Got Names! Revisiting the Leon’s Beach Medical Team Pictures

My friend Printy Arthur came through for us. He studied the pictures of Dr. William Lusk’s hospital corpsmen and helped us out with names. His best recollections of three first names follow. (Click on pictures to enlarge.)

So we’re missing only one first name here: Corpsman Boches’. Come on, someone help us out here!!

In the full beach team picture below, Dr. Lusk and eight corpsmen, we now have five complete names.

Printy Arthur thinks that one of the unknown men pictured above had the last name of Atsalas. Does this ring a bell anywhere out there? We know they all came home. Families…help us out!

    Wish I could help. My father was on Leyte, but was not wounded and never mentioned knowing any corpsmen there. Good Luck!
