We are working as quickly as possible to get all of the information in for each individual. Due to the website being hacked several times, we are uploading information from our 2001 database backup which is creating a very slow process. We expect to have everyone's full information in by the end of the August. Check here for progress updates. Thank you for your patience. For those of you interested in family history, we will be loading family data sheets and additional resources once the basic information is completed for each sailor.

William Jack Bush - Seattle, Washington - "Willie" "Bill" - "Willy came to us out of the wild and wooly West bringing with him some of that warm Pacific sunshine in his ever ready smile that brightened so many days here. He has always preferred Cosmo to Dutton and yet has survived the attacks of the Academics with little trouble. Sampling every branch of athletics before finding his true love on the small bore range, he won his "N" the first year out. To the despair of the fair sex he has devoted his talents to the O.A.O. since Youngster year, once almost to the extent of leaving us for married bliss. But he's with us yet and may his stay be long. Life will hold nothing but the best for you, pal, but hear's luck anyhow." Lucky Bag Yearbok - United States Naval Academy 1938
