From the 1953 Lucky Bag:
JOHN LYDON FOY
And now the pride and joy of Southwick, Massachusetts, the one and only Jack Foy. Originally a Coast Guard candidate, Jack decided upon USNA while prepping at Stanton Academy, even though many of his buddies chose West Point. At Navy, battalion handball and cross country held his attention. He kept the Midshipman's Store in business as far as stationery went; almost any free period would find him busily scratching away epistles for home. His carefree manner and friendly attitude caught many friends; he was never one to harbor bad feelings or malice. Graduation, Jack hopes to enter naval aviation.
The aircraft was assigned to the Air Force Logistics Command, but appears that John and the other pilot were attending graduate school.
