Last Known Activity
Frank was a jockey most of his life outside his service in World War II and at the time of his death, was working out/training thoroughbreds for his employer, a doctor in New Albany, Indiana.  He had just finished working out on one horse, got off the tell the doctor how the horse worked and was preparing to get into the saddle of a second horse when he fell to the ground.  The doctor said there was nothing that could have been done, he died before he hit the ground of a massive heart attack and that he had had another heart attack within recent years the family knew nothing about.   Frank once said he wanted to die with his boots on...he did...his riding boots were buried with him.

World War II/Asian-Pacific Theater/Central Pacific Campaign (1941-43)
From Month/Year
December / 1941
To Month/Year
December / 1943

(Central Pacific Campaign 7 December 1941 to 6 December 1943) The war in the Central Pacific began with the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on 7 December 1941. Six months later an AAF task force took part in the Battle of Midway, in which a great Japanese fleet was defeated. But another year and a half elapsed before American forces began an offensive against Japanese positions in the Central Pacific. It was then, on 20 November 1943, that landings were made in the Gilberts, on Makin and Tarawa, with the Marines at the latter place becoming engaged in one of the bloodiest battles of the war.
