Aviation Cadet S. P. Hawkins, USNR, was designated Naval Aviator #5107 in 1937. Entered active service via the pre-war AVCAD program.

AVCAD Hawkins lost his life as the "second-seat" observer in a seaplane operating from the cruiser USS CHICAGO off the southern Calif. coast, when a sudden dive catapaulted him out of his craft. This resulted in him hitting the tail of the craft, resulting in injuries and then losing consciousness. Never regaining consciousness, he was observed to parachute into the ocean and after a few minutes, sank.
