WILLIAM N. BEALE, JR., LCDR, USN
William Beale, Jr. '42
Date of birth: May 18, 1920
Date of death: 1947
From the 1942 Lucky Bag:
William was lost when his F4U-4B Corsair crashed while operating from USS Midway (CV 41). The date given on the site is September 19, 1946; however his burial marker gives 1947 and the site above is often incorrect on dates.
