During finals, midshipmen bombard Tecumseh with pennies to insure at least a passing grade on the ensuing test. Tecumseh is painted every year on the following occasions; Induction Day, Plebe Parents Weekend, Army week, home football games, and for the final thirty-six days prior to graduation. r- Opening 13 Formations The Brigade has three formations every day with the exception of Sunday when only two are held. Noon and evening formations are held outside whenever it is not raining and the temperature is above 56° F, while morning quarters formation is always inside at 0730. Two battalions form in Tecumseh Court while the other four battalions form on the other terraces surrounding Bancraft Hall. Outside formations last approximately fifteen minutes and conclude with the Brigade marching into Bancroft Hall to the music of the Drum and Bugle Corps. 14 Openiog ' " ' - mw mm Opening 15 -slf ; ' ■ ■,.■ .» .- r- e- : ? .x?

' ■• ' . ' .W ' -tiV Fall Parades Formal dress parades are held on Wednesday afternoons during the fall for a few reasons. The first reason is to honor the guest reviewer. A second reason is to provide the public with a chance to see the Brigade of Midshipman as a whole, not just individuals. And the ubiquitous reason, the parades give the midsipmen a chance to compete as companies for color points. wss 212 Year wmmmfmimm Yeai 213 mki i .fr- ' v - • ' 11111111113 i laiiiiii HH M ' y pfiSi - ■ifir J Halloween at USMA affords midshipmen the opportun- ity to display their creativity and imagination as well as the chance to go trick-or-treating from door to door. Mot Just any doors; plebe doors. Trying to satisfy the sweet teeth of the upperclass can be expensive, but the plebes will have three years to collect on their initial investments. The annual costume contest is extremely competitive as is the pumpkin carving contest. 216 Year ■ n rorrestal Lectures irtain Th j(J» ' mm wmmfm Forrestal lectures are a series of talks delivered by prominent individuals to the Brigade after the evening meal two or three times each semester. The lectures are not restricted to any particular subject, but they usually pertain to the military or a worid or national event. The Forrestal lecture series began in 1970 in honor of James V. Forrestal who served as Secretary of the navy. and the first Secretary of Defense under President Truman in 1947. The purpose of Forrestal lectures is to expose midshipmen to a wide variety of viewpoints from individuals who are prominent in government, politics, sports, entertainment, journalism, and the arts. ■ ' sip mmmmm The random ringing of the fire bells at 2230 on the Thursday night prior to a home football game marks the beginning of a USriA pep rally. For some mids the bells were merely a distraction while studying, but for many others they signalled the chance to dress brashly, throw rolls of toilet paper, and yell for Pfavy ' s football team. The pep rallies were led by the cheerieaders, the pep band, and, for the first time, Mr. T. The Commandant usually spoke, and he provided inspiration to the Brigade and to the football team to strive for victory. The Washington Redskinettes were wel- comed guests at one pep rally, and they too provided a great deal of inspiration. TsT s77Fv sS» mm EP5« Army-Mavy ... In California This year for the first, and possibly the last, time the ARMY-NAVY Football Game was fought in the Rose Bowl. It was the biggest event of the year and required a lot of coordination. The entire student body of both schools had to be transported across the country, it was the largest airlift of people since World War II. Housing had to be found for over 9,000 people, and only half could be housed in hotels. The other 4,500 mids and cadets were accepted into the homes of Los Angeles area residents. Everyone enjoyed themselves, sponsors and guests. Other events in California included tours of movie studios, a night at Disneyland, trips to Tijuana, and of course there was USC. Oh, we won the football game. P 22S gii Year 227 i mmm jmmmm i p The Modern Music Committee Presents: Huey Lewis And The News . . .

For the plebes the Christmas dinner is unique because it is their first opportunity to light-up a cigar and see the combined efforts of 4,500 other cigars in the Wardroon. mm mmmmm 2 For 7 Night After two years at the Academy, the Cla89 of 1985 enter their second class year. For those that depart before the first day of academics, they return to being civihans and strive for other goals. For those who decide to stay, they will strive to complete their last two years and eventually serve their obligated five years in the Navy. For these midshipmen a special " 2 For 7 Night " party is given in Dahlgren Hall. Food and beverage is served and music is provided. The Class of ' 85 enjoy a night affair to celebrate their decision to enter the military community. i BE Summer Cruise 236 Year n« " Piii«npi Year 237 Ti a f . i » -i»-..i.. ■; .-:- Ih RWWPflPiPllPi sy ' Hp k pr F Wv ' yidj B ft ' " j J H Hr :J iSB B B ■? V ' ' ttf lsKL Tailgaters Year 239 li im-i Bm i Service Selection Service selection night is a night long awaited for by all firsties because the decision of which career path to follow becomes final. For some the decision is easy and service selection is merely a formality, but for others the decision is agonizing. Each firsty knows prior to this night what he is physically qualified to pick. For example, aspiring pilots must have perfect vision. Future submar- iners are not involved in service selection night (except for the party) because they have previously been selected for that career path. The number of billets available in each community (Air, Surface, Marines, etc.) is limited, so class standing plays a key role in determining the future of some firsties. For the class of 1984 service selection night proceeded smoothly with all but a few firsties picking the career path that they had hoped for. mmmt mJ I Vi.

For about 90 minutes the roles of the firsties and the plebes are reversed, providing the plebes the golden opportunity to " flame " on the firsties who have been training them for nine months. Al- though the activities of hundreds night vary from com- pany to company the purpose is the same; to have fun and to allow that meek, subdued plebe to don the rank of a firsty and become a screaming idiot. For the firsties who must swallow their pride briefly there is always the comfort of knowing how fast 90 minutes can pass. i I ■■■■■jj H ' fe 1 iP Jn 1 i ' i l fr fv 1 1 i H J 1 245 55 5?

Larry ' s run-ins with various and sundry officers created a lot of laughs as well as heartburn. Larry was the adventurous type deciding to major in EE. Because of it he soon became a major in all-nighters as well. There wasn ' t a day or night gone by that you couldn ' t find hirn in the wardroom with a book in band or m the rack recovering. As it turned out, all the short hours of study and long hours of rack paid off as Larry now carries this experience into the nuclear navy. Along with that Larry also brings with him a fiery commitment to the Lord and a strong sense of principle. May Larry always succ eed in everything he does for His glory. We wish him the best. Craig R. Bertolett Jr. Bert St. Louis, Mo. EAS Navy Air Bert came to USNA via the NAPS route. He must have been there to get the partying out of his system because he sure didn ' t need the academics. After breezing through NAPS, fiUing his belly, and his bank account he came to good old USNA. Plebe year was no problem at all for Bert He joined the sailing team to maintain his top physical shape and to avoid the upperclass. The only books Bert opened that year or youngster year had centerfolds. They aroused him but not intellectually. For youngster cruise Bert chose a yawl in order to catch the rays and maintain his already impressive physique. Tobogganing with Dr. D and the boys convinced both Bert and myself that winter sports are too dangerous. Second class summer was another breeze for Bert. He proved that man can exist on beer and chili alone. Second class year marked a new era in Bert ' s life. He was forced to open his first book and study. To go along with his new found books. Bert found his way to Dahlgren and Hood College. Hood, however, changed Bett ' s life. He changed from a party animal and womanizer to faithful Bert the future husband. Yes, much to the displeasure of thousands of waiting women, Bert met his present steady, Sue. Hood College became his official weekend address. First class summer proved to be another good time for Bert. He found himself in Germany for a month to study European partying at the school ' s expense. First class year has been even better than the first three for Bert. With Sue now living in Annapolis. Bert was forced to change his weekend address once again. Pensacola is next on Bert ' s list and we wish him the best of luck. Stay the same and keep in touch.

He also discovered that Kool-Aid was still as good at parties as when he was a kid- Tbe Coast Guard Academy was honored by his presence for a while as he continued bis pursuit of long study hours and ridiculously high grades closer to home. Bv the end of that third year, he realized that mid ' s sisters were people too. and his little MG logged more miles to and from Va. Beach than an RX-7 that lived there- A disciple of Rickover from the start. Steve overwhelmed Marine Engineering to become one of the few to remove any suspense from the dreaded interviews. The Nukes are definitely gaining someone who plans to contribute both inside and outside of bis submarines. REj Patrick E. Buckley Buck Vienna, Virginia Operations Analysis, Na y Pilot Buck comes from a Navy family, and it was only natural that he should wind up at USNA being a third generation member of this glorious institution. Buck laughed bis way through Plebe Summer and was always able to crack up the firsties with bis irrepressible grin. Academics were not part of Buck ' s vocabulary plebe year, or any year in fact. He soon found friends in Quatts. Vinnie. and Murph, and from then on bis antics were covered up by his first class mentors. Buck never ceased to amaze the boys on the weekends when a car full of girls would come by and whisk him away for the night. He loved his liberty, and rarely returned on time for taps, usually because he found the wall and a few too many beers in his way. Youngster vear saw Buck living with Louie and Chris: a room destined for destruction. Capt. and Mrs. B. always made tailgaters interesting for the bovs providing them with much food and many good times. Buck gave up the weekend hunting ritual with the boys deciding instead to rejuvenate himself in Jean ' s arms. It ' s OK, Buck, she ' s old enough now. The Army excursions to Philly in the wagon are unforgettable to us all. Buck also took ij.s madness to the Rugby field where he excelled both during the game and afterwards at the parties: can you say " boat party ' " Buck started the Boys ' Porsche Club, eventually dragging Suki and Bonkers in with him. Buck owes money to every bank on the East Coast, but he plans on making a million as a P-3 pilot. Fly high, buddy!!! Pat, Chris, Louie. Separately they came, together they were, forever they will be.

Aside from sex, be managed to devote his time to other hobbies such as scuba, painting, and weight Ufting. Freshman year proved to be a year of fruBtration; Jumpin Joe could vouch for that Ab a youngster, Kevin showed his streak of ambition by switching his major from oceanography to physics (later becoming the resident physic ' s expert). Youngster year was a mixture of fun. and wore fun - crutches up Blake ' s — , rubber bands in Norv ' s mouth. Vicks birthday party, and living with his buddies B.R., N.L., and M.M. Second class year was a dark period in Kevin ' s life which deserves no mention. Finally, during First class year, Kev showed bis true colors. A new man because of hia engagement to Lynne. he strived to become the best. He proved that work and play go hand in hand by representing 84 a class secretary as well as attaining hia four year goal of becoming Fun One Company Commander.

John ' s next two vears were highly goal-oriented during which he painstakingly searched for wavs not to studv. and how to beat anyone and everyone at anything. John ' s youngster year brought him a new set of roomies and even more varied study hour activities. As the year progressed John became intimately familiar with the admin-conduct system, as a small demolitions operation blew up in bis face and be learned old Seals never get out of shape. And so the restriction began Second class year, the restriction continued and John realized he had bad enough. An attitude change was in order John redirected bis efforts ever so slightly to being more professional, ie. not getting caught as much. John found the work load about as difficult with second class lacademics as he did the previous vears, a firm believer in the old motto " 2.0 and go " . First class year arrived and John found himself in a position of shall we say " responsibility " His weekends were occupied with visits to all the girls who found him cute — nose, ears and all — right.

Let ' s just say that he became the only Junior to take more weekends than the Seniors. He was just checking up on Sharon who was now enrolled at American U- Later. Sharon moved to Annapolis and we saw even less of Lance than before. Nevertheless. Lance was active within the Brigade as Alpha Co- Cdr. over the summer, and as Batt Cdr. during the fall of his senior year. Lance then discovered that the marginal benefits of Air were not as great as those of Nuke Power, and thus he surprised us all by going Subs.

Being from that Southwest stock, few plebes failed to learn to fear, of avoiding his large frame, his deep imposing speech, and his threatening demean- or. No one can deny the prudence of avoiding Blake ' s nrath when the glassy -eyed expression is seen on his face We wish Blake the best in hia future, a friend always. SKB Glen R.

After three prep schools in three years Scooter finally made it on sheer determination and a talent for soccer. Plebe year saw Rip Van Romero log more hours in the rack than your average youngster- Scooter made many friends, too . . mostly firsties. By youngster year Glen had established his motto that " older women make easier lovers " - Also, he was all but a resident at Franny O ' s. In fact. Scooter enjoyed Annapolis so much that be spent all his summers there. Over four years Glen has probably had less summer leave than he had in a single Christmas break.

By Second-Class year, while armed with the two force member, Elrod was well on bis way to becoming a quiche-killer Elrod was often spotted m bars, decked out m leather, jeans, and high-tops, slamming brews and cavorting with women. Elrod spent his cruise time perfecting hia sleeping, drinking, and sexual education. Elrod knew by the beginning of First-Claas year that Nuclear Power was the only way to go. This was aided by his love of fast cars, expensive women, and leather Although a serious blowout kept Elrod from continuing to lift weights, he kept the 50 pounds he had gained by working out. The Thrift Inn will never forget when Eldrod, the Mayor. Dave-0. Dean-0. and Ayer buddy Pbilliam painted the town red land a little yellow ' !

Among other unusual things, you will find a very expensive desk stapler in the box - be sure to ask the story behind this. If you are staying the night, be sure to remind Linda to brush her teeth, or else she will remember at some odd hour in the early morning and you will wake up to see her brushing them.

Dave bought a gorgeous Austm-Healy for first class year and totaled it before the new year arrived Since it was the fourth car Dave had totaled he decided to give them up. He went out and bought his dream machine. A brand new Harley -Davidson that weighs more than your average import car. Dave was never a slouch for having a good time and a clogged sink and a bush under a certain bridge can attest to that fact. He claimed he got sea sick on his Belgian Foreign Exchange Cruise but 31 pints of beer in one night in heavy seas may have contributed to his illness. Dave ' s choices in women have often caused me anxiety, fortunately he is not planning on marriage any time soon. Dave will always be remembered for his different attitudes.

Bond Bondo San Bernadino, California Computer Science, Surface Line Bonda came to USNA after a year at Cal State. For the first two years here, he devoted most of his time to studies and day-dreaming of his fiancee back home in San Bernardino. About this time, Bondo saw the light and found that East Coast girls could be just as much fun as West Coast girls, and broke his romantic ties to California. Hondo ' s social Ufe blossomed, and soon his ' San Bernardino Shuffle ' became the hit from Annapolis to Georgia. Spring Break second class year saw Bondo playing the tourist in Florida. With camera in hand running shoes on, and a newly found sunburn, he assaulted Florida. No one could keep up with Byron, his stomach was better than a clock, and we made sure he got three meals to keep him happy The rambling spirit had gotten into Byron though, and it was off to the far east for l c cruise. Japan was an educational experience for Byron, and Subic Bay was a physical one. Although Bondo cut loose during his travels, back at USNA he was always an easy going guy. Byron could be found many a day working on a favorite model, and we ' ll never forget his galactic fleet which grew and grew and . . . Byron bad time for much more than modeling though, and was always eager to help anyone with academic problems as be was a whiz with the books. When the Nukes started chasing Byron for Service Selection, he found a quick solution to bis problem. Who else would have told a Captain that Submariners weren ' t cool?! Successful both professionally and in academics, Byron will always be remembered as a hard worker. Bondo always knew he wanted to be a Surface Line Officer and will be a great asset to the Surface Navy. Good luck and God bless to a good roommate and a great friend. JBN TDM Alex T. Casimes Aldo Seattle, Washington Systems Engineer, Surface Line Aldo came to the " uncoUege " after a year of prep school and a year of real college. He was a service brat and claims his current hometown as Seattle. Washington. Al fell from singledom a bit earlier than the average mid and is also one of the honored few that retained the same girl for all four years of his " controlled happiness " . He also has the unique situation of being outranked by his lovely fiancee for she is a 2nd Lt. in the Army (I guess Army isn ' t all bad). Although Al will not be getting married in the yard, be will be getting married only three days after graduation. Plebe year, Alex got a reputation with the upperclass in our company for punching a second class during a raid on his room. But even though he wasn ' t a smash hit with the upperclass, he was popular with bis room- mates. Alex, being a staunch Greek, has an inbred love for food and always brought back his homecooked specialties from his fiancee ' s house. Youngster year Al was a hard pedaling member of the bicycle club " Team Navy " . He was also a dedicated member in good standing of his favorite ECA. the MSA club, for three years. Finally, in his first class year he became a loyal member of the Shakey ' s pizza club with bis own monogrammed table at the pizza parlor. Aldo came in wanting to fly but fate would dictate otherwise, and soon be lost his 20 20 vision. So Al decided to go surface line, the surface fleet is lucky to have him. Break a " kick " Al. CAR Raymond S. Clark Ray Cincinnati, Ohio Ocean Engineering, Naval Aviation If the Naval Academy had not happened to ftay. he ' d be sitting in Cincinnati right now eating a sack of White Castles and watching Caddyshack for the 98tb time. Instead. Pensacola is getting a sharp aviator and a fine officer. How did the Academy make Ray what be is today? It sure wasn ' t plebe year - Ray never had one. Basketball and a Spring Break SCUBA expedition were 4 c Clark ' s only challenges - no upperclass ever phased him. But then, Diff Eqn ' s hit him youngster year. For the first time, he actually bad to study during study hour. It was a long year for both Ray and bis plebes (what a flamer ' .). Actually, most of his frustrations were taken out on his guitar in his rock-and-roll band - Blind Alley. Second class year kept Ray busy becoming an Ocean Engineer. Of course there were always band trips on the weekends and Benny Hill at nights. Ray left our company for a while first class year to serve the battalion. (What does the Batt Sub-Cdr really do ' ' ) His 3-striper liberty saved us more than once from Neeb ' s Loaf or Ham Fransisco. That Christ- mas we found Ray ' s second home ■ Mexico. We never realized what a fascination he had for sombreros, scrapes, and switchblades. We also discovered his major obsession - downhill skiing. Macb speeds in jets will be nothing new to Ray Ray has proved to be a good friend to everyone, and a quality Ocean Engineer The skies of Pensacola will get used to seeing Ray in his happiest hour. Ray is truly an officer and a gentleman. We hope Na y Air treats him right. Charles Richard Donnelly, Jr. Dick Savannah, Georgia USMC Dick came to the Academy a southern boy. Although he always looked as if he ' d juBt stepped out of GQ magazine. Dick actually stepped out of the fleet, spent a year an NAPS and then came to Navy. Always a competitor, Dick played JV football his plebe year. Through good times and bad. Dick ' s easy going attitude seemed to get him through. When youngster year rolled around, a number of Donnelly traditions started: long hair, weekend rendevous (even some weeknighta) and the Honduran moved in. As if plebe year wasn ' t enough torture. Dick cut 25 pounds and earned bis letter on the ISO ' s team. Second class summer saw Dick and Fust playing SEAL out in Coronado. Somehow they both made it back from BUDS in one piece. Second class year, Dick spent many " all nighters " in the wardroom hitting the books when he wasn ' t watching the tube. The summer finally arrived, and Dick set out for Australia. We wouldn ' t have believed the stories except he brought back pictures. After that, everyone in the company tried to figure out a way to get to the land down under. First class year saw Dick coaching the company basketball team to its best record in a long while, making road trips with the rest of the " G-Team " . and continumg romantic forays in the area. Always a good friend and dependable classmate. Dick will be a valuable addition to the Corps. Good luck and God Bless. Thanks John.

Moe would conduct individual recons on other companies. Moe went on to Plebe year trying to decide whether to be a track man or a hockey player — hockey won out. After Plebe summer decided that to calm himself he would have to get up at 0430 so he could jump out of airplanes at Ft. BenningAirborn! Youngster year Moe was a cornerstone of the " Thirsty Five " — buy, we fry. Moe continued with Aero until the Aero profs Hnally shot him down. The Green Toad smiled on Moe and the Ac-Board lost! Moe decided that he needed a real job ao he decided to become Mr. TNA — besides, he got the only phone in the company. First class summer was a big time of change for Moe.

Corn Dog, and Homey Forney. Dave has faired well He came to us from the Colorado Rockies, where he attained his easy going manner; which also left him in good stead for plebe year. It seemed for Forn that be just laid down one plebe summer night and woke up to find it was youngster year . . - with no more plebes brought alot more time for parties. To this goal, Dave found his sponsors and their boat and their beer and the time to enjoy them, while still holding over a 3.0. He got smart and changed his major from math to something real like Mech E. Much to his adxisors disbelief, Forn has blown them away. Even the Rocket couldn ' t slow him down. Then he met Anita! Somehow we couldn ' t believe he could continue when every evening be would spend ' 2 or 3 hours on the phone, but he did. He even got the bonus of getting Anits to say yes and became the last to fall to the sound of wedding bells in his room. I guess he had to after getting caught low level necking by Capt. Cub Scout in the midstore parking lot. During Second class summer, Forn went on a crash course in money saving ■ Girls aren ' t cheap ■ and ended up eating only P J sandwiches which makes it difficult to believe that while at Quantico he was in the color squad. You see Forn is only 5 ' 8 ' and weighs 140 lbs. Even though Forn is little he is loved that is why for Christmas he was given an anchor so he wouldn ' t blow away. Fortunately, Dave opted to go submarines, I couldn ' t see him dragging that weight topside of a windblown ship. Speak truths and break a " kick " . John W. Fusto John Silver Springs, Maryland Oceanography, Navy NFO When the discussion turns to max guys, the conversation is not complete without mention- ing Big John Fusto. John is one of the older generation. He spent some time at Merrimak college and then enlisted In the navy as an biteUigence (?) Specialist. He then entered the BOOST program and found out how much fun it was to watch the sunrise in San Diego day after day after day. Long days and nights proved worthwhile, though, as be found himself in Thirsty Third with a short, obnoxious squad leader Plebe Summer After several thousand trips to the library with his little index card boxes, John realized that you sometimes got ta say " what the heck! " John ' s final selection of a major in Oceanography came just before his selection of Laura as bis beautiful wife. The traumatic experiences as Ail upperclass left an impact on John that he ' ll never forget. A short jaunt to San Diego to BUDS (hey, whats in the mud?!) netted a picture of John in the catalog. I ' m sure he ' d rather forget that. How many all-nighters John put under bis belt in the pursuit of academics will probably never be known, but the credit card, ring, and car loan came along to soothe the pain, (say YAAAAAAH) He always enjoyed a good beating if Greg ' s coffee just wasn ' t right or if the ' fish ' got out of band. What else can be said about an all arou nd great guy? With God, a loving family behind him, and Laura by his side. Big John will undoubtedly be set for a bright future in the Navy. GWP Thomas Kelly Gehan Tango Rochester, New York Applied Science, Marine NFO Tom came to USNA because his Blue and Gold officer told him that it was a " Party " school. Instead, he received the shock of hie life. Fortunately, the Academy was able to adapt . . . Plebe year saw Tom keeping a low profile, except for playing cards with Lemon and tormenting Hickory. Youngster year and Tango opened a textbook for the last time, prefering sleep to academics. But that didn ' t keep him from qualifying for ' stars " (except for a low performance grade.) Second class summer came and Tango went to Hawaii with Zieg and Schuitzie, where he gave his traveling companions demolition derby lessons in the Fairmonster. Protramid and P-cola saw Tango and Zieg going straight from Sff beer night at Rosie ' a to the X-country course at 05(X). The dynamic duo set the record for the slowest time ever recorded in P-cola, not bad! Second class year and Tom roomed with Porky and Willie for the first time. Every weekend meant road trip, and Tango was totally unselfish at Hood ' s spring parties. He was almost willing to exchange the shirt off bis back with one of Hood ' s fmest; Indian giver! First class summer and Tango ' s travels continued this time to Europe. Besides having a good time, he taught a certain Italian businessman an important lesson. Plebe detail bad time spent between the rack., Mr. Pip ' s, and the visa money machine. Academic year was spent trying to perfect the no work, all play lifestyle. Finally, service selection night and Tango signed on to be a Marine aviator, much to his mother ' s dismay. Good luck in the Corps . . . Third Company 285 B5 Michael K. Hile Zeig Lisbon, Ohio Ocean Engineering, Marine Air Mike came to us from the thriving metropoUs of Lisbon. Ohio, a town famous for its proximity to " The Nail. " Starting out with his best foot forward. Mike impressed me by- returning from our first night out and mistaking the trash can for a urinal. With no place to go but upward. Mike set a new low by ending behind bars in Providence. R.I. and initiating " marathon drinking. " Ahng with weekends, and women. Who can forget the " 360 cinema " Mike treated Tango. Bake, and myself to. Soon after this he reached the top of the driving pinnacle by four wheeling at the University of Maryland in the tbunderchicken. Driving was not all Mike excelled at. shortly after Christmas he discovered that he made the Machine ' s top ten list. Second class year began with the inaugural trip of the flying Hawaiians and Mike proved that one could exist on cornhorns. ding-dongs, sun. surf, and beer indefmately. Protramid immortalized the flying Hawaiians: free beer, stumpy, inexpen- sive beer, pilots in P-cola. the " nuclear lounge " , the guardian of peace, and the beaver dash exemplified the summer. During that academic year. Mike was not around much. Mike demonstrated his true professional attitude by cheerfully volunteering for plebe detail. First class year was then thrust upon Mike. After a grueling six weeks in LA. for summer cruise and a delightful stint of plebe detail, he returned to USNA to captain the men ' s varsitv swim team. That was also the year he led the Marietta bridge burning feaat, which was quite a feather in his cap. 1 wish him all the luck in Quantico and in P-cola. Richard M. McBride Bake Houston, Texas Applied Science, Navy Pilot Out of four years of determination we put together our own little volume of history that we may Cinally place upon the shelf of life. It IS unique to each of us, yet. it binds our lives in a way no one else could ever know. It could be a game at times, a challenge, or an adventure. But at others it could be as brutal as a nightmare. Still, it was four years of our lives. A part of you and a part of me. And that will remain with me always. Thanks for everything guys. Robert J. McGarrity Bob Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Applied Science, CEC Bob hails from the land of soft pretzels and " cheesesteaks " . Philadelphia. After a short stunt at Wyoming Seminary Prep School, Bob " rolled " into the Academy at 5-8 and 191 lbs " Firsties " were afraid to harass him for fear be would bite. Since he never talked, several rumors surfaced about bis identity. Some pondered what crime he had committed for the judge to give him the option of this place or prison. Others thought he was the younger brother of John Belushi. We were all relieved, however, when Bob uttered his first sentence Well, actually be " tested his lungs. " As academic year started. Bob quickly established himself as a man of action He certainly wasn ' t a man of words. After getting down to a trim 158 lbs. Bob made the varsity lightweight football team and began an illustrious athletic career here at the Academy. He gained All-League honors 3 years in a row and was elected team captain in his last season Academically, he also established an excellent reputation as he was honored as a USNA scholar -athlete. Bob ' s favorite pastime is getting as comfortable as humanly possible. He was often found wrapped up in a warm blanket nith both the heater and fan on. He says he doesn ' f like being too hot or too cold. After graduation.

Pease Peaser Baltimore, Maryland Physical Science, USMC Peaser came to USNA the hard way- After spending one and a half years in the fleet and fifteen months at BOOST, the -old man " finaUy made it. Taking charge at once as guide-on bearer. Peaser led THIRD COM- PANY through many march-overs and P-rades with bis dad and brother always on our left flank. Greg went through more pounds of coffee beana in his four years at USNA than King Hall has since its original existence. You could always count on Greg for a cup of home brew when burning the midnight oil. Although at times considered a sweat, Peaser was in fact a very hard worker whose diligence made life in Bancroft a Uttle more tolerable. Who else would have thought of providing donuts and juice for the whole company before the march on in Pasadena? First class year as company commander, he was even accused of conning the company officers out of Friday inspections. It almost worked Greg. Through the influence of one of our interim company officers, Peaser will be leaving the Navy to wear the uniform of a Marine. With the support and love of his parents, to whom he is eternally thankful, Greg will accomplish many things in his life. The Navy ' s loss is the Corps ' gain. SEMPER FIDELIS and God bless you. JWF Michael R. Pease Fish Alexandria, Virginia Operations Analysis, Navy Air The " Fish " , as he was affectionately known, came to USNA from, who knows where? Navy brat you know! Mike wasted no time in making friends and daily schedules (even included when to brush bis teeth}! Mike became the recipient of weekly beatings by some of his most popular classmates, which be normally provoked upon himself. Fish came to the Academy gung-ho on submarines but those Nukes showed him the light! He now wants to fly P-3 ' s (NFO) and hunt down Soviet Subs. Michael chose Operations Analysis for bis major and forever told us how wonderful the computer was. It was so wonderful that Fish got to tuck NATS into bed at 0400 on several occasions. Third Company clocks were synchronized at 1900 daily when Mike aped down the ball to make the news on TV (never missed it!). Fish took on the job of fencing captain his senior year and hoped to go to Nationals (again). His other bobbies included bicycling, skiing, running, and occasionally a visit to Italy, where he grew up. Mike ' s fluent Itahan was only surpassed by his financial prowess. With any luck, this guy is going to make bucks. Anyone who drives a ' 63 Rambler that he called the " Sex Machine " (we strongly doubted this one) and fences, can ' t be all bad. The Pease Family shuttle will always be remembered and appreciated by those who needed a helping band. Michael always looked out for bis classmates.

