 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
Lieutenant j.g. Richard Rall was Killed in Action on December 7, 1941, during the attack on Pearl Harbor.  He was stationed on board the USS Pennsylvania BB-38.
LTjg. Richard Rall was forever enshrined in the Navy's history books as the first to propose a plan for aid stations and the placement of first aid boxes around the ship. He proposed additional first aid training for all hands.

Being intelligent and well liked, he was apparently able to obtain the ear of the admirals. His recommendations were put into place and, as a result, many lives were saved. For this service, he was recognized as a hero.

As fate would have it, Lt. Rall was killed in one of those supplementary aid stations.
