Peter Laurentius Xavier. MN NG, non-commissioned officer; USA, career non-commissioned officer, served prior to, during, and after WWII. Prior to the declaration of war, "Pete" was a small arms instructor at West Point, NCO rank of Sargent. He was by 1940, after the Allied debacle of Dunkirk, secretly posted to Great Britain for weapons training of British and British Commonwealth soldiers. Later, he was attached to OSS, where he carried out underground missions in France and Belgium, before he was attached to Gen. Patton's Third Army. Following WWII, Pete continued in service and was officially retired as a Corporal. According to one school of thought, he went over to the wild side of right-wing and racist politics, including the white-supremacist (and designated public threat) National State's Rights Party. However, according to a second school of thought, evidence points to an on-going role as an informant of the U.S. Government, an informant against the right-wing and racist organizations where he was affiliated. This second school of thought cites the fact that Pete's name either does not appear or has been blacked out of Freedom of Information documents from the FBI.[8] Such factors usually indicated a government operative whose identity the FBI (Army Intelligence?) wished to keep classified.
