After graduating from the academy, he was assigned to USS San Francisco (CA-38) and was serving as signal officer on board that vessel at Pearl Harbor when the Japanese attacked the fleet there on Dec. 7, 1941. Before he detached from the ship in September, 1942, he participated in air action off Bougainville, the Salamaua Lae raid and the Guadalcanal Tulagi landings. He then returned to the United States for submarine instruction at the U.S. Naval Submarine School, New London, Conn.
