plebe summer, when she serenaded the squad with an original rendition of the theme from Rocky, can truly say they ' ve wit- nessed a success story. She would tell you there is nothing like parachute jumping, unless it might be spiking a volleyball to the ten foot line. Her expertise in both is seen through her gold wings and captaincy. Unlike the typical " jock ' ster- eotype, however. Susan has seen enough 4.0 ' s to make a normal person light-headed. L ook ing o ver her record. Admiral Rickover would probably consider opening the nuclear program to women. Though the Marines want her. surface line will get her. As that community will soon find out. it IS getting quite a bit of officer potential, and Susan will give one hundred percent in trying to fulfill it. She doesn ' t know any other way.

FL EME Butch made his first trek to the civilized northern world with more bewilderment on his face than grits in his pocket. However, as time wore on the bewilderment was soon overcome and gave way to mere frustration when he realized that this place was not exactly like the way it appeared m the pictures in the Navy catalogue. He did eventually realize that there was something to this place besides green roofs and cold rooms such as lending all of his Waylon and Willie collection to various individuals too ashamed to be seen buying them in public. An aspiring med student. Butch elected to take on Chemistry as a ma or. Rnd a ma or undertaking it was. Unfortunately, certain higher ups felt that his knowledge of atoms, electrons, and reactions would be of much better use in other areas of study rather than the medical protes sion. Thanks HGR. However, if Butch plays his cards right, things will work out in the end -— maybe. DJ came to us from Denver. Colorado and took little time to establish himself as an all-around great guy. Doug coasted through his first t wo years with no maior problems. Doug amazed us all during 2 c year as he appeared in his beloved " B ' and cruised his way to the supt ' s list. DJ started his I c year with a bang as he departed toward the orient on his Westpac pleasure cruise, before returning to USNA as a plebesitter during the summer. Doug was feared by the plebes with the exception of the DEBODE $4 model. DJ was shocked out of his l c syndrome by a friendly letter from ADM. Rickover. However. DJ man- aged to smile his way through hit nuke experience and is planning hit stay in the NAVY as a NEC. Doug will be remembered as a great friend and classmate of us all. We know that Doug will be a success at whatever he does. When Bob traveted to the Naval Academy from Connesut. Ohio, he was prepared to study the grueling Mecfianical Engineering curriculum which he successfully completed. He was involved in a number of ECA ' s inckiding Lucky Bag. ASA4E. ASNE. SAE. Car Club and the Log. Deciding that hard work and nuclear power was not the best route to success, he became a member of the First company Men ' s Club as Mr. Assistant Vice in charge of Manly Activities. Bob hopes to head towards Pensacola after graduation to start a career as an NEO. Kenny came to us from Astronaut High School in the action packed(?) town of Titusville. Florida. He started out a partier — where ever the boys from Fun One went. Kenny would be there. All that changed second class year, not because he lost the motivation to party, but because he fell for a girl from neighboring Virginia (a iSMU sorority type). We didn ' t even ask Kenny where he was going on weekends: most of us knew. Because of this " tied down " feeling (and the rising cost of road trips to Falls Church. Va. ) Kenny traded in his other love — a 7 Camaro — for a Volkswagon Rabbit (Planning on settling down anytime soon. Ken?) First class cruise lead Kenny to submarines, where he decided he belonged. He became obsessed with submarines. If you got Kenny in a corner all he could talk about was subs, or Alabama football and the " BEAR " (or Missy). We all wish Kenny luck in the future, even if he doesn ' t ever see the sun. " liBI i ' L ■VINNIE- VINCENT T. HARTMAN CINCINNATI. OH EME •EC- ERIC C. HOPKINS GREENWOOD. ID ESP •GERRY ' - GERALD E.

Vinnie. in a fit of passion, lost 40 lbs. youngster year to play football. He became the starting offensive tackle on the ISO team. His play earned him an All-League selection his 2nd class year A slip disc forced him to retire to the sidelines as an assistant coach his 1st class year Pat. Tom and family were alwa vs an inspiring force to Vince especially in times of question. And then came Jenny. Quatts and Murph were very hesitant on his long distance relationship, only to be stifled by two letters a day and frequent visits. He had to put a ring on her finger not to let her get away. Who would ever believe that Hut and Vinnie two friends as close as brothers would leave the Academy as brothers-in-law. Vinnie ' s back forced him to go restricted line but wherever he goes he ' ll always be with Jenny Then there were 3 Ouatts. Vinnie and Murph. Separately they came, together they left, forever they ' ll be. Eric IS an enigma to many of his classmates. On the one hand, here is a guy whose path to Nimitz was well worn and beaten, a guy. who after four years is still trying to tell which gate IS Gate I. which is Gate 3. and which IS Gate 8. because he rarely used any of them. He is a guy who took a perverse pleasure in signing up for Saturday evening meals after a tough day doing fluids problems. On the other hand. Eric was a front row participant in the Dirty Thirty his youngster year wrestling bouts with real men were legendary, not to mention fevered and high pitchedi and his leave periods were sufficient ly exciting enough to get him engaged to a hometown sweetheart What she and the Nuclear force will find out is that Eric Hopkins is a) a good friend, b) a hard worker, c) a closet wit, dl all of the above. Jerry came to us as a Jl year old plebe with amazing stories from his three years in the Marine Corps and IS years in Brockton. ( " I knew this guy . . . " }. He immediately established himself as a company socialite spending nearly every Saturday night plebe year sneaking a six pack in the bushes three miles away (don ' t worry mothers he wasn ' t alone). Jerry has always been the first one out on weekends and the last one back. Bui those of us who knew him well will never forget the Jerry Horton logic which continually kept us on our toes The end of second class year saw Jerry finally split up with one of his old high school sweetheart a Pontiac Lemans- He traded crass for class and picked up a classie Mustang converti- ble. We ' ll remember Jerry for his innate ability to smell out a fishy situation or talking his way out of just about anything. On Graduation Pay Jerry will go back to the Marines, good luck in the future. Wes came to the Academy via Newport. Rhode Island- He started in ME. but decided that ft wasn t cricket so he later transferred to management- Sporting an old Datsun roadster, capable of ICCMPH. es left us all without words when he led us on countless Second Class road trips at speeds in excess of J " MPH. And It was that same year that Wes hung up those magic spikes that had for years enabled him leap into unoc- cupied racks, none higher than six feet, to later begin moving weights in Halsev- Wes was a forerunner of the First Company Men ' s Club. During his First Class year he surmounted to the clubs highest honor — Vice President. If It wasn ' t for IOw-40 motor oil. Skip Castro. The Boss, being set up with all sorts of girls, and for manly activities, he may have been lost to some ole Datsun warehouse in New Jersey. But he made it. carrying forever those great days at Navy in his back pocket. i ■JOE- THOMAS J. LYNCH McCOMB. MS FPS •RICK " RICHARD F. MARSH ALPENA. Ml SPH •MAC JOHN A. McCANDLISH GARDEN GROVE.

Jeff ' s Service " Assignment " is still up in the air but wherever the Navy sends him. his wife, and his " 12 " kids we know he will do well! It ' s hard to imagine just exactly what brought Jeff to the sfwres of the Severn, but a likely assumption is that someone tried to tell that St. Louis boy that somewhere in the world someth- ing called oceans existed. Naturally Jeff disagreed, and set out to prove that person wrong. After four years at Navy. Jeff is still looking for some kkyphole in the creation of the earth or some twist in the theory of Relativity to prove that oceans do rtot really exist so that Jeff won ' t have to admit he was wrong. Jeff has enjoyed his years at USNA, nowhere else could he study so much and argue so much. He became so mechanically efficient at these activities that by first class year Up-pup and Bead found time to run in a marathon. (Time will tell Jeffl).

He worked hard plebe and youngster year keeping his grades up and saw many a sunrise over the Severn. Then came Cecilia. After that, his only objective was to keep SA T for the weekend so he could follow the well-worn rut to Bethesda.

Life is not always sailing, for in his spare time he dabbles in Ocean Engineering and is an avid sleep researcher WHEN THE river freezes over you can find him ripping limbs off his fellow mids in front of a fiefdball crease. Joe also loves having his clothes ripped off by his " mother " after they ve had a httie Cold Duck. If you see Joe in the hall. you migh t just ask him if he ' s had any trouble using his boat for extracur- ricular activities lately. Bill went through many changes while at the Academy. First of all. he traded in his buck sergeant ' s stripes for a set of second Lieutenant ' s bars (once green, always green). He entered the Academy with two girls with the title of " finance " , but as a firstie could not even find a date for Homecoming. His monetary resources went from abundant to virtually nonexistent (a certain Porsche 924 may t e to blame). Some things, however, just stay the same, such as his favorite saying. " Pass me another beer, please. " which he repeats twenty or thirty times a day. when possible, of course. Also, his loathing of the " thrill " of athletic competition has dissipated very little over the past four years. His favorite time to study still remains from one to four in the morning. Oh. well, what can you expect from a guy who collected two " black A ' s " and an E in less than two years. A-7 ' s forever. Dave came to the AcMiemy from Memphis. Tenn. and was found by his friends to be a southern gentleman through and through, saturated with cheerfulness, southern hospitality, and a conviction tftat it was everyone else who spoke with an accent. Dave proved to be one-up on the rest of us when tie demonstrated early that the key to success was to maintain a hw profile. It took all of piebe summer before his roommates even learned wtw f}e was- f w. tftat ' s a kfw profile! In spite of his apparent mild manneredness. there have been some disturbing rumors ctrcuiating about this human enigma.

After getting here however, the need for sleep, the need to party, the lack of ability, an ever present supply of demos and ttie teachers at USMA forced him into an early retirement after one short season. Paul then switched his sights on graduating in the most painless way possible. And painless it was every single weekend and sometimes in between. He maintained his weekend wildness for over three years here until, much to his fellow par tier ' s dismay, he found a Southern belle ' wife ' at everybody ' s favorite college in Northern Maryland. Paul bulled through school on his way to an economics degree, but never let that interfere with outside the gate activities. Paul, always the one to smack up to superiors, kept pace with his roommates in staying in the basement of the company rankings. Nevertheless Paul wll rto doubt make a fine naval officer in the real Navy. When Art blew in from Smith- town, New York, he seemed to being a big part of that town with him, . . . Its butt. This was evidenced by some of the loud and boisterous arguments he had with his Plebe Summer roommate. With the arrival of Pfebe Year, however. Art soon adopted a relatively hw profile which lasted until Segundo Year when he bored of the game and started removing stripes from the First Class. Art ' s lack of wheels put a damper on his amorous activities throughout his years here, but we hope that his elusive perfect girl eventually finds him.

Lets see. there was the Navigators, the Navigators, and the Navigators. He became so involved in the Navs that his parents soon had him listed as MIA {Really Scott, four years without a letter?).

' It took some time for Paul to " Get his act together. " with respect to ' Life in the Big City. " but now that the transition IS almost complete, the great strides that he has made are readily apparent. He has changed from a young man that wasn ' t very sure of himself into an individual that anyone would be proud to serve with.

Pete came to us from WiMingboro. New Joisey — where people care. Pete decided to come to USNA because of the exceMent educational and job opportunities — but mostly because USNA was the only " cotfege " acceptance deadline that hadn ' t passed. He left his mark on USNA by participating in DiB. Pep Band, and Trident Brass. He left his mark on Frank Pitelli by almost strangling him. Pete really found himself when he bought a 1970 firebird. Two years and four coats of primer later, his dream car IS almost completed. Pete always seemed to have more hiCk with the fairer sex than the rest of us.

" leaving a trail of broken hearts and beer bottles all over the state of Maryland. However, by first Class Year. Don settled down to a couple of steady girlfriends at various locations on the east coast of the US. from New York to florida. Don has always been known for his fine all around athletic ability, his love of good rock ' nroll, and for the " Marrin Factor " (X minutes that you add to the time Don says he will be somewhere).

In spite of these factors, we all held a deep respect for Damacene. The respect grew during our years, not because of the frequent ctiow packages from ' the A dmiral ' ' . but because of the way he accepted by far the longest and farthest separa- tions from home and family of any of us with silent resolve.

Gary found some favorite targets for his verbal warfare especially room- mates and a certain e -Marine. Gary started out as an aspiring young math ma or but he quickly began to see the light and by second class year took the big step up to phy sci. After some uneventful trips to Hood. Gary, alias Scary alias MA. Rascona. met the future Mrs. M.A. Rascona at the Ring Dance. Gary served on Batt staff for Plebe Detail (at the Linthicum branch of USNA ) and by the end of the summer, another one bit the dust. As we pass through first class year.

Skarph was famous for a tight squad, much rack lespecially during P-rades). the white Tr-l. Ray-bans, and the progressive duty section. A leeter from Uncle Hymie decided his future of lack of sunlight and mutant children, rather than the smell of victory from A- ' s overchina. The company was richer for having such an intelligent and genuinely friendly individual as Scriv with u$. When Cathy arrived at USNA fyer easy going manner made her a standout. Of course, the red hair didn ' t hurt any. Just ask any future mega-stnpper on any youngster ladder. Plebe year saw Cathy making a big hit in women ' s basketball. Such a hit that she became the track team ' s shot putter. When it became time to choice a major Cathy saw that the academy was an engineering school so she picked Political Science She has always been a mid to do her own thing. And she does those things well. Her ability to party hardy was legendary throughout youngster year and second class summer. As tfie infamous C.T. FLAMER. she terrorized the class of ' 83 But if it was C.T. FLAMER during the week, it was just plain Cath on the weekends as stie tried to put as many miles between herself and the Hall. She had tier brother Jack move to D.C. so she ' d have a place to go. As the only surviving female of SI of 5th. Cathy has been a marvelous friend to whom we wish the best of luck. Scott marched through the gates of USNA after 18 year as an Air Force brat. He was rudely introduced to the difference between the Air Force and the navy when he sat in Mr. Tracy ' s chair and asked for a trim. After recovering from this traumatic exper- ience, he had little trouble with plebe summer. When Ac Year arrived, he was faced with a decision for the first time in J months, what to major in? He emulated his favorite firstie and chose Chemistry. Scott professed to have a bit of trouble with Physical Chem. but the Chemistry he used on the heal cuties was a thing of beauty. He obviously exaggerated his prob- lems. After devoting 2 years to ISO ' s and jumping out of perfectly good airplanes, tie decided to spread his talents around and became a cfieer- leader. Scott possessed the uncanny knack of finding value in other people ' s throwaways and soon fur- nished his room with all the comforts of home. As our days pass by. we will always remember Scott as a fine man whose infectious spirit brought smiles to us all. Robert Ware entered the United States Naval Academy with some set ideas on the way things should be done. He quickly found that he had to abandon some his his " Bob Ware " standards and adopt those of this great institution. Fortunately, his true nature remained and slowly reap- peared as his rights were given back to him " one at a time. " Being a difficult person to categorize. Robert was often perceived the wrong way. Contrary to popular belief, he does not regret the sacrifices called upon by the Naval Academy, though there are not many people as anxious to age four years.

In the spring, the boys tried the exciting sport of SCUBA diving. As usual, it was too exciting as their 1st dive was almost their last.

The innovator of Pelsky. he gave it a good try. but. the Worms and the Morons were too prepared. Christmas had that certain special ring to it. Brett also moved up from playing Trivia to doing it. 2nd class year saw BAP and his Red Roadster make many an Annapolis-Newark run of all of those extra long weekends for. you guessed it. that certain fair haired lass. That year also saw him go through four roommates and $10,000 in jewelry. In retrospect, the year was quite boring. He ended up in the Barn where he exterminated all known ant life.

Dave took the big plunge with 2 C year but this didn ' t matter for Dave always had " Yane " to look at stars with him.

