Thayer's Notes:

a Maj. Dwyer's career summary (Vol. V) is from the Addenda at the end of the volume; in its sequential place on p397, there is just a summary of his ranks and units, "no information having been received".

[decorative delimiter]

b As can be seen from the dates, this is clearly an error, and it has been corrected in the Vol. VI recapitulation of the same period; probably the post assignments of some other graduate that was shuffled in by accident.
