Frank Ervin Corn, who retired from the Navy after serving more than 32 years and achieving the rank of Chief Warrant Officer, died in Spokane, Washington in 1988.
Frank Ervin Corn was buried in Arlington National Cemetery across the Potomac River from Washington, DC. His burial included full military honors with seven horses pulling the flag draped caisson, 6 of the horses with riders and the seventh with the empty boot, indicating the fallen comrade.
Michael Robert Patterson was born in Arlington and is the son of a former officer of the US Army. So it was no wonder that sooner or later his interests drew him to American history and especially to American military history. Many of his articles can be found on renowned portals like the New York Times, Washingtonpost or Wikipedia.
