There is no biographical file for pilot Ahroon in the archives of the National Air & Space Museum (NASM), Washington, DC.
We are fortunate to have pilot Ahroon's daughter-in-law share with us some details, photographs and documents that illustrate his life in the Navy. She provides the following biographical sketch
Thomas Andrew Ahroon was born May 3, 1907 in Baltimore, MD. He attended the Baltimore Polytechnic Institute and later the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD where he was commissioned an ensign July 6, 1928. Upon graduation, he was assigned to battleship duty where he served in various capacities as a turrent officer, assistant engineer, assistant navigator and communicator. He was assigned to flight training at NAS Pensacola in 1929 and received his wings in 1930.
As an aviator he flew from the battleship PENNSYLVANIA the Fleet Flag ship, and from all of the famous old carriers as a member of the Fighting Five. He had shore duty as a test pilot at Anacostia and for a short time before the war he assisted in building the small Norfolk Air Station.
Captain Ahroon spent a year at the Industrial College of the Armed Forces and was attached to the Armed Forces Special Weapons Project for duty in connection with the development of atomic weapons. He reported as Chief of Staff, Carrier Division TWO, in August 1952.
He attained the rank of Rear Admiral on July 17, 1956 and won the Legion of Merit, the Bronze Star Medal with Combat V, and a Presidential Unit Citation Ribbon with two stars, the American Defense Service Medal, Asiatic-Pacific Campaign Medal with one silver and four bronze stars, the WWII Victory Medal and the Philippine Liberation Ribbon with two stars. His remark, "These show I am on a team with a lot of men who, felt fear but nevertheless had guts---and got results."
