On both of these occasions, we take a solemn oath of al- legiance. We pledge ourselves not to the Academy nor to the Navy, not to the flag, nor even to the leaders of our country. Rather, we swear to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

THATI WILL WELL AND FAITHFULLY DISCHA OF THE OFFICE ON WHICH I AM ABOU ' TEfl -ipC jC i: —5- r;- - ' .r -- ? i7 ' nr i,,, Because our lives are dedicated to the defense of the Constitution, this Bicentennial celebration is especially meaningful to the men and women of the United States Armed Forces. As midshipmen, we are quite aware of the history around us. Only a few blocks away from the Academy ' s gate lies the site where the groundwork for the Constututional Convention was laid. The first salute our Navy gave to the doc- ument it defends was the building of the frig- ate U.S.S. Constitution in 1794. This was one of the greatest ships ever built, and she could outsail, outmaneuver, and outfight any ship of her time. She earned the nickname " Old Iron- sides " when connonballs bounced off of her twenty-inch thick oaken hull. Her 2200 tons could plw through the waves at over 14 knots. The U.S.S. Constitution has proven to be as durable as her namesake, and both have weathered the storms of the last two hundred years remarkably. The ship is still a com- missioned ship in the United States Navy and is on permanent display in Boston. For this Bicentennial edition of the Lucky Bag, we have chosen to continue the Navy ' s tradition of using the U.S.S. Con- stitution as a means of rendering honors to the supreme law of our land. The design of the book ' s cover and section title pages emphasizes not only the bicentennial of the Constitution, but also the proud tradition of the Navy in defending the document and the way of life for which it stands. Today, no less than in 1794, we salute the Constitution — the symbol and embod- iment of the world ' s first government by, for, and of the people. This year, which the Class of 1987 has await- ed ever since the first " Eighty-Seven, Sir! " was yelled, has taken on an even deeper significance. In a world torn by strife and up- heaval, this two hundredth anniversary is truly some- thing to celebrate. By doing so, we honor the sacrifices that have been made in its preservation over the last two centuries, and we re- mind ourselves of our ob- ligation to pass on our free- dom and our heritage into the third century. There- fore, this yearbook is the Brigade ' s salute to the Con- stitution ' s Bicentennial. In many ways, the Bicentennial year we examine in this book is like many other years gone by at the Naval Academy, and like many more to come. June Week tra- ditions, daily routines, and official cere- monies differ little from those of the past and the future. But even in the similarities, there were differences; another plebe class arrived, but this class had computers in their rooms; another Blue Antjels perfor- mance, but this time in new planes; another Secretary of the Navy sworn in, but this one an alumnus. In this book we will ex- amine i)oth the similarities and the dif- ferences. 14 IBK7. The 833 pages that follow are an attempt to capture the memories of the first class year of the class of 1987. The images, both ver- bal and visual, which appear on these pages are intended to preserve the entire year in a single volume. This is a monumental task, and since each of the 4,500 members of the Brigade has different memories and different pri- orities, it is impossible for a yearbook to be completely pleasing to everyone. Every effort has been made by the staff to let the members of the Brigade determine the content of this book, for the memories belong to them, and the book should too. Therefore, since this is a memory book, and not a public relations pamphlet, we have attempted to por- tray the year as it was, and not as it perhaps should have been. It was an out- standing year, one of four " together by the Bay, " and not a year to be forgotten. Hopefully, this 1987 Lucky Bag will always help us remember. INSIDE THE This Crow ' s Nest aboard the U.S.S. Constitution was a place where sailors could go to get a broad overview. From this lofty vantage point, events onboard and around the ship could be clearly seen. In a similar fashion, this section of the Lucky Bag attempts to give a broad overview of " THE YEAR. " Beginning with 1986 Summer Cruises and Concluding with the commissioning of the Class of 1987, the next 126 pages will provide a view of life at the Naval Academy — from everyday routine to special events.

AT SEA There is nothing like a look at the real Navy after plebe year. New youngsters on their summer cruises got more than just a look, they got a full month of on-the-job experiences that they will remember for the rest of their lives. From carriers to YPs, from the Med to the Pacific, third classmen traveled all over the world in order to watch their probooks come alive and find out what life is all about outside of Mother B. The liberty calls and the new friends will never be forgotten, either. Some mids not only had fun on cruise but also managed to work and qualify on their ship. The highlight of cruise, though, was spotting the chapel dome for the first time after cruise and becoming a real youngster, ready for the new year. The Year: YoungitlerCruinr The Year: Youngster Cruise SECOND CLASS SUMMER What a Mimmer! Who could ever forget the events of Protramid and Actramid? This summer is a " sampler " of what the naval services have to offer. The eight -week pro- gram consists of flying in Pensacola, going out to sea on submarines and YPs. learning about Marine Corps life at The Basic School, and taking pro- fessional courses at the Academy. The beaches and bars of Pensacola (and the flight time, too) made it the favorite week of many midshipmen. Except of course for the grunts at heart who had the most fun attacking the ticks, tanks, obstacles and rope bridges of TBS. Despite some long classroom lectures on bright sunny days, second class summer proved that professional development and good times are not incompatible. The Year: Second ( ' la»i Summrr I The Year: Second Class Summer LjLd The Voar: Fimt C ' last Cruiae A FIRST CLASS EXPERIENCE One ' s final summer at the Naval Academy is a good opportunity to see what lies ahead. On their First Class cruises, midshipmen act as junior officers and gain valuable expe- rience. Onboard surface ships, most firsties are attached to junior officers as running mates and are assigned as assistant division officers. This allows them to become fa- miliar with both the operational and ad- ministrative duties of an officer ' s shipboard life. Many First Class use this summer as a chance to explore other warfare commu- nities as well. Submarine cruises, aviation cruises, and Marine Corps cruises are avail- able. Another type of cruise, which a few handpicked midshipmen are assigned, is the FOREX, or foreign exchange cruise. These midshipmen spend their cruise in the navies of our allies, and are assigned officer duties onboard foreign ships. Regardless of which of these options a First Class takes, he is certain to gain new insight into his career. S The Year: First Claaa Cruise WELCOME ABOARD ' 90 I-DAY After weeks of anticipation, Induction Day for the class of 1990 arrived. As they confidently reported to Halsey Fieldhouse. the plebes were piven haircuts, uniforms, and reams of paper ' ork, shown to their rooms, indoctrinated and inniKulated. As each new plebe raised his right hand and swore to " uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, " it was a proud moment for plebes, parents, and spectators. It was also a moment of uncertainty, as the plebes said farewell to their loved ones, who then watched them nervously disappear into Mother B to become Midshipmen. 24 Thp Y«-ar: I-Day IL iMlA. , The Year: 1-Day YOU WANT TO WHAT? RELAX?? The rigorous schedule of Plebe Summer offered almost no time for relaxation, either for the plebes or for the of- ficers and midshipmen on plebe detail. The long, hot days began with PEP, and ended with the singing of " Navy Blue and Gold. " and in between there was a little of everything: marching, come-arounds, lectures, sports, come-arounds, sailing, shooting, come-arounds . . . When Parents ' Weekend finally arrived, the plebes could be proud that they had survived. They knew, however, that soon the Brigade would return . . . Zt I lit Vfur: ' ; fur: I ' lebe Summer The Year: Plebe Summer 2 FOR 7 NIGHT . . . COMMITMENT It was a celebration. A celebration for two years of hard work. A celebration of making it as a class and as friends. But most of all. it was a celebration of commitment. The Class of 1988 had made its Naval service commitment com- plete. By attending the first day of class of second class year, midshipmen made one of the biggest decisions of their lives. They had decided to remain in the Navy. They had decided that they thought they did have what it takes to graduate and be the " best of the best. " So they celebrated. In a traditional party in Dahlgren Hall, the second class drank beer and soda out of their new pewter mugs and toasted the new commitment of the Class of ' 88. i£0 Th«- Year: Tu ' fi-for-Srvrn Xighl The Year: Two-for-Seven Night SHINING UP THE YARD Although it seems that there is always something in the Yard being torn up, rebuilt, or cleaned, this year ' s most noticable renovation was truly a major task. With amazing speed, the bricks of Stribling Walk disappeared, and were replaced with bright new red bricks. Along with other maintenance work on the buildings, monuments, and grounds, this improvement kept up the Yard ' s excellent appearance, which never ceases to draw praise from midshipmen and tourists alike. 30 Thp Yoar: Thr Yard The Year: The Yard O TRADITION CONTINUES FALL DRILL! " Ladies and Gentlemen, the Brigade of Midshipmen . . . " Who could forget those long afternoons on Worden Field? We put forth hours of sweat and effort to display our pride and precision to all those who dared to bear the heat and humidity to view us from the stands along Captain ' s Row. Drill may have been an uncomfortable addition to our afternoon routines, but to us and to those many who have gone before us, it truly is an excercise in dicipline and respect. We did, however, manage to squeeze in some of our s ense of humor. Remember the company that left their shoes in formation and marched off the field in their socks? Or how about the " wave " of covers that swept the entire Brigade during practice? Drill ' s not SO bad . . . } O Zt The Year: Company Drill m r I r AND THE WINNER IS. . . TALENT SHOW The Class of 1988 Talent Show was a big hit again this year. With Mahan Hall filled to its edges, the show went without a single flaw. We were presented with some extraordinar ' talent from all four classes: rock groups, dancers, folk singers, piano players and even an accordian player. It took a lot of guts to come out on stage with an ac- cordian. but a brave and talented plebe did just that. The jeers turned into applause and the accordian player walked off with a well deserved first place. Goes to show you that anything can happen at a talent show. 34 The Year: Talent Show The Year: Talent Show t i HIT o4 I IS iITT ' ob TheY.Br ' .bf.Si Spirit PLEBES SHOW THEIR SPIRIT! Plebe spirit. Nothing can beat it in King Hall: the lung-testing, the wild-mans, the cheers. But nothing tops the spirit they show at the football games. Who was not im- pressed by the spell-outs on the hill? Or the sheet poster hung in the Rotunda? It takes a lot of work to be a plebe and the job they have of bringing the Brigade ' s spirit up is not an easy one. The class of ' 90 did a good job this year. Tradition will no doubt pass the good luck and spirit down to ' 91. The Year: Plebe Spirit OO The Yc-ar: Channeii-ftf Command ' GOODBYE ' AND ' HELLO ' COMMAND CHANGE It was a difficult year for plebes to memorize their chain-of-command; it kept changing. The Brigade received a new Commandant, the Academy received a new Superintendent, and the Navy received a new Secretary and a new Chief of Naval Operations. The Class of 1987 saw its third Superintendent and its fourth Commandant. On August 19, 1986, shortly after the Brigade returned. Rear Admiral Ronald F. Marryott became the 52nd Superintendent, replacing Rear Admiral Charles R. Larson. In honor of the event, the Fourth Class Regiment put on a parade while the rest of the Brigade watched. During the ceremony, the outgoing superintendent received his third star. In January, Captain Howard W. Habermeyer took charge of the Brigade as the 72nd Commandant of Midshipmen, filling the shoes of Rear Admiral Stephen K. Chadwick. The Brigade heartily welcomes Ad- miral Marryott and Captain Habermeyer and wishes fair winds and following seas to Admirals Larson and Chadwick. The Year: Changes-of-Command GUESS WHAT?! RALLY! Our morale was bepnning to get low. We had to wear regulation P.E. gear in the Hall as well as a uniform to pep rallies. Where were the days when you saw everything from Rambo to Don Johnson at pep rallies? Then one day, when we were fast asleep after a long, hard day, a siren went off. Not just a fire alarm, but a spirit alarm. A voice came over the loud speaker, " Guess what. Navy?! It ' s a pep rally. Come one, come all to T-Court. Grab the nearest football player and don ' t worry about the reg P.E. gear! " It was a true transformation. Spirit and morale were on the rise and we actually began to study with one ear cocked up, waiting to hear the long wail of the Midnight Pep Rally Siren. 40 Thp Year; Prp Rallirn II ■■_ »jnBJL.»-.i!n ' «»:»i9-«n ri ' ' I p w p pwiiPCTgpiwp fy The Year: Pep Rallies 42 PHILO HEADS SPIRIT WITH A BANG!! Aside from the class of 1988 taking over Philo this year, perhaps her greatest improvement was the ad- dition of VLS, Vertical Launch System. Philo provided support for our team as well as defending our homeland by warding off visiting mascots. With a zoom and a bang, Philo showed off our pride, spirit and new advances high over our stadium. May she never be scrapp The Year: Philo Mc :iffin WUBA GANG " PRE-GAME FOLLY! Not since the Mr. Pep of a few years back, has the Brigade ex- perienced so much pre-game fun and spirit. This year the " Wuba Gang " had a good sound system, great per- formers, and skits that were funny. A lot of the humor was based on this years new regulations. It was nice to find out we could derive some fun from all the changes. The Year: Wuba Gang The Year; Halloween TRICK OR. . . TREAT? Halloween. What a blast! When else can you dress up, gross everybody out, and stuff your face with free candy all in one night? As usual, upperclass went trick-or- treating while plebes stayed home and dished out the goodies. Halloween was special this year. We had a great costume contest. (Weren ' t the wine coolers cute?) And we will never forget the stripper (no, not the striper) who danced on the officers ' table while a real one performed later in the eighth wing parking lot. The Year: Halloween A.M. FORMALS UGH! One of the biggest changes of the year was the return of Saturday morning Brigade-wide room formals. In order to make study hour more ef- fective, formals, lectures, and even ex- ams were scheduled between 0730 and 0930 on Saturday mornings. Second class could not leave for weekends un- til after 0930. First class had to make sure their rooms were clean before leaving on their weekends. Needless to say, this was not the most popular change of the year but we certainly all now have spotless vertical, horizontal, baseboard and brightwork surfaces! 46 The Year: Room Formal The Year: Room Formals 1 DAHLGREN DANCES On Siiluriiay nif lils ihroui hdui llie year. DahlKren Hall hecame center of action Cor Academy social life. The scene of formal hops. I ' lebe mixers, and the ring dance, the hall is perhaps best known as " Di.sco Dahlgren. " the site of frequent infamous informal dances. Women and men from nearby colleges and high schools came to these dances, sometimes by the bus- load. Despite the many nicknames and legends surrounding the Dahl- gren social scene, most midshipmen agree that it is a good place for a good time. fl 48 I he Yriir: DniirrN SE COND CLASS TOASTS NL303 Mess Night is truly a fun learning experience. Class evaluation reports consistently show mess night as the highlight of the course. The presence of so many high ranking of- ficers and the formality of the occa- sion make it interesting as well as in- formative for the second class who will soon be junior officers and perhaps in charge of a mess night of their own. It is definitely worth get- ting dressed-up for these special toasts. SPIRITUAL UPLIFT These photographs capture the power and the presence of the Naval Academy Chapel. The chapel, whether or not you choose to worship inside its beautiful walls, provides a center of attention to the yard. Used as a center of guidance and spiritual uplifting for many, it provides many more with navigational guidance in the bay. These unique pictures, taken from the top of the dome, present powerful views of the yard and An- napolis itself, showing us its great span that exists even if we, in our busy day, forget its presence. W X 52 ' ' hr Chaprl I) mt The Year: The Chapel Dome ANOTHER ROAD TRIP It was more than just another road trip when we took to the streets to see our football team fight on Saturdays. We had it down to a science of sort. Knowing exactly when to can the unapproved cheers. Knowing exactly when to keep all eyes in the boat. Knowing exactly which pretty girl would be our candy ' s target. Speaking of candy, wasn ' t this the year that saw the end of candy throwing? That is one tradition that will have to be reborn. Not just another road trip . . . march-on. _ e O V 4 M 54 Th.- V.iir: March-On The Year: March-On I Ob The Year: Army Week I WANNA BE A RECON. BEAT ARMY ! Army week. To the average person that may not sound like much. But to us it means so much. How could we ever forget all of the late night recons and revenge attacks? Nighttime in the Hall during Army week was not a place for sleeping at all. It was a place for shaving cream bombs and water weenies. It was a place for secret swims and missing name plates. Sleepers were nowhere to be found. The days did not lack excitement, either. Noon meal was a new adventure every day with hat day, tie day, and basically everyday being food fight day. Of course the news cameras were there to capture every lung, chest, throat, leg and stomach testing performed by the plebes. Unfortunately, this year ' s spirit didn ' t accomplish its goal of beating Army, but there ' s always next year. The Year: Army Week 58 The Year: Philadelphia DESPITE NEW CHANGES PHILL Y FUN For the first time in years, second and third class could not go to Philadelphia for Army weekend on Friday, [nstead, we had a ball in Dahlgren Hall. Plebes and academically " unsat " upperclass could not spend the night fin Philly at all. To top everything off, the Philadelphia I Center Hotel, the traditional Army-Navy party site, was closed. Despite all of these policy changes, we had fun in jPhilly. With " Beat Army! " on our minds, we waved spirit slags and cheered our way through a tough game and laugh- red as the temperature dropped and the grays went back on the other side. Parties survived without the Philly Center and we began to think about beating Army, next year. USNA AT TWILIGHT I ' hero is a lertaiii tinu ' ol day when il is hard not to notice the beauty of Annapolis and the Academy. The restful, quiet mo- ment between the exertion of sports, the bustle of evening meal, and the intensity of study hour. At twilight, it is easy to sit back, take a deep breath, and look around at the Yard, or out onto the Bay, or into town — wherever you look, things seem restful. It is easy to imagine that eve- rything is just as it was one hundred years ago. and to think of the achievements of those whose footsteps we follow. At twi- light, even plebes notice the beauty of the buildings which often look like prisons though the eyes of midshipmen. 60 Th - Ynir: Twilight The Year: Twilight HAVE A BALL . . . CHRISTMAS It was probably the most requested Plebe rate: " How many days until Christmas leave? " It is everybody ' s favorite leave. Christmas is the time to finally relax after all those finals. It is the time when all your family and friends get to unwrap all those presents that your big Christmas bonus bought them. And for the Plebes, it is the first time since they left home on 1-Day that many of them have been back. No doubt, Christmas was our favorite holiday. This year, as a replacement for Friday night in Philly, we had a Christmas Ball complete with a top band for our entertain- ment, John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band. After first having a nice dinner out in town and then catching the Nav ' basketball game, we all crammed into Dahlgren for the show. What a fabulous time. Christmas: it just can ' t be beat. The Year: Chrintman Ball The Year: Christmas Ball WOOP WEEKEND EXCHANGE During Second Class Year, each mid- shipman is the lucky winner of a round trip ticket to a luxurious resort on the Hudson River in New York. The Army weekend exhanjje program gives all midshipmen and cadets the opportunity to see how the " other half " lives. On five weekends through- out the year West Point sends down about 200 wo ops to see what Crabtowne weekends are like, and the same number of mids head up to get a taste of Army life. This program pro- motes understanding and cooperation between the services, and gives the midshipmen a fuller appeciation of the Naval Academy. 64 i-.ir: Army Kxchange The Year: Army Exchange SQUID RITUALS One of the most unique traditions in Banirol ' l Hall is the l)riik ritual. Reef I ' oints defines " hrick " as " a homely escort or date who should have stayed home. " A brick is iven to a mid to honor such a date. I ' lebes decide which upperclass is most deserving; of the dreaded award, indicative of poor judf ement in weekend exploits. The plehes roam the company searching for the unlucky recipient, chanting " Who gets the brick? " 6(. The Year: Traditions Do «- Year: AfoHneDtap oy U.S.M.C. ON DISPLAY Each year the Academy is invaded by tanks, infantrymen, helicopters, artillery pieces, and missile launchers. This year was no exception. The " in- vasion " is a friendly one, as the U.S. Marines set up their weapons and equipment throughout the yard. Aside from confusing the tourists ( " Why is there a tank there? I thought this was the Navy Academy? " ), the display provides an opportunity for midshipmen to get a good look at the equipment and to talk to the Marines that use it. The static display also becomes the topic of countless plebe " pro-reports. " These reports are much more in- teresting when they involve actually seeing a weapon instead of just reading about it in a book. M . The Year: Marine Display ALL PRESENT OR ACCOUNTED FOR. . NOON MEAL Noon meal in King Hall was more than just eating. It was a ritual, a teaching session, a chance to experiment with leadership skills. Of course, we all complained about the food, but even that was better than we admitted. To the Plebes, however, noon meal was not always an enjoyable time. Noon meal was the time to find out if they really " knew their stuff. " This consisted of the front page article and the sports article, the menus, the days (Mule, Yule, Spring, Ring, Fling), and the most important of all rates: the professional topic. Cheers and lung-testing still filled the hall, though. Not even a flamer could stop spirit. U Th, ,r: Noon Meal The Year: Noon Meal 12. Tho Vcar; Hark Agea DOOM AND GLOOM DARK AGES It is easy to see why the period between Christ- mas leave and Spring Break is known as the Dark Ages at the Naval Academy. Nobody knows who first yelled " Daa-a-a-a-rk A-a-a-a- ges! " out of a Bancroft Hall window, but it doesn ' t matter; the tradition continues. Short, grey, wet days creep by ever so slowly. The end of semester seems years away, and midshipmen use winter sports to vent the frustrations inherent in the season. The limestone mammoth we call home turns a few shades darker as it absorbs rain and snow. m- The Year: Dark Agec tEZMl I NO CLASSES SNOW! For a few days in January, the Academy looked more like Arctic out- post than an institute of higher education. Which was fitting, as there was no educating going on. Due to blizzards, a few days of classes were cancelled. Deep drifts kept instruc- tors and support staff from coming to work. Left to itself, the Brigade played snow football, ate off of paper plates, and caught up on sleep and homework. The restriction squad became the snow shovelling squad, and a hearty group of midshipmen volunteered to help the town of An- napolis dig itself out. The snowstorm and the winter fun brought some white days to the dark ages. The Y -«r: Winter The Year: Winter 76 Th. V ear: Hundrrd ' n Night PLEBES AGAIN 100 LEFT " Sir, the days are ... " Nowhere are people more concerned with the number of days until an event than we are in Bancroft Hall. That is why Hundred ' s Night is an especially big event. In the long road to graduation, the firsties are rounding the final curve and heading in to the home stretch. From here on, the days will be double digits. To celebrate, the firsties give up their insignia and their privileges and become plebes for the night. The plebes become tem- porary firsties and are in charge for the night. They get their long-awaited chance to yell, ask rates, carry on, and act like first class. The role-switching provides hilarious entertainment, and reminds the firsties that they will soon be at the bottom again. The Year: Hundred ' s Night CRAZY ABOUT HOOPS! Halsey Fieldhouse rocked with noise this year as it never has be- fore, as Navy Basketball atten- dance shattered all records. The team, led by senior superstar Dave Robinson, had another outstand- ing season. As a result, the sport became as popular as it has ever been at the Academy. Thousands of midshipmen. Annapolitans, and basketball fans from all over showed up at each home contest, and they were seldom disappoint- ed, as the team won almost every home game. The crowds were en- thusiastic, even rowdy at times. The bleachers behind the baseline became the domain of the infa- mous Zoo Gang, which intimidated visiting teams. The Brigade dem- onstrated lots of spontaneous spir- it, and had fun doing so.

It filled the hall and the air- waves of WRNV. The excitement of a shaved head, the excitement of future wings, the excitement of even the last one in line getting exactly what he wanted, the excitement of the light at the end of the tunnel . . .that ' s what service selection is all about.

The Spring goes as fast as the winter goes slowly. After spring break, when many midshipmen return tanned from Florida vacations or ski trips, there are only a couple of months of school left. All of a sudden, the days till graduation are numbered — and the number is getting lower. When the number gets to thirty-six. a new phe- nomenon begins. Tecumseh gets re- decorated each day by a different company, starting with the 36th Company. 84 Spring DayH The Year: Spring Days 86 ir; Savy Band MUSICAL SUPPORT The Naval Academy Band provides the Brigade with musical support during parades, pep-rallies, and atheletic events. Actually, we would be lost without the musical spirit and beat they provide. The Electric Brigade also comes from this group and provides outstanding top hits to many of our dances and formal balls. The Band also provides entertain- ment to the Annapolis community during its special concerts. We salute their extraordinary contributions to the Academy. 1 ■1 h i t. i: The Year: Navy Band 88 I h.- v.. ar: Annapolia MIDSHIPMEN IN CRABTOWN After visiting the other service acad- emies, many midshipmen have real- ized that one of Navy ' s best advan- tages is the proximity to a nice town. Just outside our gates hes one of the most scenic, historic, and friendly towns in America. Every midshipman has his own reason for liking Crab- town: many plebes take advantage of their limited liberty at the infamous BK Lounge, while upperclass are more likely to be found socializing by the City Dock or patronizing on of Annapolis ' finer entertainment estab- lishments. »? aBBii-3R8CiH ' ;iL i The Year: Annapolis mw NAVAL ACADEMY IN BLOOM Visitors and tourists are constantly comment iiij; on something which most midshipmen take for tjranted: the beauty of the Yard, especially in the Spring. The beds of flowers in Stribling walk are amazing — one day they could be full of bright purple flowers, and the next day all of a sud- den there are red and orange tulips. Few people even notice these sudden changes, but most people can ' t help but notice the fine appearance of the Yard in full bloom. 90 Th«- Yriir: Thr Yard in Spring The Year: The Yard in Spring v C ijZ Thf Y«-Hr: Hall Life LIFE WITHIN MOTHER B Someone who has never lived within Bancroft Hall, would probably find it difficult to understand many of the things that go on within the massive limestone walls. Since " Horseplay in Bancroft Hall " is listed in the reg- ulations as a conduct offense, mid- shipmen abstain from childish games and find other ways to let off steam and deal with the pressure of Navy life. In the process of meeting these challenges, strong bonds develop be- tween classmates, company-mates, and roommates. The Year: Hall Life mr 94 The Year: Sptcial Olympien !f SPECIAL KIDS ' OLYMPICS This year as every year, the Naval Academy hosted the area ' s Special Olympics competitions. The Special Olympics are an opportunity for men- tally and physically handicapped peo- ple of all ages to compete in a variety of events suited to their disabilities. Over a hundred midshipmen cheer- fully volunteered their time to assist as officials, coordinators, coaches, and huggers. Since participants, mid- shipmen, and others involved with the event, all shared, learned, and grew, this was one Olympics where there were no losers. The Year: Special Olympics THE INTERSERVICE EXCHANGE " Who are those ys in tlu- urey uniforms with the funny hats? " Not a tall paradf oes by with- out that question being asked in the viewing stands. The giiys in the grey uniforms are Cadets from the United States Military Academy. Each year, each of the four service academies sends a handful of second class cadets or midshipmen to each of the others to spend the fall semester as an exchange student. Aside from the fact that they stick out like sore thumbs at parades, the cadets from West Point. Colorado Springs, and New London blend in well with the Brigade of Midshipmen. The weeks before the football games with Air Force and Army can be ex- tremely interesting times for these exchange cadets. They become the subjects of numerous pranks. In return, they often try to express their own school spirit — but always end up having to clean up after themselves. (It ' s not hard to figure out who did it.) Before the Army-Navy game in Philadelphia, the exchange cadets are allowed to cross the field and sit with their own species. In return, the mids who have held hostage on the Hudson return to the Brigade for the day. 96 Thi- Yeiir: Inlrnien-ice Exchange The Year: Interservice Exchange i_ 98 The Year: Recreation HEALTHY PASTIMES The period between classes and eve- ing meal is reserved for intramural and varsity sports. For most midship- men , this time is the highlight of each day. Yet despite this emphasis on or- ganized sports, most mids spend even more time pursuing their own favorite forms of fitness and recreation. The majority lift weights and run, but many other sports are popular pas- times. Basketball, tennis, and ra- quetball are the most popular " pick- up " games. Even within company areas, some form of recreation is al- ways available — or inventable. The Year: Recreation «. o ip lUU Tb Yfar: Hall Life HOW TO HAVE FUN 101 If courses in fun were part of our cirriculum, most midshipmen would pass easily. The Academy teaches us to make the most of any situation, and consequentially mid- shipmen often find creative ways to have fun. No matter how badly things may be going, some things will be going less badly than others. By changing our frame of refer- ence, these things seem good. With a philosophy like that, even being on restriction has the potential for " fun. " Weekends always bring op- portunities for having fun — tail- gaters, dates, or road trips; but weeknights in some rooms can be just as fun. The Year: Room im INTERNATIONAL FUN FOR ALL The International Ball is a major event at the Academy each Spring. The Hall, sponsored by the foreign language clubs, is a spectacular production involving a fine dinner in King Hall, a formal dance in Smoke Hall, and a cabaret show in Steerage. The main attraction for most midship- men, however, is the guest list. The Ball is attended by hundreds of men and women from other countries. Many of them are sons and daughters of foreign diplomats stationed in Washington, D.C. The International Ball provides a fine opportunity to meet interesting people from far away places. WjLt The Year: hitrrriati The Year: International Ball DINING-IN STYLE Onv iif tin- Na v I radii ions with the greatest poti-nlial tor tun is the dining in. Many Conipanii-s. sports teams and extracirriciilar activities nrnanize their nwii din int;-ins throughout the year. The.se dinners are special occasions, and involve some of the finer points of etiquette, including " punishment " for those found in violation of the mess. A good dinner is appreciated by all, but only after Mr. Vice has proclaimed the meat " fit for hu- man consumption. " The only com- plaint ever heard about dining- ins is that they end to quickly, espe- cially when they occur on school nights. It is easy to see why this tradition has been around for so long. 10 ' -i Yrar: Dining-ln The Year: Dining-In u WF WjK) I he Year: SlvearitiK-ln ( nii-l " ' ermony A RENDERING OF HONOR SWEARING-IN On May 1, 1987, the Naval Academy was the site of the swearing-in ceremony for the new Secrectary of the Navy, The Honorable James H. Webb, Jr. At the ceremony, Secretary of Defense Caspar W. Wienberger swore in Sec- retary Webb as the 66th Secrestary of the Navy. The Brigade stood at attention in formation around the pe- rimeter of T-Court for the well-rehearsed ceremony. The ceremony was a homecoming of sorts, for Mr. Webb, who graduated from the Academy in 1968. The Brigade is proud to have one of its own in the Navy ' s top post. The Year: Swearing-in Ceremony X n lUc I h.- Vear: Afternoon ClasHea A TO ZZZ . . . PERIOD 5 The classes right after lunch are in- famous for the Z-syndrome. Midship- men have come up with hundreds of methods to fight off the urge to fall asleep, and just as many ways to sleep without getting caught. Professors know that it is dangerous to turn off the lights for a demonstration or a film, especially on days when " Z- burgers " are served for lunch. The Year: Afternoon Classes V FUN IN THE SPRING Springtime is a time when even ' one seeks their favorite form of recreation, whether that be golfing, tailgating. going to ball games, or just sitting out on the red beach. After the long dark ages. Spring ' s brighter, warmer days are a wel- come reminder that the academic year is soon drawing to its close. The balmy spring weather always seems to have the effect of making it next to impossible to concentrate an anything serious, especially studies. lit •ar: Spriniflime Fun The Year: Springtime Fun r FORRESTAL LECTURE Each year, the Brigade is treated to lectures by outstanding comnnmity leaders in a variety of fields, including government, the arts, literature, pol- itics, the militar ' . and science. These lectures are known as the Forrestal Lecture Series. This year ' s lectures included Mr. H. Ross Perot and Mr. Edwin Meese. Mr. Perot, a 1949 grad- uate of the Naval Academy, is one of the most successful businessmen in America. He is chairman of the board of Electronic Data Systems, which he founded 1962. and has ser ed on the board of directors of General Motors. Mr. Meese. a prominent figure in the Reagan administration, has held a number of top government jobs. When lecturing the Brigade, he was the Attorney General of the United States. Both of t hese display exem- plary patriotism and inspired the Bri- gade with their speeches. 112 The Year: Forrental l cturen 11 NO SWEAT . . . FINALS The final exams of secoiui seiiu ' ster are both dreaded and eat;erly antic- ipated. Althoujjh they may be ditficult and lonj;. they are made easier by the knowledge that just around the corner is June Week and another summer. For the class of 1987, the final exams were an even more momentous oc- casion, because they really were the final exams. As each first class put down his pen after his last exam, the realization came that four years of hard academic work were over.

It is a major event for families of midshipmen. Many make reserva- tions to rent a house or a hotel room months, or even years, in advance. For midshipmen, June Week is not all fun and games. Hundreds of loose ends must be tied up to finish up the year. There are uniforms to be put into into storage, seabags to be packed for cruises, weapons to be re- turned, rehearsals to attend, and countless other evolutions. It seems that hour after hour is wasted waiting in line — a waste that is especially hard since family and friends are pa- tiently waiting. Despite such frustra- tions, Commissioning Week always proves to be a wonderful time for eve- ryone involved, as detailed on the next 26 pages. The Year: Commissioning Week 117 AIN ' T NO MORE PLEBES! Scaling Herndon Monument is, af- ter graduation, perhaps the next most significant ceremony in a midship- man ' s Academy years. It is certainly the least dignified. There is nothing attractive about the sight of 1,000 men and women wrestHng against a granite obeHsk covered with a ton of lard. At least not from the outside — from within the greasy mass of bo- dies, it is one of the most attractive sights of one ' s life. It represents free- dom from the burden of being a plebe. The exhilaration and sense of accom- plishment which come from knowing that the toughest year is over. Up- perclass also had a vested interest in the speedy completion of the Plebe Recognition Ceremony, as their lib- erty did not begin until there were no more plebes. llo VhvYrmr: Herndon The Year: Hemdon ' «» i l lZk) The V.ar: 1- ' 1990 ' S FIRST ADMIRAL Despite adverse weather, a large crowd turned out to watch the class of 1990 attack Herndon Monument. Be- cause the Friday morning parade was cancelled, the scaling of Herndon marked the opening of Commission- ing Week ceremonies. After sloshing around in lard-coated chaos for a while, 1990 emerged with a strategy capitalizing on one of its unique as- sets. Byron Hopkins, a 6 ' 9 " basketball player, displayed his amazing reach. He pulled down the dixie cup hat, a symbol of Plebe year, and replaced it with a combination cover. Byron ' s classmates then carried him trium- phantly to the Superintendent, who awarded him with an Admiral ' s shoulderboard. Tradition claims that the mid who places the hat on the monument will be the class ' first ad- miral. If so, Hopkins will surely be the tallest Admiral ever! The Year: Herndon " ROMANCING THE STONE As Set ' ond Class looked forward to the big event, Plebes were required to answer the question, " How many days until my Ring Dance? " Some Second Class asked this question wondering how long they had to find a date; others were only anxious to wear their new rings. Aside from the ob- vious romance of the Ring Dance, it also had a deeper meaning for the Class of 1988. It marked the begin- ning of their year. It has been said that the only ranks worth having were Fleet Admiral and Midshipman First Class. As each Midshipman received his ring from his date, it was a sort of coronation. As " kings " of the Acad- emy for a year, the Class of 1988 could now begin reaping the benefits of three hard years. 1.

ADMIRAL ' S PARTY Althdugh the Superintendent ' s Buchanan House was the scene of countless receptions and din- ners throughout the year, noth- ing could compare with the Commissioning; Week Garden Parties. In two nights, one for each regiment, thousands of guest,s visited and were amazed by the large-scale hospitality and the beauty of the garden. The entire graduating Class of 1987 was invited to bring par- ents, relatives, and friends to the Admiral ' s house for a pleasant evening. It was a fine opportu- nity to meet the families of close friends. For many parents the highlight was a chance to meet Admiral and Mrs. Marryott. 1 O ' I h - Year: (innlrn I ' arty The Year: Garden Party s.

This year, there was an added attraction; the Blue Angels appeared for the first time at the Academy in their new F A-18 Hor- nets. The show was a special one for some of the pilots, too. LCDR Pat Walsh, a 1977 grad commented, " There ' s only one way to return to Bancroft Hall, that ' s in a Blue jet, upside down over the Severn River bridge at 400 knots, leaving a trail of smoke and noise behind you. " S 0 S t S RAIN ON OUR PARADE The weather had not been cooper- ating with Commissioning Week. Rain came and went unpredictably each day, threatening outdoor events. The Dedication Parade on Friday had been cancelled, and relatives and friends were hoping that they would get to see at least one parade. Karly Tuesday morning it was announced that the Color Parade was cancelled. After a few more changes, the parade eventual ' y went as scheduled. Thou- sands of wet, chilled spectators watched as Fourth Company became the new Color Company, based on points earned in academics, athletics, professional competitions, and other activities.

The realization that fjraduation is less than a day away has traditionally caused F ' irst Class Midshipmen to jump into the water in full dress uni- form after the Color Parade. The re- flecting pool was once the site of this ritual, but it is a garden now. The river is too dirty, and this year the fountain in front of Dahlgren had no wat«r in it. So most of the Class of ' 87 performed this ritual in the Lejeune pool. After realizing that they will never have to march again, the First Class took their joy to new heights — ten meters.

This unusual occurrence hardly seemed out of place for a class which had received a number of unique deals throughout its four years at the Academy. Although fewer rel- atives and friends could attend the indoor graduation, the ceremony it- self was no less impressive. The Hon- orable George Bush, Vice President of the United States gave the graduation address, after an introduction by the Honorable James H. Webb, Jr., Sec- retary of the Navy, and remarks by the Superintendent, Rear Admired Ronald F. Marryott. The Class of ' 87 eagerly listened to the speeches as the moment they had been working to- ward for four years grew close. ,« S i The Year: Graduation 1 I 138 The Year: Graduation DISTINCTION TOP 104 Midshipmen graduating with distinc- tion were the first to receive their diplomas. These 104 men and women were in the top ten percent of the class according to the order of merit, determined by academic, profession- al, conduct, and physical education standards. They were presented their diplomas by Vice President Bush. Christopher Scott Calhoun graduated first in the class of 1987. For a com- plete list of those members of the class graduating with distinction, see the Honors section beginning on page 768. The Year: Graduation i COMMISSIONING CEREMONY As each midshipniaii received his di- ploma and was congratuhited by the Vice President, a variety of feehngs was evident. Pride in accomplish- ment, relief of emancipation from Mother B. sadness for leaving behind good friends and good times, antic- ipation of what lay ahead — all these showed in the faces of the graduates. Then the Class of 1987 took its Oath of Office as officers in the naval ser- vice. The new Second Lieutenants in the Marine Corps were administered the Oath by General CD. Dean, and the new Ensigns were sworn in by the Chief of Naval Operation, Admiral C.A.H. Trost. After pledging to sup- port and defend the Constitution, singing " Blue and Gold, " and giving three cheers " for those we leave be- hind, " the newly commissioned offi- cers finally threw their midshipmen ' s cover into the air. 140 The Year: (Jr mi ' ?

But first they need- ed to don the insignia of their new rank. Once outfitted in their new covers and shoulderboards, and insignia, there was still one final Academy ritual to per- form: Tradition says that the newly commissioned officer must give a silver dollar to the first person saluting him. While graduation marked the departure of the Class of 1987 and the end of another year at the Academy, it was, more importantly, a beginning of 1,045 officers ' careers. 142 The Year: Gr The Year: Graduation ion X . i 1 The captain ' s quarters emphasises two important points about leadership. The relative luxury and spaciousness demonstrate the old adage« " Rank hath its Privilege; " however, their proximity to the ship ' wheel and the gun deck made for a less than comfortable ride. This shows that " Rank hath its Responsibilities. " These two principles were clearly demonstrated by the leaders in our chain-of- command, the Academy staff, and the faculty. This section is dedicated to them. f B3iB «Li_l_ S - % V ' V 1 " ' ■ " ' V ll COMMAND ' nt of the United States 146 y of Defense 147 -retaries of the Navy 148 ' lairman.

Halyards, sheets, downhauls, shrouds, and others — all work together smoothly to sail the ship. Just as independent and unique lines combine to make the rigging, four and a half thousand men and women, each of them singular individuals, join together into the Brigade of Midshipmen, sailing forth with unity of spirit and clarity of purpose.

