Speed, Buck

Though chance sent Buck to the Navy (he prepped for the Point), he soon proved to be as salty as the best. His cheerful smile, his love for chow, and his ever-ready puns soon paved his way to popularity. Though not a star athlete, Buck couldn't give sports too much attention, being somewhat hampered by his frequent run-ins with the Language Department. Best of luck, Buck!