MIKE- MICHAEL K. SHIELDS BOWIE. MD EEE " SKO " Shieldsy came to USNA from Rota. Spain as a Navy flyboy-to-be. He was awkward, gangly, and only slightly coordinated. We were sure 4 years of tough Academy life wuld change all that. We were wrong. He survived plebe year without much damage and dove into youngster life with gusto. Housekeeping was never one of his strong points. The room often resembled a sanitary landfill or an empty lot in the South Bronx. His favorite ECA was the military para- chute club. He survived 35 jumps. Academics went well for the young EE major. His best transistor work often went until 0300. But the EE dept. could not push him past breakdown voltage and he entered 1st class year with IC ' s for reflexes, LED ' s for eyes, and a microprocessor for a heart. Speaking of hearts.

He distinguished himself plebe year by physically abusing his red-haired roommate and was widely known for his geekish tendencies. He soon became an engineer but roomed with bull majors and conduct cases, and it is rumoured that he even started reading BASS magazine. He grew out of all this second class year, and in his spare time would entice young maidens into visiting him until he found fairer game. He developed a penchant for those of Germanic origin, and would enact his wildest fantasies when his sister was not around.

Bill " the Geek " Lewis, the man in the class most changed by Naval Academy L ife. From the thriving metropolis of " Hicksville " . West Virginia. Bill came to USNA as the idealmid: never drank, studied all night, and wanted to be a Nuke. Wett. that was taken care of pretty quick. A Iter three years of training, his favorite pastime is going out and getting wasted, he only studies when his other priorities are met (watching TV and making popcorn), and he is even considering failing a course to avoid the nuclear power draft. Bill is a fine example of Naval Academy training. On the morning of 3 July. 1977. Kirk S. L ippotd first set his eyes on the k w lands of Maryland as the hatch broke open on the transcontinental airliner. As he made his way to his appointed destiny, little did he know he would bring so much with him. Ahng with him came a new pronucia- tion of the noun ' N-F-V-A-D-A " . Kirk proved to be one not to be daunted by the minor set backs. He never let his choice of a mechanical engineer- ing and Rocket Reed bother him. No. he fust switched majors. Kirk found a fascination with jumping out of perfectly good airplanes. He was so dedicated to this form of pleasure that he went on to become a jumpmaster and even served a tour as president of the military jump chb. Despite all this. Kirk wiK always be best known for his exemplsry leader- ship style within the company. With people like him. the ideals which represent U.S.N.A. wit never die. It goes without saying that everyone wishes Kirk the best of everything. Backhanded to us from the state of Oregon. Craig Morrison came to USNA with visions of wild East coast women and dreams of Wimbledon. To this day. Craig has scrimmaged with these hopes, but has not yet estab- lished himself as a true competitior in either sportsl All seriousness aside, from his growth as a bilge to his present company commander posi- tion. Craig has contributed immensely to USNA. His success both on the courts, which include a role as captain and NCAA play, and off. as company commander, epitomizes Craig ' s " Whole Man " character.

Much of his free time was taken up by this activity, but it did not deter him from hit goal to fly up in the big blue sky. Mark ' s background in the Aero- space Engineering program will defini- tely be of use to him since fye has to many air and space ideas floating around in his head.

He even passed up a scholarship to USC in order to come to Canoe U. He was, to say the least, disappointed. Jose found that he needed a few things before he could really make it at USSA. The first thing he needed was a haircut ■ and he ' s needed one ever since. The next thing he needed was a varsity letter. Atid get one he did. A Black N ' he won, varsity performance at its finest, indeed. Jose also distinguished him- self in the much vaunted " horizontal workout. " Jose was unparalleled in sleeping ability.

Plebe year was rewarding With rates and good grades putting her into the ranks of the geeks. But Mary had her fun too. as BACHopKep along with Cookie, the Raisin King and her mysterious Satirday night excur- sions with Sara.

With a pair of BOSe 501s and a system worthy of these, Giff could balsi with the best of them. Be it Lynard Skynard, CDB or ILO. Giff felt ever obliged to let the whole shaft share in his listening pleasure. Never one for wasted effort, Giff wasted very little on studies. His philosophy on homework was apt. " Never do today that which can be put off til the night before. " " One was more likely to find a Louis L " Amour or an IKB in his hands than a textbook. To Giff the most important aspect of Academy life was the weekend While for some weekends were made for Mich, to Giff weekends were made for Mepps . . . and a JC trout.

Bish is a good friend who I fyope to keep in touch with. Mark Roy came from the dry wastelands of Arizona to Annapolis, where the skies are cloudy all day. He was ranked first during Plebe Summer, but gradually found his groove arid made the best of the " halo effect. " Though recruited for his football prowess. Mark soon found that life as a musician left little time for varsity athletics. So he became a rock star in such spots as Disco Dahlgren and Hood College. No one every accused Roy of being " married, " probably because we couldn ' t be sure of how close to the truth it would be. As a Firstie it soon became obvious that Mark was seeing more of Donna than he was of his management books. He did occasion- ally stop in ttie company area to change clothes, fwwever. His little one.

Reel it in Buddy. Dave has been a resident of Crabtown most of his life, so going off to college was just a jaunt across town. Yet despite the nearness of " fyome. " Dave always had a serious attitude about everything — especial- ly when a job needed doing. He often volunteered to do the jobs no one else wanted, particularly during leave or holidays when everyone else went to a more distant home. Dave gave the company a sense of professionalism, which at times went against the grain of " mellow Eight. " He was in particular the scourge of many plebes. and It was no trick of fate that he was one of the first to be " escorted " to pep rallies. Yet Dave took it all in stride and came back with a stack of Form 2 ' s (which he never actually usedl). Notorious as the " No shoes! " wardroom officer. Dave also created many of the stages in Mahan Hall for the Masqueraders and the Glee Club. Dave conquered his academics, and as a narc he will most likely be an airdale flying under the waves.

He aspired to be a fireman when he was little but as fate would have it. Dogger (as he IS affectionately known to the boys of 8th Co.). came to be the captain of the sailing team. Wtth the pressures of rigorous military and academic schedules. Dogger sought for an outlet - 4 years of 3 ■ stripper libs, which he took full advantage of. He was always seen at least twice a week in the company and for the most part was a ghostly inhabitant in Bancroft, sailing aound with his saihng team- mates. As Minnesota Fats is to pool. Dogger was to darts, as is evidenced by the holes he left in his walls, which Gary never found. We though we were rid of the Dead Heads when Lennie left, but soon discovered that they lived on in Dogger ' s tape deck. He sailed in. sailed around and sailed out. Sail on. Dave, and good luck with Surface Line. Michael J. Sherhck earned on the Bud Thompson image in eighth company complete with white works. Jackson Browne, and that un-written chit for four years for three striper Libs. Although his two roommates didn ' t do much for his ball player image. Mike ' s positive influence saved the two would-be geeks from academic suicide. While ascribing to high leadership positions. Sherles took command as the leader of the Squirrels. YP Commadore for a week, and the keeper of the Kelleroid. Yet at heart. Mike always loved stuff- 3-rack. fifteen year old girls, and cheerleaders whose names he never could remember. Second ciss year. Mike became Bob ' s Boy with fog- cutter in hand and a roommate ' s girl who loved to throw expensive drinks. Mike must have traded in all his class uniforms to buy his vette. for we very seldom saw him don the Navy Blue unless of course it was for George. Mike will undoubtedly be remembered most for his gifted abilities as a baK player and that incredible Sherlock smile. John " A. H. " Snevely hails from Costa Mesa. Cai. home of beaches and blonds. He brought with him a teddy-bear smile, a skateboard, and a charming charisma . . . we would have preferred the beaches and bk nds.

He majored in Rock and Rotl. and many officers came by to discuss his stereo. Yet e ven through varsity restriction, he was " Hey. just too hip. " When he first arrived at USNA. P.C. had set lofty goals for himself By the time he left they had been lowered considerably, giving way to more important considerations such as rack time. To this end he chose a nice safe major in Political Science. While generally conceded he should have gone to the German Naval Academy. His Wisconsin temper- ament stood him well in everyting he did. A possible exception was Brigade Boxing, which he managed to win in spite of being mellow. Still, not everything here agreed with him. his roommate played the stereo much too loud and one summer he had such a good time he extended his leave. He was always a master at getting out of things. Many clubs held his interest because they had lunchtime meetings and he managed to get out of drill for three semesters. He will be remem- bered as a quiet guy who got things done (better late than never) and was well-liked, especially by his German prof. 8 r-tm NINTH COMPANY mm f Pll h ' ■ r » bi Mb ' ! 1— — .

Not one to waste time, this good oie boy out of the backwoods of Indiana established a reputation of being able to clear the wardroom in seconds. The man was talented. Wayne was older than most of us and the protrusion above his belt was testimony to that. The adminis- tration seriously considered separat- ing him for violation of the regulation concerning pregnancy. There were times when we thought he was surely in labor only to find him in the rack snoring the lullaby that was his theme song. As first class year arrived Wayne experienced some new adven- tures. He bought the truck of his dreams and marched for the first time since Parents ' Open House Weekend. Wayne kept us all smiling with his uncanny ability to remember every joke written in recorded history. We will best remember Wayne for his magic sense of humor and athletic prowess. We will sincere- ly miss the enjoyment he brought us all Tom made that short drive from the Eastern shore to join us plebe summer and didn ' t waste any time in finding his groove, somewhere between the shelves of his locker. In fact, evasion tactics were his strengths, and plebe summer he even successfully arranged a special demonstration illustrating the many ways of avoiding an enraged New Yorker and fixed bayonet As the youngest in the company Tom was quite impressionable and it wasn ' t until his youngester year that his true colors showed through. Ma oring in his rack with a minor in operations analysis Tom decided that k ud music, girls, and beer were what made life worth getting up for.

We ' re all sure Mac will make a great submarine CO. some day. Matt dug himself out of the Maine snows and headed South expecting four years of fun and sun. Plebe year and BUZZ however, proved a rude aw akening. Matt found solace. though, in soccer and h is " little red book " . and became known for his different views on professionalism. Youngster year brought Statics and the struggle for grades. It also saw entrance into the wardroom, where Matt spent many an hour. Second class year returned Matt to the Company fold, where he could devote himself to his two favorite pastimes, eating and sleeping and much he did of both. As a firstie. Matt became one of tfte ' Lords of the Ring " with the power to conjure birtfyday parties white in the O-Club. Meanwhile, the struggle continued. but Matt triumphed in the end. and left Annapolis just as he arrived, with not a care in the world. Ben was roused out of a siesta on an obscure dirt road in Mexico and this is where he ' ll no doubt return. Upon arriving at USNA.

Not all was tequila and tacos though, as Ben quicklv succumbed to the temptations of the " terv " and his OPR showed it. Youngster year found Ben in another " engineering " maior and introduced to a girl named " Val " . What can you say about her that hasn ' t already been done ? Ben played with a rock band for fun. He also tried his hand at boxing. If only he had been allowed to use his guitar as a club in the ring, he might not be the babbling idiot he is today from all those blows to the head.

Since Bill chose to study in the demanding English department major. he was forced to spend many hours of B.I. in the rack analyzing Shake speare and Poe. When weekends became a part of his vocabulary. females replaced the rack. If Bill was not hitting and hunting that elusive white sphere, he was showing his talents to the women. He had uncanny success in this area, his ego made sure of that. Graduation will send Bill to P-cola and Navy Air. Hopefully his friends will be enjoying the sun with him. Best of luck Bill Oscar came aboard USNA after a year of traumatic experiences at a typical " California " college where he learned just how liberal a liberal arts education can be.

Rich came to us from the land of Springsteen, the Phillies, and Scmidt ' s beer and to this day no one reaUy knows why. The popular belief is that he came to his senses and decided to. in the words of the B-52 ' s. " Get out of that state. " but this view is inconsistent with Rich ' s fanatical sense of loyalty to the Jersey area. As a plebe soccer stud Rich literally got all the breaks he could handle, the most dramatic of which was the leg break that ended his incredibly average career. Youngster year saw the origin of " The Moustache " i no facial hair but what can only be described as a pre-punk hairdo. Rich kept most of us in the dark about his Poli-Sci maior by taking an extraordin- ary number of Wires courses, but it was revealed that these were simply the same course taken repeatedly. He has also developed a promising future as. " fair enough?. ' Tom Snyder ' s stand-in for the Tomorrow Show. The Hall won ' t be the same witftout Rich, but the administration finally decided that they needed a well-deserved rest. Dave came to USNA from the steel mill town of BetNehem Pa. His first year here was fairly qutet with most of his time being devoted to studying. With the end of ptebe year Dave became more outgoing. At one post-game tailgater Dave was given the nickname CHOPPER which has stuck with him to this day. During his 3 c year CHOP made his first daring trip out gate and ahc experienced a roadtrip to the Navy - Hopkins LAX game. Dave ' s 2 c year didn ' t go so well. He had 3 operations within 6 months. Because of his strong wiM and per verance CHOPPER reco vered quickly from his ilh and was soon back in the pod showing off for aM the girls. Dave began his I c summer on the USS INDEPENDENCE and was one of the few midn. to get a CAT lauch as well as a night trap. In this year CHOPPER had many interesting experiences.

While the rest of us were loading up the road sodas and heading off to Hood for the weekend. Mike could always be found glued to his books. All this changed during Commissioning Week as a 2 c.

Putting his wild love life aside. Mike dedicat- ed his afternoons to the Navy squash team and his nights to book reviews and term papers.

Good luck to you Mike, we know you ' ll do well! Greg ' SPUD " Billy, as 12th Go ' s last surviving Mech-E. would very much like to thank USNA for its time. He only hopes that we will be able to pay back all fSO.OOO in the same manner in which it was received. Tim. the Romeo of Baltimore, knew that his life was in for a complete turn-around when he heard the gates clang shut on 1-day. Well, almost a complete turn-around. He managed to spend Saturdays at home with his girl and " Chapin music " through plebe year, and even had a better time after he talked the Dant into doing away with Saturday evening formations. Tim drifted through 2nd ird class years, maintaining his typical tow profile and cynical outlook while keeping just ahead of the Ac-Board. He then acquired an MG Midget and began to terrorize the streets of Baltimore and Annapolis. Nobody needed to worry about getting hit through — you could hear Jethro Tull blasting from a mile away! ( The music of TuM strikes fear in the hearts of his neighbors to this day). First-class year in the Ghetto didn ' t turn out as Tim expected, so he began to do strange things like getting Form-3 ' s — and getting drunk. But. he plans to escape from it all by going Navy Air. So if you ' re in the air and hear Jethro Tull approaching WATCH OUT! Hatched in Seattle. Washington. Steve was not " all Navy " from the start. Not aspiring to be a ship-driver, little Stevie dreamed of exerting his benevolence by precipitating a revolu- tion in an obscure South American republic and setting himself up as dictator. However, under the in- fluence of his Navy father (and the cat of nine-tails), he decided that it might be healthier to join (at least temporarily) the service. The result of this decision was a scholarship to William and Mary University as a NROTC midshipman. But this status did not give Steve absolute power over his fellow man. Consequently, he applied to USNA and was accepted. During his stay. Steve became self-actualized. He could exercise his rule with impunity and rehearse for that day when he could dictate terms to his own country. L ittle Castro practiced his appearance at Quanticoi he learned how real revolutions were done in Chile on FOREX, he even chose political science as his major. Upon graduation. Steve plans to apply for exchange duty to Bolivia. 12 •MIKE ' MICHAEL D. CHRISTOPHER BEEVILLE. TX EEC •DICK- RICHARD CROWELL WESTPORT. CT EGE •TIM " TIMOTHY A. DISHER FAIRFAX.

One can only assume that all that hard work wore poor Dick out. His skillful working abilities always enabled him to do lust the right amount of work to accomplish the job. Dick ' s biggest accomplishment here has been his successful courting of a lovely young lady from Baltimore, whom he loves almost as much as his rack and good food.

His accomplishments include crowning the flagpole in T-court with a hat. destroying countless numbers of his chemistry labs, and killing millions of his fellow chemistry ma ors. However, most of his time has been occupied by his fiance. Carol Sharpe. Engaged since 25 Nov of his youngster year, he has been the brunt of many " parties " and much great fun. Taken in his normal good humor, he has never let any of us down. Though well liked. Rex is a strong competitor and IS highly respected and proficient.