Third claas year Tonyman decided he needed a career change and considered going back t ) New Jersey to become a waiter. He changed his mind and decided to stay at the Naval Academy concentrating m track electronic football with spuds. Second class year brought a four man r(K)m. a new night spot- The Vnus, and a new sport pole vaulting. First class year began with a Marine option cruise in Hawaii and continued with Plebe Summer detail, during which Tony dated and later was engaged to Libby. Ac year had Tony working hard for grades and higher class rank for a shot at NFf) for service selec tion. He sweated it out. but ended up get ting his NFO slot flood luck and see you around, .lagman RKK JYM Michael Patrick Gaffney Whether he realizes it or not, Mike is eter- nally grateful for his time on the deckplates. He has a problem, you see; he tends ti want to do things his own way. Fortunately Ihe problem was diagnosed in time. People stuck their necks out for him and he quite frankly learned that change and free time were not things to be ex perimented with; given so little margin for error. Alas, Mike eventually came " back into the fold. " He lived out his days in stereotypical mid fashion. He rowed on the national level, was the boy in first Ratt, won a Rhodes Scholarship and wore Pro Kedfl on liberty. All in alt his story is the triumph of creativity muzzled just in the nick of time. That ' s Mike, thanks U Frank Rtichanan and a ten cent candy bar IWC Evaristo Gonzalez The Tubin " Cuban came to 1st Company after a banner plebe year in Twelfth. That was all to change when he selected Carl as a roommate and was maxed a 5K for being too spirited. Next he worked on his own special brand of 6K for classmates losing their laundry. " Ever " missed the jwrfor- mance l oarda, but not constant verbal abuse favoring the victims. Ever was a fashion King. He searched through GQ and took mites during Miami Vice. He eliminated his sideburns (wh ich caught him lots of attention), and tried to turn in- to a blond (which left him an orange). Truthfully.the girls liked his clothes, but his roommates never caught onto wearing XL shirta. Ever was the only mid to con- tinue standing SOW watch after plebe year.

Youngster year was a challenge, oviding both an NCAA Basketball bid |d a Computer Science Ac Board bid. ;rd rolled with the punches and landed r his feet. Asleep — but on his feet. He ■mmered his way through second class ' ■ir, breezing through EE. He did so well, volunteere d for more. He earned a the summer detail slot and did so well iy sent him home after only a week. It s then while painting basketball courts it he learned his true calling, NavAir. 1st notable about the Bird was his pa- nee in dealing with psychos. Good luck •nin ' and burnin ' . JCK. Geoffrey Garret deBeauelair A master of the 20 minute nap, Debo became the ideal study animal. United with his roommates halfway through youngster year, he quickly showed his true colors by studying 70 hours in one week during finals -to no avail. Possessed with a high motivational factor, Geoff pursued and captured all that he went after; from a nuclear power billet as a first class to an unusual entrance to Hammerjacks as a third class. Academics were not Debo ' s on- ly strong suit. He excelled at honor boards as well-2 for 2, and out of season tactics — birthday presents. Debo was well cared for by his care packages from home. (Food is bad here, but a package a week?) Though he is reserved and quiet, Debo can always be counted on for a surprise. Good luck Debo ' .DLT TBW. John Mark Dimento A bright spot of anyone ' s Academy ex- perience is finding a great roommate with whom to share the struggles and triumphs of Bancroft Hall. John was such a room- mate for me. His New England sense of humor and quick wit kept me always on my guard and helped pass the time a little more pleasantly. John brought a keen desire to excel to all his endeavors. Playing on the soccer field or working in the EE lab, he never settled for less than his best. He excelled on " cruise " also, travelling from southern California to London, Spain, and France. John will make many a nuclear cruiser a better place to be, but on- ly after he rampages through San Diego and Orlando for a few years. Good luck in all you do! PAB. Jeffrey Ray Evers Jeff came by way of big citv life from Hud- son, Iowa. Ever .nnce plebe year he has been Mr. Squared-away. He beefed up while at the Academy and was known for his ability to disguise himself as a pencil by putting a number 2 on his neck. Smarter, there are only a few more, good natured, even less so, a stud with women; well, how about the population in China? More. Jeff probably took out more girls than either of his roommates. Of course, he only went out with them once. Repeat performances seemed rare. Seriously. Jeff would make a perfect husband for some lucky babe; he has a big . . . salary and already owns a family car. We hope the family car lasts longer than the reliable {constant tow) Fiesta. Jeff, you have class in Stribling Hall, (BIG, G!) can ' t fool you. EG LGH. John Kenton Green m could hav gone to Air Force, which :jld have been a lot closer to his I ' netown of Spokane. Washington, but i|)0. To this day, he ' s not sure why he (jise Annapolis, although it doesn ' t really I ' tter because he ' s still going to be a jet jjkey. John majored in Systems l?ineering, but I personally witnessed I ' l scoff at what most people would have tught was a highly challenging major. I ' spent the best part of his Supe ' s list I rty getting away from the Academy to r,ix, and he also devoted an enormous Ejount of his spare time to his own s ritual development and that of other (: ristians. I have thoroughly enjoyed ' .j ' ln ' s friendship and I could not have had 6 ;tter roommate. I wish him all the luck i| he world. JPK. Paul Edward Gross Paul found his way to the Naval Academy via Old Dominion U. His plebe year was spent in 32nd Company, where he was known as " Physical Excellence Gross. " After third class cruise, Paul ended up in Fun One and was known from then on as " Grub " . Grub spent most of his third class year sleeping or sailing and never let studies get in the way. During second class year, Paul decided to change his image and become a jock. He lettered in sailing, box- ing, and ran marathons for fun. (??) First class year was one disappointment after another for Paul, but despite not becom- ing a seal, losing his wuba, breaking his thumb nose, and getting fried at Army, Paul faired well. Always remember the youngster ski trip and the drunken times at the Dubliner, Keep breaking the girls ' hearts and don ' t go out with girls with 1- 800 numbers. AJF.

Maybe his toes? ENP. Larry Gene Hushour Arriving at USNA with high hopes of good grades and gold wings (well one out of two ain ' t bad, Spruance class), Larry struggled through plebedom. After being harshly dismissed by his hometown girl, and after he dismissed the future Miss Universe by calling her Fishlips, he took a beeline path to Dahlgren where he met his little honey, thus ending his affiliation with the Torah; however, he was never too skimpy to give away some good leghair to a Goucher punkrock. Firsty year saw Hushdog strug- gle (yeah, right!) through many a forma- tion and football game (How ' s that Meade course?) as Company Ops. Larry was the ideal training officer ( " You mean you have to go on a summer cruise? " ). Good luck at Top Gun and watch out for those leaches on the neck. Ever and Jeff.

Fresh from high school, he was still young and naive. After learning the pros and cons of alcohol third class year, String became a full- fledged member of the Black N Club. At the beginning of second class year he changed majors which gave him extra time to petrify plebes and rack through class. String also mastered the art of studying — the less he did, the higher his grades. He was one of the few to make it four years with the same babe, Michelle. First class year String concentrated on graduation, marriage, and helping his plebe sister skate through. We ' ll miss String as he joins the elite corps, the Minesweeping Community. Go get ' em " TOP SWEEP " . they ' re getting a winner. JTM NJC. ; Thomas Bradley Welch Teh arrived at USNA without a sense of d,ction, and proceeded to make it four ft years without developing one.

Dave John White Rooming with Iceman, Bubbles, and Mr. Sleep proved to be a learning experience for the small-town wonderboy from Buellton, California. He even had to clean his part of the room.

Finally out of the red, Dave hasn ' t realized that for nuke power you need to pack a brain as well as a checkbook. As always, I ' m sure he ' ll find a way to sneak through. I ' ve done all I can to educate you, naive one. Good luck, good times, good riddance, and good day. " Take care. JDM. Timothy James White Tim came to Navy and stepped into a world 180 degrees out of phase from his Hfestyle back in Spring, Texas. He " roll- ed " thru plebe year in 15th Company, Opie, and a secret admirer. Masochism drove him to choose Mechanical Engineering as a major, but he found release in Bermuda for third class cruise. He took high hopes to First Company where he joined the prestigious " fearsome foursome " of Texas boys. Second class year found an interesting mix of ZZ TOP, Pink Floyd, and Marty Robbins emanating from the room. First class year brought Company Sub-Commander, two new roomies that attempted to whip him into shape: the 1st proud and bulky SWO on the Missouri,BB-63, out of San Fran.

He did well with the ladies, including numerous " friends " and one admiral ' s daughter (talking, at 0400 ' ' ' !) Unfortunately, the academy wants more than a casanova so Wayne vowed to finish with a M.O as an aero major. We heard this a lot until Jan 87. His in- coherency. noticed in the wee hours, will not prevent him from succeeding (I stood that watch already!) He did well and will continue to do so as a " nuke. " Fair weather and following seas from a very grateful roomie. God bless. Jimbo. Spence. Brillo. P.S. The Appalachians are hills!! Paul Andrew Walker Here was a southern gentleman in ever ' respect. PAW was always ready to do anyone a favor, whether pacing the mile or driving to the Tapt-ain ' s in a raging bliz- i zard (and making it back alive). I ' m not sure if the latter was a favor or a miracle, seeing ' how PAW ' s truck hasn ' t been in one solid, uninjured piece since the day he bought it. He underwent some major tran- sitions at USNA; it never ceases to amaze me how a person who visited with Mowgli in New York youngster year ended up hv- ing with Roger first class year. Perhaps it was due to the workings of the important relationship he entered into his first class year. Moat of my memories of PAW, however, come through mist of pain, vet satisfaction jogging along the seawall at fJT ' 0600. struggling to stay afloat thru 400 ■ " " meters of l. Jeune. and l 7)ing 30 page papers thru the nighl. Through all this PAW was there, like the brother I never had, I.i ' lSis. 218 Tho Itriftadc: Second Company Joe Manuel Sanchez Joe paraded down Main Street the night before I-day in cowboy boots and a Texan 10-gallon hat. He hasn ' t changed much in the four years that he ' s been here. Joe is known for his love of music, Spanish music, that is. One would always know when Joe was driving his Z-28 camaro from the blast of Mariachis emanating from his car. Growing up in Spain gave Joe a different perspective on life, and plebe year was only a small hurdle for this street-wise kid. As a plebe Joe was famous for his 15 second Spanish chow calls, and sleeping in his top locker during Army week. His entire 2 c summer Joe spent standing rigidly at attention at the " early morning breakfast club " reveilles. As the " Don Juan " of AnnapoHs. Joe knows how to charm the ladies, but there is only one " senorita " for him. We expect to see Joe leave Annapolis just as he came, with one exception: he ' s added a 10 lb Texan belt buckle to his wardrobe. Shawn Michael Scharf Scharf, Shawn Scharf, Shawn M. Scharf . . . of Christ, it ' s Scharf! Scharf s the boss. 493. Another proud Coloradian, Shawn traded in his elk sweater for hopes of gold wings. The intensity with which he attack- ed everything paid off. He not only earned a systems degree, but reaped several awards along the way; Tau Beta Pi, karate, the Filthy Five and Goon Squad were a few of the elite clubs he was in. Luckily Shawn was an engineer and not an architect. His attempt at remodeling a bulkhead in the 1-2 passageway proved to be as successful as his powder bomb am- bushes. He was always fun to go out with, whether he was punking at UD or donning his ring dance mess dress for the second time. All in all he was a great roommate; no wonder the zoom hated us and no one trusted us together. Remember the good music and the feasts, from spaghetti to peanut butter bananas. Good luck, God bless, and fly high. Hordak. David Edward Sewell Hailing from Humble, Texas (pronounced Umble), Dave came to USNA via the Military Prep School and Texas A M. Alias " Sewell-kid, " Dave entered his new home in Form-2 where eventually he would become " The Boss. " Besides earn- ing an ' N ' and three stars in 150 ' s, Dave earned the covetous Spanish Alphabet Champ Medal in a gruelling free-for-all. A stubborn, hard-headed conservative, he was exactly goon squad material. There were only three things Dave worshipped; his rack, his fiancee Debbie, and his rack. As a hard-core procrastinator, Dave got more rack time than a convict on Death Row. He has been a great roommate and will always be a great friend. 1 hope he gets his A-6 NFO billet. RJT. P.S. We beat Rescue Raiders! Keith Andrew Spencer After being tricked by a guidance counselor into coming to USNA, Keith soon discovered the true value of a uniform. His mother once asked " Is this the girl for this month? " Cuddling must have been his secret strong point, though it wasn ' t always a secret. (Breckenridge ring a bell?) When he wasn ' t chasing skirts, he searched for the gouge formulas needed to plug-n-chug one s way through the academy. Though mentally coor- dinated enough to run his love life, first battalion and 70% of the academy ' s EGAs simultaneously, he managed to break one bone each winter while playing basketball. (His roommates were quite adept at dress- ing him). We ' re glad we knew you, Keith, and wish you the best always. We ' ll never forget Dahlgren articles, Columbia, Breckenridge, stripes, phones, " S ' up " and AACK year. Maybe some day we will meet again, but either way remember: " Now is the winter of our discontent. " r,w j. Michael James Williams I ' Zilla, a future mari . . . oops, I mean naval aviator.

H.S. friends and exit 2 ' s wall. Though he left engineering he didn ' t abandon fluids. Wally World tours took him to Florderdale and York. Not one to miss the action, his life had many notable events: Beemer ' s roommate, crew. Kelly, peeling moose labels, lost pants on 1-95, Ramshead credit sprees, church circle watering, sleeping under a dresser in York, grape races, a stuck head in gate 8, shotguns at SRV, failing Philly Nav, beer helmets deflec- tor shields, circuit training, up and down the river.

Good luck! S,B,F Co. John Joseph Denine Ishmael hails from a little burg in upstate New York. Although he lived in Alabama, he lays no claim to either North or South, saving his fidelity only for the high waves and distant shores of a SWO lubber. He likes to cover all angles, as you will quickly discover should you venture to cross him. This goes for all manner of competition, from simple word battles or intellivision baseball to mob vs. mob basketball. Entic- ing opponents into a " friendly " game of squash he suddenly becomes the khan master, gritting his teeth with an iron will bent on destruction. The written word was his calling and it has held him in good stead. Near top 100 status has come to few with such little effort. His silver tongue and mighty pen landed him the editor ' s seat of The Labyrinth. He is an excellent wielder of words but not of mops (at 0130), eh Bastos? Nonetheless, with lasting words of friendship we say . . Best Wishes and Keep in Touch. DNC PEN. Shawn Estaban Dennis Shawn (not Sean) never met a beer he didn ' t like. His first G-town experience led him to Hood, and he found that he never met a Hood girl he liked. While explaining WE mishaps he often said. " It was alcohol so I drank it. " He put old books to good use at Ramshead. Shawn kept his image as God of love throughout his stay. MG. LS, CV, JW, SY AT can attest to it. He began studying for NL400 early, hearing Miranda rights about every time away from USNA, but it didn ' t work well in ex- plaining the NAPS incident and he spent a dry(?) WE with the breakfast club. Even his skipper ' s daughter youngster cruise wasn ' t safe. Second class summer found a good time in every protramid stop. NoUble points of his career were: Jersey to Balto in 1:15, a car he couldn ' t help but spend on, gargling with Tequilla, LWA sports pages, a shower bonfire. Mount snoring, Boneheads and Hosers, bed time stories, Bud Man Capt. Jack, and a future in P-cola. Jeffrey Scott Earle Jeffs dream in life has always been to be a " bubblehead " , and USNA was the obvious place to start. Majoring in EE and being president of the Dolphin Club helped him get that precious nuke paycheck. His be- ing a EE wasn ' t too bad (only Dave Seawright was regularly coming for gouge) but 1 hated every time 1 got woken up by a plebe coming in to ask how he could get in the next Dolphin Club movement oroer (it happened about 150 times). I still remember clearly when Jeff took me to his house in Kittery, Maine. He spent all week hanging around in short sleeve shirts while 1 was in double sweats with a cold. " It is hot and nice " he always said. A fun- ny thing about Jeff: he is the only heavy metal fan I know that can ' t stand loud music. Jeff will always be rem embered for his love for his Firebird, his usual high speeds and his need for a new wardrobe. I know Jeff will make a good submarine of- ficer. Good hunting and good luck. JCR. I John Jay Hardig Jithn. alias Mr. Decisive, began his career at Navy with a bang, spending two semesters with his gtiod friend Chuck. No matter how much John didn ' t Hke his se cund class model, it began to rub off. As a youngster. John appeared in the Webster ' s under the word sweat. All of his hard work paid off with a position on regimental staff, but that was short lived. John had a tough time remembering who his friends were when he drank. He was offered a box- ing scholarship at Texas A M. but turned it down after his first bout. John ' s car loan was spent tm a sleek, shiny, girlgetter, a Nissan pickup. He took at least a couple of months and a few hundred dollars to decide whether )r not he liked a girl. He was also a firm believer that if he racked 12 hours a day it only took 2 years to get through the Academy. Of course he would never admit that. All in all. Jcthn will be remembered for his decisiveness. Well, maybe — yeh. no . . .1 don ' t know. Albert Wayne Hawkins Al and I have been roommates for the last two years. Al is busy all of the time. If he isn ' t writing songs for his next new band, he ' s at track practice striving for IC4A ' s or merely surviving as one of Navy ' s many gifted " Scientists. " Al studies more than any roommate I ' ve ever had. He studies on weekends, even when SAT. Every weekend he goes off to Baltimore, at Trip ' s house, or some den of iniquity like Odell ' s or somesuch. Al is a great guy, and it ' s hard to get him angry. But. when he ' s mad. he ' s MAD. Like the time youngster year he nearly strangled Sastry for assaulting his stereo with a water bomb at 0400. His taste in music is. to say the least, different. I ' ve learned to appreciate the likes of Doug E. Fresh, Prince, Janet Jackson, and UTFO. He ' s done quite well tolerating the Cars, Randy Newman (almost), the Moody Blues, and even Romeo Void. Al extends his wishes to EK, PH, WM. BT, SH. SS, etc. LOVE GOD. Dab. Patrick Joseph Hosey Despite his best efforts. Pat made it to graduation and freedom — for one day. until his wedding. Pat met Miriam at the Army-Navy Ball second class year. Little did they know they ' d get married. But I did. Right after Ring Dance, in a fit of precognition, I ti Id them so. F at laughed. " Oh, Downtown, you are so crazy. " Miriam just smiled; I think she knew it too. We had wonderful times together. Protramid, an eventful trip to West Point, and a couple visits to Saint Louis to the wonderful hospitality of his parents. Always the English major. Pat read Ulysses first class year. I think it tnily made him insane. Nevertheless Pat is the type of person one could confide in, not only myself, but others as well. His only flaws are a overwhelming attraction to his rack and being one of the sloppiest, yet cleanest, men 1 know. He and Miriam will be moving down to Charleston after SWOS. and 1 won ' t be there. I will miss them. DAB. Henry Alfred Laible Hank came to the boat school from the rainy city of Seattle. He ' s always loved the water which is one of the reasons why he came here. Aside from coxswaining for the crew team and the demands of plebe year, he spent time with a firstie who had taken an interest in his spiritual development. Eric helped him establish priorities in his walk that would prepare him for the fleet. These past four years have gone quickly but Hank has learned a lot about himself. He will graduate in the top 50 of his class with an ocean engineering degree and will be a submarine officer in the nuclear navy. Thanks to Dom and the rest of third. Its been great.

In search of that " Kathy Ireland look, " he ' s acquired quite a menagerie of all types, styles, and ages (Katydid, Kemp Mill Records, Gerards, and all those teddy bears, etc.). But as we ' ve said, he certainly has his serious side. He does nothing halfway and hopes to serve his country as an attache. In sup- port of his goal, he has mastered French and Russian, and plans to serve the Navy as an aviator {P-3s?-Ha!). We really hope you reach your goals. You ' ve been a ex- cellent and loyal friend. Remember us when you ' re a rich and famous songwriter or ?! JD ME. Paul Christopher Rayhill Although his initials " P.C.R. " didn ' t re- flect his strong points at Navy, Palsey underwent some intense training by " The Black Plague, " during Plebe Year. Young- ster cruise was rather uneventful for Pal- sey, but he did manage to bring back a memorable souvenir from Palma. Later that year academics forced Palsey to drop out of EOE and pick up DSB. Taking his cue from Tony Montano, Palsey ' s love life hit an all-time low late in youngster year. Second class year Palsey had better luck at Maggies than he previously had at the Szechwan. for it was there that he met " Big Foot. " Coming out of Junior year as a true LTM. some say Dumpy ' s body had started to decay, but we all know, he was up every morning at the crack of dawn, knocking out some reps. Best of luck in Pensacola, Paul. We just hope you bring extra sic-sacs and that your flying is better than your driving. DB JH PT. Juan Carlos Rodriguez Juan (C ' lan) came to USNA from Ponce, Puerto Rico with two goals: to be an Aero and a pilot. He ran into rough seas in both areas; he had trouble with propulsion and EE most of first class year and he was NPQ up until two days before service se- lection. He ' s still an Aero and after grad- uation, he is P-Cola bound, so I guess everything turned out alright. I still have not figured out how he managed to survive first class year without a car, but I do know that my car has seen Mary Wash- ington College many times, but I have yet to go there. At least he always left me " presents " in my trunk. Other than ac- ademics. Bancroft Medical, and the lack of a car, Juan ' s only major problem was ad- justing to the cold of an Annapolis winter. I still remember him wearing long under- wear during end of semester leave in Maine and he was still cold. Good luck at P-Cola and don ' t worry, it is warm there during the winter. JSE. Erie Matthew Scheulin Eric, hailing from Hawaii, the land of eter- nal summer, came to Navy a man of great expectations. Sailing mightily though all challenges, Eric has survived the Weird- ness of Mech E and the rigors of sailing in weather too cold to sunbathe in. I remem- ber him commenting on how the rest of the sailing team wondered how he ever got along without foul weather gear. Simple, really. No foul weather, who needs gear? Rooming with him, I distinctly remember him always staying up late, making up for his unavoidable early evening naps. First class year brought escape from DC Lotto and then exile to further glory with the Battalion Staff. He will be remembered for his eternal confusion over what went on in-companv. Alas, the price of fame and fortune. Well, Eric is off to P-Cola and hopefully F-l8s. I, for one, am glad he ' s not on the other side. DT.

Dwayne Lindsey How this man got the distinguished name of Bones, onlv his roommates know — and they ' ll never tell. Hailing from Port- smouth, Virginia. Dwayne has always been a hard worker (and tlius the most staid presence in a room full of loonies). This former Old Dominion man and Napster epitomizes the role of a naval officer and future piKtt. Despite a few disagreements with the Mechanical Kngineering depart- ment over grades. Dwayne is still going to graduate as an engineer, an accomplish- ment which (to say the least) overjoys his parents. One of Dwayne ' s primary asseta throughout his stay at USNA has been Christianity; the good example he seta is an inspiration to all. Dim ' t get the wnme idea, though; he isn ' t perfect. Just look who he picked to room with (Orits and Oat«)! Hut seriously. Dwayne is the type of man who attains the gi.als he set.s himself, so I know I d(m ' t have lo worr ' al «nit his future. Take care. Dwayne, and Clod bless! GKC. i h.- i ' .rit(ad( : Fourth Company i Dolores Melina Dorsett Didi left the sunshine of 29 PaJms for the challenges of USNA. Piebe year on 8-4 was no picnic and Didi welcomed the move to 4th. She used T-Court as a background for forming ideas and goals. She had plenty of both! Second class sum- mer, Dicii intended to decide her service selection but had time for a movie. Would it be 2LT or ENS? Ac year was intense with books and a few changes, but great things were to come. Didi assumed her first command and did an outstanding job! At some time, we all discover the real reason we came to USNA. Didi returned to 1-3 second semester but gave up T- Court for the Severn River. " There ' s nothing quit« like tin eight cutting thru the water. " Jody heard you. Who was that man from J. Crew? Terry was the one! Crew can ' t be all bad. The bonfire and sunsets were golden. Lots of things may fade in time, but good friends never will. Intell gets one of our finest! Always go for the brass ring Didi! SS. Letitia Ann Dour Tish stormed into this hallowed institu- tion hailing St.Louis and, of course, them birds — the Cardinals maybe? So much so, that for Halloween she painted blue t«ars on her face for their World Series loss (Go KC!). Tish continually surprised her fellow mids with her calculator (calculating?) mind, easy going nature and tolerance level with roomates. Plebe year passed in all its " Hail in the Hudson " glory (a fave of Co. 2) and Tish finally pit- ching the Halloween pumpkin. Youngster year brought out Tish ' s penchant for sur- prise birthday parties, the rack and devoted boyfriends (here Odie!). Second class summer enforced what D B always had — Tish needed NASAP — 9 hours a day, 5 days total. Beach, Hawaii was also on the agenda that summer, as was expan- ding her cuUnary palat«: " Roni, what ' s that black stuff I ate? " Through the ice cream, B ' J and GQ, it ' s been great. Best of everything to my fave bundle of sticks. Go for it! VSL. James Joseph Duke Jim hailed from Virginia Beach as a wayward surfer with a great tan and strong determination. Plebe year found him competing as a walk-on to the football team. Afterward he found his true calling on the Offshore Sailing team. He worked his way up to skipper his own boat senior year. On his way up, he learned the basic fundamentals of hard partying, putting racing stripes on quite a few cars. Not one of few talents, Jimmy was the backbone of the company heavyweight football offen- sive line for three years running. Though his grades didn ' t ailways show it, Jimmy was the hardest worker in the company academically. Jimmy was and always will be a true friend to me and an example to us all. MGW. Russell William Emons Russ came to the Boat School with only one thought in mind: Navy Air. After a plebe year in 23rd Company with Mr. Pep, Russ ended up here in 4th. Always in- terested in new recipes, but never for himself, he was known to spice up a few drinks at lunch — I wonder how that mustard-strawberry shake tasted? C.C. seemed to have enjoyed it so much that he shared it with everyone. Russ will be remembered in 4th Company as the man nobody remembered. No one will remember, either, the antics we pulled while we were partners in crime, mostly because nobody suspected our capacity for dastardly deeds. An avid fan of the Aero major, Russ ran into some engine prob- lems second class year and managed to prove the hard way that you dont have to go Aero to fly. In the end of it all, Russ found a home in green uniforms. Good luck in the Corps and in the air. CSB. i Roni came to USNA from Nea Makri Greece. After surviving " Weird Harold " plebe summer, she listened to how much she looked like T.G. ' s girlfriend. Roni took all of her frustrations of 2nd Co and " the Hatchet " out on the ergs at the boathouse, where she met Square. Youngster summer found Roni cruising the bay, but not knowing where her parents were. The school year brought her to 4th Co with the new month parties of ' 85 and a contingent of promiscuous men to be sold in ' 86. Second class summer brought vacation to Hawaii, via VAIL. The sun, the surf, the men ! Second class year came and went, so did the SDB ' s and NGB ' s. Then after plebe summer, armed with her convertible bug, Roni began to terrorize Annapolis. Ever been asked " how about a palm tree baby? " Have fun in Beijing, and always remember " ice cream is the source of all Hfe! " LAD.

Late nights and intense efforts paid off for G and those around him. Personally, he rescued me from failure more times than I remember. More than anything, that describes Scrapple: always willing to help. Thanks, George. GED. Luis Jose Polar Luis came to USNA from Lima, Peru via a year and a half at the Peruvian Naval Academy. We never tired of listening to the horror stories of his " real " plebe year. His experiences here may have had serious effects on his outlook, helping to earn him a special place in the nightmares of many plebes. Luis was quick to pick up the language and has become quite Americanized. He has had his moments, however, such as his question " What does yield mean? " while driving down an L.A. freeway. In fact, Luis has become so Americanized that until recently we were trying to convince him to stay here per- manently. It just wasn ' t in the cards, though. Luis is a man with a destiny. Just ask him about riding thru the streets of Lima on a whit horse and wat h his eyes light up. Always loyal to his friends and a real woman killer, Luis will be a definite success. Good luck with your future, Luis. You ' ll always rate free beer in my bar ! PGS. Dennis Paul Richards Denny, from tiny .Johnstown. Pa., came and the struggle began.

Now far ahead the Road has gone. And I must follow, if I can. Pursuing it with weary feet. Until it joins some larger way. Where many paths and errands meet. And whither then? I cannot say. Mike arrived in Annapolis from the bustl- ing town of Seabrook, Texas on a bet from a friend and with little idea of what the Naval Academy was all about. However, fear of the unknown is something Mike never experienced. Mike spent four years knocking heads on the fieldball and touch football teams, combing the foredecks of Navy sailboats, and driving his ' Vette at high speeds. Around the company Mike was known for his willingness to help others and his hidden sense of humor. Outside the Yard, his tall, slender body, blue eyes, and baby face would always catch the eye of the fairer sex. Mike will forever be remembered as a true friend, and the Academy ' s loss will be the Marine Corps ' gain. JJD.

Lately, he has taken to Telarc (DDFD!) classical com- pact discs a far cry from his days of Prince and Grand Master Melle Mel. Vith his tremendous -IKT-K experience, Ruben will enter the aviation community armed with his I ' i-inch survival knife and an in- continence which should ruin many flight suits.

By the end of his first semester that year he earned stars as a fledgling aero major. And the end of youngster year saw Steve the proud owner of the infa- mous Fort Fairmont and the boyfriend of the girl he would marry two days after graduation, Caryn. Second Class year had Steve buried in engineering labs. Plebe Summer, the second time around, as a platoon commander, went much more smoothly and the beginning of the ac- ademic year saw Steve as Battalion Ops. buried in paperwork. Second semester as an MIR was the pinnacle of his midship- man days and Steve began punching the coast button he made and holding cover tossing practice. When Steve replaced the " mont " with a red Corvette, the license plate told the world what we already knew. " I ' d rather be flying an F-14. " Gregory Benedict Cotten Greg entered our beloved Academy filled with an idealism, enthusiasm and ambi- tion befitting our peculiar institution. Af- ter years of hard work, he now embarks upon a career as a nuclear submariner. He achieved many accomplishments of note on the road to graduation. He sits on the Board of Directors of a major insulation firm and was the new Uniform Shop ' s first customer (Photo documentation available upon request). But a warrior ' s life has many trials and tribulations. While here, he endured constant misspellings of his last name, contracted several penicillin- resistant diseases, was deemed " non- commissionable " by Navy doctors on many occasions, and worst of all, his fa- ther denied his request for a new Saab 900. When asked how he overcame such ad- versity, he admits that his quest of Biblical knowledge, particularly through Adam and Eve, and regular scrubbings of his feet have been great sources of comfort and strength to him. Charles Edward D ' Ambra Chuckle Cheese, alias Cheeseballs, came to USNA from California with the intention of doing as Httle work as possible in order to graduate. He succeeded in doing so, skating through plebe year, but managed to simultaneously distinguish himself in track and soccer- earning letters in both. His lack of priorities, however, was set straight upon becoming a firstie and dis covering Baltimore ' s Carol. Thus, it came to pass that Chuck without Carol was like Arabs without oil, bears without fleas. Chuckie without Cheese. He accomplished a goal upon service selection, choosing Navy pilot as his future designation. He will do well in the fleet. We wish him the best of luck in both his marriage and ca- reer. Pete and Fitz. Mark Daniel Hamilton Jark came to us from Wisconsin with the lesire to go to USAFA the following year. ie must have liked it here because he nded up staying to become an Aero ma- or EngHsh minor. Youngster year Mark ame to 5th company and got his mellow eputation almost immediately. In addi- ion, crew and academics kept him away rom the normal " social activities " expe- ienced by the average mids. Fortunately lis hard work paid off with decent grades ;nd team captain for light weight crew as a irstie. Something for which Mark will al- vays be remembered for was his knack for elling people to " lighten up " or " get out of own " when they got too serious. Yes, 4ark, the closet striver, will be happy as a 3 NFO, using his extensive engineering lackground to nuke burritos and work the :offee machine on these long flights. Julie Vearl Helmers Julie Vearl Helmers came to us from sun- ny California after three years of college, working towards a wonderful degree in Chemistry. Plebe year found us together, myself a redneck from Florida. We have spent four years together, from back- shafters to ' Saturday nights at Mc- Garvey ' s. How can two people so different be such good friends? We cannot forget Matt, now can we? Julie managed to prove that there is one good man left in this world by taking him! The two would race to Baltimore in their Porsche at 120 mph. Together they will go to Pensacola to be- come pilots. Best of luck to you Julie, I love you Hke a sister. KEU. Scott Christopher Herbener A Pennsylvania boy. Herbs came to the Academy to escape his small home town in the Poconos. The next four years he was held prisoner in a maximum security school with people with names like: Soupfat. Ogg. Cheese, and Scum. Well Herb ' s had a special name too. Anyway, arriving at 5th after an " utterly simple " plebe year. Herbs was quick to take the offensive and establish his leadership style. Herbs found himself in the highly respected position of Company Sub- Commander, but not without his share of misfortunes. There were academic and conduct trouble throughout his stay at the academy; however, he owes his life to one man — Ranger Green who heroically saved him from the perils of Loft moun- tain (as well as the early birs). We look forward to sending Herbs to the fleet con- fident that he has been properly trained for his important role in our nation ' s de- fense (Coke machine operator).

Smce the two are not inseparable he joined the silent-but-wealthy service. Gumby will leave USNA riding in his dream of a 911SC, an ambitious achieve- ment for someone whose idea of a metropolis was Staunton (rhymes with wanton). Nick chose chastity aboard a submarine to horde his money rather than succumb to a foolhardy marriage to some spendthrift. This may be because a certain nameless HDHP (not a calculator) had the audacity to order a glass of Perrier on a date. But submarines were not enough. While Uking FP210 he thought he had a calling for a future in the foriegn service. As a Firstie. Nick had arrived. He was made a Midn. Lt. for two semesters! He blew off formations and racked endlessly but still had the gall to inspect others. We wish him fast subs, expensive cars, and cheap women. Alton Hugh Coleman (our thanks to the j. geils band and a case) Does he walk? Does he talk? Is he taller than five feet? Our Stone Mountain Georgia roommate Will be a benefit to the fleet. He was an aero major Undoubtedly a brain Putting up with the Tater Did n ot drive him insane. Years go by, we ' re look- ing through a Proceedings magazine here ' s our Stone Mountain roommate-An elf in an F-14. (chorus) The bullfrogs run slow. Our memories no longer flow. Our elf is an NFO, Elf is an NFC. Slipped us cookies under the desk. His packages were always the best. We were stuffed, we turned away Before we ate them all. Played Daltrey, Kinks and the Who While he hashed those baby blues. Swimming had a hold on him; Hawaii was a ball. Those aviator wings Too magical to touch, To see him as an NFO Is really just too much. Robert Eric Coleman Pretty-Boy, this l.jud obnoxious Texan came to us from the Thirsty-Third. 1 don ' t think that he was ever able to quench his thirst and his patronage at the local taverns has proven it. If you ever needed to find Eric during the week, all you had to do was look for him in the wardroom. This was because he dropped a real major and went Phy-Sci (The Brotherhood). Eric started off as a varsity pole vaulter, but because of numerous hamstring pulls and some disagreements with the coach was forced into retirement as an intramural star. Out in town Eric ' s perfect hair, Texas accent and B.S. have always been a hit with the local women. We had many good times here, I hope to continue them in San Diego. And Eric, if any of this bothers you, I can only say, " I ' m sorry, I apologize. " MSM. ..0 [kW rli ' H Matt ' s the only guy we know who en- counters physical pain when spending money. That ' s why he got his family ' s Honda sedan from his dad with his car loan. An avid sports fan. Matt rarely miss- ed a home basketball game or wrestling match. In the summers, you could find in the rack or on the golf course. As a dedicated Systems Engineer. Matt spent many hours sharpening his computer skills — computer games skills, that is. Starting with youngster year. Matt quick- ly established himself as the great Scam- Master with the famous Systems Scam. (Remember that erne, Al?) Matt pulled more pranks than Barboursville, West Virginia has pick-ups. and no CMOD ' safe. The Army-Navy game first class year saw Matt finally drinking into oblivion due to a lost bet. Seriously, though, Matt ' s the best friend anytme could ask for, and will make the USS South Carolina a fun place to be. Take care and good luck with your future. BNBPPOJCK. We ' ll miss Sean, but not nearly as much as the fast food establishments he so often frequented. A near legend in town.

His main interest seemed to be in the military and academics, but it didn ' t take long for the interest to move over to 10 Porter Road in the form of a tall, blue- eyed, blonde-haired girl named Liz. This ? i H convenient location for a " wife " provided his roommate with many quiet hours alone in the room, and even when Ty was present it was still quiet, because he was usually asleep.

" After an intense plebe experience in 23rd, the switch to Slack Six was a welcome relief. Andy quickly earned a reputation for his soft-spoken, sentimental qualities — he never had a harsh word for anyone. Youngster and second class year were challenging, but hard work and perseverance pulled him through. An Australian exchange cruise first class sum- mer provided a cultural awakening, as Drew explored the peaks and valleys in several foreign countries. He returned to the Academy a changed man, and served as company sub-commander. Study as much as he did, Drew was never lacking for women. Despite all of his talk, he even managed to establish some very localized relationships. Drew is now P-Cola bound.

Patrick Owen Shea I don ' t think a paragraph can be written about Pat without mentioning Youngstown, Ohio. Apparently, every ma- jor player in the NFL is from there, or at least from Ohio. All joking aside, Pat is a very strong believer in his home and his family. He puts intense effort into all he does, from his oceanography major and his demanding weighthfting schedule to fiancee, Paula. One of the few people I know who can carry on a conversation with a bench press, Pat has developed quite a physique. First and Second class years brought many adventures for him including numerous road trips and a wild fling with a spunky little road whore named Boom Boom. Alas his affair has ended and now he will settle for a quaint httle domestic life with his new German ride.

Patricia Marie Corsello I ' ntti came to USNA from the wilds of Jersey with a basketball in her hand and track shoes on her feet, which gave her a little trouble on hardwood floors Youngster year, she abandoned the court,s for open fields, then for wire wheels.

Still, she ' s never put all-nighters ahead of a night on the t iwn, or friends who needed her.

Rodrigo Matutina Dill Young Hod ' s conservative Alwood, Kan- sas upbringing is easily seen in his lifestyle. Not quite a mooch, he does like to wear other people ' s underwear and the combat l oots he found in a garbage can. Truly progressive, he was always the first to blow his pay on clothes, listen to the •Screaming Blue Messiahs, and totally trash a new vehicle. Hod endangered his flyb iy career when he tradea in his motocross bike for a tray tii sled vertically on.

Once here, he decided to join a sport to fit his limp wristed lifestyle. One of his greatest ac- complishment.s at the Academy is the amount of time he logged in the rack. -Jim is ime mid that worships the blue magnet religiously. If he is not in the rack, he is trying to attract girls of all sizes. Once he meets girls, he has this problem of being " backed I. ' " yds and punted.

