Loss

From the August 1960 issue of SHIPMATE:

It is my sad duty to announce the death of Lt. (jg) MASSEY L. "MAT" PIERCE in an aircraft accident near San Diego, Calif. Mat was attached to Utility Squadron Seven at NAAS Brown Field, Chula Vista, Calif. All of those who knew Mat will agree that we have lost a classmate who was an outstanding officer and a fine person. He is survived by his mother, his widow Sallie, and a son.

He is buried in Arlington National Cemetery.
