USNA Class of '63

Electronic Lucky Bag: Fourth Battalion

Peter Aidan Browne

Bronx, New York

Pete was born in North Carolina but moved to New York when he was four. After graduation from Cardinal Hayes High School, Pete entered the Academy, where he found time to participate in Lightweight Crew, Catholic Choir, and the Public Relations Committee. Among his many and varied interests, Pete enjoyed good music, the theatre, and travel. As a member of the nineteenth company "contest club," Pete won a few checks with which he intends to purchase status symbols when he graduates. During dull moments, Pete's subtle sense of humor added much to the well being of all. With the desire to become an admiral and with the ability to do it, Pete should have no trouble in future years.
