What a reunion, what a turnout, what a class! Our 40th reunion is in the books. We had great weather, a great football game and I'm sure most had a truly great time reconnecting with classmates, some that we hadn't seen in decades.

Class Officers

President: John Yaeger

Vice President: Skip Stocknick

Treasurer: Earle Babcock

Secretary: Roger McEvoy

The class has purchased a "RED Perimeter" parking pass that allows access not only to the parking lot for football games, but allows you to park right at the class perimeter tailgate spot.   There is one pass per game that is available to class members at a cost of $30 per game.  If you would like to utilize this pass, please email me at wstocknick (at)

Skip Stocknick
USNA 74 Vice President

Classmate and author Ken Dunn:- "I want to remind you that my book, "Camp Lejeune Command," is out and doing well. Although it covers the period 1992 - 1995 when I commanded an artillery battalion at Camp Lejeune, the setting is USNA and our great Class of 1974. I sent a note over to Roger McElvoy, our Class Secretary, to put the word out in Shipmate, but he may have a backlog and you won't learn about the book for a while. Folks who have read it tell me it is an 'excellent read.' I say it is high time we begin to document our times, the good and the challenging. "Camp Lejeune Command" will look good under your Christmas tree."



Heroes Lost and Now Found Vol II - Author Ron Wilson is offering complimentary copies of this book to any interested alumni. Heroes Lost and Now Found- focuses on graduates of the USNA who died during World War II.

Operation Support Our Troops (OSOT)
Dear Classmates,
In the past you have heard me talk about Operation Support Our Troops and many of you have helped out. We are now working on a big project. I have gotten and attached a brochure (or see the website) about the project to buy a van for a wounded Marine and Soldier. Our goal is to buy two vans this year and hopefully two a year in the future. The vans will be for wheel-chair bound warriors who need these full size conversion vans to accommodate a wheel chair and a wheel chair lift. The goal is to raise $100,000 a year. We are looking for individuals and corporations to step up and make donations. We are a 501(c)(3) organization for tax deduction purposes. If you can help us get the word out to your center of influence, it would be appreciated.
