Lucky Bag

From the 1925 Lucky Bag:

Loss

Millard was lost on June 5, 1944 when the training aircraft he was aboard crashed near Marksville, Louisiana following a mid-air collision. Four other men were also lost.

He is buried in California; he was survived by his wife, Katheryn.

Millard resigned as a midshipman on September 24, 1925. Note this was after his graduation; suspect he was one of the many graduates of this era who were not offered a commission. The Register of Commissioned and Warrant Officers of the United States Navy and Marine Corps of 1926 lists dozens of them.

SHIPMATE

From the August 1944 issue of SHIPMATE:

MILLARD FILMORE ROSENBERG, '25, Lt. AAC Killed in a plane crash 5 June 1944, over the swamps of Florida [sic], during a routine flight. Another Army plane crashed into his plane, tearing the top completely off.

Note: His middle name doesn't appear in Lucky Bag or academic register.

Memorial Hall Error

Millard is not listed with his classmates. He was identified through the diligent efforts of Leslie Poche, a volunteer who combed through SHIPMATE issues to find operational losses not accounted for in Memorial Hall.
