JAMES T. STEPHENSON, JR.
Speed, Scoop, Steve
An old song says, "She'll be comin' 'round the mountain when she comes, but Steve walked right through the mountain instead of around it. To the Naval Academy he brought determination, athletic ability, and the ability to turn his academic proficiency into practical channels. His sense of humor and tolerance will take him far in the Navy and in the Air Service, his ultimate ambition.
