JAMES JOSEPH HOGAN, III
Manchester, New Hampshire
J. J., an active member in the overload program, could be seen almost anytime coming back from extra instruction -- his one and only overload. Many of his Dago profs called him Jose because of his excellence in Spanish, but his extensive overloads kept him from getting his interpreter's degree. He attended Manchester West High where he played football, basketball, and baseball, and was on the gym team. After one year at Columbian prep and a year in the Naval Reserve, J. J. came to the Academy. He enjoys hunting and water skiing and wants to spend some time in Europe before he settles down.
