F X a F REFAC E This publication is intended as a mean- ingful reminder of the events and activities of Vanderbilt NROTC during the 1982-83 academic year. The effort has been made to represent as many facets of midshipman life as is possible. Working on Galleon has been an enjoyable task. It is hoped that you the reader will enjoy perusing the Galleon as much as the staff did in producing it. Advisor: LT Dave O. Childers Managing Editor: Warren A.

C ' f. vin-.S 4 e Corps The Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps Program is responsible for developing leadership in future officers. The environment is tough, challenging, and academically demand- ing. Not everyone has what it takes to balance both academic and military requirements simul- taneously. But those who are commissioned in May of their senior year have good reason to be proud of their achievements. Many seniors take the opportunity to pause in reflection of the events of the past four years. Freshman Orientation seems to occupy a spe- cial place in everyone's heart. The transforma- tion from teen to adult was greatly accelerated in the span of a few days. The essentials of drill, military customs and traditions, and bear- ing in uniform were compacted into this impor- WA-5 f' .fi- tant week. Q L uv -Af-A, . As their freshmen year proceeded, the mid- shipmen became more relaxed in their new en- vironment and more conhdent in themselves. Friendships were made and enthusiasm was renewed. Summer cruise gave the third class valuable hands-on experience with the areal Navyj, gg g A Experience and performance were gradually rewarded with positions of more responsibility. The followers soon became the leaders. The process of crossing the line into Advanced Standing welded the class into a stronger, more tightly-knit organization. Some of the better remembered events are the Navy Ball, Mess Night, Homecoming, company football, and of course, second class cruise at Camp Coronado in fabulous San Diego, California. When he has been graduated and commis- sioned, the officer has proven himselfg and yet now, the test is just beginning. New greater chal- T lenges will face the officer, but he can be assured ' of having the best preparation possible. DEDZCATION LT LAMBERT 1 P LT Vince Lambert served two years as the nuclear power officer at Vanderbilt. In the course of his duties, he also managed to teach Ships Engineering Systems and to advise the first class midshipmen. Despite the fact that he also was enrolled in graduate courses at Owen School of Management, he found time to coordinate activities for the Mariners, Blue Angels, and Windjammers. However, LT Lambert was best known for his easy and unforced rapport with the midship- men. His attention to duty and his devotion to the Battalion were trademark characteristics of his stay at Vanderbilt. His presence at the Unit was keenly felt by all, and the midshipmen who knew him will remember him always. LT Lambert was graduated from the Rose- Hullman Institute of Technology with bachelors degrees in both mathematics and physics. After completion of OCS and Nuclear Power School, he attended Prototype Reactor Training and Submarine School in New London, CT. He then served three years as a member of the Blue crew aboard USS John Marshall QSSBN 6111. ul' After leaving two eventful years at Vanderbilt NROTO, he returned to New London for Department Head School and Advanced Submarine Officers Training. He was then signed to a 688 class attack sub out of Pearl Harbor. The Battalion wishes the best for LT Lambert and hopes to continue the spirit he has instilled here at Vandy. ,.....L QMC .FRANCZSCU Chief Fransisco believes the most important characteristic in a young division officer is to care 'for his men. The young officer must be responsive to their needs. Ulf a young seaman knows he can count on his officer, he will always respect him and work as hard as he can, because he is proud to serve him." One of the biggest things that a division officer must be aware of is his responsibility to his men. "lf you make a promise, you had better be serious about it. That young enlisted is counting on you, he will expect. you to uphold your end of the bargain. The minute you feel that you can not-keep your promise, you should explain the situation to your searnang otherwise, he may never trust you again." ln his twenty-two years in the Navy, the QMC has served at twelve different duty stations, but he says lie has obtained the most sat isfsic-tion here at VUNROTC '. "This was a great change for meg l feel fortunate to have had some input at the training level for officers." When asked if he felt he had been successful in his efforts, he replied: "By and large, I believe so. I've been in the Navy over twenty years, and I think I know whats going on in the fieet: how it works and how it can work better. This is mainly what l've tried to tell the midshipmen that are going on to the fleet as division officers. Their's is certainly no easy job: in fact, most of what they will have to do they will be expected to learn AS.-XP. One of the toughest things for a young ofhcer to do is to suggest. a change when he sees something that can be improved. Sometimes, you may think it can't be done, but you can change the inetliciences of your shipf' "It has been a pleasure to serve here at Vanderbilt. lt's a great. way to end a career in the Navy. I can see that the future is very bright for the military by looking at the midshipmen who will one day be commissioned. I have no .Mei doubts that our nation will remain strong and well-protectedfj Chief Fransisco realizes that each midship- man has enormous pressure on him to do well in college. To each of us, he says: f'Bear with it! May there always be calm seas and following winds." I believe that I speak for the entire battalion when I say, "Thank you, Chief. Thanks for your advice and your support. May God bless you."

