Personal Memories

Best Moment
1st: Pinning on the 'Butter Bar' 2nd: Working with the Plebes, teaching them--

Worst Moment
Experiencing the gas chamber results-most debilitating thing I've ever experienced.


Class 504-E : Lt. Weuchinsky- he drove a white '66 Corvette Stingray with tan interior- Awesome!

Other Memories
Realizing I can do anything I set my mind to..... Doing ANOTHER 100 pushups for telling/listening to "polock' jokes in formation AFTER Tech Officer gives ok to tell the joke.