Two years later, after having scored his token goal for Navy. his attention turned towards a brand new Datsun 280-ZX party car.

" Service selection is Infantry. Right. Mr. Severino? " As a member of DiB Sev was extremely adept and was seen playing bugle, drums, xyhphoeie and carrying the guideon.

Youngster year brought possibilities of an affair with the librarian. With a 3.8 CQPR it must have been a challenge. After a brief encounter with tequila, this human F 14 decided he wanted to fly again. Unfortunately his eyes didn ' t hold up and Navy air lost a good one. But all of Ken ' s hard work reaped their reward first class year. Ken shoul- dered a lot of gold on Brigade staff but never let it affect his personality. Ken has really hotenedup these days. Weekends usually find him winging his way north on 301 in his black and orange tercel, going to see his FILL Y in PHILL Y. Whether Ken is flying in his tercel, a ship, or a sub. he always has his afterburners on and we know he ' ll tear up the fleet. When Pete made the long voyage from Clifton. Va.. he had tome surprises in store for him. The first was that the baseball team didn ' t want him. So. Pete gave up on athletics and joined the pistol team. At least his trigger finger got a good workout, and he parlayed his natural coordination into All-American hon- ors. Youngster cruise was a dream vacation in that east coast hotspot. Norfolk. Va.. but his first class cruise to Colombia made up for it. He brought back many mementos of this international experience, and luckily Bancroft Medical was able to cure them all Pete ' s personal standards gained him the respect of most of his classmates, and induced stark terror among the underclass. All through his Academy career, however. Pete ' s driving force has been his love for Jesus Christ, no matter what the academicians and bureaucrats threw in his path.

Being an early boarder of the bandwagon, he jumped right on the G.E. major plebe year and beat all te ex-Mechs to all the good courses. It paid off. Right on top of his pile of things to do (right after soccer season) is an interview with the good Admiral of inner-space. Too bad Bobby is really fond of the Pensacola sun. Everything is secondary to soccer. There is no individual more dedicated to any one thing than Beg ' s is to soccer.

Don spent most of his time on earth with the Drum £ Bugle Corps second only to his rack. Of the time spent with the D $ B. Don claimed to have enjoyed the long road trips especially the bus rides. All his classmates were continually amazed at his ability to unfailingly pick out the youngest girls in any crowd and insist they were old enough. As one of the premier dancers at Dahlgren Don was shocked when one of his partners said his dancing was just " alright " . Also as the sentimentalist of the company he was always willing to help dictate and interpret love letters for anyone who had trouble in that areai but woe to the person who inadvertantly covered up the pictures of Marisa under his blotter. Often times at night he was seen staring at the pictures for hours muttering strange incantations which sounded like " there ' s no place like home, there ' s no place like home " . Many years form now historians will attribute the famous naval saying " Born to Rack " to our man the SHAFE.

Even as a Mechanical Engineer Rob never seemed to have much of a problem with academics, to him everything was trivial He was one of the few to survive both the Rocket and Wild Bill.

Craig was soon shining brass, sewing pockets shut, and playing 150 football during plebe year. The burdens of being a plebe having been lifted. Craig decided to enter the youngster geek mode, so he began burning the midnight oil-often to the dismay of his roommate. However, he discovered that partying had it ' s advantages and dropped from a 3.8 to a 1.8 - so much for good grades. A lover of the finer things in life. Craig bought a Z-J8 and drove fast and far in search of the perfect woman. Or was it to escape the less-than-IO woman? First class year found him skydiving and taking excursions to Hood College as one of the original Face Suckers. Craig looks forward to more " life in the fast lane " as he begms his NFO career. Good tuck Craig. This man is undoubtedly an alien life form which happened to crash land near T- Court on I- day. Blind crippled and crazy from the impact and devastating blast, he staggered into T- Court and later reahzed that this was a far greater catastrophy. In hopes of concealing his true identity, he decided to play along. Only those of us who knew him well could see through this facade. For instance his bionic knee discovered by Dr. Cox. whose memory works like a black hole allowing nothing to escape, and those periods when he seems to meditate but IS really sending SOS signals to the mother ship. His hopes of rescue have diminished now. He has resigned to the fact that he will never see his little star home again. However, always quick to make the best of a bad situation, he has opted to hang up the space suit and don the blue coveralls and sneakers of a submariner. Best wishes to a true professional.

So intense was this man ' s desire for stripes that he once fried himself for breaking a regulation. Disillusioned by being spurned for 6-stripe consideration.

After that, plebe year went by slowly but surety as he learned English a day at a time. But that wasn ' t all he learned. After all. an education at our Academy means learning from the books and we all know how much of an effort Soc put into his academics.

He recovered sufficiently to join the Slob Squad. 18th Company ' s most prestigous professional organ- ization, and en oyed a life blessed by fate. Women seemed to fall out of the sky in front of Ralph, only to pine away in the isolation of nunneries when they realized they could never capture his elusive heart. He also possessed divine protection, evidenced by Friday night treks, not quite-legit activities on duty, and mid-afternoon dips in the Reflection Pool that escaped the wrath of the Admin Conduct system. Blessed as he is. Ralph cannot help but survive in the real world, and his superb repetoire of humor will keep his colleagues laughing along with him. That is his biography, and it belongs to him.

He immediately put his size and strength to use by joining the crew team a masochistic sport which friends tried unsuccessfully to get him to quit every year. Dave ' s original innocence (meaning he rarely drank or went out breaking regs) was completely cured by second class year. In fact, he continually amazed us by being able to converse with other people at the bar long after the rest of his classmates ceased to care. Probably the most amazing thing about Dave was his intelligence. His grades, around 3.0, did not accurately reflect his bril- liance, but many of us felt that this had something to do with the fact that he refused to study. For his effort, or lack thereof, the Naval Academy system rewarded him with three stripes first class year.

Mike never had to travel too far for a fine home- cooked meal or the comforts of home. If he couldn ' t make It by car he always had tfiose old dependable (well, almost dependable) legs to get him home for dinner, a mere 15 mile jog. When you saw him he was either in his Nike Elites heading out for an afternoon trot, or heading for Cheryl ' s house for the weekend. He stopped by the yard now and then for a visit. There was never a mate in the company that didn ' t have to deliver the famous ' Cheryl loves You " notci and if it wasn ' t delivered promptly, he heard about it! With a broken ankle, two knee operations, a couple bruised ribs, a compressed v ertebrate. and two varsity semesters in therapy.

Doug " legally blind " kurtz came to U. of Navy from the tiny hsmiet of Ligonier. PA. near Pittsburgh, which, according to Doug, is the paradise of the modern world. He got off to a great start in academics, earning stars two semesters, then he met Reed and Lee. compliments of the ME dept. Famed throughout the brigade for his stellar appearance and the length of his hair. Doug took pains to be as unmilitary as possible. Even his father noticed hit lack of aptitude for marching, and imitated it rather nicely. After swearing off alcohol forever after a wild night at Hood, things weren t the same arourui here. Fortunately, the (bought didn ' t last too long. His fondness for cheesy sebaceous hamburgers made him well-known at St. John ' s. His expknts and adventures of the roof and ledges (and in secret rooms) of Bancroft showed his incredibly inquisitive nature. Someday Doug will find a girl with similar interests (le.e.. the Steelers and Pirates), and they ' ll live in Ligonier forever. Mike, tired of the annoying dm of those silly Mardi ijras parades left New Orleans to come to the Nav Acad for some peace and quiet and some food other than pralines and filet gumbo. A true Irishman. Mike became a Mech " E " for no special reason other than pure masochism. One of two surviving Mechs in the company. " Meek " proved the theory that ME. IS not career enhancing. Once an aspiring Nuke. Mike saw the light and now has no idea as to his service " assignment " . He was deep selected to squad leader second class year, a responsibility he fulfilled with dedica- tion, expertise, and strained vocal cords. A newly born runner. Mike ran in the Natural Lite sponsored fOmile run because someone told him he would get a free beer at the end. Many of his classmates do not totally understand Mike (nor does hel). but his southern belle seems to. and that ' s all that counts. With his happy- go-lucky Irish charm.

Barry was sure that he was stepping into a life of glamour, fast college living, and uniforms that would have women flocking to him. Welt, at least he got the uniforms. The fact that he was 6 ' 5 ' led everyone to think that maybe fye played basketball, and sure enough he kept playing until he became the star of the company basketball team I c year. Barry was not only a fine bask etball pla yer. but also stellar baseball player on the tables. When he chose to major in systems engineer- ing, everyone was sure that he ' d never be seen again on the weekends.

Determined to gain an appoint- ment to Navy, Joe enlisted and then made a quick stop at NAPS for some high school post graduate work. Hailing from Pittsburgh. Pa.. Joe soon found academics to be one of his greatest strengths, unfortunately something that cannot be said about his P.E. tests. This earned him his reputation in the company as condi- tioning squad captian. Majoring in aerospace, Joe spent many long hours between " cancer sticks " doing prob- lems in dynamics, thermo. and cables. Many times, he had only wished he had gone the " easy route " with political science like his roommate. Nevertheless, the BMOC was always quick to help others with their homework. Afternoons.

Bill did not expect to owe a military obligation but just came to get a free M.E. degree and open his own consulting firm. The good friends found at Canoe U ranged from obnoxious New Yorkers to crazy Californians and many points in between. Constantly chewing Skoal and harassing Dahlgren " cut ies " after a little Bud and Black Jack. Bill earned many nicknames among which " Wild Bill " IS the only one fit to print. Bill hved his leave . . . and proved it by wasting his summers in ft. Benning and Coronado. His best times were spent with the boys (including " Woody " , USN, retired) at Chick ies and other Redneck dives. Originally wanting to be a Navy diver, it appears that he will be diving only in subs. Luckily he has a brother at Navy waiting to take over where he left off. Always remember Bill. " The people to watch out for are those who object. " Nelson Peder Moe (Mojack) came from Billings, Montana (did they make that a state yet?) to USNA and asked the obvious question, " Hey, can I please be the walk-on Team Captain for Navy Swimming? " and they said " O.K. " We may never understand what made Nelson lick but he was always there when you needed a hand. Never in a bad mood, he would bend over backwards to give the shirt off his back (or his brand new RX-7 for a weekend) if you needed it. His endless supply of energy on Plebe Detail was directly responsible for M taking first the summer of ' SO. Nelson will be remembered (whether we like it or not) for rigging heads, leading Army-week assaults, shaving down (even his head) twicel Nelson ' s Nasty Nine, " WUBA " calls, diving exhibi- tions (no back-flips, huh Nels?), diagnosing transmission problems, BUD ' S (Brace Up, Don ' t Smile) training,and " Hey Nels, will you pay me and take my duty?

He always gave 1000% attd the Fleet will be glad that he ' s on OUK sidel Mooch came to USNA via NAPS and the great metropolis of Greens- burg, Pa. to study a little and chew a whole lot of tobacco. Plebe year found Joe to be a real hard charger and fuU of navy enthusmsm until he started rooming with one certain " BIG MONEY " Kunti. (who has since been sebrigated from the brigade) The rest of his plebe, youngster, and second class years were devoted to looking after this colorful Greek, who had a tendency to stray from tfye straight and narrow. Mooch was a common sight around the yard, appearing to be busy, while in actuality he did nothing but line Stribling Walk with his own blend of saliva and Copenhagen, first class year found Joe to be the captain of the lightweight football team. Mooch also found that besides being able to play football, he had an uncanny culinary ability and this was deemed business manager of the Greasy Chopstick. Graduation brings no fear for Joe since his avenue is dictated by our Savior Jesus Christ. Pretty Boy Murph, better known to the men of Twenty four as one of the resident jocks, will undoubtedly be inducted into the Bad Boys Hall of fame, because of his association with such derelicts as Dr. Illogical, Tarzan, Rocko, Dusty, Big Wally, and a few select others. That kid Murph came to the boat school with more than his share of Townson cool. To say the least. Joe was never at a loss for words, and always good for a laugh. When not sweating ' (???), over his QPR, you could find Murph sweat in ' it out on the soccer field, or sharing himself with the girls in the local establishments. We hope Joe never forgets the good times and the many close friends he made at this illustrious institution, because we ' ll never forget him. Take care, and good luck Joeyl . . .

Plebe year found Al to be a hard worker and by his first class year he was founder, owner, proprietor, and head cook of the " Greasy Chopstick " — a red-neck eating oint located on 4-3. Al ' s biggest obstacles here at USNA proved to be Navy swimming (and Coach Joe Duff), but he managed to get by — just goes to show that all things are possible for those who believe. The bossman ' s biggest ac- complishments during his stay here at the Academy (besides stuffing Theo ' s overcoat in a desk drawer) include teaching CCD and catching an 8h pound largemouth bass — what do you expect for a guy who liked to drink tea from an empty cup and watch rocks grow? Al had his priorities straight — his first three were Ood the Father. God the Son. and God the Holy Spirit. He will make a welcome addition to the Chaplain Corps. Dean came to us from the northern city of Bridgeport. Conn. From the beginning of his plebe year he got off to a sizzling start by getting placed in the squad of the biggest " flamer " in the company. Somehow hesurvived it all and hit youngster year with a bang. At this time he learned that grades and amount of study time were inversely proportion- al. This started a trend that would last for the ne t three years. " The King " . as he was known, on many a night left his opponents in the dust on the backgammon and cribbage boards. But he still came through with flying colors in the classroom. Dean and the guys will never forget the post -parade get-togethers every Wed. afternoon at the " Little Campus " . He will certainly add much life to the fleet make many friends, and be a fine naval officer. We ' ll sure miss him. Coming to us from the lush, exotic island of Puerto Rico. Dave began his USNA career by receiving Pres. Carter in his (the President ' s old) room, and then spooning him. Trying to make the most of academy life. Dave spent marathon hours on tennis courts, at Paula and Jody ' s. in his model building, photography, stereo, and sleeping hobbiesi meeting through concert committee work Jimmy Buffet. Pure Prairie League, and England Dan. The trend continued with a trip to the Lake Placid ' SO Olympics, skiing at Wooptown and hiking the AT with Bruce, going to Puertorrican receptions and tailgaters and keeping Junior out of trouble, skydiving, and AIAA trips to Pax River and Alabama.

YUCkH (Love those caterpillars! Right. Paula?) I suppose that her Southern cooking is not as had as the fishfood Paula has often been found handling over at the Rickover aquariums, her second home. that stuff could make anyone ill.

But also getting along well with others was developed, and refined continually, reflecting on Brad ' s amiable personality. How can we ever let the vision of Brad and his TR- 7 go astray?! He could have picked a larger mode of transportation to accomodate all his " Trident Scholar- ship " work. How can anyone work so hard. . . . Brad, remember us later, like you ' ve done in the past I Chuck came to USNA looking to continue his stellar rowing career, but little did he know that rowing for Navy equated to year-round maso- chism. He rowed heavies for a year, before he decided that 185 pounds was too much for his 5 ' 9 ' frame to carry or for his summer whites to cover. He managed to lose a girlfriend and gain a fiance by setting a friend up and then snaking him. during his first spring break. Youngster year Chuck was a faithful member of the Dahlgren Boys where he exhibited his thoroughbred taste in girls. By choosing the Aerospace major he never had to worry about boring study, much less wasting his time with a bunch of free periods.

Youngster year saw Doug design the Kim Class supercarrier in Dahlgren and visit every college in the area, a really dedicated traveling professional. On a wild fling to Ocean City at the end of youngster year Doug met his future wife. He soon went into debt and bought a classic MGB to commute to Florida on weekends oniy to meet the kycal South Carolina sheriff.

