USNA Class of '63

Electronic Lucky Bag: Fifth Battalion

William David Rabin

Jackson, Mississippi

Arriving at U.S.N.A. from the "Deep South," Bill retained his southern drawl throughout the four years. When he wasn't at a committee meeting, he could be found with either a slide rule or a tennis racket in his hand. A permanent place on the Superintendent's List and a never dying love for "rock-and-roll" music characterized him throughout his days at Annapolis. Bill's irrepressible spirit made him a favorite with the ladies and no outing was complete without having "The Nose" along to make things move a little faster. Firmly convinced that New Orleans was Heaven, he lived for leave so that he could revisit Bourbon Street and hear the originals of his records. His scholarship and personality, along with praises from the Math Department will go with him to the Fleet, and insure him a wonderful career in the Navy.
