Classmates at Reunion
Dear Classmates, Widows, and Friends,
As previously reported, a new slate of class officers was elected at our 70th Reunion. A brief re-cap follows.
President: Tom Boyce.
Tom is a retired Navy Supply Corps Officer who sailed in five ships (one
in Vietnam waters during the war) and finished his Navy career as the
Comptroller of the Naval Air Systems Command. Prior to election as
president Tom served long and faithfully as class vice-president. He and his
wife, Barbara, live in Fort Belvoir, Virginia.
Vice President: Bob Small.
Bob retired from the Navy after a long and distinguished career as a
surface warfare officer including command of the nuclear powered cruiser,
Truxtun. After retirement, he taught at the Naval Academy and served as the
Class Museum Representative, overseeing the growth of the outstanding
Naval Academy Museum Gallery of Ships. He and his wife, Ruth, live in
Secretary: Chris Christener.
Chris was one of twenty-five percent of our class who took a com-
mission in the Air Force on graduation. He went through flight training, then
spent most of his career in the Air Force Systems Command working on
new and emerging air warfare technologies. After his active duty career, he
worked for a prestigious defense contractor and now lives in Alexandria,
Class Fundraiser: Guy Shaffer.
Guy is a distinguished submariner, now retired in Annapolis. He was
the first commanding officer of USS Greenling (SSN-614). More important,
to the Class of 1951 he has been our Fundraiser since early in our history.
At that he has been eminently successful, as evidenced by the data in the
“Now Hear This” page of this website. Guy lives in Annapolis.
