I'm sure most everyone hm already met
our newest member of the support staff,
Wanda. Rucker. Wanda is easily recogniz-
able by her personality and outlook. It's very
easy for most everyone to get on Wanda's
good side considering she has but one pet
peeveg people bugging her las in the case of
this int-erviewl. Her pct peeve is understand-
able however, considering she has three small
children at home, Natasha Q71 Felicia ISI,
and Denitra She is a native Nashvillian
and graduated from Maplewood High School.
Mrs. Rucker is very happy and pleased to be
working with the unit. She feels the unit is
very productive, and is an asset to the uni-
versity. MI already fecl like I'm part of' the
unit" Wanda says, and credits this to her co-
workers and all of the officers. When asked
about the midshipmen, she simply replied
"great" YVith this her closing statement, she
busily went back to work behind her desk.

Mrs. Dickerson began working as secre-
tary at VUNROTC in 1962. During her 23
years of service in the administrative oflice,
Mrs. Dickerson has seen many midshipmen
enrolled in the unit and many receive their
commission. Mrs. Dickerson feels that it is
interesting to see the change in midshipmen
as they go through the program. Mrs. Dick-
erson not only maintains personnel records,
but helps hold the unitls admisistrative of-
fice together. She is proud of the fact that
the VUNROTC unit was ranked number one
by CNET for our administrative operations.
This designation reflects on Mrs. Dickerson,
in the job she performs, and the pride she
takes in her work.

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!