Upon arrival in Lucky Seven, she quickly proved to be a true friend, going out of her way to help us in time of need and desperation. Originally an Ocean-0, Dawn found Engine Math too trivial to bother with, so she switched to Phy. Sci. Skilled in volleyball and Softball, D.D. established herself as a relentless racquetball com- petitor. The pride of 2nd Battalion ate up the competition and picked on the guys for fun. Given that her favorite uniform cosists of Levi ' s and tennis shoes, Dawn ' s interests (other than studying) range from partying in cemeteries to scuba diving to § dancing at various G-town clubs {my feet f are still tired). The best lefty driver, she fi stopped only to refill her tank (Bartles-n- •I James don ' t count!) Everyone here will miss Dawn, but no one will miss her more than me. Good luck, but not Sayonara! ECW. Mary Ellen Green Meg came to USNA from Dahlgren, Virginia. Most people see Meg as being very quiet and studious, but to those of us who know her well, she is an outgoing, warm girl. Most of her free time is spent with her horses, her pleasure books, and the fencing team, of which she was manager for four years. As an English ma- jor, Meg put her fine reading and writing talents to great use, earning close to a 4.0 each semester throughout her four years. Her scholarly abihties are not restricted to English, she is a wiz in every class at the academy, including EE (but one semester it gave her intense problems and caused her grade to sink to a " B " ). Although most people at USNA are not too excited about serving on a grey ship, Meg is extremely anxious to become a surface warrior. Meg, thanks for being the best roomie in the world. Anyone who can put up with all the visitors 1 had is a saint. Good luck on AD44! Love you, PC. Thomas Patrick Hearn " Heamdog " came to the Boat School from the burrow of Pt. Pleasant, New Jersey, after a brief stint in Laredo, Texas. After a psychotic year on 7-4 with Kaiser and the boys. Tommy joined us in 7. Youngster year he resided where doves cry with a bedwetting roommate. They could often be found with hangers on their heads and tricks up their sleeves. Searching the far extremes of the Goucher Galaxy, Tommy finally found R2-D2, plunging later towards the Rosemonster at Second Class Army. First Class Arrny, on a desperate search for deer meat. Tommy would not relinquish his protective shower cap, even when he dropped in on the lounge, where he learned one of his many languages-jive. Throughout his four years. Tommy con- sidered crawling around with the Grunts, only to hear his true calling, Cryptology. A pleasant alternative for his dear mother, Chicky, and family. Good luck T. Hearn, your wit made our stay a lot easier. JJR and ECS. Leslie Ellen Hirko Giving up an opportunity to go to Party School, USA in her hometown of Chico, California, Leslie found a new home in 15. She spent much of her four years at the boathouse as the original " amby. " While perfecting the art of abusing her body, she brought spirit and life to those long workouts. Youngster year brought Leslie down to 5-0. She then decided that the fountain pen was mightier than the keyboard, so off to Sampson she went. Second class year held a new roommate and a reputation to uphold. Untouched by Paradise Alley, Sarge ran the plebes as she learned in Mean Fifteen. All soon learned, call her anything else — but don ' t call her " sir. " Firstie year came, as did chow packages (thanks. Mama). Being " too gungy for Quantico, " Sarge opted for a career as a surface warrior and headed back to the west (best?) coast. Surface line is in for a pleasant surprise. They ' ve cer- tainly gained one of Navy ' s best. Good luck. Joey. LMH,PSB. Sandy came here after spending a year at Villanova, where he realized his true desire to be a humanities major. He spent plebe year in 33rd company. After working hard on his youngster cruise, Sandy showed up on 5-0 ready to fulfill the duties of a history major. He proved himself to be a motivated individual, going to Airborne school and being a company commander during plebe detail and academic year. He was a very dedicated member of OCF, a great guitar player, and was always willing to help others out. Along with RSM and JKH, Sandy always helped to make life in the hall more fiin than it really was. We knew where his thoughts were, though. He was one of the few who foimd the girl of his dreams before becoming a mid. Thanks for being such a great friend and roommate all these years. May you have all the best in the USMC. WRM. Bill hailed from Fargo, North Dakota and spent his plebe year with the boys from Four, most notably John L., Dave S., and Mike H. After garnishing honors as the plebe chow-call scheduler. Bill bolted for cruise and eventually returned to his new niche in Mother B. — Seventh Heaven. In Lucky 7, Bill distinguished himself as an aero stud, a dedicated CCD teacher, a fine violinist, a Con Squad instructor, the First Class Ticket Coordinator, a great guy for K.H., R.M., and 1 to rumble, and an outstanding roommate. After graduation. Bill will put his aero ability to work as an NFO, and hopefully land in the space pro- gram. When I reminisce about " my Academy days, " the first person who wiU come to mind will be my friend and room- mate. Bill Muscha. I don ' t think I ' ll ever forget Bill ' s warm, friendly, often mischievous grin, and his loyal friendship during the glory years of 7th Company. Thanks for everything. Bill, GO BISONS! Sandy. JAM. Laurie Mustek Laurie came to the academy from Mead- ville, PA, two years before us on the crest of a wave. As a member of the Class of ' 85, she was determined to become the best swimmer in Navy ' s history. Stroke after stroke, she drowned her competition until Lejeune ran out of wall space to hang her awards. But this little mermaid was soon mesmerized by King " Bill " Neptune. With engagement planned, Laurie left USNA to become a household landlubber. Deciding there were better fish in the sea, the engagement sank and Laurie returned to the academy to become a member of the best class. Her decision gave the 7th com- pany a chance to get to know the real Laurie. She learned to party with the best of us, even though her quarter never found the shot glass. We will always remember your great personality and the Musiek " smile. " Best of luck to you and Angelo in the future. Reach for the stars and you will find happiness. The best class " 85N2. " DDR.

He insists that he is known by his admirers as TM, but his friends know that Jeff needs EI in this category. Shector is always known to score heavily with the " good looking girls. " Some of his most impressive scores have been the likes of the human bottle opener and most are above one and a half bells. One contributing factor to his success is his diet of barley and oats before going out. Jeff is the one man freak show in the company that will be missed by everybody, especially by the boys in 7A.

Sully also found happiness in New London during second class summer, right before Brian quenched his thirst. Second class year kept Ed busy, after prime time he wrote lots of letters, parted the Red Sea, and still found time to babysit at Killington. Sec- ond class year also saw the birth of the Texas Tremmer as we now know it. First class summer saw Sully contribute to California ' s pollution problem, let alone Shirley ' s iron cord. First class summer in the South of France, he hit paydirl. Charlie and Barbara were always suppor- tive, and the food wasn ' t bad either. Sully. good luck with Navy air, you ' ve made it a fun ride.

Lawrence Francis Britt I arry comes from that great town of Port Jefferson on the Island only to meet his roommate G-dog on I -day and has since roomed with him all 4 years at the Academy.

Larr ' . who was known to w jrk hard on cleaning his room for formal insjiections. on 2 for 7 night stripped the floor without the use of manufactured products. LB, thought the USNA curriculum was not sufficient so he substituted it with Ludlum and Personal magazines. After 4 years at the Academy he still has trouble distinguishing between regulations and liberty. LB. is an avid supporter of .James Webb ' s philosophy on women in the Academy.

Douglas Michael Hines Doug came here with a ten dollar bill in his pocket; he still has it. His generosity is ap- parent in bars with his friends; he ' s always willing to buy if his friends have money. He ' s great to invite home, if you remind him to bring his wallet and leave the burgers al school. His black sock look has become the latest fad, along with Goat shirts. A former valedictorian. Doug is the ultimale sweat aboul his ILilH; he staved at USNA the first (wo weekends of each semesler I.) do all his papers. Doug chose the dark, underwater career to share his genius, but we wonder if " dinero " ' wasn ' t a factor. Hopefully, this won " t interfere with his love for women and the fanciful tales he shared every Sunday night. Doug is very kind and thoughtful and takes the criticism we give him in the humor that is intended. Robert Scot Hopkins Scot comes from Fairfax, Virginia, a town so rich that the " ' poor trash " ' are the ones who drive Volvos. Hoppy always knows a good deal when he sees one. He bought a used car (he always did like older things), got a girlfriend who made more money than he did. and went submarines. More dear to his heart than any good deal, though, is a dark room with a faint smell of ozone and a good computer. I ' nfor- tunalely. he spent so much time playing games that his grades never refiected his computer brilliance. Whether he was sink- ing Kirovs in Navtag, obliterating dwarves in the Barbarian Kingdom, or bashing in the heads of enemy archers, Scot has always given his all. Although he might be a bit (oo tall, we all wish nim good luck and know that he will do well wherever he goes. JVM. 278 The Brigade: Eighth Company Marshall Brent Brown Marshall, a true Texan, had an eventful year in the Deuce Co. A separated shoulder and two Ac. Boards contributed to good times. Youngster year brought Disco D and a Baltimore red head. That summer he got to know a babysitter in a BMW. Second class year Downtown did his part for the Army exchange, taking two Woops on Friday night libs. After two bottles, they got a personal escort from St. John ' s police. Not to be deterred. MB im- proved USNA-St John ' s relations. He still gets nervous when someone whistles " Dix- ie. " At the ' 86 CAA hoops tournament, MB decided to push the rented red Renault to the limit. He managed to get a ticket for 70 in a 20 mph zone. He later met Kathryn, who has figured into his ac- tivities ever since. First class year as a Pla- toon Commander. MB could usually be found in his jeep, at Rutgers, watching hoops, or at the Rams Head. MB departs for a SWO career in San Diego. Good luck buddy. CEC. Charles Edward Casson The Assassin, from Lancaster, Mass., distinguished himself Plebe year as a " wild man. " Third Class year Chuck emerged as a true partier. Goucher will long remember his twister moves. A M.O. to Del introduc- ed CC to Jose Cuervo and ended his allegiance to hard liquor. Escorted to his room by a LT and a CDR, he still avoided a fry. Charles enjoyed Spring Break ' 86 at USNA. Late in the year Chuck met Amy, a relationship that has become an impor- Unt part of his life. Cruise took CC to Ti- juana. " Dos Carta Blancas por favor " is still the deepest statement in his Spanish vocab. This request was often heard at staff meetings in the Ram ' s Head. Chuck possesses a fine sense of direction, everyone comes home from DC via Baltimore. He has potential as a future USNA movement officer. A great Com- pany Commander. CC promoted interser- vice relations with a fall trip to Colorado. Good luck in the nuclear navy buddy, hap- py hunting. MBB. Jennifer Culbertson Jenn arrived at the Naval Academy from King George. Virginia. Land of the Cows. Considering such auspicious origins, she had the gumption to try to make boat s float. She discovered, however, that mak- ing boats float was not her greatest challenge; her challenge was not being known as Jenni NMN. Despite this little setback, Jennifer conquered and became a Trident Scholar. Her only problems now are Duty Petty Officers and parking spots. She does, however, graciously thank VGEPers and Color Company members. In all seriousness, though — I won ' t men- tion a bar in Sigonella — Jenn knows what she wants. She ' s a SWO. Presently, Jenn is on the breaking edge of sonar dome design, and I ' ve no doubts that she ' ll one day achieve her dream (jf designing the yacht that will win the America ' s Cup. We all wish Jennifer the best of luck. May she always have fair winds and following seas! RAS. Demetrius Lynn Flewellen Mr. Dog, The Dog Monster. Mr. Bark, Double D, MD, Bark Monster, The Snooze Dog. What can be said that hasn ' t been summed up by his nicknames? Well, he ' s the first g ' v I ' ve ever met named Demetrius, and also the first who was ac- tually a Boy Scout and Sea Cadet. Truly, Mr. Dog is a breed apart. And Hke any breed of hound, Lynn enjoys his rest. In fact, I think his list of preferences is; sleep, computers, sleep, Cosby show, sleep, and food. I ' ll remember my roommate of three years as the epitome of laid-back Califor- nia cool. I have yet to see him get really mad about something. Although he got beat up by the academic stick his first few semesters here, he never coniplained, but stuck with it. Years from now his comic books will be mouldering in an attic and his pet computer will be on a shelf in Goodwill, but Lynn will be the same as always, Mr. ChiUed and the best friend a guy could have. Tear ' em up in the fleet, Bark Monster! HFM. Thaddeus John Kuziela This relic from the fleet had an up and down career at the Academy. From a shaky start plebe year to the high rank of 8th Company Sub-Commander. Still waiting to hear from Ed McMahon and the Clearinghouse Sweepstakes, the old man from the sea made a big catch on a fishing trip to Delaware only to have the fish jump out of the boat. Ted is a finan- cial wizard who keeps VISA and Master- card in business and anyone who crosses his path is destined for Econonic Sanc- tions. Kuzi learned the terrors of N.J. while sporting his new, freshly waxed Monte Carlo SS around scenic Alcyon Lake only to have his car requisitioned by the Camden Connection. All joking aside. Ted has been Hke a father to us in the 8th Company and many thanks are extended to him for keeping many of us out of trou- ble on our way to an enjoyable stay here at the Academy. SL. PG. DR. LB. Michaele LaForge True to her heritage, the former Hatch Chili Queen never satisfied her desire for Mexican meal, tobasco, or Taco Bell bur- ritos. In an instant, she ' d down her refried beans — or offer them if you seemed hungry. Plebe summer we rescued her from crew and made her a cross country stud. Her knees gave way (basketball in- jury) so she graced the golf and sailing teams with her talents. We won her back for the finale. Michaele can ' t be beat: the fastest car, the best racquetball game, the most defined muscles. She can conquer any soul wrestling. The coolest clothes and most progressive music — she topped us all. Her adventuresome spirit kept us on our toes. Who knows? Without you we ' d have been stripers. Navy Air gets one of the best. Watch out, Gretchen. However far we stray, our friendship will be true. You have a great life ahead. We ' ll see you driving a white Porsche to the course; maybe we ' ll have time for RT. We love you. Bye! Scott Charles Leach Goat hailed from Pitman, New Jersey via the Marine Military Academy hoping to be a pilot and fly jets. He started his career with a stellar academic performance in the 14th Company plebe year. After the scramble, we came together here in the polar bear company. He was sort of USNA ' s answer to HULK HOGAN. Goat would never pass up a challenge to wrestle in any of the Annapolis and Philadelphia hotels. He was always the model midship- man, too worried about weekends to get into any trouble. Aside from his wrestHng forays. Goat is pretty much a non-hostile person so don ' t think he means anything if he throws a beer on you. It ' s felt here that Goat missed his calHng, he should ' ve gone to modeling school to pose for the brown- eyed special. Goat, it ' s been a long four years, good luck in P-Cola and stay away from fighting the Algonquin Indiems like your grandfather. TK, PG. DR. LB. Paul Christopher Lewis Arriving from Cherry Hill, NJ via NAPS, third class year found PC rooming with SL TK NavArc taking up all of his time to shower . . . thus " Stinky. " Having enough of the x-dog clan, second class year saw PC moving in with CT JW. Admit- ting defeat. Paul dropped up to CompSci only to drop down to PhySci months later. Army Navy found him in U.K. — fingerless gloves with peppermint mouthwash. Each holiday found PC spending his last $ (and T ' s last $) trying to see T. An expert on MAC flights. It only took a few trips for T to realize that he was Navy ' s BMOC (wink) and the Yank for her. Guys became blokes and beer wasn ' t good enough unless dark microwaved. First class year brought T to the US and a balanced check book. He gave her everything: love, money, and the Laser (which she arove like a WWII vin- tage jeep). Shakespeare once said. " The course of true love never did run smooth. " These two are living proof. Looks like fun too. The Brigade: Eighth Company 279 Howard Franklin Morritt H.« trntTd ■! Ihr A.ml -inj l ■nl Hirn V i .

First class year. Scott decided that after three long years of hard work it was lime to relax, and relax he did. ' ou ' ve seen a paper weight, well Scott became the perfect Bed spreadweight. On the weekend. Quinnie could not be found al USNA unless it was beyond his control. Instead he would go home to visit his family iind the appen dage. Karen.

Joan Marie Rangitsch Although Jciunie came here as Wyoming ' s " Athlete of the Year " and Kemmerer ' s valedictorian, her volleyball career at USNA was soon spiked and her grades followed suit. However, she became one of Navy ' s finest hurdlers and reigned as cap- tain during her last track season. What ' s more, her grades kept improving after she became a true scientist — no more com- puter stuff! Joanie ' s social life consisted of I ' etipte Magazine.

Stephen Michael Teeple Teeps came to USNA from Archbald, Pennsylvania, home of the famous (in his mind) Archbald Pot Hole and The Pipes. Steve arrived at Navy with fire and bnmstone, but learned Ihal everyihing isn ' t always fair at IISNA. Youngster year was an eye opener when he earnea l grand and a black " N " sweater all for two sips of beer. Teeps was recruited to play football, but a bone jarring tackle plebe year put Steve and his shoulder out of commission. After his accident Teeps stuck to company sports and excelled. Teeps excelled academically as a systems engineer, though you could hardly tell with all the complaining he did. Teeps planned on leaving a long string of broken hearts, but he was ju.Ht " too nice of a guy " to let that happen. Now he is going to the world of surface warfare in Ma.yport. In his career and future I wish Teeps all the luck and happiness in the world. Most of all Steve, rememljer through it all " We did it our way. " Christopher Kerr Thomassy What about Happy?

PL. 280 The Brigade; Eighth Company Timothy Hugh Rayner Tim ' s career started in an unique Raynerian way: his Boxer Rebellion dur- mg Plebe Summer. Then he had a series of drinking adventures (every weekend) and love affairs (with every woman he met) to make it through Plebe Year. Youngster year saw the end of D B and Gordon ' s " upperclamps, " two cars: the Duty Underclass K-car and the lemon Mercedes, and finally, his Conversion. His meetings changed his life, at least a little, and he finally became serious. Right. Although he ended his adventures, he con- tinued to have a good time at the expense of his math ($1,100 biU on a $500 Master- card limit), and the other women he swore he loved. Whether trying out for every sports team USNA had, or finding yet another way to be different (Med School), Tim was never at a loss to keep his friends curious. He is the best, and he has made his mark. USNA was never a hindrance to his lifestyle; his lifestyle proved to change USNA. PSB,CMK. JAM. Donald Wayne Robbins An oysterman, Don came to the Naval Academy from south New Jersey. Dewey, who has spent many hours riding with G- dog for experience, had to learn cars don ' t bounce off of telephone poles like soccer balls. Don had been a star in high school and planned on continuing it at the Naval Academy, but Coach @! convinced him to drop the athlete part of student- athlete. Once caught in academia, Don could be found sweating grades occa- sionally, at least until 4-weekers, when all of his papers were complete. Don doesn ' t care much for physical exams, wheezing at the sight of his own blood (or others ' for that matter) and nearly losing it all when Captain Hook inserted his crook. One can always tell when Don is laughing, though, either that or a three alarm fire is in pro- gress. Don ' s headed for a career with the bubbleheads: his big-hearted generosity should get a little bigger now. Best of luck in Orlando. DMH. Kenneth Andrew Ross At NAPS Ken was a gridiron legend (in his own mind). Coach T quickly revised the books though, as Ken became a boxer after two weeks. As an ex-football player he was a terror, but not terrible enough to pummel an ex-trackman or rugby player. Tired of our comments, he left the ring due to an ear-ailment. Pumpkinhead is known for generosity (parties for Army, with no girls) and academic prowess. Ken prays regularly to Tecumseh, and noone can get gouge because he owns the file. Cruises were his opportunity to excel. One ex-mid went to captain ' s mast after waiting all night for Ken to return from a 15 minute rendevous. Pumpkin turned pink and red on the beach, as everyone else became part of the big green machine. Speaking of Marines, a certain USIS ma- jor (the company Marine rep and Ken ' s instructor) was his big brother for a semester: no longer, as Ken went Navy Air. He ' ll be a welcome addition. Best of luck. DMH. John Forest Sledgianowski To paraphrase the Bible the question is posed: " Can anything good come out of New Jersey? " Don ' t ask what exit. John answers in his own unique fashion. But then again fashion is hardly a term one associates with Sledge. Knowing no other meaning for G.Q. than general quarters, his favorite civies consist of bellbottom jeans and a dungaree shirt. However, to his credit, he refuses to stencil his name above the left-hand breast pocket. Perhaps his most telling downfall is his ability to find jobs requiring copious stacks of paperwork ranging from OCF ac- tivities director to battalion sailing coach to company conduct officer. However, Sledge knows his limitations, so when knocked out of the fox hunt by a young vixen from Southern California, he evaluated his finances and realized there was but one service selection-nuke sub. So John if while enjoying the big bucks you happen to gaze skyward, remember your old roomie. God bless you. RT. Roland Michael Towers Auspicious is a good adjective to describe this quiet shasta mountain-man from Redding, California. Roland ' s subtle charm seems to follow his every endeavor. Whatever he sets his mind on, he seems to succeed at, whether it ' s excellent shooting at the varsity pistol range, scoring several touchdowns for the company football team, or leading his platoon in precision drill. R.T. can also be found demonstrating his social expertise with a particular Goucher student with whom he has succeeded. Roland has had his ups and downs as an aerospace major. Many of these ups and downs were also experienc- ed during the intriguing trips with Wally ' s world tours. These trips also found Roland in peculiar predicaments which included close encounters with sharks and wild hotel Chinese fire drills. The best of life is wished upon Roland during his future flight training and naval aviator ' s career. JSandWK. John Eric Wanebo The key to John ' s success was his uncanny ability to avoid knowing things that might prove inconvenient. Improvised ignorance saved him from the drudgery of the cogni- zant, leaving him plenty of time for runn- ing, cycling and skiing. There were times when his unique skill failed him: at the plebe year dining-in he arrived with woman ' s tie. Youngster year, John gained fame for returning every weekend at the five minute chow call. That training came in handy during spring break when he made his last run down a Swiss piste with less than 24 hours to MAC back. Despite appearances, John always had his bases covered. Second class year, in case of a change of heart, he enrolled at UVA. He lost the dorm deposit, but we were glad he stayed. First class year, like a snake in the grass, he combined summer school, valida- tion, and overloading to meet premedical requirements. Years from now we ' ll be hearing about John as a top not«h Naval Surgeon. THR. John Gregory Wilson J.G. came to USNA via NAPS with a childhood history in Camden, New Jersey and a determination to become an EE ma- jor. Third class year proved to be a challenge for J.G. and saw him having to settle for GE (if he could hold it). He still managed to sharpen his skills in EE on the many weekends at USNA by fixing almost every appliance in the company, even if it wasn ' t broken. No wonder nothing ever worked correctly. J.G. spent much of his time second class year boxing until his studies caught up with him and told him to divert his time to aerobics, which he soon became an instructor. His workouts were great but his junk food diet had to go (Frankenberry, Coco Puffs, Applejacks, etx:.) No wonder he was always dancing (with or without clothes). One thing always impressed me about J.G., he always helped us keep our sense of humor. PL, CT.

So many waves did he make that you either loved (as most did) or hiitcd him JP was never one to be idle, as he was on the scnrcer team for four blood and sweat filled years and was the main man in the Catholic Chapel Organization. He even cimvinced his piebes inat he was going Chaplain Corps. A helpless but always forpving romantic, JP is an idealist with a great shoulder U} lean on, always with an open ear This contributed to his WL tendencies (PC) but he ' d be the first to admit it, never worrying about what others thought. You can always see a friendly smile on his youthful face and somehow know thai he is a person of great compassion and uncanny truthfulness. I ' ll always know that you are (me of my most treasured friends. NOKVAL. JP. you were always there when I needed y()U. Thanks for sharing your love with me and helping me keep tne faith. I will never forget you. ILYF(YBINMT).PC. David Allen Burns Dave came to us from U-xington. Ken- lucky, but was actually a native nomad born in Michigan and living also in Delaware and Ohio. Oave endured the grueling plebe environment of 18th com- pany before coming to 9 in the Great Scramble. Dave broke tne shackles of physical science and became a general engineer second class year, a rare feat and a tribute to his quiet dedicatit)n. He gained fame as the company in-house college basketball expert, organizing annual tourney PooIh in which he always came in second. The highlight of his Navy sporta career was coaching the company lightweight football team, A SWO all the way. Dave picked the USS BIDDLK (CG- 34) as his first slop. The only thing they can be sure c)f is that he ' ll stay out of trou- ble. Thanks for the laughs. Roundhead, glad to have had you " around " ! AJF. Orlando Gotay, Jr. Prr ifrj. C.C.

Eduard Erich Gottschaik Ed came ttj us from that beautiful country in the Caribbean, the Dominican Republic. When he got to USNA, Father Guido realized that his chowcalls needed a lot of work, aa no one understood them. Piebe year went by quickly as Ed spent his time dreaming with Frauke. As a youngster he found that it pays to study juHt as hard for all couraes as he had 5 A ' s and 1 F in his favorite one. He ' s had more than his share of academic gnef as Profs. Hall and Allen joined to make liberty almost imixmsible for him. He al»o man- aged to almost make it through USNA without getting fried, but a mouse that roamed tne hall prevented him from hav- ing a flpoUeas conduct record.

James Anthony Henderson Hendu is a tough guy on whom to write a bio; there ' s just too much to aay. Hendu acrarobled into nifty 9 from 19 to remain always in the limelight; talked everyone ' s ears off ab4)ul pro knowledge, made sure everyone recognized his humhienesa. and eetablished himself as one of the premiere dreaserw in fashion hiBU)ry. We ' ll never forget the tales of all the gorgeous girls or all the suppt sed mountains that became mole hills, like the unbelievably affordable " luxury " condo in Quebec ... All laughs aside, Hendu was a su[ erb classmate, a crew jock, a cyclist, a 4 stn( er. a History major, a two time nlebe detail member, an electee to Who ' s Who. and a grad student. Jamie is and always will l e one Ui rise Ut the ti p and stay there. But. the thing we ' ll best remember is that Jamie was a great friend and the kind of guy you don ' t ever forget. RP and J HB. Bernard Edwin Koehr For those of us who know and love him, Bemie got off to a ood start plebe year with second class Pierce and 25th Com- pany. Rumor has it that Pierce hasn ' t sur- vived, but Bemie has. Moving into 9th company. Bemie had Jim B. as a room- mate, and on one occasion, a goat with which t share his bed. EE proved to be too much for him. so Bemie took to Physics as his neit best choice for a major. Second class year won Bemie the respect and admiration of his piebes for his dedication to professionalism. His locker storage was also something t4) admire. And then there ' s the night of the exploding ap- ple. Thanks Bemie First class year almost did Bemie in as our company commander. Fortunately, he ' s come to realize that there ' s more to the Navy than USNA. As we now depart our home of 4 years. I want to wish him the best of luck as a future sub driver, and to let him know that I ' ll always be there when he needs me. DTW, 288 The Brigade: Ninth Company Thomas Joseph Clark T.J. ' s theory-never let academics get in the way of your education. Instead, learn the ways of the sea. Is that not what we are all here for, anyways? Dcj this and you shall surely finish in first place, not third, o he says. Fair wind and following seas, always. KMP. George Horace Council Stepping out of the car on I-day sporting that cut and a Fred Perry, it was obvious that the city of brotherly love was upon the navy. As a lean mean jumping machine. Ice amazed fans with the grace and style only known to Sixer fans. Its been five years since those glory days of motorcycles, the bomb squad, and 0P3 but the jumping ability ancl the cut still re- main. Plebe year y(ju and Eileen managed to survive the cab fares and T.P. Youngster year brfiught new challenges as yr u devoted your life to loving. Now one engagement and four PCRs later, its all over for the Corps awaits Salt and Pepper. Halsey and Macdonough will never be the same without you. Good luck to you and Stinky, Daniel Joseph Doherty The defiant son of a former woop, Dan came to us from the arctic region of Min- nesota. As an acknowledged plebe year sweat, he was introduced to a life of slothfulness second class year. No stranger to G-town as an underclass, the best in Dan was brought out by schooners, which made a night out on the town with him a real adventure. Dan ' s incredible dancing ability earned him many a pen pal. (Where was that. Dan — the Bahamas?!) Always a professional mid as long as it did not in- terfere with his weekends or rack, he found that he was fighting a losing battle when he moved into the barn with the other animals. First class year brought the completion of Dan ' s goals with the pur- chase of a gaudy ' Vette and obtaining that much desired flight billet. Good luck and fly high voung man. you have served your masters well. JSR JSL. Anthony John Fabian Tony came to good ole USNA from Lead- ville. Colorado, a small town in the Rocky Mountains and the highest in the U.S. He ventured into the 21st company as a plebe and had a " real " plebe year. After the Big Scramble, he ended up in Cloud Nine. Second class year came along and Tony was a real flamer until he was told to chill out by his marshmallow squad leader. Things perked up for him when he bought his Third — his pride and jov. Then came first class cruise, when Tony fell in love with the Iowa so much that he chose it for service selection. After first class year, the trips to Delaware and " Pulsations " , and the business about his pay getting " gronked!. " Tony was more than ready to graduate. Bye. bye. Squarehead, see you in Norfolk! DAB. John Scott Lewis Loomis comes from backwoods Ohio where men are men, beer is plenty, and a fast car is more important than a fast girl — or any girl in John ' s case. His taste in girls was characterized by the photo of his prize winning bovine on his desk. John went unnoticed the latter half of plebe year with the help of Bombs and Gards, remember how you " shared " their stereo? As a youngster he learned how to max rack, liberty and slovenliness and still get a 4.0. Intoxicated he could do more and think clearer than most sober people: remember PSU? Second class summer John was taken under the wing of the legendary PJ, USNA ' s hardiest partier, and has used his acquired skills since. Rooming with John was a joy as long as you didn ' t wake him up, take his paper or badmouth his beloved Mets, Celtics or Navy B-ball. John ' s dreams of surface life were lured away by $ and subs. John, take care it ' s been a pleasure. Run hard and dive deep. JSR DJD. David James Major Alio! Well, it ' s time for this big city boy to hit the real world and build his way to for- tune. Plebe year proved to be a real challenge as be realized he didn ' t have enough stripes to keep his lady love in- terested, so to vent his frustrations, he joined the rugby team. Knee surgery |1 soon followed. Three slices later still found Butchie leading the ruggers in their revelry. The move to 9 was numbing; and you thought Rubik ' s Cube was bad! Air Force rugby. Fat Pat, underage drinking, Torquay, and the death quiver were highlights of 3 c year. The lona trip cor- rupted a friend, but gained a brother. Maj found Blitz the next year, and thus another project to work on. He also worked on his dancing in Tucson with the biting tree in the parking lot. Senior year saw four different gals and a visit to Hillsboro. How about Stevie Ray? For- tunately, the end was near. Good luck in the Corp and thanks for all the " educa- tion " ! Biz and Bags. John Joseph McKenna I would like to thank my friends for a ter- rific four years. Never have I met a group of people like this. The special bondf that has taken four years to develop is my most precious memory. Without them I never would have made it. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank " use guys " and re- mind you that this is the end of the begin- ning. A special thanks to Peg, my best fiiend and the person I will spend the rest of my life with. I wouldn ' t trade you for the world. To mom and dad, thanks for putting up with me for 23 years. To my mother who has always been there to give me a boost: I want to tell her I love her. To my father I ' ve always wanted to make him proud of me. At graduation, even though he couldn ' t be there physically, I know how he must have felt. I ' ve dedicated my 4 years at the academy to you dad. I wish I had the chance to give you just one more hug and I hope I can be the father that you were to me to my children. Edward Upchurch Miller God ' s Country and the Action Family yielded up its prodigal son; first to NAPS and then to Canoe U. Ted never wasted any time letting his viewpoints be known: especially at the Litz Club where his cam- paign for presidency started, and the M.C. BaK with the table he was to drink Mr. Mei. under. (He and Mr. Jack went under instead.) Ted was successful on many of his himts for affection, the " S-hook " stuck everywhere, even in hard to get places. A tune-up for his machine was always welcome. Spew was a die hard Marine im- til airborne school motivated him for Navy Air. We couldn ' t see Ted jamming in a high and tight anyway. The confirmed bachelor of the the century fell pray to a southern belle, setting a world ' s record on wedding plans. We ' ll always remember his smile, drawl, and Cope. But more impor- tantly his sincerity and love of life will be missed most. Good luck, dude. DOG MAJ. The Brigade: Ninth Company 28i Robert Paul PignaUro Wntini: l ij[ ' » hii»cr«phv rvdumiant.

John realized his calling to Surface Line while spending the summer hanging over the railing and feeding the fish of the Atlantic. As a youngster, John ' s sensitive, non-antagonistic personality led to many a messy confrontation with our neighbors, all in fun of course! Our lovesick puppy was never one to hold onto his freedom or money. After many unsuccessful bouU, he landed Jen, or vice versa. (Suuure it was her first time at the Pen.) Since then John divided his time between Wilson racking with Teddy, and reedin leddurs frum Opio. Take good care of our good fnend Jen, we ' ve served our time.

Tending bar from the passenger seat. Glee-club sponsored debauchery, care packages from girls he ' s never met - it ' s a wonder his parents still recognize their little deformed ducklet. Sure, he still has his stigmas- pinging to classes even as a firstie, studying too hard even though he never had a real major, an inability to grasp basic dance moves, an exponentially-decreasing set of standards regarding members of the opposite sei (the goggles thicken as nuke school draws near.) But hey, some vestiges of social in eptitude are more easily cast off than others All things considered though, the Kent man turned out OK. Best luck in the future. The Chns-man. Christopher Ivan Upham Chris " Ivan the Terrible " Upham is a ladies ' man who hails from Texas. (Steers and Queers, right?) Chris is searching for that special someone to give order {n his life.

He ' s now looking for an interested second class so he can go to . ' i ring dances. Fran still holds a special place in his heart though. When he ' s on the dance floor, anyone within (i feet is in peril of their life. We will remember Chris for: BB Gun and mirror wars (Cut that out Mike ' ), that high pitched luMgh (It wasn ' t that funny). the RiK ' hes (Did you ever hear from them?), pick-up 1 Ball games, and academics (Are you sat finally, Chris?). The plebes and his classmates will remember him well. Chris, that red welder ' s jacket is not in style! Good luck in the fleet, .Smooth seas, etc. RMW. Drew Theron Wasson Like his infinite-loop Genesis tapes, Drew ' s habits seemed to have been created to test the breaking point of his room- mate. After four years of intense training, 1 am sure Drew is ready for the Olympics in the rack endurance event. 1 guess 1 was just jealous that he could graduate with distinction without ever seeming to open a book, but he always drove me crazy when he would get so bored that he would do crossword puzzles until one in the nuTn ing. However, no matter how much 1 tun plain about his annoying idiosyncrasu-s. I will forever remember I rew as a fnend when 1 really needed one (who else would lend me three hundred dollars without a question). He was always there with an understanding ear and a few encouraging words. Beat of all, I could always hit nim up for a free Pepsi when i ran out of change. BEK. 290 The Brigade: Ninth Company Matthew Thomas Sampson Matty came to USNA as a SOT. in the U.S. Marine Corps having a superior knowledge of rock apes. After four years at Canoe U., his former high-and-tights be- came regular haircuts and he learned to tolerate the Navy. Matt was nearly en- gaged upon his arrival, but ejected after being driven to the brink of insanity. This was appropriate for the future Marine pi- lot. Flip juice, action family, and 7-11 were good-times we ' ll remember. Not to men- tion Mollys. URl, Numbni House, babysit- ting, the Marine Corps Ball, and ankles. The " hog " was an added feature to his stone image. But how he was infected with his hall romances, I ' ll never know? Lonnie is a good maid and a great friend- 150 ' s made him hard to live with, but who ' s perfect? Good luck with that special some- w Wj one and leave some pieces intact. I wish I the best. E.U. MAJ. John Beauregard Slaughter John came to USNA from sunny Daytona Beach to spread his social wealth and ge- nius. He was involved in many activities, including the scuba, flying, and power- lifting clubs. Socially, John and I will re- member road trips to Delaware, Florida, and Washington State. John, being the worldly individual he is, was a political science major. Although he had little spare time due to studying and other activities, he often delved into the field of astrology. In fact, he was the first to spot the three moons of Jupiter during Spring Break ' 86. Affectionately known as the Slaughter- house or Sarge, John had a total of three roommates at USNA. Two found new ca- reers in CIVLANT before graduation. John has fond memories of the days they spent together in Smoke Hall. 1 hope paths cross again, John. With your dil- igence, I ' m sure you will be a success in any endeavor. DBW. Stephen Howard Tackett When Steve was a piebe, he was ranked 37 of 39 in his company. Since that time he has really blossomed into an outstanding performer as he is ranked in the top 50 of the class, wears stars, and is a beacon of professionalism. But things weren ' t all bad for Steve plebe year. That ' s the year he met Christ and has since been working diligently on cultivating his life as a Chris- tian. Steve has been very involved with the Navigators and has grown much through that organization despite his aversion to- ward O-dark-30 meeting times. Steve has proven to be a very easy-to-get-along-with roommate, patiently enduring unlimited abuse from many of us (mostly DBW). Steve has also had the moral courage to break free of his stereotypic " nuc " looks, choosing Navy air instead of subs. Steve is a trustworthy friend and we wish him the best. God Bless Steve, and always remem- ber 3 John 2:8. t: Michael Scott Weiner Screws fall out . . . the world is ar perfect place. Dennis Bryan White D.B. made his debut into the Annapolis scene from the all-natural Pacific North- west city of Vancouver, Washington. Be- ing clueless in such subjects as Calculus, he reached deep within himself and tapped that remarkable innate ability of being able to quickly master a subject new to him almost instantaneously — an ability which saw him through plebe year much more unscathed than the rest of us. Po- tentially a track stud, he opted for stardom with Ninth Company basketball and foot- ball. At first seemingly inhibited socially due to a transcontinental relationship, he soon broke the mold, disproving the Cuber accusations, the Mech fc. syndrome, and established himself as a true party animal, though we are still concerned about his ijubblehead future. As a fair, yet tough, 2- striper, he always was willing to help oth- ers less gifted than himself. May you for- ever have fair winds and following seas my dear friend and roomate. JBS. Richard Mahone Witten Ever since, it ' s been dov nhill for Rich. Maximizing his eating, sleeping and drink- ing with Garfield-like apaihy. Rich man- aged nevertheless to give a respectable showing morally, mentally, and physically. Also, he ' s probably the nicest, most well- mannered, easy-going guy you ' ve ever met. (OK, so we ' re taking some liberties with honor here, but what the heck.) His ap- proach to academics was anything but se- rious. (Well rested, well tested, right?) Study hour consisted of TV, rack and a dart game thrown in for good measure. All in all, the random pencil roll technique served him pretty well. True, other aspects of life at the academy didn ' t leave Rich quite so unscathed. Somebody needs to tell this guy what the term credit limit means. Rich, the great American Consum- er, the leader of the fringe element (according to Q-bert), and all that. May your life and career be as long and full as your credit card statement. CIU.

Second class year showed his impeccable taste in clothing, hair styles and other apparel. Nice earring. He also met many new friends this year. There was Ralph. Gordon, and his buddy the fire extinguisher, who he met after the Rugby banquet. But let ' s not forget the old trusty automatic teller. His final year was centered around a few beers out in town and his many good flings. Watch out for those cold bathroom floors.

Darrin Michael Grover The Academy sure wasn ' t quite the same after Mike entered the scene. Hailing from Lawton, Oklahoma via NucPwrScn and NAPS. Mike soon found that he had a knack for beating the system while still ending up smelling like a rose. After over- coming such obstacles as Crisco (and the Bat) plebe year. Mike finally reached the freedom of youngster year, but kept his dating confined to the yard (i.e. Buchanan House) for a while. StUl a Systems Major at heart, during second class year, he was also surprised to find that he really could get good grades. But after wowing all with his Silent Drill routines. Mike turned his sense of humor(?) to WRNV and ended up with the " most-coveted " show on the air. (Right. Mike?). To know Mike is to know that he is the kind of man the Academy was made to produce: witty, intelligent, confident and career-oriented — a man whose loyal friendship will certainly be treasured by all. Good Luck, Grover! DAJ. Brian Elliott Haley Bri and Chuckles were a real trip to live with, you know the old adage . . . nice place to visit, etc. Between his bike and being a bull major (He was bull-headed too), we had ample tidbits to debate.

Dean and his Walkman demerits descend- ed upon the perfect company. His affec- tion for fire crackers soon meant more demerits; luckily, the Trojan incident didn ' t blow up in the mail or he ' d still be on restriction. The lird Lts. at Quantico will not soon forget him. but then again neither will the officers at Pensacola. His face was beet red that whole summer, and it wasn ' t because of the sun. During the fall of his first class year. Dean met Rober- ta and we haven ' t seen him since. Ob- viously they have spent some time here at Navy, judging by tne ( ' hiquit« sticker on his nameplate. Ahhh SHdanaga! Best of luck in Pensacola. Dean, and don ' t ever fly with any pogues. PT.

Though he was nKH dy. he was often found going out of his way for his close friends. He became a published author — g M d for a bull major! But his crowning achievement was becoming the Head manager of the Football Team — a job few knew h )w well he did or how much he cared. He also rooted for the O ' s. Caps, and Skins despite our best efforts. Later dude — your presence will be missed by those who knew you best. M LC. I oiuscoi Robert Allen Lyon The Stork: Rob Lyon is a native Cali- fornian from Sacramento. He came to the Naval Academy to play baseball and thai is just what he did. The baseball team used this Californian ' s natural talents as a pitcher for three strong years. The team is also where Rob picked up his illustrious nickname, Stork. The Stork was a two- time letterman in baseball. These were not his only achievements. He is an electrical enginnering major who has flirted with the top hundred his whole time at USNA. He has been choosen into the Nuclear Power program and we are all sure he will have a great career. Thomas Hugh Macrae Tommy is at his best in a crowded party. He loves to be the center of attention, and thus is always willing to strip down to his multi-colored boxers. Undoubtedly, his fa- vorite party location is the Thrift Inn (room — ask for Macrae at the desk) where he can unabashedly cast his drink on the wall to the tune of Gilligan ' s Island. " Irish " loves water, whether surfing, swimming, sailboarding, or taking pictures of sunsets and rocky beaches. The Bahamas. Antigua. Florida, Mexico. Ca- lifornia, Virginia Beach, and the Ocean Cities of Maryland and New Jersey have been the playground for this Jimmy Buffet fan. (Oh! Chestertown and St. Elizabeth ' s College, too.) But. one voyage to Singa- pore and one ver ' special woman later, Tom has almost reached the top of Mas- low ' s ladder. He is one of those few people that you think about and smile, that change your life. Tom: " Ne te quaesiveris extra " (Emerson) Do not seek yourself outside of yourself. DVW.

