The University of Virginia NRO TC is one of
the finest sources of Na val and Marine C orps
officers in the nation. The 1980 Long Class
will introduce you to our seven new Unit
Staff officers and the 79-80 Midshipmen offi-
cers who once again proved the University
NROTC is the best unit going. University Mid-

ience a combination of two distinct worlds; life
as a student in a civilian university tempered by
the rigors of military discipline. The Midship-
man 's first priority is academics, which, at the
University, is more than enough to keep anyone
busy. The University Midshipman is, however,
also required to fulfill his military obligations. A
combination of NROTC academic require-
ments, leadership lab every Tuesday and Sum-
mer Training Cruises that last from four to six
weeks, give the University Midshipman oppor-
tunilies his civilian counterparts can only envy.
The following is a look at the experiences.

C OMMANDING OFFICER
Captain Evan l. Vaughan, Ir. assumed command of the
NROTC Unit at the University in lune of 1979. Captain
Vaughan had dreamed of attending the Naval Academy ever
since he had first visited it as a child. His dream came true
and he graduated in 1954. Captain Vaughan entered flight
training and in 1955 was designated a Naval Aviator. After
earning his wings, Captain Vaughan served as a pilot in Patrol
Squadron Forty-four homeported in Norfolk, Virginia. In
1959, Captain Vaughan was appointed to the faculty bf the
Na val Academy. After serving as an instructor of Midshipmen
for two years he attended the Naval Postgraduate School

C olonel W.l. Scheuren
Major Maxwell 0. Iohnson reported to the NRC TC Unit in
the summer of 1979 from the 1st Tracked Vehicle Battalion
stationed in Okinawa where he commanded Company 8
MA Vi. A 1968 graduate of the University of Santa Clara in
Santa Clara, California with a degree in history, Major john-
son also holds an MA. in International Affairs from the
American University in Beirut and is working on his Doctor-
ate in Foreign Affairs here at the University. In the Unit,
Major Iohnson serves as the Marine Officer Instructor, Bat-
talion Staff Advisor, Rifle and Pistol Range Officer, Safety
and Physical Security Officer, and Advisor to the Semper
Fidelis Society. The Major and his wife, Anna lee, reside in
Charlottesville with their two daughters, Ann Marie and Bar-
bara, and son, lee.
The new fourth year Instructor is U. Patrick 0. Gottschalk,
a native Virginian from Springfield. Commissioned from the
Naval Academy in 1975 with a degree in Oceanography, he
reported here in August. When asked to compare Academy
oliicers and R0 TC officers, lt. Gottschallr said that he saw no
professional or motivational difference. But he did point out
that it has to make a difference to be totally immersed in the
Navyas opposed to only 4 V: hours a week. it. Gottschalk
knew something about the University before he arrived,
since he previously knew our third year Instructor lt. Gra-
ham. They served together aboard the U55 Yarnell tCG- 17;,
homeported in Norfolk. lt. Gottschallr's duties on the Yar-
neII included ASW Officer, and legal Officer. lt. Gottschalk
recommends surface line for anyone who wants responsibil-
ity right away. He feels that a young officer gets the best
"hands on" experience and best test of leadership in the
surface fleet. During his spare time he enjoys picture taking,
reading, and painting.
lieutenant loseph Doswell, Ir. joined the unit last August
as the first year instructor. lt. Doswell was born in the heart
of Dixie: Montgomery, Alabama. After attending the Marion
Institute for one year, it. DosweII joined the Navy and in
1969 entered the Naval Academy Preparatory School. He
graduated from Annapolis in 1973 with a 8.5. in Operation
Analysis. Lt. DosweII served on the pre-commissioning crew
of the nuclear carrier USS Nimitz, and qualified as a Nuclear
Engineer. He then attended Dmage Control School in Phila-
delphia before serving as D. C . A. for two years on the nuclear
cruiser USS Texas where he qualified as a Surface Warfare
Officer. lt. Doswell has been awarded the National Defense
Medal, the Vietnam Service Medal, and a Unit Citation with
Battle "E" efficiency award. lt. Doswell is an avid and skilled
racquetball player, and a collector of antique paintings and
plates. He presently resides in Earleysville.
lt. john H. Woodhouse, Ir. reported to the unit in 1976
from the Noriolk-based guided missile destroyer U55 Claude
V. Ricketts. Sewing as EW Officer, C IC Officer, and Naviga-
tor, lt. Woodhouse completed two Med deployments dur-
ing which he participated in na val operations arising from the
Yom Kippur War in 1973 and in rescue operations following
the collision of the USS Bellmap and the USS Iohn F. K enne-
dy in 1975. it. Woodhouse earned an AB. in History from

