<div>
&nbsp;<em>August Dorsey Parker</em> was born in Houston, Texas on 3 October 1918, the son of August Dorsey Parker, Sr. and Mary Louise (Suttle) Parker. He graduated from San Jacinto High School in 1936 and attended the University of Texas for two years before joining the Class of 1942.</div>
<p>
Dorsey was a tested and proved Texan. Like many of us, he barely outpointed the academic department both plebe and yearling years, but then joined the great middle class during the remainder of his cadet days. He was conscientious, thorough in every detail, friendly and good-natured. Dorsey loved a good &ldquo;rat race&rdquo; complete with splashing water bags. Put him in a handball court and you had your hands full to keep up with him.</p>
<p>
After graduation Dorsey married Mary Catherine DeMars in Houston on 5 June 1942, and they hurried off to Fort Benning. Mary Catherine went with him when he was assigned to the 359th Infantry Regiment, 90th Infantry Division at Abilene, Texas. On 8 September 1943 their son, Kenneth Dorsey Parker, was born in Abilene.</p>
<p>
Dorsey returned to Benning for a short course in heavy weapons after which he rejoined his outfit in Abilene. California maneuvers beckoned and it was then on to England, picking up his promotion to first lieutenant on 18 January 1943. While in the 359th Infantry Regiment, Dorsey was a platoon leader, company executive officer, and commanded a cannon company. On D-Day, Dorsey and his B Company hit the beaches and he was killed in action three days later. He was awarded the Bronze Star Medal and the Purple Heart.</p>
<p>
In a letter to me Mary Catherine wrote, &ldquo;He willingly gave his all for his country. Dorsey exemplified the West Point motto as he was truly dedicated to God, Country, and Family. He had developed an ailment that the doctors could not diagnose and was offered a desk job. He immediately turned the offer down, feeling that he could serve his country better with his men. I was very proud of his decision, not knowing at the time what it would cost.&rdquo; This is our Dorsey.</p>
<p>
Mary Catherine has remarried and lives in Houston. Their son lives in Bellville, Texas.</p>
