RICHARD H. BUZZELL, LTJG, USN
From the 1968 Lucky Bag:
RICHARD HOWARD BUZZELL
Buzz, the oldest man in the Brigade, or the "Dirty Old Man" as he is known to most of his friends hails from the city of Arlington, Massachusetts. Buzz is a lover of all sports, and although he was not able to play for Navy except for one season of JV lacrosse; it would be hard to find a more avid fan.
He spent 3 years in the Navy prior to entering USNA, and he has anxiously awaited graduation so that he can fly choppers and do his part in Vietnam.
Buzz adopted the policy of working hard through the week, and as a reward playing equally hard during the weekend. This policy has managed to bring up his below par first year academics and leave him with a little of the highly coveted gravy.
Buzz has a knack for organizing and arousing spirit, and most of all for making friends. I'm sure that when he reaches the fleet he will handle any position he is given with ease.
