From the 1952 Lucky Bag:

Frederick Edward Grammer, Jr.

Bremerton, Washington

Bremerton, Washington, relinquished Fred to the Navy in 1948 after he spent a year at Washington State College. With a year of WSC rifle team experience under his belt, the Navy expert pistol and rifle medals were easy prey for him. Youngster year found Fred as one of the mainstays on the Academy sailing team for which he won his Navy "N" and a membership to the "N" Club. As a member of the Reception Committee his last three years, Fred furthered the relations between visiting teams and Navy. Far from being a Red Mike, Fred played the field with the fairer sex. His easygoing manner will carry Fred a long way in his Navy career.