Otter quickly acquired the reputation as a crazy guy. Who else would go down 495 at 95 with an archery target on top of his van. a gallon of vodka in one hand, a cold one in the other, five passed out buddies on the floor, and a state trooper on his tail. Otter is the type of guy who eats Skoal for breakfast, listens to Waylon and Willie, and is forever trying to lose the ole beer belly. Otter was knighted Woman III for his driving ability on ole Bessie. ISO ' s in front of gate 8. and his mach 8 capability. This ability to navigate with a beer in each hand and with double vision (corrected by closing one eye), earned him the beer goggles ace of the highways award.

His major was math, since he had such a fine grasp on the enghsh language. He studied diligently alway shooting for a 4.0 but running out of bullets by midterms. He was known by all the Mids as a friend and by all the girls as Sir Ob of Noxious. Always wanting to pick up the nicest girl in a crowd, TJ always put on his goggles (beer). When he wasn ' t studying, trying to pick up girls or sleeping, he was watching TV. TJ saw life here at the Academy as a stepping stone ■ graduate and become the first Korean admiral in the nuclear navy. It is simple for TJ is the BEST, and he will always tell you so.

Jeff (the Bruiser) has made surprising progress. Always Mr. Professional, at one point in time he risked missing his summer cruise bus so he could run back to his room to shine his belt buckle. The Bruiser was also known for his faultless wisdom concerning women, although he never knew any women. Being Airborne qualified, his hobbies included teaching mice to do parachute landing falls from the fourth floor windows. Unfortunately, this did not last too long because the mice never returned for their second lesson. Looking for a new hobby, Jeff became the resident shoe-shining expert. Whenever he was found in the wardroom, his shoes and polish were sure to be there with him. From the wrestling contests to the water battles, there has never been a dull moment rooming with Jeff for tfvee years. Wf ether he is flying, pounding the ground, or absorbing neutrons, we wish him the best of luck.

He constantly was found in the winking and sleeping mode during study hour. Along with objecting to wearing under wear, the little Hood rug rat became notorious as the twelve inch pest. Spanky. as he was addressed in his last two years, demonstrated his flawless ability of impressing the women with his R and C comments.

He survived quirks waiting to be discovered and the Cosmic Cowboy during Plebe Summer and found a flake plebe year.

However he did keep himself amused by constantly harassing the upperclass and keeping them on the defensive. Youngster year, he bid farewell to the crew team and concentrated on the female forces in the Annapolis area. A suppressed killer mstinct surfaced and he joined the Batt. football team and the rubgy club. He delighted in bustmg faces and bodies. . . . but always with a smile. Second class year he decided to dump Marine Engineering and take up a more leisurely major. His k iller instinct intensified and he devoted his full time to rugby and girls.

Well. USNA impressed the whole family and before Joe realized It he was being sworn in at one of those lowly Plebet. Joe made it through plebe year with flying colors, with the tupport of lettert from Mom. and soon was ready to become an upperclassman. An upperclass now. Joe decided to leave Nimitz behind on Saturday nights and instead set out to develop his social graces. He bought himself a ' bad rod " and promptly drove to Florida to tee how real college students spent their break. It was while there that his true marathon dancing ability surfaced and the nickname of " Boogie " was awarded to him. Joe was always able to set his priorities in proper perspective however, as even though he usually spent most of his time in the racR. or out drinking and smokmg. he was able to maintain his 4.00 in Math and become 2 c brigade commander. Joe will alwa ys be remembered as a friend to all. Jeff plunged into his plebe year with great enthusiasm after a year in the fleet as an enlisted nuc and a vear at NAPS. Plebe year went smoothly but youngster cruise found Jeff aboard Mistral where he found out what real sailing (and real sea- sickness) were like. Early youngster year. Jeff became concerned at the oddities of the naval dating system and struck out on his own to become UNSA ' s Fred Astaire.

His mother had visions of him walking with his head up and of correcting his fingernail biting habit, but John came here with the idea of an exciting four years of athletics, education and training - the rack and women prevailed. Spanky. from his older locking features and unique schemes, has been able to find more older and interesting women than the avg Mid. One trick he uses is an Irish accent, which has the women fascinated and beats thinking of what really goes on in Ireland. When he isn ' t sleeping or out on the town, and since he doesn ' t know where the wardroom is. he can be found studying rigorously for his tough and ever demanding major. J.B. once thought of spending his five years of opportunity after graduation being a ghrious airedale. but after an excellent l c cruise in the Caribbean we may find him driving ships on the West Coast. We wish him the best of luck in whatever he decides. We rank him one of six. Kevin dribbled his way to WUBA U. from the plains of Goshen. Indians.

The major changed and Cool was found spending his late night hours watching the Benny Hill Show.

Seemingly quiet and shy at first — WATCHOUTI A coid beer, fast car. loud music, and an Indiana girl alt rank high on Cool ' s backboard.

Hardy, better known as Chuck, came to the Naval School on the Chesapeake from the banks of the Mississippi. Chuck, an avid sailor since before he could even walk, aspired to pursue his love of ships and the sea as a naval officer. While at Canoe U.. there were few challenges he could not successfully rise above. with the exception of studying and the obstacle course wall. Although his love of fine music and classical literature befitted the tastes of an octagenarian. his tastes in women were those of a man considerably younger than even himself. His taste m cars was no less demanding. Owning a Porsche had always been a lifelong dream. With the arrival of first class year, he grew impatient and settled instead for a Rabbit, a budget Porsche. Never at a loss for words. Chuck always had something to add to any conversation. Following graduation Chuck will pack his seabag for the surface fleet. We bid him smooth seas and following winds in all his future endeavors. Ralph comes to the academy from Hawaii, land of grass skirts and sunny beaches. Plebe year found Ralph becoming " uncivilized " and getting a haircut to prove it. Discovering that academics were boring as well as difficult. Ralph could be found asleep in the company office in the early hours of the morning- Youngster year found Ralph disco vering Dahlgren Hall, cheap beer, and girls in that order Famous for inventing ' Ralph- Born " training, he could be found stumbling around the hall until someone took him in. As a culmination of his training. Ralph decided to run the Marine Corps Marathon 2 c year drunk! Not wanting to miss a Saturday night at Dalgren. he didn ' t and he didn ' t get any sleep over tFie matter either But then a certain Princess " nuke " drafted him and wfw knows what will happen June Week ? A pre-commissioning physical found the Flight Surgeon urging Ralph to go surface line. Consequently, there will be smooth sailing around Hawaii for this beach lover. Neil came to us from a town across the river from Northern New Jersey. He ran the whoie way here to get in shape for his major - track. Plebe year was an eventful one for Neil. There was a firstie track star in the company who we called Mr. Anderson. Neil called him Ricky ■ at the top of his lungs in the middle of the hall - constantly. Neil never could understand why our second class would always be so mad at him. Neil also enjoyed study hour. This was a time to visit all his friends and he could easily find them ail in their own rooms. Well. Neil has finally made it. We thought for sure he ' d kill himself first. Hitting people in the fist with his nose and putting his legs between colliding Knockabouts does wonders for prolonging life. But he made it and during his stay, he put a mark on the field house record board that should last almost as k ng as the mark on his nose. Neil was always one to join in on the fun and should be a k t of fun in the Fleet. Good Luck. Neil, and keep working on that physique. MAJOR Graduation (with luck). SPOR T: Sailing.

Ciao and good luck to an amazing person. Butch came to u$ from Pensacola. proud of the fact that he was a bum. He had many hobbies which included rack and television and more rack and more television so first class year he put his talents to use and was elected wardroom president. Butch was also a very athletic person, in fact he won the coveted triple crown almost every semester he was here. But his real skill was the drill team where he worked hard for three years to become Prill Team Commander, hie also worked hard in his studies, always staying up late to study the reruns on television.

Never one to take his studies lightly. JB spent a great deal of his time in search of academic excellence, and more often than not came away with that elusive 4.0 despite majoring in Physics. Many late night " gouge " sessions were held in his room, with classmates from all over the Brigade flocking to his room for help with a particularly difficult problem. This zealous activity did not preclude John from enjoying himself once the work was done however, just ask anyone who attended the ' 79 Army-Navy Game parties. " Da Bruce " made a spectacular but short entrance which was talked about for weeks. Despite his thin frame. JB was not intimidated by " Fritz " , a plebe somewhat larger than himself.

Carr came to this illustious institution from South Jersey (which he always emphasized SOUTH) with high hopes and asperations. This Ocean Engineer was brigade honor coordinator his first class year but did some things that were, in themselves, deceiving. You could sometimes mistake Matt for a basketball player - for after a test he would always find the garbage can from over 30 feet away with all his books. Although going NUKE, be had tendencies toward Navy Air. He would run across the desk tops torching moths and keep score. Matt, being very industrious. always had about h? pro ects going at once. If he wasn ' t buildmg a Grand- fathers clock or making a hammock. he would be tying monkey ' s fists or making knot boards. Like everyone else who values their sanity. Matt had his escapes. While at the academy it was the D$B. On weekends he would make the trek North to see his girlfriend Charlene. where they had a knot tying prefect of their own. Matt will be greatly missed by all!

Mike came to USNA from the village of Stockton, in the state of California, to see what he could make of himself. Gazing eastward from his new home, he was heard to exclaim, " I always thought the Atlantic Ocean was wider.

Pete (Giz) Morgan, born and bred a true Nebratkan - and throughout his entire four years at the academy he never spent a day that he didn ' t get cut down for it. This pig farmer from the midwest fell quickly into the fast paced life of the big cities in the east. He learned to catch some rack whenever he could - like in the middle of one of the Army-Navy games. This was of course so fie could party hard afterwards. For him. though, partying hard was one or two beers. He never forgot his home, as could be seen by his many Nebraska pennants and pictures of Mary and his family. Petey ' B ' also spent many of his afternoons in the loft, where he earned his letter in fencing. He worked so hard that one of his legs seemed larger than the other.

Despite his high OPR, he retains Poli-sci as his trump card in the big showdown.

God- speed and good kick to ya Duffer. Gregg y came to the Naval Academy from the small city of Pottstown. Pa. His open door policy at home fit in well with the Plebe summer atmosphere. Upon his arrival Greg immediately started to be average. After exactly four weeks of this mediocrity a sudden change came over him. he decided he wanted stripes. This endeavor took up the majority of his time and effort for the next three years. You could often find Greg at the library trying to derive the universe. If he was not there you could find him at one of two other places, either in his room getting abused by yours truly and his other roomy or at his next favorite hangout, anywhere there was beer. First class year Greg achieved his ultimate goal, three-striper liberty. He also found another pastime, locating 4 by 4 " s with his Mustang With his grades however. Greg should be a great nuke and Rickover will love him if he can ever get over his lack of brains that seem to come with 3 or more stripes. REMEMBER THE BENCH 31 ■RAT- RICHARD C. FRANZA CLIFTON PARK.

Rich s nickname derives from his unusual protruding proboscis, also the subject of contin- ual humorous remarks. Franz has been one of USNA ' s true academic studs. He IS one of the few Mids to make It through without ever opening a book (though he did study for a final once). His grades nonetheless are a lmost good enough for him to achieve his aspiration of being one of Rickover ' s elite. First class year held tome disappointments for Rich. Not being " striper material. " he lost the phone that goes with being Honor Chairman. Also the Yankees folded - again. We will always be indebted to Rich for his part in OL YMPICTRAMID ' SO. With his easygoing attitude and sense of humor. Rich should do well in Rickover ' s navy - if he makes it.

Nobody in the history of USNA ever has given less chow calls and has still graduated. He was able to do this because of the gullibility of one of his roomies. Steve managed to validate the last half of plebe year by getting a very strange disease which only afflicted him during formations. Youngster year Steve started his search for the elusive letter sweater. Two years. 2 majors and an Ac-board later he was finally able to go to class without putting on a cover (WAS IT WORTH IT?). You could always count on Kobes to have a chow package in his room and never share it. You could also count on him to always have a mean comeback to you when you said something to him. Oh - well I guess that IS why only one person could live with him while he was here. Yes we are the only ones to stick together through all four years.

Youngster year, the NAPS occupied much of Mary ' s limited study time (most of which took place on a blue Pig). Some people will do anything to get to a party but pushing the Alfa down Earragut was a bit much. Fortunately for the partners in crime, the parties at 03 Spa View were worth ANY trouble getting there. Many a night was spent dancing to Motown ' s greatest and absorbing kamikazes. Going to the Fearless table at Riverside with Bluce. Flank, and Rhodez became a way of life. Actramid found us at the Bilge and the Swamp with our BEST white wine. Second class year.

Howie earned himself a few weekends in the hail by being a member of the infamous donut gang. ' By second class year.

Howie really went all-out his last year here by making himself available to all those lovely girls from Hood. Notre Dame.

Among his favorites were riding his bicycle, playing his guitar and his strenuous workouts with the afternoon rack team. Pat ' s leisure time was spent in preparing his body for the rigors of flight school. He maintained a light weight by never drinking more than two beers in a single night.

But seriously folks. Todd is a good man to have on your side. Like letting you sleep, while he cleans the room, and also telling you when those " nifty " pop inspections were coming. He always thinks of others before himself, which is a fine quality to have and will help him in his career while driving boats around the Southern Pacific. J. P. IS from Petersburg. Michigan - the heart of America according to him. In addition to playing football for 3 years before coming to USNA. he also went to Summerfield High School in his spare time. He is one of those types that have to be involved in everything. Through much effort he has worked himself into the unenvi- able position of being the coach of the 6th BATT football team, the President of the Antiphonal Choir, and an active member of the Glee Club all at the same time. J.P. IS a singular character with many varied interests which he will enthusiastically tell you about many times over if given the chance. However his two main interests are football and the U.S. Marine Corps He aspires to be a Marine Corps Officer and a High School football coach in that order. J. P. is just the right type to do It and we wish him good luck. A quote in the USNA catalogue says that this isn ' t the pUce for aspiring gurus. WeU Matt certainly proved this statement to be incorrect. With his unique quality of inner peace and a habit of making statements of sheer brilliance, one could only assume his powers were mystically induced. Perhaps Matt ' s hng periods of " meditation " in the rack could account for his mega - OPR. Unfortun- ately for ' 84. Matt never allowed his calm nature to stand in the way of professionalism. Many a hurricaned room will attest to that. Between yawns, stretches, and doing every- body elses homework. Matt found time to run a martahon or two (or three.). He was always up for a good party, and many a Saturday night Matt could be found hucklebucking about local girl coUeges.

One dream became to prove that the minimum OF J.O COULD BE SURPASSED ANY SEMES- TER TOM. YOU MADE IT THE FLEET WILL GAIN A PARTNER WHO IS DETERMINED TO GO FAR. Pete came from a town with about the same population as the Academy and was in the sticks of Mass. Though unsure of his future plans in the Navy, he was one of Hy man ' s boys as it soon became evident. The success he had in school didn ' t cut into his social life which was filled with beer, women, and a great sponsor family. You could tell he appreciated the good things in life by his choice of female posters in tfie room. IT SOON CAME TO THE POINT THAT THE VISITORS HAD TO BE SCREENED BEFORE Entering. Petes true hve came just in time for Xmas and was a brand new Rally Sport. As with most Xmas gifts he fisd to return it when a classmate of his altered the front end with a head on cotisicn. So much for classmate hyallty. His first class cruise was just that, with a tour in the Brazilian Navy. How he got the nickname " rock " continues to puzzle all. maybe it has some Polish deriva- tion, or was represeniallve of his swimming abilities. Alma, hailing from Hawaii, began her military career earlier than her contemporaries as a mini-woop from exclusive Panahou. Arriving full of jubilation and anticipation of all of the " fun " drill we would be doing, she was soon put in her place and shown the NAVY way of doing things by the notorious " Vater. " Alma, a true stud, arrived with a 13th national ranking in rifle. She subsequently has had more trouble with her Mile than most of us have in becoming CNO. Passing was her goal, and she perservered. The same held true as a Mech. due to friends like Wild Bill, the Rocket.and Dr. J.J.. Who needs enemies? With so many problems and ailments, one often wonders how Alma was always . . always so cheerful. She was constantly inspired and told to clean her room by a certain loving " Pone. " It was his care and determination that helped her out in many trying situations. Alma, with your ultra- superdynamic personality, the Navy better stand to one side. You will undoubtedly do very well, we ' re sure. ALOHA USNA 32 I ■ ' MAC ' ' FRANKLIN F. McCALLISTER PITTSBURGH. PA SPS " JEFF " JEFFERY L. MEANS ALBUQUERQUE. NM SPS MONTE R. NEWMAN YANKTON.

