A graduate of St. George High School in the class of 1943 he enlisted in a paratroop unit of the Infantry in February 1944. In the rigid paratroop examination he stood 7th in a group of more than 700 men. He received his training at Fort Benning and had been overseas but two months when he lost his life in the service of his country.
