Francis M. Reeder was born Maurice Muir Ruttinger and changed his name for personal reasons prior to WWII. He enlisted in the Army on 28 April 1941 and served in the South Pacific as a Warrant Officer. During this time he contracted malaria from which he suffered the rest of his life. His military application says he was born in Missouri, however, his parents had a farm in Kansas where he grew up. He and his wife Mildred are survived by four daughters. Photos are from 1943 in the South Pacific. Francis is on the right in the first one and believed to be the man on the left in the second one.
