From the 1967 Lucky Bag:


Loss

Max died in a motorcycle accident in Austin, Texas, while attending law school. He had resigned his commission in 1971.

Memorial Hall Error

His loss does not meet the criteria for inclusion in Memorial Hall. The Class of 1967 50th Anniversary book also notes he was honorably discharged in June, 1971, two years prior to his death.

Suspect the confusion came via the May 1974 issue of Shipmate, which gives his rank as LT, USN, but notes in the middle of the obituary that he had left the Navy.


Class of 1967

Max is one of 34 members of the Class of 1967 on Virtual Memorial Hall.
