RICHARD C. HORMEL, LTJG, USN
From the 1971 Lucky Bag:
When Rick came to Navy from Miami, Fla., via NAPS he brought with him many attributes foremost of which was his class. No matter what ehe engages in of a competitive spirit, save the game of chance he played and won with academics, Rick displays the gutsy class which led the 150 lb football team to a combined two-season record of 11-1 and which led him to the All-League team both seasons. No one can deny that Rick has led a colorful life at USNA since he has participated in such varied campaigns as the Battle of Trieste and a strange case of mistaken identity in D.C. one night. At any rate, in Rick the Naval Service receives a future flyer possessing a unique combination of cool class under pressure and great leadership ability.