Payne. He comes to us from the blue skies of lacksonville,
Florida, where he served with Patrol Squadron 24 for three
years. lieutenant Payne attended Duke University in their
NROTC program and also as a Theta Chi fraternity brother.
He graduated in 1975 with a degree in Botany. In his time as
an NFO with Patrol Squadron 24 lieutenant Payne spent time
in various parts of the world, including Sicily and Iceland. He
says he misses flying, but sees man y benefits in his assignment
here at the University. He feels that the more relaxed atmo-
sphere will give him a chance to think about his Na val career
and aspirations. He is very pleased with his new job. During
his stay at the University the Lt. also plans to take a few
courses and supplement the education he received at Duke.
' In addition to his duties as second year instructor, Lt. Payne
also serves as Public Affairs Officer, Asst. Recruiting Officer,
and Second Company Advisor. He has also taken an interest
in the Unit's basketball team, as he and his family travelled to
UNC for the NROTC tournament. lt. Payne, his wile leslie,
and their two children presently reside in Earlysville.
Storekeeper Chief Gary l. Shipe is very happy with his
assignment to the Unit. One of the major reasons for his
happiness is that his wife also came here. She works in the
administration office, a lucky coincidence for both of them.
looking back on his almost 20 years of service, the Chief has
much to remember. He has served aboard the U55 GAL VES-
TON IClG-Sv, U55 BlAKElY tDE-1072t and the U55 CORAL
SEA tC VA 43;. His last duty assignment before coming to the
Unit was aboard the U55 SHAKORI tATF-162t. Chief Shipe
collects coins, old bottles, and Iim Beam decanters. The last
of these hobbies should make him quite popular here at the
University. The Chief will complete his naval service with his
billet here, after almost 21 years. He has enjoyed his time in
the Navy, and holds a great deal of respect for the officer
candidate programs. His word of advice is "watch out for the
Chiefs, " who often have little respect for junior officers. The
Chief hopes to work for the Charlottesville Post Office when
he retires, where he could apply many of his past skills. He
and his wife, along with their two children, Dewayne and
Elizabeth, look forward to life in Charlottesville after retire-
lieutenant lames M. Graham, the third year instructor, is a
graduate of the Officer Candidate School, Newport, RJ. He
received his commission in 1975. He has a 8.5. degree in
Education from the University of Southern Mississippi. He
was previously stationed aboard the Henry E. Yarnell tCG-
17h where he served as Assistant CIC Officer, Intelligence
Officer and EW Officer. He presently resides in Charlottes-
ville with his wife Cathy, daughter Abbie, and his new baby
son. In looking back on his experiences with both the ROTC
program and 0C5, he thinks that the OCS program better
prepares students for the fleet. One of his suggestions is that
all midshipmen attend basic training in place of third class
cruise. This would give them a better feel for the enlisted
personnel's position. He still believes that summer cruises
are a good way to show midshipmen the real Navy. One of
the reasons he requested duty here was to work on his mas-
ters in education. He also wanted the opportunity to put his
degree to work. He wants to make his classes a good time and
to show his students how to enjoy the Navy.
CtSSt Raymond E. Hasson is presently Assistant Third Year
Instructor. He also operates the unit bookroom. The Chief is
a native of Ohio. He originally intended to go to college, but
instead enlisted in the Navy after his first year. Chief Hasson
has seen duty aboard the USS GRIDLEY, and also worked in
Fleet Support Office in Athens, Greece. He then changed his
rating from Boatswain 's mate to Quartermaster. After attend-
ing submarine school, he served on the USS GRANT. Chief
Hasson has brought many projects to the Unit. His big pro-
ject this year was erecting a pool in the basement of Maury
Hall for shiphandling practice. He also takes time to maintain
the Unit's fleet of radio controlled ships. As Asst. Third Year
Instructor, his knowledge and help proved invaluable to
many of the navigation students. He has also taken on teach-
ing duties outside of the Unit. He teaches a Bible study
seminar, consistant with his interest in medieval religious art.
He also enjoys flyfishing and backpacking. Chief Hasson can
often be found in his PT gear running around grounds.
Yn C hief
Yeoman Chief Patsy Holland, the Unit's administrative as-
sistant, has had a variety of assignments during her career.
Born in Rayville, louisiana, she began her life in the Navy at
the Naval Station, Brooklyn, New York, followed by duty at
the Officer Candidate School, Newport, Rhode Island. Her
first European tour was with Headquarters, European Com-
mand in Germany and France. Chief Holland then returned
to the United States to serve at the Recruit Training Com-
mand Center in Bainbridge, Maryland, and later as Assistant
Chief of Na val Personnel for Women at the Bureau of Person-
nel in Washington, D.C. She crossed the Atlantic again to
handle protocol for two years with the Allied Southern
Forces in Naples before being assigned to her present post at
the University of Virginia. Though she was initially surprised
at her assignment to Charlottesville, Chief Holland is very
happy here. She is delighted with the area and the friendli-
ness of the townspeople. In her spare time, Chief Holland
enjoys reading, cooking, attending the theater, and listening
to music. She resides in Albemarle County.
Mrs. Ianet S. Parkinson, one of the Unit's secretaries,
came to work here in lune, 1969. Prior to that time she had
worked in the Personnel Office at the Army's judge Advo-
cate General School. She says she has always enjoyed her iob
here with the Navy and is extremely glad she made the
change. Mrs. Parkinson is responsible for most of the work
that allows the Unit to run so smoothly and efficiently. Her
hobbies include Iatchet hooking, reading, swimming, and
playing tennis. She lives in Charlottesville with her two
daughters, linda and janet. Our other secretary, Mrs. Ka y D.
Shipe, came to the Unit in September of 1978 with her hus-
band, who is the Unit's Financial Assistant. Previously, Mrs.
Shipe worked in the Civilian Personnel Office at the Naval
Air Station, Oceana, Virginia. She spends much of her free
time reading and cultivating roses, and she lists cleaning
house and issuing Chief Shipe freshly pressed khakis as addi-
tional "hobbies." Caring for her two children, DeWayne
and Elizabeth, takes up the rest of Mrs. Shipe 's time.
SSgt Charles A. Abbey was the Assistant Marine Officer
Instructor at the Unit from March, 1977, to March of this
year. He has served in the Marine Corps for eleven years and
trained with British, Korean, Filippino, and Canadian Ma-
rines. He was a drill instructor at the Marine Corps Recruit
Depot, Farris Island, for three years and played safety for the
Marine C orps football team for five years. He served in Viet-
nam with the 2d Recon Battalion from 1969 to 1970. The Civil
War is $531 Abbey's main interest. t He was promoted to
Gunnery Sergeant and is currently 5-3 Operations Chief for
the 3d Recon Battalion on Okinawa.
GySgt Philip F. O'Donnell re-
placed 55g! Abbey in April of this
year. Before coming here. GySgt
O'Donnell was Chief Drill Instruc-
tor at the Naval Aviation Cadet
School, Pensacola. He enlisted in
the Marine Corps in july, 1963, and
served two tours in Vietnam, in
1965, when he was wounded, and
in 1968. He resides in Charlottes-
ville with his wife Connie and his

