Volume III (1980-2000)

This volume is currently in progress and the author sincerely hopes to have it ready for release at the November 11, 2017 reunion weekend. This may prove problematic, though. The 1980s appear to be well-documented but the 1990s are not and more help is needed from alumni to fill in those rather large gaps. This score of years is highlighted by the tri-service Buccaneer drill team, the end of the NESEP program and the beginning of the ECP, NECP and STA-21 programs, the new Drum & Bugle Corps, six more relocations for the Crow’s Nest and its demise, the creation of an alumni association and the first annual recurring alumni reunion, the rebirth of the Midshipmans Foundation, required sailing training, retirement of Black Mac, arrival of the huge ship’s anchor as a static display outside the ROTC building and UT’s NROTC connection with Huston-Tillotson University.
