attended the University of Maine, and enlisted in the Naval Reserve on 06 October 1937. He served on active duty from the 15th of October to 13 November 1937, and was discharged on 21 December 1937.
On 10 December 1937, he was appointed Aviation Cadet, U.S. Naval Reserve, to date from 03 December 1937. He accepted the appointment and executed his oath on 21 December. After qualifying for
flight school at NAS Squantum, Mass., he was assigned to active duty for training involving flying at the Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Florida.|
He was appointed Ensign for Aviation duties, U.S. Volunteer Reserve on 01 January 1939, detached on 07 January, and assigned to Scouting Squadron Two in USS Saratoga (CV 3) for temporary active duty involving flying, reporting on 23 February 1939. Commissioned Ensign, U.S. Navy on 01 June 1939, he was assigned to Scouting Squadron Seventy-one aboard USS Wasp (CV 7) for active duty involving flying. On 11 September 1939, he transferred to Scouting Squadron Six aboard USS Enterprise (CV 6). Lt(jg) Fogg was killed in action in the initial attack on Kwajalein, on 01 February 1942. While flying Dauntless dive-bomber, S-11, Fogg and his radioman/ gunner RM3/c Otis L. Dennis, were hit by ground fire shortly after dropping their bomb on Roi. They were seen to crash. Fogg was awarded the Air Medal posthumously, for his gallant conduct in the face of heavy enemy opposition.
CITATION: "For meritorious conduct in aerial flight while in action with the enemy. As a member of a Scouting Squadron he participated in the initial attack on Kwajelein Atoll, Marshall Islands on February 1, 1942, which was executed in the face of enemy fighter opposition and heavy anti-aircraft fire. He pressed home his attack in a determined manner and contributed to the damage to enemy installation on Roi Island. He gallantly gave up his life in the service of his country. His conduct throughout was in accordance with the best traditions of the Naval Service."
USS Fogg (DE 57) (1943-1947) was the first ship to be named in his honor.

|567k||12 May 1945: off Boston, Mass. - A port quarter view of Fogg taken near the Boston Navy Yard. She has many interesting late war modifications.
Lots of 40-mm plus a gun director on a tower. This was a very unusual refit. The ship was badly damaged by a torpedo and arrived at the Boston Yard on 9 March. The hull from Frame 115
aft was replaced. The 3-in. battery was replaced by 5-in. guns, one of those very few ships to get this alteration.
