USNA Class of '63

Electronic Lucky Bag: Fourth Battalion

Paul Schleifer

New York City, New York

Paul arrived at USNA directly from high school in New York, filled with the sights and sounds of a big city and eager to explore a military career. Never finding academics much of a problem, he soon pushed his average over the coveted 3.4 where it remained throughout his stay at the Naval Academy. Much of his free time was taken by the Academy's Sailing Squadron; time spent on the yawls will form lasting memories. Paul, a math major at USNA, hopes for post graduate school and a career in nuclear submarines after graduation. His self-reliant nature, good humor and determination will stand him in good stead as an officer of the Navy.
