Charles Natale Calvano

They have good reason to be proud in the Windy City, for as outstanding as Chuck was in scholastics and sports such as baseball, football and track there, he has kept up the will to win here. An outstanding student, having his major in the social sciences, he has distinguished himself with his work on the Log, Splinter, and the Lucky Bag, and his spirited play in company cross-country and lightweight football. Plebe year was spent in the "Terrible Tenth," where he picked up the nicname "Rocky" and weathered the proverbial trials and tribulations with a smile in his heart. Liked by everybody, Chuck, with his quick wit and amiable ways, could even make us see the bright side of the "Dark Ages." As the Academy loses Chuck, the Fleet gains a bright young officer with an even brighter future.
