The father's surname shows a problem that I saw on other pages where a letter was not typed but it's obvious what should go there. In this case, I followed the strict rules and wrote dams instead of Adams but I would have rather inserted the A

CM

College Fraternities and Previous military service or training fields likely were typed as "None" not "one." The ribbon was failing and not all letters were showing up.
