I had posted Pics of this group in on the " other forum" a few years ago before the USMF started, but I thought it should be here as well.
RM3/c Dennis was a Radioman on a SBD Dauntless dive bomber who served with VS-6 ( Scouting Squadron Six ) on the USS Enterprise and was killed during the very 1st carrier raid of the war against the Japanese. The raid took place at the Marshall Islands on February 1, 1942 . He was also in the air during the Pearl Harbor attack , and his plane was hit by friendly fire causing his plane to make an emergency landing at Ewa .
In December 1943, a Destroyer Escort ( DE-405 ) was launched in tribute to him.