He enjoys working at Vanderbilt and teach- ing the senior Management and Leadership classes. He wants to instill in the seniors especially the practice of leadership by example. The best way to improve the Battalion as a whole, COL Phillips argues, is to motivate those in leadership billets to use their knowledge, experience, and skill in the teaching of the underclassmen. His ultimate goal is to create the best possible officer material for service in the Fleet. PHILLIPS COL Phillips has been Commanding Ofiicer of Vanderbilt NROTC ever since he relieved CAPT Banks in October 1981. During his tenure here. he has worked hard to build up the size of the Battalion through an intensive recruiting pro- gram. Another of COL Phillips' goals has been to increase the Battalion's average GPA. COL Phillips was born in Paterson, NJ and attended Springfield College in Springfield, KLA where he earned both bachelors and masters degrees. He was commissioned in June 1957 through the Platoon Leaders Class Program and has served in a variety of stafl' and field billets since that time. Stall' experience includes: ad- jutant of an infantry battalion and regiment, staff ollicer for Commander in Chief, Pacific, Aide to Deputy Chief of Staff, Plans and Programs, lleadquarters, Marine Corps, and Assistant Chief Of Staff, G-l of an infantry division. His field experience entails: command of Marine detach- ment aboard an aircraft carrier, command of a rifle company, infantry battalion, headquarters battalion, and most recently, CO of Camp Fuji, Japan. COL Phillips also served a tour as advisor to a Vietnamese Army battalion and division. - '0nnL,.,. an... CDR PETERSON CDR Richard S. Peterson was executive officer of Vanderbilt NROTC from fall of 1979 until summer of 1983. A native of Michigan, CDR Peterson was graduated from the Illin.ois Institute of Technology with a bachelors degree in psychology and a minor in physics. Among several of his former billets are Combat Information Officer aboard USS O'Bannon QDD 450i in Pearl Harbor, Operations Officer aboard USS William C. Favre QDD 763l, and Executive Officer of a PBR fpatrol river boatl in Vietnam. After these at-sea billets, he attended the Naval Postgraduate School where he received a masters degree in oceanography. Before coming to Vanderbilt, he served as XO aboard USS Fairfax County. While at the unit, CDR Peterson taught Navigation and Ships Operation and acted as advisor to the juniors He earned the respect of x N the midshipmen for his professional knowledget I t I about the Navy He is now stationed in Brazil where he is an advisor to the Brazilian Navy. 1 l M- '- - --- CAPT Clauer graduated from Cedarville College in 1972, after previously serving as an en- listed in the Marine Corps. He received his com- mission through OCS, and is an infantry officer by MOS. CAPT Clauer has served as platoon corn- mander, company xo, company commander, and most recently, as logistics officer for lst Battalion, 2nd Marines, formerly commanded by Colonel Phillips. CAPT Clauer has also served as Plans and Protocol Officer at Quanticoy Virginia, and as staff secretary for the corn- manding general. CAPT Clauer is the Battali0D Advisor and Operations Officer for the unit. He also sponsors the Semper Fidelis society. H9 describes his duties here as achallengillg and Cer' tainly different from any previous aSSigDment"n He believes that NROTC provides some of the best officers in the fleet because the Program al' lows a four year period of training and evalua- tion, Permitting the unit to develop each mid' Shipman to his full potential. 