From the 1940 Lucky Bag:


Plymouth, Massachusetts

The same self-tanged sea breezes that filled the sails of the good ship, Mayflower, also set in motion a wind of fate that would eventually send to the Naval Academy one whose forefathers made history by placing their feet on a Rock. It is only natural that Warren, whose entire life has been the sea, should choose to follow a naval career, and it is certain that he shall, after graduation to the fleet, be a true seaman on the bridge and a comrade in the wardroom. The many close friends he has made during his preparation within this institution ask no more than that they may be shipmates with Warren.


Warren was lost in an aircraft accident near Jacksonville, Florida, on December 18, 1943.
