Pacific Grove Tribune, CA Aug. 11, 1944
Lt. John de Lorimier to Bring Bride Home from South Dakota
Excitement reigns in the de Lorimier household this week, and no wonder! First Lieut. John de Lorimier arrived home Monday! And when the welcomes were all said he told the family of a wedding the offing, as he leaves this weekend for Rapid City, South Dakota, where he will marry Miss Lenore Whipple, daughter of Mr. & Mrs. William R. Walpole of the city, at a 9 o’clock nuptial mass, August 17, in the Cathedral. Lieutenant de Lorimier will bring his bride to Pacific Grove to meet his parents, Mr. & Mrs. George de Lorimier, and members of the family. They will then go on to Santa Monica, where Lieutenant de Lorimier is to be assigned new duty. The prospective bridegroom, one of Pacific Grove’s most popular sons, was recently awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross with four Oak Leaf clusters, for “extraordinary achievement while serving as a pilot on a B-17 Flying Fortress during combat duty over enemy territory.” He took part in many of the Eighth air force’s successful daylight bombing assaults on vital targets to Germany and enemy=held territory. He has been in service since before Pearl Harbor, enlisting while attending Santa Clara university. This week he reported at the Presidio for further orders.