1- , 1 T HILDERS LT Dave Childers came to Vanderbilt NROTC this year as on of three new officers after having been at sea for three eventful years. At the unit he is both the third class ad- visor and American Military History instructor. Apart from this, he advises the band and the publication staff who produce the Galleon and Tradewinds. Prior to beginning his career in the Navy as a surface warfare officer LT Dave Childers atf tended University of Notre Dame and graduated from NROTC in 1979 with a bachelor's degree in history. After SWOS, he served aboard the USS Fanning QFF 10761. During his tour from 1979 to 1982, he was electronics material officer, electronic warfare officer, and communications officer. LT Childers says,'fStudents are the only consumers who want less for their money." Ile stresses that the midshipmen should get the most out of the naval science classes now because this knowledge is indispensable for the future. LT Childers says that while he is impressed with the academics here, he feels that the upper-clam midshipmen should get more involved with the freshmen. 'WTSQ - A 2. -s ' welt!

He is in charge of recruiting at the unit, fourth class advisor and instructor of Freshman Naval Orientation. Aside from these duties, he coaches the bwketball team and is involved with the softball team. LT Stites graduated in 1977 from Olivet College in Michigan with a bachelor's degree in biology Upon graduation, he went to Aviation CCS and became a naval flight oflicer He then served with the attack squadron VA-35 aboard the USS Nimitz QCVN 68l, from 1979 to 1982. There he was a bombardierfnavigator in an A-6. As freshman advisor, LT Stites stresses per- formance in academics. He feels that a good per- formance in school is the key to a midshipman's future. A midshipman's academic success fre- quently exhibits his own desire to become a naval officer. X ,llf,,z?l5ll'ER Vanderbilt for about a year and a half. Having served in the Marine Corps for 17 years, he was selected for promotion to First Sergeant in December of 1982. During his duty at Vanderbilt NROTC, Gunny Warner sponsored numerous activities, including the riflefpistol team, drill team, color guard, orienteering, and softball. He desribed his duty here as "enjoyable, not too demanding", and he wished his successor much luck. Rumor has it that Gunny's promotion had something to do with a recent Semper Fi initia SKCS HUFF Everyone at VUNROTC is familiar with Senior Chief Huff. He is responsible for the pur- chasing and issuing of all uniform items, main- tenance of purchase records, disbursing of sub- sistence checks as will as being responsible for paying for tuition and books. Prior to his present tour of duty a Vandy, which began in May of 1981, Senior Chief Hull' served on board an LST and the USS ROARK, as fast frigate home ported on the West Coast. Senior Chief Huff was promoted from Chief to Senior Chief on 16 June 83. tion, however, he assures us that this is not the N C C R K case. He does admit nevertheless that "Semper Fi initiations will not be the same without mef' Chief Crocker is an integral part of the administration at VUNROTC. He serves as al- sistant in the ships office. As administraf tive assistant, Chief Crocker is responsible for keeping personell records up to date ke9P' ing track of mail and for the completion of the routine paperwork which is necessary to keep the unit functioning properly. Enlisting in 1963, Chief Croker served in the Supreme Allied Command Atlantic Theatre, later traili- ferring to the USS WOODROW WILSON QSSBN 6241 He later obtained an associates degree in business administration at Northern Villinia' Community College. He came to VUNR-OTC in 1980 after completing his duty aboard the USS ALEXANDER HAMILTON QSSBN 6171 GYSGT Wimsatt relieved GYSGT VVarner 35 AMOI in December of 1983. Before he came to Vanderbilt NROTC however, Gunny Wimsatt led a very colorful and exciting career in the Marine Corps. As a recruit, he graduated first iii his platoon, thus becoming a meritorious Private First Class. After attending Infantry Training School at Camp Pendleton, he was sent to Marine Barracks, Naval NVeapons Station, Yorktown, VA. After serving time on both Pacific and Atlantic Coasts, Wimsatt attended Drill Instructor School at Parris Island where he graduated seventh in his class. Gunny Wimsatt says that he plans to be- come very involved in the battalion, especially in the instruction of drill. He believes the only ways to improve the battalion's appearance is