4 of Ed and Iva's sons--Robert, Jack, Jake and Steve--served in the military during World War II. On 21 Aug 1944, the Jacoby's were notified that Robert was missing in action in France. Nearly 6 months later on 17 Feb 1945, the War Department notified the family that Robert had been killed in action on 31 Jul 1944.
Just a month before Robert was killed, Steve was seriously wounded in Saipan on 17 Jun 1944. He was hospitalized for 10 months. Jack was in the army and was stationed in New Guinea and the Philippines. Jake was wounded on 16 Feb 1946 while on Luzon with the 33rd Infantry Division.
Iva was in poor health from 1942 until her death in 1953.
