Appointed a second lieutenant in 1898. He served in the Spanish-American War, the Philippine-American War and in the Battle of Tientsin and the Boxer Rebellion in China. Dunlap received the Navy Cross for distinguished service as regimental commander during World War I. He gave his life to rescue a woman imprisoned in a landslide in 1931. The USS Dunlap, a Mahan-class destroyer, was named after him. Lightly toned, otherwise in fine condition.
