Gilbert enlisted in the US Army during World War II on 16 Aug 1943. He was honorably discharged on 20 Mar 1946. He served with the 319th Troop Carrier Squadron. His headstone was applied for by Gustavo Martinez (Headstone Application).

The 319th was assigned to flying supplies and personnel all over the CBI (China-Burma-India) Theater of Operations. Activated on 1 September 1944 as the 319th Troop Carrier Squadron (Commando), it was assigned to the 1st Air Commando Group of the 10th Air Force. Initially stationed at Asansol in India, the squadron operated from several forward bases in Burma between December 1944 and May 1945 when it relocated to Warazup, Burma, and finally to Loping, China. At the end of the war, the squadron was moved again to Huhsien, China, then through India, ending stateside in December 1945. The squadron flew the C-47 'Gooney Bird' throughout the war in Aerial Transportation. Its campaigns included India-Burma, China Defensive, Central Burma, and the China Offensive.
