_______ Woosley
From Georgia Tech. He was dismissed early on for "unsuitability" to military life. Contrary to regulations he carried his books in his left arm clutched to his breast. He was always cold and had a lighter fluid fueled hand warmer in his glove that he was constantly holding to his face. Jack Stumpf rather cruelly tormented him at night by throwing the windows in their section of the barracks wide open. The rumor was that Woosley had brought a car north, it had been in a minor accident, and the authorities had found pornography in the trunk.