to develop leadership potential and command presence. NNIE J RRE T T Although somewhat new at Vanderbilt, Ms. Jarrett is seen and known by all those who have need to use the ships's office. She is respon- sible for typing official correspondence and help- ing with general paperwork. Ms. Jarrett says she enjoys the challenge of working at Vanderbilt and that her job is facilitated by the fact that she is associated with quality people. GYSGT WIMSATT .JENNIE DICKERSON Nirs. Dickerson has worked as a secretary in the administrative office since 1962. In her twenty-one years of devoted service to Yl'NllO'l'Ci', she has seen scores of both mid- shipmen and oflieers enter the wardroom of West Side llall. Mrs. Dickerson was presented an ollieial award in September of 1982 for her work in the Federal Government. Also at this award ceremony. COL Phillips made her an honorary member of the staff by bestowing upon her one of the unit windbreakers. Mrs. Dickerson is noted for her quiet yet attentive diligence to her work. COL Phillips conceded that she is responsible for maintaining the administrative office in ship-shape condition. 1 1 1 3 F l Q 1 SENZORS 9 .1 Q r' E' ' ' l 9 X l 9 3 1 in l 3 2LT Timothy Arnold ENS John Basil Physical Education Electrical Engineering N2ShVill9, TN Columbia, SC MCDEC, Qllantficol VA Nuclear Power School, Orlando, FL .ti- l . , A ,' V , ' - , 9.1 Q K- if. i 1 l ' 1 li , , Q ' 5 ga F -3' ENS Kevin Bohnstedt ENS Bruce Buck Electrical Engineering, Computer Science Physics PIHHUIUOD, FL Surface Warfare Oflicers School, Newport Naval Aviation, Pensacola, FL RI kia K . 3 ...U L 4 E l Q 2 Calvin Craig ENS Thomas France Mechanical Engineering Masters of Business Administration Murfreesboro, TN ST.

The Plan of the Week includes such events as PFT, field meet, parade practice, rifle drill, lectures and briefs, and sail training. These lab periods are useful for their educational and military value. fw 66. . ' 5 xii ' ,lj . ! I FRESHMAN ORZEN TA TION 'll U., ,L- vhs On 24 August, almost sixty-six long-haired civilians were inducted into the Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps program. The new mid- shipmen were whisked away from their somewhat anxious parents and began a week of fun and ad- venture. The Memorial Gym Hotel served all the comforts of home to the excited freshmen. After stowing their gear in Memorial, they were initiated into the fine rudiments of drill, they soon learned that lack of concentration would lead to pushups. Later that day, the Oxford House Barbershop provided each mid- Shipman with a coiifure, designed to express each person's individual taste. After their haircuts, the freshmen were tucked into their racks by their squad leaders, who were like their fathers texcept for Caroline who was like their mommyl. The next three days were a dreamy haze of garbage cans at 0430, circuit courses, PFT's, drill, and more drill. The swimming test gave a welcome break in the midst of a crowd of unpleasantries. Skit-s performed on Friday usually depicted in some way the "Chief Gunnery Officerv and the beloved Battalion Commander John Whitty. Though orientation was tough, it was a meaningful experience in the lives of the fresh- men, and all seemed to profit from the discipline, camaraderie, and fellowship. -5.- Phu nu-1 i Q E E , -- .- mm vu . . an Y ' xx sa ' PH .HM v ll an 2- FFT Most of us are familiar with the physical fitness requirements of Vanderbilt's Naval ROTC unit. Although CNET only requires a score of 135 points to pass the physical fitness test, the unit standard, as established by Colonel Phillips, is 175 points. Colonel Phillips stresses physical Htness at the unit and feels that it is an integral factor in maintaining a quality ROTC unit. In order to determine who is physically fit and who is not, the entire battalion must take the PT test once in the fall and once in the spring. For those unfortunate few who do not pass, they are assigned to remedial PT at 0600 every morning until they are able to do so. l i I I . I .v NM is a , ,t ,Q .1. .Qu K .0 - ,. .

