From the 1942 Lucky Bag:
FRANCIS A. RILEY
Mickey doesn't advertise his accomplishments, but when he joined our class from '41 via the hospital route, it was definitely our gain. His disarming smile and gift of blarney meet with complete feminine approval, but like a true Irish lad he loves deeply but not long. With his personality, suave and debonaire and at the same time sincere, Mickey will be a swell shipmate unless the Medical Board gets him.
Track 4; 1 Stripe.
The Class of 1942 graduated on December 19, 1941, less than two weeks after the United States entered World War II. The class had previously been scheduled to graduate in February 1942.
His wife, Lillian Joan Riley, was listed as next of kin.
