In WW II, John became a U.S. Marine after attending college in North Carolina. Sadly, he was K.I.A. (Killed in Action) on Okinawa after having served in the battle of Guadacanal. His squad of 14 Marines were in a cave trying to avoid the shelling from the enemy artillery when it took a direct hit. In his teen years he had been an all-star athlete on the 1938-39 Eastern H.S. city Championship basketball team. On the 21st of Feb., 1949, after his remains were returned to his country, members of that team gathered with many other folks at Cedar Hill cemetery to give John a proper funeral.
Note: the above information was gleaned from several articles in the Washington Post.
