Lucky Bag

From the 1958 Lucky Bag:


Don was lost when his F8U Crusader crashed on June 14, 1963 while operating from USS Hancock (CV 19).

He has a memory marker in Arlington National Cemetery.

From the September-October issue of Shipmate:

It is my sad duty to announce that DON MEYER was killed in June when his F8U photo Crusader crashed near Hawaii. As one who knew Don at the Academy and came to know him and his wife, Carol, even better during flight training, I think I can speak for the class when I say that we have lost a fine officer and classmate who will be missed by us all.
