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”!

Semper Fidelis and God Bless you on your final journey
