Biographical Information

William M. "Bill" Dorough was born in Little Rock, Arkansas, in 1929. He enlisted in the Arkansas Army National Guard in 1950 at the age of twenty-one. He served in the Korean War for one year beginning in January 1951 as a sergeant with the Headquarters Battery, 936th Field Artillery Battalion. Dorough served in fire direction and in the personnel department, but his main duty was transporting troops and ammunition as a driver of a 6x6 truck.
