James Nead Davis – United States Marine
My paternal grandfather, James Nead Davis, served with the United States Marine Corps from 6/6/1946 – 4/29/1947. His date of entry into the service occurred one day after the declaration of German defeat was signed by the four allies on 6/5/1946.
“Papa” graduated from Robstown High School in Robstown, Texas 5/1946 and worked as a service station attendant before his enlistment. His U.S. Marine Corps Report of Separation (see above) listed Math as his course of greatest interest. What I find interesting is that his name and signature are “James Neal Davis” on the report.
Currently, I don’t have any pictures of James in uniform. His high school graduation portrait (see above) was taken shortly before his enlistment in the Marines.
