Gordon had risen in rank of Sergeant when he and others in his unit were killed while serving overseas on April 2, 1945. After failed attempts to locate his family, the military made an 'administrative decision' to him in buried at Zachary Taylor National Cemetery in Louisville, KY when his body was returned to the States.
Gordon's father William was one-half Osage & Quapaw, therefore, Gordon and his siblings were a fourth. He is listed as such on the Osage Tribal records.
