Date: December 5, 1945
L. Ron Hubbard is discharged from the Oak Knoll Naval Hospital and ordered to report to his last station as a USNR officer, the Officer Separation Center in San Francisco. His post there lasts only one day, during which the formalities of separation are conducted. (He was then detached, albeit still on active duty, from which he was released on February 16, 1946.) During his time in the army, he never saw battle or smelled gunpowder fired in anger. The four medals he received (he would later claim over twenty medals) were the ones commonly given to those who served in the areas that he was in. He was not wounded and never was singled out for bravery or heroism despite claims to the contrary. All of his time in the navy is accounted for, he was not employed as a secret agent and he did not go behind enemy lines for any purpose at any time.
