 Pete Soverel tells us about a ceremony which afforded permanent recognition of our late classmate Steve Toth.
     I attended the 45th reunion of my high school class (St. George's School, Newport, RI) this May. Steve graduated from St. George's in 1958 and attended VMI for one year before joining our class at the Naval Academy. The school has a memorial area in the chapel dedicated to St. George alumni who have been killed in action since World War I. On Sunday, May 16, the school dedicated a plaque commemorating Lt. Steven Spencer Toth, USN, who was killed in action during the Israeli attack on USS LIBERTY. His sister, Josie Toth Linen, attended the ceremony. I read Steve's Silver Star citation at the memorial service. It was a very well done and moving ceremony.

        Here is a photo of the memorial plaque in the school chapel.