Rabun Pat Farmerville, Louisiana Applied Science, Surface The pride of the Farmerville Farmers came to USNA without any knowledge of the sea. He sure made up for it though, with a 4.0 PCR average and command of his own YP. Pat was not quits sure what was going on Plebe Summer, but he kept a low profile and managed to catch on to the routine very quickly. A firm believer that gouge never really helped anyone, he managed to excel without it, amazing us with back to back 4.0 ' s youngster year. But Pat ' s accompUshments never went to his head. He would always put down bis own homework to help a classmate. Indeed, he saved many a soul with hours of E.I the night before an exam. Much of Pat ' s hard work was directed to YP Squadron. Perhaps the most capable mariner in the class of ' 84, Pat was the CO of our Battalion ' s boat, and probably earned more color points for our company than two people combined. Pat ' s greatest refuge was Burger King — be went there so much on the weekends that we thought he had a part-time job. First class year saw Pat in the position of Academic Officer, where he undertook the title of " the Originator " . During his reign of terror, Pat clearly put the fear of God into anyone who skipped a class. Pat is one of those guys that you do not come across very often in life. Who else would take your duty on the weekend? (except when he was skiing) Integrity, intelligence, and a sense of humor are all trademarks of this fine claaamate.

But Francois quickly (though not necessarily pleasantly! met the squad leader Mr Gerbig and element leader Mr. Davitt. The result was a long plebe year. But, Francois proved he was tougher than the system, and survived plebe year He even earned bis Airborne wings. Youngster cruise turned out to be the light at the end of the tunnel. Francois quickly found the California lifestyle to suit his favorite tastes. Prestige and a woman in every port. He always had an eye for flash. Never did a year pass when there was not a sports car displayed under his blotter. Between skiing, flying, and a love for fast cars, one could not help but think that he was James Bond ' s proteg . But life at USNA was not always smooth sailing. Youngster year found Francois battling out academic obstacles until he was rescued by the Poli-sci department. After finding bis niche in foreign languages (after all. how else do you meet those French speaking ladies ' ), be began to cruise through academics with an occasional poli-sci paper fall-nighter of course!). As far as first class year, it was only a matter of counting don-n the days for Francois to reach his ultimate goal: a USNA grad - What prestige! Francois - fair winds and following seas be with you.

Watson Jr. Guy Audubon, New Jersey Naval Architecture, Nuclear Submarines Gary was a model mid; the kind that belongs in the sample room. He had a funny habit of intendy studying, getting good grades, being meticulously neat and organized, and being a fountain of engineering gouge. On top of all that he was a top notch drummer and a star goalie on Thirsty Third ' s Heldball team. It was the drum set that became his escape from the daily grind. Guy always had an ear for music, whether it was listening to bis radio after taps plebe year or blasting Ted Nugent at 150dB before a p-rade. A member of " Blind Alley " . Gary helped bis band to become the premiere rock group at the academy. For bis efforts, he was elected president of the Modern Music Bands and keeper of the keys! As time passed. Guy came under the spell of the " Nukes ($) and fell in love with our silent service while his roommate saw the light and went air. Some say that be sold bis soul to rock-n-roll and nuclear power, but when it came to first class cruise, he chose an ARS and the ring dance over a sub in the Atlantic. Tough choice? Not if his fiancee, Barbara, had anything to say about it! Best of luck to you and Barb in sunny Florida . - . " May the elite force be with you ' " MRP Rafael Etnilio UUoa Rafael San Pedro Suia, Honduras General Engineering, Honduran Navy Rafael wandered into the Academy from Honduras. He was all eyes and ears and could barely speak a word of English. After realizing this could be used to his advantage, homer. Rafael could reply to a rate he didn ' t know. " Sir. I don ' t understand " . He also sidestepped another problem by being allowed to give his chow calls in Spanish. Little did we all know that we were being told all about the weather instead of the noon meal and officers of the watch. Rafael did catch on to the " slang " English language, however, and soon was able to curse with the best of American sailors. He also managed to keep his head above water under a demanding engineering load, and under water before haircut inspections. The clean cut " wet look " gave way to the Georgetown civilian look on Friday nights. As of this date be hasn ' t been caught yet. After graduation. Rafael will leave his collection of " dreamy-eyed " American " babes " behind, when be goes back to serve In bis country ' s navy.

Walsh P. J. Kalispeil, Montana Applied Science, Navy Air Coach Walsh came here from a far off land that the rest of us have only heard about - Montana. He has suffered through four years of ribbing because of his origins. P. J. spent more hours defending Montana, " Bobeat " basketball, bis state ' s buffalo to women ratio, and the renowned metropolis of Kalispeil than he spent sleeping. Originally, P. J. was rather shy and introverted. His interests ranged from sports to sports! Hence the nickname " Coach " . He was a little bit of Jimmy the Greek, Ara Parsegan. Jim Thorpe, and Howard Cossell all rolled into one. You name the sport, date, and time; he ' d give you the teams, the victor, and the play by play. It didn ' t take long for him to succumb to the social pressures of bis buddies. A metamorphosis occured and soon P. J. was in the thick of the pack. His biography would not be complete without mention of sailing dates. Hood College softball and postgame activities, Yale University. San Diego summer cruise apartment, his ability to sleep in any car at any time, spring break in Florida, wrestling at Shippensburg State, perfect attendance at football games, " poly- hester pants " , " oooh sad " , and his unparal- leled performance as a Hail of Fame member of the " G " team. He is truly an inspiration to us all. P. J. now leaves us for his calling as a Navy pilot. He has won our upmost respect and admiration as a friend, a colleague, and as a person. He is an inspiration for anyone who is trying to better himself. We thank him and wish him a safe and successful life. Good luck and God Bless. BjM Micheal M.

As for her own romances, there was this guy from a place called West Point, then one from Bancroft Hall. Both were eventually abandoned, and she discovered her true love at the end of second class year - a ' 66 Corvette. First class year, little thought was given to anything else until Christmas leave, when her ' vette caressed another car and Bev. out of jealousy, rediscovered her West Point friend. Bev set her sights on going Marine Corps from the start and, except for a brief look at Na yNFO (what doyou mean I ' m taoshorf ' K she has not abandoned that goal.

His unique approach to plebe summer and plebe year included teaching Mid. Ens. Marrin a few things about marching; he shouldn ' t have grabed Kevin ' s aim. One would think that the old man knew better than to greet upperclass with. " I ' m Kevin Blum, glad to meet you. " As a second claas his enjoyment of Marine Flng. began to show as did his love need for coffee and Pepsi and anything else which contained caffeine. For three years, he had to sleep as a plebe, Kev was often up until 3 or 4 AM doing work. A true hall rat, many Saturday nights he would spend at his desk dressed in bis brown bathrobe - a cigarette in one hand and a coffee cup in the other. Ail that work seemed to pay off; an A in beat from the Rocket is proof enough. When not working. Gramps could be found watching T.V. His favorites were Hill Street Blues. Emerald Point, and Remmington Steele. Perhaps his fiancee, Janice, will fmd more productive uses of bis free time. Throughout the years Kevin has become a close and trusting friend. Good luck in marriage. We ' ll always remember you! M.E., P.F. Ruth Ann Cbristopherson Ruth Mondavi, Wisconsin Applied Science-Management, Supply Corp Ruth came to us from Mondovi.

She never lacked companionship and. not being one to waste valuable liberty time, always made it back seconds before the clock clicked. The upperclass never seemed to understand such things, especially the calamine lotion. They never managed to break her cheerful smile though, which was put to good use on the cheerleading squad. Rah. Youngster year she spent much of her time away from 4th company, but 2 c year she did manage to develop in-company subspecialities and finally settled down with Jim. Yes, an unlikely combination, but one which gave her ample justification for not studying. I ' m sure the reason she was NPQ ' d was for using her brain too much, but that ' s the price you pay for grades, (khhee-hee-bee) Good luck in Supply Corps Ruth - a financial whiz like you will do well once you get your calculator figured out. Thanks for all the pep talks and rationaliza- tions about life, and for always being able to bring out the positive (a little more blush always sets things right.)

He came to " The World ' s Largest Skinner Box " and because of deep masocbistic tendencies, he chose computer science for bis major This was fine for me because be would spend many a late night at the confuser and leave me a room to myself where I could crank up heavy metal music which be detested. Also, these deep masochistic tendencies are proba- bly the reason for his being a cheerleader for three years and the goat for one year. He was a fun loving individual and could be found at every rumble, including those that he did not instigate. He always had girl trouble. He would chase girls out here but bis heart was always with some girl from the west coast. His one fault was his indecision about service selection. He would change his mind about once a day but he finally decided on Marine Air. The choice cost him his hair. And to think that he became qualified in submarines on bis Youngster Cruise.

Lisa, " Mom " when reporting the muster and being flustered at a come around to the extent of adding profanity to the Oath of Office. Poor guy. he was so embarrassed! Well, as youngster year arrived, it became evident Gary had two weak spots: women and money. He has proved this statement true time and time again (Subic. MWC. and VSNA). As far as women go. a pretty smile and a sweet personality was enough to book Gary. For a period of time be was known as " Gary Lion " and his motto was " always Wynn and never lose. " ' prefered " all for Wynn and Wynn for all. " Anyway, after Wynn came Marie. Once again my boy was hooked. But due to circumstances beyond his control, the relationship was put on hold . . . or should I say, " to be continued?! " As far as money is concerned Gary has no control. He likes to buy outrageous clothing or else take a girl to Georgetown. In fact, when the boys from Nuke Power came knocking at his door, they seduced bim with the green stuff It was all over after that — Orlando, Florida better get braced for some heavy partying because Gary DeBode is on bis way.

Never one to waste any brain cells on trivia, Cyn proved that it is possible to graduate without learning to do mo-boards, take a derivative, or figure out the steam cycle. She carried this conservation of effort into her private life as well, and is now capable of talking with anyone without letting them know she doesn ' t know their name. One of Cvndi ' s major accomplishments was her success in breaking hearts, including a townie and whoop. Obviously Chuck was able to bring her eu-ound. and the past year and a half found Cyn quite content to study out of company. Cyndi is now off to an exciting career as a NFO.

What a wav to start off the day! Matt joined the crazy band of brothers and turned into an excellent oarsman. From all the bard work he put into crew he managed to be a very sound sleeper. How many people do you know who can get a water balloon in the face and sleep through it? As a first class Matt discovered that there was a little more to life than crew and academics. It was always fun to watch Matt ' s face light up when be got psyched to party. Matt also learned about California girls. There were several trips made between California and here in just one year and there are more planned The problem is he likes it out there Another one of Matt ' s better traits is his organization. His room on a weekday looks like most do on weekends. It ' s hard to describe on a weekend, if you c n find it. Once he even tried to teach his brother how to be organized.

Priscilla always managed to find time for others. She was often found returning from weekends with baked goods for her friends who were stuck m the half It only stands to reason that this was learned from her family who brought the ' Delaware Food Service ' to the home football games and put out the largest display of food than any tailgater in the lot. All of course were welcome. Many of us in fourth company have ' Pete ' io thank for satisfying the late night cravings for munchies.

Revenge is his middle name, so watch what you do. He may be too short to fly, but be does everything in a big way. One big thing is his stubbornness. You can talk all you want, but almost nothing will change his mind. That usually goes for women too. He let one play havoc for three years, but gave up that bad habit after detail. The magic of 3 stripes can go MILES. Another big thing to Larry ii ance. If GQ ever did a spread . of Boat School " he would be on every girl ' s dorm in the country is just right.

He slid thru Plebe year almost unnoticed by all. except for " Patty " who loved to play with his belt buckle at formations. Youngster year proved to be the time for Mitch to come out of his shell. Friday nights he became a man of many faces. He amused us all by dressing up as kufus lour janitor). Hitler, CHiPs, and Shiek Abdul Mobamedjust to name a few. He also was the keeper of Prince Bytor - the Mighty Cowled Falcon. But the Y ' ongster year antics took their toll on his grades. He promp tly changed from engineering to Oceanography. But this was still too much for Doug so he went Phi-Sci. Second class year mellowed Mitch since be ended up living with two Offshore " sailor baggers " . His only two happiness ' were eating and sleeping, both of which be performed with great expertise. He still has the rack bums from this era. First class year Mitch turned into a miracle worker ■ bow could he get a 3.1 and not study an hour. He again enjoyed bis Friday nights but this time it was either at the " Mustang Ranch " or Frans.

There are too many to mention and they might even embarrass him so we will spare him, this time. Another amazing thing about Doc was his athletic ability. This kid was tremendous in the pool on the track, those situps gave him a tough time also. One thing that he was amazing at was soccer. He made the varsity soccer team plebe year, but had to quit. When Doc arrived here plebe year be was pretty innocent, but then his roommates taught him the ways of the world.

Queens, New York Generai Engineering, Navy Air (Pilot) Rob sailed into Annapolis with three goals in mind: to become an engineer, to excel on the Varsity Offshore Sailing Team, and to fly Na y. He achieved all of these goals and even received an added bonus by the name of Kate. Mother Rabuse began plebe year professional- ly and by the book, however he soon learned the ways of deviance by eating lobster after taps with some of bis firstie sailmg friends. This act earned him a black " N " and a membership in the early morning breakfast club. On the sailing team, Rob ' s prowess was unmatched. How many collisions and man overboards did you have junior year? I forget. Rob ' s misfortune even extended on land, as he became a member of the Navy driving team by crashing his 280-ZX (way to go Sheik of Arabic). As first class year rolled around R. B. REALL Y began to mellow out and concentrate on two things: sailing and partying. He was host of the " Mustang Ranch " which was located across the river and entertained many mids with it ' s supply of Molsons. Rob is a classy guy in all aspects, from the beer he drinks to the cigars he smokes. Those H. Vpmann s added something special to our great American " tokeouts " . Rob has been successful in all his endeavors and knows how to have fun along the way. Navy air has gained a great man in Rob. Good luck in all you do ' . D.P.M. Thomas S.

Rans was a part of the ill-fated expedition to move the F-4 plebe year. Youngster year be graduated to throwing toothpaste bombs into Main-0. The true killer of that prank came when be called back posing as a Lt. to get the damage report. Tom majored in Oceanography and alth- ough had us worried on a few occasions managed to pull through quite nicely. Tom mav still be a little confused however, as to the primary use of the desk: poker table or dance floor? Rans also had his share of adventures with the babes. The end of second class year saw him juggling four women simultaneously. One or two of whom may still be weeping. Tom has left bis trail on the highway of Annapolis in blood. A motorcycle accident 2 c year left him bandaged for quite a while. As if that wasn ' t enough first class year he was in the Thompson machine when it went down in all of its glory one Monday night.

" In spite of his precarious start at the Naval Academy. Dave made great strides during Plebe year Most notable was Dave ' s help with our entire class in computers (Doc will forever be in debt to him)- When Dave was n ' t busy helping someone in their homework or taking their watch because they bad eaten too much, be was either coaching the first class on how to play Volleyball or in the famous " Schmode Mode " (with a long o in Schmode). As Dave flew into Youngster year, be became totally involved in Volleyball. Statics, and Strength of Materials the was the only guy I knew who could play golf the day before a Strengths final and still ace the thing). The best thing we can say about Second class year is that Dave survived it. As a firstie. The Schmode became the best training officer 4th Company will ever know — the Class of ' 87 will always have a special place in their hearts for Dave - that is, Mr Schmode With a little luck Dave made it through first semester and became an air dale instead of a submariner.

The hard work took its toll, however since no amount of desserts or SusticaJ could add a single ounce to his 130 pound bulk. An unquestioned champion at hide-and-seek when flag poles or street lamps were abundant. John prefered the sports of the elite - squash anyone? Abbey observed all the niceties of dress and manners. His festive wardrobe with a little help from the Bavarian Motor Works attracted numerous nice girls - perhaps a little too nice. Better try lOO r Dacron and a Plymouth Valiant.

Berninger Yoda Dunedin, Florida Marine Engineer, Nuclear Subs Steve, the only surviving member of the world famous Flying Berninger Brothers, came to US from the sprawling mudhole of Dunedin, Florida. Determined not to let physical or mental disadvantages stand in his way, Steve dedicated himself to standards of excellence far beyond anything expected from a Floridian redneck. Amazingly though, Steve has lived up to his expectations and during his four years at the Naval Academy he has had a great many succeaaes. Academically, Steve easily stands near the top of our class. Additionally, Steve has often been recognized for his dedication to duty and thorough profession- alism. Steve ' s efforts were recognized first class year by his being selected as Brigade Drill Officer for the entire year Although Steve did dedicate himself to school work and bis military duties during the week, he firmly believed in the adage of " work hard and play hard. " When Steve did decide it was time to play he could almost always be found wheeling through the mud in Bowie, his home away from home. Steve ' s favorite toys for playing in the mud included an enormous red Ford 4X4 and an uncontrollable Honda MX bike. After a grueling day of slinging the mud Steve always found that a large dose of thoee sweet " M M ' a " were just what he needed to revitalize himself Now that our stay at the Academy is rapidly coming to a close, I must thank Steve for being a great friend to myself and everyone else in the company.

But Jim was no a verage person . Ho w could you consider someone who drives through the crowded streets of Baltimore 4-wheel drive pickup (comple flag) immaculately dressed blaring Beethoven from a i previously known only honkey-tonk music.

He became well educated on both the good and bad sides of women and learned some lessons he will never forget, including how to get a good deal on a diamond. After near disaster With the ' ' La ura Log ' ' and those m uch anticipated trips to Richmond to see the wife and kids, Jim still has a healthy outlook toward women. Always quick to make a firm decision, Jim has changed his service selection al least six times. He became convinced that Supply Corps was the way for him after his excursion to the Far East during First Class summer. He brought back a vast amount of goods and, along with the boys from the " Cripoli " , he tasted the spices of a far-off world. The only limits you face will be those you set for yourself Good Luck.

She was tall, blonde, had long legs, and wore tight red pants. Right Clay to ' Missy and the Mech. Eng. Dept. took their toll as his grades fell. He was further traumatized as his family moved to New Jersey (exit 4). The medical dept. did not help much as they played with his flying status. AM stories have a happy ending this is no exception. By service selection the nuts down in medical gave him a thumbs up. He now looks forward to terrorizing the skies. They say the skies are the limit, but Joe will go farther than that. RS PS.

You can ' t mention Rsndy ' s name without saying something about Na y Rugby — Randv saw his first rugbyball Plebe year and has since earned three letters and two " N-stsrs " . To some people playing the field meant nothing but words, to flandv it meant a juggling act. He always found himself telling the girl he was with " Of course you ' re the only one!

His years at VSNA were truly blessed with interesting adventures, like the trip to Trinity 3 c year (I still have the traffic tickets). Army-Navy 1982 and his time as a POM (Prisoner of Moss). Big Steve was popular on the girl ' s school circuit 1 c year and although he claims he always went only for the cheap beer, he always seemed to return with a phone number even when he didn ' t have his goggles on The most important thing anyone could ever say about Steve is that he ' s a true friend.

He brought with him his fleet of toy boats, a rubber duck, a rubber chicken, and a rubber raft. Then, and now, he has shown a certain zaniness and enjoyment of life which has occasionally caught up with him. Such moments included ripping his leg up while running into a metal bench or breaking his shoulder while playing touch football. Mike ' s most engrossing hobby has been that of taking pictures, pictures, and more pictures. He was seen a t various times out on green bea ch capturing the sunset or in Mahan clocktower during a snowstorm looking for the right shot.

Glenn endeared himself to his new Company Officer by laughing at the idea of the sii-pack placing first in a P-rade Youngster year was uneventful until Dead Week, when Glenn was offered an opportunity to move up to the Physical Science major. The beginning of second class year found our hero road-tripping to Wildwood, NJ for long- weekend partying This was facilitated after Christmas break by the introduction of a ten year old, hundred thousand mile Pinto with a car stereo worth more than the car It wasn ' t much to look at, but it got there Then Glenn found himself the proud father of a new Mustang GT. his pride and joy. Glenn ' s fint class cruise took him to Spain on a minesweeper with a stop in Bermuda long enough to be thrown overboard at swim call, by the crew.

He lucked out and got in Cbi ' s aquad and was immediately introduced to the fine leadership opportunities available. Daring Plebe Summer Randy amazed and awed both his clasamates and the firsties with his amazing grasp of Morse code. This was due of course to his lifetime interest in Ham Radio. Randy was to eventually join and help lead the Academy Ham Radio Club. He was also very involved with WRNV. Plebe year was a hard time for us all — but for Randy well, it seemed to us that it had affected him more than most. Or maybe he just always had a bizarre personality. When Randy returned from Youngster Cruise he was the proud wearer of Silver Dolphins. Sure. I ' d give up liberty in Italy to stay on a submarine and study — not. But it was worthwhile since be was accepted to the nuclear power program and has chosen submarines. Youngster and Second Class year saw Randy study and sweat bis EE major. And many, many late nights. But he has done well in " one of the Academy ' s toughest majors. " Along the way he amassed the largest stereo system in Sixth Company. Randy led a squad of plebes around during the summer. When be returned in the fall he drove back in a brand new sportscar ( Thanks, Grandma), to become the First Regimental Sub-Commander aka MIDN Blooddrive. The tail-gator after the Air Force game will long be remembered — Randy met his " true love. " How often do you call up your girlfriend and have your Company Officer answer the phone?

Unique is the only truthful term one could apply to him because be is indeed . . . different. You see, Sean is an artist. But there are a lot of starving artists, actors, and musicians out there, so for the meantime he ' ll be sidetracked in the Navy while pursuing art, acting, and playing guitar. These are by far not the only interests in Sean ' s life at USNA. There ' s always his major, English, in which he ' s excelled — mainly because he ' s good with a shovel. He began as an aero major and had aspirations to be a pilot, but then be saw the Ught and was SAVED by switching to the humanities and a career track in surface line. Ah, but bis alter ego in The Log, Carl Pursor Darior. lives his fantasies vicariously. " Darior " began as a quick-sketch comic strip and ended as a major endeavor occupying entire weeks. Sean never did do much homework and he didn ' t sleep a whole lot either. Those weekends Sean didn ' t spend laying out The Log or drawing be occupied by finding various and sundry Oriental women, for whom he has a particularly soft spot in his head. Being as he ' s beaded for the Pacific for his first tour, we may just never see hinj again when be finally gets to the Far East If they play reruns of Star Trek in Japan, he ' ll have found heaven. JMJ John M. Jorgensen Jorgy Peoria, Illinois Political Science, Surface Line John established the tenor of his stay at USNA early on — by volunteering to show us how to brace-up at the beginning of Plebe summer. He planned to double-major in EE and Econ. We laughed. He was professional, though; the second best source of info on Naval hardware and the acknowledged expert on foreign and domestic affairs. Thus EE gave way to Poll Sci and Jorgy had a goal: world domination. This dream decreased in scale and he eventually decided on Deputy Director of the CIA. He had to settle for Company adjutant. One of his favorite bobbies was opening himself up for slams — and we took advantage of it. His " 0.3 mm pencil " will be long remembered by all those who knew of it. First Class year found John with a car that only made an occasional trip across the river for a case of Mountain Dew. Not one to smoke, drink, dip, chew or socialize, he wondered about his underwhelming success with women. Nonetheless, San Diego should be a good time for him. The first words out of his mouth as he meets the CO of his Spruance will undoubtedly be, " Well sir, this is bow I think we should run things ... " Good Luck, Yon . . . and may the Force be with you.

Nuclear Submarines Todd button came to the U.S. NavaJ Academy from a Coast Guard family and has called a number of places home. NavT has been a rather special place for Todd, though, and of course he ' s loved it since the start.

He did decide that be never wanted a youngster afternoon, so be double- majored — but he ' s always had a head start on everyone else because he speaks computer fluently. Being a computer god has had its advantages, since Todd bas enjoyed more access to NATS than most of the people who run It. but it ' s bad its down side as well. i.e. having 22 hours seven out of eight semesters. But it ' s not been all academics for Todd. He ' s managed to annoy everyone with his continual singing, and being m Glee Club has allowed him to annoy the public, too. Just kidding — he can usually carry a tune without changing keys more than twice. Todd ' s also been a fencer these last four years with a good record in foil. Perhaps someday he ' ll discover a good weapon like epee. Todd also discovered lasciviousness while at the Academy- But alas, his bachelor days appear to be ended and soon he ' ll have a ring through bis nose- Farewell to bachelorhood and fare thee well under the sea. ]Mj Matthew M.

Matt ' s academic excellence was rewarded by his successful! design and construction of a turbine, his acceptance into Tau Beta Pi. and his commission into the Nuclear naiT- His outstanding leadership skills were also reflected in his D and B command and his Company CAO duties. Matt also seemed always to excel in good times. He got an excellent start with " Sir, You need a haircut " ! This was only the beginning - Matt ' s four years continued with good times like: flying back from Towson: flats in D.C: an old friend in Tennessee; Muldoon ' s Rent-a-Car: Skiing at Killington; Powder Ridge.

We know, Mike, nothing happened . . . Youngster year. Marty plunged forward into Systems Engineering. However, he soon found it to be too much like work, so he took the easy way out, and went Math instead. Second class year. Mike moved into a 3-man room equipped with the essentials: a toaster oven and a popcorn popper. We also found Mike locked in a semi-romantic death-grip with a lamprey eel named Addie. She had her hooks into him so deeply that ' s doubtful he ' U ever get them out Many great landmarks in the life of " The Mex " were passed during firstie year. Amy: he met her on cruise, fell in love, talked about her constantly, got engaged at Christmas, and married her after graduation. The only drawback to this relationship was that she taught him to snore, something his roommate didn ' t appreciate. Another of his dreams, flying, was also realized.

When be realized that he had a shot at stars, he hit the books harder than ever When Company Commander came within his reach, he tried his hardest to shine brightest. And if the thought of CNO ever enters his head, watch out! But life wasn ' t all books and Brasso for Pete. He had a few diversions. One at home, though, fell thru during Plebe year. Youngster year found him with a new hobby, which turned out to be a cool mistake. But after a rather dull year, Pete turned to a new from second class year — which him his three stripes.

Startmg out at the bottom and eventually achieving fame and fortune by the spring of his junior year. His picture was plastered all over lacrosse paraphernalia from calendars to yearbooks until his name eventually became a household word. Ken ' s prowess on the lacrosse field has been exceeded only by his skill with a beer bong. The big question in everybody ' s mind is, what will he do after graduation ' A.) Go to SWOS school in Newport. B.) Go to Europe in search of sheep, or C.) Hack her to death with a kitchen knife.

Mclntyre Mac Palo Alto, California Physical Science, Naval Flight Officer Trevor came to USNA from one bay (S.F.) to another. Plebe summer saw Trevor ' s squad leader (Lil) hemming up his pants on I-day. Plebe year was uneventful save for his flaring temper and his receiving a six pack of beer in the mail from his girlfriend. Plebe year also saw the start of his illustrious crew career which led to his stroking the team to a national championship second class year. The end of plebe year found Trevor sucking face with Tricky Vicky after a party. He claims to have been drunk but we all know his attraction to women in uniform. Youngster year saw Trevor go through two roommates. He started his first affair with a girl bigger than a breadbox and his Dahlgren ventures included kissing snails. Mechanical Engineering presented no major problems until second class year when he found that it wasn ' t challenging his intellect to its fullest so he decided to move up to Physical Science. First class year found Trevor accomplishing many milestones, he quit the crew team when he found that he wasn ' t enjoying it. Who enjoys self abuse anyway? A prospective company sub-commander. Trevor found his quest for stripes foiled. The beginning of second semester found Trevor ' s weekends occupied by restriction and second cl s privileges. Service selection night saw the NFO billets rapidly disappearing but the force was with him and he got the last one by the hair on his chinny chin chin. Good luck in life and cover your six.

