Clinton Ward Bond

Baton Rouge, Louisiana

Ward came to the Academy from the swamplands of southern Louisiana after spending one glorious "fraternity-type" year at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, Georgia. Being acquainted with the type of life associated with a fraternity, Ward quickly adjusted to life at USNA finding plebe year not unlike his year as a "pledge." Upon his arrival here he continued to be active in the various club activities offered to him by the Academy as well as being an outstanding oarsman on the 150# crew team. His small frame, however, is greatly outweighed by his strong ambition and energetic character which made it natural for him to obtain the many friendships that he has. Possessing a cheerful attitude and amicable personality, Ward is sure to be a valuable asset to any command he joins.
