John Morton Fultz, III

Wynnewood, Pennsylvania

John hailed from Philadelphia, where he graduated from Lower Merion High School before heeding Navy's stern call. A very active guy in Brigade activities, John was on the staff of the Log and Splinter and a very active member of the Antiphonal Choir. In the athletic picture, John won his 'N' rowing on the lightweight crew squad where he helped pull Navy to many victories. At a party, he was always an instigator and many will remember the winging parties in Philly for which John was responsible. Best remembered about John will be his great sense of humor and will to win; with these outstanding qualities, Navy air will definitely be receiving a great asset.