A decision he thought about more than once in the past four years. The better apart of Randy ' s first two years at the Academy were spent trying to decide which college he would attend after youngster year. But after much thought he decided he couldn ' t leave all his friends and so he stayed. Down deep we all knew he would. Randy ' s first love in life is following sports. Especially the Cowboys and VNC basketball. Randy could be seen spending many a study hour in the wardroom pursuing this interest. And if there were no sports on TV he might just decide to do a little studying to pass the Weekends were Randy ' s own time, and few were spent around USNA. If he wasn ' t home visiting his girlfriend, he was out getting rowdy with the boys from sixth company. Randy is indeed a true friend.

Plebe year was a sobering time for Scott (in fact, he seemed to spend a lot of time sobering) and in bis role as the Big Daddy, he soon became a 7th company institution. Big Daddy will always be remembered as being a great-humored {if not somewhat warped) individual, whose literary talents and lack of devotion to studying made his choice of English as a major an easy decision. Many were the nights when Big Daddy could be found behind bis typewriter, pipe in mouth, and chuckling to himself Big Daddy was never at a loss for ways to entertain his classmates and an occasional company officer. His fearless ability to man gle his fists on a bedpost and his unique taste in interior decorating (depending on the availability of a bucket) were always good for a laugh. As the Rockhead Scott had a fondness for butting heads in scrums, against the bottom of a shallow swimming pool, or through night club walls. Yet for some reason this somewhat neanderth- al appearing rugger always seemed to be fostering new and beautiful relationships with some very fine looking young ladies. Alas, it appears as though Big Daddy must finally settle down. Service selection found him joining the ranks of the few, the proud, the Nuclear Power English Majors.

George unplugged his guitars, left Georgia behind, and headed North to find civilization. By some freak accident, he ended up at USNA . Ha ing attended a military high school. George appeared des- tined for big stripes. Fortunately, the inspiring examples of Big Bird and the Rudder convinced him that aptitude and rank had an inverse relationship at USNA. and bis priorities changed. His goal now became that he would spend the next three years improving his guitar technique and waiting for gradua- tion. His original goal of medical school was torpedoed by the consistent C " ' ) Administra- tion policy about medical school, and though he loved spending every Saturday night nith Organic labs. Chemistry was soon replaced with Oceanography. This aspiring bubblehead could thereafter be found buying more and more bizarre electronic devices for his music (?) and the rude noises began emerging from his room. A physical wreck. Jorge was nevertheless a definite asset to the company fieldball team, and was the only player who might have enabled us to win a game. Though generally an easygoing guy, George would turn Crimson with anger whenever some uncul- tured buffoon asked him to put on some AC DC. Between the ear-splitting sounds of ELF, Yes. and Genesis. George somehow warped his mind sufficiently to decide on Nuclear power, and the nuclear bonus checks were rapidly followed by yet more bizarre guitar equipment. Despite one unfortunate drive with the shore patrol during Protramid. be managed to keep his nose clean during his atay at USNA. and the submarine community can be sure that they are getting a fine officer when George unplugs bis guitars once again to bead into the fleet.

One wedding dress, two engagement rings, and a full wardrobe later, Rose-Ann found herself looking at Door ff85: the Piano Man. Sgriggs. Finally, there was someone who enjoyed music as much as she did- Consequently, if we saw one, we saw the other, and, in any case, we could always hear the duet. That was expected, though, because it was Rose-Ann ' s singing that made her life at the Academy both happy and exciting. How many mids can say they shook hands with the CNO and the SecNav, danced with the Sup, and wore the ' Dant ' s cover? That was not enough, though, because after two starring roles in two Gilbert and Sullivan operettas as the soprano, she finally got what she had always dreamed of: the soprano solo in the Blaster Messiah. We knew she had it in her. Everyone knew that Roaie was unpredictable, but the biggest surprise to us all was when our soprano decided to go Corps (and not Supply!). No one really believed it until she started locking her door between 2230 and 2300 so the plebes couldn ' t shave her head. But Rose-Ann — they never told you. Music isn ' t an MOS.

She devoted so much time to our papers that it would have been quicker for her to have written them, and then she might have gotten her own in on time. All of this (and her experience as a 2nd grade CCD teacher) prepared her for firstie year when she spent a semester as an English prof drilling reluctant plebes in " poetry and the novel.

It ' s also great having upperclass friends you can borrow letter sweaters from; except dancing on the dance floor as a plebe is bound to attract attention mainly from second class element leaders. Dave took hockey seriously, he needed his pre-game nights sleep so bad that he would actually tape the Ughtswitches so bis roommates wouldn ' t come in and wake him up. Dave took academics seriously, gouge was his middle name. If he had studied as hard as he worked gathering gouge he ' d be a 4.0 student with honors. If he had ever shared his gouge with all his " buddies " they would be 4.0 students as well. If there was one thing that Dave never took seriously was his feet which smelt 80 bad that his own mother sent care packages with odor eaters in them. In all fairness Dave ' s career at USNA was very successful. He set high standards for himself and worked hard at achieving them all. Dave, we will all miss you very much and we wish you the beat of luck. Remember Dave, all good men come out on top. " I go to the fleet with many fond memories of my family, my friends on 5-3, those who I skated with in Dahlgren Hall and thaoe who encouraged me in the faith. I thank you all.

Instead of pursuing football further, he found the rack more appealing. During that tumultuous second class year, tumultuous for any Aero, he avoided public drunkenness by passing out in a sailboat at the Afterdeck. Captain Cub- Scout still wanted an explanation. First Class year brought us the " VISTA CRUISER " , the ultimate touring machine, and a number of new global tragedies. Sudden Sam suddenly decided to go Nuke Subs. Quite a shock to everyone, including Sam. Yes. his eves cheated him out of an Air billet (The Navy ' s Loss). So he decided that if he could not fly a navy jet, he ' d make enough money to buy one of his own. The fun continues at use for TAD.

After receiving a score of a perfect 10 from his roommates for a ' face dive " from the top bunk, Scott realized that it was better to get out of bed feet first. He solved this problem by never getting out of bed again. One time however, he was forced from bed by his own secretions. Scott loved his coffee no matter bow it was prepared; sugar, cream, or butter. His music tastes were a little odd also with bis all time favorite Pippin.

Second class year brought Bern back from USAFA and into contact with the Conduct System. His drinking spree on the docks behind the Hilton shocked everyone, except bis friends, who realized that this was just another typical Krueger stunt. Berne was equal to the burden of responsibility as Co. Cdr first semester. He always found time, though, to bust a few heads (including bis own) in fieldbali or hockey. As hia Navy career heads for a close. Bern has simply to decide who be has to hand Capt Cubscout ' s favorite tie down to. The Marines are getting a great officer and pilot in Berne.

But then came hia jeep and Dana could be seen carousing the local area at a fearful pace. " Jack " was game for anything. The Scrambler may be the sole reason Jack made it to graduation.

Gregory Patterson Wilson Swils Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Ocean General Engineering, Surface Line Greg came to Navy via the Marine Mihtary Academy and although he claims it had no lasting impression on him it was obvious during plebe summer that he was already a step ahead of the game. But he attributes this to the fact that he is a product of the fact that he is a product of that small milltown called Pittsburgh and like the steelers, success is just a way of life. But Pittsburgh is more than just a hometown for Greg, it was more Uke belonging to a fraternity. From the first week of plebe summer Greg was already getting visits from his native Pittsburgh buddies who would keep him up on the latest Pa. happenings. It wasn ' t long before he was on the road with them back to the Steel Mill country. Roadtrips became a second major to Greg and roadtrip he did. By second class year Wils had made more trips to PA than Trailways. It wasn ' t long before our hero had mastered the Annapolis to Pittsburgh trip with an occasional slip that usually resultec in a small contribution to the authorities or local gas station. Although, when Wils wasn ' t venturing the highways he was out on the " links " with the golf team. But I feel we will all remember Greg for his cool and logical approach on life, bis many successful escapes, and for the great hospitahty his parents showed the boys during the darkest of ages.

But he always managed tv get to Europe every summer and travel to all those little countries and sell our military secrets so Europe can rise again. Service Selection brought Cat his wish, the chance to excel in the surface community on his way to CNO. (Fife and out ' ' ) He ' U miss the weekly German banquets and drill, but as long as there is Letterman and if Overnight comes back, Gordon will be happy. Destined to excel, as they say. And so it goes . . . Jan Elizabeth Cbinn Chinn Bear Plantation, Florida Mathematics, Cryptology- Chinn Bear made her pre-Academy debut as a Company Catie. Thinking four years at USNA would be fun, she arrived with a bottle of suntan lotion under one arm and a volleyball under the other. C B. continued to catch the eye of many a male especially as she carried her fainting roommate through Plebe Summer. No one was ever sure what Karen. Niki. and Jan were up to; but, you could always find a little mischief in their eyes. " The Brigade returned " and we all met the upperclass - especially C. B- There was the gungy little Marine who took special interest in her " professional development. " Did the Marine ever check for dust on your pockets? Then there was " R-man " and the breathing exercises. Fanny, most guys seem to think C B. has pretty healthy lungs. On to Youngster Year . . . well, on the other hand, maybe we should forget about ail the good times C B. had as a Third Class. Second Class summer C. B. found her long lost twin, aerobics, and cloves. When Ac Year rolled around she was a little wary of the rooming arrangements. But, C B. found someone else who liked aerobics, cloves, and gummy bears. Who will ever forget tag-team wrestling at all hours of the nigbt. Flight Ops, Lady ' s Night, the morning munchies, the neighbor who refused to knock. ' Dillo ' s and chips, or oysters at McGarvy ' s? Most of all, who would ever believe we would room together . . . and like it? It ' s been an eventful four years and it wouldn ' t have been the same without you. I ' ll miss the great times and the late night talks. And, no poems please! Shep Robert E. Everist Rob-Roy Avalon, California Oceanography, Surface Warfare The Catalina Cat rode in on the crest of a wave into the Boat school. A cool and reserved chap, Rob soon won the hearts of all his classma tea. Rob could always be found slinking down the hall in bis boxers and left his paw-print everywhere. He is a true Navy man (dad was USNA ' 46) and yearns to be haze grey and underway in Subic Bay. A reincarnated Horatio Hornblower, Rob sailed, played tennis, and bung out with the old crew. Mount Gay was his favorite drag, but so was the old crew. Rob ' s bonked nose and pipeline will be sorely missed, as well as his back scrataher. There were no real flames in his life while at Navy, but there were a few bearable weekends. This well-muscled Conan will set the fleet on fire and plans to drive a mean cruiser. Aces, I love my striped shirts! : , . l fil i ' M. B Richard E. Farrell Richie Rich Guymon, Oklahoma General Engineering, Navy NFO Where do you start with a person who reports to USNA with orange painters pants and mirror sunglasses? Fresh from the Bible Belt of Oklahoma. Rich did not smoke, drink, or swear, Luckily Navy taught him all three. During Plebe year, Rich managed to confuse the entire Corps of Cadets by telling them he was from ninth company and by giving a pro-report on the Nimitz while wearing a gray woop suit. Rich spent the majority of youngster year discussing the meaning of life with our favorite free spirit ■ usually until two in the morning. The man with the red face showed his love for the service by going to both jump school and Junior Barking Seal School in Coronado. It was at the completion of this intense summer that he met the love of his life - JuJu. As a result. Rich retired from the office of the President of the He-Man Woman Haters Club. Exit overalls and cowboy boots, enter pleated pants and loafers. Another lesson he learned was that Kami- kazies and beer shooters were not the secret of happiness. ( " Never Again " ). He also learned that, yes, sooner or later you will go general. Rich was the best friend a guy could ask for and is sure to go far as a Nasal Radiator. Good luck in the fleet. May you and JuJu live happily ever after. G.T.W. 334 Ninth Company " m .. i r ?i mri Gail M. Haberlin Gailie. 0. M. Marco Island, Florida Naval Architecture, Civil Engineer Corps Transplanted from MA to Southwest Florida just before plebe summer, this Irish Catholic showed up at USNA with a grin that stuck with her for four years. Sailing took up most of her time, whether she was working hard or playing hard. Plebe year was tough for Gail She was the victim of not only a few wayward kisses but also the whims of an egotistical powerlifter. In the next three years her room became a shelter for homeless MIDN. First they were homeless - then they weren ' t midshipmen. With second class year came the " barn " and what seemed to be a revolving door. How did we ever get any studying done " But, alas, the terrible trio managed to have fun and pull out the grades. The second class 12 wk party at Flight ' s will always be special for Gail. The guys were so impressed with her cooking, the blue-eyed Bullet followed her home. Maybe Bancroft is more co-ed than some people think! Then again, let us not forget that private collection of poems that Gail so enjoyed. Gail ' s bard work paid off with her acceptance into CEC and with her determination she will go far in whatever she does. Beat of tuck! Robert A. Hammett Cheesehead West Chester, Pennsylvania Systems Engineering, Strategic Weapons E.D.O. Hamm strolled through the gates four years ago with his pictures of Tracy and high school vearbooks ready for whatever they could throw at him. He aced plebe year and was off into the Systems world. Youngster year he studied more and more until he grew these weird ears. He wore these things to keep out the noise, then would turn up the stereo so he could hear it again. Most of his time in the summer was spent on the foredeck of a sailboat or sleeping on the rail. Second class year meant weekends in Shippensburg nith his grease girl (She ' s almost legal now), and rogue waves and sand bars in the Bahamas. Ciieese popped out of his sub cruise green faced and headed into first class year, where be did so well as a platoon cdr. that they put him in charge of all the Coke machines, grease pencils, and paper clips in the batt. Free time he spent playing ultimate frisbee and enjoying golf on 5-4 ' s indoor course. SSN (Service Selection Night) brought Cheesehead the E.D.O. billet he dreamed of so he could go subs and not be a Nuke. He ' s looking just ripe for a career man and will always be successful in the future. So go on riding the escalator of life and finding the best deals in those human mails. Good luck in the future, Brah. M.R.Q. Derek D. Hudson Hud Grantville, Georgia Physical Science, Surface Line A native of the Peach State. Derek weathered Plebe Year with an abounding tenacity and resolution to succeed. The " Ninth Company Novelty " quickly became the fastest thing on two feet at Canoe U. As he " chopped " past the sound barrier, following semesters brought some academic struggles for " The Kid " , but he enthusiastically bounced back with fasth in his God and with the knowledge that struggles build character. During the summer of 1983. after wrestling with rattlesnakes in Camp Pendleton. Califor- nia, Derek met the love of his life and future wife, Angela. The Naval Academy opened a big door in Derek ' s life, and it couldn ' t have happened to a better guy. To my roommate and good friend. I propose fair winds and smooth seaa for D. D. H. and his Georgia peach. PHIL 3:12 Jane T. Lochner Annapolis, Maryland Marine Engineering, Surface Line Jane didn ' t have far to hike to this higher institution of learning seeing as though she was born bred in good ' ale Crabtown. How appropriate! Charged with enthusiasm, Jane jumped right into plebe year, always paying particular attention to detail, like who was in her Screws class — her future husband, of course! It was actually with the aid of Bob Hope at the end of the year that brought Jane Bob together. As youngster year rolled in. she got her feet wet as swim team manager and as a member of the YP Squadron. Firstie year is when we all got our introduction to Jane as she left 27 for 9. She became a new member of the 0-6 club. This year also found Jane as the first female YP Commanding Officer. It ' s no doubt seeing as though she has a strong will a fierce sense of competition. I hope that this won ' t rock the boat seeing as though her future hubby is the YP Commodore. I thought they didn ' t allow husband wife to serve on the same ship?! Well. Jane we ' re glad you were able to grace us with your determination drive; remember — Mahan is Condemned! Best of Luck with Bob Surface Line. Remember: Loose Lips sink ships. Ninth Company 335 B I l Laurence J. Naeyaert Lar Bear Rosevilie, Michigan Physical Science, Supply Corp Larry ventured to Canoe V. after a short stint in Newport, RI. He, however, bails from that illustrious state where the wolverines run wild, or so he never lets us forget. " Lar Bear " , as he 18 wore commonly known, came to the Academy prepared to do well in academics, sports, and professionalism. He soon became one of AJ ' s graceful puddle jumpers, yet never seemed to be able to get over the ' hurdle ' which faced him each day. His dream was to one day serve on the bridge of one of those grey ships. Lar ' s bubble was burst when he learned he would have to settle for the title of " Pork Chop " . That ' s right. Lar will be beading down to Athens, GA. for Supply School. His consolation, however, is that his lovely Florida Gator, Neta, will be close at hand. " Hey Lar, are those wedding bells I hear looming off in the distance? " Well, what ever the future brings, we all wish Lar and Neta the best of luck and that everything they strive for IB obtained. Michael J. Nevins Nev CobleskiU, New York English, Surface Line Nev ventured into the Academy as a 3-aport athlete from a small town in the mountains of N. Y., where his Coby Cubs produced several " third in the state " teams. Having been recruited as a catcher and Qb, he had expectations during the heat of plebe summer of being Navy ' s catcher, but found himself with the ISO ' s after refusing to field fungos at 2B with bis catcher ' s mitt. He then transferred into the lax program for two seasons before retiring to the company muffins with all that natural athletic ability. " Imagine? " Remember the UM excursion when it somehow took 3 brs to get from the Vous to Scott ' s dorm. " Imagine? " Maybe a few too many tall cool beverages of choice? Mike ' s raquetball workouts during the latter half of his tenure at USNA succumbed to BUDS workouts with Fat Ole Waters and frequent rack sessions in the afternoon. But then there were the Flight ' Lite ' Nights that became a part of the weekly routine. Nev was a great guy even though his love for the Heels had to be tolerated; a sports nut with an easy going personality: s true and dedicted LTM. We ' ll all be waiting for you to use that English background to write a book: " 1000 Ways to Prepare Chicken. " To a great friend, I wish you the best of luck as you join the BMR Robert R. Paulk Bubby Sarasota, Florida Oceanography, Surface Warfare Bubby blazed into Annapolis tan from the Florida sun and full of spirits and spirit. Despite separation from Lin and Mom, he has fared well at the Naval Academy. With the help of loopers, a big spoon, and raisin bread, he has found a brave new existence and has been designated sub commander. A potential " ball " player, he has unselfishly sacrificed his career for Mexican meal and nuclear rack sessions ■ a feat we give our highest medals for. Bub promises to give Surface some tips on dressing and studying. Bub ' s appearance is perfect, but so is his heart. " Although many are called, few are chosen " and Bub is always chosen to do the dirty work. Mark R. Quigley Cap ' n Quigs Bristol, Rhode Island General Engineering, Surface Line The development of Quigs is a unique story. He came to Annapolis a mild mannered young man from Bristol. Rhode Island. He quickly developed and nurtured a handful of bad habits that he now performs to perfection. Most of these will help him in the fleet though, (gallon of coffee and 2 packs a day}. Plebe year allowed Q to build up a lot of gravy in his QPR. Systems Engineering whittled away this surplus until it finally got the best of him youngster year. With an easier major (degree in graduation) and a rotary rocket there was no stopping Quigs although quite a few tried. (How many demos?). Despite the frayed tightrope Q walked academically be always managed to close down the wardroom in the small hours of the morning. A welcome asset to any wardroom Q is ready for the fleet. Good luck. 336 Ninth Company • m Dallas Roy Roper Doctor Doper Pittsburgh, PA Chemistry, Naval Flight Officer The last person on the young doctor ' s mind as be saw the comely citv of Pittsburgh in his rear view was Al Cantelh. Little did Dallas know but the head coach of the track team and he would have one of the most popular love-hate relationships (mostly the latter) at Navy. After conveniently acquiring sprained- ankles during Plebe summer, he worked very bard to attain that same level of popularity through bis everyday dealings with his classmates. After numerous varsity track records, a change in majors, having to put up with little brother, several amorous advances by those of the fairer sex. and of course, the overwhelming demands of his new major, chemistry, Dallas surprised us all by selecting NFO on selection night. Whatever the future holds for Dal, we ' re sure it will be a bright one. We wish him the very best to both be and bis lady-bird, Robin. Best of luck. LJN Barton M. Rowe Brad Brooklyn Park, Maryland Physical Science, Surface Line Bart came to the Academy with just about one thing on his mind ■ baseball. After spending a year as a Hamster, Bart drove all the way down Rt. 2 from Brooklyn Park to USNA. Bart ' s dedication to baseball was incredible. He just wouldn ' t let the " other " aspects of Academy life distract bim. Academics were cert-ainly no distraction. Bart ' s another dedicated LTM who managed to cram 2 semesters of EE into 3 semesters, and he still built up all that " negative gravy " along the way. Bart did. however, have a few distractions in bis four years. He managed to keep himself under the watchful eye of a certain Batt Officer for most of First Class year. There seemed to have been a mix-up over football game attendance and perfor- mance? The many Flight " Lite " Nights also brought a distraction or two. How about the night three of us were " water-skiing " in the heads? Or the many times Greg ' s favorite article of clothing was removed from his body! There is also THE distraction in his life - Colleen! It seems the one time " woman killer " is going to make that distraction on a permanent one! Bart will take many friends and memories with him when he leaves. I can only hope you have the beat of luck in San Diego and wherever else you go. MJN Mark S. Sakaniwa Sak Fayetteville, North Carolina Economics, Special Ops Mark cruised into good old USNA from beautiful downtown Fayetteville, NC. Mark always seemed to have bis act together, but no one really knew just bow much until he became one of the biggies first class year. Mark had spent a lot of time with L.P.Q.. the island, then with the boys when the island bit the dust. One of Sak ' s greater disappoint- ments was the search for that elusive Sunset Strip during Army ' 83. Mark didn ' t connect on Sunset, but he did manage to make the Sheraton the next beat thing to a KOA Campground. Luckily, no one was caught Sak partied here and there, but be saved most of his partying for that Main Squeeze back home. He did manage to save some of that partying for the plebers. Who can forget those mornings at PEP after a late one at Frannie ' s? We probably won ' t see much of Sak, because he ' s going to be one of those " special " Special Ops boys. Wherever he goes. Obnoxious Nine wishes Sak fair winds and following seas. SAKKO! I said SAKKO!! Arthur K. Samara Artie Salt Lake City, Utah Mathematics, Surface Line Art came to USNA from Salt Lake City. Utah, fresh out of high school and a life of fast cars, fast women, and hard drugs. The first years of transition were tough for this hard line partier, but he vowed to become a professional Mid. He gave up drugs for " cope " , and he became heavily involved in sports as he lettered in varsity sub squad. In a further assault on professionalism he let " Guch " shave his head and he even shaved an N ' onto his chest. Although be refused the homegrown (ha. ha), be even brought the military into bis lovelife in the form of a ROTC. But Artie ' s true state of professionalism wasn ' t realized until be finally met up with the " Dank " . Art, we ' ll all remember the good times and laughs you gave us. Good luck in all you do. God Ninth Company 337 B i- s m nw Robert L. Sawyer Syracuse, New York Political Science, Surface Line Rob came to USNA via tcwtruck. His Muatang convertible just couldn ' t make the trip from old Sore-Excuse. Fortunately it only cost him four arduous years of his life in extiacurricuiar activities. Academics played no role whatsoever in Rob ' s career Much to his surprise this was how they evaluated people here, so " KITTYHA WK here I come! " is now his creed. Rob ' s other abilities enabled him to sing and dance his way through two different compan- ies, a feat achieved by only the most elite individuals here at USNA. Knowing Rob has been like knowing Charlie Brown or Murphy (Murphy ' s Law), which should make following his career in the fleet nothing less than an incredible adventure. Good luck on the High Seas Rob! PRO Deborah Lynn Sheppard Shep Kalamazoo, Michigan Political Science, Supply Corps In 1980 Shep decided that she was having too much fun at the U of Michigan and entered USNA in the class behind her baby brother. After two years you ' d think she ' d be able to drink. Well she could, but it wouldn ' t stay down (Army Plebe Year). " Mom " had lots of words of wisdom ■ wanted or unwanted. Until she found Karate to keep herself occupied. Youngster year she learned a lot about her two former roommates. She experienced the real meaning of " things that go bump in the night. " She was the last to know C. J. ' s real mea ning of " good friends. " Airborne-Mamma couldn ' t keep her feet on the ground. If there was a tree nearby she landed in it, resulting in " Sbeppard ' s Woods. " Second Class Year she found her stick-man two floors down. Her firstborn will be Steven-Stephen Shepherd-Sheppard - or maybe he will be the -Big O " . First Class Year the old lady enjoyed knitting in her scarce spare time. Weekends were spent with the in-laws. As Honor Chairman her weeks were spent - well that ' s private official. Deb stretched herself in all she attempted because she knew the importance of two inches. Good luck to her with the Fleet and the Air Force and the little ones. Chinn Bear Michael A. Strano St ran man Hammonton, New Jersey Oceanography, Surface Line Michael came out of the Garden State, and after a short stay at MMA of Texas, he arrived at NA VY, with the goals of getting married and going Surface (and both ASAP). Surface was a cinch, and he met the lady of his dreams in no time at all. It was a sure sight to behold when Mike disseminated the news of his engagement to Teresa. Mike ' s industry is illustrated in his decision to begin planning for his honeymoon while still in high school The Dr. ' s favorite pastimes are writing to his lady and playing his guitar. Good ole Mike has a true admiration for ships of the U.S. Fleet. By the end of his first tour of sea duty, Mike will probably be known as " Salty Strano " Here ' s to you. roommate.

And he gives God all the glory. From the outset we knew we had a top notch musician in our midst. He could play the drums (and later the guitar) with the best of them - and give God all the glory Second Class year, as we learned the rigors of upperclass leadership. Jarreli stood out distinctly as one who would go out of his way to make sure that the plebes were motivated. He knew be cared Through First Class year, finally, though there bad been some rough water and a lot of growing up to do for all of us, Jarreli showed us all what it meant to be a time servant through the giving of his time and diligence in not just the OCF, but the Body of Christ throughout this institution.

California Oceanography, NFO Mark left the warm desert valley of Yucaipa. CA for the humid Annapolis Bay air. He loved the bay so much that he majored in oceanography. He was definitely an affirma- tive action student. He gave more than enough time to television watching and sleeping. At one time during his illustrious academic endeavor, be was known as Kelvin — because his knowledge of Chemistry was absolute zero. While at USNA Mark gained a reputation for being a party animal. This be learned well from being a Rugby letterwinner His real nickname, however, was " Wheels " because only he could drive from his home to Mother B in 40 hours. On the weekends be was Hood college bound with his favorite buddies, a full tank of gas. and a full cooler of beer. On the way up, be made record time; however, on the return he was known to enter the freeway through the exit ramp. Impaired or sober, he was always in control. His charisma and smoothness witJi women made h man at local bars and at Hood. He took a marine option cruis. summer and was a " die bard " mai and through. So much so. that he grunted all the way to the Navy Air NFO line. He musf have remembered how much fun be had during third class summer with the Black Russians. Anyway.

I thought " geek " , but it wasn ' t until later on (academic year) that I found out how much of a nice guy be really was (i.e. " cool " and " mellow " ). It seems that ' as much as I remember USNA I remember John. He has always been calm, self controlled, and extremely mature. (More than most folk). He is a peaceful guy — with a funny, spur-of-the-moment humor. The biggest thing in John s life has always been God I have always been amazed at the amount of revelation he knows. During the first years here, he was highly involved with the navigators and later, with other ministries. His presence at USNA (and graduation) has been a blessing from God — to whom he (and all of us) owe the glory. When I think of John. I think of a " brother " ; I think of peace and joy personified in a way that lifts everyone up around bim As he goes on to his cruiser. I know God will use him — as He ' s used him at USNA. John, may God continue to bless others through you wherever you go — with all the glory to Jesus Christ the Lord. Amen. (PS. I Cor 16:14) JRD Joseph A.

