This year Major Ringley and Staff Sargant Holly, accompanied by twelve midshipmen, spent two nights and two days at Camp LeJeune. The first night was made special by an ex-Gamecock who provided steak dinners and two rounds of drinks for all the midshipmen. The following day was spent first at the headquarters building attending morning colors with the commanding general. Later we were given an explosives demonstration which consisted of various mines and satchel charges used by the Marine engineers. This was followed by a tearful visit to the gas chamber where all learned to love their gas masks. A ride on the new LVT'S and a chance to fire the M16, M60, and a .45 filled the rest of the afternoon. The second day started with a visit to the New River Air Station for a quick look at the heli- copter support group. Next the midshipmen were shOWn the various types of artillery and various pieces of connected equipment that help to make an infantry commander's life more pleasant. To wrap up the visit the Marine Recons displayed their radio, scuba, and parachute equipment and explained the procedure for becoming a Recon Marine. The trip reached it's most harrowing point on the bus ride from Columbia airport with SKl Car- michael at the wheel. In the words of S$gt. Holly, "The trip was a breath of fresh air." To the rest of us it was quite interesting. We shall miss the hot chow and cold drinks. What a gas! l l l Semper Fidelis Society The 72 - 73 year for the Semper Fidelis Society has been both eventful and successful. Under the leadership of Jake Stone, Bill Fraser and Tom King in the Full and Mike Lamb, Greg Eddy and John McGuire in the Spring the Society has continued to function with excellence. The nucleus of the society is made up of Marine-options but membership is open to any Midshipmm who is interested in learning more about the Marine Corps.

Mermaids are selected on the basis of scholar- ship, leadership, and willingness to serve, as well as poise and interest in the Naval service. Every month the Mermaid Fleet completes a service project, such as making Halloween tray pIace cards and Christmas wreaths for the State Hospital, and collecting food cans for a needy family at Thanksgiving. Some of these projects as well as their many social activities are done in coniunction with the Compass and Chart Society achor the Midshipman Battalion. Under the advisement of Lt. Albert Goldfinch, the Mermaids were led this past year by Fleet Commanders Rosanne McDowell and Beverly Byrd.

