veteran Ray Amstutz, left of the Military Policeman, marched once again in the Tulsa Veterans Day Parade, held this year on Nov. 12. Wearing his original uniform and carrying a Japanese flag souvenir and his duffle bag, he insists on walking the entire mile and a half route every year.

An engineer in the 1383rd Engineering Petroleum Distribution Co., Amstutz served under General MacArthur’s Pacific divisions from New Guinea to Tokyo and was on the first U.S. ship to arrive in Japan prior to the Japanese surrender.