Most thought the food was good, the band was loud, and the party a great time. Everyone who at- tended met some incredibly pretty girls and in the process got a taste of the etiquette expected of 'a Naval and Marine officer. It was a chance to dress up and have a good time, a chance to introduce that girl you hide all the time to some of your friends without fear of being embarrassed. Many people outside the unit know it as the social event of the year, and girls jump at the chance to go. But every year is a new experience, and this year was no exception. Of course, you always have your basic recep- tion line, a formidable barrier that stands be- tween the entrance and the bar. You fall in be- hind some upperclassman fwho is secretly more scared than you arej and rejoice when you realize you've just finished shaking the Colonel's hand, you haven't stepped on your date's dress, and there's no line at the bar. Dinner is also a place to relive some of those childhood fears. "Stay away from the head table," you keep repeating to yourself, and find a senior to watch so you don't eat your salad with the wrong utensil. You End the ideal place and just before you seat your date, she asks you why your chair says "Chief Crocker" on the setting. You explain that Chief Crocker is the Man of the Evening and that all the chairs are labeled like that, but you see a much better place down the table out of this terrible draft. Yet during the meal, you realize that everyone has the same reservations you do and you resolve to have a. good time anyway. To prove it, you eat all the spare cheesecakes. Then comes the highlight of the evening- the dance. This uniform is nothing compared to your John Travolta image in tight slacks, but you manage. During the dance, there are breaks for the ever-popular Mariners with their ever-popular songs from the fifties, an acl-obatic demonstration by the world-renowned Koenig brothers, and of course, the presentation of the Blue Angels. At one point you realize that that gorgeous blonde you almost asked out is with a, guy who dances a lot worse than you do, buf, maybe next year. If you're a hard core dancer, you may stay till the end, but chances are you won't remember. The Vanderbilt Navy Ball is definitely a night you won't forget, ll ,vga 3,4 lj g Q at 1 1 I I i A ,I A w 31 1 i MESS NIGHT Mess Night is a long standing tradition at VUNROTC, and this year was no exception. Mess Night is an occasion for all graduating seniors to get together before going their separate ways. Along with Prof. Howard Boorman, the guest of honor, Dean K.C. Potter and LTCOL Boehme were in attendance. Battalion Commander Kevin Bohnstedt presided over the evening festivities which began with cocktails followed by dinner and toasts. After the toasts, carrier landing qualifications, sit ups, wrestling and other daring acts were preformed by all. MARD1 GMS r P 1 f w Once again, the Battalion invaded the frenzied streets of the French Quarter for the an- nual festival known as Fat Tuesday, or more com- monly as Mardi Gras. Three complete days of partying, marching, and sightseeing gave the mid-U shipmen and their Blue Angel companions a much needed break from academic affairs. Many found the juxtaposition of seedy sideshows with elegant cafes a new experience. The parades, too, were a favorite, especially the Krewe of Endymion. Beads and tokens somehow made all the effort worthwhile. The midshipmen were soon again looking eagerly forward to next year so that they could complete their Pat O'Brien's glass collec- tions. Laissez les bons temps rouler! K y. lv. N .Al Spring Review was the accumulation of one semester's work for the unit. As the day drew near, practice became more intense. All three companies including the Band, Drill Team, and Color Guard were training daily to look their best for that Thursday. When the day finally' arrived, enthusiasm was high and it showed. The companies were formed on Alumni Lawn looking very sharp. The orders were read, awards were made and the battalion passed in review in 3, manner that impressed Chancellor Joe B. Wyatt, the guest of honor. 1 1 AWARDS JAMES G. STAIILMAN AWARD.

