BERNARD B. BARILA, JR., LT, USN
Bernard Barila, Jr. '44
Date of birth: November 8, 1920
Date of death: May 12, 1953
From the 1944 Lucky Bag:
Bernard was lost when his F4U-4 Corsair crashed at sea while operating from USS Princeton (CV 37) on May 12, 1953.
The F4U Corsair site cited above contains an obvious error in the date of his crash. Possible that other information is incorrect, too.
Elmer Crain, Jr ’44 was also on the rifle and pistol team.
