Thomas McGregor graduated from West Point in 1919, and then dropped his given name in 1920 - McGregor was his mother's maiden name. His brother, George, did the same. Their parents divorced around 1911, and there were years of legal disputes regarding alimony. Likely, this might have been the root for some animosity that led to dropping his name.

Here's Thomas' 1920 military history:
