USNA Class of '63

Electronic Lucky Bag: Sixth Battalion

Stephen Meredith Buescher

Burlington, Iowa

Steve, known by his classmates as "Stev-0" brought with him an outstanding record from both high school and his one year at Wentworth Military Academy. As an athlete he contributed to the mighty power of Navy's swimming team, and as a student he stood high in the class of '63. Although he was never one to turn down a drag for some important event in the Yard, Steve managed to keep up a steady correspondence with a certain someone back in his native Iowa during his four years at USNA. Steve spends much of his free time studying the past and future history of our submarine fleet and upon graduation, hopes to continue his career on board one of the Navy's nuclear submarines.

John Patrick Burke

San Bernardino, California

Jack came to us upon graduation from high school. He never has had any trouble with the academics and was on the Superintendent's list consistently. He was always the person that everyone ran to when a difficult problem came up. Jack was never the indoor type and excelled in his favorite sports of squash and tennis. Although we would try to fool you into thinking he was the quiet type, he was really the life of the party. Weekends found Jack spending most of his time either dragging or finding some other entertainment. The fairer sex have never been a major problem to him as shown by the abundance of mail he always received. His easygoing personality and hard working manner will make him a valuable asset to the Naval Service.
