 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
BG Eades began his military career before WWI.  He served as a Military Intelligence Officer.  He had transferred to the Army Reserves after the Great War, and after the attack on Pearl Harbor he applied for Active Duty again.

He was told that he was too old to come back on Active Duty, but his civilian occupation as an Attorney in the Dallas area helped out as he had contacts in the War Department in Washington DC.

BG Eades was allowed to re-enter the Regular Army as a LTC, and at the time was probably one of the oldest LTC's in the Army at that point.

After WWII he again went into a USAR status until he retired.  He had over 38 years of federal service.

In civilian life, he was a very successful lawyer, both in private practice and for the Veterans Administration.  He was active in the American Legion and the Dallas Bar Association.  He was survived by his two sons, Eric Jr. and Richard, daughter Diana, and wife Fleda.
