From the 1942 Lucky Bag:

GEORGE FRANCIS CUMMINGS

Shunt

Quiet, calm, never disturbed, this short but mighty little fellow has the ability to maintain his calm exterior under the most varied circumstances, never becomes overly enthusiastic nor unusually depressed. Well-travelled and well-read, he can hold an interesting conversation on most any topic, whether it be literature, music, geography, or just plain California. George will go far and we wish him all sorts of success.

2/c P.O.; 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.

Loss

Ralph was lost when USS Jarvis (DD 393) was sunk—with the loss of all hands—by Japanese aircraft on August 9, 1942 near Savo Island.