NIIOTC does not con-
sist of simply drill and
classroom instruction. To
insure that we will be
ready for commissioning
there are many and var-
ied organizations and ac-
tivities to challenge and
motivate us as midshi -
men. Our two societies
- the Trident Society and
Semper Fidelis e pro-
mote a better under-
standing of the naval ro-
lession. The Rifle an Pis-
tol teams develop marks-
manship. The Honor
Guard travels around the
state land even makes an
annual trek to Mardi
Gras; representing the
Unit before military and
civilian audiences. Our
many activities include
the Orientation Week,
field days, companly; com-
petition, Mess Nig t, and
Milita Weekend. The

The Semper Fidelis Society is an or-
ganization open to anyone enrolled in
a program leading to a commission in
the United States Marine Corps. Its ac-
tivities are designed to further the
professional interests of its members.
In the past the Society has invited such
speakers as the Sergeant Major of the
Marine Corps and Brig. Gen. MacMiI-
Ian, who leads the recruiting effort.
Any other special events, including
the Marine C orps Birthday Ball and at-
fairs given in honor of fellow Marines,
are planned and directed by the Soci-
ety. In addition to listening to the ex-
perts, Semper Fidelis members ex-
change opinions and advice with each
other. Everyone benefits from the in-
formal discussions of aspects of life in
the Marine Corps, "especially the
young guys, " according to Midn y C
Youngdale, President of the Society.
Semper Fidelis members develop
strong friendships through their com-
mon bond, along with an esprit that is
unmatched by any other organization.
- 1979-80 Trident 8t Semper Fidelis
The Trident Society is composed of
those outstanding midshipmen that
show particular promise in the Naval
profession. Dedicated to the advance-
ment of understanding in matters that
pertain to the Navy, the society spon-
sors several awards recognizing schol-
arship and professionalism. The soci-
ety also hosts the Spring picnic and
various other social activities. All work
and no play makes an officer a dull

