From the 1953 Lucky Bag:
ROBERT ALBERT GONANO, JR.
Bluefield, West Virginia
Coming to Navy as an honor graduate from Greenbriar Military Academy, Bob spent plebe year in constant fear that the first class would discover his past record as a Wheel. "Guano" comes from nature's air-conditioned city, Bluefield, West Virginia; his occasional telephone calls from there never failed to produce an anecdote about his little brother Eddie. Most of his academic time was spent complaining about "the system." His main enjoyments up until second class year were the happy days spent in the instruction pool . . . Up! . . . Out! . . . and together! The intense energy Bob put into any undertaking was unbelievable but he proved himself a true and faithful friend to all.
