Once in the Marine Corps, the Milwaukee Brewers' prexy Bill Veeck disappeared from view. Until the press caught up with him, his location was just like any other soldier,
"Somewhere in the South Pacific"
This view of him is dated September 1944 with the following press release:
Marine Private First Class Bill Veeck, formerly of the Chicago Cubs and now president - owner of the Milwaukee Brewers, American Association, is sketched Somewhere in the South Pacific by Marine Artist, Private First Class William J. Draut, of 1715 Crain Avenue, Evanston, Ill.
