The Army Hockey Team for the 1958-59 season.

Familiar to most is the tallest player in the back row, No. 3, Pete Dawkins, a Firstie or Senior in the USMA Class of '59. Farmington, Minnesota's gift to Army ice is just to the left of Dawkins:  No. 9, John Birkholz, a Cow or Junior with the USMA Class of '60. John is the first student athlete from Farmington, Minnesota to play hockey at the collegiate level.
