Regarding the following comment in your reference on his military record -
"He reportedly was in the D-Day invasion.) "
I have a copy of his Coast Guard record which clearly states he served at Normandy on D-Day. He was putting the British ashore . In addition in an interview found on the November 1952 issue of Argosy Magazine written by Bill Heinz there is a photograph on my father aboard a ship at Normandy when he was interviewed by Heinz. This is found on page 19. I am pretty sure he was at D-Day. I would recommend you remove the word "reportedly" here and in the wikipedia entry .
