Jack was a true American Hero, recipient of the Medal of Honor for actions while serving on Iwo Jima who survived jumping on 2 Japanese hand grenades. Jack loved the Corps, his fellow MOH recipients and life in general. A jovial man who noted when shown a picture of my Bulldog named Lucas, “Honey someone named a d*mn dog after me, I can go to heaven now”! I’m sure he is sitting there telling Jesus who is seated at the right hand of the father, “Hey you’re in my chair”!