The platoon with the highest cumutative number of points is recognized for its dedication. CARTER PUTS OUT THE WORD. l l l l 1 As it should be, our Marine Corps Birthday is cause for celebration; celebration in honor of another year of proud, dedicated and successful service to our Country. This occasion not only recalls a birth and the passing of another year of success and honor - but celebrates a rebirth of the spirit which binds all Marines. That spirit is embodied in the thousands of young Marines around the world who will celebrate their first Marine Corps Birth- day this year. They will provide the bridge between the proud traditions of our past and the exciting possibilities of the future. ' Ultimately, the character of the name "Marine" will be entrusted ' to their charge. At the end of the year ahead, when we transmit to those that follow the weIl-Iighted torch of special trust of the American l people, let us ensure the flow is brighter - through act and deed - ' in the knowledge that all Marines truly take care of their own. This is my charge. This is my message. Happy Birthday and best wishes to all members of our Marine Corps family on this 197th Anniversary. 088ng R. E. CUSHMAN, JR. General, U. 5. Marine Corps 40 Marine Corps Birthday '37:" 'VlVf f-le'n'y: v J-hi-Auin Whips Neg . "" K Navy Birthday CHIEF OF NAVAL OPERATIONS Navy Birthday 1972 This year, for the first time, the Navy formally honors the day on which the Continental Congress in 1775 authorized construction of ships for an American Navy -- and thus brought into being the United States Navy. October 13 is the 197th anniversary of the U. 5. Navy. Those of us who serve today have inherited a proud and honorable tradition from all those who have gone before us. They set the standards Of victory and excellence that we carry forward. 'Each of us has a duty and obligation to preserve these standards for future generations of Navymen. I ask all persons associated with the Navy to use the Navy Birthday as an occasion to honor the memory of our departed shipmates -- and to dedicate our very best efforts to the present and future defense of our homeland. 41 Heart Fund The USC NROTC, with the help of some of the USC coaches and athletes held a bounce for beats Heart Fun'd marathon for 29 hours at the Dutch Square 'shopping mall. One basketball was kept bouncing for the entire 29 hours by our own version of the Harlem Globetrotters. With morat support from the Mermaids and logistics supplied by area merchants, NROTC raised $4,500 for the Heart Fund. The project was brainstormed by Lt. Arnow who.stayed for the entire marathon. His plans for next year include a 48 hour marathon with more than $15,000 collected, "BOUNCE FOR BEATS": SUCCESSFUL PROJ ECT Blood Drive Returns to Armory After all drilling and studying the midshipmen has more to give -- blood. Each semester the Bat- talion comes out in force to assist the Red Cross in its Blood Drive. The midshipmen are encouraged to donate blood, to assist in the publicity for the drive and to aid the Red Cross in every possible way to make the Blood Drive a success. For donat- ing blood the midshipmen are guaranteed blood for themselves and their immediate families whenever they need it within the allowed period. Battalion Sports In spite of the scheduling difficulties which eliminated the intra-battalion football compe- tition, tha 72 - 73 academic year has been a rather successful one. The volleyball and basketball competition between platoons has been both intensa and enthusiastic lFirst Alpha, in fact, is favored to take it all in basketballl. Although we did not field an intramural football team this year, the Unit did manage to field a team to challenge the Air Force ROTC. The football game ended in a 6-6 tie this year and what a game it was too, as coach Joe Yarbrough and his boys struggled against the wind and a driving rain lwhich prevented our potent passing gamal to score early and hold onto the lead until the final moments. lt was at that point that a desperate Air Force team, with raferee assistance, managed to score and tie the game. Still, the brightest light of the year has been the aggressive and Spirited Nuvy-Marine Corps Basketball Team. Six-fcot-five inch John Hammarer, has led our team to a 7 - record and clinched a spot in the playoffs. Team Captain Pete Carr and Assistant Coach Steve Robertson provided the necessary leader- ship and guidance that has proven invaluable through-out the season. Able and trusted re- serves such as Bob Sooy and Harold Fowler come in and saved many a game during the season. In spite of all this, however, one must never loose sight of better things. Next year's line-up provides a bright horizon of promise for success in softball and football as well. So here is to a good year post, and here is to a good year up-coming. ; SHIP WRECK PARTIES Tell us a story, Sargent! Once a semester the NROTC Unit tries to prove that not only water floats the Navy. Pine island, the target for these parties, is situated in the wiles of the Lake Murray area and the residents are therefore conditioned to strahge noises and wild looking animals. Compass and Chart Society 1 sponsored the FaII party and Semper Fidelis the t 1 Spring. k e A special word goes out to the Semper Fidelis Society, for through their efforts and innovations the most successful Shipwreck party was held on March 3rd. Through the use of decorations and a iive band the party was lifted to a new level of enioyment. In addition, the artistic talent of John Blair was revealed through his excellent posters. Well clone Marines! MCKGY' IOying it thick. Jim, doing what he does best. wwaj'wvvhp .Aan-iva .l- . . Twice a year, near the end of each semester, the Commissioning Ball is held at the Fort Jackson Officer's Club. These serve as a formal farewell to all seniors being sent out to the fleet, or the Corps. The evening consists of a fine feed provided by the Clubs kitchen and then dancing. During intermission the Commanding Officer of the NROTC Unit recognizes the distinguished guests and announces the top three Midshipmen Officer billets tor the following semester. The ball serves a two fold role. It not only serves to give graduating seniors an outstanding send off, but it also gives underclassmen a chance to practice their social etiquette. E a ! l ', Strong Say 5 Goodtbye Awards Ceremony The most important purpose of the midshipman is to achieve success in his academic pursuits. Those midshipmen who excel in these necessary endeavors are authorized to wear certain decorations to recog- nize their success. The Academic Excellence Ribbon is awarded to those midshipmen who make the Dean's List or Honor Roll. The Academic Achievement Stars are awarded to midshipmen on the basis of their class standing, aptitude, conduct, and physical fitness. For extraordinary achievement midshipmen are awarded the Meritorious Achievement Ribbon and the Silver Star is awarded to those midshipmen who receive a 4.0 GPR during a given semester. FIRST CLASS First Class Cruise enables ,the midshipman to familiarize himself with the duties of a iunior officer aboard ship. Not only does he obtain a working knowledge of division officer responsi- bilities and collateral duties, he is also thoroughly initiated into all iunior officer watch stations. This past summer, individual USC middies visited such places as Copenhagen, Rome, Monaco, Turkey, Athens, Honolulu, and Tokyo as an integral part of their shipboard training. 50 ABOVE: McKay has the conn?

E N i e SECOND CLASS To give the midshipman a greater appreciation of the flying branch of the Navy, three weeks of 2nd class cruise is spent at NAS Corpus Christi, Texas. There a midshipman has three flights in a 11.34 trainer, the "Tenny Weeny", followed by one hour in a 5-2 "Tracker,' and the F-9 Cougar or T-2 Buckeye. In addition basics are given in the use of the 45 pistol and survival techniques for the midshipmen at the Welcoming Ball. The Ready Room also stands by to assure the midshipmen of something to do in the evening and regret in the morning. One thing is assured, any- body who is allergic to the sun should beware, it burns there for 25 hours a day. LEFT TOP: Ready-Room Art Work. LEFT MIDDLE: Waiting for a Chair.

At the "Creek" the midshipmon is given an overali view of the training and complexity that goes into preparing for and carrying out an amphibious operation. The Riverine Operation is a mock conflict run in conditions similar to those in South East Asia. Little Creek is situated near Virginia Beach, and once again, the midshipman is afforded a chance to tan himseif. Other pastimes included sleeping on your rock without putting wrinkles in it, keeping out of sight of anyone with the look of a man searching for voiunteers, and double timing across streets. Middies Hit the Beach. Liberty at Virginia Beach Marine Taxi. Return of the Swamp FOX hP' THIRD CLASS In order to learn how to properly give orders a midshipmun must first learn how to take orders; this is the purpose of the third class cruise. On this cruise the rising sophomore has a chance to see the life of the sailor. Living with the enlisted men and sharing in their work gives the midship- man a better understanding of shipboard operations, equipment, and living conditions. GOT youuuu.,.,g,7 szxv, cl: , t'h m .-.