He decided that the Tar Heel scene of chasing girls, partying, playing off classes, and playing football wasn ' t what he wanted to major in. So. after a brief stop in Sewport he came to the Severn to do someting different, namely chase girls, party play off classes, and play football. Yes. this friendly giant has the highest personal standards of anyone. Sever one to give up in the classroom or on the field Vfjc always accomplished what he set out to do. Where he is off to no one knows but wherever it is beware of a self demanding, hard- working, friend forever. Jeff, also known as the Zoid. hails from the great city of Albuquerque, .M. An avid guitarist and gymnast, he ' s what you ' d call an all-round stud. The fact that he has a black belt in Karate kept him from being taken out as an upperclass, since the piebes were scared to death of him and his awesome bird- legs. After thoroughly enjoying women at the Academy, he finally found his true hve and settled down, with a civilian named Tern. J c year found him as a flamer to the max, smiling all the time. At the end of the year, he was thinking about being a nuke puke, but gave it up. Lord Hyman doesn ' t like Phy Sci ' s who think that I pkjs I equals I. So he wit proudly be wearing the Marine green, and enjoying every minute of the trips through the mud that he missed as a mid. Good hjck, Zoid. Monte came to U.S.SA. as a shy country boy from South Dakota whose idea of a good time was watching the grass grow in his yard while coddling his favorite cooler. Once the academics hit he became the Mr Hyde of the chem labs and one of the more notorious members of the " Secret Society " . Starting as a skinny professional geek his attitude be ame somewhat more realistic as the years passed. No k nger did he like to party at the library on Saiirday night, and eat stuff because it was good for him. Undoubtedly he wit be immortalized for his performaryce at Army second class year when he loaded a Polish bomb after downing a turkey. A k t of work in his own " MONTtS 9th WING GYM " turned him into the infamous " BIG GUY " we know now. Hes seen cruising the area on weekends with his one true k ve. a little red TTK. Seedless to say his idea of a good time has become a bit more fast paced but he ' s never too busy to dole out a little abuse or cynacism. JT will fit the classic JIT JOCK image to a Mark " Gunter " Pallin — saik r extraordinaire and old salt from old Saybrook. Conn., thought about sailing 2J hours of the day, and slept the rest of the time. Friends often wondered if his fiancee, LJ. was really a girl or an affectionate name for a Hobie Cat ' , His sailing efforts were hardly in vain as he became the fearless skipper of the yawls ISTRtPID and FROLIC, sailed to Bermuda for his summer of 80 cruise, was named captain of the yawl sailing team, and finally got his Savy letter sweater. Mark was the first Mid to achieve the honor of possessing a " D " command for vawls — however, the privilege suddenly became a memory when he decided to play " chicken " with another yawl — and lost: As CO, SubCdr during Plebe Summer. Mark proved a capable leader - and also that the only sure way to gain a Piebes respect is to bribe him with a girlfriend ' s cookies. With the Sarc experience he ' s gained, the friends he ' s made, a woman like LJ. and his Orange Flash — he can ' t lose. 32 fiu»ij nf ' r .7L..... JiMJ i BEN- BIENVENIDO A. PANCHO VIRGINIA BEACH.

In spite of a sure appointment to the Merchant Marine Academy, Ben played out his option and spent a year at NAPS where he acquired the valuable talents of spending money, wasting time, chow- ing down, and interior decorating. Ptebe year found Ben associating with a certain Risque magazine and a shady character named " Christian Alverez. " As a youngster. Ben found application for his talents as he managed to avoid almost everything through the Drum and Bugle corps and a stmt in the Y.P. squadron, where he was crowned " Head Chef underway.

Dick I came to us from Brandis U. where he majored in the three B ' s. baseball, beer, and broads. His previous studies helped him greatly and played a major role in his life here at the Academy. He IS presently captain of the baseball team and only his teammates, his roommate, and a few broken hearted women know why he wears the number I. Some of Jim ' s exploits with the ladies have become legendary here at the Academy. Few in thirty-second company will forget the formal that he invited five girls to, and they all accepted.

Off the field, Chris ' track is hard to beat. As a rambunctious plebe, fleeting glimpses of him dashing back for taps, clothes disarrayed, and high pitched echoes of " Chris is it always going to be like this " were common occurrences. Much of his frivolity, however, has disappeared since dating a quiet, gentle, female Marine who threatens to break his neck if he steps out of tine.

This smooth talker with the bedroom eyes found more than his share in the form(s) of young{l) ladies from all over. One thing Shawn never had to look far for was trouble. It looked for him and usually found him. found him plebe year with his hands in his pockets on Main Street, followed him (along with the Annapolis police) into Paca Gardens youngster year, and caught him second class year on 450 in the form of Ralph, the invisible dog. Despite his problems, however, the royal Bodkin needs no pity. He leaves for Pensacola with a dozen wild memories for every deuce, and a dozen friends for every SLUGGO. Out of the fk rida sunshine came Tom. Although badly in need of a haircut, he did arrive on time (perhaps for the last time in the next 4 years). Tom. the " Master of the All-Sighter " . would never cease to amaze everyorw by doing 4 weeks of work in one night. Sot one to sleep a kit. except in class. Tom was more of a quality sleeper, usually going into a comatose state. One of the top performers in the company his prowess to dress while running to formation only failed him once.

Brian went out with more beauties than most mids knew. How he did it we always wondered. Perhaps it was those big blue eyes, the way he never combed his hair, or that apparent innocence that he portrayed to others. While few people would consider Brian ' s Chevette to be very fast, few women considered Brian to be very slow (or innocent) once they had taken a ride in his little machine. Maybe that was why his hair was always messed up. The only trait which was more noticeable than Brian ' s intelligence and ability with people was his extreme frankness. His finest hour as a mid had to be the Striper Board at which Brian told a certain LtCol and Battalion Officer exactly what to do with drill.

Never one to waste valuable time on academic endeavors. Ted went Phy Sci youngster year ■ making nightly trips over the wall a reality. The problem of where to spend all of this free time was solved 2 c year, with the help of a cute school-teacher, whose apartment was conveniently located overlooking gate 3. Four years of Navy Rugby earned Ted 2 Nstars. numerous bumps 6 bruises, and a massive number of out-of-control parties. Having reached the limits of the automoblile. Ted looks forward to Pensacola and his wings of gold. Give him the fastest and noisiest jet the Navy has to offer, and say goodbye. You can be sure that Ted will make a great piht i a close friend.

Hence forth Kevin never studied more than a few minutes a night. He managed to occupy his evenings in friendly games of chess and letters to Dear Abbie.

Whatever crowd he happens to be with, he fits right in: Road-trippers, the air-jock. community, " hard-core " partyers, nv professionals, athletes, and " aero-spaced-out-engineers. " . There is a remarkable intensity associated with Kevin ' s outlook on life. Everything he does is important and he lives with a passionately romantic vigor. Works hard, plays hard . . . but never lets schooling get in the way of his educaiton. In so many ways, the hcky people who can claim to be his friends will all agree that Kevin has profoundly infkjenced the company, the class of ' SI and their own outlook on life. 33 271 SMITTY " PATRICK D.

These are qualities which Marc brought with him in abundance when he came to old USNA after a year at Prep School. Marc ' s down to earth manner and masochistic tendencies led him to seek his fun through pain! Navy Crew and the magic of a £B major seemed the perfect choices. From the first, this " Big Dog " earned the admiration and unqualified re- spect of his teammates. As a member of Navy ' s 1980 NRA championship eight. Marc led in his determination to succeed. Though often physicaUy hurt at crucial times during his first two years. Marc exemplified tbe resilience and tenacity of a winner in returning to the crew stronger each time. In the academic war. Marc was often in hazardous country but somehow always managed to stay one step ahead of the engineering blitz. Priorities being what they were, these narrow escapes never kept him off the water. Well liked and well prepared through his own efforts. Marc is and will be a successful officer and a fine person. Fast Frank, who arrived to USNA via the urban metropolis of New FhHartd.

In 4 years, he spent close to 5C0 hours in this way — half of which were used to get his roommate thru computers and cal- culus (thanks Augiel). But a geek he was not.

Steve has come a long way since those days of plebe summer when he was ranked last in his squad. A native of Towson. Maryland and a product of Calvert Hall High School, Steve came to the academy with high ambition to be a mechanical engineer He was brought quickly back to reality, however, and wisely decided to become an English major instead. While at the academy he picked up on the game of squash, and through his hard work and determmation. he earned the coveted N star with a victory over Army as a member of the varsity squash team. Over the years Hoops, as he was cleverly nicknamed, was the most conscientious and dependable person in Chb 34 and thus became the company commander during first class year. Steve ' s happy-go-kjcky attitude pkis his shrewd judgement will undoubtedly distinguish him among those who ride on the high seas. Do it up Hoop! We are all pulling for you. Back in the summer of ' 77, Art left California with his bags packed with OP ' s. vitamins, and his surf- board. Upon arriving at USNA. he discovered that the Severn was not an extension of the Banzai pipeline. He came with high hopes of contributing to Navy wrestling, but an unfortunate knee injury pinned his career in just a year. Art ' s membership in the ckib was passed by the unanimous vote, but in his first 2 years. Midshipmen regulations prevented him from partaking in the chb s activities. Artie ' s hard work and diligence finaSy paid off as he breezed thru nd class year. He played rugby and traveled extensively in search of his only desire. Art logged many miles and friends in his journey. In 1980 the world saw Mt. St. Helens erupt.

His incessant use of hackneyed phrases belies his verbosity, which is exceeded only by his subtle mockery of his room- mate ' s various and sundry bad habits.

Though Alabama was his residence during high school, we all consider Phil to be a typical Californian. His easy-going lifestyle seems more at place on a San Francisco beach than in a military institution. What some perceived as a radical streak in Phil was actually a well-directed and encouraging rebelliousness. Phil could perhaps be best described as a rugged individualist, a sort of rustic James Dean However this James Dean has a cause, after all. Physics majors who go Navy Air are very rare these days. Phil IS a very peaceful person until he puts on his karate uniform, a sport which, along with his car " Kashmir " and academics, was one of his ma or preoccupations.

Knocking over more hurdles than he cleared didn ' t help. Undaunted. Jim devoted his infinite energy to his studies, eventually beating aerospace engineering into submission. His degree will be a relief to us all - maybe he ' ll stop complain- ing.

It was quickly discovered by alt that Pat had an incurable appetite that ranged from honey dipped donuts to live worms, all of which was usually washed down by large quantities of cheap beer. This appetite made Pat tfie constant butt of " fatbcy " jokes and was the source of many a nickname. The only thing that came chte to his eating habits was his sense of humor.

TO HIS SKELETON BODY. THUS STOPPING RUMOURS THA T HE had been dead for 3 years. But It was his heavy workouts of chess, bridge, and masqueraders that really kept Pat in shape, and helped him achieve his great marching record (he only passed out ONCE). BUT SERIOUSLY. PAT WAS VERY ACTIVE IN USNA HANDBALL AND BA TALLION vol leyball, helping lead his teams to many brigade champion- ships. And if his grades weren ' t 4.0. the only reason is because he spent so much time helping everyone else with their homework. Pat s only academic problem was semi-illiteracy, which hopefully HE400 cured. Zeke. the betyop king, is a friend to all. In an attempt to avoid the Texas Rangers and another speeding ticket. Dave donned the Navy Blue and Gold (his favorite song since early in his childhood). He soon found that the Maryland State Police didn ' t care for speeders either, but much to our pleasure he stayed anyway. Dave brought many reminders of Texas and his redneck past, but the one thing he brought that everyone enjoyed was " Dave ' s Bar and Grill " . He had but two expectations for his brief visit to the Severn, first TO DEVELOP INTO AN EXCEPTIONAL LEADER AND THEN TO BUY A FIREBIRD, At least he got the car. Dave received many added benefits he didn ' t count on. such as his experiences with golf, aero all nighters. and Wahoos. He even had time to prove, through many tests, his hypothesis THAT THE GIRLS HE IS ATTRACTED TO ARE ' WEIRD ' . DAVE GREW TO LOVE NA VY and proved it by getting a black eye while CDO out on Army recons. When the chance comes, we will all be drinking to Dave because we know he will be drinking to us. any excuse will do. Jose Calle ' s little boy Jo Jo came to the Boat School in July of 77, determined to be the first Filipino admiral in the U.S. Navy. His aspiration to command was seen pfette year, as JoJo sailed with those " greyhounds of the Severn " , the Y.P. Squadron. Not hng after that. JoJo turned to the world os sports, and today is one of the more formidable powerlifters at USNA. in the image of his idol. Roland. JoJo appreciates all the classic fine thirtgs in life: wine, women, and song. His dancing ability and natural romantic nature made him a favorate with the local ladies. Lnjt I ' ve only seen one woman get the better of him. JoJo is a serious Ocean Engineer, if that ' s possible, and he wishes to find himself cuddling with a reactor as one of Hymie ' s atomic wonders.

I discovered a great friend who I and many others will always remember with fond memories. John is a very generous person who would " GIVE THE SHIRT OFF HIS BACK " IF YOU NEEDED IT. JOHN ' S EXCEL- LENCE In sports, academics, and friendship were due to his ability to " set his priorities " . His theme songs were " You can ' t always get what you want " . ' You gotta do what you gotta do " , and any and every song by " The Who " . With great memories of a great roommate and friend.

Desiring to continue a career in the medical field, he majored in Chemistry with hopes of eventually becoming a doctor.

N«? matter what Dave came up against at the Academy, be It a tough lob or a chance to go out and party, he a ways accomplished the task with an original flare. Dave will make an outstandirtg Saval Officer in every respect. Good kjck and smooth sailing. After two years with the real fleet. Mike decided to enroll at Canoe U. looking for that long promised Saval adventure. Academy life soon proved to be too dull, however, so K4ike was forced to make his own excitement. He began by rowing crew during plebe year but found that this was not masochistic enough, so he decided to major in electrical engin- eering while pursuing a career in political science. This toe proved to be too mundane, so he joined a stolen car ring where he had great fun and will carry happy memories (scars) for life. Rewarded for his efforts. Mike became the company honor rep to keep an eve out for competition, 4ike has alwavs wanted his name in lights, and his name was a frequent sight upon a certain " dirt ' board.

IT DIDN ' T TAKE US LONG TO REALIZE THAT MIKE HAD SOME VERY SPECIAL TALENTS. SOMEHOW. HE COULD MAKE INAN IMATE OBJECTS ELY OUT THE WINDOW, not to mention the way he could make a flamingshot of " Two- Eingers " DISAPPEAR. HOWEVER. IT WASN ' T TIL LATER THAT WE WOULD EIND OUT THAT his real area of expertise lay in making mud pies. He always claimed it was his research project. Sure Mike. Playing with mud ranked high on his list of fun things to do along with sailing and driving to Arlington. Yes. life with Mike wasn ' t so bad if you could handle nut so Eridays and rare air. Surely he will meet with as much success as a Blue Dolphin, if they don ' t ax him for ruining the atmosphere. Mik ie joined us here at Che- sapeake Naval Tech after flying in from sunny Southern California and Long Beach State. Originally a great fan of Margaret Trudeau. Mike swore in as an American citizen just a week before swearing to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. Mike had loved the northern light of Canada, and he had loved the California sun. but he soon fell in love with the Annapolis moon, as one Plebe Summer BOOW can attest. As a plebe.

