Created to track pages with questions as to accuracy of spelling or category (operational loss/KIA, etc)
Is 1959 order correct? Has LTjg as last entry. DIdn't do class navigation there yet.
JOHN N. WILT, 2LT, USMC - Travis Manion Foundation says he was promoted to 1LT posthumously.
KYLAN A. JONES-HUFFMAN, LT, USN - most sites refer to him as reservist
MATTHEW W. BANCROFT, CAPT, USMC - killed when a/c crashed in Pakistan supporting OEF. Not KIA, right? Marked as OEF, too… need to be consistent with operational losses in direct support of wars.
ANTHONY R. DOMINO, LT, USN - listed in SHIPMATE obit as USNR
WILLIAM R. WATKINS, III, MAJ, USAF - listed on http://1989.usnaclasses.net/about/fallen-shipmates/ as LtCol
BRETT M. BEKKEN, LTCOL, USMCR - listed in news reports as Major. Also listed first on his class memorial stone… which doesn't make sense! (Normally chronologic)
PAUL A. AMBROCI, LT, USN - All news and obituary sites spell his last name with a G. Suspect transcription error when compiling list; need to verify memorial plaque is correct.
MARK A. PRUSINKSI, LT, USN - believe last name is a typo; should be PRUSINSKI. Verify memorial plaque is correct.
CHRISTOPHER B. WILHELMY, LT, USN - Lucky Bag has WILHEMY; likely a typo in title. Need to verify Memorial Hall has it spelled correctly.
EUGENE T. MCCARTHY, JR., MAJ, USMC - Believe this should be USMCR. Also I listed him as KIA… is that correct?
THOMAS J. EVANS, CAPT, USMC - http://articles.latimes.com/2002/dec/17/nation/na-wall17/2 lists him as a 1LT
ANTHONY W. STANCIL, 1LT, USMC - headstone has CAPT, as does other source. Other source also has USMCR.
RICHARD C. RUTKIEWICZ, LCDR, USN - Verify Memorial Hall spelling is the correct RUTKIEWICZ and not RUTHIEWICZ
John Ludwig, III '68 - magazine of Naval Helicopter Association says he left the Navy and was the Hughes chief test pilot when he was killed. A book also refers to him as a "Hughes crew member" and the "chief experimental test pilot."
John Rowney '67 - he wasn't a pilot, and crashed in plane "owned by the Navy Flying Club at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey."
