Among the new additions to the Vander-
bilt NROTC staff is YNI l,aPierre. Ile en-
listed in the Navy on 31 August 1972 and
went through boot camp in Orlando, Florida.
After graduating from boot camp, his first
major command was aboard the FSS Forre-
stal, CV-59, where he struck for the yeoman
rating. After serving his time there, he ww
transferred to Attack Squadron 75 at Oceana,
Va. in September 1975. Later commands in-
cluded the Nuclear I'ower Training lfnit at
Ballston Spa, NY. and at l'ersonnel Support
Detachment in Scotia, NY.
In April 1980 he attended Submarine
School in Groton, Ct. to prepare for his
transfer to the 1758 Los Angeles, SSN-688in
May 1980. P.O. I,al'ierre was then trans-
ferred to the FSS .lohn King, DDC-3 in
November 1982. lle left the PSS King in
February 198-1 in order to make the transi-
tion to YIFNROTC' duty by .-Xpril 1981. Since
this is a four year duty station, we should all
get to know PO. I,aI'ierre well. When asked
about being stationed here, he replied, "The
unit has a more pleasant, better atmosphere
than other commands and it doesn't get in
the way." We can only wonder what he means
by that portion of his statement.
On a more serious note, PO. I,aPierre
reenlisted for a period of six years on 11 Cc-
tober 1984 at the battalions celebration of
the Nayy's birthday. Welcome aboard P.O.
LaPierre and congratulations!
