Loss

The Capital from Annapolis, Maryland on January 27, 1968 carried an article "Youtz Room Dedicated to Memory of Midshipman Drowning Victim". The OCR is not good for much of the article, but it appears the 29th Company wardroom was dedicated to Tom's memory. The following two sentences are very clear: "Midshipman Youtz died on July 17, 1966, when he drowned in an irrigation ditch in Mexico while on summer leave. He was a 1964 graduate of Glendora High School, where he was a member of the student council, varsity football and basketball teams."
