Mare Island, Calif., February 29, 1936 IN MEMORAIM ~ Saturday, February 22, the Navy and country as a whole lost a good friend and citizen with the death of the Assistant Secretary of the Na" J, Henry Latrobe RooRevelt. Colonel Roosevelt devoted his lifE to the service of his country. Hi~ i § career started in 1889 when at the a a; e of 17 he graduated from theI Na" al Academy and was commis- ~ sioned a second Lieutenant in the I ' Iarine Corps. From then until 1920 I he served with distinction as a ~ commiRsioned officer in the Corps I when he resi~ ned as a lieutenant I : olooel to take a position with a civilian company. In 1933 he was ~ ppointed Asst. Sec. of the Navy which position he held until his death. It is with deepest regret that we hear of the passing of a man who had the interest of the Navy and Country so close to his heart. In memory of this man all salu- ~ ting- ships and stations fired a 171 g- un salute on Monday and another!! i!! 17 gun salute on Tuesday, the day I of his internment in Arliington! Cemetery and all Officers of the; . ' IV)' and Marine Corps will wear I mournin~ badges until sunset of! thc seventh of March. ~ l: iUlm! llllllllllJlII'U!~ DIIIl! lrn~ nrlimIlllCllliIlllDDllmmIIllIUUmlllnnllllrH'IIIIIIIlIIIIIIIlllIIIftII_ OFFICER PERSONNEL W{ Icome back- 2nd.
