Electronic Lucky Bag: Second Battalion

Charles Eithel Galloway

Evansville, Indiana

Hailing from the Hoosier State of Indiana, Chuck came to Annapolis after two years at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. Chuck made his presence felt Plebe Summer and continued to do so during his time at USNA. He was one of the all-Youngster infield in 1961, and he impressed many with his smooth play at shortstop. Chuck was always one for a lively party and exhibited his prowess in this field whenever leave, football trips, cruise, or a weekend came around. Quite an avid record collector, Chuck showed a partiality to good smooth jazz and was always in the mood to add to his record collection. An average student, Chuck appeared to have little trouble with the academics while at the Naval Academy. During second class summer Chuck enjoyed the flying and may try for a career in Naval Aviation. Whichever branch of the service Chuck chooses to enter upon graduation he is sure to be a success. He will always be remembered by those who knew him best as a good man with a tremendous will to win.

Because of his easy going nature, great sense of humor, and natural talent for making friends, he became one of the most well-liked men in the class. Sam also had a serious side. While at the Academy he took his academics seriously and had little or no trouble. Whatever Sam does in the future, success and many friends will be sure to follow.
