From the 1951 Lucky Bag:

William M. Austin, Jr.

Charlottesville, Virginia

Born in the doubtful community of Visalia, California, Bill soon saw the error of his ways and settled down in Charlottesville, Virginia . . . he he then moved to Costa Rica . . . yearning for the USA in general and white women in particular, Bill ventured to Charlottesville at the age of 17 . . . after a rough period in the fleet (Boots and V-5), Bill came to Navy Tech and since has been delighting all with facts about 150 pound football and music ... a conscientious worker, Bill does his best in everything he tries, and he usually stands with the best . . . Bill plans a great future as a fly boy and we are sure he'll succeed.

He was also a member of the 5th Battalion staff.
