Electronic Lucky Bag: Fifth Battalion

Joseph H. Waterfill, III

Louisville, Kentucky

After an active high school life, Joe brought his abundant energy, wit, and academic skill to the Academy. Though Joes biggest forte lay in academics, the stars he wore could not outshine his personality. Always active in company and battalion sports, his greatest love was water polo, where he left many an opponent gasping for breath or fighting in vain to block a goal. When not churning across the pool, he could usually be found listening to some jazz, rearranging the room, or both. Joes never ending quest for order, and genius for attaining it, kept his roommates in constant wonder as to how things would be arranged tomorrow. His ease with academics kept his brain in constant demand to decipher the textbook and translate it to a less gifted classmate. His warm personality, talent for perfection, and ability to get a job done, assure him of a most rewarding career.
