Fred served as a Staff Sergeant, 72nd Squadron, 52nd Air Service Group, U.S. Army Air Forces during World War II. It is unsure if he was a passenger or part of the crew of C-47 #44-76232

He resided in Fannin County, Texas prior to the war.

He enlisted in the Army Air Corps on February 13, 1942 in Sherman, Texas. He was noted, at the time of his enlistment, as being employed as a Actor and also as Single, without dependents.
