Donald R. Gardner
Major Donald R. Gardner enlisted in the Marine Corps Reserve in 1955. He was graduated from Memphis State University in
1960 and commissioned a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Marine Corps as a result of his participation in the Platoon Leaders
Course. In 1972-3 he again attended Memphis State, this time on a Secretary of the Navy Scholarship, and was graduated with a
Master of Arts in Military History. I-le then reported to Vanderbilt NROTC to assume the duties of Marine Officer Instructor.
At Vanderbilt his primary duties have consisted of Instructor responsibilities for two Marine Option Naval Science courses,
and advisor responsibility for MO's. In addition he has voluntarily added the course in American Military Affairs to his teaching
load. He has thoroughly involved himself in these courses and his reputation as a fine instructor is known throughout the campus.
initiative, self-control, unselfishness, honor, and courage.

In addition Major Gardner's collateral duties included Marine Option recruiter, Midshipman Battalion Advisor, Rifle and Pistol
Team Advisor, Public Affairs Officer, Drill Team Advisor, and Senior Watch OfficerlSecurity Officer. All of these he has
performed in a thoroughly professional manner, characterized by enthusiasm and attention to detail. Of particular interest to him
have been those which involve contact with the midshipmen and NESEP Officer Candidates of the Unit. From him the Battalion
has learned not only the technical facts of the drill field, military ceremony, and "on your feetv leadership, but have seen his
example of professional excellence as well. He has untiringly contributed his time and effort to these advisory tasks attending
night and weekend meetings and practice sessions, coaching and counseling individuals, accompanying groups to competitions,
and in every detail backing the students to assure that they realize the benefit ofsuccessful effort.
Major Gardner is an impressive professional officer. He is competent and experienced as an infantry officer, thoroughly
dedicated to his country and the task at hand, outgoing and at ease with seniors and subordinates, and sincerely interested in the
welfare of those around him. He is active in athletics and physically fit. From the standpoint of the "whole man" concept he is
exceptional in every respect and must be considered one of the outstanding leaders in the Naval Service. The midshipmen of the
Vanderbilt NROTC Battalion are grateful for the privilege of knowing Major Gardner. We will miss him.
The young American responds quickly and readily to the exhibition of
qualities of leadership on the part of his officers. Some of these qualities are
industry, energy, initiative, determination, enthusiasm, firmness, kindness,

QMC JOSEPH R. LYON
ASSISTANT NAVIGATION INSTRUCTOR
Chief LYON is the lucky man who is best known to
midshipmen as the provider of their textbooks. The son of a
sailor, the Chief hails from Norfolk, Virginia, and since his
I960 enlistment has seen duty with the USS HORNET
QCVS-12l, USS FORRESTAL QCVA-591, USS CONSTELLA-
TION QCVA-64l, USS TILLA MOOK IATA-192j, and most
recently, the USS KITTYHAWK QCV-631. He has also
attended the Naval Survival School at Warner Springs,
Califomia. He and his wife, Beatrice, have two children.
GYSGT GERALD D. HAAS, USMC
ASSISTANT MARINE OFFICER INSTRUCTOR
A native of Hillsdale, Michigan, Gunny Haas has had a varied
career in the Marine Corps. Since his enlistment in l961 he has
served as an F4-B plane captain, a data analyst, and a drill
instructor at MCRD Parris Island. He and his wife, Linda, are
the parents of six children.
SK1 ELWYN L. LEYLAND
SK1 LEYLAND enlisted in 1963 and has seen general duty at
NAS Meridian, Mississippi, aboard USS DODGE COUNTY
QLST-7221, USS MULIPHEN QAKA-56l, and USS FOR-
RESTAL QCVA-59j, as well as tours with the Naval Security
Groups in Bremerhaven, Germany and Lajes Field, Azores, and
a stint in that paradise in the Caribbean, Gitmo Bay. He and
his wife, Patti, are the parents of two children, Sean Patrick
and Heather Lynn.
YNC DONALD E. MILLER
Chief MILLER is a Yankee from South Portland, Maine -in
case you couldn't tell by listening to him. Since his enlistment
in 1962 the Chief has served as a Ship's Yeoman on the USS
TILLS KDE-7481, USS MILLER QDD-5351. USS HARTLEY
QDE-1029j, and USS ZELLARS QDD-777j, as well as in the
CINCPAC staff's Flag Administration Unit as Assistant NCOIC
in the office of the Deputy for Command and Control U3-CJ
and as Captain's Yeoman, HELANTISUBRON EIGHT. He and
his wife, Miriam, have two children, Chris and Michelle.
The Unit's two lovely and helpful secretaries are Miss Jennie Dickerson and Mrs. Janelle Gervickas. To a
large degree the work these two ladies do, which most of us take for granted, is what allows the Unit to run
so smoothly and efficiently.
Miss Dickerson came to the Unit in 1962 and since then has seen six CO's and five XO's come and go.
Raised here in Nashville and happy with her job, Miss Dickerson hopes she will be able to stay on at the
Unit for many more years.
Mrs. Gervickas lives here in Nashville with four of her children. She has a son in the Navy and a married
daughter living in California. Mrs. Gervickas has been with the Unit since 1970.
