what does " lay in his own youth"mean? At the White House Commander Hallett sent a man out to reel down the mansion's ensign immediately after he had ordered the Cabinet plane back to Andrews Field, and since the Commander had access to the Kellerman-Behn line, the standard at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue may have been the first to slide down its pole. The motive for Hallett's swiftness lay in his own youth. He had marched in Franklin Roosevelt's funeral cortege as an Annapolis midshipman, and he remembered that there had been criticism then because several hours had lapsed between the announcement of Roosevelt's death in Warm Springs and the descent of the White House flag.

The motive lay somewhere. This how you describe where someone's motive lies. His motive lies in the money. His motive lies in wanting to help others.
