Jack Caleca, MD was a medical doctor serving in the Pacific during World War II. He was stationed on many of the islands and even has a picture of himself with the Enola Gay. This puts him in the middle of the action that led to the end of the war against Japan. He was a captain at that point but soon after the war, he was promoted to major. As with all front-line medical personnel during times of war, Jack endured trying times and had to improvise to save the lives of our boys who were wounded. Besides his medical service, he was a beloved husband, father, uncle, and all-round family man. As with all wars, WWII saw great advances in medicine and Jack played a part in the development of some important improvements.
Diane Campbell Green is the author of On Being Great Again as well as being one of Dr. Jack’s nieces. She relates not only Caleca’s war story, but she also relates personal stories of her memory of her uncle. Jack’s was a typical, large, close-knit Italian family. This book will enlighten you as to how large families can exist in harmony and love. The pictures Diane shares that Jack’s widow gave to her are from his days in the Pacific, helping to keep our way of life free. On Being Great Again: A Surgeon, A Soldier, A Family Man, Jack J. Caleca, MD should interest anyone wanting to learn more about the real-life of army doctors in times of war and their life after service.
