After graduating first in his class at
the Naval Academy, USS Robert
A. Owens was the first duty station
for a newly minted Ensign.
We are proud to have the Admiral
as a member.

Any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life
worthwhile can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction,
"I SERVED IN THE UNITED STATES NAVY"
