Patrick Emberson Wright

San Diego, California

Pat joined the varsity after a free-and-easy year of NROTC at Oregon State. However even the rigors of plebe year were traversed smoothly due to his great ability to apply himself to hard work. During his upperclass years, he turned this same determination to studying, company sports, and girls. This drive did not affect his mild manner and good naturedness for which he is well known. Pat loves to travel and made trips to Europe during his leaves with a voluntary submarine cruise youngster summer. Having lived in many sections of the United States, Pat has decided and firmly maintains that the West Coast is heaven on earth. Pat's capacity for hard work has achieved success for him and we are sure that the future will show the same results.