- 1979-80 Rifle-Pistol Teams
The Rifle Team suffered many of
the morale setbacks that the Pistol
Team suffered -'- because of
construction at Tulane, no Mardi'
Gras Tournament was held this year.
The team was deeply disappointed
because that competition is usually
the high point of the year. The team
did participate in a tournament at
the Naval Academy and one at the
Virginia Military Institute. They also
participated in several "postal"
matches including the Secretary of
the Navy match which enabled them
to compete with other NROTC
Team captain Darren Hutchinson
injured his knee halfway through the
year and was replaced by
Christopher Browne. Tom Tyrell,
Ward Melhuish, and Rupert
Caldwell were the upperclass
members of this year's team. Robert
Carl, Robert Blackman, Robert
Thomason and Robert Galbreaith
were the new fourth class members
on the team.
The team fires .22 caliber long
target rifles at three competitive
positions: Olfhand lstandingi,
kneeling, and prone. Each member
is expected to practice at least four
hours a week, and is also
responsible for cleaning and caring
for his weapon.
The Navy pistol team had another
active year. Unfortunately, because
of construction at Tulane University's
pistol range, the team was not able
to compete there during Mardi Gras,
and this caused a slight slump in
morale. Not only does the
tournament offer the team a fun
week on Bourbon Street, it also
provides the team the chance to
compete on a shoulder-to-shoulder,
The team did participate in an
away meet at the University of North
Carolina with seven or eight other
NROTC teams and finished a very
respectable second. The pistol team
hosted the us. Military Academy at
Maury Hall in early February. The
team also participated in several
"postal" matches with NROTC
teams from across the country.
The pistol team tires .22 caliber
High Standard, semi-automatic
pistols. The team members are Mike
Perry, Dean De Wolfe, lee
Bowersox, Tom lohnson, Pat
Allman, Iohn Boyd, Eric Grabowsky,
lack White, Mark Cordle, and Tom
O'Keefe. They practice four hours a
week, firing 31, 100 rounds during
the year. The team looks forward to
more tournaments next year and
hopes to continue building a strong
- 1979-80 HONOR GUARD
The Honor Guard is a very special part of the NRO TC Unit. The purpose of
the Honor Guard is to represent the battalion and the University in both the
state and the country, with the purpose of recruiting for both. The
organization, due to its volunteer nature, thrives on motivation. Things such as
a "Gold Alert" - an occasional get together for a few beers and a good time
- help to build a sense of fellowship and "fraternity" among the members.
The Honor Guard enjoyed another fun trip to Mardi Gras this year. The party
found itself in Pat O'Brian 's one night, where they "raised a little hell. " But
the memory which seemed most firmly embedded was the sight of Paul
Sheppard and Hal Hayes dropping their jaws to the floor as the strippers in one
joint did the same with their clothes.
- 9-25 A ugust 1979
- Orienta tion Week
It begins all of a sudden with an un-
expected attack above the ears! There
is a lot to learn: to spring to attention
when a superior enters the room; to
shine brass until it gleam: and your
arm aches. Each night of the week
long orientation it takes a little less
time to polish and iron and the fear at
the start he ins to la e. The physical
fitness tra ning remains strenuous
though, when each morning at 0545
the whole PFT is performed. learning
how to drill is an adventure. Did you
ever know before that you had two left
feet? The Staff Sergeant shows a few
basic maneuvers and then it's prac-
tice, practice, practice. As the week
progresses the routine becomes easi-
er, and the transformation into Officer
Candidates is complete. The last day is
the formal swearing-in; time for some
Each semester one drillperiod is set aside for a
field day. Teams from each company compete
against one another in such events as tug of war,
beer chug, human pyramid, wheelbarrow race,
dizzy izzy, and pilot races. According to Midn
Rolhwell, field days are held to foster company
spirit and camaraderie, break up the routine of
leadership lab schedule, and to provide a good
time. One look at the midshipmen pictured
here shows that field day fulfills its objectives.
Struggling competitors and cheering spectators
all enjoy the high-spirited atmosphere as they
seek to advance their companies' fortunes.
"DRESS AND co VER!"
And who could forget drill competition. Intended as a measurement of
military hearing, you always had the idea that it was a plot to embarass
you. If your platoon was lucky, you wouldn 't 30 first and everyone relaxed
abit when you saw how poorly the other guys were doing. Then it was your
turn, and sure enough, when you got through an about face you were on
your left foot while everyone else was on their right. All of that pales in
comparision to the memory of Franzen marching his platoon into the
chain-link fence on Gilmer Field. Strange things pop into your head as you
wait for the Captain to get to you during PNS Inspection. You understand
how Poe's protaganist in " The Telltale Heart" must have felt; you take
deep breaths to calm yourself. You wonder who did the paint job in
Halsey Hall. Then, as the Captain stands opposite you, you try not to look
in his eyes and you find yourself checking out his cover. You hope he
won 't check the inside of your buckle. Then he 's gone. You heave a sigh
of relief, and resume your contemplation of the Halsey Hall paint job.
Around Charlottesville, when the weather
starts to cool in the Fall, and again when it begins
to warm up in the Spring, NROTC midshipmen
know it's time to break out the track shoes and
jogging shorts in preparation for the Marine
Corps Physical Fitness Test tPFD. The PFT con-
sists of three events. A perfect score of one-
hundred is given to those who run three miles in
eighteen minutes or less. Eighty sit-ups in two
minutes or less earns another hundred points,
and at five points apiece, you need twenty pull-
ups to score a perfect total of three-hundred on
the PFT. University midshipmen evidently recog-
nize the need for good physical conditioning.

