JDM in uniform.  He was discharged as a Lt. Colonel.  His time in India was “monotonous” as he put it, and he never returned.  His job was as an ordinance officer in the India-China-Burma theater.

JDM said  of this experience:  “...The worst part of this place is the monotony.  There is only so much to do outside of duty, and when you have been to all the places once, there isn’t much point in further visits.”

JDM  on extreme right. Second from left is  Wild Bill Donovan who 

was the first head of the OSS.  He was on tour of various

 military operations before heading back to Washington, D.C.

I came across this in one of the boxes in the Collection:
