World War II veteran Loren Jutkins observes each Veterans Day with a few moments of contemplation. "I lost my cousin and my best friend in the war," said the 89-year-old West Hollywood man — who spent five years in the Navy and took part in amphibious assault missions on Iwo Jima and Okinawa. He also took part in the liberation of the Philippines. But this will be the most memorable Veterans Day ever for Jutkins. That's because on Thursday he was belatedly awarded the wartime service medals he was denied 65 years ago. A crowd of Jutkins' friends filled Rep. Henry Waxman's West 3rd Street office to watch the congressman present the Liberation of the Philippines medal and the Bronze Star with Oak Leaf Cluster medal for the Iwo Jima and Okinawa landings.

The first three things they teach plebes at the Naval Academy, according to Rear Adm. R.F. Marryott are, "Yes, Sir," "No, Sir" and "Beat Army." "I remember the year," said Marryott, the superintendent of the academy, recalling days when campus discipline was not his responsibility, "that we (Navy) rented a small airplane and rained Ping Pong balls with 'Beat Army' on them on the Army pre-game parade. Of course, I would not condone anything like that in my present capacity.

Even Gen. H. Norman Schwarzkopf would be amused. Long Beach Surplus in Westminster is the kind of quirky surplus store military personnel and civilians alike enjoy rummaging through. Military service notwithstanding, one has to love a store that carries both 40-millimeter shell casings, dummy hand grenades, ammunition boxes for mortars and insignias emblazoned with peace symbols.

Three weeks earlier, Jason Snider woke up screaming with pain somewhere inside him. Doctors told him internal injuries to his liver, spleen and pancreas were so frightening that he risked permanent damage by playing again. Which is not what the big guy wanted to hear. A football lifer, a Navy senior, a Navy captain, he had one more Army-Navy game on his dance card. So the week before the game, he told doctors, "I'm feeling better, let's do another test." The test confirmed his diagnosis.

When the highway shootouts and roadblocks by gunmen in her hometown finally became too much, Karla Garza found sanctuary in the unlikeliest of places: the big, bad capital, Mexico City. Garza, a 21-year-old marketing student, switched campuses in December after her parents decided that even with its rampant robberies and kidnappings, Mexico City was safer than their home in Monterrey, a once-quiet northern city that for months has served as a battlefield for warring drug gangs.

UCLA's bowl future is now in the hands of Navy. The Bruins will get to play Temple in the EagleBank Bowl in Washington's RFK Stadium on Dec. 29, but only if Army (5-6) loses to Navy (8-4) on Saturday. Army automatically fills the EagleBank Bowl slot with a victory. "We're for all the men and women in the armed forces, but for three hours Saturday it's going to be 'Anchors Aweigh,' " UCLA Coach Rick Neuheisel said. UCLA officials received interest from other bowls, as Neuheisel said, "I know there were lots of conversations and I was also told that UCLA was a desired team."

Crean was a roughhewn candidate for Congress who was so unpalatable that after winning the Republican nomination in 1982, GOP activists successfully backed a write-in candidate. Today, Crean is under fire again, this time from parents and faculty revolting against his 10-year chairmanship of the Army and Navy Academy in Carlsbad, California's only private military boarding school.

The U.S. Naval Academy has always held a special attraction for Doug Griffin: He has been fascinated since childhood by military history books and grainy newsreel footage of World War II naval battles. And three of his relatives received their officer training here. Yet, when 16-year-old Griffin recently toured the academy's immaculate grounds and learned more about what life would be like as a midshipman, a wave of misgivings hit him like a tumble in a cold sea.

It is unfortunate timing for me and the city of Pasadena that Rolfe Arnhym, executive vice president of the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce, intends to leave Pasadena to take a similar position with the Long Beach Chamber of Commerce (Times, May 5). Arnhym was the chief architect for the 1983 Army-Navy game held in Pasadena's Rose Bowl. Local promoters and I were just about to unveil a proposal to rid the Army-Navy Game Foundation of its massive $2.5-million debt, including $174,000 owed the city of Pasadena for renting the Rose Bowl.

The Army-Navy game is usually a thrilling and raucous affair both in the stands and on the field. On Saturday, a loose railing in 27-year-old Veterans Stadium gave way, with nine fans injured after falling about 15 feet on to the field in an accident that marred the game won by Army, 34-30. "We asked them to come out and give us all they had," Army quarterback Joe Gerena said. "We wanted them to make it loud down there. Unfortunately, somebody got hurt."
