Lucky Bag

1944 Sugg LB.jpg

From the 1944 Lucky Bag:

Louis Herbert Sugg

Missoula, Montana

"Lou" hails from the wilds of Montana, but after two years in the fleet, he entered the Academy with more salt in his blood than most of us have after three years of studying the lore of King Neptune. A natural sailor, he was "willing and able" when yawl and ketch sailing was proposed. Of course, there were academics, but they never bothered "Lou." He was always pushing the "star men" to their limit. Associate Engraver of the Lucky Bag and an all-around organizer, "Lou" has put his monogram high in the esteem of his classmates. When he goes to the fleet, one will see him at his best.

The Class of 1944 was graduated in June 1943 due to World War II. The entirety of 2nd class (junior) year was removed from the curriculum.

Life & Loss

Unable to find any specific information about Louis's life or loss. He is listed on the In Memoriam page of the USS Coral Sea (CV 43) 1953 Mediterranean cruise book.