MCP Tenth Company 341 i mm Nicholas E. Freeman The Raging Bull, Fred Cherry Hill, New Jersey Applied Science, Surface Line After a spectacular career at Valley Forge Military School. Nick came to the Academy only tc prove that would be as far as he would ever get in life. The master of the BEMHO, Nick once or twice gave up the rack for Rugby or Wrestling practice, but in the end, sleep became his preferred workout. Never daunted by consis- tent academic failure. Nick amazed us all by pulling it out every time. (At least there was one thing be wanted to pull out.) Early on, Nick demonstrated bis natural inclination towards Surface Line by piloting a stolen rowboat on College Creek, and sinking it. Along with the rest of us, Nick had always thought be was GREEN, but those role models can catch you by surprise when the choice has to be made. Nick always made a point of bis good looks and athletic physique. However, with the face of a pre-historic cartoon character and an extra 20 pounds after every vacation, we began to have our doubts. Girls, to use the term loosely, were Nick ' s major endeavor. Somehow, be always managed to work his way into the heart of every girl he met. and from there . . . How was 8-3, anyway? Nicii swore he would never go out with anything in a uniform; little did he know they felt the same way about him. Nick was a great road-trip companion. It ' s hard to be a nuisance when you ' re passed out after the first 100 miles. One Spring Break. Nick vowed to drink 10 cases of beer, which ended in unconsciousness on the 4th day. But whether it was girls, beer, or machismo. Nick always had a story to tell and a smile to go along with it. Though we can ' t really figure out why, we all love him, honestly. August Howard Hein Howie Depew, New York Political Science, Navy Pilot August Howard arrived at Annapolis bearing a reputation of enormous prominence only typical of valedictorians at educational institutions such as NAPS. However, this former Buffalo resident is not limited to excellence in academics alone. After many seasons of watching hapless Buffalo sports teams. Howie launched his own athletic campaign. When the challenge of playing Navy soccer ended. Auggie shelved his letter sweater and became a demon on the intramural scene. Whether on the football field or basketball court. Howie is truly one of the few, the bold, the testosterone-laden. On a more professional note, this former project 21 member can best be described as presidents have maintained a " D " in conduct. Political Science proved to be the perfect outlet for the sharp wit and barbed tongue of this New Yorker. No officer or teacher at the Academy is too important to feel the bite of Howie ' s off-the-cuff sarcasm. Nor would any professor dare give him less than a high " B " on a ten-page paper slopped together at the typewriter overnight.

Lee Wally Huntington Beach, California Systems Engineering, Submarines If anyone in Tenth Company enjoyed the good life it is certainly Hunington Beach ' s favorite son. Wally was a typical California boy with few. but well chosen vices. From Hood to Goucher. from the river to Marines the east coast will never forget him. Champagne taste was Walter ' s hallmark. Fast cars and hi-tech stereo equipment were ' must haves ' in bis lifestyle. To support these expensive habits he tried a brief stint as sales representative for Escort fuzz busters but there was no future in it. In the end the dollar signs beat a path to the doors of the elite force and Walter was ' goin ' down " for a price. Wally was not without bis talents of course. How many times was the planet saved by his fast hands at the Defender controls? And who else could locate the OOW with such certainty at such appropriate times? Yes. be was great to have around at times like those, when his smiling face lit up the night with its warm glow Style was another of Wally ' s attributes. He switched with ease from beach boy to prep and was never out of place on either shore. A real trendsetter, he pioneered the collarless SDB look. If only we had seen what you saw that night, but you are an officer and a gentleman. Now you are off to another beach town to lead the simple life and our hearts go with you. Keep air in your banks and watch out for flappers. MCP 1 11 % Gregg Marvil Marv San Juan, Puerto Rico Political Science, Surface Line Marv went from the sands of San Juan to the shores of the Severn as a professional scholarly giant. This image was quickly loet whenever he got a beer in his hand. He transformed instantly into " The Latin Lover Maaan, the women, they need me. " Marv ' s spread his philosophy to all who would listen — He even bad a book published with his greatest quotes. The first chapter discussed the question of " Why do people know? " It went on to discuss Marv ' s most famous quote. " He had a feeling, that ' s why he shot it. " Even though you might not agree with bis philosophy, you had to like Marv. Who else would go UA twice, get class A ' d twice or who else could have been chosen for company commander, just two weeks after being fried for going to a concert on Tuesday night? Marv had the talent of completing three 10-page, A + papers in 3 days. Not all the cards were dealt his way, though. Gregg wanted to go to graduate school in bis senior year, and through hard work and determination qualified for this. But this was not to be as the Navy interfered. This just led Marv to hit the coast button First Class Year. Gregg excelled in sports and academics. Marv was a great pettier. Local bars and colleges gave him the chance to use his Latin charm. Often times he would just end up with some " chili " at the end of the night. Marv went on to be one of the moat popular company commanders in 10th company ' s long and glorious history. Marv, may you go on to have a successful " 5 years " in the fleet and good luck in law school. S " J " S 342 Tenth Company William C.

But Scott hasn ' t changed a bit since day one. He ' s still as laid back as ever. His casual attitude and pleasant smile quickly made him famous among upperclass. Scott was the greatest buddy that a plebe could ever have, because be did such a great job of attracting all the attention from the upper- class to himself. Needless to say, Scott became well liked by all of us. When it came to weekends and partying. Scott was always at the forefront.

Scott did a lot of research, but he finally found the answer in bis hometown high scho ol honey. When it came to drinking, Scott never fell behind, although he did fall down a couple of times. As a drinking buddy, be was the best. You could always talk him into going out in town for a couple, even when you weren ' t supposed to. Scott was always participating in anything eventful. He was one of the dirty dozen, the Moody Blues concert boys, and the Winnebago bunch. When it came to academics. Scott figured out very quickly how to use his study time most efficiently. He never spent more than 3-4 hours a week studying, and the rest of the time, be would be either at WRNV or in the wardroom watching TV Scott made a decision to go to Pensacola after graduation, because his casual attitude and personality will enable him to blend right in with the rest of the airdales.

The Zwirn would never be the same again. Despite the miseries and woes of plebe summer and a near fatal bout with the plague. he steadfastly maintained his grim outlook. It appeared that he would live out the rest of bis naval career believing that the light at the end of the tunnel was only an oiler out of Norfolk. But that was not to be. The first sign we had of a sense of humor beneath that fatalistic front was a nearly successful attempt to suspend the Box from an upper bunk by his waistband. But plebe year went by with no one noticing this subtle change. The next two years left John with a deep respect for the surface Naiy. He returned each summer with exciting tales of life aboard oilers and amphibs and we began to see a wiser, saltier Zwirn. Suddenly there was more to life than Chemistry and bicycles. Even the loss of four weeks of leave in exchange for an " opportunity to excel " did not break his stride.

Not to be outdone by previous feats, he worked long and hard on many other roadtrips with Frank. Linus. Mike, and his brother Kip. He also gained an undying interest in finance when he began to realize that money could be fun to spend. Even more fun than money though, he made extensive searches all 4 years for the perfect woman. Ted ' s four years were also spent in the pool swimming or playing Polo, with his nose in the Wall Street Journal, in the library, and looking at the future.

Plebe year ended and Greg was thrust into a new challenge - " The Room " . With Ted. Bill. Perry, and Munoz around it would have been easy to go crazy but Greg didn ' t. Youngster year brought about added studies, added work, and added altitude. Greg always had time to sit down and talk about life, love and the Lord. His sincere concern for everybody adds a comforting touch to his character. He has helped those m need and he will continue to do so. A major in Aero brought Greg many sleepless nights his junior year, and Dave Blank provided more spiritual leader- ship. Although Greg tried not to show it. his loneliness for Gayle hurt. Greg and Gayle will marry in July. (YEAAAAA) The Navy has a very capable NFO coming its way. A man who is thorough in his work, sincere in his heart, and honest in his actions.

Second class year be found himself with a new roommate and the real Skin showed himself. If be wasn ' t arguing with his roommate about toothpaste, desk space or Forum, he was manipulating someone in the company with a devious plan. Nobody ever realized Ben ' s potential as a con artist and he soon bad people, including women, wrapped around his finger. As far as staying away from trouble, that ended with the late night out with Tex. Skin and Tex couldn ' t remember who said that second class couldn ' t park in the Yard, but the OOD did! They went from the Cellar to the doghouse (restriction) in one short weekend. First Class year found Ben as one of the best high power rifle shooters in the nation and with a few more " notches " in the belt. He also continued to venture out on more memorable " gigolo " weekends. Some would argue that be paid his dues for such outings. His hardships included computer class retakes, late night studying and academic restriction. However, it ail evened out on the Labor Day weekend ' 83, Mao and Reisterstown experience of the closest kind, and all those senseless Cheecb and Chong flicks.

The furst expedition introduced many good things: that cool refreshing drink - Jack Daniel ' s snowballs; hearty meals such as " Camper ' s Compote.

The death ride with Stumpy, the one-legged outlaw, the beaver dash, ripping apart gym shorts for fun and profit, the nuclear lounge, the golf game, the guardian of peace, the female bigfoot monster swim, mechanical bull-riding, and Andy ' s 50 or 60 little pets he picked up in Quantico were ail banner momenta of the summer.

He wasn ' t lucky enough to get accepted on his first try, so he spent a year at NAPS After NAPS, he gave up his E-5 pay. sold his brand new camaro. and left his girlfriend to take the big step up to become an officer.

Hobo, and Cus and the nuclear sweat pump image. Time was divided between studies and the boathouse. One of the original pretenders, he was known to take time from his busy schedule to pose for PR photos at the behest of Navy Crew. A radical change was in store for second class year as Johnny left the pumps to live amongst the Oakies. Afternoons spent with the mad galaxie driver or the rack nearly brought the vengeance of God down upon him. Divine intervention saved his weekends for Saturday night tours complete with refreshments of Annapolis ' finest establishments which ended playing quarters in Dahigren followed by worship services at the porcelain altar. This set the tone for the big Army-Navy trip with Harry, Bakes, and KEK. Low on funds but not alcohol, the trip would have ended if not for well-timed breathing into the carburetor. First Class year brought forth the foresight- edness that Johnny always seems to have. He prepared himself for Na y Air by keeping the grades up and flying with VTNA.

Your unique method of proving a point (one or two fists) will carry you far with your Band of Brothers (It ' s got a good beat, the kids can dance to it. I ' d give it an 84). Your passion for ducks on the highway far outweighed your compas- sion for us (Did you ever get the Vette fixed?). Of course your quest for the ultimate girl without fat thighs will never cease. We never thought a lightweight crew jock with bags under his eyes could do so well with the Deb-U-Nots. It must be the fact that crackers are an aphrodisiac! Despite the fact that we were bruised, suffered concussions, and had our lockers busted, you ' re OK by us. Best of Luck always Chip! Hugs iSi- Kisses, (You ' d like that, wouldn ' t you!) Cuz John Christopher Robert Kirschten Chris, Kiki Livermore, California General Engineering, Navy NFO One would almost think that Chris should have been born with wings. His love of flying is only paralled by his intense fascination and extensive knowledge ofaircrafts which extends back to the Wright Flyer. Actually, Chris has many interests including sporty modes of transportation. Yes, he is a car buff. He visualizes himself strapped into leather Recaro seats, with 13 position controls, surrounding him is a fully equipped Toyota Supra nith 5-apeed transmission, smoked glass windows, lustrous black paint job with gold pinstrip- ping, and gold alloy wheels with P7 tires, and . . . then he wakes up. Chris started out as a mechanical engineer but soon saw the light and decided that the saying, " Sooner or later you ' ll go general " had some validity. Actually. Chris added a new twist to the general engineering curriculum which one could call Select-O-QPR. The way it works is you select the courses which will have the greatest buoyant effect on your QPR. If after a few days in class, you decide that you ' ve made a bad " selection " , you " engineer " a new schedule. According to Chris, the end justified the means because he got his NFO billet. Hopefully, in a year and a half. Chris will be in the back seat of an F-14 flying off the IKE.

Striving towards bis maximum potential. Flounder set the example by taking on the Systems Engineering Department, and bv joining the Naval Academy Yachting Club. Kent worked hard to keep up spirit during the first three years by decorating the room with rose bouquets, and giving out free champagne, Kek exemplified the good life by skippering Moxie and Connie, two of the Yachting Club ' s finest pleasure craft. Many a fall Saturday saw 3-stripers marching their companies towards Navy-Marine Corps Stadium, while this company commander sailed serenely out Santee. wheel in one hand, glass of wine (Christian Brothers. Chateau La Salle, 1980) in the other. Kent taught us all a lesson in chivalry youngster year when he went over the great brick barrier to comfort his florist in her time of need. Of course being a class act takes money, so Kent invested his car loan, becoming the A. J. Foyt of the investment world. Kent ' s rougher edges were revealed when be brought in his Bob Seger collection youngster year, and when he brought that sporty little Volare (Chrysler) to school. Kent will most likely be the first U-Boat skipper to sink a target while wearing a dinner jacket and smoking a cigar. Remember Kent, the dream is always the same, you step out of your 944, but you are not in the garage, you are on the bridge of your first aluminum tube, and FRY HOG is the skipper . . .

This made Erik a prime candidate to see the real world after his tlrst two years as a midshipman, leaving with over a 31 grade point and the desire to become a civilian again During a brief tour as a civilian. Erik worked as a vocational teacher for developmentally disabled adults. During this time he also went to night school taking one class per semester Due to the hea y course load. Erik decided that he wanted to return to the academy and pursue his dream of becoming a Na y pilot His old aero- buddies were glad to see him back and spent many long nights trying to transform him back to bis midshipman self again. Erik was very successful in accomplish- ing their goals, however, he was forced to vent the many frustrations in the local ring. We all know be could have been champ too. but be was determined to break his hand just to get out of formal inspections. Erik never wanted to change his civilian hair too.

" Unfortunately, this mid out of Farmtown, USA ( home of all great basketball players) bad bad feet, and his idea to come to the Naval Academy crash-landed. Fortuna- tely, be desired a SWO pin instead of the wings of an eagle which suited him just fine. The start of bis first semester of academics took this pseudo- basket bail player quite by surprise. But, he recovered to eventually brush shoulders with the upper half of his class. While at the Naval Academy, Steven pursued such diverse fields as Spanish, Economics. The Rack (bis hardest course) and -.All My Children " (He would unhook ERC and play around with the antenna until the desired reception came in). His Company Officer even joined him on occasion to watch Jenny, Greg and Arica. Eventually, that great scourge, women caught up to him. and on Fridays you could see bim on 1-95 to Pbilly. His summer cruises were something else. YP 0N2 taught him how to be professional aboard a YP and offer cokes to damsels in distress. His first class Caribbean cruise (He was set up by a friend m PRODEV) sent him off with 7 other Mids who knew as much Spanish as be did. Somehow, he came back to the States with 3 addresses, among other things. (He also came back fluent, it ' s amazing what men will He ' ll be soaking up rays in Long Beach.

Rooming with Dave has been a pleasure — usually. When threatened with possible wedgification, be didn ' t hesitate to follow up on his own threat, " I ' m gonna hurt ' cha!

In Dahlgren, where he became a regular. Gene bad the great advantage over his shipmates of not having to drink to enjoy the use of beer goggles, thus sooner opening the field for a broader range of opportunities. How could he lose with lines like. " Can I have your picture for my blotter? " After a cruise on a grey ship and a leisurely sail to Bermuda, Gene decided that submar- ines were the way to go and promptly signed up.

Speaking of clouds, we were always in one as to which school Sid actually pledged his allegiance. Let ' s just say there was more orange and white in bis room than there were gold and blue. Go Tigers! Second class year came around fast and Sid signed on for a seven year hitch. It seemed that the red head signed on for a hitch of her own. She was still around. Why, she was even driving Sid ' s car . . . in the yard no less! " Pardon me Red, are you a midshipman? " That ' s O.K. Sid, we didn ' t mind driving you all over town. Well First Class year and Red ' s still here- Is that what they mean by a " lifer " Sid? Could be! But seriously, Sid is a kind, generous, and caring individual whom we all respect and admire.

Annapolis, Maryland Physical Science, Marine Corps K. T. took the roundabout way to enter the Naval Academy. He hails from Annapolis but on bis way to U.S.N. A. got lost and wound up at NAPS. Kevin never actually lived in Bancroft Hall, he just commuted daily . . . living only two miles from Canoe U . 3 c year came and so did weekends . . . where ' s K. T. ? He was the only third class in the company to put in a chit to request driving in the two mile limit. K. T. never lacked style. He would have won the company GQ award, but we didn ' t have one of those. 2 c year saw the beginning of K. T. ' s Tazi Service as he would uae dad ' s car to cart the " gang " around on weekends. Kevin had a lot of tales about the harem of women that were chasing after bim ... we never saw any of them ? . . . we believe he mentioned something about mids having no class . . . Naaaah! First class year. Kevin went from platoon commander to company academic officer, a job he really appreciated because it brought him so much closer to our company officer. K. T. will do 0-TAY in the Marine Corps. Semper Fi. Perry E. Johnson Independence, Missouri Electrical Engineering, NFO For the duration of bis four years here. Perry has been an invisible man to most. To the rest of us, he ' s something of an enigma. He ' s the only one of us to have kept the same girl for all four years, the only gun- toting neo-fascist to come from Missouri since Daniel Boone, and the only " music lover " who can play The Silver Beatles and Devo in the same beat. As for his dream of flying in the bombardier seat of a Uve B-17. will NFO training succeed where a life membership in the CAF failed? Or is it just the wings be wants? Although he hardly needs them for catching the ladies — besides his fiancee, there ' s at least one other who pines after him. Who can forget " He ' s @!Xff engaged?!! " In spite of his idiosyncracies. he ' s always ready to help a classmate, loaning him one thang (sic) or another. And who could forget the bedlam in the wee hours of the morning as even the toughest of roommates fell afoul of bis favorite tactics — the dreaded chin swipe or the last-ditch tickle. Perry ' s sure to make a big bit with those who really see him, at least as long as he keeps receiving those chow packages. Good luck in the wild blue yonder. Perry, and we all hope you get to shout, " Bombs Away!

Matt, Scott, how could I ever forget second class summer! It was such a panic, right HTjo would have thought that after getting so sick in the T-34 and not passing the swimming for the T-2 ride, that I would choose NFO. I guess I ' m a glutton for punishment . I even tried to go Nuke. Thanks Gramps, if it weren ' t for you I probably would have missed out on this great experience. I just hope I get as much out of the NavT as you did. Prion Robert Martin Bri Warminster, Pennsylvania Mechanical Engineering, Navy NFO Martmatien went straight from Warminster into the dog bouse. But he got out of the dog house as soon as team tables ended. Youngster year Brion proved to all of us that drunk under the table was more than just an expression, and that the sink is not just for washing anymore. Bnon ended the year by eating some early morning breakfasts for blowing demo in the room. The weekends of second class year allowed Brion to get very PW ' ed. but that didn ' t stop him from slumming a girl from Bait ... " I didn ' t know that the last time we kissed I was being kissed off. " Two cycle Martin also had a good time in Lauderdale . . . how was Shamoo " But really. 1983 was a very good year for Bnon, he didn ' t have a crash that be couldn ' t drive away from Although he tried very hard the first weekend he bad bis conette. However, LPD-13 wasn ' t so fortunate, it didn ' t need that catwalk anyway. First class year brought more trips home and to Penn State. On the weekends that he stayed, you could catch him at the 0-club chasing after Betsy, or Patty, or Wendy, or Sally or whoever else was there, {only kidding Janeene).

McCreary Bear Beaver, Pennsylvania Management, Navy Pilot Bear came to us from Beaver, for Beaver, and after Beaver. Spoons, I mean Jeff, was a track stud plebe year. That ' s why his name is on the wall in Halsey. Youngster year, the penthouse allowed Bear more liberty than moat firaties. Jeff continued to run . . . into town . . . after girls . . . and they were still changing the numbers on the wall. Second class year, injuries kept Jeff from running and Karen tried to nurse htm back to health but in the end. the differences between Jeff and Al became too great. With more time on his hands, hops and Pedro started to rule. Bruce parties and spring break earned Bear the nickname Dempsey . . . for making pickups as regular as the trashman. Second class year also saw the end of study hour at the Riverside. Jeffs Utile white spit turned into a pile of . . . when one of those nasty mobile guardrails decided to cross the road . . . too bad it never got there. Luckily, the 0-Club was only a few hundred yards away, so, Bear ' s style was anything but cramped. A source of much entertainment, some of the best Navy 0-clubs will keep Jeff busy for at least the next five years. See you in five at Bruce ' a. John Christian Martinez Tippy Syracuse, New York Systems Engineer, Submarines Tippy, the great soccer player from England, Oregon. Syracuse, Blacksburg, Chicago, Long Island? His first mistake was living with Bob plebe year, who convinced him that Playboy was better than Proceedings, and beer was better than gatoraid. Too bad his body didn ' t take it so well. He knew Ralph well! Too well. He had a rank to match. 34 out of 33. Thanks Tim. Youngster year also afforded him the time to play with high explosives and spend Easter Break on duty. Disney world was no vacation either, after getting booted from space mountain. Junior year brought voo goo and nubies. Albright also became a good friend. How about the doc ' s ' stang at Hood and 6 weekends of running from security. Bruce parties and the Go Gos finished off the year. Then he met Blue Thunder, or should we say the 7 cylinder wonder. Why drive when you csn walk. If that isn ' t enough, brain damage entered his life, or was it his death. No, really, she liked the hooded sweat shirt ... a lot.

Unfortunately, the Cardinal could not always hold the beer he was running for Like Mess Night when he repainted the walls. " Hey Bob, what ' s that smeW " Bob was never at a loss for words in Dahlgren either. " Oh. you don ' t want to dance. Well, I had to go to the bathroom anyway. " 3 c year was also the first time Bob was thrown out of Hood, but not the last. Youngster year saw Bob, along with Tip and Woj. develop the good grades theory. He had the bus receipts to prove it. Bob started 2 c year by joining the EMBC. He also developed a close relationship with the company officer " What do you mean I ' m through here. Major? " So much for 2 c Mess Night. Bob spent a lot of time at Hood. He found a garage and parked his car. First class summer Bob changed his initials to P W. Take many plane rides, Bob? Can I hold a sword? Club Coblentz was Bob ' s ending, but at least he went out dressed well. He still managed to log many a night at the OClub 1 c year. Hey Bob. we ' 11 all hang around to see who the best man is.

Pssst - don ' t tell anyone but Mike likes knives. He loves ' em! He ' s not put off by leather either. I was personally disappointed to become his roommate only to find out that his favorite expression is " not now, I have a headache.

He made a double name for himself piebe summer when be became known as Mr Nardi, Nardi. Pete was a pioneer in many ways, becoming tbe only guy to evade Black Sunday, and tbe first to wear a Japanese During his first Army-Na y game. Pete discovered bis reai roots, when he learned that ' getting trashed gave him Chinese eyes. Being a loyal American, Nards firmly resolved to party on cokes from then on. Youngster year Nards got " married " to Jeanne, and happily remained so the rest of his time at USNA. He also managed to settle into the " youngster syndrome " . Second class year sa Nards getting into " televised education. " as his name appeared in the Star Trek log more and more frequentlv. He managed to purchase a " rice burner " with his car loan, and it was soon baptized by the boys. During this year be also moved his base of operations from Miami to Arnold, spending most of bis leave time there. Coasting into first class year. Nards spent most of his weekends at " dad ' s " house helping bis roommate " beef up " bis car. During the lucid intervals when the wife was home, Nards disappeared far from sight but be always managed to remain one of the boys. After graduation, Nards plans to be a surface liner, destined for a Spruance-class destroyer. From his roommate of four years, thanks for being there. Beat of lack. FES Christian Thomas Noah Chris Rohnert Park, California Electrical Engineering, Nuclear Subs The computer whiz kid hails from aunny California. He was shy and innocent when be first arrived, but being aror.nd tbe likes of Perry. Horace, and Dave changed all that. He ' s still a good kid, but just knows how to have Chris was tbe first person in tbe whole company to have hia o»ti personal computer here. He buys tbe svstems and then takes them apart and builds them from scratch. If be wasn ' t here, he ' d probably be putting IBM out of business. However, as be got more computers, he got less hair, and we didn ' t let him forget it. True love came in second class year, and it wasn ' t much longer after that when be decided to go nuke power Chris is an Electrical Engineer in tbe top one-fifth of his class, so there was little doubt he would get selected for nuke. Just one more thing to add to his high character Chris has one of tbe most beautiful cars I ' ve ever seen. Chris will have a lot of fun marrying Robin and driving around in bis red Formula Firebird to wherever tbe nuclear submarine force directs him. Good luck in tbe years ahead. EGB Kurt Brian Olsen Mongo Annapolis, Md. Applied Science, Seals Kurt graduated from H.S. and came all of two miles to USNA to follow his family tree. Starting as a plebe with no neck, he spent bis time worrying about road trips in tbe Volvo. Most of his time in tbe hall was spent brawling with bis roommates, destroying everything. Mongo was always willing to go drinking - he even offered to get free drinks, tbe problem was he usually got them while everyone else got charged double. Kurt moved on in his career to make trips to PSU and check the grass conditions with his pan ts. He also invested in a Jeep to be like bis fellow Annapoli red-necks, but the jeep came to an end when be helped Jeff fly hke " Superman " . He always cared about Jeff even when tbe shelf and speaker fell on Jeffs head. Kurt ' s first question was if his sentimental bottle broke. Kurt moved on in his later years to take care of all his friends by having the house microwave always ready while tbe driveway became a parking lot on weekends. Mongo was also good at catching women too, he had many of them and even got presents from some such as bottles, red roots, and free meals. A ' vette was next in line and it was very popular with the local police as it gave them chances for chase tests in their cars. Kurt ' s other endeavors included such things as rumbles in Main St.. fighting the PSU football team and acting as a taxi-agent to Q-Town. Kurt is now off to become a Seal and we are all sure tbe " tough guy " will do well - we will all miss him especially Spoon. DaJ Marco Antonio Pagnanelli Huntington Beach, California General Engineering, Surface Line Marco arrived at Annapolis from sunny Southern California in tbe summer of 1980. He bad a somewhat difficult time adjusting to the rigors of plebe life. He was ranked last and next to tbe last by both of bis plebe summer squad leaders. His grease chits contained many phrases like; " continues to be a sweat. . . . chokes on basic plebe rates. " For Marco, plebe athletics brought him adversity in many shapes and sizes. Most of those adverse sizes ranged from 6 ' -4 ' to 6-5 ' in stature and weighed close to 250 pounds. He was used and abused as the scout team quarterback that serviced the varsity team each day. But plebe year passed and better times for Marco arrived. As a youngster, in the first Navy game of the season against the Citadel, he scored two touchdowns. With football rolling, academic troubles began tapping his resources. Marco then switched majors from chemistry to general engineering and tbe academics from that point on went well (despite S-3 Vining bombardment). Football continued to go very well for Marco as be traveled over moat of the country competing against some of the top teams in the nation. He scored touchdowns and threw for touchdowns. But it all ended where it began, against the Citadel, as a broken leg prematurely finished his fine career as a Navy quarterback. Now Marco will return to sunny Southern California in tbe t of 1984 as a SWO bound ensign. Thirteenth Company 367 Scott Grove Spooner Spoon Williamsport, Pennsylvania Applied Science, Surface Warfare Good old Spoon came down from the hills of WiUiamaport to follow in poppa Hirk ' s footsteps. He atarted plebe year, but bad more liberty then, than as a firsty. Yeah. Spoon ' s first priority was to stay a redneck, ao be got his jeep. His jeep has brought him many good times, even wondering who was driving. Only problem with the jeep was when Ponae wanted to go to McDonald ' s. The big thing in Spoon ' s life though were his many All America Teams. Most noteworthy was golf, but unknown to many he was also on the two week 150 team, king rag team, expert sniffer, NCAA wrestling champ, and moat of all the Bar Stool Diving Champ, he got a nice noae as a trophy. Spoon even spent one weekend at PSV as the placekick holder for the Patriots. Well, a certain truck driver came into this story and old CB MOMMA baa kind of tsken Spoon away from us. But, he still baa some time for hia stepmother. Black Momma, and occasion- ally gets to see the rents. We will ail mias Spoon while he is out floating on a grey tug, but most of all Mongo will mias telling him which way the beach is. Spoon will go far. We will all miss him. DaJ Jeffrey Thomas Ringel Jersey Maplewood, New Jersey Operation Analysis, Marine Air When Jeff first arrived to USNA we all knew we were in for something . . . exactly what we didn ' t know. Being a former NAPster Ringel had bis military stuff down pat. With his ever present 5 o ' clock shadow, Ringel applied his NAPster training and the help of fellow Jersey boys and survived plebe year. During the week Jers spent bis hours working out, studying, stopping intruders (jspecially Marine Officers), and being room referee . how anyone could calmly stand through a constant barrage of books, lamps, shoes . . . we will never know. His weekends were spent on shopping aprees as a plebe, punching friends in bars, " gree coffee and a cheese sandwich " , and drinking Guineas. Even Jeffs boxing debut couldn ' t convince him and be was always throwing punches at everything and everyone. His most fascinating trick was the flying act from Kurt ' s jeep . . . the only problem was that he bad to land. After a few weeks as Frankenstein the Jersey Redneck was back to dancing and balancing on the third floor banister. His roommate loyalty was never questioned, who else would take the full force of a fallen speaker to the bead just to aave a sentimental bottle. Jeff will always be remembered as a hardworking, dedicated individual that could build up your morale even when bia was down. With his attitude of " the sen-ice is the greateat " Jeffrey has what it takes to be a Marine. James A. Scannell Jamie State College, Pennsylvania Applied Science, Surface Warfare Jamie came to VSNA from the grasp of Joe Paterno and PSU. His idea was to play football. Academics, coach House, the Nose. Dumbo and 3 knee operations later, be was still playing, scoring TD ' s vs. ARMY and managing 4tb in the Heisman his senior year. Besides F-ball, Dude was well known for his refined manners and harvesting ability acquired through the fine upbringing of Black Momma, Capt. C. and his step-dad Byrd. Never one to forget bis home-folk. Jamie made many trips back with his buddies to impress his friends. The ability to return in 15 min., Bergie in reverse. Art festival weekends, and cowboy boots at Beta are all bis doings. Without a car. Jim ' s truck riding and thumbin ' ability were unsurpassed. When he did get bis old man ' s car his interest wandered to peppy cars. Although this only touches on what Dude will be remembered by. he has the best red-eye and can sure set Mongo off Pbonebills keep the Faith. 1-4-3 Dude Frank E. Sutton Frank (Bobo, Tank) San Antonio, Texas Management, Surface Warfare Frank hails from San Antonio, Tx., merely a stones throw from the Mexican border . . . so that ' s how he got here. Plebe year Frank discovered the pleasures of beer and indulged wholeheartedly into tta endeavors. Always an athletic person, Frank tried a variety of sports including handball, ISO ' s, lacroase, and powerlifting. Youngater year Frank discovered a new joy . . . women. Dalghren ball aoon became bia favorite spot. However, none of the relation- ships be made lasted very long. It wasn ' t until 2 c year that he met " the nurse " . He was sitting in the bottom of a glass of beer in the Little Campus Inn when be saw her through the haze. It was then that he realized there was more to life than studying, working hard, and becoming a lifetime member of the brigade hispanic recruiting team. From the beginning. Frank knew be was destined to possess a " muscle car " . After seeing the " road warrior " he realized that more than ever He just had to have a fuel-injected V-8 Interceptor. So he got the closest thing he could find . . . a black ' 65 V-S mustang complete with in-cabin exhaust, allowing both driver and passenger to enjoy the benefits of carbon monoxide air- conditioning.

