Remembrances wrtten by his Uncle John amd Aunt Alice: Training - After two years of college at the University of Montana, Pierre entered the Navy V-5 program in 1942, and was sent to St. Mary's College in San Francisco, California. In 1943 he was sent to the Naval Base in Pasco, Washington for pre-flight training in Stearman planes. From Pasco, he was sent to Corpus Christi, Texas for advanced training in SBD dive bombers. While at Corpus Christi and before receiving his wings and commission as a 2nd Lieutenant, he was transferred to the Marine Corps where he did receive his wings and 2nd Lieutenant commission. He was then transferred to Kingsville, Texas where he was made an instructor in dive bombing, which he did for 8 months. He was then sent to Great Lakes Naval Training Station in Chicago, where he practiced take-off and landing from aircraft carriers. After 1600 hours of flying time, he went on active duty and was sent to the island of Ulithi in the South Pacific, staying there until the end of the war in 1945. While at Ulithi he received his 1st commission. He returned to the U.S. and was sent to Quantico, Virginia to the Air Infantry School which only required four hours per month flying time. Since he wanted more flying time, he then went on inactive duty and came home. In March 1946 he reentered the University of Montana for two years and graduation.
