My Father-in-law

Jack King and baseball team in Papua, New Guinea

Jack King was my father-in-law, and my buddy. He served in New Guinea in WWII. Here he is with his baseball buddies!! He’s on the front row, second from left.

He was one of the best baseball players in Wythe County, Va (his home was Ivanhoe, Va), and was selected to play on a special team the Army created during the War.
