MAX ALFRED WERNER III

Aiken, South Carolina

Consistent is a perfect description of Max after one discovers his perseverance, trustworthiness and desire to excel. He was always there when needed whether to "stand a watch", lend a dollar, or just "please do the job". Max joined the Brigade directly from Aiken High School, Aiken, South Carolina. He played soccer plebe year; when time became less plentiful, youngster year, he offered his talents to the company intramural team, which with his help topped the Regiment. Max also lent his time to the "Log" staff all four years at Navy and in his last year headed the Local Adds Division, which finances the entire operation of the magazine. Max leans towards a career in CEC, but no matter where he goes or what he does he will succeed.
