Memorial Hall Error
William's headstone has his rank as LCDR; Memorial Hall has CDR. Unable to find evidence of a posthumous promotion. He is listed in the Register of Commissioned and Warrant Officers of the United States Navy and Marine Corps of 1927 — and the 1928 edition, which also has his death date — as a LCDR.
