Electronic Lucky Bag: First Battalion

Albert Watkins Key

Marshall, Texas

Albert Watkins Key, known to some of the fairer sex as Albie, is a strong-hearted, romping, stomping longhorn from Texas, and don't you forget it! Besides wearing that Texas look about him, Al is also readily identified by his receding hairline and flat-footed duck walk. As a true friend he is uncomparable. In fact, even when bricked on blind dates by his friends, he continues to wear an innocent and loving smile--until after the hop! In the way of sports Al specializes in blistering his hands on the gymnasium parallel bars, or on nicer afternoons, he is seen waddling around the tennis courts. In all seriousness, Al is picked by his friends to lead his class in accomplishments and goals no matter what field he enters.

Eugene Gerard Kreinik

New York, New York

Two weeks after graduation from Bishop DuBois High School in New York City, Jerry became an official member of the Brigade. He was an avid sports fan with an interest in almost all of the sports offered at the Academy. His participation in brigade boxing plus numerous intramural teams attests to this fact. Academically, Jerry was constantly in the upper portion of his class. He was on and off the Superintendent's List, and he concentrated his main interests into French. Although his plans are not definite, he will be found either in Naval Aviation or Navy line.
