    "Earl received a B.S. degree from Texas College of Mines and Metallurgy (1952), (now known as University of Texas at El Paso). He was a retired chemist, geologist, and heavy mechanic on diesel engines and gas line compressors.

    Just like his distant cousin, he probably achieved this with the G.I. Bill and a little help from the deeds of his cousins and brothers. The Sullivan Law probably didn't hurt things either.

    Cpl. J. Howard Whittington also received his B.S. in Chemistry under the G.I. Bill. Earl, just like his distant cousin, was another almost "Ryan" in a "Saving Private Ryan" scenario. Earl was already well underway , however, before Enoch was KIA. It probably altered his service direction after 1943. It probably helped him to continue building planes, rather than carrying a rifle."
