Lt. Commander John Rusinko, of the US Navy during WWII, served his country very well but he was not a man for battle. He was a man with a mission and a man with a vision. John Rusinko was a War Photographer. He took photographs during World War II. He captured all sides of the war in his pictures including gatherings of military personnel from both sides, Japan and the United States. He was honored with a sword from Chiang Kai-shek.

After the war he returned to Minneapolis. He was an English professor at the University of Minnesota. He and his wife traveled the United States; Jack created photograph books of their travels representing each of the 50 states. His eye and his vision have captured history and when you look at his photographs they transport you back to a time and a place that will never be forgotten.
