USNA Class of '63

Electronic Lucky Bag: Third Battalion

Jary William Lewis

Springdale, Arkansas

After a year at Arkansas Tech. and nineteen months in the fleet, Lew came to the Academy via NAPS. Being well prepared for Academy life, he found the academics relatively easy and always had plenty of time to hit the squash courts, with an occasional Saturday afternoon spent fishing. Lew never ventured far from academics, though, and each weekend he could be found out in town getting extra instruction from the local teachers. With a great capacity for a good time or just plain relaxing, the question arose whether Lew spent more time asleep or awake in class. Naturally good natured and easy-going, he made many lasting friends here at the Academy. With his sights set high, Lew plans a career in the Nuclear Fleet of tomorrow. He will surely make the grade in all he attempts, and the Navy will gain a fine gentleman upon Lew's graduation.
