I still have a lot of research to do with this group. He was a US Naval Academy Graduate in 1931. I still need a copy of his Air Medal and Navy Commendation Medal citations and I do not know when he earned the Purple Heart. All three were most certainly awarded to him for his service on the USS Houston. He flew an SOC Seagull floatplane during his time on the Houston.
