USNA Class of '63

Electronic Lucky Bag: Fourth Battalion

Kenneth George Reinhardt, Jr.

DeWitt, New York

Ken came to USNA from Jamesville-DeWitt High School, where he was a member of the football, wrestling, and track teams. He continued his athletic endeavors at the Academy by participating in battalion football, company cross country, and softball, in addition to an occasional dip in the swimming pool. Academics demanded a great deal of his time, but "Moose" accepted the challenge and maintained a good average. During plebe year one of his enjoyable experiences was entertaining people with his banjo playing-before reveille. Between flying at Pensacola and a trip to Hawaii, Second Class Summer was one of the high points of "Moose's" four years by the Severn. With his subtle sense of humor and dynamic personality, he should go far in whatever he chooses for the future.
