Actually the John @ the Marine Base 1930 is John, Jr.(1905 - 1961). He was the son of the
John whom I spoke about in the post.
And because John, Jr. was in the USMC, I wondered if his mother Martha could have joined
the Ladies Auxiliary of the VFW based on son John, Jr.'s service. I know from looking
into the Ladies Auxiliary that now a woman can join based on service by someone in her
immediate family other than her husband but I don't know if such was the case back in
the time period of 1900 - 1937 when Martha died.
So far, no one in the family that I spoke with after I put up this post has ever heard
that John, Sr. (1869 - 1919) was ever in the service.
