John Stefanek Memorial Display
Here is the second shadow box we created for my father, John B. Stefanek.
The flag with the one star was displayed in the window of my grandparents. This flag signified that they had someone missing in action. Otto and Trudy Schwarz traveled back to the prison camps and brought the two railroad spikes back for my father. They are displayed on either side of the flag. Then there is also a picture of my father, a picture of the bridge, Houston lapel pins and Australian lapel pins. There is also a brass plate with his name, Japanese POW, 1942 - 1945. (Hope this is what you were looking for.) We also have his first shadow box with his medals, picture, and flag that was on his coffin at Arlington. Best Regards, Jane Matthews (Jane and Matt).
