 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
GEN Herron retired in Feb 1941, but was recalled to active duty in early 1942.

Between 1938 and Feb 1941, he documented his concern about the inability to defend Hawaii against aircraft carrier attack. 

After the attack on Pearl Harbor, he provided evidence to the US War Department's Board of Inquiry about LTG Short not reading Gen Herron's Briefing Book before the Change of Command in Feb 1941. 

In 1947, GEN Herron was promoted to General on the US Army Officer Retired List in recognition of his long distinguished service.