Second, parties tend to boost morale and to create a strong sense of camraderieg they provide a good opportunity to meet the new fresh- men and to welcome them into the unit. 1 Y SOCIALS 'H in BAN D The unit Band performed admirably during the 1982-1983 school year, despite a diminishing number of musicians. Band Co's Jeff Lawrence and Adrian Lock did an excellent job of in- stilling the discipline and musicianship neces- sary for such a small military band to gain the respect of the unit. In fact, the Band was often very useful in maintaining the battalion's rhythm throughout close order drills. The Band's perfor- mances included the Marine Corps Birthday and Ball, Fall and Spring Reviews, Mardi Gras, and the 1982 World's Fair. 3,-,-Q----,. ,BLUE ANGELS Blue Angels Let s h1t the beach making waves with LT Lambert and his harem Thursday labs with birthday cakes and kool aid a formal touch of Scarlet and Gold whrle dancing with the General Gold hands and warm hearts Christmas t1on Goodbye Hotllps and Hawkeye Mash Bash 83 When you say Mardi Gras you ve said it all we were all Special Angels at the Navy Ball A few good men we found them at VUNROTC 7 ' ' D 7 ' CC 77 ' caroling with the Mariners Superbowl celebra- . r Q t , ' , 1 , CC ' 73 7 , . . 6, . ,, COLOR GU RD The purpose of a color guard is to honor the national ensign, the Marine colors, the Navy colors, and various colors representing the unit. The VUNROTG Color Guard served this pur- Dose with excellent efliciency. Under command of Taft McNeal, the Color Guard participated during the year in such events as the Nashville Veteran's Day Parade, a C0l01'S ceremony on Vietnam Veterans' Day and Mardis Gras, VN' N , 1 l l MARINERS The 1982-83 version of the Mariners fea- tured a group of 25 midshipmen led by David Loy. Loy was the director, music selector, and , voice trainer for the troupe. LT Lambert, the unit advisor for Mariners, graciously gave of his time to schedule performances and to operate sound equipment. He also played guitar and bass to provide an instrumental backdrop. LT Lambert's talent and interest were indispensable to the success of Mariners. This past year saw the group take their talents outside campus to several high schools in the area. While performing at such schools as Cohn, Hillwood, and Franklin Road, the mid- shiprnen managed to promote the Navy's image among young people and to recruit possible mid- shipmen for the unit. All participants enjoyed working with Mariners, and most even managed to develop their voices into shower-singing per- fection.

' A I As.: I 7 The Windjammers Organization ex- perienced a tremendous growth this year under the steady helm of President John Basil and Vice President Kevin Bohnstedt. The "Jammers" suc- ceded in obtaining several high-quality midship- men and in furthering the causes of fellowship and camraderie. Lectures and briefs provided the opportunity to develop professional interest and knowledge of the Naval service. Not only were the Windjammers busy in the classroom but also in the outdoors. Sailing expeditions to the brinish deep of Percy Priest Lake gave valuable hands-on time with the wind and water. An exciting clash with Semper Fi on the rugged 4'Capture the flag game" resulted in bruises, cuts, sores, and smiling faces. The tight organization of Basil and Bohnstedt laid a solid background for the future existence of Windjammers. DRILL TEAM The Drill Team had an excellent spring season. They were trained by Gunnery Sergeant Wimsatt and commanded by Joe Sharbel. The team attended one competition sponsored by the Army in St. Louis. The team was also to attend the NROTC meet at Georgia Tech before it was cancelled. Additionally, the team participated in the Mardi Gras festivities and the Spring Review. 