Cars were everything to bim; there were cars on tbe walls and on the blotters. Of course women were also of big importance to Mike. There was Miss Ml. his hometown flame who earned tbe VT-3J sticker on her picture. Miss L. who decided he would never return from a sub cruise. Miss M2. who had 5 other boyfriends, and Miss S (from CA). who asked for his address so that she could give it to her sister to write bis roommate The happiest day in Mike ' s life (the Jimmylegs ' . too ' ) was when he got bis Z28 Camaro pace car He liked the car so much that he locked it up for a yetw But his car led to problems: monthly gas bills. Mike finally achieved a solution one day in Jan ' 84. Mike ' s 10 year goal was attained on service selection night a Spruance class destroyer Mike ' s dedication and profession- alism make him a good man for the job Good luck and best wishes. Dude! Paul M. Beaumont Bo Fort Lauderdale. Florida Aeronautical Engineering, Aerospace, Navy Pilot Paul came to us from Naps well versed in tbe details of plebe summer He showed us how to do everything: make the beds, do the laundry: once for himself and once for his roommate. With his eyes set on flying lighters. Bo pursued aero engineering, much to bis QPR ' s detriment, and be and Meaf remained one step ahead of the ac boards throughout all four years. Paul ' s first love was the Drum and Bugle Corps, which he avidly participated in for two years. His second class year he met his second love. Christine, whom he has also acidly pursued. Prior to Christine. Paul did not know tbe difference between love and pizza. Bo ' s a multitalented boy: filming and directing the youngster and second class movies, taking the O.C. out of OCT C. and stunt driving outside gate 8. When Paul was not hitting curbs with bis car. be was running down innocent girls on the ski slope learning how to ski. Paul also insured himself of good nd class by •tting up his grease company commander with bis fiancee ' s gorgeous sister Bo has been a great friend and roommate Now that tbe four years are almost finished, we wish Paul tbe best of luck in Naval Aviation.

Horst and Ginny instilled in him the pride and professionalism it takes to be a part of the elite Nuclear Navy. We all knew Andy would be one of the best ever since the day he was smart enough to throw the dixie cup on top of Herndon (nice shot!). As Andy moved into youngster year he began to live up to his German heritage by trying to prove that he could stand up after drinking three beers. Yep, " Mee and Andy " picked up many a hot four teen -year -olds on the slopes of Seven Springs. Once Andy put on the goggles the brick came a ' shouting. Andy sure made for good company at a meal, if you could get him to utter a sound between breaths. Of course even then you couldn ' t get close enough to bear bis mumbles because of his large wing span. After the first half of the dynamic duo was lost to the Ax. Andy was left to the mercy of the Mech " E " department and the Rocket. But he survived, thanks to all the quiet study time he got while his roomie was sleeping. Andy was always a man of few words but when he did say something nobody listened anyway. Well, we ' ve been through alot together over the last 4 Ts.. and all I can say is the Academy did me right by giving me you as a roommate. Take care Admiral Ralph W. Bower New Orleans, Louisiana English, Surface Warfare Ralph came to USNA from New Orleans with three primary objectives: 1) to become an airline pilot 2) to buy a Porsche 3) to read more paperbacks than any other Mid before him. Plebe year Ralph concentrated on reading paperbacks and finding ways to miss as many early morning saim practices as possible. He also learned the hard way that swimming talents do not necessarily apply to gymnastics. An English major was not a hard choice for Ralph considering his addiction to reading. Youngster year FiaJph continued to read and swim, but he also discovered Jackie, Bob Hope helped to foreshadow Ralph ' s engagement by broadcasting his romance on national t.v. During his second class year Ralph survived an Ac-board, lost his chance to fly, quit swimming, and bought his Porsche. By taking out two loans Ralph began his tradition of debt. This tradition exposed itself first class year in the form of an engagement ring, new paint, tires, wheels, and a new car stereo system. Service selection came and Ralph swallowed his threats of " Canada, before Surface line " and chose a destroyer Ralph ' s last major hurdle was the PCR, and he cleared it with style, earning himself three additional tries at passing it. Ralph, fair winds and following seas to you, and keep striving for the maximum Visa limit. Thomas M. Campbell T. C. Farmingdale, New York Marine Engineering, Nuclear Power T.

Coomber Eddie Huntington Beach, California Physical Science, Submarines Al ' s nickname, Eddie, came early in his career as a mid, due to his incredible resemblence to Eddie Munster.

Al found academics no problem, taking 25 hours a semester, only Al could never remember where he put his watch, wallet, calculator, etc. As a youngster. Al took to vociferous correction of the CO. CDR. Record holder for most tours for one slip of the brain, " that ' s the bottom tine. " Al ' s study of physics enabled him to speak at the speed of light, too bad no one understood. Al finished his USNA education second class year. On to Johns Hopkins for a MS in EE. Always knew you wanted to be a EE. Al had fun on Plebe Detail, almost as much fun as his plebes had. " Uncle Al ' s Summer Camp " . During Ac Year ' 84 Al commuted in his lime green rabbit to Bait. Did that thing ever run?

After a horrendous start plebe year, (sorry for the bilge buddy) Brad developed the winning formula to get him through: the rank. How could they bug you if you ' re asleep? If be wasn ' t in the rack. Brad was always up for a party or a good bull session - anything but study! Except for a brief time when he thought he was an alcoholic, he was the number one drinking partner among his companymates. A promising career in soccer and lacrosse was cut short when Brad blew bis knee out youngster year. His constant good cheer was an inspiration to us all and he could always be counted on for some good advice. " Don ' t sweat, do it later. " Although Brad wanted to be a good midshipman and do things the Navy way. be always seemed to get himself into trouble. How was he supposed to know the wall be jumped over at 4 am was the Supe ' s? EMBC here I come. Academy life would have been much easier for Brad if he could have found the right girl - not that he didn ' t try his best, moat girls just needed more time than he did. Brad did manage to scrape his knees a few times though. Well we made it through. I don ' t know how, it ' s been great despite what they tried to cram down our throats - stripe me please! Thanks for the cool bead - needed it. Here ' s to the future and the low stress job (baiting fishhooks in Hawaii) I know some day we ' 11 get it. Get hot and do well in the Corps.

Unfortunately, Mark decided that subs just weren ' t his bag after youngster cruise when he not only lost his tan, but also hia girlfriend. Mark managed to row crew and get good grades plebe year, but youngster year the " mountainman " decided it was better to chase women (Susy Socialist) and go skiing in Maine than to sit in the crew shells over spring break. With second class year on the horizon, Mark met and instantly fell in love with the first Maryland coed that he met. and she managed to get him fried for PDA twice in the same week. What a team - The Lettuce Woman and Mark! At tailgaitors they proved to be the craziest partiers we had ' at least ' til the keg was tapped and the charcoal was lit, then they bad to leave. The Lettuce Woman is so loyal she ' d follow him anywhere (tuition ' s cheaper in Florida anyway). Mark has boated many ski trips for the 14th Company ski bums.

Philip John Erickson Mr. I, Rat, Rodent Bothell, Washington Computer Science, Navy Pilot Phil took Plebe Year by storm, developing close professional ties with the firsties. Phil set the standards by shining his shoes for Gino and playing air guitar for Golf Company. After being cut from the baseball team, Phil began to train for the indoor track team, running around in his underwear screaming. " I ' m 18 Danny. I ' m 18. " Youngster year gave Phil the leisure to show us all what a suave guy he really ia. He poured beer on a girl ' s head because she didn ' t want to dance, and then challenged half the bar to a fight. Phil ' s fierce competitive spirit knew no bounds. On the field or playing quarters be gave it hia all (Ack! Barf! N. D. ' 83) If Phil couldn ' t win real games, he made up his own. Stump the Star. Crutch Walk. Inside Elbow. His relationahips with girls were a lot like him; all short, but all special. First class year showed Phil ' s outstanding brand of leadership. He success- fully completed first semester as CAO discharging all his duties from his bed. Seriously, Phil was a great guy to have on your side, especially if you were winning. Phil hopes to pursue a career in Naval Aviation.

He had the incredible ability to sense the mood that everyone else was in and be just the opposite, thus earning the name " cosine.

Rob picked Systems in order to make bis stay here as difficult as possible, but he proved equal to the task even though sometimes it was touch and go.

Being sensible, he chose General Engineering so he could " work his way upward " and change bis major when the time came. Well, it didn ' t (aie long, and he moved " up " to Physical Science so he could apply himself " more effectively " . Mark chose the Marine Corps Option Cruise during his First Class summer to really find out if the Marines were for him. He enjoyed the abundance of sunshine in Hawaii and discovered that nobody parties better than the Marines. From then on, it was Marine Corps or bust!

Brian never had it easy and always faced some sort of tragic event due to his truck and the red lights. However, in the end Brian beat all the odds and tore T-shirts all the way to the top. Good luck Brian, the Marine Corp finally got a good man. SMC P.S. I tried to write without reaching into Brian ' s dirty laundry, but I couldn ' t fill 20 lines with good stuff. So I must tell you that Brian ' s feet don ' t smell half as bad as JBM ' s. Paul A. Povlock The Pov WiUiamsviJle, New York Marine Engineering, Submarines Coming from Buffalo, you know Paul started off on the wrong foot already. But the " Pov " had a talent of overcoming many obstacles (Actually, more like stumbling over them.) During the first week of plebe summer, Paul did only one thing right, and that was to arrive on 1-Day on time. You might say he made himself well known to the firsties. Paul was only looking for three things in life: Submarines, plenty of rack time, and a little red headed girl. He managed to get all three and is still going for more. He never did like to let the others get ahead of him, and so quickly joined the Car Crash Club. Paul was a man who knew his place and stayed there (i.e. the rack). Many of us are going to miss the " Pov " . Then again, many of us won ' t! The only thing we know for sure is that Paul will be among his own kind in the fleet. (Bubbleheads). Russia, watch out!

As a plebe Mike literally sailed through just about every military evolution while nearly drowning academically. Nobody could figure out who be paid to take bis SATs. When youngster year rolled around he showed up driving a brown bomb (not to be confused with bis BMW) with Vacstionland plates and a bird stuck in the radiator. Many great road trips were planned, but it seemed the warwagon spent nearly every weekend at Goucber College. Fortunately Mike ' s tenth or eleventh true love, I can ' t remember which, went to Spain during second class year which allowed us to expound him to the virtues of bachelorhood.

He tried bumper stickers and flags, but they all came down Youngster year Jim continued as a member of the D B until the Air Force competition. He then led the mass exodus of corps members in search of a QPR. Second class year Jim found that there was more to life than Aerospace Engineering, ao he joined the Judo Club. Jim ' s separated shoulder, pulled muscles, and bruises attest to bis aweaome talent in this sport. First class year Jim found a more productive way to spend his time: Afternoon workouts with coach Lenz. In addition. Jim could finally hang the flags and bumper stickers stored since Plebe year Jim also proved to be a fine correspondent first class year, writing at least four letters for each one received.

Then came that annual " Spring Fever " of his and he made the mistake of doing a little partying out in town after taps one night. That was a heckuva Commissioning Week . . . Youngster year looked like a time to just sit back and stay out of everyone ' s way. Unfortunately we got in the way of a certain SEAL officer one night and Stace ended up paying for it for 2 years. He also liked to have a good time at the Army-Navy game, occasionally going a little overboard (Mr. Morlock still doesn ' t like vou for that ' .!) To say that this guy loved to workout would be an understatement. He had a permanent spot in the weightroom and when he wasn ' t there he could be found under the desk doing situps or against the wall doing pushups There is no doubt that he could be very happy if the only things he had were a weightbench, a blender, and an unlimited supply of milk and granola cereal.

Looking at bis long, blonde hair, I thought maybe he was an ROTC Midshipman who had taken a wrong turn. After a short but fierce struggle resulting in a haircut and change into a uniform for Steve. I was amazed to find that he was two years older than I was. I didn ' t worry about it for long because the ghost, being a sailor, disappeared for the rest of the year, except for a run in with the Company Sub-Commander before Army wher e neither could remember the others name or even if they were in the same company. Since Plebe year, Steve has reappeared and tried to instill in me his love for sailing, sportscars, loud stereos and Florida. I in turn have tried to cure him of his chronic anorexia with much less success.

After coming to this conclusion he set his sights on Nuclear Power (what else?! " ). The REALM then became a place for long hours of studying and other strange rituals. Bob also worked very bard on keeping bis record intact of never taking a P.E. test on time. He had so many " sudden " injuries that medical stopped asking questions and just signed his chits. Bob met the love of his life early so he became pretty tied up on weekends. Second class year was full of trauma as Clarky had to battle both Rocket Read and his fear of the tower jump. Tower jump EI helped but no amount of EI could save him from the Rocket. He also built an infamous reputation with the plebes and lived in fear at a pep rally or any time a rumble broke out.

There was some dispute as to whether Florida counted as part of the South or if Pennsylvania-born parents count as a southern heritage, but Czech had his little of confederate flag to prove it, so we let it slide. Czech ' s two great loves in life are the Marine Corps and country music. You could always bear some good country music coming from his room, punctuated by an occasional " AAVUR- RAUGH " ; plebe year, it was provided by bis fine guitar playing, afterwards, it was supplemented by his stereo at full volume. Czech had little use for courses such as Navigation, but judging by the wrong turn he took looking for the bead after the dining-in plebe year, he needed all the help he could get. (Hey Wise-guy. bow ' s your briefcase doing these days?) Czech also had difficulty with technical endeavors such as rigging a apiffy or a drill belt as a plebe. so when it came time to chose majors, it was Poly Sci for our gyrene. He was perfect for this field as evidenced by his remarkable memory, especially of all our academy experiences, every single one!

This was, of course, in an effort to instill those noble Mid-Western values on the tender, naive Plebes of 15th CO. When ' Mando became one of the exhaulted l c of Bancroft he found a new past time, that of ribbing all of the Southern Boys of 15 with his outrageous views of the Civil War and the South- Naturally this made him no friends during Dallas football games, when his ribbing approached true art in its ' form.

The only problem though was that he was now in Annapolis, Md. and in the Navy. Yet, through extra curricula activities (le. weights, radios, and extended liberties) be somehow managed to survive plebe year. With the tone set for his entire stay at USNA, Moogie (from a Cbeech and Cbong excerpt) changed only two things. He got serious about women and academics (in that order). One could never be sure of which one was rising faster — his list of girls or his grade point average. However, one thing is for sure though. Doug received more " outside " mail than any one else. So, you be the judge. While it is true that Doug had his fair share of good times, he had them in the midst of friends. No one could ever challenge Doug ' s friendship for he was a friend and always will be in the true sense of the word.

This was not enough, however, for Ted nith his 90 pound frame of twisted steel and sex appeal spent his plebe year as a member of the crew team Weren ' t we all shocked when third class vear came, and this pillar of professionalism ut to be a closet youngster. In to the change in his professional nother change had taken place, and I that Ted had now found " the secret " to academics, and has been a " 4.0 " student ever since. Many were the nights when one could find Ted and bis proteges dehing into academic endeavors in the company office- Tbey disguised their geek -like habits by rarely having their books open, making an inordinate amount of noise, and taking many backgam- mon breaks. Second class year. Ted ' s profeaaionalism took a firm swing upward; in fact, it was so firm and so far upward that during plebe detail, the Class of 1987 was asying that their beloved sub commander, Teddy, was about the firmest and hardest guy around. Whenever Ted ' s friends watch a 007 mone with him. Ted ' s favorite genre of film, he brings to their attention the fact that Bond ' s suavity with the ladies reminds him of himself. As evidence to this fact, he gathered a small group of young women, from Bancroft, which bis friends fondly refer to as Teddy ' s Angels. In all seriousness Ted. it has been our pleasure. You ' ve taught us to laugh when we felt like crying and to smile when all we had was a frown. Thanks. God bless, and good luck. RP. JS . PS John A. Prokopiak Pro Syracuse, New York Applied Science, Surface Line John came to USNA by way of prep school in Minnesota. Realizing that plebe year was a far cry from what be was used to ( Van Halen and his girlfriend back home), John got involved m other things (ie. room to room food fights and WRNV radio). By years end, John had made a drastic change. Now being a shaft dweller. John was right where he wanted to be — Coolsville. With the volume half-way up and the lights turned out, it was not unusu l to find Pro involved in the Friday night concert hour. Yet, this would only last until Johnny Carson came on For at this time the newing apparatus (t.v.l went on. It is not hard to see why Pro and hia academics spoke a different language. As time went by. John diversified. He saw different girls (Oneota and Capt. ' s Row) and got the car of his dreams iZ-28). He even managed to throw in a semester of academics. However. through all of this. John maintained his friendships. Good luck Pro m wherever the high seas may lead you. Donuts Natalie A. Quick Nat Long Island, New York Management. General Unrestricted Line Nat came to the Academy from Bayahore. uncertain as to what the future might bring but certain that she would make it. .After getting cut from the Volleyball team plebe year, she worked until getting elected Captain in her first class year. Nat is the type of person that could give you looks that could be easily misinterpreted (no - not the bad amell on a bus trip look). What might appear to be non-caring, snobbish, and itchy, are looks known by those who know her well as caring, sensitive (hah!) and sometimes half awake. I have not known a time when Nat did not stop to lend a listening ear whenever her friends needed it. We laughed, cried, bitched, criticized, lost games and boyfriends together but most of all we have always been best friends, since we are the only ones who will put up with each other But. now our lives are following two different paths with many miles to go and many promises to keep both to ourselves and to others. However. I am certain that our paths will always find a connecting point. Remember Nat. bold fast to your dreams, for a woman without a dream is like a broken-winged bird that cannot fly. Good luck in D.C. and best of luck to both you and John. AHT first met Nat Nyce when she stopped me " accidentally " during plebe year. Little did I know then, that we ' d be like brother and sister for the next 4 years. A woman of the world with worldly advice. Friends till we die, I promise . . . Mac Nyce. Four years was a long time, but good friends made it worth it. Joey and Laur made everyday just a little bit strange. Mac Nyce always made me smile. Mug and Vick who are just plain strange!

An aspiring track star. Jeff immediately joined JV Cross Country and remained unknown by the upperclase throughout plebe year. When speaking of his first fleet experience you could say Jeff missed the boat. Recovering from his first, but not last. UA he settled in to life aa an upperclass. Among his greater accomplish- ments, he was a charter member of the Edwin Diamond Fan Club faithfully seeking a moment of sleep from every precious free bit of time. Keeping in the spirit of Navy. Jeff learned to avoid serious relationships and has since found a girl in almost every port. To be sure every cruise was eventful he went FOREX during 1 c summer and escaped Canada safely in the end. As an Ekon. Major, Jeff spent four years perfecting the art of deficit spending. Being an incurable romantic, be is quite excited about the Destroyer Navy.

I really don ' t know bow to sum up our relationship since it never has been too rational. First of all. how stable can a friendship be when it comes about from being members of the same team, and the fencing team at that. What an exhilarating sport and what about those male fencers on the other team - what men! I guess we all know where the term the gay blade comes from. Remember the Major and those one minute ice showers, admonishments in the Brigade Bulletin, and no jeans. We sure showed her didn ' t we, you in your red mini skirt and me in black leather. Looking back I realize how lucky you were to have me as a friend, that snowball would never have killed her anyway. Remember the wild Key West trip? How exotic that week was with the shark, jellyfish attack, Ned and Gary and let ' s not forget the killer conch train. Remember that if every- thing else fails, Jo. you have a promising career in dog racing; betting not running. Go Rathole! Remember fencing with Benito Mussolini and Bette Davis in the same day. Remember also never to play catch by yourself with a horseshoe on a string. What I ' ll remember is a terrific friendship that has nothing but ups and too many laughs to ever set down.

Ever since youngster year and stereos, you couldn ' t fmd Phil without his country music. Four years later our big grinned buddy from the Lone Star state is the Academy ' s most (only) marketable engineer.

Dedbur- nit, just as Phil was fixin ' to get hisself a slot in CEC. the doggone waiver didn ' t come through. Phil was upset for awhile: but then he thought to himself, " Shoot fire! I done sleep walked myself into the most sought after billet from the Academy. " The Lord must be smiling upon Phil, and although we ' re envious, we must admit that Phil deserves it. He has been a diligent disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ, and although the fleet will never have the good fortune of Phil being one of its leaders, indirectly it will receive the benefits of his caring leadership through the positive in- fluence he has been on all the future officers whose Uvea he has touched.

The former Eagle Scout made such an impression on hia first squad Idr. that she called him " noticeably unnoticeable " . What bis background did for him was to give him the ability to room with anyone. He was the referee for two years of Frankenstein vs. the Testtube Baby and spent two years keeping Sharpy from getting a Section 8. When it was time to pick majors, Dave gave up Crew for Systems with this decision began the greatest bunt for gouge in Academy history. With help from Henry Bill, Dave forged bis way through Systems. When Dave wasn ' t gouge hunting he was accumulating nicknames like: Bos ' n Osen. the Rabbit, Ra. power Boater. After 4 c year. Dave was picked by Uncle A to be the first midn deep-selected for Capt when he was named Capt. Midnight for his habit of arriving at odd hours of the night. Dave was very popular with the ladies while at USNA. Aher two years of Chops and late night visits, bis parents breathed a sigh of relief when they found be was dating a New Hampshire scholar.

Those first few months ofplebe summer we muddled our way through gnarly, bitchin, primo, cougat. and of course, rad. Actually, it wasn ' t so much the quantity of words brought over from San Diego, but the density of each sentence those first few months was pretty confusing. Initiation into Gamma Sigma Sigma came early for Dave. Membership is not easy, but Dave was a shoe-in with a hefty four points above his expected average after the first semester. Afteraii. Dave was a born aeronau- tical engineer, and was always able to spew out the right formula for the test. Along with the G-dot came many other good deals for Dave. Youngster cruise he was off to Pearl Harbor, first class cruise was spent in Australia and Dave got extra lucky when be was sent to Air Force. Dave turned over a new leaf as be traded in his Mustang for the exquisite, finely tuned German sportscar. As a banana it did fine, but dress it up first class summer and Dave just couldn ' t take it out. except with the help of a tow truck. Most people are satisfied with just changing the oil every three thousand miles, but Dave always went for the complete tune-up and so the girl had to go also and a fresh one installed in her place. With first class year Dave hooked up with Captain Intensity and hairy and intense came into his life. But the Rad lived on and now Dave ' s beading for Pensacola. the peach is calling him.

Mark has been running around in circles ever since he left the maternity ward of Anne Arundel General 22 years ago. A token NAPS graduate, he eventually made his way back to Annapolis. As a plebe year walk-on. he ran his way to prominence by becoming captain of Navy ' s Cross Country team and a multiple letterman in both indoor and outdoor track. While hia dedication won him the respect of coaches and teammates alike, it also won him an invitation to his OB7I girlfriend ' s wedding. When be wasn ' t running. Mark traveled to keep going. At times he seemed convinced his Honda was a Ferrari, laying a nine mile skid in a ten mile ride. Seeking to expand horizons, he traveled to Europe, where he acquired a taste for certain Swiss sweets. Hia other voyages included Spain (meals of tequila and bread), New Orleans, and who could forget Pasadena, with its starry nights and Christie clear mornings. Never an overly excited or terribly exuberent person, many were surprised when Mark chose Special Warfare for his service selection — you know better but I know him. Best of luck with the Seals.

One of the pillars of the team (what with 6 letters and 2 seasons left), he took some flak for not heading out after-hours with Newms. Poodle, and Scummer but after the gun sounded he was right where he was needed.

Plebe year. Bill ' s natural agility allowed him to become proficient at going over things; on the o-course or just AROUND the yard. During the next two years Bill found that he had an excessive amount of free time on his hands, (much to the sorrow of his friends victims). To fill this void be embarked on a number of hobbies and ventures of self-improvement, (much to the sorrow of his shower curtain). In the pursuit of these many, varied, and sometimes short-lived endeavors he became something of a master chef and a competent distiller. Finally Bill found a home in the Men ' s Volleyball Club where he quickly rose to the rank of president and fashion consultant- Bill kept us guessing right up to service selection before he finally did the smart thing and went Navy Air So Bill ' s off to Pensacola with the cherished hope that major geographical upheavals will cause a large part of the southwest to fall into the sea. creating the potential for NAS.

Everyone knows, however, that he actually fares from all over the VS., seeing as his father is a cohnel in that " other " senice. At any rate, he is an enthusiastic supporter of America ' s team. As a pleber, WHF was a sailing jock. His biggest problem was that be could not find a wetsuit thick enough to keep his poor old bones warm. He has this terrible problem called: " I fall out of boats a lot, " a good thing he is not going surface line. WHF became quickly dissatisfied with this and decided to concentrate on academics and intramurals. As a naval architecture major, WHF saw it would be difficult to get through academically unscathed, so he joined the I ' ll pull a C out of my ass in the last week club and has been a thriving member ever since. In intramurals, WHF is never afraid to accept a challenge; be took on the coaching reaponsibilities of the 17th company B-ball team and led them to a stellar 1-9 season: not everyone can be taller than six feet, besides, they beat 18. WHF is probably moat famous for his recital of " 1001 aggie jokes " to Lt. Aggie at our Christmas party. I think Lt. Aggie was not too amused. The thing about USNA which disappointed Freebird the most was its lack of a ski team. You see, William holds delusions of being Jean-Claude KiUy. Some day he may really have bis Austin -Healey, but I doubt it. I won ' t say anything about his many wild women or several exotic religions because be must live with this for the remainder of his days.

Needless to say, none of the above sur ' }ved during his four year residency in .Annapolis. Academics came easy to the Boy Wonder, as Dave managed to make Dean ' s list every now and then with a minimal amount of studying.

First class year saw Bill grow more at peace with the world, if not the Navy. Perhaps Michaele had something to do with this. But make no mistake — Bill will never become too " mellow and worldy " , as evidenced by bis aptitude for " macho games " , the " van " at Myrtle Beach, and bis membership in the exclusive Southern California swim club (Pasadena.

