In 1916, in the year that James Dopson was born, in June, the U.S. Congress authorized a plan to expand the armed forces over the next five years. Called the National Defense Act of 1916, the national law expanded the National Guard and Army (the Army added an aviation unit), created the Reserves, and gave the President expanded authority to federalize the National Guard.

In 1955, at the age of 39 years old, James was alive when on September 30th, movie star James Dean, 24, died in a car accident.

Dean died, his passenger and the other driver survived.

In 1962, by the time he was 46 years old, on August 5th, actress and sex symbol Marilyn Monroe died in Brentwood California. She was ruled to have died from suicide due to a drug overdose.
