WW2 Veteran of D Day and Okinawa battle, Jack Gutman and his daughter, Paula Shaw, CADC, DCEP, Grief Therapist
November 3, 2016
Richard and Joe welcomed Jack Gutman, a spry 90 yr old, WW2 veteran.
After training for months as a Medical Corpsman, his first active duty took him to England to prepare a hospital for the aftermath of the invasion of Europe. On D-Day he landed between Utah and Omaha Beaches in the invasion of Normandy, having the difficult task of caring for those killed and wounded during the attack. He later served the same function in the Invasion of Okinawa.
He is one of the few veterans who served in both theaters of the war. After dealing with undiagnosed PTSD for 66 years, he finally got counseling from the VA and today leads a happy, healthy life. Today he is one of the last living World War ll Veterans who is healthy, lucid and able to share with us the realities of D-Day, a colossal moment in our country’s history.
He is also a speaker and author who loves speaking to students and touching lives with his story. Recently he was video interviewed by the Smithsonian World War II Museum in New Orleans. This interview is now part of the museum’s archives. His book, “One Veteran’s Journey. To Heal, the wounds of War” is available on Amazon.
