Electronic Lucky Bag: Fifth Battalion

Drake Cleveland Hawkins

Altadena, California

Forsaking his surf board on the waves of the mighty Pacific, Drake came to Annapolis to learn more about the ways of the sea. Applying the same energy he had previously expended on sunning and surfing to the more mundane tasks of Academy life, he found his efforts crowned with success. Although he was striving toward an important goal, "Hawk" never lost his keen sense of humor and ability to enjoy life. An avid sports fan, he busied himself with battalion soccer and company football. His outside interests found vent in his contributions to the Aeronautics and Foreign Relations Clubs. His sharp intelligence and thoroughness assure the completion of the most difficult tasks, and will ensure his future success.
