Electronic Lucky Bag: Third Battalion

John Dennis Conroy

Jersey City, New Jersey

Prior to entering the Academy John attended Bullis Prep School. The transition from civilian life to that of a plebe was a hard one for John, but he took it all in stride. A few of his hobbies include music, girls, and most of all, sports. John was the mainstay of the company basketball and fieldball teams, but he held football above all others. With several years experience behind him, John made the plebe and varsity football teams and held down his position at end with little difficulty. His plans for the future are not definite, but you can be sure he will excel in whatever branch of the Navy he enters after graduation. John has always extended a helping hand to anyone who needed it and can be counted on not to let his friends down. He has the knack for making people like him and working with John after graduation will be a pleasure for anyone.

Walnut Creek, California

Art came to the Academy after two years at California Polytechnic Institute where he studied aeronautical engineering. From the very beginning of his Academy career, Art established his reputation for superior academic and athletic achievement. He was captain of the plebe gymnastics team, and, as a youngster, won his letter and a third-place medal in Long Horse at the Eastern Intercollegiate Championship.
