Re: Eugene Anthony Valencia promotion dates.

Eugene Anthony Valencia
1. 7 Aug 1941 – received from NRAB Oakland CA as S2c V5 at NAS Pensacola from muster roll 31 Aug 1941; discharge for the purpose of accepting appointment as Aviation Cadet same date
2. 9 Feb 1942 – ENS USNR AV(N) date of rank from 1 Jan 1943 USNR Register
3. 25 Apr 1942 – ENS USNR (AVN) NRAB Oakland received from NAS Pensacola DIF
4. Shows up on a 9 May 1943 VF-9 roster as a LTJG AV(N)
5. 1 Apr 1944 – LT USNR AV(N) date of rank from 1 Jul 1944 USNR Register
6. 1 Jun 1946 – LCDR USN date of rank from 1 Jan 1949 USN Register
7. 1 Jul 1954 – CDR USN date of rank from 1 Jan 1955 USN Register

I did find one LTJG who was commissioned ENS USNR AV(N) on the same day as Valencia, one Albert V Anderson (113063), for whom I can confirm was promoted from ENS USNR AV(N) to LTJG USNR AV(S), 1 Mar 1943, which would be about the right time frame for Valencia being promoted as well. A little over a year as an ensign was fairly typical for the time. Valencia's service # was 113030, so they were pretty close.
