His residence of record was New York and he enlisted 28 November 1940 in New York City (# 32000175).

The B-24J was part of a formation bombing Rangoon and about fifteen minutes from the target, they were attacked by enemy fighters. The B-24J lost the #1 engine and fell behind the formation, losing altitude. The bombs were dropped over the target. The B-24J seemed to maintain an altitude of 9,400 feet until south and east of Akyab. It entered a heavy cloud bank and was not seen again.
