He received his basic training in Louisiana in a Glider Unit; then he was sent to Fort Bragg with the Infantry.

He was the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Flint, Parris Island, SC. He is survived, besides his wife, by one sister, Mrs. George H. Barry, Chicago, IL; and three brothers, all of whom are in the Pacific.
