Max was one of the first American soldiers to engage the Japanese in an offensive military operation. One of the many missions during his service critical to the early war effort was the mission to see that the Japanese were not successful in building an airport at Guadalcanal.
His service along with countless other veterans were crucial to the eventual success of the allied forces in turning the tide in the Pacific war effort which ultimately lead to the surrender of Japan.
