Blessed with five sons, Timothy (17+), Benjamin (16), Seth (14+), Nathaniel (13) and Stephen (10+). Retired from Navy and tried to get into teaching high school science via the “TRANSITION to TEACHING” federal grant program – was told by Western Washington State University that they do not recognize the Naval Academy or NPS. Which forced me to consider selling Real Estate – am now an Associate Broker for Windermere Real Estate/Whidbey Island and after 5 years, still loving it! So, we settled back where I started in Coupeville, Washington, on beautiful Whidbey Island. Oldest son Tim just made Eagle Scout and we are very proud of him and his brothers. I am the Scoutmaster for the Coupeville Troop. Backpacked 92 miles last summer. Would love to see your families and get caught up, and will try to be out with Bev to the 25th reunion. You have a place to stay or at least a hot cup of coffee, anytime! Beat Army! — Clay & Bev

Trice, R D – – 9/28/05: I was a member of 23rd company through the end of plebe year. I left and got a degree, and got a commission in the Supply Corps in July 1981, and after 20 years of active duty, retired as a Commander. I’m now a Life member of the alumni association. Certainly and interesting twist to be the first one from the class commissioned and retired. I’m now with the civil service.

Wood, Robert Anthony —
We have something in common
In updating my address book
You in this mailing
Survived my first look.
I said I would never do it
But I finally did
I picked me up broadband
For a few extra quid
In order to do it,
I gave prodigy the heave ho
That bothers me not
As it was certainly slow.
Now I can handle
Those extra large mails
Keep the jokes coming
So the fun never fails
Tony and Kathi Wood
