From the 1949 Lucky Bag:

George H. Lochner

Bayside, New York

George came to the Academy straight from a year as a Navy control tower operator on San Nicolas Island off the coast of California, via the Fleet exams. He had a fairly easy time academically, having completed two years at R.P.I., and put his spare time to good use in soccer, where he not only acted as team clown, but succeeded in booting his way to the varsity squad his Plebe Year. He also found company and batt sports, such as lacrosse, fieldball, and pushball, wonderful opportunities to beat in the heads of his opponents. What with his wise cracks, fiery arguments, and completely fouled-up love life, George managed to keep us all I laughing for four years, and will be a welcome addition to the Fleet, even with his slightly fiendish sense of humor.
