Member of Headquarters Squadron, 3rd Bomber "Attack" Group Light, 5th Air Force, for 3 years and 6 months. He joined in the Spring of 1941 before the Pearl Harbor attack. Warren worked in the Motor Pool Section and was named by his fellow buddies as "Hut Sut". The name came from a popular song at the time that he was always humming.

During an afternoon off, he and his best friend took a boat made by the guys in the motor pool, and crossed Lake Sentani, near Jayapura (Hollandia), New Guinea to a friendly village. On the way back, a sudden storm came in and swamped the boat, tossing the two into the lake about a mile from shore. About a 100 yards from shore, Warren was too exhausted to continue swimming and drown. His body was recoved the next day. His friend was able to keeping going until a native in a boat came along before he collapsed.

Warren grew up in Hudson, MA, the number five child of nine children to Charles E. and Ellen F. Huston, who later moved to Moultonborough, NH.
