The cousins, who attended Gaithersburg High School, were both members of the National Guard and entered active service with the Army when the Guard was activated in February, 1940.

His wife lives with a sister, Mrs. Margaret King, also of Gaithersburg. Sergt. Elmer Offutt is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Elmer O. Offutt, Gaithersburg." [After some additional research, the February 1940 date is probably an error. The Marlyland National Guard was placed in Federal Service February 3, 1941.
