For several years there were many Walts claiming to be the Sailor photographed in that LIFE Magazine's iconic image.
The Text snippet above is from the 2012 book (linked at AMAZON US, above) which expands on the story and indicates that Phot Recognition software has proved that Mendonsa really was that Sailor in the Times Sq. NY picture dated Aug 14 1945.
