Class of 1976 - 17th Company - Lucky Bag Pictures
Like Wesley Brown who had President Jimmy Carter to support and defend him from 1945-1949, I also had the best group of peers to help and support me from 1972-1976. Good or bad they were there to help me and because of their personal accomplishments I was able to be in a position to achieve my goals, dreams, and vision at Annapolis. During the four years at Annapolis we finished 1st as Plebes, 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 1st again during the four years at Annapolis.
To my knowledge no other Company in the history of Annapolis has done better. I might be wrong about this last fact but I am very proud to have been a member of the 17th Company Band of Brothers. As of the writing of this no member of the 17th Company has died. I thought it was appropriate at this time to write these comments because although we are young at heart we are all over 63 years old.