Plebe year was a mixture of emotion, frustration, anxiety, and sweat. For most of us, it was our first time in a military environment. Our first summer was a nightmare of hot days, short meals, and long comearounds. Every where we looked first class were harassing, helping, and leading. No one seemed sure about what the end would be like. But when Parent ' s Weekend finally arrived, it was glorious. Academics hit most of us like a ton of bricks in September. Most of us learned new study habits to pull us through the semester. The Naval Science final was held before Christ- mas but all the rest remained until January. Christmas leave was the first time most of us had been home since July. The feeling of seeing old friends, going to the old hang outs, and sleeping at home was overwhelming. Two weeks after it started, leave was over and once again we returned to the boat school to face the Dark Ages and count the days till Herndon. When the second semester ended, we looked with hope and restrained delight at the prospect of June Week and scaling the obelisk to rid ourselves of plebeness forever. After eighty-one minutes, plebe year was over and drinking, dating, and riding in cars were reality. H ' ' i %jj W% » : ii. % iii 1 " l..-f- ... :-M mm iOH i :. . " --s . i Youngster year was the long awaited opportunity for us to catch our breath and relax from the rigors of the previous year. For most of us. the year began with a month long indoctrination into the fleet, Youngster Cruise, where we learned about enlisted life. Back in Annapolis, we all adapted quickly to life as upperclass. Only then could we legally enjoy dating, stereos, and a drink — privileges taken for granted at most civilian colleges. Moreover, most of us were able to enjoy that precious upperclass privilege making life in Bancroft more livable — the weekend, often spent at other colleges such as Mary Washington. Hood, and Mary- land. As a comparatively carefree year drew to a close, each of us came to a critical turning point in our lives. The majority of us remained, opting for the commitment. i :CS n r iiii iiiMIP i ' ' x i tm i 309 ♦f. m r " 1 fj-rrvvrt ' : . rvl Second class year will typically be remembered as our most serious year in many respects. The summer training taking us flying in Pensacola, ground pounding in Quantico, down under in New London, and afloat in Norfolk helped many find their niche in the Navy or Corps. Many looked ahead to the future — pondering service selection. Fired up with training experience from the summer and faced with a heavy load of professional courses, we were eager to share our new found knowledge with the plebes. Even though we were given more and longer weekends than before, many of us found that studies sometimes interferred and in some cases preempted our weekend plans. The Hall was quite often the scene of very late night cramming as we trudged our way through Wires or Cables, Weapons, and Celestial Nav. Other nights, we packed the wardroom as we enjoyed our first legal year of television privileges. Finally, the year drew to a close with the highlight of Commissioning Week being the glamorous Ring Dance — after which we could proudly wear our ring. f 317 K WI. . i J- ' ' 334 Alas first class year! A Plebe Summer almost as hot as our first. Unlimited weekends. Car waxing on Thursday. Duty every so often. Civilian clothes. Tailgaters. It was our turn to put all the leadership theory we learned into practice — our opportunity to improve Brigade life. It was the year when we made one of the most important choices In our lives — service selection. A time for enjoying life and our friends of the last three years. A time of parties both at home and away — at Army or on weekend or in Dahlgren (Army Pizza Night, " 81 " Night). A time when much to the plebes ' chagrin, we queried others " How many days? " And then, the time for the final finals arrived. Soon, hats and shoulder boards littered the field. We forged ahead in our many directions grateful for the friendships in the past and hopeful for the future. ■tf iX, SERVICE SELECTION NIGHT 81 NIGHT f B s r § 9 f f ■Mk, Graduating With Distinction Brent Ward Jett, Jr. Robert Jay Niewoehner Stuart Wayne Swetland Michael James Connolly ' Eugene Braiden Rex Louis David Marquet Paul James Bushong Russell Wade Scott II Michael James Gallet Kevin Christopher Warnke Jay Troy Grafton, Jr. Wendy Berrien Lawrence John Paul Hetrick, Jr. Anthony Frank Chiffolo Eric Armour Kenneth Dale Walker Timothy John Dwyer Ronald Bruce Hawkins Herbert Russell Elkin James Michael Rice •Harvey Small Hopkins John Russell Daugherty Joseph John Arango Peter Alvin Polcari Alber t Reita Nagao Louis Benson Cooper Mark Alan McCormick Kenneth John Voorhees Randy John Ball Lee Oran Smith Kevin Eugene O ' Flaherty Kathleen Rose Cooper Christopher John Willy Timothy Scott MacGregor Bruce Moore Hagaman Joseph Eugene Reynolds Thomas Paul Yavorski Staurt Dean Bailey Carl Leo Spataro, Jr. Michael Douglas Mahre Charles Edward Wright Kim Alan Hauer David Charles Hardesty Jeffrey Wayne Asher John Patrick Keenan Diane Carol Durban James Terrence Stewart ' William Harry Johnson John Leonard Braun Daniel Sean McGarvey John Edward Butala Lloyd Edward Philpot II Gregory Richard Fine Matthew Paggi John Wesley Barnhill Mark Lee Mervine Charles Joseph French, Jr. John William Nicholson Chris Frederick Pierson Susan Alison Cowan Dennis Patrick Soukup Mark Thomas Mulligan Richard Joseph Racine Greogry James Rhodes John Kent Mills David Wayne Lannetti Nicholas Russell Schacht ' William Hunter Hilarides Robert Thompson MacMillan, Jr. Jenifer Ann Joyce David Bryant Burton Gregg Stanley Buczkowski Gary Becker Jeffrey Lee Upchurch ' Mark Eliot Middleton Bradley Frederick Hahn Eugene Blaire Sedy Paul David Ims, Jr. Alan Douglas Scott Jon Alan Greene Phillip Joseph Antonino Kevin Wade Alt Keith Paul Bowman Richard Alan Peterson, Jr. Steven Roger Eastburg James Franklin Caldwell, Jr. John Richard Hafey John Harris Wilson, Jr. William McKinley Drake James Francis King William Baker Woodhouse Karl Samuel Fairbanks, Jr. Edward Joseph Tucholski Jack Edward Vess James Milton Ahigrimm David Carl Fuquea Jeffrey David Castleton Rodney Matthew Adams ' Trident Scholar SC TRIDENT SCHOLARS Outstanding students who have completed independent research protects in particular an class year after toeing selected at the end of second class year 1980 - 1981 ACADEMIC YEAR ! during their first William Hunter Hilarides Harvey Small Hopkins William Harry Johnson Mark Eliot Middleton Eugene Braiden Rex SELECTED FOR GRADUATE EDUCATION PROGRAMS JUNIOR LINE OFFICER ADVANCED SCIENTIFIC EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM (BURKE SCHOLARSHIP) Eric Armour Paul James Bushong John Paul Hetrick, Jr. Harvey Small Hopkins Brent Ward Jett, Jr. Wendy Berrien Lawrence Mark Alan McCormick James Michael Rice Kenneth Dale Walker Kevin Christopher Warnke BURKE Equivalent (Marine Corps) Phillip Joseph Antonino Dean Eldon Fish David Carl Fuquea Gwendolyn Delois Mines Clarence Robert Perry, Jr. Richard Joseph Racine Gregory James Rhodes GEORGE OLMSTED FOUNDATION SCHOLARSHIP CANDIDATES Anthony Frank Chiffolo Herbert Russell Elkin Timothy Scott MacGregor Carl Leo Spataro, Jr. RHODES SCHOLARSHIP New College.

The 1980 team relied on a top ranked defense, a powerful running attack, and converted safety Fred Reitzel at quarterback. The season did not start out smooth for the Mids as their offensive inexperience showed in a 6-3 loss at Virginia. But Navy rebounded the next week in front of the brigade to post a convincing 31-3 thrashing of Kent State. Led by Tim Jordan ' s two fumble recoveries and four interceptions, the Blue-Wave Defense set up all five scores. Tailback Mike Sherlock. Reitzel, Fullback Duanc Flo er . and Tis ht Fnd Curt Gainer all scored touchdowns for Navy. The following week Navy continued its winning ways by rolling up 555 total yards against William and Mary for a 45-6 win. Navy set a school record for first downs with 32; Reitzel threw for 206 yards; and Eddie Meyers ran for 116 yards. Navy ' s defense limited the Indians to 1 74 total yards and the lone touchdown by the visitors was the first given up by the Mids this year. For the third straight week Navy was home, this time for Homecoming 1980 against Boston College. The Eagles proved no match as the number one ranked Navy Defense allowed B.C. to cross midfield onh once all dav in a 21-0 shutout.

Back-up quarterback Tom Tarquinio led Navy on its game winning drive which resulted in a 30 yard Steve Fehr field goal. Navy next travelled to Atlanta to play Georgia Tech. Navy not only came away with a 19-8 victory but also a bid to host the Garden State Bowl in East Rutherford, N.J. Meyers ran for 148 and one touchdown and Fehr kicked a Navy record four field goals. All that was left on the regular schedule was Army. The game was moved back to its traditional Thanksgiving weekend but to a new site. Veterans Stadium. 343 Sidelines NAVY 33 - ARMY 6 Navy destroyed Army for the seventh time in the last eight years 33-6 to take a 38-37-6 lead in the series. Steve Fehr opened the rout with a game and Nav record 50 yard field goal, the first of four he would kick that day. Less than a minute and a half later, Fred Reitzel scored from the nine after Travis Wallinglon recovered an Army fumble. The first quarter ended with Navy leading 10-0 and Army without a first down. Reitzel and Fehr repeated their first quarter scores to post Navy to a 20-0 lead at the half. The second half started out like the first with a Fehr field goal. But soon after Army got its only chance to cheer on a 26 yard run by tailback Gerry Walker to make the score 23-7. Reitzel responded b taking Navy 63 yards in 12 plays passing nine yards to Dave Dent for the score. Back-up quarterback Tom Tarquinio engineered the final Navy drive capped by a 32 yard Fehr field goal. For the day, Eddie Meyers rushed for 144 yards to match Army ' s total offensive output and Dave Dent caught a season high six passes. 347 Garden State Bowl ' If Despite a 3-2 overall finish. Navy ' s l ' )80 lighlweighl foolball learn had several bright spots, including shutouts of Rutgers and Pennsylvania and a sound thrashing of Princeton. Team standouts included Vic McCree who threw for six touchdowns and completed forty-eight percent of his passes. Sixteen of these were taken by .la Kennedy, who averaged 14.2 yards per catch. Chris Butler, who led the mids in rushing for the year with 1 17 carries and a 4.9 yard average, rolled up nearly half of his yardage in one game. He carried the ball 263 total yards against Princeton to become the Lightweight League Player of the Week. Effort put forth by the team under " new " coach Jack Cloud, who was actually returing for his third stint as head coach, was strong. The loss of nine starters due to injuries during the season was the primary cause for the team ' s two losses. The injured included such outstanding players as defensive co-captain Joe Mucci. running backs Frank Kelly and Walt Nobles, and receivers Mike Davis and Todd Coker. The young team ' s inexperience was a contributing factor to the small number of victories. However, with nearly eighty percent of the team returning for the 1981 season. Navy should have a really good year. 150 FOOTBALL 353 How can anyone lorgct Navy ' s 1980 Cross Country team? An undefeated regular season, a shut-out of Army, a close second at the Heptagonals, and near miss in its attempt at getting to the NCAA nationals. Other high points in the season included a triumph over previously undefeated Syracuse and a sound thump- ing of Oxford-Cambridge from England From the very beginning the team knew what had to be done: win the Heps and make it to the NCAA championships. To accomplish these goals, several of the mids began training as early as June bv running in various races from California to the Swiss Alps. With eight of twelve starters returning, it seemed like the team ' s work was already cut out for them. That didn ' t stop the mids, however, from putting in nearly 100 miles per week beginning at 0600 daily. The team ' s success may be attributed primarily to the leadership of team captain Mark Donahue and the outstanding running of second classman Bill Kovach. who finished first in nearly every race of the season. Chris Paul, Bob Centeno, and Mill McCormack, all of whom will also be returning for the " 81 season, consistent- ly turned in fine performances as well. Donahue insisted that the camarader- ie that existed among the team members was the biggest contributing factor to the team ' s success. In his words, " The successes, the disappointments, the miles, the bus rides, and especially the friend- ships all made the 1980 cross country season one which will never be forgotten.

The Varsity Soccer squad, led by co-captains Greg Denkler and Mike Wilson, finished with a 10-7-1 overall record, another ECAC South Championship title and a near miss at being selected to play in the post-season NCAA tournament. Early in the season, the mids, after defeating ninth-ranked national power- house Howard University, were rated thc fourteenth best team in the country. This was the highest ranking achieved by a Navy soccer team in over four years. Navs continued down the path to victory with wins over American University, Rhode Island, and Old Dominion, each of which Nas a top 20 contender when encountered. The season clima.x came with a 3-1 come-from-behind victory over Army at West Point, the first time in eight years that the cadets had lost to the mids on their own territory. In addition to Denkler and Wilson, the team lost eight firsties to graduation, including leading scorer Gerry Hueber. The 1981 season promises to be equally exciting, with standouts Danny Humph- reys and Keith Waters leading the way. i ra - a r- M MW 3 1 V AH p SOCCER NAVY OPPONENT 5 Hampdcn-Sydney 2 Howard 1 1 Maryland 2 5 Swarthmore North Carolina State 1 1 Rutgers 2 3 Washington College 1 George Washington 1 American University 2 James Madison Pennsylvania 1 2 Old Dominion Penn State 1 Catholic University 2 1 Rhode Island Washington and Lee 1 3 Army Record: 9-7-1 ECAC South Championships 1 1 George Mason Coach: Greg Myers V ARMY LOSES AT HOME: NAVY 3 - ARMY 1 $ Led by captain Sue Cowan, the 1980 Women ' s Volleyball team completed another exciting season, but were not able to perform as well as in previous years, finishing with a disappointing 12-23-1 record. The team lost several key starters early in the season and was perpetualh hampered by injuries. These impairments, when combined with the team ' s relative inexperience and a tough schedule, help to explain the dismal record. There were, however, several high- lights during the season. In August the largest crowd ever to witness a Women ' s Volleyball game turned out for a preseason confrontation with Belgium. Later, the mids finished sixth in the George Washington Tournament, and fourth in the Towson State Tournament. Competitors in these events included such powerhouse teams as Georgetown. Lehigh, Temple, North Carolina. Towson State, and archrival George Washington.

The team got off to its best start in twenty years by winning six straight meets before suffering a loss to Springfield. Finally, they capped off a successful season by taking fourth place in the post-sea.son Eastern Championships. Big w ins of the season included a first place among eight colleges competing in the Towson Stale Invitational and a defeat of Syracuse which had finished second in the East the previous year. In toppling Massachusetts, Navy posted its highest score in history, 256.55. The fourth place finish at Easterns was significant in that Navy not only defeated Springfield but also triumphed over arch-rival Army. This was sweet revenge, especially the defeat of an Army team which had beat Navy by a mere 1.2 points earlier in the season at West Point. ® SEASON IN NA VY HISTOR Y NAVY OPPONENT 232.70 Syracuse 222.85 240.85 Cornell 180.15 231.45 West Chester State 118.60 247.90 West Virginia 231.30 242.95 Slippery Rock State 191.70 249.85 William Mary 221.00 241.55 Springfield 246.50 255.10 Southern Connecticut 263.50 255.10 East Stroudsburg State 163.20 256.55 Massachusetts 248.50 251.55 Temple 263.15 256.40 Army 257.65 250.35 North Carolina State Record: 9-4 226.10 4th Easterns Coach: Bill Savering r M 367 II t Although the team ' s outstanding players are much too numerous to delineate, several members were consistent winners.