of the Navy's Nuclear Power branch.
Speakers this year ranged from the academic to the
professional, from the blount and inspiring to the
"please pass the No-doz' '. In the fall we heard Marine
General McMillan waxing eloquent about the difficul-
ties of drawing competent individuals into the mili-
tary. In the spring we became more familiar with the
events in the Persian Gulf through the incisive presen-
tations ofgovernment professor Ramazani. The poten-
tial nukes among us were informed of the golden op-
portunities of glowing in the dark by Commanders
Dewhurst and lanes, while learning of the "eccentric-
ities" of the father of the nuclear program - Admiral
Hyman Rickover. Through it all we gained an appre-
ciation for the varied and expanding missions of the
Navy and Marine Corps. Expectations for our perfor-
mances are high.
- Mess Night, 19 October
This was the first year that mess night was held in the
LA. 6'. School. The first order of business was cocktails and
chit-chat in the Hall of Flags. After some loosening of the
tongue we headed, several at a time, up the elevators to
the spacious tit not palacial; Officers' Club. We waited
patiently for the President of the Mess to motion "seats",
and then it was "bring on the chow!" As soon as dinner
was through and the smoking lamp was lighted, Rear
Admiral Rumble shared some wisdom with us, garnered
from his years of experience in the Navy. Then it was time

We were honored with a visit from former PNS, Captain
Stark. Here we see Manthe and Youngdale showing up

Cracker lacks?" Houghton and lngebretson are eyeing
something! "Psst! I think Rudasill's asleep. " Above all, a

- Military Weekend
Starting with the Pass-in-
Review on Saturday morning
and running until early
Sunday a.m. the Military
Weekend demonstrates the
best of what the Naval
Service has to offer: pure
professionalism and good
times. During the Pass-in-
Review the midshipmen and
cadets from all branches of
the Armed Forces are
reviewed by the University's
president. This year we were
treated to an exhibition by
the Air Force Drill Team as
well. later, it was off with
the Service Dress White
footwear and on with the
"boogie shoes" as we shook
a leg at the Military Ball.
What is it all about? Pride.
And comraderie. That is the
NROTC condensed into 24
- TRIDEN T SOCIETY
The sky was clear and the day was warm as
the annual Trident Society picnic got under
way on 19 April. First Company won the sac-
cer competition and the 'Statf handily beat
the first-class midshipmen, 12-8. But the
sense of competition faded away as we sat
down to franks and soda and informal con-
versation. All in the highest traditions of the
. . . COCKTAIL PARTY
When C ommissioning approaches we know it '5 time
for two things: 1. t Get those final papers and projects
in so we can graduate on time, and 2.; Dust off the
drinking glasses for the Trident Society cocktail party.
Here we see Midshipmen and officers alike enjoying
the effects of the potentpotables. Upper left: Andrew

- C OMMISSIONING
Ah! The day we have all been looking forward
to. After the oath of office our loved ones re-
place our midshipmen insignia with ensign or
second lieutenant shoulder boards, and an era is
over. No more company competition, swim
tests, or leadership development seminars. Our
training period is far from over, though. Soon
we will have more responsibility than man y of us
have ever had before. Can we handle it? We will
see. One thing is sure: no matter what we went
through as midshipmen, the challenges were
miniscule compared to what we will face in the
fleet. It is a time for reflection. But let us keep an
eye on the future.
Dean DeWolfe received both the
Commanding Officer's Sword and
the Distinguished Marine Award.
Rick Baxley receives the "Most improved midshipman"
A very special day.