Rooming with Ed for four years. I have shaped him in my likeness; sweet as cherry pie and as wi ' ld as Friday night. Who could ever forget that red light in B-more. or his floor routine after a bottle of rum. I should have known then that he was going to be gymnastics captain. Plebe year was a breeze for Ed after he de- veloped quality study habits, i.e. typing all-nighters. The following year saw the beginning of the provocation wars and the no-win scenerio. Ed realized then never to bring a sandwich up from lunch. The next year was great for Ed, he " rapped-up " a fme gymnastics season among other things. Senior year meant for Ed legal age. red " lude " and Wall Street clothes, what else need be said- Many thanks Eddie, you ' re the greatest. Okay! you got the last laugh. Call me in 2003. JRL. Thomas Arthur McKenna Out of the New England woods and into the real world stepped " Killer " McKenna four years ago. He charged into Mother B. with bugle blowing, instantly setting a place for himself in the D B. Never a challenge di i he fail to meet head on. and plebes feared his presence. Then one day he came face to face with the Florida ' Cane and alas his campaign was pacified, how- ever, his bugle blowing earned him three out-of-company stripes first class year. But woe the man who steps in front of " Killer " as he rides the waves through scuba school, airborne training, and the SWO community, hopefully right smack into BUD S.

His plebe year calculus grade left a lot of unanswered questions concerning his math SAT score. I don ' t know which was worse, Kaplan or the black plague? Later that year he knocked the bottom out of a knockabout. Due to the mild Annapolis weather Pete had to travel to Maine to see an actual snowstorm. Youngster year Pete realized his athletic prowess by making first team All-America in pistol. Pete was also well- liked in his company- He once even mailed his raingear to a plebette in need. He was offered a full ride at Texas A M, which he considered to the point of making several visitations, but finally he turned it down. Pete faced a dilemma at service selection because he passes out at the control of small planes — what a night that was. Good luck in Pensacola, Pete. DB PR JH KV. Jeffrey Lofton Valmus Jeff Valmus came to USNA from Brendon, Florida, and he is a true Flor- dian. Like all Floridians, he believes eve- rything from Florida is great. Jeff is a rnulti-talented athlete who tried his hand at manv sports at USNA. He had a couple of stints with the golf team and was very strong in the bowling league. Jeff also tried his hand in a few different companies but found a nice little niche in 10th Company. Jeff has done well academically at the Academy, at least well enough to learn what life under the water is all about. The sad part is that such a life will separate him from Cathline. who we all know has a special place in his heart. Siegfried Roland Wulff Plebe vear. Ziggy had his sights set on the Marine Corps, but he got along with their hair regs about as good as he got along with Don. That year he also became ac- quainted with the medicinal qualities of Lvsol — OUCH! Youngster year began with a few good experiments in psychology on his roommate. Brian has yet to find his mind, much less his sheets and term pa- per. His favorite pastimes were Rugby, drinking, sleeping, giris, and standing re- striction as a result of these. He also en- joyed lifting weights at the Scenic Over- look, and how about that bleacher creature? Sometimes he was just so DAMM stupid. Zig however, was always there when you needed something, like an ID card or a few beers if you were a plebe. We wish Ziggy good luck with Navy Air; he will finally be able to outrun the State Troopers. Take care of yourself, we won ' t always be there to keep you out of trouble. JSA.

Al has survived the program nonetheless, meltint; only a few resistors and KK lab desks on the way. His life was changed, however, when he met his wife-to-be second class year and decided lo move out of Maury and into Baltimore. Those of us who had the pleasure of really knowing Al can say that he truly cared about all he did and stood for. and we wish he and Manellen the best of luck and all success in their life together.

Alice in Wonderland James Carlton Childs James iChilos) left the sU.pes of New Hampshire and came to USNA with his eyes on an F-1-4 and wings of gold. He quickly made friends and rose to be the " creme de la creme. " Yt)ungster year saw the satisfied bachelor return from Christ- mas leave a one-woman man. but who wouldn ' t have fallen for such a sweet girl? Second class year saw the death of his most prized Solomon T-shirt. As a first class. James discovered that his eyes didn ' t have the right stuff. He decided on the silent service, and soon found that talking to bankers about mutual funds was more lucrative than talking to " egos " with your hands. A Shakespeare-spouting math major who was always king of company racquet sports, he had a short fuse at times, but was always the best of friends. W e will miss his humor and his good na- ture and we wish him the greatest suc- cesses. CRS. John Hugh Fickle John came to us from KIkhart. Indiana and can best be described, in his own words from youngster year, as a mutant. Never one to do things in the same man- ner as others, John ' s greatest studying technique was the " rack-on-it " method — the little known method of throwing your books on your rack and having the rack study for you. It must work since John wore stars during first class year. Academics was not the only thing John did differently. In athletics John was playing heavyweight football and plebe year crew, he demonstrating his love for the contact sports or tht se which are just messed up. If he did not get his way on the playing field. John would just re- double his effort and apply the " Fickle force-it " method. In his social life, John could party and abuse people with the best of them and demonstrated it often. He enriched all our lives and will be a great addition to the submarine force. Live Long and Prosper, John DLS. Kirklin Cathedris Fletcher I came here thinking that it would be a cool place to hang nut for four years. As it turned out. it was not quite that cool. I did. however, acquire knowledge and discipline that I probably would not have found any- where else. Thoughts of becoming an of- ficer did cross my mind every now and then, but I was not sure as to what type I should be. Now. only four months awav tr(tm The Basic School. I am sure that I will be a fine officer, despite what some people think. I spend my free time, what little I have, talking to the ladies and mix- ing all types of crazy music together. These activities even keep me sane during times of anxiety and depression. I will continue to mix songs together as Icing as there are songs to mix, and talk to the ladies as long as there are ladies to talk Uy. I think I may even continue to be a marine as long as there is a Marine Corps to be in. Lee Anne Lambert Through the years at the Academy, through all the trials and regulations (EN.EE.reg PE gear) " the Kid " discovered the true meaning of First Class year (the rack by 9) despite a heavy academic load (English) and " Bend-Over Buddy. " " The Kid " almost left this great institution of higher learning youngster year, but she made the right (?) decision and graduation is finally here. Along the way she managed to earn a brown belt in Judo along with her jump wings and. let ' s not forget, the mas- terful completion of EE 622. That was Second Class year. Receiving her MRS degree, a total surprise to everyone, she was ready to face her final battle with the alarm clock First Class year (will it survive the trauma of the wall?) Yes, three years have passed, a time in which I have come to know " my roomie " better than perhaps even she realizes. Yes, the Corps is getting one heck of an officer. Always have faith. I Lee, always go for the gold. Frederick Latrash Narrowly escaping a perilous childhood in the jungle of Brasil, Fred " Pepe " Latrash took sanctuary at USNA.

After a year with the " real Navy " , Dave checked into II as the company lonesome cowboy. Youngster year. Dave realized KK wasn ' t enough of a challenge and asked the AC board if he could switch to Phy. Sci. This is when Dave developed his 9mm and Harley Davidson fetishes. However, by the end of second class year, things were looking up. He returned from Savannah in the Blue Devil, which l ecame the Pub ' s traveling gun shop and liquor store. First class year brought many new and exciting changes. After sleeping on the lawn of the Tri Delta house at Cornell, Dave managed to win the heart of Nancy (a KK) " ; yankee) in the midst of some pretty stiff competition. After which, Dave made many high speed and heuvilv armed trips to Ithaca and towns in between.

He was always pretty quiet and to himself in the Hall, but when it came to meeting women this Puerto Rican Casanova had no problems. The impossible did finally happen during his final year by the bay. He fell in love with Rita, and wedding bells rang. Rita probably isn ' t aware of what a good jumper C ' los is. but if she says " Zengotita jump a little higher! " , she will find out. Site also probably doesn ' t know that he used to be the lead barber at the 7- 1 barber shop Plebe year. Of course he didn ' t cut hair for nothing, he did march tours for everyone ' s hair he cut. Carlos had the aspiration to FLY NAV ' and be a P-3 Jock, and his dream came one step closer Service Selection Night. Hopefully he will drive those birds better than he does his Volkswagon. All kidding aside. Carlos has been a great friend and a fun person. I wish him all the best. KRB. Christopher Robert Schenck Chris Schenck. or the " Shanker. " as he is affectionately called by those who have had the dubious honor of playing squash and basketball with him. sauntered into Canoe U. one fateful summer day in ' 83 leaving Rutgers and southern Joisey be- hind. Little did he know of the soaring heights of magnificence he would achieve in his brief but fun-filled tenure. There was, however, one small detail that he did know, unequivocally and without ques- tion: he was going to be a fighter jock even if he had to sleep constantly to avoid straining his eyes. In fact. Chris could be seen many an afternoon dreaming about the wild blue in his rack, always face down to keep the eyes moist, while his books lay ever waiting and lonely on his neglected desk. Chris ' openness and unflagging de- votion to everything he believes in has made him a friend to all. second to none. We wish Chris and Beth all the good times and success they so richly deserve. JCC. David Lee Schiffman Shifty came to us from the great state of California. His home was the port of San Diego, where he first fell in love with the sea and surface combatants. Of course he was slight of build when he arrived at USNA. This came from his avid love of tennis. By the end of a very tough plebe summer. Dave was reduced to a meager 120 pounds. Not to be undaunted by this setback. Dave quickly applied himself to his eating. He perfected the art of ob- taining seconds in King Hall. His system included several chiefs and wardroom workers, who were always ready to provide Dave with the extra calories needed to be a proper SWO daddy. The resulting gain also provided Shifty with more friends, those that worked in the repair tailor shop. Dave definitely made these individuals earn their wages as he often brought down pants to be let out. In the end his hard training paid off as he selected SWO and even got to return to San Diego. JT JF. James Gordon S chmitt " And a rock never gets small! " Coming from high school. Jim quickly adapted to life as a history major. After the D B drinking fry. he discovered the " Four years together bv the bay " weren ' t going to live up to the time in ' 69 when the Mets went all the way. Handing papers in 3 weeks late, he turned to the Talisman to substitute for thinking sessions under the big tree. With the discovery of Bingham- ton. he ventured into the world of women and alcohol and the sink would often be filled with his dinner. Having survived the USNA laundp, ' svstem. the future Pinoch- le King will have no problems on the USS Vreeland after he learns to like black cof- fee, puts on 30 pounds and becomes a chain smoker. Whatever happens in the future, Jim will he sure to return to Farm- ingdale, LI. for the annual Turkey Bowl and to resume his competition with Corky . We wish him luck. JKM.

Thomas Raymond Belesimo " Bullelhend " came to USNA b- ■ North Babylon. New York, and a close knil family that followed his successes with proud admiration. An accomplished g ' mnast. he devoted long hours to prac- tice, perfecting the routines ihat he ex- ecuted with what seemed to be effortless skill. Despite his near fatal crash youngster year. Tommy finished out his second and first class years competing for Navy. Adventurous and unpredictable, we never knew what Tommy was up to next. After his rhrislmns visit to Israel, we learned to expect just about anything from the mid with the psychotic laugh. But while he loved to do the unexpected, and make you wonder what was next. ' Tommy will be remembered above all as a dear friend who worked for the things he believed in He shared his successes and triumphs with family, fnends, and his Lord. RCS.

Gregory Vidanya Contaoi Greg, a native Californian, came to USNA only to find that Annapolis is not as sunny as the West Coast He lost his tan, but ad- justed quickK ' and excelled during his next four years. Greg contributes his top 100 status to Fnday night hearts, his powerful 2 watt stereo system and weekly excur- sions to Philly. But sen iusly, Greg ' s achievements are Impressive: a major in systems engineenng, a minor in German. YP skipper, winner of the ghetto lottery. NAVTAG genius, bngade handball cham- pion and company subcommander. A true outdiwraman, he survived rattlesnakes and marauding bear at the Philmont Scout Ranch to represent USNA on his summer leave. Greg loves cold weather camping abstilute zero seems t« be his ultimate goal. His car may not be a Por»che but it is equip[ ed with a panic button. With his ambition, fjreg will make an excellent SWO daddy DRM. Marc Henry Dalton Accepted to almost ery major college. Marc chose the Academy to pursue his unlimited potential. He still thumbs through acceptance letters, wondering what if . . . .Just another presidential pup- py! Then again, he ' s not " just another " anything. From the beginning, this Navy brat was oul to prove he had something to offer. He blew through Systems and added some stripes for a challenge. Don ' t let him fool you - ' neath the gold and glitter is an ordinary .Joe out to kick a little butt, his own way. .Skiing a double-diamond or pur- suing nubile young lasses, the competitive streak rings loud and strong. You won ' t find him here on a weekend too much out there to conquer. He ' s l een set back, but he ' ll never admit it. which makes Marc Marc. It ' s scary to think about him with a nuke command, but I ' m sure we ' ll read about It. To the old limes, buddy . . . girls with intellect, mogul fields, compnimise. no friction. A great friend, tear it up! WH. Robert Scott Dietz Bob came to Annapolis from Madison, Wisconsin. He wasted no time in making himself known around Hubbard Hall and proved an unexpected gift to Coach breyfiis. Sophomore year began with a championship at the Head of the .Schuylkill, and the beginning of a major in math. " No papers, no labs - that ' s the major for me. " By this time it was obvious that Bob ' s accent was in no danger of eradication, and his nicknames blos- somed. " Blob. " " Coach. " and " Ditz " are just a few of his many aliases. -lunior year Bob ran as usual and took up biking. He also took up seeing a girl in Baltimore, and for never having enough time to spend there, he spent an awful lot of time there. Senior year culminated in a lot of hard work and harder play. Nuke School looked good, and Bob. as always, did what he said he would never do. As a veteran of many adventures with Bob and many Army- Navy games, 1 will miss him. A great guy and a fine friend, I wish him. as everybody does, only the best. STC. 318 The Hrigade: Twelfth Company Kirk Raymond Benson Kirk arrived at Canoe U. from California and ended up in Sweet 16. After a grueling plebe year. Kirk " transferred " to the Dirty Dozen where he found Hfe to be far dif- ferent. Kirk made his first impression in 12th by spooning all the plebes the first day back. He soon realized that he hadn ' t had a real plebe year, although our first class made sure our third class year made up for any of our shortcomings. Kirk earned the honor of being the first of our classmates in the company to get engaged. Shortly thereafter he earned the honor of being the first to call off an engagement. Kirk was always extremely professional, so much so that he took the PCR 5 times. Service selection proved to be a difficult time for Kirk, especially since a coin has only two sides. Kirk is a great guy and a true friend. You will do well in whatever you do. Mabu Hai, Ensign Benson. PE. David Lee Bragg Dave arrived at USNA straight from the uncharted reaches of West Virginia, fascinated by such things as indoor plum- bing and electricity. After an initiation in 23rd Company, Wiener had his real plebe year in 12th Company, thanks to Dan and JJ. A masochistic semester as an EE con- vinced him that his future lay elsewhere, namely, in front of a computer screen at three in the morning. The next two years Dave devoted to an intense study of the Blue Magnet and its effects on mid- shipmen. The findings of this study earned Spaz the " Rack King " crown despite intense competition from Holmes. Dave woke up long enough to collect his nuke power bonus and make his predes- tined choice of submarines. With his training we know he will succeed in a world without Hght. We wish him the best ofluck. MRB. Mark Robert Broshkevitch Mark arrived at USNA on his eighteenth birthday with an impressionable mind and an extremely short girlfriend. Beaker sur- vived a " real " plebe year in Serene Eigh- teen by keeping a low profile and avoiding Chuck Smith and Haaable. The scramble left him in 12th Company, where, thanks to Folsom, the still unexplained legacy of the " Holmes " began. Second class year Mark took a vacation to Colorado where his mind was poisoned by the Zoomies and he escaped the grip of the Short One. Holmes returned to USNA with a cadet girlfriend and thoughts of a career in the Air Force until the trauma of a semester with Daltoid brought him back to reality. Plebe detail was endured with the help of Fast Eddie and afternoon golf. Spaz and Holmes were the rack twins first semester but were broken up when Holmes became Batt Cdr for the home stretch. He got his pilot slot and headed to P-Cola with Fast Eddie and Philburt. We wish him the best ofluck. WiUiam Declan Byrne, Jr. Thanks, Mom and Dad. I love you both. Thanks Jo- Ann, John, Tom, and Shannon for pushing me. Thanks to ALD. Bueno, CJ, Chud, Beave. and Mike for pulling me through. Thanks to Mo, Ed, Lar, and Char for still liking me after all those intercep- tions. Well, I fooled them all, and I finally made it! I ' m history . . . see va, meat! WDB.Jr. Paul Edward Espinosa Paul started his illustrious career in 4th Company. It was there that he earned his first nickname, Bilginosa. Moving into the 12th Company, he received a chance to redeem himself. It was soon found that his nickname was not appropriate; he became known as a " plebe ' s best friend. " In fact, Paul looked out for others so much that as a squad leader, he lost an entire night of sleep because he had to rank one of his squadmates last. Regardless of the per- sonality that Paul projected, his innocent aura was far from truthful. After receiving his first 5000 series offense as a youngster for drinking on watch, those lonely days of restriction taught Paul a valuable lesson, don ' t get caught! Once he acquired the art. he escaped close calls such as driving in the yard on liberty in civies as an underclass. We ' re all happy you got your service selection; you deserve it. Best of luck always. Thanks for always lending an ear. ETK. Olin Oscar Filyaw Picture a 208-lb. mountain of marine potential coming to USNA. The result: a 175 lb. twisted individual at graduation. Each morning would find OTiie bright- eyed{?) and bushy-tailed{?), an optimist in the truest sense(?). Take a look at dis! Doling! His taunting of poor Bagel, his gracious gifts to lady friends (lamps?), and his amazing driving ability have marked his senior year. Always a social butterfly, this year he even let JJ, Dan, and me go out with him sometimes. Through many hours of practice, he perfected the sleeping art form (SLUG!). From the rack, his leadership carried the company basketball team to Brigade Championship. His com- mitment to excellence is even reflected in his choice of roommates, P.O.S. and Bagel (where professionalism is the norm). The question — does OIlie enjoy anything? The answer — yes, anything that keeps his olin happy. I must admit, it has been a blast. It ' s finally over, imagine that. SCG. David Robert Folsom After four years, six roomies, two and a half million meters, hundreds of 0545 practices, four girlfriends. 144 semester hours, two cars, one short haircut, 30 days of restriction, one perpetually over- extended Master Card, and one great love for the rack — this had better be it. I guess, in the end. nothing here was im- possible, only maturity-stunting. I ' ve met some life-long friends here, but also a few people who deserve to be tossed off the Bay Bridge — in pieces. I don ' t think I ' ll be one of those grads who comes back, giv- ing advice and talking about " the good old days. " Rather, I ' ll be on the beach, if I ' m lucky. I ' ve got to catch up on all the social- ly destructive behavior I had to abandon when I came here. The Corps better understand. Thanks Hadji and the Smith Effect, for the first year; Stumpy and Philbert. for the second; and the Bear, for the last two. Couldn ' t have done it without you guys. Stephen Chamy Garrett Spoonie was unlike any other. There was the trip to NYC (expensive, yes — pleasurable, no!). The avid love affair with his alarm. (So how did you like shoveling snow?) And what ' s a year without great roommates! Mustn ' t forget the REM con- cert ($13.50 for a few hours of sleep). Whether attending an opera at the Ken- nedy Center, buying a beer at the corner, or, for that matter, purchasing a cheeseburger at McDonald ' s. Spoonie just never had auite enough money. And who would wonder why? With a wardrobe to out-do any trend-setter — his search was for the perfect moment of bliss. You see. Spoonie ' s dates were special, and his bank account usually reflected it. They started with initial investments that would have made Rockerfeller ' s mouth water, but end- ed in total economic deprivation (ab- solutely no gain, monetary or otherwise). $$ flashed in Steve ' s eyes when he choose nuke. As you set off for Florida, the boys wish you luck. OOF. The Brigade: Twelfth Company J. J.l r 10.000 pnrtuli brr •1. b.

Andrew Gregory Pray Greg left the suniw climate of Florida to come Ui USNA. Freshman year he was U) 6 that he would " never graduate " without some altitude adjustment. The adiuslment never took place, yet today he is headed back 1 Florida to become a sur- face nuke. Command in five? During his tenure at Annapolis, Greg developed an infatuation for the game of golf. He also set out on a " One Way " quest for legen- dary abs. Spending most of his weekoays on the golf course or in the weight room left little time for studies. Fortunately his membership in the Ocean Engineering Brotherhwxl enabled him U) keep a 2.7 cum and long weekends. Priorities chang- ed senior year when he discovered his " Guardian Angel " The Commandant will be remembered for trend setting haircula (lack oO, King Dance " shrapnel " (cm my back), (Jas Wars, Correlation, study hour golf games, permanent MIK status, and his laid back attitude Hrst of Luck! .JHL.

I ' n- fortunately, he began in the Bufu Com- pany (22). After sur iving his " intense " ' plebe year, he was moved to the illustrious 12th Company. Throughout Tim ' s stay, he has always been able to follow the regs — his own! He has always been able to ra- tionalize his actions by stating the obvious — ' it ' s just a concept. " Tim has always managed to pull the short straw for room- mates. His luck began youngster year, a fun-filled semester with the infamous Chocolate Daddy. His luck has since con- tinued, but he was always able to cope. Tim showed his h ' pocritical side when he bought his new car. First he said he could not understand how people could spend so much money on " just a car. " Then, out of the blue one weekend he returned in his brand new Porsche, Tim has always been generous with his time and belongings. We all wish him luck and the best in Hawaii. JDH. Joseph Michael Lara Living m the bosom of Northern Cali- fornia, only C.od knows why the Bear chose the East coast . Pappa Bear ( ' 61) and Jimbo ( ' 84) made it through the place called Annapolis, so Bear thought he could do it. A three year stint with the swim team helped pass the time away. New friends, nicknames, and unique travels re- sulted. Second class year, the Doctor called, and together, they found joy in the many " Good Navy Deals " that came their way. After being associated with the many geeks in his major, having one scooter as a CO. and a coach whose initials are LZB. Bear struck it rich at Senice Selection night. He chose the mightv combat unit known as CEC (NPQ). He ' s off to Ca- lifornia and possibly CIVLANT in 92. As for the Navy, the Bear ' s going to be the " one that got away. " Once again, the Na- val Academy gets shutout by a LARA. DRF. To paraphase Clarence. I was just " putting in time. " Thanks. Mom and Dad. JML. John Hugo Loesch John arrived at USNA from a small, Mayberr - RFD town in Pennsylvania after a year vacation at NAPS. His membership in the Ocean Engineering Brotherhood allowed plenty of time for golf and hoops. As company B-ball coach, " Rambis " took honors as " Coach of the Year " (undefeated in the U.S. and Canada). Loescher achieved a high class standing with minimal effort and max- imum recreation. The tailgating footbail seasons were well spent with the ' rents. Dr. A. Bubba, and the Tortugas. John fought off the nukes and their bribes for the less painful route — SWO man. John will be remembered for his " Screamin ' TURBO Volare, " relatives in high places, basketball roadtrips. Ocean City weekends. Ft. Lauderdale with Choco- late and Bagel, study hour golf games. Gas Wars, and 2 c Vice Club. John will now pack his ' vette and head for San Diego, where he will room with Roy Boy. I hope that you, too, will get command in five. Best of luck! AGP, RRL. Douglas Ray Masters Doug, better known as " Dougie Fresh, " came north to I ' SNA from Jacksonville. If I didn ' t know better. I ' d swear he ' d lived in a hole in the ground because he kept the room rigged for maximum sleeping com- fort. Despite his affinity for the rack, he made several significant achievements in- cluding moving up to general engineering and being a brigade handball and basket- ball champion. Doug excelled at darts. Nerf hoops and sleeping through reveille. He also had a love affair with the weight room and the golf course. Despite his com- plaints about the room ' s sound system, he never coughed up any dough for a better one. Doug is making progress, though, by studying personal finance. His biggest dream is to save enough money to buy his girlfriend an engagement ring. Doug was almost a Marine but chose SWO after ser- vice selection was postponed. Luckily, he hadn ' t visited the barbershop early. God- speed. GVC. John Daniel Stevenson An unlucky draw landed John with Bob and I as rcK)mmates for our final year at USNA. The Cleveland-born mediator could turn any discussion into a fist-fight and make decisions at the drop of a hat (or the toss of a coin). I ' m sure he won ' t regret the toss that decided Marine Corps for him. His buddies Rock and Sluggo will help him make Quantico seem like run- ning from Jimmylegs — a past-time that rated up there with girls, beer, and greased lightning. I hear they ' re serious about room formals at HQMC. so get in before 4 AM to wax. Best of luck always, and thanks. JAO. Chad Owen VanHulzen The Mountain Man from the Great W hite North quietly conquered this place and now returns to the den. where Kay pa- tiently awaits. After four years of passive resistance Chad finally threw in the towel. We all love Kay, but can she cook ... in mass quantities? A gentle giant off the field, a defensive stalwart on, 85 owned the defensive line. This Nordic Viking, chiselled from stone, enters the Marine Corps, avoiding a float like the plague. It ' s about time you loosen your grip on those chow packages, especially those HoHos you were supposed to share with us. With your gung ho attitude and burning desire to excel you ' ll be a great leader. Chad . . . just don ' t lose your vertical hold. MLS. WDB. David Brian Wertman The road from Fox River Grove. Illinois is a long one. but Brian ' s peppy little Omni makes it in a flash — just ask him. Plebe year saw him become immersed in D B where he has remained the heart, soul, and foundation of the Corps. Youngster year with JJ and DB resulted in his " dropping " from ESE to EME. but that has been his only short-coming since that July after- noon long ago (and it never stopped DB from using his gouge). Peewee has been a stronghold of each year ' s musical and the Brass Choir. Dubbed " Photon-man, " this never-tiring bundle of energy always found time to do things no one else would. Sub- marines are his destiny; he had to find something to keep him busy which paid well enough to afford that baby grand he wants so badly. If his track record is any indication. ADM McKee should start cleaning out his drawers. He ' s truly been an example to us all. I wish him the best of everything — he deserves nothing less. KLC.

Jorge Antonio Esparza Jorge is the new standard from which all men will be judged. It must l e noted that he has not always been the pillar of profes- sionalism. I first realized the potential im- pact he would have at USNA by observing the intimate relationship he shared with the Admin Conduct System plebe year. Youngster year, unlike plebe year, prom- ised Jorge a future at Na ' v. From the bar- racks of 22nd to Spanish Harlem of KUh. Jorge became a peri)etual i hject of atten- tion after his debut performance at Maria ' s party (I wonder what would have happened if Tracy had l een there?). Being the tNpe to outdo himself, his next adven- ture was to Pottsville to perform his SDB Caper. As XO to CINCRUPIM. Jorge. earned his title as the Major of Marines and the Satisfier of Women. This title characterizes the heart of this man fn m Santa Ana. California, (lood Luck! OCK. 330 Th«- FtriKHdc: Thirtrenlh Company Sean Christian Carroll Sean, following in big brother ' s footsteps. came to USNA to fly. In the meantime this Greenwich. Connecticut vuppie spent his time sailing and partving. As the sail- ing team captain he won many races, spent many hours on the water, and yet always found time to take his company of- ficer sailing. While most guys try and fail with the ladies Sean never tried but always succeeded. However, devotion to Libbie always kept him true to her. Sean takes pride in all he does yet we still can ' t figure out what ' s more important keeping his boat afloat or his prized BMW on the road. As Sean heads off to Pensacola his drive, determination and loyalty will give the Navy a truly great pilot and the world a great person. Dover. James Joseph Collins Jim came to Thirteen with only his Boston accent, and he left U.S.N. A. short one friend. Jim ' s primary academic goal was to make his six semesters as a physical scientist as difficult as possible. His ability to rack through class was un- surpassed, as was his ability to stay up all night. We ' ll always remember those black mornings when it took the Flopper to gel him out of the rack. Jim has two quaHties we will forever value, his gullibility, (How about those Dahlgren girls from Baltimore!) and his willingness to do anything for a friend. Jim will soon be br- inging his stud body and good cheer to the U.S.S. Bowen. Please remember Jim, the CO ' s favorite drink is not ship-on-the- rocks. Good Luck. DRS, TMI. and Flopper. George Frederick Cox George arrived at USNA from humble beginnings in blue-collar. Piedmont, California. Never concerned about money, grades, or officers, this engineer with a bull-major ' s mind could offer advice on pro knowledge. NAVTAG, cars, or any other topic; it was the listener ' s job to sort out the answer. For a car he couldn ' t decide between the sporty Senlra or the sluggish Lamborghini, so he picked the Sentra {it attracted the the female mids ' eyes). His motto for exams: " well rested, well rested " . Study hour consisted of com- puter board war games, long phone con- versations, and a lot of television. George ' s friendliness and intellect will carry him far beyond USNA ' s gates, because George will always be there for us and vice versa. Sur- face line watch out! JPG. Jeffrey Conrad Crymes Jeff came to the Academy determined to be a naval aviator. There was never a doubt that he would be anything else. He wasn ' t your normal Aero Engineer, opting for weekends at Fran ' s rather than Nimitz Library. But that doesn ' t mean he didn ' t pull a number of all-nighters. It will never be said that Jeff was a lightweight when it came to drinking. Despite this he did have his great moments, like when he woke up in somebody ' s bed on 7-1 or when he walk- ed Bancroft aimlessly in half a uniform. J.C. also had trouble oversleeping. I don ' t know how many times we missed quarters youngster year, also when he woke up 10 minutes late for the Army marchover. All ' n all Jeff is one of the greatest people I know and a great friend. CSD. liiEipim JL ? j»il i .Cl« ' ' David Alan Fennell The script about Ock is that he came to Navy from Columbia, Maryland via NAPS and landed in 23 for plebe year. With the " Q " in command and Bo Bo and the Tall One at the con. he left 23rd with an in- grained knowledge of the Rules of Engage- ment. After all the cards were dealt, he found himself in 13th Company ' s Spanish Harlem. It was in 13lh where he first in- itiated his policy of " maintenance. " As a result his grades t iok a big hit and he turned to Mick Jagger for guidance. He soon implemented his Hammer of God theory and assumed his first command as CINCRUP 13 and after a reassignment of orders, claimed himself Supreme Allied Commander of CINCPAT 13. Most noted for his participation in 3rd Battalion Squash and his youngster grease, his home team wishes him luck and hopes that he won ' t get lost on the fairways of Quantico. James Paul Gfrerer Lake Wobegon ' s loss was the Marine Corps ' gain when Jimbo came to USNA. Life with Jim was a veritable zestfest filled with tank tactics and phone calls with the ranking officers of the Annapolis Complex ... all the officers. His conscientious ef- forts at second class training earned Jim a trip to the Royal Naval Academy, where he learned about the life of the off-duty professional as well. (How does England look from under the table, Jim?) Jim ' s four stripes surprised only himself, his grip on the Concept of Duty always faithful. Jim ' s professionalism was match- ed by his humor and generosity, his always available word processor a savior to Thir- teen. Keep the faith, Jim. Stay away from those hospiUl ships. SEMPER FI! Doc, Flopper. William Douglas Hallahan spuds was a party animal from the word go. We realized this plebe year in Florida, when we saw him at 4 a.m. slurring about how he saved the honor of the U.S. Navy against the Aussies in a local bar (the one with funnels). Bill always had a thing for the letter K. (Kira, Kari, Kandi. etc.) but he settled for a feisty Terp named Kim. I ' ll never forget happy mornings, Towson rugby (the big 19), dead Mustangs, the Femmes, snow peas, late night toasts, 6 stops from the beach to my house, or one last cold one in the snow. The Marines have no idea what they are getting: All- Star Rugger, German linguist. poHtical theorist, lady killer, and my best friend. You ' re more than a man Bill, you ' re a Manwich. Knock ' em Dead! RNH. Curt Carl Hartman Curt came to Thirteen from Cincinnati. Youngster year we noted his strange car- nivorous ritual with his socks. He main- tained his grades while he lost the battle to save his plant to terrorist activities. Se- cond class year we found out that Curt had a " turkey neck " but he still saved his " in- nards. " As a member of CINCRUP, Curt was known for his loan agency and getting Steerage pizza. (Forget about that one, Bumper!) We were ail surprised when he did not go to the Ring Dance because Curt knows so many women in the Annapolis area — they all just happen to work in King Hall. Curt is probably the only mid in the top 100 of the class to never make the Supt ' s List. Being a Batt striper, Curt ' s only inspections were done by his classmates to make sure his civies did not embarrass him when he left for his VGEP classes. Good luck.

As a bull major, he spent youngster year playing war games, reading novels, and visiting Grady ' s Tavern rather frequently.

Marc Louis Ruggiano Marc (Hut;e. Hug. Brillo Head, assorted unmentionables) was a man among men here at the Naval Academy Varsity let- terman in Heavyweight Crew, Sup ' s List, number one in order of merit, organized, efficient, and punctual. A few of these aren ' t strictly true, but he was on Varsity Crew. Marc ' s life was continuously m the verge of turning over a new leaf. That started right after Joe got us locked in our room. He spent his money and time sor- ting out the Corollaries of Syrian Cyntax ana having his Alfa Komeo bent back into shape. Life with Marc was anything but dull - if it was dull Marc fell asleep. My years shared with him will be some of the best of my life. Take care Huge and hang on — you NFOs are along for the ride. JKS.

Nothing has I ' leen off limits to Greg, including the LT ' s ' N box. Memories include: sock wars, ,(agel hockey, a last minute Ring Dance ilate, and much spilled milk. He may have tumbled along the way. but he ' ll graduate I ji Aero major. When he leaves here, some things will never change: die hard fan, fcoyal friend, no car, and no girl.

Richard Michael Macchio Rick could only run away from home for five days at a time, so he could never be found at USNA on weekends. He worked hard enough during the week however, making the top 100. He did this by in- troducing a computer into our lives and thereby lowering QPRs by 2 points. A loyal flag waver, a diehard Redskins fan. but never a geek, that ' s what he ' ll say. Macchio Man gets out of drill as fast as he can. but he was not fast enough for a cer- tain propeller. He never complains; however, he ' ll be quick to point out any flaws. His heart wanted a jet, but his eyes ended up on an oiler. First will come a more important commitment with Lori. We hope you both realize your dreams, but you must stay away for more than five days. SBRGJD. Rene Martinez " The Streak " came to USNA with a large handicap behind him: Texas. We overlooked this, bribed by sumptuous chow packages. That was not all he got free in the mail. He was the recipient of a subscription to Working Woman magazine. This forced him to prove his manhood by streaking from room to room. He was a renowned hitter, ask opposing receivers and Sean. We knew he was an Aero, because of his mastery of " Gas " Dynamics. The Rocket made it easy for Rene to keep up on his Bible study. A devout Cowboys Fan, he still kept a small place in his heart for the Wet Willies. He has his sights set on NASA, and he ' ll be there, as soon as he can figure how to get out of Santee Basin. He has a heart as big as his belt buckle. God Bless. SGRDJ. Ross Paul Mitchell Roscoe came to Thirteen from the wilds of Montana {Helena isn ' t exactly New York City), via NAPS and Slack 6. and quickly established himself as a ladies ' (?) man, though some of his pickins ' were a loose interpretation of the word. Always one for surprising us. he brought his " hogging and antnill days " to a close with second class Army and Jen. Though not exactly striper material, he got those " stripes of conve- nience " first class year and Philly soon became home. Surprise 02 was soon to follow — marriage after graduation for this Montana cowboy! A true rackhound at heart. Ross conducted many an eyelid leak inspection. During his few hours awake, he listened to The Boss or worked on his SWO belly. Good Luck in the future buddy, you will be missed. JGR.

WTien Dan looks like a four-year old who stole the cookie jar. he got a letter or package from his hometown honey. No wife yet, but six months of TAD at home after graduation? His pride and joy is his black and gold ' 86 Z-28. Its rubber signatures scar the streets of Georgetown while his dancing moves caress the bar ' s dance floors. He stands for all that ' s right. His men will see this and he ' ll be a superb Naval officer. RID. Dale Frank Szpisjak Straight in from the Windy City. Doc came to USNA from a real military (high) school. Initially unsure about Navy, this Ail-American rifleman and hard-charging three-striper blazed a path of success dur- ing his four-year tenure. His desire to escort female mids was surpassed only by his strong aspirations for medical school, which made him the first member of ' 87 to get accepted to med school (ala SIU). This chemist earned impressive grades, physically academically, while a member of a demanding Navy rifle team. His exploits on regimental staff revealed a true leader with genuine concern and in- tegrity. The Medical Corps needs good leaders also, and they are getting one of the best in Dale. So long Dale, but never good-bye. JPG. Anthony Miles Tolle Tony came from a small town " by the in- land salty sea " only wanting to fly. Plebe year he made the 150s only to have his career ended by an injury. He stayed with the team all his time here, earning N-stars as head manager. Academics have plagued him from I-day and finals always saved him. He started in Aero and ended up PhySci. via Oceanography. During youngster year Medical had their way with him, tried to boot him, and finally declared him NPQ due to asthma. His car loan is in the bank since he owns a boat — a ' 66 Caddy. By a twist of fate SECNAV approved him for Interservice Transfer over the decision of the PRODEV board, enabling him to enter the Service he originally wanted 4 years ago. Tony will marry his fiancee of over two years the Saturday after graduation. Best of luck, AMF.

