    Still, it's far better than Richard Simmons wearing that USMA tank top in Sweatin' To The Oldies! :biggrin:

    I don't know, I think they are kinda cute. Back in the early '60s there was a Broadway musical hit about USNA. We were in fashion then also. I have a Vargas drawing somewhere of one of his typically well endowed girls in FDBs. Nostalgia question of the day for all the guys: Who/what was a Vargas girl?

    Okay, so the memory is getting a little fuzzy. So what if it was the Ice Capades instead of a Broadway hit. So what if I, at my age, I forgot just how abbreviated the FDBs really were. So what if it was Petty instead of Vargas. I DO have that picture around here somewhere if I can just find it. And it is autographed by somebody.

    This did make the sailor suits popular among the women at the time. I don't remember any of the skirts being that short though.

    However, I will deny forever that this was THE recruiting poster that cemented my decision to go to USNA.
