Life & Loss
Unable to find any details about William's life or loss.
He appears to be buried, without any mention of rank or service, in California… but the date of birth on the headstone (1897) is at odds with that in the Register of Commissioned and Warrant Officers of the United States Navy and Marine Corps of 1918 (1896).
In June 1923 he was detached from USS Pennsylvania to Naval Air Station Pensacola, Florida.
"W.S. Garrett" earned his wings as naval aviator #3116 on January 11, 1924.
