Cemetery, Calverton (Suffolk County), New York.|
Jack enlisted n the U.S. Army at Camp Upton in Yaphank, NY, on 8 Oct
1941 and volunteered for parachutist duty. He was probably
transferred directly to the 508th which was activated later that same
month at Camp Blanding, FL. He may have served in all four campaigns
that the 508th participated in.
