LT. COLONEL ALFRED A. CUNNINGHAM Alfred Austell Cunningham was born in Atlanta, Georgia on 8 March 1882. As a young man he was deeply interested in the balloon flights of that era, and in 1903 young Cunningham made two known balloon ascensions. On 25 January 1909, Alfred A. Cunningham accepted an appointment as 2nd Lt. in the United States Marine Corps. He served on the Battleship New Jersey in 1909, the Battleship North Dakota in 1910, and the Cruiser Lancaster in 1911. His interest in flying con- tinually grew, and in 1912 his ambition was attained when he became the first pilot in the Marine Corps. After a total instruction time of but 2 hours and 40 minutes he made his first solo flight. He then in turn instructed other pilots, and was in charge of Marine Corps avia- tion during the First World War. He was most active in the promotion of military aviation, and after 26 years in the United States Marine Corps, he retired from active duty in August 1935 with the rank of Major. While in retirement he was promoted to the rank of Lt. Colonel. He died on the 27th day of May 1939. In recognition of Lt. Colonel Cunningham ' s contribution to Marine Corps Aviation, the United States Navy honored his name with the launching of the U.S.S. Alfred A. Cunningham DD 752. The ship was officially launched by his widow on 3 August 1944.
