Life & Loss

Unable to find any information about Marvin's life or loss.

He was involved in an accident from the period, but no details are available. Possible that he was the pilot of a F4U-4 Corsair that crashed in the Caribbean Sea; however, the date (1946) is incorrect. (This website has had incorrect dates—but other correct information—before.)

Marvin is buried in Arlington National Cemetery.

LEE, Marvin G., LCDR USN: For meritorious achievement as air intelligence officer on the staff of Commander Carrier Division Three, embarked in USS Valley Forge, during operations against enemy forces in the Korean area from 1 Jul to 14 Aug 1950.
