Ebbitt, George F Jr: 1954 USNA

George graduated from the USNA with the Class of 1954 and was one of 64 who were commissioned in the Marine Corps. He went on to fly the H34, HH53 and the HMK-463 helicopters. In 1960 he became a presidential helicopter pilot and flew for both President Eisenhower and Kennedy. In 1964 he was a pilot on the Operation Shu-Fly, flying out of Danang, South Vietnam. He retired in May 1974 as a Lieutenant Colonel and sought employment as a commercial pilot. On October 8, 1974, he was shot and killed by a disgruntled, out-of-work plumber while sitting at a local bar reading the Naval Institute Proceedings and regaling the locals of flight operations in VN. George was buried in the Long Island National Cemetery, not far from where he grew up in Brooklyn.
