Editor of The Washington Veterans News

The Washington Veterans News, July, 1948, front cover

From back in the day when newspapers were of a decent size (This copy measures a whopping 17x22 inches). Here is the front page of The Washington Veterans News, published by the Department of Washington of the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the U.S. The main "important" news of this issue is covered in the main headline and Gordon's bylined column regarding Charles Ralls's endorsement for national VFW Post. (The "gaps" in the image are from scanning, curtting, and pasting a newspaper way too big for my scanner.)


The Washington Veterans News Staff Box

The The News's Staff Box lists Jack Gordon as "Editor-In-Chief." He was apparently the only paid employee of the Washington Department. Two years later he was promoted to the D.C. offices.
