He came out a Lt. in the Marines, and re-upped for WWII. The Marines wouldn't take him (too old), but the Army Air Corps did-apparently one of the oldest 2nd Lt's in the War! He flew the Channel taking pictures from the air for the Army. A VMI classmate (Virginia Military Institute, 1921) got him assigned to Military Intelligence at the Pentagon, so the family moved to the Washington, DC area (Arlington, VA) for the duration of WWII, and then returned to Richmond, VA. He was promoted to Capt, Major and finally Lt. Colonel.1 Robert was listed as the head of the family of on the census of 1 April 1940 in 1111 West Avenue, Richmond, Richmond City, Virginia, USA, Robert was living with his wife and two small sons and a nurse.