No one was sur- prtked Ui find Brian ' s diversity of interests placing him as " the lead " in two unfor- gettable Masquerader ' b performances. Having been piped aboard the USS IxiudrtMim ii|K»n returning from the Point, he, M) . and Walt drew attenlifm quickly to their unique indoctrination methods, especially with a certain USMC Major. After h aving a " Peach " of a date at the Ring OanM . Fir»t f ' lawi Year found Brian kpending much of hu time in conference with Fifth Bait Of As the benevolent deftpot of :ird Batt. Brian has shown us what we always suspected — he is Admiral matenal ' Paul Thomas Horan Paulie came to us from Kenton. Wash- ington, to fulfill a dream of becoming a Navy Pilot. He has als(» become one of the best History philosophers in USNA his- tory. He has put me to sleep on many a school night in the past three years. Who could guess that a Motown junkie could ever have such a great friend who likes Tom Petty and the Mariners? Since Youngster year, Paul has had an KC A that isn ' t in the catalogue but is plastered all over the bars of Annapolis. If there is a person who has always lent an ear, given a hand, or got me " jacked " to play in Sat- urdays, it has to be Paulie. Navy air is lucky to have a great guy like Paul joining their ranks. Best wishes from Jackie and I, and I expect to see your name painted in blue and gold on the lead Blue Angel solo for our fifth reunion. Go get ' em. Ace. TMD. David Wayne Hughes Arriving in 14th Company. Dave not only set the standard for Youngsters, he redefined the term. Whether partying af- ter taps at Buchanan House, dropping a bottle of Southern Comfort on the Dahl- gren dance floor, or teething a young lady in the back seat of a car in the 7th Wing parking lot, Dave found ways to keep the Institute an exciting place. During 2 c year. Dave implemented a physical fitness program for the Jimmylegs by having them chase him from the F-4 to 7-1. C P owners have Hughesie lo thank for in- creased profit margins. Some even thought he worked for them after he made several visits to their parking lot. A love for short women made this Okie choose Japan for his first SWO tour, but with a fine wife in Ijsa, I ' m sure he ' ll do well in his new ser ' ice selectiim of house hus- band. After seeing his Halloween costumes I imagine they ' ll share Lisa ' s wardrobe, if she has anything that racy. Best wishes. JDM. John Thomas Keane Kean-bean came to the Sunny Severn by way of MMA. Always the shy type (especially at social gatherings) he could overcome his introversion for Army-Nax ' y games. His pre-game pep rallies the night before will be remembered (?) by all who attended. Beaner decided to experience Protramid as no other mid could. He suc- ceeded. They will long remember him in Pensacola for the mark he left cm the CO ' s house. Quantico was no less a challenge. Being a PT stud. Kean-bean (along with Spike) ignored all pretense of the need for sleep. The next day was a cake walk. Tom was also a big family man. Once he even drove 6 hours to helj) his dad fix the JO- K computer. He was to Dahlgren what John Travolta was to Saturday Night Fe- ver. To the only mid who has had Cin- derella libs for three years, we wish the best of luck as a naval aviator. We will miss all the good times. Scrotie and l.ec 340 The ItriKadc: Fourlirnlh Company iJ Francesca Deborah Gary Fran came to USNA from a small New England town with the intent of being a Chemistry major and a Naval doctor. Well. I am glad to say that she came to her senses and joined the " brotherhood. " This was the result of an F in Organic Chem- istry. Fran is probably the most travelled plebe as a result of being changed from company to company as a plebe. Fran is not sure why she came to USNA nor why she stayed, but I know that she is glad for the experience {more interesting than an all-girls school, huh?). Good Luck! Always keep your top down and your sense of humor high. Andrew Lewis Gordon Andy came to us via the Philly power- house of Upper Moreland H.S. ' and was determined to become a nuclear subma- riner. Andy excelled as a plebe and grew up to be the plebe ' s ideal of an upperclass. When he wasn ' t watching the Cosby Show, talking in his sleep, or making lasagna shakes, our boy Andrew could be found slaving away on his computer (thanks, mom and dad) and making good grades in Computer Science. Despite his distaste for the Jimmylegs and certain track coaches, Andy managed to excel for Navy on a daily basis and even was accepted by the glow boys, to no-one ' s surprise (not even his own). Andy has suffered many tribulations while at the boat school, not the least of which was having his jaw wired shut for 6 weeks (and he STILL talked in his sleep), and having a future Marine for a room- mate. You ' ve been a great friend and a great roomie for two years. Good luck out there. Hoss. JCM. William Prentiss Hamblet So Bill comes to NAVY with his giri and gymnastics on his mind. A super athlete. Bill gets a cute squad leader and vows eternal love without ever hitting the tubesteak chowcall stage. A g ' mnastics stud, highbar phobia, and a double back- to-vour-head at Syracuse kept him hum- ble. " Bill Hamblet Fan Club " t-shirts prove support. Later Bill is off to China and aside from the USAFA grad in a tub — no stories. Youngster cruise, JD swears everyday Bill was off ship in his Aunt ' s pool and still got ranked §1. On to 14th — great view, grades so good he ' s Diff. Eq ' s section leader. A Bro in Gtown and a GTI (GMNAST) means Bill was assured a cute, Cath. Ring Dance date (home by four- and her folks picked her up). With Bill ' s girls it was quality, not quantity, that counted. Broke their hearts anyway. Be- cause he can ' t match his socks. Bill was Mr. Supply — but turned down stripes later. Went Navy Intel. — my friend Bill, the spook. Leland Duane Hansen Whether you know him as the Ragin ' Ca- jun. Dirty Duane. the Deltoid Destroyer or just plain Handsome " Which way did he go? " Hansen (Leland just loved Company drill), you also know this smiley, ex- company commander is a good guy, and nice to have around when the order comes to fix bayonets. Even though intensity is his modus operandi. Leland reached his lofty goals without alienating too many of his friends. Navy Air was this wildman ' s first love, but myopia and that $6000 pres- ent from Adm. McKee effectively changed his mind. Hoss. thanks for being a friend and a roommate (for a semester or so), and I ' m sure that your new shipmates on tne Vinson will come to enjoy your terrible jokes and questionable politics. Just make ' em a graph. If you don ' t get married soon, you ' ll go far. Good luck in the f eet, bud, and thanks for the great Nuke party. JCM. iitfiLct Wallace Raymond Keays It, Walt, the oldest 87er in the company, I came to 14th via Brookings, OR, the fleet (an F-14 AT), and 28th Company during plebe year. He began youngster year by Itearing up his knee while practicing the 0- Icourse with Jovi. This left him with a Iwhite works chit (almost) and some post- ' poned PE tests (he took his share, .though). Walt Hked to party, just ask the Supe (or his flight jacket). Sometimes he ' just had problems finding his own room. jWalt loved his weekends, when he had |them (EE meant Extra Exertion, yet it |was his major), for then he could play ( " troll " or go see a movie (taking his ( " cokes " ). Walt was also the company trav- lel agent: Wallyworld Trips to Fort , Lauderdale; just don ' t miss the bus! Walt fkept busy managing Navy Football, flying, ;scuba diving, and cruising in his car. l " ReX. " Graduation sends a good room- mate to be a pilot in P-cola; God help the |,| women! Best of luck, old man, and I hope Kto see you in space someday. SRM. Mark Joseph Kozar Mark " Berni e " Kozar gave up the wild parties at Ohio State, the refrigerator kegs, and the ski slopes of the Midwestern mountains to attend the Academy. He came from Ohio, or was it Michigan? That depends on whose football team is ranked higher. Mark has found that " special girl " that everyone looks for . . . several times. His relationships are like his drinks, " on the rocks. " Some day Mark may open up a towel company, because he ' s occasionally known to sweat a lot . . . while running. If it wasn ' t for his neatness, how would my rack get made or my tapes stacked? Mark has excelled in everything he has attempt- ed at the Academy and will be an quite an asset for the " Nuke " surface community. You will always be the conscience I times leave at home.

Fair winds and following seas. DWH. Wendy Ilene Sullivan Wendy turned down MIT to go to the boat , school. She comes from the corn fields of the Kastern Shore. She adjusted to the Academy life very well and found herself i active in the Pep-band and (iymnastics. Academics never gave her many prulilems, and her excellence as Systems major earned her a membership in the Tnu Beta : Pi honor society. As seci nd class brigade ops., she helped organize NLMtU Mes« Night and played the role of Madame Vice. She is an all-around terrific girl; quiet and conser ' ative. but always willing t i help • ' her friends (and usually willing to share f her prized chocolate).

Steven Allen Swift All the years of practice with the " baby " finally paid off. Steve served as the Drum Bugle Corps Commander this year. This distinguished position made him the only four striper or above to serve over 70 days restriction. Quite a feat for just two form- 2 ' s. Moreover, Steve survived the wrath of EE and emerged after four years of hard work with a 3.2. 1 guess he who plays hard works hard!? Steve is a mid who could never be accused of discriminating against women in the military, at USNA or ROTC. After all, he wouldn ' t have any l)girlfriends if he did. If Steve ever tires of [EE and the Navy he could surely model his [fancy winter wardrobe or arctic ski jacket for GQ. Steve will be a great asset for the isubmarine force. You gotta love that ice icream . . . Take her down, Steve. MJK and LHM. Lee Howard Miller Lee " Howard the Duck " Miller turned down the women, the parties, and a schol- arship to Penn St. in order to attend the Academy. After three years of varsity wrestling, his senior year interests were turned towards golf, darts, pool, nerf hoops, and other physically challenging activities. Lee has always been a ladies ' man, and has no problem picking up wom- en (as long as he is in Dahlgren or they are wearing SDBs). His area of study was oceanography, but he was able to pick up an anatomy minor at local colleges (actually high schools). Some things that we will never forget (or remember depend- ing upon the amount of Yu-Yu-Yukon) are skiing and sunning during spring break, the Ram ' s Head, four wheeling, late night popping, and his present from the girl from the U. of Md. A self proclaimed " Top Gun, " Lee chose to fly with the best — Navy Air !! Good luck — you ' re a great friend. MJK (the neat half of the room). John Crosby Milliman J.C. came to the Academy from the back- woods of Maine, but not void of the mil- itary life. A true mariner at heart. J.C. was very active with the sailing team. Maybe more than he would have liked. As a fir- stie, J.C. spent most of his time under his car (the famous SKONK). with his lady friend, proof-reading his roommate ' s pa- pers, in the rack, or killing brain cells with the boys. Many people will remember him as the creator of Pete Prodev. Pete and J.C. ' s banjo-accompanied comedy show brought out the best of his dry humor. His latest endeavor is to write a book entitled " How to Win Friends Through Under- standing and Sympathy. " Now he is off to Quantico and an aspiring career as a Ma- rine aviator. He leaves the Academv in a cloud of SKONK dust with top down, sun- glasses on. and Hank Jr. blaring over the " 350 cubic inches of thunderous power. " Later Champ good luck in the FMF. ALG. David William Odom Dave came to the Naval Academy with the persona of the " All American Boy. " After four years, he has greatly diversified his interests and has developed a craving for orange soda. At times it seems Dave is lost in thought but he always finds himself somewhere near the clam bar. Scrotie cim- siders himself a great driver, and if in- surance rates are a determination of this, then he is one of the best. Dave is a true sports fan, has one of the strongest remote control fingers in the company, and may be the first mid to have a couch cushion retired in his honor. David William Odom has been my roommate for the last three years, and I can attest that he ' ll be an asset to the future of the nuclear power pro- gram. Just watch your hair, your tan. and your belly, Dave. The boys in 14 will al- ways hold a special place in our heart for the fun-loving madman from NC. " Kean- Bean.

Chris ' s M.K. motto: if it moves — no problem, if it sitit still - no chance (The crane!). No matter how tough, taps was bedtime: crew practice goes.

Thanks for everything, JWP John Sheppard Kyle John came to the Academy with one thing in mind: getting out and int i the Ma- rine Corps. His worst mistake was choos- ing a major requiring work: Areoapace. Once he made the jump to PhySci it was smoother sailing. John ' s most memorable semester was spring of youngster year when he survived an ac-board. and found himself UA twice in one week. He spent two months in .Smoke Hall, earning the distinction of senior restrictee. He spent three years tr ' ing to earn a letter in Rug- by. A bad knee prevented this, but his favorite move (a dash to the beer tap at a Rugby party) still earns him All-American honors. At local pubs, .lohn was a favorite amiing his buddies; even without goggles on, he would bite the bullet and settle for second best. (But the chicks still dig him). Never one to back down from a fight or argument, Jcthn will add a lot of fight to the Marine Corps. Veah baby, you ' re just a Yankee Rone, Kat " em and smile! Charles Dean Lane Chuck Lane came to Sing Sing on the Severn as a nice hard working ci)untr ' boy from Pataskala. Ohio, next to the middle of nowhere. Chuck had the social grace of a rhinoceros in heat. Being in hard core 25th ct)mpany as a plebe didn ' t help any; he became a workaholic and a workoutaholic. Youngster year he ac- quired two new roommates who tried to introduce him to wine. w(tmen and song. Chuck wasn ' t taken in; he became to in- terested in 150s football, where he earned two letters as a bruising nose tackle. Chuck came out of his shell second class year: he shaved itut of nece.ssity and had his first beer. From then tm. his grades dropped exponentially and the females of Annapolis felt unsafe. Anyttne who heard of Charlie ' s exploits at the Stevie Ray Vaughn concert first class year knows that his career at the Naval Academy hit a peak that night, Charlie is good people and the Marines should be proud to have him en- tering their ranks. 350 Th« ' ItriKade: Fiflrrnlh Company ' " ««i ' , ta Ik ., ' Michael Francis Guyer I ' o, Mickey ' s road to the Academy was ,nique.

Johnny Badhair. joined us from Richmond .Virginia determined to he an Ocean En- gineer, do or die. despite natural abilities leaning towards rock stardom or a bull major. Plebe year was spent avoiding au- thority, and he would have succeeded ex- cept for roommate Wen Duke, who showed him how to get serious. Not se- rious enough, though, and Navy life (sans weekends) was spent sailing varsity off- shore, boxing, and earning his all-nighter quals in the guise of the Noodleman. Con- tinuing time-waste research (toothpicks, pennies, guitars, synthesizer) earned him the position of company sub. and will be a great aid in the fleet. We never had a dull moment with the man of a thousand voices. Give ' em hell SWO-Daddy! RDH RBD. Reuben Deloss Hart Jr. Rube showed up at USNA not because he loved the sea but because he had never seen it. Athletically he applied skills learned in hometown tumbleweed races and buffalo chip tossing contests to ex- celled plebe summer and became the fas- test pinger in history. Academics were tough, but they would have been easier had he attended all the exams. The ac- ademic challenge of youngster year forced him to take up Hackey and reading. Spring of youngster year, Bett and Joe ' s slowed his torrid sex life long enough to introduce him to Bud, a friend who did not always agree with him. Second class ac- ademics took a backseat to HRC duties. The terror of 7th wing courts spent first class year honing skills and chasing wom- en from Hood. His dry wit could find the humor in any situation; nobody was safe for long without a sense of humility. Fast cars, fast food, and fast women — but they ' ll never catch Binsk. Best of Luck. RBD JDH. Anthony Keith HoUinger Appropriately from the city of brotherly, Tony Tone, Antony, Philly, ' T- Holly. Rust was the constant defender of his home- town. His ability to provide ego-enhancing compliments went well with ladies. None captured his heart like Sharon. He became the Heat Miser as she received all his attention. Tony came here most worried about academics and ended up with the best grades of the crew. As a Navy bailer he tried it all: tailback and receiver. He even tried to be a Bruiser on offense-can ' t forget that UNC block. T couldn ' t make up his min3. We ' re brothers (in-laws?) now and forever. Hago in The Corps. We ' re behind you because we swam the swim, ran the run, and overcame every weakness they put before us — together.

Young- jter year Joe applied himself whoJeheart- [dly to academics and footbali-Notre i)ame is still trying to figure who the one- : ' lay tailback was who threw the TD pass, ' ifter three consecutive Faber Castell iwards for clip board prowess, his football I lareer ended with a brief stint in the f Army-Navy Game ' 86 {if he could only jave thrown that pass a little higher!) Jo- lO, a thoroughbred among mules, was re- ' jown for his Annapolis area motel parties 4 ,nd was a frontrunner by two lengths in |he home stretch of the talley-ho. Second I jemester first class year. Joe became com- ■ any commander by default, but he was » till not averse to tipping a few with the .roops. Having survived Rocket Reed and [aller Keith, Jo-Jo graduates with a Me- [hanical Engineering degree and a plane jicket to Pensacola, Florida. Good Luck jO-Jo. Mathew Allan Ludwig " Lud the Stud " as he is often called hails from Long Island and will be a Naval Avi- ator, the best of the best, and a good one at that. He is a diligent worker who excelled in all things save the mile run during first class year. His insight and good judgement made his sub-commander position valu- able to the company and his hard work paid off in the form of stars. Matt never lacked female companionship as his nick- name implies. After a year and a half of a sparkling relationship with an oh-so-sweet Greek, Matt being the casanova that he is had to fight off beautiful women and stick to the one woman in every port philos- ophy. Matt accomplished heroic feats at USNA having his bouts with oceanogra- phy and Batt lacrosse. One can expect to see Matt accomplishing great things and will be able to find him in the cockpit, behind the wheel of a vintage ' 67 Corvette or as the incarnate of a Prussian Hussar. Best of luck Lud. DSS. Carey Mark-Anthony Manhertz Carey came to USNA via " Da Bronx " and NAPS. At NAPS Carey established him- self as a basketball player. His abilities led to several victories including one over MAPS. At 67 " it wasn ' t often he played someone his size; when he did he remem- bered. He ' ll surely remember that guy who gave him a run during our plebe summer basketball smoker. As a matter of fact Dave Robinson will remember Carey for some time too. Carey guarded Dave in practice for four years and helped to make him the player he has become. He didn ' t shine much his first three years here; but his last year he regained the confidence that got him a position on the varsity squad as Navy ' s sixth man. He went out in style averaging about ten minutes, seven points, a dunk and a block per game. Carey didn ' t do much outside of basketball ex- cept swim. Though he ' s from Jamaica, it was clear that he didn ' t spend much time on the beach. Good luck in your corps. MAM. Antonio Raul Martinez Tony-Tippy-Martinez swam from the warm beaches of San Juan, Puerto Rico one summer afternoon and ended up in Narragansett Bay. Seeing a guy dressed in white he asked for ice cream, but instead signed up for NAPS. After getting to the Academy, he signed away his life (at least a good chunk of it) in search of his navy wings. Three years after he got to An- napolis, the loyal pumpkin-mobile swam up the Chesapeake. Over the years Tippy earned his varsity " R " and took every Spanish course. His arrival in 15th meant immediate initiation in the 15th Co. Poli- Sci Road Warriors, along with Mickey. Panch, Roger and Bobby. First class cruise he went to Spain on an exchange. After graduation he deployed for eight months with the Argentine tall ship Libertad. We wonder when he will do something with the USN. Tony thanks his friends and family, particularly his parents, for their support. Oh yeah, and Adolph Coors. Best of Luck. MGBHRSSP.

Kim works diligently and puts forth a strong effort in whatever she does. She excelled on the women ' s Softball team as the starting pitcher and is a great all around athlete.

He graduated as one of the brothers with a B.S. in physical science (and of course a minor in chemistry) and fulfilled his dream of being a Marine of- ficer. Art has many hobbies: if he wasn ' t doing these, he wasn ' t studying. His hob- bies included drinking, dipping, darts, sol- itaire, spades, sleeping, skiing, TV, coffee, Kim. and reading the same book five times. As an athlete, he excelled on and off the field, gaining a Z in the rack and playing a mean game of company soccer, fieldball. and fast pitch. He spent many hours on the golf course and the 19th green with a good friend Rob. His love life started youngster year. Kim and Art hit it off quickly with Kim worshipping his feet the night they met and subjecting him to Mom Kirby ' s fantastic cooking. Marriage was inevitable and they will be a fabulous pair in Quantico. Take care Art. eat em ' up in the Corps. 000-RAH. DSS. John William Plohetski John was the company social butterfly. There was nothing he didn ' t know about. Plo was so worried about everyone else during study hour that he did his studying after everyone else was in the rack. As a mechanical engineer (Why me? Why M.E.?) in and out of the classroom, he was the company fix-it man. His hard work paid off when he made nuke-surface. John had an obsession for knowing the theory behind everything — especially the crane. His persistence and commitment will lead him to success, except perhaps in his search for the perfect woman; in that re- spect. John " spits on commitment. " When he wasn ' t studying or socializing, he tried to inflict as much damage as possible on other hockey players. John was always the man to go see if you needed a favor or anything else (if you could find him). John and his folks (who could forget all the wonderful things they did for us) will for- ever remain special to all of us. DJA CMK.

At his arrival here in Annapolis, he immediately joined the Corps (HSNA Dumb Bungle Corps). For the years with the Corps he sure had a lot of fun and excitement especially during the second annual tequila party (. ' )K . ' )K-.. ' )K.ir)K). When not preoccupied with such professional development, Eric has learnea to love Rickover as he played with his rubber duck at the tow lank and befriended the " Rickover mouse. " Eric is characterized by his ability to laugh while in adversity and his inability to live with- out his coffee pot and his best frii;nd, " Snuff. " Eric ' s hobbies include taking his gun for walks in the rain, conRlantly work- ing on his Cor ' ette, and pulling his hair out over NARC problems . . .Oops! I ' oo Ute! Well.

At first we thought he was shy, but soon realized that he actually studied at the library. (He looked up words he found in comic strips — cat fud ;) Youngster year he became acquainted with the " late night pun. " Fish jokes were his favorite until he saw no porpoise in them and decided he ' d haddock. Ah a secimd class he consulted; charging $1 for help, ,$:( for answers, and $, ' ) for right ones. He soon developed a lust for young buxom Swedes and ran off to meet some of them on first class cruise. Surviving Crystal City, he selected subs. Not content with 16 he ran off to loo-loo land on 4- 1; it was at least good for a coffee break. " Tack gode tiud att det inte aer poa ricktigt. " Hado, Scotty, see you out there. FWS. Brandan Matthew Kot B.K. look the long wav from Connecticut to USNA — via San Diego. Plebe year in ! 1 2th, he found his chief talent to be belting out " Army Mule " to his upperdass, a fu- ture nightmare for 16 ' s plebes. 16 altered B.K., changing him frtim Madonna to " 10 Seconds to Love. " With his new theme- song, B.K. started a string, from the Big One (Spring Break S, ), going through Ihe tank, the Marine and finally his " buddy. Brandan was active on the beach (amid horses and noxema), and on the seawall, i eventually peaking with his A-6 quals with Barry in Hawaii, to the theme of " Rawhide. " Keep him away from bananas! I and if you stay up late, be ready for sce- narios — " Christi Brinkley or Lynyrd Skynyrd " Always a partier. lie lost it with the best (Remember Army and Fran ' i, Normy?)

When we moved into the Hunted room I thought I was stuck with a S|?k who would keep me up to all hours of !i; night. Then I got to know him. This ,iin mastered the art of max rack and tiar-zero studying while piling up the |) ' s. Then a tall, dark, hoopin ' man )|med CJ became our CO.

Jason Dwight Garrison Jason came to the Academy from North Carolina. He has managed to keep his hometown roots, or should I say Jill has kept him rooted to home. Jason is Mr. Nice Guy: good grades, patient, humorous, etc. But a few things are worth mention- ing. Army was always a high point for him. Youngster year J.D. added a painting of his inner self to a wall at the Ben Franklin Hotel (Those Damn onions . . .). Second class year he introduced the streets of Philly to Southern Style cooking. Spring- time of the same year brought his en- gagement to Jill (good luck with the girl of your dreams). First class year brought late nights studying but when he finally went to sleep it was great, a prodigious sleeper known for his snoring (thanks for keeping me up). Because he failed his eye exam at Cocoa Beach and Franny ' s, Nuke Surface is getting a hellava guy. P.S. Is J. around? (aaaaagh). JMC. Mark Conrad Gibson Gibby. a career student, came to 16 after 4 years of college. Give him a beer and out come the magic words, " When I went to Penn State . . . " He became famous during third class and second class years for his long string of weekends spent with dif- ferent girls from Fran ' s. How many was it Mark? We did see a few. (Remember Joan?) Gibby was also known for his com- pany projects: the K, the Army balloon. Dining-ins, T-shirts, and tailgaters in Philly. Second class year also had Gibby s frequent pummel sessions on J.R. Mark achieved one ambition by leading 3rd Batt. to the Brigade football championship. His dream of marching 16 into the Vet fell through, but he did shock everybody by getting 3-stripes 2nd semester as Batt. Ops. Mark will now take his talents into the surface warfare community aboard the USS New Jersey . Good Luck in the fleet and all other endeavors, and keep the streaks goin ' Buddy. BMK. John Eric Hottendorf " Hotty " was his nickname. He was more than just a fun, lively and dynamic in- dividual. He was also very mature — an example to us all. John sailed into plebe year coming right from the " fleet. " We all admired him for his wisdom, maturity and " know-how. " He proved himself worthy by living through a real plebe year in Dirty Thirty. But Sweet Sixteen was more of John ' s style — cool, collected, easy-going, and just plain squared away. We are all greatly indebted to you John. You have set the standards of excellence which those who follow can only dream to match. JR. John Robert Loricco jhn came to the Naval Academy from lopewell. New Jersey with only two se- ous goals. Survive Canoe U. and have the jportunity to become a NFO. Introduced the ways of the Naval Academy in Dirty Thirty " , John survived plebe year id set his goals on good grades and grad- ition. Along the way John presented mself as the professional he would like to ;come and distinguished himself as the e company honor representative and ' aching sub-squad. John remained the ird-working individual that he is Toughout his time at the Academy, hieving both of his goals impressively. ay he have clear skies and a fair wind in e future to come. Good luck Jr. and member these times when the chips are )wn, Hotty. Michael Robert Martin Maynard came to Navy from the land of Dorothy, Toto and the luckiest baseball team of the 1985 season. He made a name for himself in Slack Six during plebe sum- mer when he sleep walked during a fire drill and was found outside 8th wing by the OOW. We lived in 4th wing. A little " golf and chili earned Mike his first letter, a Black N. There are two things I will always remember about Mike; his inability to pack lightly and his talent for keeping his foot in every door. After trading wrestling shoes for rugby boots, Mike earned a letter he was a little prouder of. Mike had a few memorable experiences which I want him to always remember. The Soviet experi- ence at Goucher. Shore Patrol in Pen- sacola and an eventful trip to the Oceana O ' Club. Girls must dig those pilots. Maynard will be heading down Pensacola way after snatching the third to last NFO billet. If the minimum wasn ' t good enough there wouldn ' t be a minimum. We ' ll miss you bud. Take care. ADB. Douglas Edward Mason Doug came from Raleigh, North Carolina to USNA with the sole intention of be- coming one of the few. the proud. As a plebe in 26, Doug made it through with flying colors, a few good friends, and mem- ories. Third class cruise to Bermuda was an adventure he shall never forget. The JFK was definitely a thrill (want to run?). Youngster year was a learning (?) expe- rience as Dealer was dealt bad cards from C.J. and academics. Doug officially be- came a Poli-Sci major after youngster year, so he then could devote more time to his true love, Schaeffer Light. A few words will always crack a smile: Leslies, poker, Zack ' s and the ship vent. Pop ' s (I ' m a boat), Dinwiddie, the Parkers, Uncle Rog- er and the Canadians, the reef, Peter Pan and Roy Clark, the canoe, point bravo, HMWH ( " Hey Romeo " ), and head over heels. Doug good luck in the Marine Corps. I know you have the knowledge and the ambition to do well. I ' m gonna win — BDB. Carl David Neidhold Chip arrived to USNA via NAPS, so he was prepared for USNA but was the Acad- emy ready for Chip? Plebe year Chip was a favorite of one Giles Kyser IV. Most of the second class of the 4th Co. were not on Chip ' s Christmas card list, maybe his hit list though. Chip always gave those around him the latest information — no need to dial 411 or to talk to the Shell Answer Man. A few times though Dr. Gouge was put out to " wash " in his data collection ventures. Since Chip was a math major, he proved the hypothesis that " you CAN learn 4 weeks worth of work in one night. " By the way, can anyone say " Britain? " Also, who doesn ' t Chip know and could someone tell me where is? I thought this was his room. At our 10 year reunion is Chip going to need a passport? He did what? How many times has he seen her? It must be love. I need some answers-hey Chip! Thanks for the laughs and good luck with Aviation and your marriage. — BDB.

As a youngster Mike was thin ' But then lasagna did him in. Mikey liked to sleep some too. Especially in his rack so blue. For a time he was chillin. ' But CJ made him illin. ' Restric- tion went by slow. But he made it through you know. Grades were still a pain. But catch-up was Mike ' s game. Tree-fife- niner. Late Night TV, Sometimes a little of Pee- Wee. Life at The Cool Ranch was a blast, Makin ' lips. IMF. and muchos laughs. It was all kind of silly until the very end, But through it all, Michael Ryan was my friend. Jonah Wei Shen Jonah " No Wei " Shen — " The Dog " ; Originally from Taiwan, the Shen-dog came to USNA after a brief stop in Ta- coma, Washington where he established both his state of legal residence and his U.S. citizenship. Jonah quickly made a name for himself during plebe summer when asked, " Mr. Shen. how long have you been in the Navy? " His reply: " About two weeks. Sir . . .oh! . . ., All me bloomin ' life . . . Deciding that this was too much ex- citement for him. the Dog quickly moved into obscurity youngster year spending all of his time studying, sleeping, or attempt- ing to master the English language. Grad- uating with a B.S. in Aerospace Engineer- ing, Jonah will apply his B.S. toward becoming an NFO in Pensacola. Banzai!!! Christopher Burke Smith There was nothing like the " new " Chris. His dedication to his studies was. er . . ., unequaled. He quickly found the world of " political seance " after endeavoring to build planes as an Aero major. He always enjoyed his music — over and over again. He would stay up till all hours just lis- tening. In his position as " god of love, " he found out early that " all the world ' s a stage. " But he later proved that sixteen meant more than just his company num- ber. Chris always loved an argument. Yet, he never fully realized the true nature of Baseball or Football statistics. Whenever he found himself in the " crushing grip of reason, " he would remark, " all I ' m trying to say is this. " Well Arliegh, good luck at P-cola.

Trav Andrew Thiesse Although Trav had a hard time adjusting to the small-town atmosphere here at the Academy (being from such metropolises as Springdale. Arkansas and Willow Lake, South Dakota) he coped well enough to actually graduate. Not only that, but he managed to impress Adm. McKee (I ' m not sure how) enough to get accepted into Nuke school. Now you have to pass that. As though the trials and tribulations of being a Mech E weren ' t enough, he had to put up with a wide assortment of room- mates (3) here in I6th company who. at various times and in various manners, contrived to drive him crazy. But that ' s OK, because you did it to us, only worse. Anyhow, now that it ' s all over, we can look forward to being in the real Navy . You will undoubtedly do well and proceed with much enthusiasm, even though that ' s against your nature. One word of advice: Take it easy. (And if it ' s easy, take it twice!) GO SWO! EHH. JWS. Robert John Wehman When it all started the way it did, I knew we were in for four fast fun filled years. The only day off from practice on our first spring trip, we played golf in a thunder- storm with a case of beer and a golf cart, chasing gophers and getting stuck. It only got better. I know one recruit will lemem- ber his trip forever after our quarters game at Bob ' s. Then Friday night libs that be- gan sophomore year. The Army-Navy game that year was a big success. Who ever did ehminate us from the wiffle ball tournament? Wehmo was in great shape so it couldn ' t have been his quick base runn ing. Maybe it was the swiss cheese at shortstop. Let ' s blame the kegs. Wehmo would have turned into a beef n beaner if he ate one more. You ' d think he had stock in them. He liked to slowly fall asleep immediately afterwards. His greatest art was public speaking, especially after tail- gaters. He helped me through 4 years I ' ll never forget. God bless.

Take care of Bert and thanks for enduring mv weekly weight loss. Take care and watch your six. TP. Anthony John Klimas Few men are as well prepared as Tony to assume their duties as Surface Warriors. The inside of his mug is already covered with the slime of an experienced coffee drinker, and he eagerly awaits the oppor- tunity to encrust the outside with sea salt. We don ' t doubt that he will have a girlfriend in every port given the ease at which he falls in love. He spent his early years as an aspiring nn-k dnimmer at out- side formations, and finished off as an outside formatitm celebrity doing a stint as the Batt Adjutant, His inferiority com- plex led him to choose a major where he constantly had to prove something. His ability to differentiate between the impor- tant and the trivial led to an exponential increase in rack time. Second semester first class year he vectored his 2(M)sx t4 wards Hood every weekend, proving it could be done. We wish him a strong wind and a fair sea as he sets off in the surface Navy. ACL and BSS. Andrew Charles Lennon " Skip " sailed into Annapolis from Larch mont, New York, the Preppy capital of the world. Onlv there do people named Bif wear Madras to the Club with Muffy, Andy ' s sheltered boyhood soon fell away, as he learned of manhood in Sixth Com-, pany Plebe year. He almost learned to swear (i.e. " (iosh Dam " , " (lolly " ) and may someday take a drink. Sometime, youngster year. Andv realized that USNA was cake, and decicied to be the perfect Midshipman. He excelled in sailing and, academics, and calculated his profit from investing his Nuke bonus, car loan, and, monthly pay on Black at Atlantic City., As a firstie, Andy was Third Battalion Commander first .semester, and a part time Midshipman second semester, while attending graduate school. He never could find VCtKP parking, and frequently park ed his car in T court. His multitude of talents, and easy disposition will be an asset to the Submarine force. A.IK. 370 Thf liriKade: Seventeenth Company Timothy Michael Deane , Since beginning his ruthless pursuit of ex- (cellence in New Brighton. Pennsylvania. .Timmy has overcome many fierce adver- saries. Even Awesome Boh and the Grue- some Garce didn ' t pntve a match. Tim ' s success features innumerable accompHsh- menls. A curious major selection can hard- ,!y be criticized with the impressive ac- lademic record of this hard-working iSleelers fan. One might think that such lofty endeavors would leave no time for i lending a helping hand to his fellows. Not so with Tim. A flash of lightening was I hardly as quick as Tim ' s efforts to rescue I comrades in distress. Notable among these efforts was Tim ' s saving a roommate from a waterballoon-throwing plebette gone mad. Even when a sock-footed rendition of Karate Kid had mixed results, his com- posure as a pure perfectionist was no worse. Tim is certainly far from finished ;with his achievements. Whenever there is excellence, look for Tim. He ' ll be there. John Patrick Feeney John entered Annapolis from the city of Brotherly Love to spend a year in the intimate Stand in Line Company. During his stav in the Stalag. John studied under the Rocket, played 150s. and collected pennies for the annual Girl Scout cookies sale. Weekends were occupied with drink- ing and intense sessions with Melissa. Drinking with Melissa was one of the Feenstein ' s fonder passions, and one that he excelled at. On his 21st birthday. John and the boys guzzled shots including the infamous " Blazing Saddle. " Well it must have been the walk back to the hall, but John worshiped porcelain for the next twenty hours. Happv Birthday. John al- ways lived up to the " Back Shaft " rep- utation with his laissez faire altitude to- wards the Academy and his general disregard for the regulations. All of these factors combined to make him a great roommate and true friend. Best wishes at Pensacoia and in the friendly skies. Erik Girrard Hoitkamp Erik grew up in tropual climes; it was no surprise when he embraced naval disci- pline and came here. His brother paved the way, and classmates often tell Erik how they appreciated l.,ouie working with them. Erik spent a year at Newport being prepped and made lifelontj friends. As a plebe, he was driven to improve, and de- voted much liberty time in solitary re- flection on whatever small mistakes he made. This was beneficial as later Ferris was rarely caught misbehaving (much to my chagrin.) He was a lady killer with a sharp doo; a winsome, weirdly scientific smile; and a unique wardrobe. At school, Erik favored a white ensemble, identifying his " backshaft mentality. " He did well in economic studies and always helped fellow majors. He excelled as an A-side Rugby winger, and was a member of " darn near the best men ' s floor hockey team in the nation. " Erik will be shredding up the sky at Pensacoia and beyond, and I wish him the best. Michael Meredith Horrisberger Arbitrary summations in time fade i William Aaron Lucas not just hard to describe Bill in this limited space, it ' s impossible. How do you describe a guy who does his most serious khinking while playing Hearts? A man — es. a man — on a quest for the Gouge Parking Space. (Actually, the quest is javer. His parking privileges have been re- voked.) As is readily apparent to the most casual obser ' er. Bill ' s mold broke before he was born. The closest match to Bill is the character Rev. Jim from the show Taxi. Only Jim seems a little more in touch with reality. Bill, as you leave the :lutches of your ever faithful blue whores [both of them), remember a couple things. First, even if you are long in Spades, you ion ' t have to moose for the Lady every :hanceyou get. Second, if you spend $1600 m a 10 year old truck then $2000 more on repairs and still not have heat in the cab, it is not a good deal. Good luck. Bill. Alwavs keep your stick high! SWOGOD. Thomas Jeffrey Lunifeld Luni spent his young impressionable years at Zelda ' s Greenhouse in the thriving city of Pittsburgh, but this riotous living left him unfulfilled. Steeped in the traditions of the Naval Service from brother Bob, Luni decided L SNA was the only place he could receive the discipline he so desired. Here at the Boat School he resigned him- self to the joys of Mech E and free weights. Luni could usually be found spending his evenings with his nose deep in thermo as the soothing sounds of the Doors created the right atmosphere. But more than an academician, Luni was the Renaissance man. He voiced his creative energies in the Glee Club and could appreciate a fine Schaffer Beer with the rest of us. Since he already, had an HP41 and an automatic pencil, the submarine force was for him. Soon, we will go our separate ways, but I know that 1 am a better person for having known the man we call Luni. SWM. Scot Webster Malloy I met Scot as a youngster, but his rep- utation preceded him. He was an over- grown Californian boy with a shock of red hair. Raised playing waterpolo, he man- aged to make time for musicals and play- ing piano. He was introduced to the Glee Club, where under careful yet carefree guidance he became its new figurehead. His sense of humor and gift of el oquent speech were an inspiration to all. as was his elaborate wardrobe. However, at night he could be found in an outrageous blue nightshirt, teddy bear in hand. Surviving the heavy weather of nearly all of the re- quired technical courses, he found his niche as a poli-sci major, making the Su- perintendent ' s List as a first class. Ishmal- loy. The Great Failing One. and Mountain Child were names that he picked up along the way. but I will always know Scot as a friend I can count on. I will remember all of the time, music, and ideas (not to men- tion toothpaste), that we shared. Luni. Gregory Lee Masiello Greg is an unforgettable person who leaves a lasting impression every-where he goes. Being the only guy I know who has cir- cumnavigated the world he made a point of leaving something behind in every country. After a wild night in Munich. Greg left most of his dinner somewhere between Munich and Frankfurt. And as a dedicated leader and an overachiever he shared his leadership skills with the plebes over the summer. It was then that he be- came known as the Troll which he will live with for the rest of his years. Greg was also admired for his desire to look out for his men. When a certain Plebe became in- ebriated during a company dining out. he ensured that the Plebe made it to the halls with no problem and tucked him in. Greg has also been known to be a heart breaker as a certain girl will confirm. Good luck. JAB.

New York sent us the clean-cut all-American guy whose mild manners have served him well here at USNA. With his talent for original thought. Tom was genuinely in- novative in pursuing his goals. However, like so many of us. his ambitions to soar through the skies in an F-I4 were tem- pered by the realities of an eye exam- ination. Nevertheless. Tom never had trouble seeing the right wjiy out of difficult situations and rising up when lough times came calling. Althougli Tdni shared his feelings less than most people, and his sense of humor often took a back seat in his priorities, still those who know him were never disappointed. Armed with his hard charging persistence, he will doubt- less make short order of all the nuclear- powered nightmares of Orlando and pro- lot ' j e.

Scott Edward Urbach Mr. and Mrs. Urbach sur ived lough times al Navy, often subsiding on dog biscuits and instant coffee. A man itf few words, Urby let the blade he slept with do his talking.

Of course, sixty skips a semester isn ' t that much if you are best friends with your company officer; we know it took a lot of y mr time to nin the Urbach clique.

Not only did he take ijxtra weekend duty, he took it upon limself to pick up and critique the movies I:hat were to be watched in the company wardroom. He also coached the lightweight football team to a 7-1 record where he picked up the nickname Woody |Hayes. Dave did what he could to make |5ure the uniform regulations were upheld throughout the brigade. Using his own in- genuity and his binoculars, he made sure that everyone in the 8th wing closed their blinds while changing, especially the female midshipmen rooms. Fair winds and following seas, Dave, and good luck on that 30 year career in the Navy that you always talked about. Gregory Joel Sargent Greg had a rough start at Navy — the subtleties of Plebe year escaped him — but who can yell at a Plebe who would " re- quest permission to cock mv head in bewilderment. Sir " ? He turned his life around, and became our over-achiever, a natural leader known as Mr. Fairness. In- deed. Greg had it all; cheerleader looks, a unique concept of duty, and a penchant for our fairer comrades. Who can forget the wonderful youngster upstairs or C. Thru O ' Neil, his partner in water-sports. Greg was a real wild man with his cars, he never did get the Dean ' s Volvo, but the Ensign-mobile is a fine substitute. Few cars can handle 65 in second on road trips — fortunately Masiello ' s can. But after four years, we know Greg is well prepared for Naval Duties. His " long " competition with arch-rival Big Ben has left him " well equipped " for life after Navy. Jose Ramon Shores Jose Ramon Shores came to Annapolis from the little town of Alma, Arkansas. Most folks see him as a quiet, shy, soft- spoken kind of guy but those of us who know him can just put those thoughts aside. Whenever J.K. shows up you know that fun is just around the corner. During Army Week of youngster year he planted three dozen hot dogs in his favorite plebe room and then later led water attacks against sixty-minute chow callers . . . what a nut! Water balloons seem to be his real weakness. Beware the seventh wing wanderer after a late night pep rally; he ' s an excellent shot. As a friend J.R. can ' t be beat. He ' s got the unique ability to cheer you up when you ' re down and bring a ray of sunlight to your darkest days. He ' s go- ing to make a great officer and a fine hus- band. Gina ' s one lucky lady! Benjamin Sydney Shove Since summer 1983 Ben and the Navy have fit together like foot in glove. His at- tention to detail even led him to tilt his head to keep his cover parallel to the deck. His female companions were numerous, and at times, als(, military. Ben arrived in 17 youngster year with more stuff than some firsties own. He neatly packs the locker full of wargames and civies, leaving the floor available for uniforms. Ben ' s pro- fessional knowledge is impressive. We predict he will proceed directly U) TAO school after SWOS (if he doesn ' t get a con- sulting job with the Soviet Navy first). Ben has done a fine job leading the 17th fleet through many successful NAVTAG battles. He will certainly be an asset to any Wardroom, provided he doesn ' t get distracted by " shore attractions. " As one of the survivors of the rigorous Aerospace major. Ben may finally get a trip to outer space. Don ' t worry though, ties are op- tional on space uniforms. All the Best. AJK,ACL.

