USNA Class of '63

Electronic Lucky Bag: Sixth Battalion

James Joseph Hogan, III

Manchester, New Hampshire

J. J., an active member in the overload program, could be seen almost anytime coming back from extra instruction -- his one and only overload. Many of his Dago profs called him Jose because of his excellence in Spanish, but his extensive overloads kept him from getting his interpreter's degree. He attended Manchester West High where he played football, basketball, and baseball, and was on the gym team. After one year at Columbian prep and a year in the Naval Reserve, J. J. came to the Academy. He enjoys hunting and water skiing and wants to spend some time in Europe before he settles down.

Stephen Gay Hoy

Santa Monica, California

Hailing from the sunny beaches of Santa Monica, California, and a number one ranked Junior Rose Bowl Football team, Steve came to Navy bringing his football ability and easy-going manner. A regular since youngster year, Steve has shown his versatility by successfully transitioning from guard to center. Studies weren't exceptionally hard for Steve, and plebe year he must have set some sort of record with only three "come arounds". Known affectionately as "The Cow" he is still undecided as to what branch of service he will enter upon graduation. Steve often found himself longing for the sun and sand of Santa Monica and puzzled over the snow and rain of his four year stay at Annapolis. Aside from his popularity and gridiron ability, Steve is also an enthusiastic fisherman, a fine swimmer, and as many on Youngster Cruise will attest, a pretty good poker player.
