Hack Lane, the youngest in his family, entered service during WWII, and eventually retired from the US Air Force as Chief Warrant Officer 3. The US Air Force unofficially retired the rank of CWO in 1959, implying that Hack was promoted before that year.
When Hack first tried to enlist, they couldn't find his birth certificate. Eventually they found it under a different given name. When asked about the discrepancy, old Dr. York (cousin and family physician) replied that Emma couldn't decide a name quick enough, so he just put down some name that he liked.