His goal was to serve his country as a Naval Officer. But the deeper reason for coming to Annapolis was to reap the benefits of a free education. This being the esse, then Dave has succeeded. Gifted with a keen awareness of his surroundings and a quick wit verging on the bizarre, Lonnie was a natural bull major. Able to form an opinion on any issue, Dave convinced the polisci department to let him complete the academics here in three and a half years. He escaped the last semester of Ciratie year as a Real College Student at Maryland. Even the extra workload (rack time) on regimental staff couldn ' t slow Dave in his pursuit of the ladies. Established in an Arnold base camp, Dave wandered in and out of weekend forays from Baltimore to Belgium, always on the Fun Wagon. It took Dave nearly three years to convince himself that the Academy was the right choice. Driving t nks in the Army disappeared, since be discovered Navy air to be the true Gateway to a Great Way of Life. Visions of flying a mahogany supply corps desk faded at pre-coms. It seems Dave ' s eyesight just wasn ' t bad enough. A true friend and a great listener to any classmate with a problem, Dave could be counted to get the job done anytime.

Plebe year went well enough with numerous practical jokes being perfected upon " Cum " and Mark. Mac kept himself busy youngster summer - reaffirming his love of " the Corps " on the oldest ship in the fleet, inspecting the Myrtle Beach bars (both nightclub and iron), and hanging from the cords of his ' chute at Banning. The start of ac year met him with an acute case of youngsteritis and many more classics yet to come. Dave held a membership in the Hilton ' s artic beer drinker ' s club, was a resident of one of the " best " room ' s in the company and was always one to start studying early (in the morning). 2 c year found Dave somewhat preoccupied with academics and his future Mrs., but still possessing a great sense of humor and a knack for making us laugh. 1 c cruise saw Dave pay bis dues over in Hawaii finally getting a chance to be with the few, the proud. After all didn ' t he come to USNA for drill? Just ask ' of the guy ' 87. much time studying, Mac often did better by winging it. as his improving grades showed.

Robin could usuaUy be found at the sailing center and. despite the evil influences in 20, Robin made it through plebe year. Youngster year saw a switch to the big boats and a very light academic load. The foUowing year brought Hood quals, dean ' s list, and an unexpected three day extension of spring break. So Robin, how bard is it to saU a 52 ' boat through an Atlantic storm? That summer brought even more sailing and aU night friends in port.

He was never one to party alone so he found kindred spirits with which to associate. As a matter of fact. Sterno, Mills and Ginz were seldom without spirits. Remember " Guys.

Prusinski Pru Litchfield, Minnesota Aerospace Engineering, Navy Pilot Mark Prusinski is in some ways, well, a bit different than the norma] person. For example, most people get obnoxious when they ' re drunk; Pru is obnoxious when he ' s sober, but mellow when he ' s drunk. Most people crack up. their parents ' car: Pru ' s mother cracked up his car. One way in which Mark is not unique, however, is in bis desire to Hv F-14 ' a. Mark knew he wanted to become a pilot as earlv as junior high school and shaped his career at the Academy around this desire. When it came time to pick a major, he chose Aerospace Engineering, figuring it was as close as be could get to the real thing for the moment. Another unusual thing about Mark is that he did well In this major. So well, in fact, that be found himself sweating bullets when the prospect of a nuclear draft was brought up. Mark was, not, however, so obsessed with flying that he couldn ' t take time out to enjoy other things. He joined the Glee Club and for four years terrorized the United States with its subsidiary, the " We ' re There Club. " Y ' oungstfr year he even went out with the same girl more than twice. To commemor- ate the occasion he made her bis girlfriend, and they ' ve been going out ever since. In keeping with Pru s tradition, AnnaMaria s parents hate Mark, so this may turn into a permanent affair The other love of Mark ' s life is his car, a British- Leyland MGB. His mother put it into the shop for the first time, but decidedly not for the last time: that car has already failed to start in two countries. True to form, Pru got what be wanted for service selection, and will be reporting to Pensacola one fine day m July. We wish him all the best and send him off with one of his favorite toasts: " You can pick your friends, and you can pick your nose, but you can ' t pick your friends nose.

In fact be didn ' t show up for plebe summer till Parent ' s Weekend. You can bet be wasn ' t ever late for a haircut appointment. That ' s because he never had one. Rooming with an artist was fun. Everything I tried to do in a simple, effective manner. Mark would change so it would be elegant and have " significance " . His creativeness somehow seemed to brighten up a rather standard way of life. Mark was a sort of " World Traveler " . You know " Join the Navy and Sea the World " . That he did and he got a chance to see Italy, the Philippines, and Japan. He went and bought one of those blasted imported cars. Ever try to fit a 64 ' lineman into a Toyota " " Mark ' s wanted to fly all bis life, and God blessed him with an early flight school date.

He has virtually rewritten Navy ' s basketball records, and who can forget, during plebe year, that come from behind victory over Army which he single handedly performed. Many of us will be sorry to see Rob go his own way He should do a fine job as a career officer in the LPD fleet. Imagine — CNO: Vice admiral Rob Romaine or Commandant of Midshipmen- Captain Romaine.

He spent his plebe year pulling for Navy, but finding little physical violence be moved on to the Karate Club. Here Rob found a home for two years. Noone, especially his roommates, was free from Fflam ' s frequent demonstrations of his latest Chuck Norris Kung-Fu round house death kick. But to Rob ' s credit he always knew when to pull his punches. But this was still not enough, so as a finale Rob joined the Hockey team where he could thoroughly abuse human bodies and to his dismay, his own. Away from the academy Rowse was a first round draft pick of the Peg Earl home for wayward mids. It was there that Rob fully developed the talents of beer chugging and csble viewing.

Craig spent more time helping everyone else than he did doing his OH77 work. Youngster year opened many doors for Craig as he finally made Glee Club- He soon learned the finer points of social drinking and the many uses of such things as the common drawer. Craig became a founding father of the " We ' re their club " and reached his high point by pouring a beer on his head without any one ever knowing. Craig drove into first class year with his " Shelby " and a pitcher of Manhattans, determined to live up to the motto. " If you ain ' t having fun vou ain ' t doing It right " - Craig will no doubt do it right at nuke school and continue to enjoy life to its fullest- It ' s better to be number two and have fun than be number one and work too hard.

One of the moat obvioua of these was his talent for hurting himself First it was a separated shoulder Then it was a reaeparated shoulder. Then it was an operation on a perpetually separated shoulder. Then, when Gary was finally getting over the operation, he hurt bis leg skiing The most amazing injury of all. however, was the broken foot Gary sustained while fencing. Fencing!! perhaps Gary s southern background had something to do with his success with girls. Lots of girla. Gary waa so successful, in fact, that on one occasion be found himself bringing one girl to a Navy football game and another to the tailgater afterward. Of the numerous girls who entered his life, however, only two stayed for any significant period of time.

However, the thrill of the uphill climb didn ' t last too long Leadership came easy to Kent as youngster company commander and as a squad leader the following year. Kentley ' s real personality surfaced Second Class year while rooming with Mike, when beer displaced blood in his body, especially with women around. First Class year brought Company commandersbip and deal- ing with The Lieutenant. In addition to classes, hockey occupied Kent ' s free time. Ace nearly joined the nukes, until leveler heads prevailed. Kent will make his career with hia head in the clouds as a Navy jet jockey. All of us wish the ever friendly Kent the best of luck in all he does. MS, RKM, DLL ■ Barry Robert Witte The Bear Albany, New York Chemistry, Surface (Nuclear Power) Mild mannered Barry Witte. the pride of Loudonville, New York (fortunately it ' s on the other side of the river from Troy) came to USNA with the purest of intentions, known only to himself. It took us all a little while to figure out where he was coming from. Little did the men of 17 know that once this lad put on the uniform he would become " The Bear of Witte " . The two greatest obstacles for Barry- were memorizing irrelevant plebe rates and Bleeping. This sleepless wonder would detect the change in air pressure when someone opened the door and be awake enough to tell you about it (as so often he did). Testimony can be given by all those on youngster YP cruise with Barry, who could not sleep underway. In spite of it all. the Bear was always good for his dry sense of humor. Who do you think made the fifth wing smell so bad that Friday morning? Chemistry was good for something (like retaliation) besides all those hours in the lab. Who could forget the man who turned company banking into big (non-profit) business youngster year? Barry went about his duties first class year with a zest matched by few others. He is a reliable and trusted friend. Best wishes for a successful career. See ya in Orlando. J.H.L. Geoffrey Alan Zimmer Zims Duesseldorf, West Germany Physics, Nuclear Power Plebe year and Bradford ' s history claaa were our proof of Zim ' s naval heritage and Dusseldorf was one of the easier hometowns for us to learn. A die-hard nuke from childhood, " to the core " , he played with his model sub for three years until Admiral McKee asked for sailing instructions over tea. And I was a smack? Alas, submarines were not his only love as he went through several girls worldwide before finding that the girl he ' d left in Paris was the right one after all. First Julie, then Kari and finally the gorgeous Frederique. Love that accent. A ring, fur coat, daily letters, a photo album and long distance phone calls — no wonder he calls her " the wife " . Not bard to believe he grew up with the girl. From women Geoff moved into fast cars. Keep babying that Scirocco, Zims, but I wouldn ' t wash her more than twice a week. Geoff was by no means a playboy, however, holding quite a reputation for acing courses. Maybe his genius came from those Genesis lyrics or those weekly episodes of " Cheers " . By the way Zims, how many 4.0 ' s did you pull? I lost count. Well roomie, it hasn ' t been a picnic but we did have a few good times: a " wild " party at Mary Wash, " studying " at the Library, and the babes and beers at Bogie ' s.

Aiken Snake Las Vegas, Nevada Applied Science, Navy Pilot Bob flowed in from the quiet, peaceful town of Laa Vegas. He was stunned with the fast paced Crabtown; his first encounter with Maryland girls wasn ' t until the night before 1-Day. His first day here set the tone for bis career as he was caught in the rack twice by his squad leader. Bob fooled most everybody during plebe year . . . not by behaving, but by not getting caught. He and Spinuzzi fit together like Jock itch an cruei. Bob began dragging people into restriction during plebe year. Kiiroy was the Hrst (during the old 75 and 2 days). Bob wore stars for one brief fleeting semester, then he began escaping SQPR ' s that began with a 1. Bob earned his Black " N " one Youngster Friday night along with Fred. Face, and Kilroy when they all had a simultaneous craving for tavern pretzels ( " We had a little beer sir, but that was to wash down the pretzels! " ). The fun ended only yards from the wall with Bob bleeding from the head yelling " Go guys, go! " and shielding his eyes from the policeman ' s flashlight. Bob bad a knack for being there for some girls ' last night at the academy and other girls ' first night out without their boyfriends, thus came the name Snake. Bob did his beat to re-earn the name . over and over again. Destined to be a pilot in the Aiken tradition and a fun-lover in the Lustre tradition, we ail wish him the best of luck. David A. Brumley Dave, Brums Camarillo, California Political Science, Navy Pilot Dave came to the Academy not knowing what he was getting into — he bad just heard that this was the place to go to be a pilot. He arrived from Southern California a little too laid back and mellow — at least for Serene Eighteen, with its unique definition of professionalism. 0615 was way too early for Brums, so he spent plebe year sleeping through classes. Sailing kept him off company tables for most of the year, but not out of trouble with the second class. He did all right after he learned how to play the game, and life became much easier when his roommate SuperPlebe transformed into the Face after the first year. They had some good times in the Wholigan Room, but didn ' t get too much studying done. Brums learned how to get around the rules quick enough, and was always lucky enough not to get into too much trouble. Though he lived by the law of " You Rate What You Get Away With. " he took a little long to figure out that it works better if you don ' t tell everyone about it Well it was an interesting way to spend some time on the way to flight school. D. M.

This was especially true of Dave Plebe year saw this guy as a true sweat. So much in fact, that he refused to cost the Academy $1200 in sand-blasting a " re- decorated " LA -area and Herndon monument. Youngster year he really relaxed and took advantage of the free time all Y ' oungsters receive. He wisely spent his time designing " coat-hanger-like " items, and climbing the Wall. His Tirst (that ' s right, I said first) Class A came about when he and 3 buds had an unquenchable thirst one Friday night. (Oh well, who needs liberty during June week!) There ' s a rumor that Dave ended Youngster year as winky trunk-rider, but we better not mention that here. Second class year. Dave again " minned out, " but he still managed to team up with Brums and become a truly dedicated Wholigan. Upon reaching his last year of Confinement, we lost Dave to the world of the non-returnables. Right again, Dave fell full force into LOVE. He loved this beautiful girl so much, that be was billing to give up a half semester of liberty for her. Yes. another Class A was upon him.

You really shocked everyone when they found out you drank J B on the rocks at your famous parties. If they only knew about that one adventure at 3:30 A.M.

Love, Anne Lawrence J. Clark Fred Buffalo, New York General Engineering, NFO Larry lived his plebe year on the edge of trouble. He excelled i n the physical part of plebe summer, but the mental part landed him in come-arounds with " killer " Coons He and the boys got their time from Timmy ' s down to 7 minutes. He was in constant danger as mediator in Brums i-s Face room fights. At the year ending Ocean City trip he got several scars and two nicknames - Spiderman and Fred. Fred stuck. Youngster year Fred should have jumped the fence when he had the chance. He shouldn ' t have joined the PBP Club, and he should have left his pants on at Damn Neck. June Week in his room and a summer on restrictramid settled him domi. A gratefully less eventful second class year saw- Fred and Karl abuse every person who entered their room. Fred blamed everything from bad grades to post nasal drip on the " Rocket " Read. At year ' s end he finally brought Wilma down from Buffalo. First class year Fred rarely used bis three-striper libs because it ' s not nearly as fun when you rate it. His belly grew, he got his first B in PE, and he became a true member of the Chiefs Club with Hog. Cheese and Spank. In the Big. Bad. and Ugly room he claimed both big and bad although the argument still goes on His fondest memory of his Academy days will always be the time spent with friends (when he should have been studying.) Paul R. Cochran Catonsville, Maryland Political Science, USMC When Paul stepped off the bus in downtown .Annapolis he was inspired by the diversity of people here. It was as a result of this inspiration that led Paul to take an active part in affirmative action programs here at the On the subject of women I would like to dispel a grave misconception. Paul is. in fact, a very romantic person. Youngster year saw Paul with his first Academy relationship, this was. however, short lived. Never one to accept defeat. Paul plunged into the sea of femininity and found Rocko. But this was. alas, to be but a way station another road to true love. Paul left Rocko during second class year and took up nith the Iron Maiden. The Iron Maiden has Paul so enthralled in love and excitement that he has not gone in search of anything else and the couple are still together. Paul ' s attitude toward leadership inspires awe in all who got the opportunity to observe it in action. During Plebe year he did a comprehensive study of the " Nairn Method " of leadership. He attempted to utilize this method during youngster year but found it difficult to adapt to his lifestyle. During second class year Paul stood at the forefront of leadership technology with his own " Leadership by C ontrast " . This method worked so well that many who were under his direction are now studying this method for their own second class year. Now Paul is m the MARINES, well good luck in motor-T and. as they say down south of the border. " A.M.F. " DOC Eighteenth Company 407 ss ? David O. Cooper The Rod Pebble Beach, California Physical Science, USMC David arrived at the Boat School as a spaced-out refugee from the land of the frusta and nuts. He quickly obtained the friendship of Mr Spaghetti who made it his personal duty to God and Country to drive poor little Davey out of the Academy. David survived Plebe year with the winning combination of a high and tight haircut highlighted by radical sideburns. Youngster year saw the transforma- tion of our hero into quite a womanizer as he stood voluntary watches in the Dogpen to get the first shot at the fresh meat. Second class year bro ugh t the tragic brea k up wi th his longtime California girlfriend whom be was planning to secretly marry during Christmas leave. Heartbroken, he returned to the Pen for a more reliable replacement A subsequent major change enabled David to enjoy the great Bociaj life in the Hall to its fullest. Second class year was highlighted by pleasant high-volume chats with his roommate Cack that climaxed one day in a lively pre-quarters wrestling- boxing-judo bout between the two lads. David ' s First Class year saw him realize his lifetime dream of becoming a real, live Marine. It will be interesting to observe how the Corps will handle this Sixties holdover who mellows out by playing " Puff the Magic Dragon " on his guitar. R. K. Darden Karl Aurora, Colorado Ocean Engineering, Navy Air Karl arrived at the Academy from Mile High Country full of equally high hopes and enthusiasm. However. Plebe Summer and a roommate who bore a striking resemblance to Willard quickly shocked htm back to reality. Plebe year was kind of bumpy, but it didn ' t go too badly for him once he mastered the third law of the Navy. Too bad that wasn ' t until mid-April. Youngster year began with a bang and a crash: namely the sounds of the mirror in his room breaking into a million pieces. It became a victim of Karl ' s frustration after another losing battle with Statics. Second class year found him rooming with Fred. The two of them were quite compatible, one of the reasons being that neither believed in uttering a syllable in the morning until after first period. During First class year, he teamed up with Fred and Spank for a while in the aeW-proclaimed " The Big. the Bad. and the Ugly Room. " Exactly who was wh om is still a subject of heated debate. You figure it out. Now that it ' s over. Karl wants to thank them and the rest of the bunch for the terrific friendships which are sure to last. He wishes the beat of success to everyone and has these parting words: Set your goals high and go for ' em. After all. nothing is beyond the reach of determination. Daniel G. Doster Dan Lafayette, New York Resource Management, NFO Dan arrived at the Academy condition and remained that way until September Whether his damage stemmed from some strange allergy or a chronic upstate New York party hangover still remains a mystery. He struggled through the rest of plebe year while sustaining only a few bad grades and a few brushes with the upperciass. Dan still can ' t figure out why ail those second class got bent out of shape when be showed them hia ability to use sign language. That bird must still be flying around the L. A. area. Youngster year brought Dan new wisdom and good grades. He attributed his great academic achievement to the philosophy " don ' t try to learn the . just take the gouge and run. " Dan gained his new name during this era by showing his prowess at scarfing Cheese Nips at night and suffering Cheese Nip hangovers in the morning. The big Cheese was born. Cheese had a tough start on second class year by amassing 40 days before it even began. Fortunately hia Actramid acquired Val and varsity lacrosse kept him out of trouble for the rest of the year. First class year Cheese joined several clubs including the backahaft Chiefs Club, the all day Sloth Club, and the Order of the Sacred Shroud. It ' s hard to beUeve that Dan baa done so much in his career at Navy and is still around to talk about it. Good luck, take care of yourself and may your P-3 be well stocked with frozen pizza. SEH Thomas M. Downing Spank Florence, New Jersey General Engineering, Navy Pilot Thomas came to USNA from Florence, New Jersey. His first squad leader tagged htm with the name " Spanky " and the name stuck. Spank aspired to play football at Navy. His dream was dealt a serious blow when he lost the weight equivalent of a subcompact automobile during plebe summer He spent his plebe year on the meat squad while his evenings were taken playing room b-baU with the firsties. He still contends that he had a plebe year though. Youngster year saw Spank drinking, dipping, fighting and eating his way to a rotund 230 and the nickname " Fatman " . On weekends that year he would do one of the things: stare people into fighting him at Dablgren, get steered from a fight by his roommates, or fight his roommates. Spank ' s last encounter with alcohol saw him break up a party early, dislocate a classmate ' s shoulder, harass a duty section, start a fight with an out of company youngster, and, finally, get knocked on his butt by Fred. That evening landed him an all expenses paid vacation at Bathesda. Md. Spank stopped drinking early second class year. He then quit smoking, dipping, swearing, gambling, and Burger King food in rapid succession. Tbelma was the happiest to see her good little boy return. Thomas battled all his internal difficulties and won (except against bis weakness for women). All who know hi m salute him for his bravery and his honesty. He will be a truly great navy pilot.

Youngster cruise (all 18 days) really enhanced Dave ' s professional development, especially being attacked by an older woman. Youngster year. Dave should have left the driving to someone else, since within three weeks be totaled his car and wrecked his roommates. Boom! He got to travel with the varsity and did some skating at N. D. That spring Dave decided to Ramble ( " But officer that car can ' t go SO mph " ) to Hood. Goucher, Catholic, and the Vous.

Horsey became a rat that fall, and got some official shoes for the College Park Express (the 20 min. Ramble). Dave got himself a new car for X-mas and blasted off to the Stray Cats. On 1st class cruise Horsey. Tweety. and Gumby went to the Zoo and saw a giant Cal. crab. Dave finally got his N-star. in the fall of 1st class year. Between ECA ' s of midnight tower jumping.

Karpick Pick Middletown, New Jersey Applied Science, Surface Line Greg came to the Naval Academy with only one thing in mind — driving boats. Hailing from a naval family, his father and a cousin both having graduated from USNA, his time here was just temporary active duty. Greg made it through Plebe year with not too mtmy grey hairs and selected Mechanical Engineering as a major. He soon found himself losing the battle between him and the Rickover Horror of the major breakers of youngster year. Statics, Strength of Materials. Material Science and Dynamics each in turn took their toll on Greg ' s grades. At this point, Greg shifted into high gear, leaned back and coasted into his remaining years by switching majors. During first class summer. Greg went on a Forex cruise to England to tread the seas with Her Majesty ' s boat jocks. Instead. Greg went about carousing and came away from his experiences with a girlfriend named Jane. All kidding aside, Greg has not left his mark on the Academy. Seriously though, under that silent, but dedicated veneer, dwelt a very understanding fellow and a good friend. The future has much in store for Greg, as a SWO officer and the possibility of tying the knot long distance- wise. Whatever happens Greg, my sincerest and beat wishes.

Her true personality became bidden to those who knew her as new and threatening challenges showed their faces. Youngster year saw a relaxation of sorts, and the no ice engineer struggled her way through shoals of Thermo. Dynes. The spring of youngster year, however, brought a new beginning and a twisted knee. Despite the disappearance of some roommates and the transparency of another. Heidi showed that the 3.0 goal could be achieved. Second Class summer brought her crashing into a carrier deck in an A -6 and sending ATP- IB messages in the middle of the night - waking everyone up in every YP CIC. Yet she survived again only to plunge headlong into Cables. Mat Sci. Reactor Physics and. yes. even a bout with the Rocket. Despite it all, Heidi managed to survive in a place where the numbers 3 and 27 were mixed up.

Hold on tight to the memories, John Paul GJK Clarence Scott Talamantes Tally Modesto, California Applied Science, Marine Air Scott spent most of his formative years in the small aggregarian tosvn of Turlock, in central California, where he continually had difCiculty distinguishing between cows and women At the young age of 19 years. Scott was foolish enough to walk in to see a Marine Corps recruiter Being a tyv ' cal USMC recruiter, he shanghied Scott to the East oast. In boot camp, the Corps removed the hayseeds from Scott ' s hair along with all of the surrounding hair. At that time the Corps told Scott he was too dumb to do anything in the serxice except talk to computers Scott ' s ineptitude at being a marine, enabled him to be selected for NAPS. And at Newport, he proved himself worthy of midshipmen stan- dards, and was appointed to the Naval Academy. At this point Scott made a decision to give up completely on " Tamale Hustlers " and go for RN ' s (Registered Nypho ' s). After his initial year of mandatory celibacy. Scott set out to conquer the world of women with his usual dogged determination, and met with his usual luck - bad Luckily Scott, in a drunken stupor, chanced upon an equally drunken female at " Frannies. " who eventually consented to meet him again. As it turned out she was an RN (Registered Nurse - oh! so closei. Since then, he has forced her to spend as much time as possible with him by the only means he could think of: an offer of marriage, a diamond, a car. and his paycheck for the next 100 years. Scott selected Marine Pilot because of his masochistic tendencies. He and Cheryl should be quite happy together. Eighteenth Company 411 ? S3I Kerry R.

However. Anne definitely was noticed! She generated fun times and laughs whenever she went to Franny O ' s. a party, or formations. Drill practices were some of the few times when Anne wasn ' t a barrel of laughs; perhaps she just didn ' t like being told repeatedly to correct a physically non- correctable right-shoulder-arms.

Winering WinnieBo Willingboro, New Jersey English, Intelligence Most people attend college to experience life, and perhaps to get an education. In Karen ' s case, she didn ' t realize that USNA was the wrong place to do the former, but she attempted the latter with semi-seriousness. Living at Hubbard Hall during her first two years and at Sampson during the last two. she avoided Bancroft with some success. Trusting in the belief that " it will get done eventually " , many a night ' s study began with a cribbage game. All-nighters before any technical exam (how many times did you fall asleep with the light on?) allowed her to escape work from Michelson and Chauvenet for most of the semester. But she must admit that the trips to France and Germany made up for a YP and a Tender out of Norfolk. After those wonderful cruises she knew she was not meant for Surface Line, but with arms too short to be an NFO. what was left? Hope it works out.

St. Helena. Paul came in to his own youngster year when he managed to combine a 3.4 QPR in Aero with time on the sailing team (Remember the Delaware Regatta?). But Paul wasn ' t content with just those achievements, so be started a second career as a tour guide for the Ho Chi Minb trail. There were no doubts where Paul was going when he would leave at 2300 dressed in cammies and a black watch cap followed by several of his friends. Perhaps it was a foreshadow of his airborne days to come. Paul ' s excursions onto the 2-4 ledge certainly foreshadowed bis career in aviation. Whether he was savoring a cigar on the roof under the stars or bombing his favorite mids with snowballs, or brasaoing hia initials onto the copper ledge, the open air and high altitudes beckoned Paul to adventure. On the other hand, that after-taps run to the ice cream store was one costly adventure. So much for two weeks of leave . . . Ouch! But don ' t forget; he who will not risk cannot win. During second and first class years, Paul worked for stars and stripes. As such, he pursued his second class duties as CAO with a vengeance for which he was rewarded (?) with the job as company adjutant. Paul decided early in his naval career that the very young girls of Annapolis should be blessed with his acquaintance, so he became a frequent patron of Disco Dahlgren. This served Paul well until he fell for a young lass from Notre Dame during his first class year. Service selection night saw Paul pick up an NFO billet and a severe hangover We all wish Paul the beat of luck in bis naval career and in life. P.S. Plebes. today ia really Hoo-ya ' s Birthday!

