Lucky Bag

1949 Moffett LB.jpg

From the 1949 Lucky Bag:

George L. Moffett, Jr.


Moff arrived at Navy Tech after two years as a cadet in the Naval Air Corps, having spent three semesters learning some mechanical engineering at Penn State in the Navy's college program. Arriving too late to take part in Plebe Summer activities, he made up for lost time by making his numerals on the plebe gym team. Youngster Year saw Moff begin his varsity sojourn by winning his letter on the parallel bars. Wherever there were two pipes or pieces of wood resembling his beloved bars, he could be found demonstrating his art. Due to his stay in the air corps, Moff definitely had his sights set on being a full fledged fly-boy. Wedding bells were not expected to ring immediately, but Moff was still keeping a good eye open for the girl.

George was a member of the gym team.

Mrs. George L. Moffett, Jr., the former Ruth Wuensche, is pictured in her wedding dress of antique white satin which she wore with an illusion veil which fell from a starched lace pillbox. She and Ens. Moffett, who were married at Trinity Lutheran Church here on Feb. 4, are on a wedding trip to New Jersey, following which they will be at home at Norfolk, Va. The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John A. Wuensche, 815 Louisiana.