He didn ' t need to learn much about the Navy, coming from generations of Navy brats. Steve proves the theory that the West Coast climate is ideal for sports. He is simply a tennis and f(M)tball stud. He ' s either acing you or receiving a 40-yar(l pass. He wasn ' t so sure about some things, though: which girl to go out with, what major to choose, or what to do after graduation. He and computer science battled it out for a few vears and we ' re still not sure who won.

Gregory Scott Coil Greg came to the academy by way of the enlisted navy. He rode into Newport. Rhode Island in the summer of 1982. The green Volkswagen bug he drove added a certain character to his presence. From NAPS Greg moved on to the Naval Academy. You could say that life here has agreed with him judging by the increase in his waist size. Here he found that it was not good to work too hard so he decided to become an Ocean Engineer. Just to make sure that he didn ' t see too many weekends, he decided to backup engineering with varsity sailing. However, he is the only man I know who maintains a 3.0 while holding the varsity rack endurance record. Greg leaves this place without any misgiv- ings. Instead he takes an anchor which he found near Tallahassee, Florida. I am sure that he will do well in the " Bubble Head " community, as long as the blue magnet does not attack too often. Best of luck. REC. Rabon Elton Cooke Ray Cooke is known to the 18th company as a hard-working naval architect. His ex- ploits on the water, in school, and in various Annapolis slummaries are well worth chronicling in a large volume; however, I will Hmit this to a few lines. As a skipper on the sailing team, his boat managed a few meager wins during his last season, which were celebrated with the usual gusto, women, and beer. Of course winning was not always necessary for celebration, but it did help matters along. His favorite hangout, the Ram ' s Head Tavern is well known for its imported beers and sparse seating. A frequent visitor. Ray is estimated to have spent 90% of his pay in this basement dive. In addition to sailing and drinking feats he is famous for the wounds on his neck upon his return from Connecticut. It is rumored that the " irritation " from these sores was the cause of his truck crash in the fall. Ray is well liked by all. GSC. Bradford Jack Edenfield Brad came to USNA from a military school in Savannah, Georgia, but you would not believe it. Room standards were always of great importance to him. People were always amazed at its appearance: clothes organized in piles, sleeping on zebras, and dust balls. This was when the room was clean. On weekends, the stan- dards went downhill. Liberty was also im- portant to Brad. During the week, Brad would get plenty of sleep to be ready for the weekend. I ' m sure that Brad will never forget youngster year ' s Homecoming Dance (Moose), the Preakster, the girls of 7-Eleven, Clarkes, Riordans, and Sher- wood Forest. Academics came easy to Brad. Besides in class, the only time Brad would study was the night before an exam. This would usually be an all-night effort. When he was not studying or sleeping, late at night you could find him in the ward- room. Brad will make a fine pilot. Good luck. Brad. Gep. ' Matt came to us from the lush side of the l| Sunshine State, eager to thrust himself in- j to the rigors of the navy. He managed to ' hustle through plebe year with no pro- j blems. Known to us as the " Walrus, " Matt ' is known for his congenial, laid-back per- [ sonality. He is always aware of other peo- pie ' s feelings; and thus his room was the t social center of the company. As time pro- ' pressed. Matt awoke to the fact that there is more to life than just books. He became I one of the 18th company liberty hounds, spending most of his time in the Diamond , State with a certain, little blond-haired ' girl. The professional stud bagged the . highest grade in the company on the first 1 class PCR. He is always the source of good advice of life in general. Now he leaves us , to move on to bigger and better things in ! the SWO community. Good luck, Matt, may you take your good-natured at- tributes to the fleet as well! TPB and BML. Lance Leo LaCroix Lance came to USNA via the REAL navy and the Las Vegas " Y " . Always the stan- dout, even as a plebe. Lance rose to pro- minence as senior restrictee and coveted Black N winner. Youngster year saw the evolution of Mad Man Lance (he ' s the greatest!). Second class year gave Lance a chance to put to use the valuable leader- ship skills he learned plebe year from the likes of Dahoda, Miles, and The Q. Because of his great tact and interpersonal skills, Lance became company adjutant first class year. Once I explained to him that he couldn ' t make youngsters come around, Lance got along just fine. Now it ' s time to leave the place we hated together for four years. It ' s funny how many good memories come out of adverse cir- cumstances. Lance, it ' s those memories that you ' ll cherish throughout your 50- year naval career. You ' ll do well in the sub- marine service — just don ' t let the captain see your " I violate reactor safety " T-shirt! Good luck! SCB. Leonard LaPorta Len was bom on 01 FEB 65 in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. He led a sheltered life before coming to the Academy. Once he arrived, he realized there was another world outside of Johnstown. Len became confused. Luckily, he played football. The players helped Len adjust to this exciting lifestyle, too well. Now, Len is the leading ladies man of Annapolis. Nary a weekend ends without him either hooking-up or go- ing on a date. To finance his love life, Len started playing the stockmarket. He says if all goes as planned, he will be a millionaire by his 35th birthday. His financial wizardry would have served him well as a supply officer. However, Len chose Surface Line because he wants to be a fighter as well as a lover. Only time will tell. Good luck, Len! DKS. Shelley Marie Laurilla The day this plebe showed-up to practice in a goat shirt. Goober was bom and her name stuck. Youngster year, she found the man of her dreams (a 6 ' 4 " , blond track star!). In her new company, she became a hit tanning in her bikini. Then came the big decision, " should I stay or should I go? " . She played " hookie " for the first two days of classes. The fact that she had Rocket that semester should have told her something. She decided to stick it out any way. Hard work and sweat payed-off First class year. Hot Mama was set with her 280ZX and 3-stripes. Former rivals on the court turned out to be close buddies as we came together as close friends and team- mates to BEAT ARMY (70-52!) and to learn to laugh at life a little, pulhng one another through the rough spots. Shelley made a commitment to Navy Air and a commitment to Brian. We wish them the best of luck. Thanks for everything. Love, Marge and Jennifer (P.S. What is a Delta ' 88...?)

John David Peters John, or as he prefers. " Peterhead " , came to this lovely institution from somewhere in California (where else?). Over the past years, he has sported many fine, inspira- tional and professional haircuts in a varie- ty of colors. Perhaps what John should best be remembered for is his constant protection of alcohol from being wasted in any manner. He has sacrificed (or should I say lost?!) hours of his life ensuring that no beer or tequilla was wasted. Who really wants to party past 10 on Halloween or see the first half of an anniversary football game anyway? His years of this devotion to the cause have left him with a physical appearance, rivaled by but a few, I did not know skin could stretch so far! As for his luck with (and I quote him) " Bimbos " need I say more than Boom-Boom and Bubbles? I am sure he will be even luckier in Florida in the wonderful road turd he owns . . .assuming the headlights work. Grow-up, Rod. TJVK. Daniel Kenneth Schill Dan is not your typical midshipman. He goes to bed at 2300. wakes the next morn- ing for quarters, and then returns to the rack for an additional 2 hours of sleep. Every night he does his hour of work, a crossword puzzle, and then prepares to sleep. What is unusual is that he mantains a 3.29 QPR! Dan has changed in four years, though. Recently he broke down and bought his first newspaper subscrip- tion. Amazing! When it comes time for the weekend, Dan is more than ready. Usually. Dan leads the partying. He has earned the reputation of being a good rug- ger and has acquired the nickname Krusher which adequately describes his play. He crushes anything that comes near him. We all wish you the best of luck in the Corps, Dan. LL. David Glenn Smith Dave ceime to USNA from many places. He spent plebe summer in Third company sweating over little things. He joined the crew team and rowed on to a national championshop. In May. he took a trip to Georgetown that cost him September. He spent his youngster cruise in the valleys of Hawaii until he ran out of money. When he came to 18. we all wondered why he left for crew practice right after lunch. During Army week he reconned the room next door and found Midn Right. Second class year we got a two-man room, but I still had two roommates. They got engaged in May, two months after we put their names in the lottery. After the party in New York. Dave spent first class year laughing at our fourth roommate and training two new ones. Dave is now on his way to Pen- sacola to FLY NAVY. Rumor control overheard Dave saying, " Co-location is good! " I wonder why? Good luck, and don ' t forget to set an extra place on the table.

Russell Howard Clarke To the man who has everything, including eleven Neil Diamond Compact Discs, a 1987 Thunderbird, and more assets than Wall Street, we highly suggest you loosen up. Russell, you always claim to be frugal with your money. However, choosing Bob ' s Big Boy over the Red Lobster when dining out with your girl is a little too frugal. Maybe if we didn ' t know about the Nuke bonus check or the once a week Compact Disc purchase we would not rib you so much about being tight. Yet, when it comes to dedication, reliability, and bad jokes, generous is the word that comes to mind. Besides, what would we do without our resident financial genius, water polo superstar, and fieldball stud? To tell you the truth. Jumbo, we will miss you. Good luck in Orlando and with the Nimitz. We are sure you will have a great career even though you are a bubble-head with a sun- roof. RES and EER. Christopher Joseph Compeggie Taste. Chris has none in music or clothes. But once we got past Sex Pistols and Goodwill shirts, we realized Chris was a pretty good guy. Chris worked very hard to get his excellent grades, but he knew when to relax. Numerous road trips to Philly, New York, and Chicago made Chris a new man. I ' ll never forget our first fraternity party with that punch. Recent- ly, Chris has found a new pastime. Even though he left a pound of her flesh at the goat farm, they ' re pretty good together. Just give him some beer, a couch to lay on, and a full day ' s coverage of pro wrestling, and Chris is a happy man. Thanks for all the good times, you ' re a great friend. Good luck, buddy.

John William Craig If anyone has doubts about where John is from, they obviously haven ' t spoken to him and given him the chance to tell all about it. The windy city, the home of the Fridge, The Bears, everything that is good in life. Maybe USNA can ' t oe relocated; no, John taites care of that by gettine duty in his own house. I know, the world is in your town. John is one those really great guys who always looks out for his buddies. He is personally responsible for the ma- jority of company parties, supplying a large sum of women and a good time. John is used to a party — political science major — us engineers understand. This blonde hair, green-eyed stud (as S.P. would say) had a hard time at first, but due to his two roommates ' infinite wisdom and some hard work he went from probation to stars; most impressive, John.

HeeHaw salutes Union City population 1987 — " Salute! " Left Sweet 16 for Mighty Fine 1-9 in the shuffle. Hibbs never got over homesickness; youngster year he was found writing his grandffalher three times a week. The same year, he introduced his Spring Break line of Hibbinwear, the zoot suit. Hibbins ' in- fatuation with earrings is surpassed only by his desire to attend movies alone. Jim entertained the Huns during a Ring Dance bus ride with HibbinRing Rock. Three years at USNA taught Hibbs how to be an Officer and a Gentleman. Once he went undercover to show a Quaker his Topgun while the rest of the party watched in awe and Grease became extremely jealous. But his legacy is attributed to his uncanny ability to get a room very late on a snowy night for lonely unknown females. 4-4 will forever miss Mystery Mid. Go UT, Univ- TX. Be good or be good at it. MPJ. Eric Chee Ho Eric came from " The City " without a clue about this institution, plebe year, or mihtary Hfe. In spite of all this, he made it through and was a constant source of amusement for The Realm. Upperclass called him " Plebe Ho, Hi-Ho, Hey-Ho. and Ho-Ho " — Christmas was torture. There are many fond memories of Skate 8: Beast, Milker, Stew. Country Corner, An- na Karenina, DEF-CON 3, X-mas decora- tions and Army week. There was Mad Dog 20 20 and the 12 hours bottle to throttle. Youngster year he became a study grinder, staying in all weekend with his roommate. It didn ' t take long for everyone to get used to his mind games in 19. From push ups in the hall at one in the morning to stinky dried squid and moon cakes, he was a lot of fun to room with. He qualified for na- tionals in powerlifting and earned his gold jump wings in one year, pretty impressive feats. You ' re a cool dude. Eric, and you know it.-Bear. Phambo, Bri. Tina Bridget Ingold Even the IRS doesn t know where Tina comes to us from. Singapore? Virginia? The PI? Pennsylvania? But once she finally got here-with a quick party stop at Perkiomen Prep-she made her presence known, all 5 feet of her. Her bubbly per- sonality captured the hearts and minds of everyone — especially the wolves of ' 85. Most men have a terrible nabit of falling in love with her, whether she hkes it or not. An avid PoH Sci major, Tina picked up a minor second class year-juggling. But after lots of time and money invested in the art, she decided to give it up for research in aqueous natural disasters. Tina ' s efforts culminated in four varsity letters in swimming (Thank God for the new point system!), 0.84 carats, and stock in General Foods International Coffee. Tina, it ' s been a fun three years — I didn ' t like studying at night anyway! We ' ll all miss your social hours!-TLS. Mark Preston Joslin Mark came to USNA from Mesquite. as in " Mesquite Grilled.

With a restrictee roommate, he didn ' t have to make up excuses to spend all his weekends at Key-um ' s. Pass the ihce, please. Uncle Mark did manage to get away to Daytona for spring break, bringing the zoot suit and wild turkey back into fashion. Mr. Joslin personified " power tool " for the class of ' 89.

Bnan. the heavy metal, head banging surfer from southern California, quickly became a contributing member of the " Huns " as well as a major pen pal of Mastercard and VISA. His academic excellence was only outdone by his ability to consume large quantities of alcohol. He left his mark on many parties (usually in technicolor). Se- cond class year he became a casualty of brute totalitarian force: I ' m talking about the 1 threat to freedom, free will, and our democratic way of life. You guessed it, Brian fell victim to a woman (Just kid- ding, Shari). After deliberations of going SWO out of Great Lakes or Marine NFO. Shari. (Oops!) I mean Brian decided to stick with Navy NFO.

" If I am King, I ' ve got to be the next Brigade Commander ... or Regimen- tal Commander ... or Battalion ... or I ' ll even settle for Company Commander.

South of course, Phambo came to the United States in 1975 by plane and boat.

Nevertheless, Kenny has never neglected his military desires as he easily qualified shooting expert in both pistol and rifle and earned the coveted gold jump wings. A devoted physical scientist, Kenny has managed to study on his back, with the lights on. book over his head, eyes shut. Not known for being a partier.

Tracy Lynn Smith Tracy came from Mountain View, Califor- ' nia to the harsh realization that the East Coast did exist. Prior to USNA, it was on- 1 ly a resting spot to bigger and better things I in Europe. Youngster year was an educa- I tional experience for Tracy; it just shows ' that nothing is impossible. Second class year she amazed us with her talent for languages, German in Poll Sci and inven- , tive colorful metaphors in EE. Tracy even I made exchange officers check their pro- ' nunciation! You are also a proud owner of I a sword, sure would be nice to wear while . you can, no thanks to the midstore. Well.

Glenn Warren Stevens Glenn has distinguished himself as an athlete since he ' s been in 19. Youngster year, he spent hours doing push-ups — a few hundred a night. But second class year, he found his true calling and became the master of Batt Frisbee. His athletic ability was matched only by his profes- sional bearing. His relationship with the 4 C was always first- first name basis that is. Knowing now what I do about Glenn though, I wouldn ' t change a thing. Being an engineer, Glenn never lost sight of the importance of setting goals. He set his standards high and kept them there. Glenn was just as concerned about his academics as he was his morals. He is one of the few people I know that came into the Academy with high standards and morals and is graduating with the same level if not higher. He never let the at- mosphere or bad party attitude rule him. The Navy is extremely lucky to have him and I am extremely lucky to know him.-JWC.

Nevertheless, he man aged to maintain an easy going and even- tempered attitude despite whatever pres- sures and stress arose.

Though we didn ' t all agree with his taste In music, nobody could fault his taste in cloiheti. He used his GQ image to good advantage on his trips to Paris second class year. Then came first class year and his Mrapeh with death: fast cars (and roll- ing ones), slow grades, few pull-ups. and femmes all tried to leave us Grifflefis. De- spite hih cosmopolitan tastes, Grif also enjoyed the basictt: a blonde with a ma- ternal streak.

Time will t«ll nJH JMM Ronald James Harris Ronnie J! The man. the mouth, the legend. Never before has I ' SNA witnessed a larger bundle of energy. Navy ' s finest distance runner ever. Ronnie has managed to ac- cumulate eleven " N " stars. His accom- plishments on the track are unlimited. As a second class Ronnie reached the status of croKs-ctmntry all-America. He single- handedly rewrote Navy ' s track and cross- country record books. As AI ' s pal his pr es- ence will be missed. Ronnie J ' s accom- plishments off the track were also im- pressive. Was there ever a semester that ne went into finals with above a 2.0? Of course not, but he always survived with ravy. Ronnie was able to maintain a close ason with his Rialto " homcboys. " We still dim ' t know how he was able to get so much mail. We ' re counting on you to give ' em hell when you reach the Bay area and the IISS Gray. Only two questiims remain. Who ' s going to do your taxes? And when are you going to get an air c m- dilioner? Best of luck and AMF to USNA. DCH. Michael Peter Hatheway When he ' s not cutting up the Severn on his windsurfer or terrorizing Pennsylvania skiers (with a broken wrist, no less!), Mike can be found strumming a tune on his guitar or talking himself through a stub- born math problem. (He tried engineering but decided he ' d rather expand his mind instead of filling it with garbage.) Mike impressed the women as well as his class- mates with his charming smile, quiet sense of humor, and. of course ... his two-step (just ask the Jithnnies!). However, he seems to have had more luck hooking up his friends — having left an impressive string of married roommates in his wake. The aviators are lucky to get such a great man. RKS. Michael Stephan Herron Mike, a tough kid from South Jersey, wh ' likes to eat. got the name " Bam-B.im " foi being such a hard hitter on football spt-cit teams. After even. ' home game he had th best tailgaters with the nest fond, com plemented by endless Rolling Rocks. Th- tailgates lasted pa.st sunset and into th " hours beyond the designated times. Mik is the most relaxed person I know. Hit excessive eating habits probably accourt for the move from ITiOfC football to a startt ing position on the varsity team. His conn placent attitude helped him through hi ocean engineering major with a minimc amount of sweating. He ' s a definite har worker and achiever, aspiring to play th giijtar in a ja .z band and return to hi litfgoard duty after retirement. I ' m sur that Mike ' s " chilled " attitude and level headedness will provide him with succes in the future. PACKY. 402 The KriKHclf: Tiventirlh Company Kenneth Franklin Dunn Jr. Ken came to USNA from Marietta. GA via ' the fleet, completely unprepared for what ' was to follow. That showed when he drove : up to Gate 1 on 1-Day and asked where to park his car! A year as a Georgia Bulldog didn ' t prepare him for Canoe U. But Ken did well, finishing his degree as a ■ ' ££. " So I what if the youngsters took more week- ends than he did as a firstie?! It takes I " EE. " of course, to spell gEEk. The free time he did have was taken up with stud- I ying and working on his pride and jov — I " the Car " : a " 66 Chev - Impala Convertible. Ken ' s image as a geek was somewhat re- I duced at Service Selection. Despite his i nuclear training, or maybe because of it. Ken chose to go pound ground for the ' Corps in his little green suit. So he ' s off for , Quantico and whatever it is that Marines ' do. Whatever he does. I know he ' ll bring ) enthusiasm and dedication with him and I he ' ll have a good time doing it. Best of luck I wherever you go. JHD. Greg Robert Ellison Greg was a machine, he ran like clockwork. I could not help but admire and respect his Puritan work ethic. The (mly indecisive event in Greg ' s Naval Academy career was settling on a major. Most people switch majors once; Greg switched twice. Being a local homeboy from Baltimore, Greg saw a lot of time at home on the weekends. Spending most of the time with Laura, his main babe, he still found time for his com- pany friends, entertaining them at tail- gators and parties at his home. And who can forget those parties? Time to take bets on Bernie. Greg was also the gouge for food. His main suppliers were Mom, Lau- ra, and his sisters. His main consumer was Bulky. With the quality of food that I have sampled. Laura will make Greg very happy and I wish them the best. I just hope Greg has the right stuff to keep Laura as happv- PFK. Scott Edward Erdelatz Scott, from Milbrae, California, came to the Academy from NAPS. He breezed through Mean Fifteen Plebe year, then transferred into Roaring Twenty, where he continued to strive for excellence. Scott gave his best in every job he had here, from company Honor Rep to squad leader. He was a terror Plebe Summer. After losing his voice the second day. he chose a plebe to ask rates at the table. He had high standards, but was also very understand- ing. Motivated by his love for God and concern for people, Scott led many Bible studies and helped others grow spiritually. He was committed to living for Christ. Scott has been an encouragement to me as my roommate and friend. I think the Ma- rine Corps has finally found one of " the few good men " they have been looking for. KLF. Kenneth Lawrence Frack Ken came to us from Portland. Oregun. a land of rolling hills and little humidity. Ken, however, soon learned to breathe, and to adjust to the rigors of plebe summer and life in 33rd Company. He struggled but managed to overcome most of his ob- stacles at the Naval Academy through hard work and diligence. A sub-squader plebe year. Ken was leading sub squad workouts by his second class year. In 20th Company. Ken was harmlessly given the nickname " Rack " by his observant room- mate. The name stuck and Rack he has been ever since. Those who knew Ken well will remember his generosity and zeal in following after Christ. A desire to know his Savior and help others know Him char- acterized Ken ' s life at Navy. Ken ' s spirit of excellence and desire to please God will stand him in good stead both in the Navy and in life. John Walter Hesse I When John came to USNA from Fay- ( etteville. North Carolina, little did he ex- I pect the " fun " that he was going to have. I He survived plebe year as a Killer Duck in ! 25 and moved on into Ta ' wenny. After an I initial bout with English, John settled I himself into career as a PoHtical Scientist, I putting his talent for " bull " to work. Of I course being Group III also left him plenty i of time to rack — probably his favorite I pastime. The years passed pretty quickly I with John spending his weekends at his ! home-away-from-home in Mclean. Virgin- ' ia with his Uncle Rayburn. The rest of the I week was spent sleeping, writing, or lis- I tening to one of his over 200 albums. John Iwas definitely the music king in 20! In ' January John made his dream come true I — he became a SWO-Daddy. Just give I him a tall ship and NAVSATto steer her I by. With John in the Fleet. Surface Line [will be mighty fine. Best of luck to you, John and we ' ll see you at sea! JHD. Daniel Clyde Hill Dexter has two meanings. When Dan (D.C.) Hill showed up at the Naval Acad- emy, his poor squadmates had to mem- orize his hometown of Dexter. Michigan. These bright kids nicknamed him " Dexter, " after that bustling metropolis. I call him D.C. Lucy calls him Hillard. Girls call him all the time. D.C. is a very re- sponsible individual. He really knows how to take care of things. When he was driv- ing his fresh ' 74 Toyota, he really took care of that car! Penzoil, Valvoline, you name it. Motor oil was definitely motor oil for D.C. He ' ll make a great engineering officer on that gas-turbined gray streamlined beauty out of San Diego, California.(Have the men change the oil every ten thousand nautical miles, will ya, D.C?) D.C. has one good eye for the good times. Someday, he ' ll shine his leathers. I can ' t wait to take him for a ride on some hot summer day in the future. He ' s my man! May the " Bunkhouse Boys " live forever! RJH. Kevin Carlos Hill K.C. came to the Boat School all the way from Vienna, Virgina one day to take the place by storm. Four years and a few squalls later he ' s ready to leave. Kevin set himself up for quite a challenge here, choosing " EE " for his major, but he made it through without too much trouble. He even found time to hang around with " the Boys " on the weekends — memories of Beast still linger. And he ' ll always have fond memories of trips to U of Delaware and Va Tech. But Kevin settled down first class year, due in part to bemg Company Commander second semester. Profession- alism ran rampant throughout the com- pany under his steady hand. Besides, we were all too busy thinking about grad- uation to argue with him! Service selection found K.C. choosing Surface Line with a twist — he went Nuke. So he ' s off to Orlando to apply himself some more — hopefully to his studies! Wishes for the best of luck go with K.C. with a reminder — No Nose. JHD. James David Houck Hack came to us from Phoenix via a two year enlistment and NAPS. Plebe year confusion soon set in as he sought refuge in his shower and the Wall. Ten miles, a 2.0 or whatever it took saved him from aimlessly wandering the streets of London looking for good movies and set him into youngster year and the brotherhood. Hack ' s second class summer experiences forced him to realize his true destiny as a " Warrior " . His motivation was never higher as he passed EE with L ' ncle Bob on the first try (those staples and brakes just wouldn ' t hold) and was almost commis- sioned by the AC Board. To top it off, he met the perfect girl less than a month later. Liz soon became his main concern and we all knew this was it. It was an honor to have met Jim and I ' m proud to call him a friend. His dedication to the Navy and his family make him nothing short of a great person and an outstanding Naval Officer. FWAFS! PJH.

It ' s an even longer way. however, from Plebe Summer to Graduation Week, and you ' ve managed to make the most of your stay here where Severn joins the tide. You have spent a lot of long nights at the library agonizing over Aero (at the ' brary mainly because of neg- ative study distractions such as myself), but in the end. it was well worth it. I would wish you luck at Nuc School but you will probably be setting the curve there, so all I have to say is have fun chasing Huskie subs. The Silent Service does not yet know what a fine officer is being added to its ranks. And by the way. if you hai pen to get assigned to the West Coast after Sub School, we ' ll hop in your black convertible Porsche 911 and make a road trip .some weekend, or do some camping (I ' ll built! the fire, you chaae the bears).

West Virginia, he used to remark that the best thing about plebe year in ' 2 Xh Company was not having to tell people how to say his first name. A natural athlete. Kenaud was a member of the Academy fencing team, where he swashbuckled with distinction. He never lost sight of his true loves though: Tennis, the violin, and KK. As youngster year came Roaring Twenty became his home. First class year found him as one of the few KK geeks (or " studs " , as they l ike to call themselves) remaining in the brigade, with stars to boot! The Academy awarded his performance with the job of fourth battalion sub-commander first semester, a job he performed with such distinction that they ' ll still be talking aboni i( vears from now. (nr at least 2 ' 2nd Company willl The Silent Service made a fine choice, and one of the best is about to hit the fleet. MPH.

He developed a strange attraction for heavy machinery while riding shotgun in his father ' s 18- wheeler. During his Irish Catholic up- bringing, he learned discipline from his father and physical toughness from his sisters. His Irish luck ran out the only two times he broke regs. (0-2) " Choo-Choo, " a running back on the Plebe Football team, could take a hit. but in ' 87 learned that it ' s much better to give than to receive. (Brigade Champ. 190 lbs.) Tom was a hard-charger in the classroom with a tre- mendous capacity for memorization. He would finish work during the week with high-expectations of drinking a few fire- brewed cold ones on the weekend. An in- tense individual who never lost sight of his objectives and made it to the end of the huge rainbow. To the most sincere and dependable guy I ' ve ever known — Good Luck. BAM-BAM. Timothy Alexander Rogers " Slimy " Rogers kept a low profile except for the weekly nag session while cleaning up Grifs weekend mess. See, Tim was domesticated; on the weekends, he lived with Ange, his wife-to-be. Somehow, Tim provided for his psuedo-wife ' s creature comforts and still paid for the rejuvena- tion of his lifeless VW; though the op- eration was VERY long and strenuous, it was a success. Despite a weakness for crossword puzzles as well as the fact that he took more weekends second class year than he was eligible for first class year. Tim maintained an unreasonably high QPR. Tim was a poet as well as a scholar, always spouting verses of questionable " slimy " poetry. His willpower, though, was beyond question: he quit smoking at least twice a mimth. We ' ll never forget Tim ' s bulky figure dragging his dad at basketball games. From the boys of TAwenty to Tim " Buck " " Slimy " Rogers: Happy trails, " buzzard meat " ! JPG JMM.

When I first met you in the " playboy " company, you were a veteran of CIoud-9. I guess it was only natural that we would eventually room together since we are n ih from the southwest. I hoj) you will always remember the good times as well as the bad. The academy is a strange place, we curse it for pushing us so hard, yet we are proud lo be a part of it.

PW4:t02 arrived from Ca. to learn how to be a professional. Instead he learned BOHICA. After an easy plebe year Scott mellowed out. but was still sentenced to two-man solitary confinement. Luckily for him. he was rescued by the moron twins (We ' re not twins!). Besides major discoloration of the hair and wearing cloths with colors unknown to man Scotty seemed to pull through nicely. Scott mastered the arta of sailboat stripping and US Canadian rela- tions while on cniise, along with taking rookie honors in hockey. Scotty ' s life blossomed when he met his sweetheart at the Int ' l ball, little did he know that it was two for the price of one. -Scott was also a nroud eccm. major and could often be heard voicing his love for the major. This along with " honor " meetings and com- pany computer pn iecta gave Scotty a try- ing senior year. Fortunately. Vermont, bud. skiing, and pjimpadors preserved his sanity. Kick A in Pensacola, ED, Philip Edmund Corcoran We ' ve had to put up with Phil for four years. The first year he rowed crew because he needed team tables in the spr- ing and because he needed another excuse for not studying . . . football was over for Phil. The next year found us blessed(?) as roommates. Phil (alias Coco) kept things pretty interesting. Phil met scores of " the coolest " girls, but we knew they would never last. The number of them that found out that he prefers to sleep nude, we can only wonder. Phil had a little run in with the Law third class year. Primarily because he wanted to show off his boxing skills. He spent his community service hours picking up mothers of the kids he watched at the day care center. Phil took some unauthorized liberty 1 c year and paid for it in the usual manner . . . Smoke Hall. NAFAC and " research " were also shifty 1 c adventures. BTK. CSP. Eric Brian Dano Eric Disco, Dino, Great Dantini, PW4302 joined us from lovely De-troit along with nis orange Nova. Eric put in a year at NAPS and was an instant hit with his company officer. He was a charter member of the cliff-exploring team and learned that there is poison ivy in winter. Eric was also in charge of giving the snow a military appearance after snowstorms. After plebe year in the club and an ex- citing youngster (F) cruise. Eric decided to see the nation. In Ca. he demonstrated the £irts of skiing backwards into trees, playing Mario with rental cars, and texturing BOQ wallpaper. Who says you can ' t go left on red down a one way street? Skiing led to scuba diving and Ft. Lauderdale. Of course, Eric fell for a UNC babe and miss- ed out on the wild Canadian women. No, S.C. Troopers don ' t take mastercard. Eric was a member of the butter affair in Vt.. and in Hawaii he learned to be a Hard Charger, but I still wish Brooksie were go- ing to Quantico! PC. Frederick William Dau Proudly continuing the Dau Naval Tradi- tion. Rick came to the Academy as a firm supporter of USNA. This frequently left him in unfavorable situations, ranging from being the Liquor Commissioner on road trips to being voted the " Biggest Tool " as a second class. It was always easy to tell when Rick was doing homework by his pounding on the desk, his kicking at the walls, and the puddle of sweat under his seat, but at least one of us did it. To counter his irascible side. Rick was always looking for the perfect mate. The first left youngster year, then again second class summer, and then a third time second class year. Some people just can ' t take no for an answer. Then first class summer rolled around and Rick finally discovered inebriation after sailing to Bermuda, where he also discovered Cindy, who has been with him ever since. I wish the best of luck to both of them, but please don ' t try to fix me up again. JEV. Christopher Thomas Fay Chris, you drink too much. All three of vou do. It never mattered what Chris did as long as he looked good doing it. He always wanted to be a Navy pilot, figured he had a shot at one of the 400 carriers. Plebe year ... no problems. 3 c year . . . bouncing on the supe ' s bed, Fay vs. URI - URI: 1, Fay: 0, Sanctus et Puritus. 2 c year Chris won a job with the WBAL sports team after the Navy-Duke hoops game. First Class year he finally got a car so now he can always look cool. Finding the correct Bay bridge on his late night trips to Philly proved to be his biggest problem first class year. A two time 2l8t CO. spotlight awardee, Chris enjoyed the generosity of his room- mate. Chris, no matter what you do in the future, it ' s good to know that you ' ll have both of us at attention next to you helping to explain. Best of luck in flight school, we love ya. J JF CED. Alexander Gunther Ihde Springing from the dense jungles of Timonium, Md.. Alex arrived at USNA, entering 13th Co. and the Drum Bugle Corps. The scramble made him my room- mate for the next two or so years in 21. en- joying the youngster rack followed by a well-laden 2 c year in which we both learn- ed some important lessons. 1 c cruise on a Westpac pushed his life toward the service of the gold scarlet. 1 c year we didn ' t see Alex too much, due to Sharon, his girlfriend, and OCF. He never really had any problems with academics, anyway. He would always figure out a way to do something in a way which no one else would ever dream. In any case, his strong relationship with God will help him meet any challenge in the future. Press on! TMT. Brian Todd Kline Not much is known of his plebe ex- perience: only his existence as a crew jock, company commander, and his potential for geekdom. Let the record show, Bri ' s biography tells of his aspirations to com- mand a nuclear submarine. Our Brian? Just shows that Brian drank heavily even as a pleber. Yet " the scramble " saved this impressionable Wisco-boy. He never studied (except crosswords), but " he ' s a KA-genius ... He knows everything. " So, he ' s Top-40. Latter years included fashionable drunkenness in New York, frequent purchases at Fishpaw ' s, local col- lege femmes. and Dylan! Special thanks to John Susan for giving him a place to sober up. Brian could not resist the temp- tations awaiting him in P-Cola, but he fell for the Marine way of life. The USMC fooled a good one. Bottoms up! Coco, George Aloysius Lipscomb George the Conquerer had much better luck with the Academy and travelling than he did with women. From touring Australia, Hawaii, Hong Kong, and the Philippines, through Europe and the U.S., to being a Battalion Commander and the first aviation selectee of the class, George ' s successes were numerous. But his record with the fairer sex was less glamorous. Youngster year offered numerous young prospects, but second das?, year was a dif- ferent story with two bricks and, much to my dismay, a last minute Ring Dance date with my sister. First class year had quite a range of women, from a 32 year-old aerobics instructor to Miss ex- ' 86 who wouldn ' t break it off, but then George always did enjoy a challenge. The future will undoubtedly hold many challenges for him, so as one of his many good friends, I wish him the best of luck. JEV. William Peter Matthes Bill came to Navy from the seafaring town of Boston. He got off to a good start plebe summer in Mean 15 with Rocko, Fez, and Chas, and ended up breakdancin ' in the streets of Georgetown. 3 C year found him on a sub-cruise and masochist habits such as his systems major. He arrived in Playboy 21 and soon became the terror of 4th Batt with the reign continuing right through 2 C year. 1 C year saw nis mellower side as he gallivanted across the country from San Diego for cruise to Houston for the All-Star game, the beach, women, and back to USNA for plebe detail. Memorable impressions were always Opie ' s fate (lest we forget Army- Navy ' 87) Finally, he sold his soul to Nuke Power and laughed all the way to the bank. Thanks for the memories. Bill. From the Allagash to Boston to Houston, I ' ve never had a better friend. TJW. The Brigade: Twenty-First Company 413 William Arthur McCarthy Hill •nmr (.. u« n ki tmm (n.m lUnmlm. Vl Wbrn hr .h.

Mex, Vermont, and San Diego, with stops at NAPS, San Diego St., and NAPS. With a background like that we knew that Mike was destined for stripes, five as a matter of fact. Too bad that they did not let you speak (BS) at your board, or you may have received 7 or 8. That background explains his desire to see Europe, but every summer? Rather than fly, he sailed to Europe in ' 86; that covered the phone bill. What was the reason for the Poly Sci Major, rack, or every weekend with Mo? Practically a member of the 21st co. Mo was probably the first girlfriend to be placed on the Fri- day noon meal schedule by food services and placed in a duty section. Wlien are you going to trade in the wife ' s (oops) hot little Fiat for the 4 door BMW with a baby seat and a golden retriever? To the man who changed his service selection more often than his underwear; you made the right choice. WAM. Ernest William Swan This eager young goose from Santa Cruz came seeking adventure and intense com- pany. His tie to the Semper Fi would have to wait but adventure was " where you make it. " Wliether he was roofing, captur- ing negative ions, or burning hairs off sleeping friends. Em never gave us a dull moment. This is all because he loved life with a passion he felt others should share. Yes. Em Dawg raised some eyebrows but he lifted our spirits as well. Despite his outward insanity Ern always amazed us with his personal side. Poetry, medita- tions, ana deep philisophical conversa- tions alerted us to his incredible spirituali- ty and intellect-the qualities he also sought in his friends and women. Of both there were many for he never feared to love or trust. His energy enables him to do anything. But Em was bom to be a Marine. Good luck my friend and thanks. MPP. Thomas Michael Truden Thomas, T-Man, Mr. T., Tommy, what can you call somebody who doesn ' t sleep? He would certainly give one that impres- , sion with all his activities. Tom figured j that the success in getting through the . Academy was enjoying himself and getting ■ first class privileges as soon as possible. He did that plebe year by joining the . debate team and having more weekends than the average firstie. Youngster year found Tom in a different environment, with different challenges ahead of him, I such as how to destroy the Chemistry lab I in the most unique manner possible. Later I he occupied himself with an active role in , the Navigators and harassment of his : roommate. 2 Timothy 4:18 will guide Tom in the Marine Corps. Good luck! JCW. Joseph Eric Videll After a stint in StaJag 17, Joe scrambled his way to the Playboy Company. Bald and fresh from Airborne, Joe was obvious- ly looking to be a flying Leatherneck. He took pride in all he did, from his mirror- like leathers, to his major, to training the plebes with his intensity. It always seemed that the plebes loved him, visiting for comearounds by day and then goat court at night. As the consummate party animal, Joe was known for his fondness of alcohol, music and fine women, thus win- ning him the reputation of wildman on the dance floor and two bricks back in the hall. During his several ski trips to Ver- mont. Joe left his mark on the streets of Rutland in multiple colors. Joe was so- meone you could count on and a great friend. He is the good man the Marines are looking for. Jonathan Derrel Washburn Affectionately referred to as " The Tub, " this Mechanical Engineering major, with his subscription of G.Q. in hand (cowboy boots and long coat, of course) and the wisdom of a reserve CDR, was trans- formed from a loyal Auburn fan to the weekend wonder. Faster than the 6:30 mile? Able to leap o-course walls in a single bound? Certainly, but " the hook " was better known for girl punting, car detailing, sweater alterations, balcony tricks and green stuff at U. of D.. tabs at Winston ' s, car transmissions, pre-toumey bus cocktail parties, telling his folks everything, instant southern accent, being a secret member of the " I love Ohio " club, and twice being awarded the softball gold glove for originality. Four years have been a trip. Best of luck from one aviator to another, remember Y ' all — s. MLP. John Charles Woughter John arrived at Mother B prepared for a rigorous plebe year. Jamming oneself into a taxi with a dozen classmates 15 minutes before taps is no easy task. Tolerating one roommate who eats like a cow and another that just keeps eating is challenging, too. But nothing topped the challenge of fin- ding his brother ' s dormatory spring break at Syracuse. John left sweet 16 hoping that his new company would be more relaxing. These high hopes of leisure soon fell through the floor, since he only spent 2 of 4 semesters living in company area. One semester at the Coast Guard Academy temporarily brought him nearer to his girlfriend, now fiancee, Andrea. We will never know all that went on during those 4 months up north. Because things had still not slacked off when he returned, John joined the Batt staff. With his last mile run and PCR behind. John is now looking forward to a career in the Silent Service.

JItNAS.RAY Jerry Don Lenaburg Jerry found out just how tough Academy life could be when he started his naval career in Skate 8. He quickly developed an undying relationship with a certain sub- mariner named Melcher — from one stud U) another! What fun Jerry had with Chuckle, and vice versa. Also, the in- famous nickname, " BKAST " , originated from our plebe company, and is destined to follow nim forever, As we entered 22 together, we tried our lot at EE. but we both saw the light before the semester ended With hiHlory as bin new major and fiyro ah his HMimmate.