Less obvious, however, are those factors which keep the mids from even being considered for the tourney: a new coach with a " different style and philosophy, " four starters injured during the season resulting in freshman starters, and most of all, a 9-16 season record. The mids were perpetually hampered by injuries, as guard David Brooks, the leading scorer during the previous season, broke his wrist before the first game even began. In the fourth game of the season, center John Geshay, who had finished right behind Brooks in scoring the year before, injured his knee and dropped out for the remainder of the season. In January, starting guard and leading scorer Chuck Green was forced to leave the team for academic reasons. He was followed shortly by forward Rich Davidson, with a broken wrist. The injuries were highlighted by Navy ' s severe lack of depth. The season ended with Captain Kevin Cotherman the only remaining firstie. Leading scorer Dave Brooks who averaged 10.8 points per game, was a youngster while the second and third leading scorers, Rob Romaine and Gary Price were plebes. Furthermore, Price, with 7.3 rebounds per games, was also Navy ' s leading rebounder. He was closely followed by second classman Myron Simons. In their best-played game of the season. Navy surprised American Univer- sity by pulling off a 90-77 upset. The only other major bright spot was the season finale in which Navy defeated Army (again) in overtime. Navy trailed by as many as seven points in a game that kept everyone on the edge of their seats. The team, however, went on to take a 68-66 victory.

With this record, the team again finished as the fifth ranked team in the nation. The mids got off to a great start by running up six straight wins on its annual swing through the Northeast. The season continued with wins over Lehigh and Ston ' brook as the tally of wins ran to eight straight. It wasn ' t until the ninth match that the big competition began; the mids were unable to withstand the successive blows of powerhouse teams Princeton, Yale, and Harvard. The sights were aimed toward Army early as the team put in extra practice sessions hoping to put the cadets in their place permanently. As it turned out, there was no problem; the mids dished out nine sound whippings. With this victory. Navy had now won eleven of its last twelve encounters with Army, including the last five. The final match of the season proved no challenge to the Navy nine as they completed another winning season under the direction of retiring Coach Bob Bayliss. Team captain Jon Wall modestly gave all the credit to " Coach Bayliss who properly prepared us, and to the hard work of the team. " He expects an equal or better season in ' 82, but a fifth place national ranking, an 11-4 record, and a victory over Army would be tough to beat!

Although they didn ' t finish with a perfect season, the team had more wins in the sport than any other Navy squad in the past twenty years. Following an initial loss to top ranked Harvard, the mids rebounded to win the next six straight. Crucial winners in these meets were I ' irstie Vince Smarjesse in the one and three meter diving events, youngster Joe Murphy in the freestyle sprints, and plebe Al Jaegars in the distance freestyle events. These two swimmers teamed up with Andy Griffith and Paul Healy to win several meets for the team by taking the final event of the competition, the 400 yard freestyle relay. The 72-41 trouncing of Army was a more-than-welcome victory. Not only was it won in Army ' s own pool, but also it matched the 1960-61 .season record of nine victories. Best of all, it was another display of Navy ' s superiority over Hudson High. After concluding a commendable regular season. Navy swimmers took seventh place at the Eastern Seaboard Swimming Championships. This finish included a fifth place finish in I -meter diving by Smarjesse and a new academy record in the 200-yard IM by Jaegars, who took ninth in the event. The outstanding swimmer of the season was Joe Murphy, who not only finished first in the 50 and 100-yard freestyle events at Easterns, but also won all but one of his fourteen 50-yard sprints during the season. The entire team is looking for that kind of record for itself as it anxiously awaits next season.

' « 4 First Team All Americans: Syd Abernathy and Mike McLaughlin m r r t h, 410 Sailing Yawls The summer of 1980 was marked by two important accomplishments by members of the yawl team. Two yawls, skippered by midshipmen Thomas O ' Brien and Mark Pallin, were sailed for cruise credit from Annapolis to Bermuda, the Bahamas, and then to Florida returning along the East Coast of the U. S. They sailed a very successful cruise with stops at many important Naval installations along the way. Bill Davidson and his crew on Intrepid sailed a fine race from Annapolis to Bermuda and finished high. This was one of the best finishes a yawl crew had been able to manage in recent years. A hectic fall racing schedule began for the yawls with the start of the 1980-81 academic year. Victors of some of the Bay races included the skippers Charlie Kineckc, Jack Doughty, and Mark Pallin Nick Madigan and his crew won the MacMillan Cup which is symbolic of the intercollegiate big boat championship for the East Coast. Though the season ended in late November, the upkeep and maintenance of the boats continued through the winter months. .411 of the yawls received new and improved equip- ment and deck layouts for the spring season. The spring racing season opened with Nick Madigan and his crew winning the Kennedy Cup for a second consecutive time. With the approach of a hectic summer racing and cruising schedule, the spring season was devoted mainly to offshore sail training. f i t ' r if- With the addition of Bay Bea, a 46-fooi Chance-designed sloop, the Naval Academ Sailing Squadron gained another fine boat to its collection of offshore yachts. In competition, the Class A craft took first in the Rhode River Spring Series and placed third in the Chesapeake Annual Spring Regatta. The Naval Academy ' s fleet of Luder ' s Yawls perform admirably during the Spring season. The yawls took first in the Service .Academy Yawl Championship keeping the Intrepid Trophy for the second consecutive year. The boats also captured first in the National Collegiate Large Yacht Championship. With that victory, the team kept the Kennedy Cup which it uon in 1980. The women of the Naval Academy Sailing Squadron continued their fine contribution to the Academy ' s excellent program. Early in the season the women placed second in the Women ' s Intersec- tional Regatta hosted by Tufts. The women sailors lost to Boston University. The women went on to capture first place in both the Women ' s District Dinghy Championship and the Intercollegiate Yacht Racing Association of North America Women ' s Championship. These finishes reaffirmed the superiority of Navy sailing over other collegiate competition. ■ The Naval Academy Sailing Squa- dron completed its season with an impressive array of victories and second place finishes. In dinghy competition. Navy took second in both the Moore Regatta and the Trux Umstcd Regatta. In the Moore, Navy came in a clo.se second to eventual winner Merchant Marine in a field of fourteen teams. In the latter competition, the .squadron failed to protect a one point lead and lost to Tufts University. Navy lost again to Merchant Marine in the Owen Trophy Regatta (Old Guard Trophy) but came in a close second in the regatta. The Naval Academy Dinghy Squadron finished their spring competition with victories in the District Team Racing Championships, which qualified the team for nationals; the Arm Mule Regatta: the Interservice Dinghy Championship (Bryant Moore Trophy); and the America ' s Trophy Regatta. Their season continued with a fourth place finish at the North American Intercollegiate Dinghy Championship. At the end of the season, the Naval Academy was awarded its fifth consecu- tive Leonard M. Fowle Trophy for the best combined performance in the five Intercol- legiate Yacht Racing Association of North America Championships after the team racing competition, the final event of the intercollegiate season, was concluded here at the Academ l i|r i The Varsity Heavyweight Crew posted a 5-1 dual race record in 1981. Navy ' s one regret, as in 1980. was a narrow defeat (by less than two seconds in both cases) to powerful Harvard University. The Eastern Sprints Regatta saw Navy ' s second varsity (the best Nav has seen in five years) place second. The varsity eight, after not qualifying for the grand finals due to a detrimental boat crab, redeemed themselves by handil winning the petite finals. Navy ' s fall season proved to be a dazzling success. The heavyweight oars- men gained confidence and momentum which left them hungry for the spring racing season. After winning the 1980 Intercollegiate Rowing Association Cham- pionships for the first time in fifteen years, the Heavyweight Eight devastated the U. S. Olympic Eight, two West German National Team Eights, and the Harvard University Varsity Eight as they captured the prestigious Head of the Charles Fall Regatta (a first in Navy history.) A crew is total devotion by nine- individuals to a cohesive, unyeilding unit There is no place for individuals. The four seasons include: (1) a fall distance racing season: (2) a winter training period including intense weight lifting, running, rowing in tanks, and rowing on test machines; (3) a spring sprint race season in which dual races and sprint regattas are the highlight: and (4) a summer period during which each individual designs his own form of training depending on the boat he has set his sights on competing in The cohesiveness built by this unique band of brothers has become characteris- tic of Crew at Navy. The 1980-81 Heavyweight Crew Team finished second to Cornell in the 1981 I.R.A. Champion- ship. Co-captains were Tim Griffith and Daniel Lyons.

