Remembrances

From Find A Grave:

TBird & I were instructors together in VT-10. He was kind, and a great instructor. He really enjoyed flying & was looking forward to his orders to the fleet. The sky was colder & grayer after he was gone. Bob, July 27, 2015

Memorial Hall Error

His gravestone has his rank as LT; Memorial Hall has LTJG. Posthumous promotion?