But he was most commonly referred to as Bulkhead. Walt has definitely been " the Brains of the Operation " since the beginn- ing of ' S.S. 1 really appreciated his help in keeping me out of the doghouse while keeping his own mark at .LO nr better. Driving his Mustang GT ' s to the limit (and sometimes through it!), Hommes has successfully avoided becoming an anchor announcement. Amidst the high speed adventure, Walt has kept his Ixtmbsighti on a truly terrific lass flown in Tampa (a short hop from his hometown of Gainesville, Fl()rida-) He and Marcy have an exciting life together to look forward to — if she can keep up while her man lays down the rubber road to freedom! Later, Bulkhead. William Gordon McNeilley Bill came Ui USNA to major in music. Many a night Bancroft vibrated to his talented sounds. His abilities captured the admirati()n of his friends, a ribbon in the last talent show, and cheers from the Dahlgren crowd. His undying fetish for keyboards was matched only by his search for shotglasses and I ' SPE kitchen uten- sils. Who has not known the terror of his taco cooker? Bill grew up on a perch in Cloud 9 flinging trash cans from 5-4 and Franklins on Sunset Blvd Several McNeillevisms and a Bahamas cruise later. Bill " found himself in search of a bet- ter companion. He ' s seen fireworks in C.S., machine guns in Rome, and pizza trucks in Georgetown but will leave happi- ly in the arms of a pretty young girl from Columbia who " wuvs him furrie much. Bill IS Norfolk bound and takes with him not only the makings o( a fine Naval of- ficer, but also the thoughts of many. Thanks for listening. Bill, vou are a good fnend. DAK. The Brigade: Ttventy-Second Company I Michael Francis Finch Mike came to the USNA from Milwaukee ith high ambitions, sandals, and two left feet. His inability to march compounded the terror felt by roommates who watched the talons descending from the rack above. Tired of impressing friends by peeling bananas with his feet and occasionally crawling across the hall to make offerings. Mike focussed briefly on his studies. A Trident Scholar and a member of the 62K weekend club, Haj has been referred to as the smartest Black N owner at USNA. Haj was destined to be a SWO the moment he bought the USS Hajmobile, a 95 MPH D- type which has since learned its way to Hood. There Mike found inebriation, his ring, and his wife to be. Mad Dog leaves the Academy with many goals met and many new ambitions formed. His Nerf basketball injuries healed and NL400 schedule mastered. Mad Dog takes with him memories of good times and good friends. Thanks for being there. Make it count. DAR. David Scott Ha an Dave, abandoning a real military school, came to USNA from the ski slopes of New Mexico and led a fitful four years adding 2+2. Youngster year was full of food ana not so fme women at his adopted spon- sor ' s house. That is until Maria strolled past our 2-0 scope ledge during Herndon flashing those incredible eyes. Love at first sight, no doubt. Second class summer came and we missed the Beach Boys but hit the P-Cola beaches — and the bars! (Thanks for the help). The summer was one run after another, depending on what state we were in. Next ac year provided trials of friendship, blind dates, and canoe races. The ring dance came none too soon emd we wondered who would get married first. First class year boasted of work at the Labs and a new Triumph (sorry about the vandals). The car memorized the route to Delaware by October! Good luck in the Air, my friend, and hold onto Maria. See you in Gandalara someday. WGM. Donald Wayne Herndon Don Herndon and why not. Don came to 22 by way of an ac board and Fun One. What can you say about a guy whose favorite movie is Excalibur and whose musical taste range from Wagner to Iron Maiden? Don excelled at sports and led the Company Heavy Weights to post- season play two years in a row. Don has used his academic knowledge of EE to turn his desk into a generator and your author into a resistor. What fun. Don ' s roommates have included the Sloth and Phil youngster year and Vince Gortho se- cond class year. That also proved to be the semester he met Lisa, his future 4000 series. And who could forget Ghostbusters at his sponsor ' s house. First class year Don found himself back with Phil as one of the " Big Guys. " Don has also tried to pursue anchor man. but this honor will slip through his fingers. Don, it ' s been great, though sometimes painful, knowing you and P-Cola iust wouldn ' t be the same without you. DM0. Thomas Richard Hubbard Hubbs came to this " college " ready to play football as Navy ' s big. thick, offensive guard. Fourth class year, Hubbs, between workouts and " free food " , found time to enjoy comearounds with Miss Webb. Youngster year. Hubbs realized he was the biggest man in the company. That winter. he wore out the tiles between his room and Kongo ' s, following his nose during study hour and eating up to 6 grilled cheese a night and drinking OJ bv the quart. Foot- ball dreams ended though as he injured his back. Cupid ' s arrow hit Hubbs second class year as he dated several kids. Tom ' s Iron-Duke could find its own way to Goucher at year ' s end. First class year he sailed to Puerto Rico and buried his ring in the surf. During ac year, Hubbs met his dream girl and reprogrammed the Iron- Duke to find RMWC. We wish Hubbs the best of luck on his ship. Its been fun living with you, Tom. The nukes got a good one this time. TWB Paul Dwight Newell Paul was a different breed of man. His claim to fame was California. He felt the need the urge to be different in every way. jHis lifestyle was hectic to say the least. [Most of his weekday nights were used for :sleeping,taping " King of the musical pirates " and philosophical discussions about the latest weekend exploits. The weekends, the " new " man appeared and |0h what a surprise he was!! When he felt ithe calling he would wear something uni- tque to befit his personality. He was con- Istantly in search of women with high ' mass, low moral fiber, and makeup as [carefully applied as his own. He had a ' fascination with women and stairs. He ' had an on-going " friendship " with a young lady, Donuls, and always waited for that |0700 walte-up but it never came. On the dighter side, Paul was a guy you could talk ' to and for that I thank him. Take it easy or anyway you can get it. RAT. David Martin Orans The human conductor and the " second most popular guy in the company, " Ace Gyro Orans cruised up from Ft. Lauder- dale for four years of countdowns: " That ' s our last Supe ' s call! " But his optimism and sense of humor got to us after a while. On- ly Paul and Paul seemed to be free of the spell. Dave was a good mid, except in the eyes of people with authority. He was famous for his rapport with his profs: " Sir, any other prof would have given me a B; " his rapport with the medical staff: " Sir, you ' re the only doctor that ' s doing this!; " and his rapport with his classmates: " All I want from you is a ' Hello, Dave. ' " He never had trouble with books, and was a good swimmer and tennis player; he coached batt tennis to a brigade cham- pionship. I wonder why he liked non-team sports? Dave will make himself a memorable addition to the flight com- munity. Good luck to a great guy, and welcome to the Dago Zone. DWH. Gary Wayne Parker Speed, women, and academic boards. Tnese were the major influences on Gary ' s life at the Naval Academy and all of them nearly killed him. Gary naturally had a taste for living on the edge of the envelope as his grades could attest. Academics forc- ed him to the ranks of the Brotherhood, where he tied his knot. As far as women go. Amy, Joyce, and U. of Maryland were a few on a never ending list that kept him going at times and almost broke him at others. His other love was satisfied by the Mustang GT. The only problem was that high speed, rain and the N.J. turnpike don ' t get along too well. At least now his rocket sleds come with ejection seats. Good luck, Gary. We will see you in the air. Holmes. Robert Charles Parker III Excluding his relatives, Bob is one of a kind. As a Rodent Scholar, Bob strove for mediocrity, especially as a member of the Brotherhood. His academics were only surpassed by his outstanding conduct record-the ring leader of the 62K weekenders. What baffled all of us was that Bob had this innate talent of knowing everyone in the Navy and having played every sport imaginable. By others though. his name was frequently associated with those of small borrowing animal family. Rat was by far the easiest guy to get along with and just the presence of The Chin could make one burst out in laughter. I wish him the best in life, and that he gets his own trenchcoat to soil. PDN.

Bradley Wayne Roberson " Stein " did nothing plebe summer, so was (s)elected Company Commander. He did such a good job leading now-famous raids and delegating to the 4-3 guys that he was Company Commander both semesters. The " Death From Above " raid resulted in his first ethics lecture. Youngster year saw Brad and I go to a company we hated as plebes. He was soon to receive Ethics Lec- ture 2 for the Hershey Kiss incident. Se- cond class year started with the " Thoughtful Efficiency " Lecture, followed by " Tibbs ' Dancing Girls. " (Ethics Lec- ture 3). But fate had it that " The Room with Chemistry " be formed, and Brad read about Ethics between restrict ion musters to see if the lectures were true. First class year started with the Expedition North and Brad ' s popularity going up when he went $ub$. Brad has been a great friend and roommate and I wish him the best. Tm sorry I liquidated his rack and passed him over in the Youngster Roommate Draft. GEP. Joycelin Robinson En Gorde! Joyce and I first met in the Ricketts parking lot as we were trying to learn to fence. (Go Zorro!) This athletic accomplishment was soon followed by the yearly (and only yearly) swimming workouts, and the " liain Dance " we per- formed at the beginning of second class year. Our most memorable time was spent on Spring Break in Florida our youngster year, courtesy of the BSS and LJM Travel Agency (the originators of the phrase, " see Florida on $.50 a day " ). Not having any Hghts or running water was OK, but our daily trips to Wards was embarrassing. We spent most of the time in the car as we went to Orlando, the Keys, and back to Orlando so Joyce could ride Space Moun- tain twice. On the way back we were awakened one morning as LJM screamed. " Oh my God! " Our lives passed before our eyes and we were relieved to know that we had only squashed an ar- madillo. Go Supply Corps; Fight! NAS. Charles Lee Schilling I first met Charlie the night of I-day when our squad leader, " the Tool, " sent me in search of a black pen.

Paul Gregory Gosnell If ever there were a person who deserved his diploma more than Paul, no one knows whom he could be. Goose has managed to stay in his major, computers, by virtue of sheer hard work — which describes many of the things he ' s begun in his life. Born to an active duty naval officer, the first part of Goose ' s life was spent skipping around. His clan eventually came to roost in Wilm- ngton, DE. and it was there that Paul got nvolved in numerous high school EGAs, ncluding founding the first coed cheerleading squad in his school. Goose came to USNA a worldly person in many respects, and his stint here has added im- measurably — cheerful people are like that. Perhaps that is what has given Paul the will to continue in cheerleading against criticism; strength of character. In any event, Goosehead selected Green Machine aviation in which to serve, and it will be my pleasure to serve with him. James. John Stuart Hayden I first met Stuart (a.k.a. John, Kirk. " Stu-Be-Wan " ) after Youngster Cruise. I still don ' t believe all those stories, yet some of his pictures just can ' t be denied. (Wow! You could shoot a line of bearing off of those . . . ) Navy Air just wasn ' t Stu ' s destiny, but he was still one of our first classmates to become a private fighter pilot. Remember the Falcon Roast? the unlit sailboat? How many hours of VTNA did you finally get? As his roommate. 1 was the convenient recipient of this Southerner ' s many attacks on drill. Stu kept busy over the years with fencing ( " Hack n ' Slash " ), rugby (is your name still printed on your back?), flying, and Tae Kwon Do (did that tree break too. or just your foot?) — If it was drill exempt, all the better! Stuart is now destined for nuke school and the depths of the sea. I wish my friend the best of luck throughout this career and advise Ivan and his brown-water buddies to steer clear! SJK.

A counter-of-days since 1-Day, Joe has been a bright, if little, spot in our lives - provided tne days-till-next-leave were le s than, say, two. Joe has independence and pragmatism that is formidable; in high school, he was a leader, a student. and a fighter. Since coming to IISNA, Big Joe has had it tough at times, but he ' s always come out smiling and swinging (I reflect here on the demise of a van wing window somewhere in Indiana). Finding that computer geeking was not for him, he switched to math geeking and has gotten along well enough to devote time to his empirical study of beer brewing. He stands now a veteran of a thousand bull sessions. .Surviving a last-minute block by Medical.

Edward Fyfe Walker 434 Thf liriKadf: Twenty-Third Company m Michael Frank Radice Mike was born in Lawrenceville, N.J. on 3 July 1965. There Mike had his first ex- posure to the naval service, sailing newspaper boats on the lake near his home. From these early triumphs in naval warfare, and by reading the business sec- tion of his fleet. Mike chose to become an Economics Major at the Naval Academy. With the virtue of frugality deeply ingrain- ed by his early ship building experiences, Mike applied this concept to all his under- takings. During his four years here, he col- lected (at no cost) alpha-coded uniforms spanning a decade. These same skills pro- ved valuable to 23rd Company when Mike was able to increase our standard of living and decrease our grades with the first big- screen TV in the Brigade. An entry on 1 1 Mike ' s resume should also include the 1 1 1985 Army party which was probably one of his greatest triumphs. Beware, if we 1 1 don ' t see Mike in the fleet 20 years from now, he ' ll be offering a great deal on car- riers. Jim P.

Mark Timothy Schreiber Born in sunny California, educated in same, nine years with the Boy Scouts and a rousing success at same, now an institu- tion at an Institution. The words somehow fail to describe the man. Schreibs is one of those fellas that does well at whatever he puts his mind to. Col- lecting knowledge is his forte, and he possesses the wisdom to make knowledge work for him — a point often missed in our age. We say that if one wishes to know something, one can simplify things greatly by asking Mark — in the rare case that he doesn ' t know offhand, he can find out im- mediately — usually through infallible logic. As with other things, Schreib ' s stint at USNA has been a success. He ' s kept his computer major easily, stuck through the tough times with the bike team, and pick- ed the deep-sea service as he yearned to do. I prophesize that he will retain both his drive and his idealism, and that he will always be putting both to excellent use — as usual. James. Brian Michel Shamblin Bom in 1962, Brian came to us from the Volunteer State with a quiet, relaxed Ten- nessee personality that USNA has yet to alter. (Jnce past the quiet exterior, one finds an individual with a quick mind, quiet wit, single-minded pursuit of his goals, competitive spirit, love of adven- ture, and an expert at using leisure time. After a short year-and-a-half stint as a student of nuclear engineering at U of T, Ramblin reported in with the rest of us in ' 83. He quickly set his sights on the dual goal of crew and academics, proving himself a capable athlete and chemist. After 2 years of crew, Brian changed direc- tion and started pursuing his interests in fast cars and fast bikes. First class sum- mer was spent educating the academicians at Los Alamos in Midshipman Capabilities. From those of us who have shared his friendship and hobbies he receives wishes for the best of luck as he depari for the Submarine Service. li The Brigade: Twenty-Third Company 435 The Class of 1987 Row One: John Baldwin, Janet Walters, Diana Farraday, Adrienne Marks, Suzanne Brown, Steve Ryan, Steve Locke, Tim Slough, Charles Wirth Row Two: Sheldon S.

" What ' s up homeboy ' . ' " and " Homeslice " still echo in the hall. He was ver ' photogenic.

Heavy bracelets (of the police type) and sharing is what Hood was all about. 2 c year and doucher was belter for Slick, who rarely stayed in the same room twice.

Following a rough (near fatal) plebe year, he met new roommates (Geoff and Sam) who motivated him to finally show his outstan- ding math abilities. How else would he have gotten Company Sub-commander — his grades jumped from a 1.6 to a 2.4 youngster year? Too bad he won ' t remember his roommates a month after graduation. When not pursuing his true love, math, Harry excels on the soccer field and sometimes the squash court (when playing Geoff). Otherwise he would rather be a couch potato, hanging around listening to archaic music and dreaming of Karen. Finally, upon graduation, this wild man can settle down with Karen and his truck and await his ultimate destination: teaching high school math. Too bad Navy. Keep on truckin ' . Chemo. GAH SJK. Suzanne Mary Brown Sue hopped on the Blue Gold carpet ride via N.H. After a brief stay in thirty- tool. Sue joined 24. Multi- faceted Sue took on all aspects of mid life with a vengeance including Army weekends. She came rugg- ed tough from the cold of New Hampshire all right. She once came back early from a camping trip claiming her partner quit on her. Righhht. When most had sleepers in their eyes. Squad Leader Sue would gleefully shout to her plebes. " Good Morn- ing Gentlemen! " Out of sync, they would reply, " Good Morning, Ma ' am. " Just think. Sue, your children ' s friends will be able to say, " Well your mom wears Army boots. " Only they ' ll be a part of the Green Machine as you will be. No turnin ' back — only forward for you.

FW FS God Bless you. C S. Rudv Joseph Crespin Rudy, Ruae-one. squirm. Quaaludes. Crespin was his name and California was his home. He always had a great tan which came half from his native land and half from always being on the bay; Rudy was a varsity sailor who loved the sport almost as much as his liberty. " Liberty won out in the end. " Quaaludes had a hard time doing things right the first time, be it taking a year to get tags for his car, breaking his leg skiing, or dating four girls from the same house from the same college. His biggest claim to fame was his youngster year room during dead week, but you might have to ask Gabe about that. In the end Rude-one got what he always wanted: a fast car: " Mazda RX7. " a West Coast ship, and a shiny new SWO mug to Lake to sea and work on his SWO-gut-U)-be. RFXS. Paul Gerard Curran Paul left the farmlands of N.C. to attend NAPS. With his Uct. athletes mouth, and timely quotes, he quickly impressed his co. ofcr. His plebe year went well once he got " Sirs " and " Ma ' ams " straight. Paul quick- ly impressed his youngster roomies with his feet, study habits, starburst, gunginess. and visits from Dino. His numerous adventures include winter cliff-scaling (poison ivy), raiding YMCAs. racing police and ninia skiing. With the unfortunate death of his roommate and close friend. Roger Cundiff, he moved in with Pat (again) and Gary (Ron graced us later). RAs, stupid faces and favorite noises were soon rampant in the room. Paul was known and loved in the room and co. for his slippers and his card-throwing ability. First class year Paul put 19,000+ on his Celica and loved every minute of it. Paul and Sherry were inseparable, and he loved being awakened by her calls. Good luck in Quantico and all that you do. The Fellas.

Samuel James King Sam got the best deal out of the four years of training, hard work, and integrity. His condition forced him to always be in the vicinity of a swivel chair, a TV, and Laura. Can that be better for your health? Well, if anyone can say they earned that honor, Sam can. As champion of the 4330 squash invitational and an all-time Trivial Pur- suit great, Sam will have no trouble sur- viving in that dog-eat-dog world of Naval Supply. Sam ' s cheerful nature has led us to intellectual debates over such crucial matters as Blazing Saddles, Ty Cobb, egg rolls, the year 2001, and Geoffs crossword puzzles. Admittedly, Sam is a connoisseur of sports trivia and good King Hall food, but then there ' s music. Between Geoff and Sam, this flower child has learned to tolerate anything. Sam ' s not all bad; something must be said for a guy who will drive to Hoosierville just for a glimpse of his sweetie. I just hope Laura can put up with you as well as we have. HWB.

She stayed faithful to USNA ninning all 4 years, something the rest of us can ' t claim. Not only that, she acquired several KCAC honors. I ' m glad after toying with the USMC you selected NFO.

David Andrew Welch For Dave, deciding to attend USNA meant leaving the corn fields of Peoria. IL for the big city of Annapolis. After the long trip. Dave was confronted with his first real ex- posure to the Navy. Yet. while still ad- justing to the sight of water. Dave was already recognized as one tnily a head above most of his peers. And although his grades tended to reflect his love for technical courses. Dave managed to im- press everyone with his leadership enough to hold M-striper positions 1 c year, in- cluding Reg. and Brig, staff. Dave still found time to enJ4)y his rack, basketball, a good book by Faulkner, and an occasional game of racquetball. For Dave, service selection was never a big problem. By 1 c year. Dave was an enthusiastic Surface Warrior with his sights set on Little Creek and the wurl.l ,.f C.-Kors No doubt we ' ll see Dave with l.l : stripi ' s ;i ;Hin " I press on toward the goal lor the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

" Hawaiian Ryan " ar- rived to us with golf clubs in one hand, tanning lotion in the other. Laid back, easy going, he was always looking for a good party. He always had the ability to slip in the back door. A math major, you could find hira proving 2+2=5. " Who said I can ' t add? Where is my HP? " Grades went down, golf scores went up, but the good times were never missed. A regular at Dahlgren, his innocence became a hit with all the bovine species. He packed away the clubs and picked up powerlifting. His dedication saw him at the Collegiate Na tionals being honored as an All-American. When not in the gym. you could find him at the Flight Deck with a beverage of choice, at Maggies, or giving EI to Bob. I Believe! I wish I could be that little angel on your shoulder. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Remember, wherever this Navy takes you, you will always be my Godson. CPRP. James Arthur Schreiber " Schreibtool " came to us from Exit 16W, and, boy, was he proud of it. No one knows more about 2.0 and go than Jimmy. Always striving to make life as hard as possible but never letting morale go down, Schreibs will be particularly remembered for enforcing the nightly study breaks throughout the company while on sear- ches for food, philosophical banter, and anything more interesting than books. WE ' s were sparse early in his upperclass life, but Schreibs somehow managed to fall in love with " Phred. " He was the only 3 c who knew the days ' til our graduation. Fortunately Phred was gone 2 c year, and soon entered the ever-lovely Janice. Schreibs wears his " M " sweater with its 4 stars with pride, since he was able to put up with Al for 4 straight years. Schreibs enjoys traveling in his ' Stang and no distance or time is too great for him, a necessity since WE ' s were a rare occur- rence for him. Which will be better: a sum- mer at Newport or 2 years in Norfolk? GEG. Timothy Dehaven Slough " They won ' t cut my hair, it ' s pretty short . . . " typified Tim ' s perception of plebe summer and the military in general as he entered the hallowed halls. No clue . . . Talk to coach, he ' ll stop the yelling; yeah, that ' s the ticket. Sluff came to the Academy to play squash and get an educa- tion. He got more of both than he wanted of either. Punching from Aero was a downer for Tim but he soon realized the bennies of being a scientist and capitaliz- ed: racking, lifting, golfing, oh yeah, and squash, too. The academy suddenly became a little more bearable. Ring Dance brought a special friend into Tim ' s life. First class year saw him snag the first flight school class, earn All-American honors in squash, and the title the " Duke " at Lewis 3rd. If the Academy couldn ' t kill Tim ' s vibrant happy-go-lucky personality, nothing will. That ' s good. Hey, Tim. can I borrow the Bike? I ' ll be careful, promise ...SSJ CMG. Rayome Francois Soupiset Rayome (Bonz, Hun) didn ' t have a very hard time in choosing where to go to col- lege; I think living in the yard had something to do with it. Although he had the lowest SAT scores in Maryland history, someone on the admissions board must have been like a father to him — or maybe father-in-law. When Bonz arrived at USNA he knew that he was going to be a Marine, but after a while he outgrew the urge to die for his country. Rayome can most be remembered for knowing everyone and everyone knowing him. This, however, does have its disadvan- tages, such as meeting the Dant at the Mall on Friday night, as a second class. Rayome was an outstanding leader as shown by the company caravan to Towson every weekend. R-JC. Charles David Wirth Chuck came to the Academy from Hamp- ton. Va. An army brat, " Chuckles " was the company Einstein. Well, he was a physicist, anyway. Chuck had a taste for progressive music and a fetish for ducks. Youngster year Chuck paved the way to his 1 C job as conduct officer. He won a black N after " having a few " underage at the conduct officer ' s house before watch inspection. He did not lose his taste for hops after that, though. He has been known to disappear for hours at Goucher with no one knowing his whereabouts, in- cluding himself. Youngster cruise saw Chuck in Canada where he " held colors " for a local pub. Chuck loved Army-Navy games. He almost forgot to come back 2 c year. The only thing Chuckles loved more than grain derivatives was the blue magnet. He could sleep for 3 straight days without a break, and he always snored at least 3 decibels louder than a jet. Chuckles left the Academy for San Diego with relief, but he remains in our memories of USNA. JLS. The Brigade: Twenty-Fourth Company 445 Fall Staff Battalion Commander Erik F.

' 454 Ihe HriKixIc: Tirenty-h ' iflh ( ' om mny Anthony John Bradley f I could oimpletely describe Tony to you think you would seek his friendship, try marry your daughter to him, hire him nto your company, or choose him to fight longside you in combat. Tony often won- ered if he was born in the right time eriod. I think he would have felt more at ;ome mounted on a great stallion, wield- ng a blooded sword as he conquered Asia longside Alexander the Great. Tony 3und an outlet for his adventurous spirit (1 competitive karate and the dream of ibtaining the title " Marine Corps Fighter ilot. " As much as Tony is a fighter on one ide, he is as much a romantic on the ther. Tony ' s love for fashion, dancing, ,nd the female body, coupled with a flashy ardrobe. winged feet and " melt-your- ieart " charm, left .a long trail of broken [learts. I ' ll always remember the large por- tions of our study hours spent discussing ' ,ex, politics, money and sex. Look out orld . . . here comes a lion! Michael Joseph Brooks After time in the fleet Brooksy ended up at Naps where his experience and maturity allowed him to excel. On entering the Academy he was lucky enough to be put in the infamous Stalag 17. Like us all. he was scrambled into 25 3 c year where he ex- perienced a variety of roommates. From the late Grant Bates to his first class roommates, he ' s seen an Irishman, a com- pany commander, the Cuban and others. Second class year found Brooksy swamped in physics. It ' s a good thing he can study in a storm because he had to often. It wasn ' t all work as a girl from Hood and some of ' 86 (Redman) can attest. First class year started with high expectations and a light academic load. From car problems to ser- vice selection decisions (Nuke or Fly). Mike managed to have a lot of fun and remain the loyal, reliable good friend he always will be. He can be confided in and trusted for good advice always. Watch out P-cola. a great man comes vour way- FXF NJD JNW MCS. John Anthony Burke John is one of the most loveable persons you could ever have the pleasure to spend time with. His warmth and friendliness seem to pervade the atmosphere around him. John suffered much anxiety during his USNA days as he was restrained from ready access to the items that were so essential to his well being, namely, cold beer, beach sand under his feet, and the comforts of a female body. John is your basic pleasure seeker. Like some exper- imental lab animal, to get John to do any- thing of an exertive nature i.e., exercise or study, you must first convince him that such behavior will ultimately yield pleas- urable results. Translated- food, women, or the thrill of flying mach 2.0. John plans to fly for the Few and the Proud after grad- uation. And though we ' ll be apart many times, I ' ll always cherish the close friend- ship we ' ve developed, and look forward to many shared experiences in the future. Michael John Carroll Mike came to us from Huntington Beach. Califfjrnia. via the Citadel. He enjoyed his Knob year at the Citadel so much that he decided to try Plebe year at USNA. During his time here at Canoe U, he has become known to all as Hacker, Charlie Brown and The Slice. His love for pain, pun- ishment and suffering was only marginally surpassed by his love for fantasy books, computers. D D and playing with the hem of his t-shirts. It was not until 1st class year that he decided to show eve- ryone what he was made of by assuming leadership roles and performing chippen- dale routines after a few rum cokes. We wish the " little baby " the best of luck in the corps; after all. " Its not easy being green . . . specially when you have a weak- ness for women in uniform. " PS. I don ' t owe you anything!! R.G. (Robert Allen Ellis ijowboy Bob, The wannabee Texan from i ' lorida has found his way in and somehow through a tough military life. Amongst his ' [nany visits to Goucher (he has had his leart broken many times.) he managed to ;queeze in a few weekends with his friends ere. And talk about women, he has had is share. Since Artie finally found his urpose in life, I guess Sweet pea is next, j ' oo bad someone special wasn ' t as madly |i love with him as he is with her, else he ijo could be having a June week wedding h May! This Floridian has taken many riends home with him over the years, and ill have seemed to have enjoyed it,except I )r Rob himself. Always vowing to never 1) anything with Devil, he goes out with ' evil, and comes back vowing to never do , n l:hing with Devil again. Guess he ' ll nev- T learn. Rob, though being born 600 years 10 late, seems to have found his place in ' ciety (USMC), where he will definitely ave his mark. RSV. Francis Xavier Fitzpatrick FX came to the Academy from Potomac, Maryland after 13 years of preparation via NAPS. A native of the 12th company. Franny came to the 25th company as a youngster where he discovered a new spori:, a new company officer, a 3000 se- ries, a new girl (little did he know!), and a new major. Second class summer con- firmed Fran ' s interest in the Marine Corps as his T-2 flight in P-cola tested his ab- dominal fortitude. Academically. FX be- came a member of the Diorio-Fitzpatrick " comeback kids " duo as a result of his efforts in EE. Fran also held his own when it came to partying as Ring Dance, Frost ' s party, and the hotel room can attest. Over- all, FX ' s pleasant personality and athletic prowess will always be remembered. In him, the Marines definitely got what they wanted, a good man. Good luck Fran . . . Semper Fi. MJB and NJD. John Thomas Franchi For those of you who don ' t know Jack but probably have heard him . . .In his wild and single days Jack had many interesting dates; the most memorable of which was homecoming with Flip. Stories of corn- fields, bald heads, and odiferous scents, always told us that his time was well spent. The Manor and Old Grad ' s led to one adventure after another, some of which he couldn ' t tell even his understanding moth- er. Jack could be found deahng in hoops, or cracking a Bud with Gran and Poops. Good times with Beth left Jack all a- glitter. while long distance phone bills left Mom mighty bitter. Jack, as they say. now hits the fleet, with a wife, a beer, and the Navy at his feet. We wish Jack and Beth, his beautiful wife; a warm, wonderful, and bubble-filled hfe, JES MCC. John David Fulp J.D. is the tree, and I the little boy who lives down the street from it. The tree is big, strong and wise. When I am tired and the rigors and frustrations of life seem unbearable, when I am confused over de- cisions or wrong decisions, or when I am depressed and feeling low. I will lean on the tree and listen to the wind blow through it ' s branches and feel better. When the sun is too hot and noon is ap- proaching, when I have done all I can do to keep myself from burning and have failed, I can always depend on the tree to offer me shade. When it is time to go out and play, when life seems care free and I want to be bold and adventurous where is the first place I run to? My tree. That tree and I are much more than friends. It has always been there for me and, God. I hope it always will be. I love that tree. AJB.

Study hour was always, and once his nose was in a book, reality and Greg became strangers again. Regular sleep was important too.

Favorite quotes from Greg include: " Don ' t you ever study? " , and " I ' m glad I ' m normal. " Greg was a nice guy, though, he could get along with anvb idv and was a lot of fun away from school.

Dubbed the Kodak Kid. Dom had a knack for making trivial encounters sound outrageous. Looking at classic Ko- dachrome snapshots from Dom ' s single, wild crazy days reveals; the invasion of Europe by forklift. young bimbos, the turf- field, spitters. the zone, beef bean burritos. Clarke ' s, the Silver Bullet. These were times when Dom could be heard saying such famous lines as. " Give me strength. I need a beer! " Dom ' s emaciated wrestling days were a mix of grueling workouts, wild times, and injuries. After wrestling burn- out, Dom ' s life turned to the Meatball.

We know other things were curtailed after you broke your wrist; oh yeah, lax got a bit tougher, too. So you channeled your energies toward other endeavors; namely, Karren and Engineering for Poets. As ENS Chili you decided the Corps was for you (but not quite as you expected). Your truck was a welcomed addition (and subtraction) at Army ' 86 when you brought the party to your room and then cleared away everything but the chicken bones when Smith and Wesson made an appearance. Whether as laundry bag rep during Plebe detail or as President of Lions Club, you ' ll always be remembered as a soft-spoken, considerate Gentleman. Good Luck to you and Karren. The Crew. Thomas Walter Wagner Tom came to USNA from a small town in ew Hampshire via NAPS and the Fleet, vhich he always reminded us about. From jhe start his interests were a source of amusement to t,he company. His private :novie collection helped people avoid stu- .lying. Since excessive studying was not or him. Tom found a home in Sampson. : unning the Juice Gang and instructing |tcuba classes kept him busy when he was (lot entertaining Coach Lentz in the after- aoons. No one ever doubted he had some !)f the best toys to keep him busy in his ' ipare time. When it came time for Service Selection he got a Frigate homeported in Newport, two hours from home, so he ■:ould spend winters playing in the snow hat he is so fond of. It was always in- teresting having Tom around, and his •mechanical abilities were often helpful. We wish Tom the best of luck in the ; iture. DCB.

With his prowess in backgammon and b-ball. he earned the name BKOWN. He took up J C year with Mark and Joey, and sur ' ived ego ' s nerf hoops, and a duck-and-weave game with school. In and out of class he mastered the art of MAX HACK. I C year found Joe still with Joey and worlds of time and a taste in clothes. In the short span of Ist semester he perfected his favorite past times, buying and partying. Yes. as a senior he left quite a few impressiims on Philly walls, ceilings, and in his checkbook.

For the future, Iithleen, I wish you nothing but hap- [less. I ' ll miss you! JMG. James Michael Byrne Jim. a southern boy from Jacksonville, spent a year at Auburn before taking on USNA. Being a bit more than they could handle in 32, " the Pigman " was destined for something big. Scrambled to 27, " the good ole boy " gave those he met a feeling of trust and confidence, and led him to solving many of the problems of his friends (and a few people he didn ' t know). Jim ' s country-boy-image (sitting around in red longjohns w cowboy hat boots) and modesty hid his outstanding leader- ship abilities. Not quite in the top 100 academically, someone wisely went against the norm to make Jim the 1 Midn in the country. Always looking for a challenge, M Capt Byrne took on many diverse activities; sea-wall running, air- borne, Severn River swims, and boxing, though boxing had to take a back seat to preserve his face for his 1 girl, Becky ( " the wife " ). A loyal friend and outstan- ding leader. The Marines are no longer looking for a few good men: they ' ve found Jim Byrne. KAB. Thomas Stephen Coyne Tom ' s boyhood dream of coming to Navy was put on hold, as he didn ' t make it on the first try. He didn ' t take the hint, and his dream became his nightmare. Freshman year was uneventful. A movie of Slob ' s ;! c year could be called " Escape from Carpenter. " Coyner ' s junior year was worse! Problem areas included: 4 5000 ' s, Rent-A-Cops at U of D, the inability to distinguish white Dodge Darts from Blue Firebirds, 150 days in grease uniform, and no X-mas leave. During a less hectic 2nd semester he excelled in Varsity Lax, ac- quiring the nickname " Spiceman " . A.B. ' s senior year was his ' oest. He had his weekends and his ' Vette, when it wasn ' t in Jersey or Mass. His newest nickname. Schlep, was acquired as he succeeded in breaking every car he came in contact with. Tom was also lucky that girls would fall in love with him at the mere sight of him dancing (a true chip ' n dale), and if that didn ' t work the rap and rain surely would. Joseph Adam DeLeon Joey came to us from N. Tijuana (CA) via NAPS and 18. Joey was easy-going during piebe year, except when it came to AA. Maybe Joey was too laid back; he almost made the square root club. School was never high on Joey ' s list, and many nights with Dr Data were spent as a ' ster. The B-master came back to haunt Joev again as a 1 c. STUDY, JOE! 3 c year brought a new company and ' HI Red, another veteran of the Bob E. The tomb of Gar (thanks Dano), DCs blood, and Dirks were just a few of the highlights. The only thing that kept Joey going for four years were dreams of Archie the 66 convertible ' stang back home. As 2 c year started. Brown entered Joey ' s life. Sleep became the passion, but will you ever forget the night Thoid beat Vo in Nerf Hoops? Joey also became stockholder of Black ' n ' Decker. For Joey the Boat School was exactly that. Lookout, Stein (place hand on forehead), here ' s Joey D with the top down and the shades on. MDG. Ii« 1 1 Michael Walter Flood Jperman — no, Tom Cruise — no, Mike l)od — came to Navy afler a year of hard rk at NAPS (he almost even (iduated). With this head start he rose to top of his plebe class; however, his stay ithe top was short-lived. Plebe year was ■■■elatively quiet one as Mike lived " har- jniously " with George and Brad. Then •iaster struck — scramble. Mike was ■flcomed to 27 with a Form-2 on his first ; it was a bad omen. The next two «irs were spent UNSAT, restricting, and ng gymnastics, not necessarily in that ler. With all his troubles behind him, ke was ready to enjoy his 1 c year. Mike pezed through without a hitch (unless ju consider academic probation, a couple (performance boards, an honor board, 60 (ys restriction, and an ack board hit- jes). Mike persisted with the help of his ' nily, friends, and the love of his life, ' e. On 20 May he went on his way to Insacola. Jeanne Marie Grabo ' wsky Jeanne came to us from Danville, CA. She started in 4th Company, and moved to 27. Yet her heart remained true to those of her former home. On a typical weekend plebe year, one could find Jeanne either returning from crew, participating in a legs contest, or marching tours (but hav- ing fun every minute). Jeanne saw the hard and fast rules of the Admin-Conduct System merely as obstacles in the path of fiin. Jeanne returned 3 c year with the goal of continuing her search for excite- ment. Starting with her love life, GD still hung on (though long gone), Edwin Dudley made her laugh, and Michael K. captured her heart (and hand). Despite her beginnings, Jeanne is now a one-man woman (?!). A near 5000 brought a few grey hairs; that ' s the price you pay for a wild Halloween night in the jungle. From that point it was college life for Jeanne! I am very lucky to have been a part of this; I ' ll miss you!! KMB. James Stanley Green Jim always wanted to come to the Naval Academy. Growing up in a Navy family, the only question was what branch of the Navy would be privileged to get him? That was decided for him. Due to his countless allergies, the Supply Corps would receive his services. Jim wants to be the toughest supply officer in the fleet. He is very con- cerned with his appearance. Jim PT-ed in his room, complete with photographer, capturing that flexing hulk on film forever. Jim ' s survival knife, named Mike, bolsters Jim ' s hopes to be the baddest in the Corps. Jim performs tricks with Mike, and he has only cut himself once. Thank God Klaus was on hand with the Band-Aids! Jim now controls himself with Mike. Jim also has a lighter, less physical side. He is always up for a few beers or a trip to VA Beach with the boys (and Sherman) to down some tequila. There is only one question left to be asked of Jim. " Where is the " stang? " JPD. Mark Douglas Groothuis Mark came to us Dy way of LA beaches and 18. He (lew through through the Stalag by the grace of team tables and a fast chop. ' Ster Cruise found Mark Hawaii bound (less SF piers). The BOB E, Waikiki, falling lockers, and Hotel St. What a time! Early HAPPY HOUR! The scramble slid him into Stud Street, still with Joey, plus ' lil Red. Mark passed the year with school, his own music, and Dirks. Don ' t squeeze too hard! And how about that PIN ? What money?!? 2 C year found him a new roomie. Y ' o. What a fun-filled year! Big heads, little room. Nerf Hoops? With strong words and hot breath, he inducted the likes of Gentry and Mawee. 1 C year found him a new roomie (the JB Railroad), Pit Daddy, and Three Stripes. Patience and Jaimi pulled him through the years. Through hard days, dads AA tix, g-ma ' s cookies, and par- ties, he ' s stayed one of the boys. He came here a budding Hornet driver and will be a good one. Good luck and FLY HIGH. JAD.

Mike ' s an easy guy to live with, though at first it seemed like I was living by myself. You see, Mike lacked the gift of gab and what he did say usually revolved around the hum-drum ins and outs of USNA life. Luckily. (I guess) this passed and Mike turned into the dreaded 27th Company gossip hound. Mike soon quit the hall rat club and became a frequent patron at Maggie ' s and various G-town hot spots (you sly dog). One thing about Mike — he never had women problems — he avoided it by not talking to any. But I ' m sure he ' ll blossom m P-cola (watch out girls!). I know Mike will be a success no matter where he goes or what he does. He ' s a good friend and an All-American Nice Guy. I couldn ' t have had a better roommate and the Navy couldn ' t get a better pilot, (jood luck buddy- knock ' em dead (at Mach 2.2)! CMP. Curtis Mark Permito Curt came to the Academy from the south good half of Jersey, and came into 27 a half hour late and a set of whiteworks short. Although the numerous regulations were at first hindrances to be avoided, he eventually learned to live within the system. Youngster year was the Year of the Woman for Curt, and it was difficult to keep them straight. From Jane, the nice girl back home, to Carol, the wild Dahlgren girl, to Jenny, the Texas tamale, to Joanna and the Big Chill weekend. Curt was never a one-woman man. Second class year he finally met Darlene, and began to settle down. Looking for a career that would best suit the military bearing that the Academy has instilled in him, Curt decided to join the Marine Corps. The Corps couldji ' t be getting a finer officer, and I couldn ' t be losing a better room- mate. Best of luck to both you and Darlene, both in Quantico and the rest of your lives. MAN. Michael Anthony Polcari The villagers waved torches. Iraclop ' s cof- fin was empty. He shuffled from a small town in West Virginia to a stone castle on the Severn. At night virgins are scarce, so he passes the time drawing EE spider diagrams neither Ren nor Laf could understand. The vampire did the night fantastic at a plebe year squad party and found himself suffering the sun most of se- cond semester. Youngster year. Iraclop had a bad job of putting up with the golfer — tennis pro — Bliall stud of all eternity. With red knee pads and Velcro tie shoes, he will shuffle south to Orlando for glow- in-the-dark lessons. EAL LJL.