This year was no exception. With ideas in their heads and money in their pockets, the 1981 editors set out to produce the finest yearbook the Naval Academy had ever seen. Editor selection was held late in the 1979-80 academic year. Stuart Swetland was selected as the Editor-in-Chief with the important positions of Associate Editor and Layout Editor given to first class Albert Thomas (AD and Christopher Cooke (Chris) respectively. Jon Messinger (J. D.) and Richard Winslow (Rick) took care of the business and scheduling end of the book, while Class President Dennis Sawyer ran advertising. Most of the ideas for the actual appearance of the ' 81 book evolved slowly. Input from roommat es, friends, officers, as well as the editors shaped and molded the 1981 book as you see it today. Financial restrictions caused major decisions such as the cover appearance and color usage to go to unofficial committees for resolution. Most of the day to day decisions on the actual content were made by Layout chief Chris Cooke. The photography was almost exclusively handled by Associate Editor Al Thomas. Despite all the obstacles, the 1981 Lucky Bag represents perhaps the greatest amount of effort ever put into the production of an annual for USNA. In addition to publishing all of the first class formal photos in color, all of the first class also had a color informal photo published. This was no small feat as well as a Lucky Bag first. Back from the 1979 Lucky Bag is a " calendar " section which depicts events and brigade life. Another unique addition to the 1981 book was the presence of a " company logo " for each company in the underclass section. Few midshipman realize the amount of work that goes into the publishing of a yearbook. Those that do realize the amount of dedication and sacrifice required from a staff to meet deadlines (or almost meet them) and get the job done. The bottom line is the Lucky Bag organization is too big, too complex, and its mission too important to be called an ECA. With a budget approaching $130,000, it would be more appropriate to call the Lucky Bag a business which is run by the staff during their spare time. While the editorial decisions are not always perfect, they are indeed the wishes of the editors as they perceive the wants and needs of the brigade. The Lucky Bag still being run by mids is testimony to the serious attitude which the staff has towards it. 1 il Il ' . : V ' » V ■ The U.S. Naval Academy Drum and Bugle Corps is an organization which is dedicated to support of the Brigade of Midshipmen. The Corps provides music at daily formations, formal parades, and other Brigade activities. In addition to its normal routine, the Corps represents the Naval Academy by performing around the United States in both marching shows and concerts. These shows include performances at Navy football games, as well as for such professional football teams as the Pitts- burgh Steelers, Dallas Cowboys, Baltimore Colts, and Washington Redskins. The Corps in recent years has also participated in Mardi Gras in New Orleans, the Gimble ' s Thanksgiving Day Parade in Philadelphia, and the Presidential Inaugural Parade. Annual performances include the " Serenade in Brass " in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and the Apple Blossom Festival in Winchester, Virginia. Special appearances this year have included the Cherry Blossom Festival in the nation ' s capital, and the Dixie Stinger in Baltimore, Maryland. Each year the Corps competes in the interservice drum and bugle corps competi- tion against the U.S. Air Force Academy and U.S. Coast Guard Academy on the Navy-Air Force football weekend. This year the D B returned from Christmas leave a few days early to go on a five day tour of Virginia and Tennessee. The 135 member USNA Drum and Bugle Corps is composed entirely of brass and percussion instruments. The incredible sound that is produced combined with the spectacle of colorful flags and changing formations results in a musical exhibition unmatched by conventional marching bands. iil ♦ ' -c ' ' ' » -. . % -» " - " ■-. ? :»:; _ r ' vr w r - i. ' m The Masqueraders Present: nt:i The Three Musketeers The Masqueraders, the Naval Academy ' s thespians, staged " The Three Musketeers " in the fall. The show ran for six nights and enjoyed full houses during each performance. The Masqueraders is composed of midshipmen actors and actresses as well as a lighting crew, stage crew, costume designers, and civilian members. Each year the group presents a drama in the fall. In addition to their own production, many of the Masqueraders perform in the Glee Club ' s spring musical. " Fiddler on the Roof " was the Glee Club ' s musical this year. »-r i ' i r " j ' f ' y » ' y e Glee Club Presents: .o :r-. ' i . V kv iV ■♦ ' F v- Fiddler on the noo ih ' i X. ' Tm ' " ' ' Ah Cannoneers As the referee signals yet another Navy touchdown, his action is punctuated with the deafening blast of a naval gun fired in salute. The eight members of the Brigade Cannoneers swarm over the 1865 Dahlgren Boat Howitzer and in less than a minute the cannon is ready to fire for the extra point. Since 1967, the tradition of cannon fire at Naval Academy home football games has been kept by a small contingent of spirited professionals. Only two people from the plebe class are selected as members to the cannoneers and they remain on for all four years. During the past year the cannoneers supported the varsity football team at all their home games. They also followed the team to the Meadowlands for their contest against the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame. They supported the 150 pound football team as they battled against Army at home. And, of course, it was the Naval Academy cannon that filled Veterans Stadium with smoke and sound as the Big Blue destroyed the whoops from West Point. Naval Academy y Foreign Affairs Conference The 1981 Naval Academy Foreign Affairs Conference, entitled WORLD RESOURCE DIPLOMACY AND UNITED STATES FOREIGN POLICY, dealt with one of the most important issues of our time: How can the United States insure access to vitally needed resources in the years to come? For the past twenty years the United States Naval Academy Foreign Affairs Conference has been an annual forum where exemplary students in political science, economics, and international relations have gathered to discuss topics of national and international scope. The themes selected for the conference have varied over a wide spectrum of political and international affairs, with the overall objective being to further the education of delegates. The conference is an academic forum which has been praised for its high standard of scholastic excellence and political awareness. Last year, over 200 delegates from 130 colleges across the nation participated in NAFAC. This year, about the same number and caliber of students attended. M The Navy Cheerleades work in conjunction with the Brigade Activities Committee to promote spirit within the Brigade. They cheered at pep rallies, team send-offs, varsity football games, 150 pound football games, and at Navy basketball games. " • Cheerleaders M Black Studies Club One of the major problems faced by minority students at the Naval Academy has been adjusting to the environment of the mstitution. Throughout the year, the Black Studies Club combined their efforts with the Candidate Guidance Office, the Human Relations Committee, and the Black Studies Committee to effectively counteract the problem. The club assisted the chain of command in identifying midshipmen in academic difficulty and encouraging these individuals to seek extra instruction. The Black Studies Club also stimulated interest and enhanced the understanding of the roots of black Americans by sponsoring distinguished speakers, artists, musicians, and enter- tainers. The roster of distinguished guests included Morgan State University Gospel Choir; Reverend Jones from Bethany Baptist Church, N. Y.; OHfunmilayo Dance Troupe from Baltimore, MD; Mr. Al Bumbry and Mr. Elrod Hendricks from the Baltimore Orioles; Mr. David Brown and his Musical Production; and the Harlem Boys Choir. Each of these prominent black artists highlighted and contributed various posi- tive attributes of the black culture to the brigade of midshipmen. This year the Black Studies Club successfully achieved their goal of uniting midshipmen from varied backgrounds and easing their assimilation into the Brigade. - " s The Naval Academy Sport Parachute Club is one of the Academy ' s most popular and exciting extracurriculars. The club is unique among ECA ' s in that its members participate in an activity that is not only an internationally recognized competitive sport, but in one that is also a valuable military skill. The Sport Parachute Club competes annually in the Tri-Service Academy Parachute Competition, the National Col- legiate Parachuting Championships, and the West Point Invitational Parachute Meet. The competitions are in addition to the club ' s more enjoyable function of serving as the Naval Academy ' s airborne ambassadors at local carnivals, festivals, and sporting events. The club ' s officer representative is Lt. Fred Bauer and the president was Midship- man Mike Kennedy, ' 81. , f ¥ ■PL ' , The Log Under editor Walter Edward Carter, Jr. the Z.o magazine has seen its finest two years ever. Not only has the Log eclipsed all previous years, but also far outclassed its counterparts at Army and Air Force. The Lot staff worked hard this year to produce excellent material. The Art Department, coedited by Doug Weather- ford and Rock Gawne, was solid this year with humor from Ward Carroll, Chris Borcik, Bob Crigger, Ray Husa, and the old veteran Jerry Carson. There was also some outrageously bad art from the multi- talented Snircus. Humor was always the Log ' s strong point and the decayed brains of Dennis Murphy and Bob Womer created some really memorable literary monstrosities. The hard-hitting Sports Department was led by John Paul who kept the Brigade on the inside track with Navy Sports. Photography was handled by Don Hudson and Circulation was ruled with a strong arm by Bob Schulze. This year ' s Log kept the Brigade going with the right attitude and proper outlook on Navy life. Hopefully, it made life a little easier for all midshipmen. 510 Reef Points Trident Calendar Probably the most seen calendar in a midshipman ' s room is the Trident. Edited by midshipmen, the Trident is a collection of photos and cartoons which are keyed to the seasons and events of the year. The 1981 Tident had a gold (mustard) cover and the usual pages for each week of the year. Photography for the calendar is solicited from the Brigade and also photographers for the Lucky Bag and Log. Cartoons appear for each week to help mids laugh and help make the week go faster. I Reef Points, the handbook of the Brigade of Midshipmen, is revised and amended annually by the Reef Points staff. Often referred to as the " Plebe ' s Bible, " Reef Points is one of the most hated objects of Plebe Summer. Few midshipmen look at Reef Points after Parents ' Weekend their plebe year. Yet this publication contains much important and useful information about the Naval Academy and the Navy. In addition to being a Plebe Indoctrination tool, the book provides an insider ' s view of the Academy for parents and friends of midshipmen. Reef Points contains the history of the Academy as well as information about sports, extracurricular activities, and other areas of Academy life. Scuba Club i ' The USNA Scuba Club is dedicated to promoting SCUBA diving within the Brigade of Midshipmen. Primarily a recreational activity, diving furthers the mission of the Academy by providing an activity that graduates can pursue through- out their careers. Consequently, the bulk of the Club ' s activity is directed toward organizing and teaching Basic Scuba classes. Approximately three hundred midshipmen receive their Basic Scuba Qualification Cards annually from the Club. The culmination of the course is an open water qualification dive. Successful comple- tion of the course earns a Scuba certification sanctioned by the National Association of Underwater Instructors (NAUl). In addition to qualifying interested midshipmen in Scuba diving, the Club serves experienced divers too. The Club itself functions as the only organized group of divers within the Brigade, allowing dive-oriented activities with a minimum of effort. Qualified divers may also borrow club owned SCUBA gear and purchase equipment at substantially reduced prices at the Club store in Bancroft Hall. The club offers courses on a periodic basis for qualified divers to advance their skills, leading to an instructor ' s qualification if desired. 513 iV. During the fall semester, the Basic Scuba class prepared eighty midshipmen for their qualification dive. Another class of eighty completed the basic classroom and pool instruction in the first weeks of the spring semester, in preparation for the annual Club pilgrimage to the colorful reefs and sunny beaches of Key Largo, Florida, during spring leave. The high point of club activity during the year, the Florida trip provides an opportunity for novice divers to receive their open water qualification in warm, clear water. Experienced divers can experience some of the world ' s best diving at minimal cost. Camping, diving, and cookouts make the week a very enjoyable one for all. ,1,1 ' Bridge Club iv ' ' The Big Brother Big Sister club is a voluntary service for single parent children between the ages of eight and sixteen in the Annapolis area. Members of the club provide an adult figure for the children and provide role models for them. Most important, however, is the need for the Big Brother Sister to be sensitive to the child ' s needs while acting as a confidant and friend. The club offers monthly festivities to help the children meet each other and take advantage of the many services within the Academy. Some of the parties held during the year were bowling, ice skating, Christmas Sundaes, Halloween, a film fest, and a pizza party. In the spring a trip to King ' s Dominion and a picnic were held. The club provides a community service that benefits not only community members but midshipmen. It allows the mids to help needy children while accomplishing their main mission: having fun. 516 Big Brothers and Sisters ni , The Protestant Chapel Choir is one of three choirs that sing every Sunday morning in the Naval Academy Chapel. The group is approximately 80 members strong, and is the only choir consisting solely of men. Most people recognize it as the choir which sits in front of the Chapel for the Protestant service. The main purpose of the Chapel Choir is to provide musical leadership for the Protestant services each Sunday. This is done through the singing of hymns and prepared anthems during the services. In addition to singing in the Chapel, the Choir travels two or three weekends per year to various cities on the East Coast to provide music for church services and to represent the Naval Academy. The Choir has sung at the Madison Avenue Presbyter- ian church in New York City, St. David ' s Episcopal Church in the Philadelphia area following the Army-Navy game, and the River Road Baptist Church in Richmond, Va. The Choir also sings Sunday afternoon services in the Baltimore - Washington area. The highlight of each year for the Choir is the annual presentation of Handel ' s Messiah. The combined choirs of the Naval Academy and Hood College perform this beautiful work of art each Christmas season before full houses at both schools. This year the Protestant Chapel Choir combined with the Goucher College Choir to perform the Easter section of the Messiah. The Chapel Choir, under the fine direction of Mr. Barry Talley, performs a variety of sacred music throughout the year. The Choir ' s repertoire includes traditional men ' s arrangements from the classical English, French, and German Renaissance and Baroque periods, as well as traditional Russian arrangements, American spirituals and hymns, and more modern sacred material. lh Choi oirs One ol the lesser known extracur- ricular activities at the Naval Academy is the Military Studies Association. The MSA, or as it is more commonly called the Wargamer ' s Club, is an activity which seeks to enhance the professional know- ledge of midshipmen through conflict simulation. Members of the MSA have access to a large amount of club owned gaming equipment to help pursue their hobby. They may use either commercial games which recreate famous military campaigns of the past, present, and even the possible future, or they may choose from the huge assortment of miniatures and form their own scenarios on the club ' s sand table. The MSA does not confine its activities to club members. Every spring the MSA hosts NAVCON, a wargamer ' s convention which invites wargaming clubs from the area as well as local merchants to gather together to trade ideas and experiences while enjoying their hobby. In addition the MSA attempts a yearly pilgrimage to West Point to match wits with its Army rival. The Military Studies Association is a unique activity which enhances professional development while at the same time having fun, learning from the past by recreating it, and often changing the outcome. Let ' s see now, suppose the South had won the Civil War . . . | • ' M , ' iik The Officers ' Cfiristian Fellowsfiip seeks to exfialt tfie Lord Jesus Cfirist ffirougfi ffie fellowsfiip, encouragement, and training of CFiristian officers so tfiey may be equipped to minister to all ranks in the Armed Forces. This national organization provides a common base of Christian fellowship and ministry throughout the Armed Services. Here at the Naval Academy there are a variety of exciting activities open to midshipmen and officers. Annual activities are the Labor Day Conference, the Army-Navy Banquet, the Army-Navy winter sports party, and the Graduation Banquet. These are times of meeting new people, sharing Christian faith, and growing in spiritual way. The weekly OCF meetings provide midshipmen with the opportunity for regular fellowship, worship, and Christian teaching. However, the most effective areas of ministry are small company bible studies led by midshipmen. The OCF offers guidelines and encouragement in establish- ing these studies. Organized semester long studies called " equipping groups " are also provided which cover many of the foundation stones of Christian life. The OCF offers weekly times of fun filled activities which include afternoon of touch football, picnics and hayrides, post football game parties, Saturday night pillow fights and games, and even a good ole Christmas tree decorating. " w Ik !? . - With a new senior marine officer and new officer representative, the Semper Fidelis Society attempted to get more involved in bringing different aspects of tlie Marine Corps to its members. The primary task this year was to get the society doing more than in the past. This was accomphshed by training the members in rappelling techniques, how to fire and care for the M-16, and various lectures on MOS ' s, career opportunities in the Corps, and the view of the Corps by three senior non-commissioned officers. Semper Fidelis Society is a club that is oriented toward the Marine Corps and helping those in the Brigade interested in the Marine Corps to learn more about it. 535 History Club Ik Boasting a membership of over 500 midshipmen, the History Club is one of the largest and most successful extracurricular activities at the Naval Academy. The primary goal of the Club is to enhance the study of history through methods other than those found in the classroom. This involves bringing in occasional guest lecturers, showing historical movies, publishing a newsletter for distribution within the Brigade, and making field trips to historical sites in the area. Throughout the year the History Club sponsored a total of eight guest speakers. Well-known historians such as Allan Millett, author of Semper Fidelia: History of the United States Marine Corps, and Dr. Russell Wood, Professor of Latin American History at Johns Hopkins University, spoke at the Academy to club members. Former Ohio State Football Coach and amateur historian. Woody Hayes entertained and informed the midshipmen on the " Battle of Midway. " The lecturers spoke on topics ranging from life onboard the doomed German battleship " Bismarck " to the origins of the space program. Every Sunday afternoon during the academic year the History Club showed a movie for any interested midshipmen. Such movies as Patton, The Lion in Winter, and Mutiny on the Bounty were shown as part of the series. Dealing with historical topics, the movies provided an entertaining way to learn more about various aspects of history that were presented, and more than likely forgotten in the classroom. The most successful venture of the Club this year was a field trip taken during the first semester to several Civil War battle sites. The group visited Bull Run, Antietam, Harper ' s Ferry, and Gettysburg, with Associate Professor Symonds provid- ing in-depth explanations of the battles associated with each location. Midshipman First Class Eric Stagliano was this year ' s President of the History Club. Midshipman Second Class Lang Reese was the Vice President while Midshipman Second Class Rick Dempsey served as its Secretary. -ti -v r v " - " ' -. WRNV i . ' tial (.:■ oupi i Bull t- ■Mty, and Cea issoc ifsa-i- laboni ol 15 ' ' l |«S.. ' - Radio station WRNV undertook the difficult task of renovation in 1980-81. Witfi tfie fielp of the administration and especially the Alumni Association, WRNV was able to purchase badly needed materials and pieces of equipment, including a new transmitter to replace the aging one previously used. With the unending enthusiasm and aid of Assistant Station Manager Paul Limbacher, the job ran smoothly. Chief Engineer Bill Cheney and his assistants were continually tested to the limits of their electrical ability for the task of rewiring the station. Programming Director Tom Hart- line worked at great length to prepare a consistent and acceptable show format. Music Director Mark Mervine, with the assistance of Jeff Creswell, worked diligently to completely reorganize WRNV ' s extensive record library. First Lt. Bill Patterson along with Rick Greene and the help of many others were able to rebuild the radio station from the ground up. Business Manager Brett Peloquin and Business Secretary Lil Ramirez were instrumental in acquiring the funds needed to accomplish this extensive project. 527 The Brigade Social Affairs Committee is responsible for tfie organization of many of the social events held during the year. Working with the Social Director, Mrs. Baysinger, the BSAC organized the successful formal balls held in the fall, winter, and spring. Other events were the International Ball in the Spring, ' 81 Night, the Army-Navy Informal, the Army-Navy Festivities, and the weekend hops. i, 528 " ' ' v ' 5» Women ' s Glee Club M ' i ' ' Bowling season runs from October to March. Two twelve team leagues with representation from all four classes competed on Monday and Wednesday nights. The leagues competed with a handicapping system so that everyone played on a relatively equal basis. The club supports an intercollegiate traveling team that bowls against local colleges. Tryouts for the team are held annually. Four bowlers returned from last year ' s team to join six new starters. The team was strong this year competing against tougher competition. After winning first place in their intercol- legiate league last year, the team looked forward to another successful season. However, the team was not that fortunate as the D. C. Intercollegiate League folded. The team pursued their own schedule playing new teams for the first time. The first two matches against Howard University and Catonsville Community College were easy victories. The next match was dropped to Howard due to poor bowling. The next two matches were lost to Essex Community College and Maryland. After rebounding from their slump with a win against Catonsville in their sixth match, the team lost again to Essex. Their most important match was the annual Inter-Service Academy Tournament at West Point. Both the Merchant Marine Academy and Army were opponents. One of the team ' s strongest efforts of the year gave Navy a victory over Merchant Marine but a loss to Army. .M M H .1 fAf iaA 532 Pep Band The U.S. Naval Academy Pep Band is an organization composed of midshipmen dedicated to promoting spirit within the Brigade through music. The band is open to midshipmen of all classes who are willing to volunteer their free time on weekends and selected weekdays to practice and provide support for Navy athletics. Among the band ' s list of performances are: Navy football, basketball, and lacrosse games, pep rallies, Navy team send-offs to away games, the Alumni Banquet (Homecoming Weekend), and the Maryland Seafood Festival. The Pep Band travels to several sports contests outside Maryland to provide participating Navy teams the support and spirit they deserve while offering the members of the band the opportunity to travel. Additionally, the Pep Band serves to promote relations between the communi- ty and the U.S. Naval Academy. The 1980-81 Pep Band was under the direction of Midshipman Mark Rodgers of Atlanta, Ga., Midshipman Artie Piatt of Atlanta, Ga., and Midshipman Keith Ayres. 533 h ' ,y The USNA Karate Club is an ECA in which several dedicated mids train in the ancient martial art of Tang Soo Do. The master instructor o{ the club, Mr. Abby Bartlinski, a fourth degree black belt of this art, comes to the academy weekly to instruct midshipmen. During the week the Karate Club holds organized workouts daily. These workouts are often very demanding. All midshipmen that participate in the Karate Club do so in their spare time except for two to six members who are allowed to miss intramurals for the purpose of instructing junior belts. During these workouts members train in fighting, self defense techniques, and kata (forms). The Karate Club also participates in five to eight open tournaments during the school year. ' Members usually do well in these meets with Navy taking home their share of the trophies. This year marks the first year in which the club will compete at the intercollegiate level on a regular basis. The most exciting of the competitions of the past year was the Service Academy Karate Tournament in which Navy fought Army and the Merchant Marine Academy. There have been two of these tournaments in the past with Navy and Army tied at one victory apiece in the series. The 1980 competition was by far the most exciting yet; hard fighting and grueling competition made each match a battle. Led by Dave Spangler ' 81, the club president, the Karate Club succeeded in defeating Army and Merchant Marine bringing the series total to 2-1-0. K Karate Club iAA ;. " VS " VTNA 537 The USNA Skeet and Trap Club, which has just completed its fourth year, continues to represent the Brigade at intercollegiate, as well as local, shoots. Though only totalling twelve members, the Club maintains the high standards expect- ed of any Navy team. Competing on all levels, the Club made an impressive showing at the National Skeet Champion- ships held in Peoria, Illinois, in 1978 and 1979. In the former year, a young Navy team placed seventh in a field of twenty-four teams. Navy has also been well-represented at the Eastern Regional Skeet and Trap Championships held yearly in Merrimac, New Hampshire. Last year Navy placed third at regionals against such rivals as Army, Yale, Dartmouth, and New Hampshire College, the host club. Although not the most visible of Navy teams, across the Severn River at the Naval Station shots fill the air and targets break (usually), as the team practices year ' round on its new field. Benefitting from the expert guidance of its Officer Representative, Cdr. Neil Koglowski, average scores continue to climb. The team expects all but two of its 1980-81 squad to return next year. Mif- u 538 Astronomy Club The Astronomy Club is affiliated with the Physics Department and though many of its members major in physics, only an interest in astronomy is required. The club serves as a vehicle for its members to use otherwise unavailable equipment to pursue interests in astronomy. The main in- strument of the astronomy club is the Physics Department ' s sixteen inch tele- scope on the roof of Michelson Hall. The telescope is available to the club members qualified in its use. Also available are a variety of smaller, portable telescopes and a lab to refurbish these instruments. Besides telescope astronomy, the club focuses on other areas of interest, including guest speakers and field trips to expose its members to the various fields in astronomy. Other activities include midshipmen-taught lessons on various topics as well as the continual qualification of members on the large telescope. With the new lab space, interests in telescope construction can also be pursued. Thus, the club serves as an outlet for serious amateurs or just weekend observers. ' l YP Squadron •VirVr V 1 I i- C.
