USNA Class of '63

Electronic Lucky Bag: Sixth Battalion

Anthony James Oakes, Jr.

San Mateo, California

Jim comes from San Mateo, California, located on the San Francisco Peninsula. He attended Serra High School and the College of San Mateo before coming to Annapolis. As an all-Northern California quarterback, Jim brought to USNA fantastically high ratings and helped spark the Plebes to a very successful season. During youngster year, Jim played on the varsity, but an injury during spring practice hampered him. Consequently, he decided to turn his aggressiveness to battling the books. Being an avid Californian, Jim spent most of his summer leaves at Lake Tahoe or hopping to Hawaii. His "black book" was noted throughout the Brigade, and he always seemed to have the prettiest girl everywhere he went. Jim, a Bull major, never had much trouble with the E. H. and G. Department, and next to the Navy, his chief interest lies in politics. With his fine attitude and never-ending zeal, Jim should make a fine line officer.