He endured Plebe year. Duke T-shirts, and Dan ' s drunken evenings. Then came 3 C year, 28, and the man who defied all myths. The next three years were a blast. There were late-night hoops, after- evening-meal soccer, nights on the ledge with the ever-reliable Dan, visions of being a math major, the reality of Phy-Sci, and the urge to leave, as well as the 5000 he got for staying. As a 2 C he and the " Boys " became one; EE, road trips, totaled cars, Howie puke, dart games, Crossbows and Catapults, CDR ' s row, N.J, and Hood, were all a part of the fun. 1 C year brought a platoon, the " Stang, " responsibility, per- sonal growth, and a semester without me. Ken endured. Kak stayed, and he and the " Boys " were soon parted. Yet all is well, and our hero, Napken, will fulfill his dream and become a naval officer, as he so desperately desired.

On varsity squash his relentless effort has paid off hy giving him the best varsity record. His dedication to higher learning coupled with habitual studying helped him to get D ' s in both Physics and Electrical Engineering. He even managed to make the Dant ' s list one time. Finally, his social life is the envy of all. From fast cars, to fast women, to lots of plastic, he has managed to survive through the years. At service selection he made the big decision to become a fly boy. He hopes to fly F-14 ' s off of carriers. He has been a good roommate and friend. Jeffrey Dennis Stec Jeff came to us from the cold reaches of Utica, Michigan. Being number six out of eight children, he was able to adjust to the crowded conditions of Bancroft. A truly nice guy, Jeff could always be depended on for a good laugh, even if he didn ' t unders- tand the joke. That ' s what made Jeff such a nice guy; his innocence and humility always came out in his quiet character. As things would have it, Jeff became Mr. In- tensity for awhile, " Lucifying " for hours upon hours of hard study. He is driven by an incredible discipline and a confident at- titude, and yet when it comes to having fun or having an open ear, or being a friend, he could always be relied on. Jeffs simple and tranquil behavior is only the surface of a deep and thoughtful in- dividual. Jeff is like a deep and calm river with strong hidden currents and life. There is no doubt Jeff will make a fine pilot as he ventures out from here. Thanks, Jeff, for being you. TF. Steven Joseph Yoder Hailing from Fayetteville.

Drawn by a need to see the world and a love for " Old Spice, " Mike came to Navy. It was here Mike developed his prone posi- tion (seated at his Compaq computer with a green glow on his face). For the next year Hobble would develop new interests; YP ' s. Sup ' s List, and tension. Having survived plebe year. Mike had only three more easy years to study and work on his computer degree.

Robert Anderson Goodbody Rob ' s goals for his plebe year first became evident to us when he announced that he could not wait to party with the guy in the next room. Unfortunately for him this was during a platoon wnde discussion with his platoon leader Zoey. Rob spent most of that year struggling with academics and debating with his first class as to the im- portance of sailing: " I got a regatta, Sir! " Rob took youngster year well, enjoying his drinking rights, and an exclusive apart- ment on the Severn? Don ' t ask him about second class year. Marine option cruise in Hawaii tanned Rob a new shade of green; some of us still believe it was from too many Mai tais. Good luck in the corps! EG. Thomas Copp Graves Tom came to us from nearby Chevy Chase, which was farther away than the map shows due to his grades. Tom, Lee. and Greg made it through plebe year; Lee left but was missed. A recruited soccer player, Tom ' s chronic injuries led him to managing the Tennis team, for which he proudly wears his " N. " Only those who got to go out with Tom and Jodi ever saw him on the weekends, the rest had to settle for his obnoxious presence in the hall. Seriously, Willis was always willing to buy a round for the guys. He fought through three years of grades, accumulating a few drops of gravy. 1 c year, Tom learned to get better grades by postponing NL till 2nd semester. Off to sail the seven seas, we wish Tom and Jodi the best of luck. GNH JPC. Louis John Gregus Louie came from the breeding ground of midshipmen. New Jersey, who knows what exit. He arrived at age thirty-five with the desire to be a company com- mander and a SWO daddy. By senior year he had run out three roommates and was well on his way to success as a strip er. Damn, along came Chris and Al and neither one would leave. Oh well, then we ' ll have to be friends — three egos, one world; TIGHT FIT! Youngster year meant the ' 65 pony (LOU, It ' s December and the top ' s down!) and trips to Schaefer ' s where Lou picked up the first in a series of " bad colds. " It ' s OK. Lou, " The Thing That Ate Delaware " won ' t follow you West. We had some pretty great trips, too; The Magic Boat was truly a " Magic Evening.

Roy Rodriquez Ledesma Playboy Roy made that long trip to An- napohs from the suburbs of Los Angeles with a year-long stop in Newport, where he proved that 12 hours of sleep a day is what you need to finish at the top of your class. Roy was recruited to play hoops; however, things didn ' t work out, and Navy missed a great outside shooter. Roy thought that being an engineer was for him until he faced Statics and Graphics and decided that he ' d prefer more time for sleep and hoops, and switched to being a mathematician. Roy wasn ' t the Playboy for nothing and his ever-present smile (and some beers) could start a conversa- tion with anyone. Roy was also known as Julie, company cruise director, the intrigu- ing Brown Hornet, and a " hell on the Hudson " champ as LF (Class of ' 10) knows. Playboy Roy is finally heading back west to (California (San Diego) for some sun, fun. Coronas, and to be a sur- face " warrior. " Good Luck, Buddy! JFM. Michael John Lombardo USNA is a place of change for all those who attend . . . Mike is no exception to the rule. Via the great plebe scramble, Mike found himself surrounded by a new group of classmates who quickly befriended the naive " Lump " from Connecticut. Lump ' s youngster year was characterized by an in- fatuation with a certain plebette who finally consented to a date after Hemdon . . . His female frustrations were just beginning. Second class year EE blues led Mike to the Ac-Board and resulted in another LTM. Mike ' s bout with prohibi- tion ended on his 21st B-Day with his first taste of alcohol.

James Faulk Merna Although Jimbo has a short trip to USNA from hia home in Lanham, Maryland every weekend, it took him a year in Newport to get here and find his first love — sailing. Graduating in the top of his claas at NAPS, he had plenty of time to brush up on his billiards. Jimbo ' s hard work in academics and sailing at USNA paid off for him; as he received his nuke bonus (SWO style); and a few trophies for getting a good tan, going to yacht club par- ties, euid even for winning a few races. He was also known to be a " shmoove " operator, especially after a few beers with the boys; however, he thought it was time to hang up the ole topsidera and " shmooveness " for his true love. Shannon. The nuke bonus is now a diamond ring, and I hope to see Jim and Shannon down in Mayport. Good Luck, Buddy! RRL. ji The Brigade: Twenty-Ninth Company 495 ■w Keith K.

By forsaking weekends find i those cute Maryland women, he was jnehow able to make it through all those nderfuUy easy courses. He came to us m the far-off land of Oregon. He says somewhere between Washington and lifornia, but I still can ' t find it on the p. The Boy Scouts have their motto, ' Naval Academy has its motto, and An- has his.

Good luck to you ' d Cindy! EH. Danford Elias Sammons Dan opted for the relaxation of Annapolis during the summer of ' 83 rather than the excitement of Newport during the Cup races. Having the special talent for bring- ing attention to himself, Dan made the most out of plebe year. He was so efficient in the management of his time, he was often seen practicing his manual of arms while doing chow calls. Even as a sophomore, Dan continued the traditional " Message to Garcia. " So determined to get down to Lauderdale, he and his roommate sold their broken-down heap for $100 and hitched the rest of the way. As a junior he sprouted academically but received con- tinual reminders that he was attending a military institution. Finally, as a senior, he used his military prowess to become the best wardroom president " Stand in Line " ever had. And with tutoring received from his roommates he occasionally partakes with bikers with butterfly and rose tat- too ' s. Good luck in Orlando, Dtin. Thomas Michael Schwab Tom came to us from St. Charles. IL, a place renowned for its beaches, which nelps explain his incredible swimming ability. He threw himself into academics for two years until he decided that there was something (someone?) more worthy of his time. Second class year brought the happy campers, Greg Harris training, tmd his lowest grades ever. Does anyone see any connections? As a firstie Tom learned about life, love, and the pursuit of stripes, he racked up three of them and took full advantage of all the benefits that came with them. He impressed the entire Brigade of Midshipmen, and the band, with the adjutant strut at par ades. We finally convinced him of the value of going the Southern way and there ' s still hope for him if he can avoid being too weak. We wish him luck as a Nuke SWO and we ' re all sure he ' ll do " real good, real good. " Remember Tom. as long as it seems like the thing to do, do it and we ' ll all be back at Davis soon. BMP ' 87. Michael Thomas Sheerin Like his father. " Michael T " joined the Navy. He began his career with the BOOST program in San Diego, where he grew attached to the finer aspects of west coast Ufe. Mike left SD for Canoe-U with a little Southern CA still in his blood. With patience and hard work. Mike was off to USNA. Mike taught us all something about integrity and honor as the Brigade Honor Chairman. " The Man, the Myth " also chaired our Wednesday Afternoon " Social Club. " He learned an appreciation for " Newton " and Kirchoff. Not to miss any opportunity, Mike learned how squids do things while spending two weeks on a yawl to Bermuda . . . pretty ruff huh, Mike? Pensacola should be a welcomed break for the Marine ' s perfect pilot. Mike you ' ve been a friend and a source of sanity to those of us who know you well. Your destiny is sure to be marked with great success. So we said to ourselves . . . selves, we ' ll miss you!

Thai summer was supposed to clear up your service selection, nut Mike was more con- fused than ever, because he wanted to do everything. That summer we met Matt and had a lot of good times. Second Class ac-year. Mike realized that physics was not an easy major, but he did have time to join the bowling team and earn a letter sweater. First Class year brought us more money, and cars to spend it on. For Mike, this combination led to weekly trips lo Pennsylvania or Virginia. Finally, when service selection came up, Mike realized that surface line really is mighty fme. So in closing, to a good friend, best of luck in all you do. JEP.

However. a mechanical engineering degree took its toll. He survived the rocket, cables, and occasional all-nighter getting a project done ( " team Xerox " = Kathy, Jon, Geoff. Chris and Jason!). Then Jason ' s eyes went bye-bye. and the Navy didn ' t look too bad after precoms. In fact, it looked pretty damn good (especially that $4,000 check!). It ' s a good thing he went nuke. too. He owns the worid ' s most expensive Triumph Spitfire! (Countless weekends and repair and parts bills will attest to that!) He was the resident zookeeper in 30, with a mouse, crab, and an occasional insect. Louis and Jason were inseparable, as the group picture will show. (Say Cheese. Lou- is!) Anyway, four years here had its good times, its bad times, but mostly it was just a royal pain. Bye all! P.S. Rudes. I ' m still sorry about your dog! Robert Scott Harrington Bob entered the Academy right from the enlisted ranks of the Fleet. He has always been older than the rest of the class so naturally he took the position of Papa. Being in this position, all his friends looked up to him for advice. He always was willing to give it because he didn ' t need it himself. Although Bob wanted to fly. he decided to go Supply Corps, because of his love for warehouses and loading docks. He also plans to go Medical Service Corps, because he loves nurses as well. Good luck with everything! I will see you in the fleet! You supply ' em and I ' ll fly " em! The Rat. James Howard Holbrook I have known Jim for almost four years now. Over that time he has been known as Chicken-Hawk, Hambone, Bonehead . . . Jim was brought up in Hyden, Kentucky. Mondays are always filled with joy when The Thousand Sticks News and the Leslie County Newspaper arrive from home. We always anxiously anticipate Tabitha Field ' s latest bit of literary genius. Oh. how I love to read about catching frogs and shooting squirrels. The most significant characteristic that I ' ve observed is his in- tense determination. For instance, he stayed under water for ten straight weeks so he could add to his ribbon collection. He is so determined to keep his Trans-Am clean that he rarely drives it on those dirty Annapolis streets. Most importantly, he is so determined to graduate with a EE de- gree that he has sacrificed his weekends, and even his spring break to earn it. Jim, remember to believe in the gouge, BJ. and yourself, because you can do anything. MO. Brian Nicholas Humm From the sheltered life of suburbia. Brian Humm was accepted into the loving arms of Mother B. Plebe year in 3rd company had its adjustments, but his life was stiil safe and secure until he moved to Dirty Thirty and met us. Following in the foot- steps of ALBE, Brian quickly learned the ins and outs of living between two alien beings (a Puerto Rican and a hillbilly). He learned about the locker monster, that the 10 second rule is always in effect, but never when you think it is. and not to leap from the top raclt before you can open your eyes. Brian quickly became one of the most popular in the company because of his ability to entertain us. From the power trip of smashing a debate opponent with a well-turned phrase to the helplessness of having a girlfriend at Oberlin College (Jane Fonda U.). Brian showed his mas- tery of the English language to anyone who would listen. LL P. Your friend and roomie. Cody. David Robert Lester Although his parents live in Fairfax. Dave is convinced that he ' s really from Pitts- burgh. After living with Mo-Lester for 3 years, I ' m not sure either city would claim him! Who in their right mind would want a man who dresses in style, drives a Z-28 Camaro. gets the grades, plays the sax- aphone, gets selected for nuke power, and on top of that, has a wonderful fiance? Of course it wasn ' t always quite that good. Youngster year was full of bad memories from Bojangles or Dahlgren bricks. Re- member, if a girl stops you while you ' re running in the yard, she ' s not after you for your outstanding personality! If you should become forgetful in later years and begin to lose things, look under the sink! If someone takes the liberty of telling you of your condition be sure to ask them " Am I really? " No need to tell you to do well in nuke school as I ' m certain you will. Best wishes and good luck to you and Angie- babe on your new life together. Daddy. Daniel George McMillan Dan, Dano.

Mykle Jar ... always the one to drop his drawers and do a striptease at a party. It ' s amazing someone so stupid could be ranked so high in our class. Myk was always one for power drinkin ' and liked to get abused by big-boned girls with names like " Spike. " Never forget the hock- ey bus trips where he would eat anything, anywhere, anytime. Never would a hockey season pass when he would not get hit where it counts. Myk doesn ' t have morals, he has standards, and when his standards aren ' t met, he lowers them. Probably his only fault is that he is going to be a marine. Remember, a full glass is a happy glass. PES. DFP.

An exchange student from Venezuala is more like it. After a couple lessons from Scamps and the boys on booze etiquette, Jav learned how not to drink. And at closing time. Javier always retained his moral senses. (Well, most of the time). The Latin-American lover was known to frequent the local dance halls with that look in his eye. Back in the hall, Jav was a loan shark, as both the U.S. and Venezualan governments paid him. His most redeeming qualities were patience and understanding. Few people possess the integrity that Jav does. My parents love him to death and are trying to work something out with the Venezualan gov- ernment about swapping sons. He is a super person and a great friend. I hope he remembers all this when he ' s an admiral in Venezuala and I want to party at his beach house in Caralos. Stephen Scott Roth Scott rattled through four years of wild times. He kicked off the fun via dining out chit to the Vous fourth class year. Then he rode into Dirty Thirty to wipe his slate clean. Escaping youngster year with yet one masonry momento. he found a call to explosives from chem lab. He tried bomb- ing the plebes second class year, leading to a personal in-house waterbed. They were no fun so Scott found the OOW a more entertaining target one night, playing the LT ' s wings to dodge his first deuce in 2 years. Luck ran out and Scott returned to form with a worthwhile excursion with Johnny P to a " remote " college in upstate NY. It only cost him 3 months. He then proved first class year that your class- mates CAN doom you to 52 days Smoke Hall visitation for running from Doughboy in 20th to the tune of a 5K. All behind him now, he heads to sunny Orlando to clean his records again. Live it up and good luck always. Jeff. Timothy Matthew Roylance Tim flew in from Belleville, Illinois with one thing on his mind- Navy Air. After spending plebe year in 21 with Greg and Dave, Tim was ready for sailtramid with the captain ' s special chili recipe and the boat almost sinking in port. Youngster year tound Tim in 30 with Dan, Scott, and me. After a few comet bombs, " beautiful " girls from Dahlgren, and the unfortunate fate of Pat Benetar — " Merry Christmas Scott, " ' ve were more than ready for Christmas break. Second semester we traded Dan for Scamps and enjoyed a se- mester of Tuesday night fights. Second class year found Tim with a car, a lot more liberty than the rest of us, and more re- striction. First class year us together again and we learned the secret behind min- imizing room formal preparation time. When service selection came along, you picked the first possible flight school date. No one was surprised. Best of luck at Pensacola, just don ' t expect to guard the nukes on my ship. JEP. Raul Ferdinand Saldivar We all wondered if Rudes was going to make it through his youngster year. He and Kaiser had a penchant for fun that scared the Hell out of the rest of us. Two years later he ' s still clad in cowboy boots, and he still spends his Sundays hungover, but the man from Grand Prairie has toned down a bit. We attribute this to Lisa, who, bless her heart, has played " den-mother " to a bunch that doesn ' t exactly win any awards for good behavior. We get trashed — and so did the apartment. The clean-up crew was always smaller than the party itself, but Rudes never complained; he was too busy planning the next event. We still have a few bachelor parties to throw be- fore the big event so the Sunday morning hangovers should continue. But I ' m sure they ' ll be worth the night before. After the wedding Rudy will carry his fun-loving spirit to Quantico where I ' m quite sure he ' ll find ways to have a good time at TBS. He has every place else. Eric Eames Wood In 30th Company was one Eric Wood, Who could run and carouse more than most could. He did race and command. Meet many a demand, And still manage to do what he should. While at the Academy four years He was given oft to disappear. What he did was a mystery. Surely off making history, For many rumors of his ventures we did hear. S.

Sean Thomas Coughlin To say that the Naval Academy changed Sean from a seventeen year old man into a ' 21 year old boy would be false. Why Sean even came to the Academy is a mystery bul his accomplishments here have far ex- ceded his ambitions. One ambition he re- alized was crew. Sean spent three years in Navy ' s heavyweight varsity eight and was stroke and captain his last year. Sean once said that he wnuld give up his Olympic prospects for an undefeated Senior year. Well. Sean, it didn ' t happen, but we didn ' t believe you anyway. .Still, the Adams Cup victory would make and team ' s season.

He was old when he got here, and rapidly got older as he chaffed under the system Rod never had it easy, and his friends were what kept him going. Trouble dogged him his first class year, but somehow he pulled it ail together and held on. Now it ' s off to the fleet and back to California - San Diego that is for a long awaited reunion with the Navy he loves, JBB, Gregory Thomas Hill Greg came to the Academy with seven years of surfing and seven running age group world records under his belt. Though he couldn ' t pursue the surfing, he pursued his running with a passion, but failed to qualify for the ' 88 Olympic Trials marathon as of this writing. His nightly 2300 taps (even on weekends), two-a-day runs totalling ninety miles weekly, and his long interval workouts did not add up to a Hub ' 1:H) marathon in lime. Along the way. he won a marathon with three thousand people in it, raced throughout Europe, and collected awards or many local races while running on the varsity cross country and track teams as Al ' s designated morathoner. And he studied enough to place in the t ii 2(H) of his class and secure a Marine NFO billet. But he was and al- ways will be only a runner with one goal. Michael James Ruber II 516 The Rriftadp: Thirty-Firnt Company d M. I Anthony Andrew Diggle Tony came from Mexico City. Mexico and found the high-pressured Hfe of the Naval Academy quite a change from home. How- ever, with his high level of " intensity " and well developed work ethic. Diggs overcame all the difficulties of Academy life. Not one to mix business with pleasure, Tony spent many a weekend " burning the midnight oil " and in case of special academic events he even managed to study a little. Besides his well-deserved academic record. ) developed somewhat of a rep- utation with the opposite sex. Not one to avoid a challenge. Tony will be jumping from the frying pan and into the fire when he becomes part of the USMC after grad- uation. Good luck in the woods! LDV. Gary Leo Janac Michael Louis LaVigna Mike came to USNA from the metropolis of Mahwah, N.J. He skated through Plebe year with Phil and Graduated " party " from Club 34. Although he did spend many Saturday nights on " the watch " sophomore year. Mike moved to 31 but spend more time out of company than in. having to room with " Mr. Personality " and Berry the Dog. After the scare. Mike practiced his conning on the YP ' s. Second class year passed and Mike overcame his struggle with the engineering, the boredom and the Bebe. The scare left Mike hanging for the Ring Dance. That ' s cool. First class year Mike ' s striper potential was realized and he carried a sword all year. A recipient of the triple crown, Brown Sugar inclusive, Mike continued to party with the guys until doubhng over after a Saturday night watch. Mike dreamed his way into the supply corps, with a collateral duty as des- ignate driver. Good luck Park Chop smooth ' em in Athens. Sniff and Spence. Scott Owen Lochridge Well Loc — You did it.

After a turbulent plehe year. George was moved from Thirtieth Company up to Thirty-One. He immediately made a name for himself and was known as " Bucket. " George chose Economics for his major, so in his abundant free lime, he went to such exotic places as Dahlgren Hall, Steerage, and the Astrolurf. On vacation he oflen went down to Ft, L.Tuderdale. where he became the Grand Belly Flop Champion. After four vears of playing on the offensive line for P avy, George reappeared as a " firstie. " When he seized control of the company wardroom, collecting funds sud- denly became much easier. George decided thai Nuclear Power wasn ' t for him and chose the Marines instead. Good luck (»eorge, you are sure to do a great job! 518 Thr lirlKadr: Thirty-Firnt Company Michael Kevin Smith Mike came to us from Ironton, Ohio, even though he secretly desires to hve in Ken- tucky. After four years of bouncing off of 250 lb. linemen. Mike ended his illustrious football career on crutches. His EE career was not quite as long, and after youngster year he joined the brotherhood of General Engineers. Another major change in his life was his two new roommates, John and Pat. He is now and forever twisted. The end of second class year Mike emerged at the Ring Dance with a girl who carried larger thighs than his own. He left early the next morning on cruise, leaving many of his worldly possessions behind. His classmates realized that Mike had many hidden talents: These include sleeping, lip- synching AC DC as Angus Young, winter driving, and avoiding weekend duty. We wish Super Mikey good luck in the Sub- marine Service, and we hope his peak will still be intact at our 20 year reunion. HBI. Robert Franklin Smith Bob arrived at USNA via the Hokie shuf- fle and spent many nights questioning the move. " Bean head " is a homeboy from Towson. who compiled more credit hours with his wife-to-be Karen than at the Academy. To Mr. Domestic, organization was as natural as a Budweiser in hand. Bob spent many nights masterminding the ultimate getaway. Key West, Sugarbush and Toad ' s provided blurred memories of the fellas, but in Newport we were lucky to escape with our lives. His greatest influ- ence was on the tastes of Z, Sniff and the Boog, introducing P.B. and pickles, her- ring and sardines to our menus. Bob, as a Tau-Beta and BSB, you are destined to touch the wings with the best. Keep your hand on the stick, your eye on the ball and a room in the basement. IRIE! Z, Sniff, and The Boog. John Mark Sniffen The Big Guy, Mr. No Credit, Three beers and watch out ladies. It took Sniff a while to realize that his talents from high school were not fully appreciated at USNA. Two 5 ' s and 300 tours later, he joined the Fellas in 31. As Navy ' s premier tight end Sniffs abilities were largely wasted until his end- zone spike. Aside from football and geek- ing. Sniff was always in search of the elu- sive cheap beer. His best came out over second class summer on a golf course and in the BOQ with a surprise phone call. A veteran of Toad ' s and the Georgetown Pub, Sniff could always manage to find a good time. Never to be kept down, he used his football mentality and brute force to get what he wanted out of the boat school. P-cola ' s beaches, bars, and babes await you. Bv the way Sniff, Call Home. Bob and Z. Leroy Darrel Vaughn Darrel came to the Academy from the Mecca of this nation: Struthers, Ohio. He was a plebe in 21st, where the popularity of his Southern roommate helped him re- ally enjoy his first year. Darrel played foot- ball till the end of plebe year, when he decided to devote all his time to Poll Sci, his true calling. As a youngster, Darrel, always social, made rounds in the com- pany with a Walkman on. A minor ac- ademic scare later contributed to bringing this custom to an end. Darrel survived and second class year brought further adven- tures. The opposite sex was the subject of long conversations with his roommates, who helped him to sort out his possibilities and focus his attention on only a few girls at a time. Darrel ' s last year brought great- er responsibility, but with graduation not far off, it was bearable, nevertheless. A great friend who always seemed to have a handle on things, Darrel ' U go far. Good luck on Mars. AAD. John Michael Young John came to us from West Bumfork, New York on a quest to expand his feeble mind and test his wrestling and driving skills. EE tests exploded his brain and sunk his QPR youngster year. He then decided to bag it and went general E. John needed an easier major so he could play harder and survive my crazy antics. He did get more intelligent as shown by his wild spring break ski trip to the Alps with The Gnome. Raging through on all night trains, speeding in German taxi cabs and constantly in search of young German Freulien (sounds like the name of an or- ange drink). John found that RX-7 ' s were quite disposable and found a way to have his insurance co. buy him a better car than he started with. Second class summer brought many crazy road trips with Dale and the Wanabros. Low budget and high alcohol consumption was always the goal (even sleeping in cars). J.Y. will do well in the fleet. Good Luck and keep skiing. The Bohawk. Robert Charles Zaorski Z hails from Hamden, Connecticut, home of Modern Apizza and Toad ' s Place. He spent plebe year trying to get around Verhovsek to get to the sink. After the scramble, Z brought his basketball talents to 31. He was mostly quiet, hanging out with Father Ed, Uncle Rich and Mark. Z finally cut loose in Key West playing beach volleyball till he bled, passing out in Slop- py Joe ' s, and blowin ' the conch. His en- deavors continued into the summer at P- cola, dancing with golf clubs and awaking in the lavatory. Z was inducted into BSB and Tau-Beta by the ' 86 absentees: Stein, G. and Pumar. In his final year Z became a single man and drove his roommate, Laz 15, crazy. The Horsehead ' s intensity, pick- up, and USMC flag will contribute much to the Marine Corps. Just do whatever you want and be the best at it. It ' s good to see a man graduate who can drop trou in front of the OOW. Bob, Sniff and The Boog.

Stacey never slowed down, unless struck by yet another violent mood swing or yet another devastating injury. After lettering in gymnastics, she decided that diving would be more fun, lettering yet again! Stacey was at home wherever she went, especially Miser, ' Hall. With this perilous affinity for pain, it only made sense ( ' . ' ? ' . ' ) for her to " join " the Marine Corps. Always particular, ner love went from pop tarts to popcorn Ut peppermint patties, but not the Bancroft mice they attracted (Stacey, did you letter in high jump, too?) An honest friend, a faithful confidant, you shall be missed. Keep the faith ! LAR DFS. Spare Me! 526 Jonathan Joseph Jewell Jon came tn us originally from the " American Heartland. " a place called Oowaniac. Michigan. A devouted Rugger. he has done it all. After three years, he finally lettered in the sport and earned his precious N ' sweater. Some of Oafs other accomplishments include the Black ' N ' (from a (lerman exploit), stars, a handle for his head (a nighv accident), seven girl- friends from different parts of the country and two from foriegn countries, and the company ' s " Moat Clueless Award.

Cctming lri ni notorious 29 during plebe year, he heal i he odds of graduating, and did it with style. His smooth personality had a positive nn f)act on the company, not to mention the adies. Being an Oceanography major, he was a regular at the Fishmarket in G. town, experimenting with various alcohol groups, until his sini ng debut. He should adapt very well to the life of a Naval avi- ator. Good luck! Sibe and Batch. The BrifCadf : Thirty-Second Company Grady Thatcher Banister III Grady Thatcher Banister III risked much grief and mention on head walls in as- suming the coveted position of Wardroom President first class year. This " Florida Boy w Moustache " actually hails from Georgia and hopes to be the next Mav- erick, with Renee playing the role of Kelly McGillis, of course. Grady ' s study hour began when all others ' ended, and this required him to nap during menial events such as class and lectures by The Carp. His first semester billet of MIR grew into Company Drill, intramural coach, and Company Rumor Control Officer, at which he was very efficient. He also en- joyed financing Federal Court with a weekly parking ticket or two. His leisurely interests included stopping cars in Vir- ginia Beach and praying to the porcelain gods in Philly. Echo and the Bunnymen would be proud of you. Gotta love that P.S . . , and you gotta love Grody Banister, that punk rock Southern rebel. MBM. Scott Alan Brown " Grog " came to us from the Peach State prepared for plebe year. Pictures of many " Georgia Peaches " could be found in his room along with lots of letters from them. Dating was never a problem with Scott, it was just which girl on what weekend. Third class year was no different as he played the field better than anyone. The girls took their toll though, and as his grades began to plummet, Scott turned himself into a geek. Scott did a 180 and at the start of second class year, he was see- ing Sup ' ts stars. That year also brought on a most memorable Army Navy game that will never be forgotten. First class year cruised right along with the Volare. Robin and some radio games. A true Southerner at heart. Scott will be a SWO at Charles- ton; so watch out ladies, here comes the Grog. None of us in 3 ' 2 will forget the constant laughter he provided for us all. So, as we head our separate ways, best wishes and thanks for some great mem ' ories. AP. Anthony Almond Solon Diamos Anthony Diamos has spent four fun years with us at USNA, but only the Philippines will benefit from the man ' s profession- alism. This foreign national spent a year at PMA where he was legally hazed. There- fore, he expected the worst in America. However, Tony ' s flawless voice quickly took the USNA Glee Club to unprece- dented heights and successes. Profession- ally, Tony was nauseating. His policy on plebe-spooning was to do so only after graduation ... the plebes ' . Among his many love affairs was the one he had with his rack and the ones with any of a number of female friends. " Ooh, she is very beau- tiful! " (Let ' s not talk about our girls.) Presently, Anthony Almond Solon Diamos cannot decide his future, whether it be in graduate school, manning the con- trols of a Philippine helicopter, serving as a bodyguard for Cory Aquino, or pursuing a career on Broadway. We will always love the boy, even if he is a Communist. (He ' s not really.) MBM. Timothy Allen Florian The Flapper came to us from the " Home of the Buzzards. " After surviving a hectic plebe year which included Captain Cub Scout, ' the drinking escapade with the wrestling team, and rooming with K.B. and P.K., Tim spent most of his long weekends with Dani, and the others party- ing with the " Mullinator. " Injuries pre- vented his upcoming career as a Navy wrestler, so he settled back to instruct plebe wrestling sub-squad and struggle through advanced calculus as a math ma- jor. Among his " varied " interests were hard rock, Neil Pert, Sawney and Letitia, and the drums, but he has also enjoyed breaking lights and beer bottles, and try- ing to resist Virginia weekends 2 c year. This is the " Naval " Academy. 2nd Lt. Sheila, leave Tim alone. As a result of his Marine Corps service selection, he spent most of second semester bald. He would like to thank his super parents for stand- ing by him all the way. Best of luck with the " tough team. " RSM and MBM. Douglas Fitzgerald Keller Spike was a unique character imported from New Zealand through Third Com- pany, a bundle of raw nerve who had end- less fun dishing out headaches and in- descriminate abuse. His love for the wilderness near Clackamas River, Oregon is exceeded only by an innate calling to sunny beaches and surf. While at the Academy, Spike gained thirty pounds of sinewy muscle and enjoyed the time with his teammates while excelling as water polo goalie and team captain. He enjoys all other sports, including walking the thin line of HRC and he saws a mean violin. His job as Plebe Summer Platoon Com- mander allowed his personahty to fiow freely. For Spike, everyday is " TGIF " — a reflection of his favorite song " American Dream " by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. Spike ' s goals are to have fun while being the best at what he does and I ' m sure he ' ll fly high among the elite in Navy Fighters soon enough. Best of luck to our " Most Talented, " Douglas F. Keller. JAZ. Eric Nathaniel Leong Eric came to us from San Jose but not before putting in three years as an ET. He was the old man of the company and did not ap- preciate plebe year. He quickly took to fenc- ing and helped win the Battalion champi- onships twice. His quiet nature and laid back attitude allowed him to cruise through youngster year without half the company knowing he existed. It was this year when one fatal night in Dahlgren would reshape his life. He met Sally and from then on they knew that they were meant for each other. He proposed over Christmas and has the honor of being the first of the company in wedlock. Second class year brought out the acadamian in the " Donger " if not the ath- lete. The arrival of his computer and games gave him a good break from studies his first class year and had a severe edge over his roommie with almost every game. The Sur- face Nuclear family is gaining one fine room- mate and friend. Good luck and remember to always go " ahead warp speed, Mr. Sulu. " JJJ. Lisa Mercedes Liwski They were the best of times, they were the worst of times. Everything from a 3.28 to a 1.67. from Navy Track to Navy Cheer- leading, and many other highs and lows. This place has the unusual ability to be in a constant state of change, and to change others at the same time. Fortunately, the one constant was the love of Jesus, as a friend and Savior he can ' t be beat! He gave me loving parents, great roommates, and the best surprise of all, my three stripes. Heading off to the Marines brings an ever present thought. " You know my folly, O Lord, my guilt is not hidden from you. May those that hope in you not be dis- graced because of me, Lord, the Lord Almighty; May those who seek you not be put to shame because of me, O God of Israel. " Ps.69:5-6. Thank Jesus! PTL. Darin James McCloy From the thriving metropolis of Hickory came this good ol ' boy with a thick south- ern drawl. Third class year he arrived on 8- ready to assume the youngster position — horizontal. He quickly distinguished himself as one of the best rackers in the company. Youngster year also began the famous Army antics, some of which he can ' t remember. Darin wanted to follow in dad ' s footsteps as a Marine pilot, but his perfect eyes left him as the result of too much 3tudying(?) He ran into The Rocket and decided that he really didn ' t want to be a Mech E. anyway. Along came firsty year, and so did Teresa. The miles piled up on the mighty Camaro during the weekly road trips to Wake Forest to see his sweet- heart, and Darin did his part to keep the Virginia State Troopers in business. Leon- ard-Hagler was nothing compared to Mc- Cloy-Flynn one Saturday afternoon in the Wardroom. The Corps found another good man. Good luck. Gus. ZYM.

I can ' t believe how many times I was tempted to throw in the towel, or let someone else throw it in for me. God knows that there were always plenty of people who would have liked the oppor- tunity — Troy and Arnold my first year, followed by a multitude of others. Sheer pigheadedness is probably the only reason I stuck it out; I always had that, if nothing else! My rebel spirit and temper kept me separate, but it kept me going — joke ' em if thev can ' t take a •(S)(C ! I did it for me. and they can never take that away. This Clace has taught me a lot. both good and ad, and in the end I got what 1 wanted my ririj;, my car. my Marine Air billet, and my " first-rate " education. I thank the Lord, my family, and my friends for their help in making a dream come true. Hofie- fully the first of many for the Water Weenie, Christopher John Wilson Chris comes to us from McDonald, Penn sylvania — which is a nice way of saving Pittsburgh. He first achieved fame foil consistently high performance on the foot-( ball team, holding the clipboard with valon for 3 years. Not even the post-game " Wilson-gaters " were enough to prevent his retirement second class year. Chris ha? an affinity for nurses, and even was one fori a night. Even though he ' s the perfect male specimen, he hasn ' t vet met his perfect female counterpart. It " is to his credit that Chris has always been the un-football player; voted most intellectual, this Mech K. will graduate with the highest order ol merit in 32. and deservedly so. Bound foi the nuclear Navy, we ' re trying to make him less sensible and diligent so that he ll spend all those bonuses. Chris has been 1 great roommate and better friend, and wt wish him the best in his career — but if he gets out in five. Goose and the Zule want a franchise to sell his genot ' pe. TYW, Eric Addison Parker Er-rock dropped in from the sunny beach- es of West Palm Beach where beautiful courses enable oV Jack to swing his magic wands year round. Although Rock did not meet a few of his preset goals (baseball and academics), he took his dissappointments with a lot of grace. The great times have certainly overshadowed the bad as seen through all the visits to Capt Coors ' home. Caddying for the Capt. proved to be very rewarding at the 10th hole, and now that Rock has taken up the game he hopes to lure Capt. Coors into toting his bag around Tantallon. How ' bout them High Point trips — your body is strong! Rock may never be noted for his musical creativity that was much in need when the electricity in my car went out with 6 hours to go on our trip. Second class year. Rock lucked into one heck of a girl, for if she has spoiled you as much as she has she has spoiled me, you found one rare gem! Good luck in Mayport, I ' m sure our paths will cross again soon! DMS. Arthur Paul Pruett Art came to us from a suburb of the " Bean-town, " but not without going through NAPS and a splinter-pickin ' sea- son with me on the baseball team. Young- ster year. Art learned the advantages of having a roommate whose parents lived in the area, as he soon was able to apply his newly-learned skills in FLlOl (Free- loading). He did manage to learn a few things that year including the game " Yippie. " but not until he had paid the price many times! It sure made playing with the " Wet Shoes " much more difficult; didn ' t know golf bails could be so noisy! Second class year was academically frus- trating, but somehow we all managed to survive from being strangled by wires. At the midpoint of his s tay here. Art met Andrea, the girl of his dreams. Fortunate- ly, as the amount of time they spent to- gether increased, so did the chow pack- ages. Good luck. Art: May you, Andrea, and your career avoid the rough. DMS. Lisa Ann Rathjen If Lisa will be remembered for anything it ' ll be for having the most decorated room in the brigade during the Christmas sea- son — from Thanksgiving through finals it was little lights, garlands, and Amy Grant ' s Christmas album non-stop. The things she endured here are amazing — being a crew jock, having a roller coaster QPR, wondering if she ' d get her service selection, and having a terribly moody roommate. (What a pain!) Even more im- portant to Lisa, however, is the true mean- ing of Christmas — the Messiah. If anyone in the brigade has truly reflected the love of the Father in her eyes and in her heart, it is Lisa. Lisa had a thing for animals too — I never knew Bob but I guess he was quite an addition to the family. She had to keep me from flushing Spot down the toi- let after he kept me up all night. You ' ve been a great roommate and a wonderful friend — thanks for putting up with me. your fellow screw-up. SLH. Derrick Manton Smith We are not sure where Derrick hails from, but his past includes a golf course or two. Being a Navy brat and a hamster, or is it gerbil. Derr adjusted well to life at Canoe U. Youngster year found our hero enjoying occasional weekends at home with Cap- tain Coors. the family and a long list of friends. As a second class. Smurf played 1 on the golf team and managed to find time for a fling with " Gertie. " Too bad he didn ' t do as well on the PCR as he did on the links. Ta king it in stride along with a new life as a bachelor, Derrick began firstie year on NAPS detail, which is another story. As golf captain. Derr enjoyed the life of a three-striper both semesters but was rarely able to use the extra liberty due to the rigors of being a mathmatician. A Ca- hfornian at heart. Derrick will be serving as a SWO in San Diego after graduation. Derr, we know life has many hole-in-one ' s for you, but don ' t get caught night-putting with the Admiral ' s daughter. John Andrew Zulick Zule came to 32 from Shamokin, PA, via the 35th Company. Only a cross country lightweight at first, he is now living proof that four years in the weightroom can change one ' s appearance. Zule likes to watch and play contact sports, like bas- ketball, for instance. He also enjoys rock cUmbing and hunting big game. He par- ticipated in the Karate Club among other assorted sports. His favorite music group while here was Cat Stevens. Not many people were privileged by meeting the per- son behind the " Terminator " image. Then again, not many people were ALLOWED the privilege of meeting Zule. His sarcastic sense of humor and direct method of get- ting things done were only a couple of attributes that most of us came to ap- preciate and respect. Some of Zule ' s goals include " reaching Karma " and " overcoming challenges. " No doubt he ' ll accomphsh these in the Special Warfare Community. We all wish him well.
