McCorkle, Robert D.
Hello John,
I just saw your Find a Grave entry for Major McCorkle. I was wondering if you were aware that he was killed in the crash of a Douglas C-124A Globemaster in Japan? See the following website:

I just wanted to let you know how I came up with the edit I just posted, for birth year for this man, who was killed 2 years after graduating from the US Naval Academy. The annual register of the USNA says that he was admitted on 15 July 1935 ( he was originally in the class of '39) and that his age at the time was 18 years and 10 months.

Thanks!
