Graduated with the class of 1953 from the U. S Naval Academy and designated Naval Aviator upon completion of flight training. Killed in aircraft accident near Torino (Turin) Italy, presumably in course of a practice low level attack sortie from a Mediterranean deployed aircraft carrier.

From his Lucky Bag bio written by his roommate:
Kloepp took life easily into his stride. After three years in the fleet he found his way into NAPS. At home on any sports field Herb liked soccer best. Although a good athlete, Herb never forgot his other interests, good music, weekends, and leaves in LIC.His methodical ways were apparent to anyone who looked in his textbooks and saw the pages of underlined material. Not a lover of Regs, Herb seemed to get by when others were spending peaceful afternoons mustering. Herbie, handsome, a true blue New Yorker, seemed always on the go and never out of energy.
