Tom Selden
Yes, I am proud to display Ohio USNA 63. Long story behind the photo: NAS Brunswick Maine, Oct 05. Ran into a retired USAF Col. Whose son was a later USNA grad. He asked me if he could submit it and I said "sure". Car is now with #3 daughter cruising the vicinity of Ohio U in Athens,OH where most of the students donŐt even know what US means. Will get a pic with me in it when she gets home around Thanksgiving (2007). BEAT ARMY ! Tom Selden



Bob LaGassa
Bob's NH plate is "USNA - 63". (Evidently, NH just started authorizing a "dash" in license plates, because--per Bob--Jack MacDonald has had the NH "USNA 63" plate "locked up" for years--See above). Shown next to Tom O'Brien's Virginia plate which is now Al Sherman's.

Richard Pace
Richard Pace's Vanity Plate-- I am submitting the attached. It was shot in February 2012 during a snowstorm at Northstar ski resort in North Lake Tahoe. Perhaps you'd like a bit of history. I have had the vanity plate since 1976, when it was purchased for me by my mother as a birthday present. She later told me that when she visited the DMV to check on the availability of the plate, she found that graduation years from the 1930s up until the present (and including four or five years into the future) were all taken, with one exception: 1963. Kind of an odd coincidence, don't you think?