" Personally I thought it was out of hne when this was still going on the day before Parents Weekend- Bluecbild settled right down, though, to become one of the military maies of Canoe V. No guy ever had this place aired as well as he did. nor will anyone be able to completely fill his shoes in the future. Seriously, Bill ' s grades were never great, but then again he was a Mech E- with less hours logged studying, and more hours logged at Sammy ' s Bar than any Mid ever Inspections were cake for Bill I ' ve never seen a guy come back from P E-. shower, shave, rig a uniform, and then proceed to win color man in the platoon every single time - it ' s Riplev ' s Not only was Bill on a first name basis with the USNA janitorial force, but he also knew every bartender, waitress, and busboy in town In his spare time I frequently found Bill at Fran ' s buying rounds for everyone and then at the end of the evening producing a $7.50 bar tab. Bill has been both a baby brother and a pet to me I love to introduce hiw to wy dates because they all find him so cute and cuddly. Bill ' s ability to care for people will take him far. God blessed me when he brought you into my life Billy-Catch. Stuey Kurt Andrew Brandquist Kurt Annapolis, Maryland Operations Analysis, Surface Warfare 1 will now relate to you all the story of my roommate, if I would. One day our hero. Kurt, awoke to find that he had graduated from high school, and his blissful days spent " borrowing " champagne from the 0-Club and throwing nocturnal parties on the Parade Field werf over. Realizing that he hadn ' t given ( kj much thought to his future, be decided to look for a place to go to college. He started by looking out of his bedroom amdow, and being uncannily perceptive. Special K noticed that he lived on the very grounds of such an institution of higher learning. So on July 8. 1980. he walked across the street and became Midshipman Brandouiat, VSN. The first thing that stuck our hero about the Academy was the wide assortment of activities into which he could become involved There were so many, in fact, that he thought it would be unwise to spread himself too thin. So he decided not to do anything. Of course. I ' m not saying that good ol ' Kind-A Bad had no interest in " extracurricular activities " He ' d finished a book in high school, and planned on reading at least one more m college. And on any given day. one could always find Tinkles sampling a vintage Miller, while contemplating the social morality involved in making a choice between watching MASH or Happy Days. Not to mention the fact that Kool happened to be a irtuo80 tenor, singing a shower-rendition of " Rapper ' s Delight " for a certain first class who will go unnamed. (Hope you liked it. Vic ' ) And then, of course, there was Stephanie . Best of luck in the Real World of both of you! And Kurt, you ' re the best friend I ever had Some day they ' ll invent the words to express just how much our friendship means to me. Take care, buddy- JD Jeffrey Darryl Brown J. D. Baltimore, Maryland English, Navy Pilot Jeff didn ' t have to travel far to seek knowledge (as well as discipline, profession- alism, etc.) at the college level In fact he almost didn ' t have to leave the fine city of Baltimore, home of the world series cham- pions. This made things very convenient as his girlfriend. Lisa (soon-to-be-hride) was not just a phone call away, but a few miles away This situation seemed to help Jeff out in his first year as he made it through plebe year almost effortlessly The one problem Jeff did have. however, was a major knoan as " Aero " .After finding out this field of study required excessive labs, calculations with calculators, and staying up after 11:00. Jeff realized bis love for the English language was greater than he ever could have imagined. Yes. the English major was what suited him best (and his roommate on occasion). He would soon attend the majority of his classes in the dreaded Sampson Hall. Jeff as a midshipman was a very well-rounded individual and his efforts were not just limited to academic excellence No, not at all For example, as a youngster he was given several stripes one semester and given the duties of the Brigade Operations Officer. We were all glad to see be soon came down from the clouds Jeff also headed the Churchill Society as President, played guitar for " Sea Breeze " , making Ekidie Van Halen very envious, and fenced for Na y Jeff also displayed his love for skiing by spending numerous paychecks on ski attire He certainly received most votes for best dressed on the slopes. Jeff slowed dorni during his first class year, which seemed to be a change for the better. He set his priorities which were Lori. taping Greaseman and studying. Jeff chose Air for service selection So by dropping Aero, he never gave up his love for flight, just the theory behind it. Good luck in all you do. Jeff Catch : " Daniel P. Burns Dan-o Brooklyn, New York Applied Science, Surface Line Dan-o showed up at the Naval Academy caught in a well known stereotype: The Brooklyn sailor. You know, the big guy in all the war movies with the funny way of talking. It took us a while to realize that he was actually speaking English. It was just a different dialect knon-n as Brooklynese. Dan-o brought a big appetite with him and to make sure he would get enough to eat, he made sure he got not one. but two sponsors. He also has a loving Mom back home who realized that even his multiple sponsors would have a hard time keeping him fed. so she sends him King Neptune size chow packages. Dan-o ' s locker ia affectionately known as " The Deli " . Speaking of food, we won ' t forget those New York bagels and the late night hot dogs during 3 c finala. " More Beer " was Dan-o ' s advice to everyone. When the Navy issued Dan his undershirts they made a mistake and left the sleeves on. Dan-o always took charge when it came to planning a party. Hey " Big Guy " , can I let the word " party " pass without mentioning Florida. Spring Break, and Disney World? Hey, to keep Cooter awake you gotta stay awake. And how about 2 c summer when you took the guys to New York and showed them all the dives in town. Also remember: SNOOPY!, backgammon, the dry bar. the fire hydrant, your STBD list (a true surface liner), ice-teas and 7 7 ' a running with your weighta, and of course Goat Court during Army week. Dan-o was always the first to put up bis X-mas decorations although I always tried to make him wait until after Halloween. Finally, Dan was always professionally minded- He knew what we were here for and he knows where he ' s headed. Here ' s to a long and promising career Dan . . . Bartender, a round of drinks for the boys! G.S.N. Nineteenth Company 415 a Charles Ward Cox II Spaz Piedmont, California Political Science, Nuclear Submarines Chuck earned his unenviable nickname one day during Plebe Summer when he was ordered to shave. Upon return to a heated come-around, all were aghast by the spectacle of Chuck ' s gashed face and blood-soaked white works- In no way was this an isolated incident: During Plebe Year, it was rumored that the only reason " our hero " passed gymnastics was because the instructor also worked for the March of Dimes and could sympa thize vtith people like Spaz. in all fairness, though. Chuck has managed to validate the swim tests every year while satisfactorily completing the other physical requirements. As much as he ' s playfully teased, we that are close to Chuck can appreciate what he has done for us as individuals and for the class as a whole. He will do his best for anyone, whether it means getting good car loans as Treas urer for ' 84, or turn mg out q uality material as editor of the yearbook. On a personal level. Chuck always has time to help people. It is no coincidence that 19th company consistently does well on the PCR. Chuck ' s tutoring and knack to get " the gouge " has played a large role in that area. I can safely say that a lot of people are enriched for having known Chuck- If be does half as well at Georgetown as he ' s done at the Naval Academy, he won ' t have a thing to worry about — just as long as there are no agility tests at Nuke School. Curtis Craig Dukes Night Train Tampa, Florida PoliticaJ Science, Navy Pilot Curt came to the Naval Academy from Tampa, Florida with a golden t n and a free spirit. Plebe year Curt ran track and showed great promise until he gave up running to pursue his real am bition: courting young ladies — and voung they were! Even though Curt sat on team tables as a plebe. he still maintained a high level of spirit as exidenced by his actions one night when he poured his entire table s meal on himself in a rage of uncontrolled spirit. Youngster year was a banner year for Curt. His heart went out to the beautiful young lass Anisaa. One ECA that Curt founded. Radio Free Fifth Wing, firmly established Curt as a leader of men. Never the one to let his classmates down, Curt softened the difficulties of the day with his famous bedtime stories. Second class year brought a new change for Curt as he joined the boys in Cloud 19. Curt ' s accomplishments are many, but perhaps his greatest achievement is graduating with no grade lower than a B — and doing it while being in bed by 1100. This early rack policy coincided well with his roommate Chuck, and together they set the noble goal of being in bed before plebe taps. First class year Curt con tin ued seeing Anisaa as well as polishing his leadership skills as company Moke and Squad Daddy. Not one to let discrepancy slide (Hey Middle. It ' s a question of accountability) Curt assumed the awesome duties of dental officer which included nightly checks to insure that the plebes had flossed properly. Curt will be missed by all who know him here at USNA for his warm personality and easy going style. As a close and trusted friend, he will always share a warm part in the memories of our days here.

He got off to a running start until his plebe summer 0-Course . . Bill didn ' t realize that obstacles were made to be cleared and not smeared. About halfway through plebe year. Bill decided he ' d been a plebe long enough. Between listening to his radio and missing every other plebe quarters, we all weren ' t sure if he had been promoted. Youngster year we saw a new side of Bill . the man with barren chest and black bandana who terrorized the 4-4 shaft along v,ith his trusty companions — the Seal Team of 4-4. His manly image alone did not enable him to rise to the occasion at Army — don ' t worry Bill, it was probably only nerves. His failure at Army drove him to masochism. His hours of torture underneath his mattress could never prepare him for his Airborne days and Hooyah nights at Ft. Banning. Bill will never know how sweet that ice cream be paid so dearly for would be. Remember Bill, if you come to watch TV, watch, but don ' t get caught (GB U). Bill vowed never to let an Army go by without female success even at the expense of shattering the little gripper ' s feeble heart . . . take her lad. you need her more than 1 — told ya it was only nerves He always brought warmth and light into the Dark Ages even at the eipense of a little butane and a lot of foot (I swear it didn ' t hurt!).

Ellis Lantz Modesto, California Electrical Engineer, Submarines It turns out that Modesto, California is just as good at making Mids as it is Gallo wine. Lsmtz came from the Golden State with plans on becoming an NFO, but after surfacing in Guam after his youngster cruise, it became nothing but Subs for him. (appears to be that he wouldn ' t want to be a backseat -rider sifter all!) Lantz also had an insane desire to become a " Double E " - Fortunately he was able to turn his psychosis into a successful major He always said. " It ' s not my major, it ' s my hobby, " as he set about building this circuit or that. (Rumor has it that be has a Robot in the works!) Enough about academics. He also found some unique ways to blow off steam during our four years here at the boat driver ' s school. The bad news is that blowing off steam helped him accumulate three 5000 series frys. The good new-s is that none of them stuck. It was in such situations where he used to say. " You can ' t take life too seriously, you ' re not getting out of it alive anyway! " But don ' t let that fool you. he took this place seriously enough to become second set ' s 2nd regimental subcommander.

Armed nith a baseball glove and a box of animal crackers. Ski quickly adapted to the plebe summer regimen, from post taps parties with Fourth Class Greenley to the drawer that never seemed clean. It was during ac-year that Ski learned the real gouge about college life from Dan-o and the latest Brigade gossip from Chuck. Academically, Ski inspired us all ivith yearning for higher knowledge and the rate to rack. Sent off to Youngster Cruise in royal style.

If Dave were not fortunate enough to have lived close to the Academy, he would have left all the beautiful female population from 15 to 30 broken-hearted. But Dave is known for more than his magic with the women. Where do I begin to tell the story?

Although Dave has many things in common with these giants, there are things about him th at dwarf the greatest of men. Even though Dave would wait until the night before - or maybe even the period before - a big test to get ready (in order to maintain his 3.5. 90th in the class standing, the Burke scholarship winner form}, he would spend moat of his time helping everyone in the company solve a tough one. Dave would bend over backwards for a friend, and everyone was Dave ' s friend. There is nothing in life Dave Hall can ' t do. He came here a skinny kid and leaves with a Greek god-like physique. I will never forget the evenings at Wendy ' s, late night talks about Sandy and Kim Hi. 2. and 3. Sir Lawrence of Olivier. Mel knocking on the wall. Scott and Kim. I can never forget all the great times we spent inith your mom. We will never forget Mrs. Hall and the beautiful loving person she was.

Love, Tony Craig Alan Hamner Mel Niagara Falls, New York Management, Navy NFO I ' d like everyone to meet my r Mel Mel came to us that first s atudly figure of a man (Remember those good old days. Chief?). I knew we were meant for each other from the first time we liaited the local pubs. How vividly I remember those last second dashes through the " Yard. " And who can forget that first Army when Mel decided the hotel needed a sit -on -the -floor doorman. Mel ' s liking of the sweet nectar really became apparent, though, I c year when he organized some of the beat tailgaters ever seen by man. Of course, Mel had many other interests over the years. One of them, for example, was WOMEN! Mel loved to like women, especially the more " mature " of the apeciea. You know the expression " talk is cheap " , well . . . anyway, if you ever see him, ask him about " Bootsy! " As for Mel ' a lifeatyle in Mother " B " . he was the epitome of cool. From aleeping au naturale to coaching the Batt. Football team to a championahip, Mel was everyones multi ' talented leader (If only he would get his hair cut!). Even when it came to academics, Mel never panicked. I think this was due to his unique study habit of going to bed early and setting hia alarm for 3:00 am, 5:00 am, 6:00 am, and fmally 7:20 am so he could study while he was reated (That ' a alright buddy, I didn ' t need the sleep anyway!). Seriously though. Craig ia a very special person. He was always there when you needed him, and one helluva " best friend " .

On weekends Ron could be found at the Lawn ' s, who would soon adopt him for the duration. Ron returned for youngster year behind the wheel of hia little blue truck. " Midnight Madness " was an appropriate name. He stayed in ahape by training on pizza, beer, sunshine, and thoee last minute sprints for taps. His training peaked with the 30 second change at the gas station, (thank God for uniform races and new covera) Ron abused the term " road trip " whether he was driving, hopping, or hitchhik- ing . . . (Alabama?) Hia love for the beach took him from Green Beach to Ocean City where he threw in the towel and was picked up by Sweetie. Ron ' a love for Italian women led him to Italy for 1 C cruise where he continued the USNA tradition of going over the wall in Rome. With first claaa year came the struggle of EE. all-nighters, braces. La Machine, body by Soloflex. ' the phone ' , budgeting six figures for Lucky Bag and atill managing to atay broke.

He found Plebe Summer a breeze (being a NAPSterl and unselfishly helped the rest of " Donovan s Dnps " learn the ropes.

He wanted no commitments, for be was not gettmg married . at least not for a few years.

Mauro Big T ' Utica, New York Political Science, Navy Pilot Never let it be said that the Big T took a low profile in his years at the Academy From the beginning Tony stood out as something special. Leaving behind the security of his large family in Utica. N. V he immediately made a big splash. (His performances at plebe summer come arounds are now legendary - lucky are the few that got to witness them!) We learned to expect big things when Tony waa around, and we weren ' t disappointed In a first year full of football, magic marker fights, words of the day • oh, and an occasional plebe rate - Tony finally overcame plebe year. As an upperclass. nothing could atop him. Not football, not academics (well . . .) and certainly not girls. His unexplainable power over women waa envied by ail (and surpassed only by his roommate ' s). But at the center of his world was Sandy, the hometown sweetie with a stronghold on his heart. It just goes to show even the toughest guy has bis weakness. Through all the hard times, though. Tony has managed to come out on top. I don ' t know of anyone with so much zest for life. Affectionate end caring, be knows the meaning of the word " friend " . The memories of these 4 years • immature faces, ski adventures, a double date in the cadillac (bow ' bout those reclining seats!), too many late night talks, trips to Wendy ' s, some fantastic times in Utica and Beltaviile, a " mishap of an evening " , girl problems, worthless alarm clocks, a couple of intense fights, and 3 years in the craziest room at the Academy ■ don ' t even begin to tell the story. Suffice it to say that our friendship is the greatest thing I take away from here. Good luck always. Ton. Holy geez, P-Cola is definitely not ready for us! Love, Dave Stuart Russell Mc Arthur Suey East Norwalk, Connecticut Political Science, Navy Pilot With a name like McArthur, Stuart Russell waa destined to be a military man. So Suey found himself one weekend after graduating from high school on the desolate shores of Newport, RI where he awaited the rank of Seaman Recruit prior to reporting to NAPS. The civilian military transition was quite easy for Suey. as was the academic load. Here he met his life long Mends Drewy and Moohy. Entering USNA, Stu showed bis military might as he and bis classmates from NAPS made plebe summer look as if it were a piece of cake. He soon realized that academics weren ' t important and be then started to excel in bis military activities by attending Treebome and Baby Seal School This was not all Stu did on bis free time. During Plebe and Youngster year Suey invited many of his close acquaintances from New York and Boston down for the WE. In bis second class year I became Suey ' s personal answering service by answering the phone on a frequent basia. After setting up bis weekend rendezvous, Drewy, Suey. and Moohy would knock the wontona dead with their dancing tactics. Tbey were always burning up the floor. Slingshot entered the video about this time. And the boys trekked on down to Lauderdale for spring break. Suey received bis first lesson in first aid and the art of fine fashions (i.e. Bocca Ration). He also learned something about Lebanese while in Florida. In bis senior year Stu fmally started to show bis military expertise by becoming a platoon commander. He also dreamed up such lingo as Yarr Darr, Waldo, Catch, Latch and act. In all honesty Stu baa been a great roommate and one of my best friends. I wish bim the best of luck in the future and get that pin. Catch. DJD and the Bluchow Gregory S. Navin Greg Westport, Connecticut General Engineering, Surface Line Greg came to us from a small New England town called Westport. Greg ' s first mistake, as far as the class of ' 84 is concerned, was that while we grunted and sweated through the hottest Annapolis summer in SO years, he relaxed under the cool Connecticut sun with his windsurfer and bis girl Yes, you ' ll have to admit it now, Greg, you never had a Plebe Summer. Plebe year, for the second time, was a challenge rooming with Tony and Dave and trying to study at the same time, yet you still managed to get a 3.11. Youngster cruise to Italy on a submarine sure was fun. but at least you saw the light and decided surface line is mighty fine after all. Then came youngster year and all those major ' s courses came to life . They can ' t compare to second class year ' s load, though. The only light we could see at the end of the tunnel was a subway ' s headlight bearing down on us. How about all those all-nighters we went through ? I ' m still amazed at the amount of coffee the human bladder can hold. We did have some good times that year though. Going out to Mrs. Lively ' s after the company dining ■ it had to be one of the funniest. Are you still red? Somehow it all ended and we got our rings and cars. But that waan ' t good enough for you. Greg, you bad to go and get a wife, to boot. Well, we ' ll let you sUde this time — but that ' s only because Wendy ' s such a great girt Well roomie, thanks, thanks for being there and helping me see over all the crud they threw at us.

Purcell Smiley Pueblo, Colorado General Engineering, Naval Flight Officer Smiley came to us from Pee- Yeblo. CO. with a amiJe on his face and Navy Air in his heart. Hia high spirits and happy disposition earned him the name Smiley. His plebe summer found him laughing many a night away to Richard Pryor. (LFP) Visiting the ' ship in the yard ' was among bis plebe duties. His exceptional skill with model Airplane design demonatrated his early interest in aviation, because Smiley knew that only airplanes were better than women. His expert ability in swimming led to 4 years of validation and one night of backstroking home from Jaspers. Smiley and the other Musketeers spent their first Easter at the Lawns basking in the sun by day and raising hell by night Don ' t craw! too far into the woods, Smiley! Mike was soon turned on to some real music and found a bidden talent somewhere between his drum- sticks and bis abused desk lamp . . . but only he knows where. While studying under bis mentor, the Big Kid, Smiley learned that dipping in parades was not so mun after all. Wba t company Mesa Nigh t?? Mike was always a ladies man. Remember the missing girl in Florida, the girl in the Corvette, the Beak, the Gorilla, Little Orphan Annie and the one in the cradle. But then there were the midnight runs and marathon phone calls to the real woman in College Park. Mike owes the Ac Dean a favor for finding his car for him at the Mail. When be wasn ' t in the rack or on the phone, Mike was the most caring of frienda and we will long remember his ability to brighten even the darkest of days. Good lack in your queat for gold, Smiley.

After this grueling introduction he was generously rewarded with a fine youngster cruise on an AD out of Alameda. Tony quickly learned that be really wanted Navy Air. Youngster year brought fame and fortune as Tony won an N-star, the first for 84 in 19. As an upper class Tony blossomed into quite a ladies-man. Weekend frolics with Jammin ' Jenny.

Price Mr. Mellow Inkster, Michigan Physical Science, Civilian From day one, nobody has ever been able to guess what this native of Inkster. Michigan was going to do next. When he arrived after a vear on the beautiful sh ores of Narragansett Bay, Len was convinced that be was going to graduate with a degree in Aerospace Engineer- ing and become a Submariner. And if it hadn ' t been for academics he might have made it through Aero. But the effort to stay one jump ahead of the Axe Board forced Lenny to switch his major to Physical Science during Youngster year. Also, after a visit to NAS Pensacola during Protramid. be was convinced that he wanted nothing more than to be a Naval Flight Officer So. with the start of second class year, a new Lenn returned to the halls of 19tb Company. And in apprecia- tion for his positive leadership and profession- alism, the Class of ' 86 threw a party for him out in Goat Court on his birthday. It wasn ' t easy dodging those waterballoons while tied-up in a chair and wearing nothing but shaving cream and a smile — but Lenny pulled through in bis usual dramatic fashion- First Class cruise in San Diego left Len sold on Surface Warfare and Southern California. There was even a little time to be semi-sadistic up in Newport training NAPSters as he uttered those now famous words. " I ' m your worst nightmare — a jerk with authority. " In the fall, Lenny found out that he was not physically qualified to be commissioned, so he spent most of second semester preparing for bis new career as a professional musician!

How is it that the toes of your shoes get worn out so fast, John ? - certainly not from running those marathons! First semester senior year it was John Quint . . . Company Commander. Although academics were tougher than ever and time was short be found time for extracurricular activities from coast to coast. Pasadena, Portland.

He used to put off work until be could string 3 all-nighters in Bob was also strong in the area of women Third class year went to New Jersey and found his " angel " .

Plebe year he realized that baseball just wasn ' t for him and gave his talents to the intramural circuit Shoe stayed with the same sports all four years: basketball, football and soft ball. As captain of the co basketball team Shoe wasn f looking for the brigade championship, but rather for that one elusive victory each season And in football Shoe will forever hold the record for the most completions in a gams, unfortunately the passes were caught by the other team. But, on the serious side. Shoe is one who is a friend to all. Bob may have graduated in 1984 but he will always be remembered as a member of the class of 1983. Unfortunately.

How about csmies for Army Week roving patrol, assorted items rescued from the trash, and switching from Aero to General so your grades can drop? After all that ' s what GE is all about isn ' t it " One thing I never understood though is why you bought a nenspaper. Your life subscription to the Sealy News brought you stories like " Jones cat caught in tree " and " Smith dog dies " : and what else important ever happens in the world? I guess that ' a why you always bad such a stack of old newspapers lying around. The real clincher was service selection — Marine Corps? What will people say? " Look, out on the track, it ' s a snail, it ' s a tortoise, it ' s Mark rurming the mile again! " Maybe it ' ll be: " Faster than a speeding caterpillar, able to sit up on his own, it ' s the Grunt Runt! " Really Mark bow could any enlisted man take you seriously when you need platform shoes to be able to stare him in the navel ' The Corps does have its advantages though, when you come back here no one will mistake you for a mailman — maybe an elf at Christmas, but never a mailman. Anyway when are you going to get a haircut? It ' s been a fun four years, never a dull week, whether it ' s been burned pens and pencils, strange brews in my mug. or assorted liquids poured in my bed or on me, you ' ve kept me from being bored.

Vanderschoot Vandy Phoenix, Arizona Oceanography, Navy Air The Navy dragged Dave away from God ' s country kicking and screaming. The fight was worth it. though, for Dave quickly displayed his athletic abilities by challenging the W-course record and being high scorer in the plebe B-ball smoker. But basketball was not to be for Dave, with the exception of frequent and Mciously competitive nerf tourneys in the room. Instead. Vandy resigned himself to an all-star company sports status and the study of starfish and sand. Despite the latter discipline, the zoomies agreed to keep him for a semester in Colorado Springs. Now Air Force A s are relatively easy to come-by. you see. bo (he Schooter spent the majority of his time a safe distance from his books. There. Dave enjoyed jumping out of airplanes with nothing attached, diving with the scuba club, skiing, fishing, and terrorizing the bus drivers during Na y week. Plebe summer and first class year brought a plethora of stripes, a new truck, and a continuation of a nasty string of 4.0 ' s. Truly, Dave ' s faults are few and far between, yet we ' d be remiss not to mention a few. Most notable of course, are his dubious musical tastes ( " ladies and gentlemen. Miss Amy Grant " ) and temperance in manner and drink. Dave ' s amiable disposition, moral dedication, and cool hand will make him the best " high-tech Capt. Kirk " to ever blaze a path across the sky. More importantly though, it ' s made him the finest friend for whom any could ask. Godspeed Dave. Nineteenth Company 421 AfrHM M Scott D.

After a go at the J. V. team and a bout with the waterpoio fellows, however, Scott decided that swimming was for fiah. Yet bia affinity for water did not end there, as Schlong became quite the ocean engineering stud. For Scott, an " A " was 95 and above, although even the profs allowed more room for error. Despite his academic prowess, the scouting report on bis nerf basketball game illuminated an acute lack of dexterity in bis left band - one might even say an affliction • earning him the nickname " The Claw. " Second class year brought a company commander position and a spring break road trip to the surf, sand, and suds of sunny Ft Lauderdale. Soon afterwards, Scott sacrificed good gas mileage in return for the high performance of a 1980 diesel rabbit, in which he perfected his " lO-and-2 " death grip. After an exotic Forex cruise in Brazil, his attentions turned to more important matters; Joan and nuclear powered submarines. Both parties could hardly be more fortunate, and both will undoubtedly discover that Scott ' s imagination and commitment are rare quali- ties. We have. Matthew T. Wallace Matt Reston, Virginia Systems Engineering, Nuclear Surface Matt ' a pilgrimage toward higher education and a Naval career began in Reston, VA and ended an hour later at ' ' THE ACADEATY " . He quickly proved himself a man of many talents and a quick wit Among his talents was an affinity for poetry, which delighted bis plebe classmates, but did Utile for the first claas critics who were die-hard Pittsburgh fans. Despite being so short. Matt could cover a mile in 4:35. and could walk from his room to the bathroom on his bands. Youngster year found Matt experimenting with Aerospace engineering. After testing over 30 paper prototypes in T-court, his career was cut short by the OOD, and he settled for Systems Engineering instead. To prove his dedication to multiapeed blenders and dishwashers. Matt decided to forfeit all sleep for an entire year. All kidding aside Matt is a brilliant engineer with a promising future. After all, the world needs better blenders. There were 2.5 days a week when Matt was at bis best, and rarely could be found within the confines of Mother B. His adventurous spirit led him to Hawaii, Norway, and Europe. His taste in cars (even Chateau Silver) is superb, although his flavor for music is questionable (Who ' s King?). Throughout the past four years, Matt has been a valuable friend and a great roommate, be knows bow to enjoy himself and helps others to do the same.

Toper, Burper and Stu, came from the badlands of New Mexico where gunalinging, drinking, and listening to country music are a way of life. During Plebe Summer. Gary was known for bis obsession with Irish Pennants and his flawless knowledge of rates. In addition to being a perfect plebe — Gary exchanged alt of bis P.E. shirts — he was a perfect drinking companion . . . after any drinking occasion be remembered perfectly nothing. Not even a sellout crowd at Giants Stadium could rouse Gary from a drunken stupor. Several times we have bad to explain, " He ' s not heavy, he ' s my roommate. " Dragging Gary ' s body at the expense of belt buckle, shoes and trousers or bouncing bis unconscious bead off of door frames, dash- boards, etc. provided entertainment during Gary ' s moments of indulgence. Gary overin- dulged at times . . . nose shots of Guinness Stout, Harvey ' s more-than-Gary-could-keep- dowD special, and Chicken Mc Vomiting. During conscious moments, Gary entertained with endless one-liners. He was the power behind Mike Force with the ability to clear the wardroom with a single one-liner. And when Gary couldn ' t come up with crude comments, a thundering belch would do. Then there ' s bis outrageous accent . . . the woe-man in Dee-troit who he couldn ' t take to the tbee-ater because he didn ' t have his billfold. Gary outgrew bis gross taste in girls and found satisfying companions for his roommates. We ' ll never forget the duty car — the Olds 98 that could (well it almost got us to Lauderdale). Or that " off-duty cop " wardrobe of Gary ' s. Rooming with a future 5-striper for two years taught Gary to overlook friendship when it came to the Admin Conduct System . . . et tu Gary.

He quickly learned bow to skate out of plebe year, watches, duty, and weekends. Matt strives for perfection in everything he does - studies, sailing, striper billets, sleeping. As an aero major he does quite well; he averages 12 hours of sleep every day. Matt ' s sleeping habits resulted in fame. Last month, the American Medical Association did an article on him and his terminal Burnius rakcius (rack burns). He ' s buying his o»7i bedspread when he graduates so he ' ll always have a home away from home. The only time Matt isn ' t sleeping is when he ' s nitb the Peruvian. That ' s the only time he has better things to do than sleep, but sleeping runs a close second- I ' m sure one day he ' ll trade in the blue bedspread for his very own Muggy blanket. Everybody puts up with a lot from their roommates and Matt is no exception. His chances for being a pilot were ruined when his roommate hit him in the right eye with an icebali, causing him to lose vision in bis left eye. Matt loves to drag his ballrat roomie out into the real world once in a while - Dahigren. the Dockside, Catons iUe. the Azores. I ' ve enjoyed all of it. Thanks for everything.

Booth Booty North Tarrytown, New York Mathematics, Marine Corps When Dave decided to attend Canoe V. over nearby West Point, he doubtless had very little idea of the impression he ' d leave with the Brigade. His impact has most certainly been felt by all those who dared to step between him and the goal line in Company football. Not that he ' s an animal or anything — animals don ' t laugh while ripping someone ' s shoulder out: Dave does. Fortunately for 20, he left a much more lasting impression in other, more important ways. His friendly demeanor touched us all each day: the Booty never let his horrendous math courses interfere with his personal dealings. Dave is a model leader: not the type we read about in NL, but one with an amazing ability to deal with all people — a thinking individual, who can cope with any situation handed him. As a result of this, he has earned the respect and admiration of everyone who has had the pleasure of dealing with him. The plebes idolize him — at least those he didn ' t maul over Plebe Detail. Dave will always remember his one weekend away from Annapolis (in all 4 years), explaining to his parents that Dobbers really is a living entity, his maid, and the love he has for the Naval Academy. His only mistake was going Corps: He can ' t go Blue Gold with Mike (Sorry, Susan), and I won ' t be able to serve with him. I will sorely miss the finest person I probably will ever know.

As the twentieth company meteorologist, Tom holds the distinction of being the only Mid in history to drive more than 100 miles to watch the snow fall. Excellence and consideration come to mind when describing Tom. He came to the Naval Academy with an idealism that would not quit. If a good cause existed. Tom could always be found as its advocate. Never one to become irate at a well placed barb, his good humor was an example to all. lAs a Tampa Bay fan this was an absolute necessity.) Tom has a chemistry of friendship, pride and integrity mixed in a perfect solution of judgement and toleration which sets him above his peers. An intense individual, when Tom started a job it got finished. When it was done, it was done well. To most Mids he v-ill be remembered as a dedicated and considerate leader. To a lucky select few, he will always be a very special friend. DAB Thomas D.

