|This is a picture of my deceased husband Jack Smith Chapman (1923-1975)
on the island of Ie Shima during the war. At my other
home I have the book you show and photos and a story he wrote.
Your list seems to have him listed as Zack S Chapman.
I remember him mentioning Meyer Bushkin, so I know I am in the right
group. After the war he attended USC. He played second string football, Graduated
Cum Laude and went to graduate school. We married on February
2 ,1952 and had five children. He taught school for 18 years
in the San Fernando Valley, Calif. He died suddenly June 17,1975
due to blockage of the artery to the heart just before the
bypass surgery became popular. I was about to send this photo to
my family and decided to look up IE SHIMA and found your website.
