Memorial Day - USNA Class of 72: 13 died on active duty

I had occasion to reflect on my class from the US Naval Academy Class of 72. 1,371 young men took the oath four years earlier. Of those 905 graduated in 1972 becoming Ensigns and 2nd Lieutenants. The key item for Memorial Day is that 13 of those that graduated died on active duty. I knew most of them. The world of Naval Aviation is a dangerous place and most of them passed in that world. Well done good and faithful servant, Godspeed and comfort your families.
