Daniel Spang Hunter Jr.

Lieutenant Hunter was 23 when he died during World War II. I checked in our local newspaper archives to see if I could find out more details about his death. On a stateside military assignment for the Army Air Corps, he was involved in an automobile accident which left him with multiple injuries include fractures of his jaw and both legs. He died a week later in McCluskey General Hospital in Temple, Texas, on June 13, 1944. Hunter left behind a wife Martha and baby daughter Judith.
