ROBERT A. PIERCE, LT, USN
Robert Pierce '28
Date of birth: November 24, 1905
Date of death: September 20, 1937
From the 1928 Lucky Bag:
Unable to find any details of Robert's loss. The Register of Alumni gives only "LTjg, 9/20/1937, Canacao, PI". The 1937 Navy Directory has him listed "S/M base, Pearl Harbor, T H". (Believe "S/M base" is ship or submarine maintenance activity.)
Memorial Hall Error
Find A Grave records his headstone as "LTJG"; the Register of Alumni and newspaper article from 1958 also give this rank. Memorial Hall has LT.