It was at this point in time that TD crossed over to the 150 lb. football pipeline. Go Na y Club Army! After a relaxing cruise to Gitmo during the summer TD returned to tlie Academy to become the field general for 150 ' s. But wrestling was not out of his blood yet, be and Bruno successfully captured the tag team championship that year. How about those Churchill lectures on Friday nights Tom! Academics, youngster year? Well let ' s not talk about that- Second class year brought an enemy to Bruno and Gito and their way of life. A quick room change and a hard-core treatment with discipline problems soon found the tag-team champions towing the line! Yeah right! Second class year had its ups and downs for Tommie, another good ISO ' s season insatiable weekends and fieldball.

He really wasn ' t a Marine, be just wore the uniform for a while. After a short visit at NAPS, be left bis mark on plebe summer. He was a big help to his squadmates who didn ' t know what the bell was going on. One thing about Chuck is that be always tried to slide by with the minimum amount of work. Academics were definitely not a high priority, they weren ' t even a medium priority. Asa matter of fact, I don ' t even think he gave them a priority. He also avoided physical exertion like Don Juan avoids that thing called AIDS. Working out was not one of Chuck ' s me or endeavors. Coming back from Christ- mas plebe year he brought back with him a double chin and a double belly. One of the habits be had which always gave bun problems was bis smoking.

Heyward Slward Vienna, Virginia Applied Science, Navy Air Slward ' s chief worry when he arrived in Annapolis was academics. He thought the dictionary was a poem and he read only R T. Indeed the struggle was long and hard at first, but the academic excellence rubbed off of such roommates as TD and JB and Heyward was on bis feet in no time. He left the JV soccer team to start an upward trend, but it failed. Then something beautiful came into his life: SLNESS. Sandy and his new love were reborn in ' 82. To celebrate the event, he took off and skied in the Bavarian Alps with JJ and Rips. He ' ll always remember the trip because it was then that he learned the value of a dollar. Spring break brought more excitement as he contracted water-on -the-lung for backseat quais. The summer was emotional diversity. Hedgewood soared in PenSLcola, met the Big O and gagged in speech. 2nd class year looked to be an improvement while living under the influences ofJH SR.

But Bucks. Lou, Hannan Heyward survived with the help of Gliebe, Mr. Taylor and the beach. Then it was back to USunA for some revenge doing detail. Slward finished the summer by cruisin to LA to check out the Bronze God (Sweathill) and catch some real waves. By moving up to slsville with J Bonus, Tommie, Tom, the boys.

The dirt-cheap price of rum in Puerto Rico wade his Caribbean cruise a real dream, though it adversely affected his golf match with the Shore Patrol. They sent him to Airborne School to learn some discipline, but all he brought back from Georgia was an affinity for Southern Comfort and Holiday Inn hotel rooms. Tim told him to " get wet " : the only way he knew how was to become a scuba diver. Mike always pushed himself to the limit in sports, even if it meant playing while injured. After all. a broken ankle only takes a day or two to heal, right? How do you do it. Mike? " Sports through chemistry. " Mike did have one small problem. Moonlighting as a consulting philosopher apparently damaged his musical taste. He sometimes had trouble telling the difference between country music and the Beatles.

Finally, as a ' ster. he found himself. His personality fit right in with Math (you know, it works, but you can ' t prove its existence), and he discovered CREW. Surprising for a guy who hates water. He ' d decided on 3 c sub cruise that he didn ' t like Subs or targets; he ' d rather stay on the ground- Ed learned much as a ' ster. (No. you can ' t study in steerage after Taps!) Second Class Summer rolled around, and with it the bet with " Cutch " and Todd (I still don ' t believe it!) Second Class year, well there ' s only one word - Dace.

This is not to say Tom was a saint, his bashes made their mark (Philadelphia looks great from the edge of a 20-8tory building, huh " ). This Southern Man saved his best partying for the Jersey Shore: the beach, a steak, a six-pack, James Taylor and Bicardi (we did have a good time, didn ' t we ' ' ?) Tom ' s Ar. habits followed him to Annapolis as was evidenced by his job " wake-up man " for his roommates (Tim, Tommie, J. B.. it ' s time to git up). The amazing part of his early morning rises was the fact that he rarely got to sleep until the A.M. hours, only to awake facing strengths, dynes, thermo. etc - . . You know all those sadistical courses taught in that Engineerig building. Tom fell in love during 1 C summer to a beautiful ' 83 Cutlass and became the apple of every Southern Belle ' s eve. 1 C summer also brought Tom to San Diego and many adventures with his cohort. Bing Bing and Tom didn ' t just party, they helped the children and senior citizens of the Well, now the days are getting short. Tom will prove many people wrong with his ME. degree ad 4 yrs. of crew, but only those who didn ' t know him Pensacola will be just another challenge to face and I ' m placing all my money on Tom.

As a plebe, Kurt had to decide between validating a few semesters of classes or getting great grades. His choice: a 3.5. He kept this up until he met his favorite teacher. Tappy Jones — the pride of the chem department. Kurt tried to be Uke his other classmates, but like always, he wound up being different. He got (OH MY ' i a ' D ' in Organic. The rest of the students? An ' F ' . See how selfish he couid be? So he decided to continue the traditional youngster slide and become a swim major, I mean an oceanographer. Second class vear Kurt got back on track and started jamming with his sponsors Linda and Eddie. In a matter of a year lat.er he became the most feared ftrstie in Twentieth Company. He wielded more power in the realm of academics than the Supe at an Ac Board. The end result? itl in academics for 20th, first semester, senior Kurt went everywhere with bis portfolio of pictures of his sweetheart Karen. And God forgive the person who messed with Kurt ' s leave. He ' d gladly exchange ten room tours for an extra 6 hours of leave — even after be just had 21 days. He became the master of validating out of potential summerschool, hiding hair as long as Van Halen. never admitting he was a mid (even to Fwayne.

Good luck and may God and radiation always be Navy. Gregory Allan Shore Doughboy Hampton, South Carolina Operations Analysis, Supply Corps Greg made his way to USNA via the backwoods of South Carolina which provides some insight to his character. It didn ' t take Greg long to make himself comfortable as a midn. During the course of plebe year he managed to start several new habits such as smoking, drinking, and swearing. Youngster year, after trying various afternoon activities (YP ' s, sailing, etc.) Greg found his niche on ISO ' s and earned his no cover chit for life. Greg ' s acsdemic achievements were over- shadowed by his pursuit to live an easy life. Being the company wardroom rat for several years it was only appropriate that he became wardroom pres. The one aspect everyone (including COsI will remember first about Greg will be his room. Room standards simply didn ' t exist. In his natural habitat Greg could usually be found in the rack at any hour and must have set a record for classes missed over 4 years. First class year he modified his room with the purchase of a computer. This wasn ' t your normal PC, it allowed him to enjoy video games and OLD MASH at home. First class summer was a real shock to Greg on Marine Option and put his career plans in the air. Through a chain of events Greg found or rather his service selection found him the Supply Corps.

Leigh had 1 goal, and that was to be a Navy pilot, we even remember his flying lessons with Chuck during Plebe summer! Tragic was the day he had to settle for NFO. Another one of his dreams came to an end when the dean told him that with a 1.1 he should switch from Naval Arch to Phy Sci. A funny thing is bow nobody realized what a ladies-man he really was, like going to 5 consecutive dances with 5 different girls! Maybe because be didn ' t date any of them a second time?!

He lost his high school girlfriend spring leave and the PE tests made him realize what an uncoordinated spastic he really was. His trademark, a laser-beam study light (to keep bis eyes 20 20). kept the whole room awake. James returned 3 c year with a vision. He knew be could become a stud and began to work out hard. He pushed himself all the way to Ft. Benning where he got his jump wings. 2 c year was the Geek year. He took the only real major ■ Aero ■ and paid for it with many Mother B weekends. He bought his dream car (Celica GT) and guarded it with top security - bis own father couldn ' t drive it. James had a relapse of bis studliness and blanked out on his plebe wrestling one night during a rumble when our plebettes took him down for the count. During 1 c summer, plebe detail was dropped due to a very difficult FOREX to New Zealand: bar- in-the-wardroom, Kim, cocktail parties, Fiona, wet navy, and " Debbie does Dunedin.

After a disillusioning plebe summer that left him unprepared for the " POW " experience. Ray eagerly accepted the personal interest shown toward him by his ac year squad leaders. Plebe year was otherwise uneventful with the exception of learning how to write (viva la Revolution) and his induction into the Aqua Rock Society. After a terrifying excursion on the high seas in a Navy Yawl (or as he told his mother). Ray returned to youngster year with a new determination to " find his roots.

But something was missing from the wine, women, and song of life. fiay. never one to let a good deal stay gtnxl. left his present girl in search of a different breed. When he found her he thought the good times would never end and frankly neither did we. Also youngster year. Ray subscribed to the Major of the Year Club that would eventually take him from Poly Sci to Aero to General in a whirlwind of academic interests. Second class year brought stability to Ray ' s turbulent academy experience. He decided to live a little outside of the classroom thus he made his final major selection. The cultural crusade also came to an end with the advent of a girl who wasn ' t even Puerto Rican. As service Selection rolled around, Ray was steadfast in his decision. He was definitely going to choose something. What it was exactly depended on who he talked to moat recently. Ray fmally chose navy NFO and with that we wish him much luck and success in the future. 432 Twenty-First Company James R. Deal Doktor Deal Grand Prairie, Texas Genera!

Ambitions to graduate from USNA with a Mech. E. degree and a Navy Air billet pushed him through his first couple of years here. Although Jon was over 2700 miles from home, he carried with him a trait that was easily recognized by those who knew him - Jon was impeccably organized. We often kidded John that he stepped over the line in his efforts to keep track of his daily life in an exact and disciplined manner, but we couldn ' t help but admit that Jon " had his act together. " He sure did make efficient use of his index cards, calendars, filing systems, and even the computer to organize anything from class notes to financial transactions to PCR gouge. Jon was a hard worker in whatever he did. whether it be struggling over homework problems, running with company-mates over some nasty jogging trails, or even racking. Jon was a pretty sound sleeper, and it was often an enormous challenge to ensure that he was upright for morning quarters. Jon bad a friendly and outgoing personality that made him a favorite in the company, and bis bold leadership traits made him a natural company nder during the second semester of 1st Somewhere along the way Jon decided to join the Band of Brothers in the green uniform. Despite going Corps, we all still came to love Jon, and so did a cute gal from back home who will tie the knot with him in a June wedding. It ' s a sure thing that the Lord will continue to honor Jon as he heads out into the real world to exert a very profitable and positive influence on the lives that come into contact with his own.

During Plebe summer, he somehow managed to blend into the woodwork and. at the same time, put up nith his Latino roomie (what did you say your name was?). Plebe year was uneventful, except for choosing Ocean Engineering as his major (the mellowest major around$$$S). Youngster cruise, though the shortest cruise in VSNA history, couldn ' t persuade him to become one of the " elite " in the Silent Service as he began to lean towards Navy Air. Youngster year Jim came back with what would turn out to be an unreachable quest Stars! For three semesters he labored, only to just miss the mark each time. Bruised but not defeated, he realized that being the model midshipman just wasn ' t meant to be. Thus, he redirected bis energy toward a more attain- able, and invigorating, goal. Summing up as much charm and vulnerability as he could, he somehow managed to catch the attention of a Univ. of Maryland coed. Linda.

His next experience was during youngster year when he met Amv and was in love again But a month later he did it again and met Jeaneen. Four months later they were engaged and that led to joint checking accounts and bedroom furniture Pete ' s last experience with alcohol came the day after service selection He blew tubes in first period class ' What a class-ic ' Pete enjoyed the surface line phase of second class summer so much that it became his life long ambition.

Nick ' s plebe year was relatively uneventful except for one minor 5(XX) series offense. Youngster year, Nick soon began his normal routine of life at I ' SNA. Any late night at the hall Nick could be seen studying and sweating profusely. Nick met a certain " Naomi of the North " youngster year and it looked like he was going to be sharing his igloo with her after graduation. It all ended suddenly second class year, however, and Nick was never the same after that. Soon after I believe he decided to go Nuke. Nick never really desened the nickname kneepads because he went to three striper boards and struck out at all three even though the Batt O was a nuke. First class year was a complete change for Nick. He gave up his geeking and four consecutive 4.0s and began to lift weights so he could be like the grease-man He also became a party animal. Trinity College will never forget the night of Nick ' s 21at birthday. Good luck Ens. Nicky Kneepads and watch out for Japanese freighters. Twenty-First Company 437 c ?ss v?a Javier E. Roquebert Javi Panama City, Panama Systems Engineering, Guardia Nacional De Panama Javi came to USNA via the Panamanian connection and having been used to the slower lifestyles of Central America he had to learn to adjust to the fast paced life at USNA. He was always late for class. Javi ' s grasp of the English language was a little problem during plebe summer. Who can forget Javi being fried for not knowing the National Anthem! He knew bis but not ours! Or how about his attempt to save Mike from suffocating. Javi was never one to work hard at anything. He will be remembered for bis strenuous afternoon workouts. It must have been tough for him to get out of bed every day for formation. His favorite passion was to sit in bis room with a cigarette in one hand and a coke in the other He dreamed of this. Javi liked classes, t hey enabled him to catch up on his sleep! Since he was the only smoker among us, Javi was always switching roommates. Of course he always got along with his roommates like when he got fried a 4000 aeries offense over a quarter. For a man who by law can ' t marry until 1986, Javi sure has been flirtin with disaster. It all boils down to the BB theory. The ladies-man at all times, Javi sure knew how to love them and leave them. That is until he met Dawn! In a final glimpse of what it must have been like to live around Javi at USNA. I think it can accurately be defined in one word: sloth. Javi was the epitome of slothliness.

Being a native Bostonian Scott could always be identified by his use of the " proper english " (what accent?). Taking up rugby early in his academy career, Scott gave his all for Navy and shattered the record for the number of broken noses. On the academic side. Scott took up the " rigorous " Poly Sci program as his major. All Poly Sci did for him was make him cry about doing papers, at the last minute, and let him go to Georgetown twice a week to " research " . We all know or at least assume what be was researching ■ beer and women Scott ' s two favorite combinations. Mr. Fidelitey still as his hometown honey, but we all know how that goes. Scott has had to ftght off the women since be has been here. We know he has done everything in his power to resist, but. the Trinity girls, the " Porcelain Princess " and other such desirables are just too overpowering at times. Through these four vears Scott has been a friend to all. We did have to put up with his crying at times, but then again he was always the first one that we would cry to.

S.L.T. ■», Jerome Stephen Stefanko Jr. Jerry Allentown, Pennsylvania Chemistry, Nuclear Submarines Jerry came to Canoe U expecting to rip the academic facilities apart; with 155Q SAT ' s and valedictorian of his high school, what would you expect? Since he had no problems with academics or rates, his main goal was to stay out of trouble. He did this by becoming an out of company plebe. He had more weekends plebe year with the Glee Club than most of us had as firsties. Unfortunately, companies tend to forget you when you ' re out of sight. Therefore it wasn ' t until second class year that Jerry finally got those big stripes he was after, but not without forgetting bis own company at the interview. He later lost those stripes in a power play to a four striper, but during first class year he regained three and his " wife " didn ' t outrank him. Jerry met Marjorie on a romantic moonlight cruise on the Chesapeake Bay in an 80-foot cabin cruiser. Together they survived the cruise and the trials and tribulations of second class summer. Marjorie wasn ' t the first three striper that Jerry dated at the Naval Academy. It must be that affinity for intelligent women in uniform. Jerry has really changed at USNA. He arrived a short, meek, quiet little guy but when he leaves, he will be known as the beer drinking, m uscle bulging, womanizing man that he really is! (His alcoholic tolerances just amaze everyone.)

Amazingly, he still bad $100 a month phone bills, that should have been $50. except that be had to explain things twice. Doug ' s academic career was non-existent. He could frequently be seen roaming the balls at night, working on Co. business, of course. Even though Doug was an integral part of the navy ' s national caliber rugby team he was always getting abused by the GETO, producing the famous saying " you guys are too tough for me.

Steve is quite a runner. He ran Cross-Country and during plebe year he ran a 50-mile race. I shudder at the thought but Steve baa the right idea, for life is a marathon not a 100-yard dash. That is the way Steve looks at the personal relationship he has with Jesus Christ, his Lord and Savior Jesus loves Steve and Steve loves Jesus. Christianity is not a set of rules to live by, but the endurance of an everlasting relationship with Christ and that is what motivates Steve to do what he does.

Second class year, however, seemed to show him the light and be will now graduate a free man like the rest of ua (we think).

With the help of two crazy roomies (Sue and Di), she was able to pull it together during finals. Thus missing the ACBoard by 3 10 of a point. Second semester went a little better. Sug went from a .78 at 4 wks to a 2.5, while starting at 3B on the Varsity Softball Team. (Softball was a varsity sport back then.) On Youngster Y ' P Cruise we all found out why Sug would never go Surface. That year she became 22 ' s first 3 c flamer. An ' F ' on the Statics final convinced her to go from MECH E to HE. Known for her bluntness, Sug was once asked what she was allergic to. C asked her. She replied " Everything that ' s green and grows, sir. " Sug went from 3 c Flamer to 2 c Torch. Just ask anyone in ' 86 who gave chow calls near 2004. When S. W. departed, Sug got the pleasure of living with R. B. Room 2004 soon became known as the Icebox. Sug took her anger out on the books and hit a 2.79 at the semesters end. 1 C summer took Sug to France via LCC 20. Upon return to CONUS, she returned to USNA for her 3rd consecutive year with the people at NASP. She also spent a month teaching ' 87 how to fire a .46. Even though she rarely called the column rights on the right foot, everyone thought she would go Corps. She did too until a week before service selection when she was torn between Navy Crypto and USMC. Aa it turned out she decided to be one of the Few and Proud. Dianne A.

You ' d think that they didn ' t have anow in Hooeierland ' cos her favorite line was " Ha! It ' s snowing! " at 1:00 in the morning. She spent plebe and youngster year running from crew practices to D B performances. It took her two years to decide to stick to crew, and her heart ' s been at the boathouse ever since. After practice, she was always too tired or hungry to etudy. When it came to classes, she thought it was " better to be lost than confused. " She was lost moet of the time. Study hours were better spent operating the 2-0 Deli and Disco 2021. Thanks to Di, (and her uncle ' s xmas presents) 2-0 DeU soon branched-out into deUAitchen TV room. Needless to say, her favorite hobby was collecting electrical appliances. Her moet traumatic experience ever was when that one favorite appliance broke — her waterpik. (to the sheer delight of her roommates who could now sleep in the morning) As a firatie, Di ' s professionalism and leadership abilities began to shine, during plebe detail. Conversation at the table revolved around " bring me a form-2 and pass the A-1 aauce. " As crew captain. Di felt reapoaaible for the well-being of her team. She felt that the crew that parties together, rows together (that waa her excuse for all those Friday-night crew parties) Anyone who can cook in the room and watch a little TV on the side (without CC getting a clue) is destined to be an Admiral in the Supply Corps.

Since Sue was not the studious type, socializing was much easier for her. When she wasn ' t chasing Navy pilots (or NFO ' s). she was running around Georgetown, where the civilians chased her! (One poor soul even tried to convince her that he waa a mid in 22nd Co. - was he in for a surprise!). Only Sue and Monica could stay out until 7 am the next morning, then go for champagne brunch that afternoon! Or convince Capt. Dempsey to let them throw two Army parties at his house! Or give a champagne tailgater . with straws! But only Sue could mix her own drink in Franny ' s! Nothing was more precious to Sue than her liberty, except maybe food; she became the joint owner of the 2-0 deli and polished off any profits that could have been made! Sue ' s ffl priority here was running with the track team, and her excuse for eating massive amounts of carhos was that she needed them for her track meets. By the time she became Ail-American and captain of the team, we couldn ' t begin to count the number of varsity letters she earned.

But if by some reason he happened to be thinking of something else, or he didn ' t see you walk in the room, it wasn ' t too hard to guess where he was from. He was the only guy in the company who wore a cowboy bat during study hour and jeans and cowboy boots every weekend. And if you happened to meet him on the weekend it was even easier. He spent every Saturday waving a Longhorn ' s pennant and all day Sunday waving his Cowboy ' s flag.

(I know St. Louis is in Missouri, but don ' t tell Rich.) Plebe summer taught Rich how to keep from laughing at the absurd and brought ideas of serious pain to certain upperclass. Plebe year ended when Rich met H. Chop and Stu. (That was around October.) With Rich s selection of Chemistry as a major, thoughts of Tilling goat court with pink smoke emerged. Youngster year came and brought with it a tirade of complications. Rugby replaced football. Friday night jogs to the Seven River Inn supplemented the third wing bar, and LCDR Kehoe took a special interest in Haddad- So Rich drove in the yard a few too many times. But we all know that he shouldn ' t have stopped the car that fateful night in College Park when Petro got him arrested ( oops). Junior year came, and Rich left to become llth company ' s special envoy to 23rd company.

J- J- P- John Michael Daniel Jack Gibbstown, New Jersey Aerospace Engineering. Nuclear Power We could never figure out why a guy named Jack Daniels ' ever came to old Canoe U. Maybe it ' s because everyone from New Jersey comes here. After a year at Glaashoro State College and many all night campus parties how could he ever adjust to a disciplined atmosphere? The first things he said when he got here were; " Where ' s the Rathskeller? " . " Where ' s all the girls? " , and " Where ' s everyone running to? " . The only thing we did know was that he wanted to fly. If you asked him why he took aerospace engineering as his major he would have told you because he wants to go Air. So, Jack why did yo u go Nukes? No matter how many times he was told that he would never get any stripes if he parts his hair down the middle. Jack would not change. As a result, they made him company commander anyway. Maybe it was due to his company officer ' s help when he stated at Jack ' s striper board that " even though Mr. Daniel parts his hair in the middle I know he doesn ' t do dope. " First class year was a tough one for Jack. He was probably the only company com- mander restricting his last semester. During the week, if he wasn ' t at boxing practice, class, or at work as CC; he was out making up for his lost weekends. Jack lived by the motto that if he could sleep or party at least half the time that he would only be at the Academy half as long as everyone else. But. now that it ' s all over, how was it Jack? Yeah, we know the answer. IT ' S O.K. SIR!!!!! I Gerral K.

And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth: Then took the other, as just as fair. And having perhaps the better claim. Because it was grassy and wanted wear; Though as for that the passing there Had worn them really abt)ut the same. And both that morning equally lay In leaves no step had trodden black. Ob. I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads onto way. 1 doubted if I should ever come back. I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I — took the one leas traveled by. And that has made all the difference. ' Robert Frost Brian E.

Heaphy Dog New Milfordy Connecticut Mechanical Engineering, Marine Corps There ' s a race of men that don ' t fit in, A race that can ' t stand still; So they break the hearts of kith and kin. And they roam the world at will. They range the field and they rove the flood. And they climb the mountain ' s creet; Theirs is the curse of the gypsy blood, And they don ' t know how to rest And each forgets, as he strips and runs With a brilliant, fitful pace. It ' s the steady, quiet plodding Who win in the lifelong race. And each forgets that his youth has fled, Forgeta that his prime is past Till he stands one day, with a hope that ' s dead. In the glare of the truth at last Robert W. Service George H. Herlong Falls Church, Virginia Aerospace Engineering, Marine Air Behind every man now alive stand thirty ghosts, for that is the ratio by which the dead outnumber the living. Since the dawn of time roughly a hundred billion human beings have walked the planet earth. Now this is an interesting number, for by a curious coin- cidence there are approximately a hundred billion stars in our local universe, the Milky Way. So for every man who has ever lived, in this universe there shines a star. But every one of those stars is a sun, often far more brilliant and glorious than the small, nearby star we call the Sun. And many - perhaps most - of those alien suns have planets circling them. So almost certainly there is enough land in the sky to give every member of the human species, back to the first apeman, his own private, world-sized heaven • or bell. How many of those potential heavens and hells are now inhabited, and by what manner of creatures, we have no way of guessing; the very nearest is a million times farther away than Mars or Venus, those still remote goals of the next generation. But the barriers of distance are crumbling; one day we shall meet our equals, or our masters, among the stars. Men have been slow to face this prospect some still hope that it may never become a reality. Increasing numbers, however, are asking: " Why have such meetings not occurred already, since we ourselves are about to venture into apace? " Why not indeed? Here is one possible answer to that very reasonable question. But please remember: this is only a work of fiction. The truth, as always, will be far stranger.

J- ' s " rise and shine " and Har y ' s grunts told Bob just bow much work he still bad to do. It soon became apparent that the level of Bob ' s professional knowledge exceeded most anyone ' s here at U.S.N. A. More than one know-it-ail was destroyed as they tried to match Bob ' s knowledge in military hardware from the M-16 to the MIG-29. Another of Bob ' s favorite pastimes was ridding the countryside of its varmit population. In the tradition of the safari, the " Death Merchant " rarely returned without an interesting story or a smile As weekends became more plentiful. Bob spent various amounts of time at Frans. Dockside. Afterdeck Georgetown. Mary Wa- shington. College Park, Marymount and other haunts in the pursuit of the fairer sex and good beer. Both of which he maintained at a very high standard I might add.

Lippy always left you laughing His sense of bumur somehow managed to carry him through three years as a D Ber and on into first class year where he became a Trident Scholar and a 5-striper. First class year also taught him about cars and women, of which he went through two and six. respectively He finally settled on a " L ' ll Red Corvette " as bis means of motion, and an equitable time-sharing plan for all his admirers But Bruce seemed to date girls who did more mental damage to him than anything else Girls such as Ellen, Chris.

He was alwsys a bit miffed when we pronounced it Bell-view, but not as much as his SQD LDR. M ENS BUTCH, was when he was late to formation. Remember those famous words echoing throughout deck 3-4 ■ ' WHERE ' S MANLEY! " The usual reply was, " . . . w the head maam. " Still, all the firsties got a kick out of Tom s sense of humor, especially when he returned from Parent ' s W.E. looking like a victim of a vampire attack. Luckily the upperclass that Tom didn ' t like never found out that those little candies he gave out for Halloween were " doggy treats! " But, what do you expect from a guy whose hero was Surface Murphus. As plebe year progressed we said so long to Foxo. aka BPB and finaUy climbed Herndon so the Dant could go play tennis. Many will remember Tom because they were victims of the feared SB. IP. and TH culdowns. To tell the truth. Tom 13 one of the most fair, hard working and professional guys around. Tom, Moni. and Bri, Best Wishes in the future and Good Luck in the Fleet! CES III Michael M. McCutcheon Gator Bremen, Georgia Political Science, Navy Air (Pilot) Mike came to the boat school from two years in the fleet with two goals: to graduate and to go Navy Air He easily achieved both of these, and also earned a couple of varsity letters for 1501b. football before being sidelined by an ankle operation. Although few people enjoyed having a good time more than Gator, he was basically a serious guy who liked to surround himself with a few close friends, and who kept everyone else at a distance with his sarcastic wit. The end of plebe year found Gator combining his unique line of b.s. with Jeff Graham ' s as the two covered Annapolis in search of women. They were just getting their technique down when he met Diane. What a nice girl like her sees in a guy who lives for raunch parties and who wants to be a road warrior when he grows up. we ' ll never know — but three years later they ' re still together We wish you both the best of luck, and we ' ll see you in Pensacola this fall. John J. Pendola Poo -die Hillside, Illinois Mathematics, Nuclear Power It ' s 24 hours before the weekend and nothing to do. A road trip seems m order and over 4 years the whole east coast became victim to the Pood-Newm antics. ISU. OSU and LSU were but a few of the places with which Zeke. S. and a bottle of George ran wild. From the Schilthorn and Feldschlossen to ' 81 spring break and a fantastic voyage a new and unique story developed- John drank Old Style but never touched Bud as he wants many kids. Miller also became very satisfying on those long week nights in which John constantly tried to turn USNA into a full college experience. We can never forget Leon on those dreary mornings after or the " spot " where the USS Sims found it ' s only life in Poodle excelled to great heights as a runner and academically. He owes his inspiration to Terri where his true heart always lay. She made those road trips to the midwest really fun. and from now on sheet posters will remain in their rightful place after those weekend experiences. Proviso West and Wiz should be proud of John as he heads south to NPS. Times could not have been any better than they were here with the distance corps. After all who else could have sung the Mermaid song.Tbe Poods will always be a schemer. There is not an idea that has not passed through his bead and that is why he was so unique.