1 l RlFl.EfFlS'l'Ol. TEAM Gunnery Sergants Warner and Wimsatt coached this year's rifle and pistol teams, lead- ing them through stifil' competition both fall and spring semesters. The pistol team placed third at both meets they attended. After hosting a competition here in the fall, the team went to Virginia Military Institute where Brian Huddleston placed second overall. The rifle team competed at two meets in the fall, and held an invitational meet here in the spring. At the Miami of Ohio meet, Gary Smilowitz took first in the prone position. ORIEN TEERING Orienteering is a sport for those who love to PT all year long. This year, only one meet was held and that was at Auburn. Here, the meet participants were given a map and a compass which they used to find as many predesignated points possible within a time limit. The unit made a great showing with David Kirk finishing first and Mike Plaziak finishing second. SEMFER FIDELIS The Semper Fidelis Society, a brotherhood of highly motivated midshipmen fmainly MO'sl, had an exciting and rewarding year. Various activities during the year consisted of several field exercises dealing with diiferent areas of the Marine Corps, a trip visit to the Leadership- Reaction course at Fort Campbell, practice sessions for Bulldog, and the infamous initiation at Percy Warner Park. Joe Sharbel, president of the society, or- ganized many other events and parties and was very successful in upholding the best traditions of the Marine Corps and instilling in its members a close comraderie and fellowship.

The afternoon of 18 November was a dreary day indeed for the NROTC Battalion. Under an overcast sky, the Battalion football team was upset by the cadets of the Army ROTC by a score of 6-0 With a scoreless first half, the Navy team went back onto the field with an inspiring and motivated effort. Under the expertise of QB Bob Morgan, a victory was certainly well within reach. A series of short passes and handoifs led the midshipmen up the field. However the Army defense stopped the drive and took over the ball. They too were unable to score in regulation time. ,exits I l, 'Xi is - -1-' Z 1-3 f :, 'tfiti ,E Both sides being unsatisfied with a tie, the team captains decided to play a special sudden deathg the first team to score would win the game. The midshipmen received the ball first, and again triumph seemed certain. However, the Army defense halted the Navy drive by sacking the quarterback on a fourth down play. With luck obviously on their side the cadets took ad- vantage of a Navy blitz and scored on a seven yard run. The game was over, leaving many tired midshipmen and an ecstatic Army sideline. The cadets may have won the game, but clearly the true winners in spirit were the mid- shipmen. Stellar performances were handed in by such players a.s Sonnemaker, Notzon, Gass, Hogan, and Adkerson. The Navy effort was a fine team eifort operation. Sideline support was out- standing as the Navy band struck up "Anchors Awcighi' a.nd the Marine Corps Hymn.

He was known both in the military and civilian worlds as a man of dignity and un- reproachable honor. He was a leader who inspired the best out of his meng one whom others could look up to for guidance and counseling. Captain Banks had a sincere interest in people and always sought to communicate with them. The midship- men in the unit who knew him saw him as a father who cared for their welfare. Captain Banks was born in Morris, AL and was graduated from Jacksonville State University with bachelors degrees. He also managed to receive a masters degree from the University of Alabama before enlisting in the United States Navy. After serving 18 months, he reported to Officer Candidate School in Newport, RI in January of 1953. Captain Banks became one of the first aviators to complete training as a Naval Flight Officer. From 1969 to 1970, he served as XO and CO of Training Squadron Ten. Duty as Executive Oflicer of NAS Millington soon followed in 1974 and culminated in his assignment as CO to VUNROTC, Vanderbilt. Not only was he involved in the military but also in the private world. Captain Banks was a devout Christian, and he enjoyed teaching Sunday School to his young people. His first true love in life was teaching, after his retirement from the Navy in 1981, he became a teacher of English at Franklin Road Academy. However, he will probably be most remembered for his motivation, his emphasis on performance, and his love for the Navy. The staff and midshipmen of Vanderbilt NROTC join together in honoring this great man. His memory will live with us always. Our sincere condolences are extended to his wife and children, those who have suffered the most from the loss of this man.
