Muffy - This picture captures The Daily Prep's sense of humor perfectly - dry, irreverent, almost playful. Thank you!
If your Dad is pictured bottom right in coat and hat, then was he not a Yale grad? If he was a Yale grad, which class was he, perhaps my dad and yours were classmates?-Flo
A truly fantastic pcture.
This picture begs SO many questions yet I have a feeling you are going to answer NONE of them! :) Thank you anyway for such an intriguing and wonderful photograph. - CP
Love these photos! Definitely love their quote.
I've heard that phrase, at least most of it, referred to as the most anticlimactic phrase in American literature. Although I admit I may be biased as a Crimson grad...On a serious note, I am a huge fan of the blog. Keep up the great work, Muffy!
It is Yale Naval ROTC, right? That really looks like my uncle in the center back row! What year is this from? Thanks for posting this great shot. --EBT
Gives new meaning to the authenticity and stewardship prongs of your guiding principles.
Oh, hey, I wore that uniform once. Yay, midshipmen!...and midshipwomen, plenty of those when I was a mid. Not so much at the time of this photograph.o/~ Hey, hey, hey Army, get in yer tanks and follow me, we are the Naval R-O-T-C! o/~
That's the correct, original version of the motto. The truncated version often seen is just an effort to make it fit more conveniently on t-shirts and bumper stickers.--Road to Parnassus
Really cool photo. I assume that your father took it. As a Harvard grad, with two children who went to Brown and competed against Yale in three different sports....I think it is an excellent school and very beautiful. However....go Bruno!
p.s. can't find the Ray Ban aviators at the site. I love the rope-like design on the side of the frame. Any suggestions on where to look, Muffy? Thanks! :)
@Binker - Here is the Ray-Ban link to my Aviators: http://www.ray-ban.com/usa/sunglasses/rb8307/004-n8. Ever True!
Thanks, Muffy!! :)
What a delightful photograph. My felt banner of "For God, For Country, and For Yale" that I tacked up on the wall of my barn is now but a remnant of its former self, having been half-eaten by mice. I've never seen the one shown in the photo of your father and colleagues. Reggie
Muffy,I love your picture! Our son John, whom you met in Orvis in the city, just was made a lieutenant in the Marine Corps...following in the footsteps of his grandfather Judge John M. Murtagh who was a Harvard Man...
I'll take my Air Force "wings" over the Navy's "anchor" any day. My grandfather, who was in the RAF, fought for the Americans in WWII, gained his citizenship and property in Kentucky (curiouser and curiouser). And no one in my family has served anywhere but the skies since then, as grandpa claimed "It was the closest to England" he felt. For God, For Country...For Heritage.
This is exceptional & so very appropriate considering I just helped edit a video for my school's newspaper about the on Campus NROTC attachment here at Penn. Clark sent me the link to the last post & I am just now getting around to take a look after a rather long hiatus!Muffy, you have been sorely missed!twitter.com/_WCLR
@Margaret - Thank you so much for your comment and please send our congratulations to John! We were most impressed with him and you must be so proud.
Christy, Navy Wings of Gold still beat out AF "wings". Just teasing, married to a Naval aviator but come from multiple of Army Air Corp/AF senior officers so it is all in good fun. And by the bye, roar Lions roar!
