Below is the front cover of Once a Jock...Always a Jock, a compilation of all the stories that were published in the Aviation Midshipmen LOGs and the earlier Newsletters from 1988 to 2011. Click on the front cover below and the document in PDF form will be available to read, copy, and print.When the document opens scroll down a couple of pages to the Table of Contents. The last entry in the TOC reads Table of Stories and Authors. Clicking on the Table of Stories and Authors will open 25 more pages. You can scroll down through those 25 pages until you find a story or an author (yourself maybe) and click on it. Up comes the story. Titles are either those originally published in the LOG or in some cases different titles where we thought we were more clever than the former LOG editors.


The  editors of the LOG, Ort Rudd, and Bill Busse encouraged the publication of these stories. It was our feeling that they should not be buried in the musty archives of museums, but rather made available to everyone. We have also included the feature articles that were published from time to time, a poem by Gene Milway and most of the poems of Bob Brennan which we think are classic. The 300 stories were written by 156 authors representing 48 PreFlight classes.
