Re: Jefferson David DORROH (09314)

I believe his name was Jefferson Davis Dorroh, Jr.

He started flight training while in college. A date I found (possible when he joined the Naval Reserve) was 9 July, 1941.

The above seems to say he was to be commissioned (in the Marine Corps) upon completion of flight training.

The date when he retired was in April, 1963.

DOR as 2LT USMCR 1 Jan 1945 Lineal List USMC/USMCR Officer was 12 Mar 1942

DOR CPT USMCR from Olynky, Stars and Bars - 31 May1943

DOR MAJ USMCR in 1 Jan 1945 Lineal List USMC/USMCR Officers - 25 Aug 1944

Olynky notes his middle name as David.

Find-a-Grave for Jefferson Davis Dorroh (Jr):

https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/...n-davis-dorroh

He died in 2008.

His father Jefferson Davis Dorroh (Sr) was born in 1889, the same year that Jefferson Davis, president of the Confederate States of America during the Civil War, died.
