How many kids did john bradley, WWII iwo jima flag raiser have and what were their names?

Following his appearances at the last bond tour, John Bradley married his childhood sweetheart, Betty Van Gorp, settled down in Antigo, and had eight children. He rarely took part in ceremonies celebrating the flag raising, and by the 1960s avoided them altogether. He fulfilled his life-long dream by buying and managing his own funeral parlor, but was tormented by memories of the war. Betty says he wept in his sleep for several years and kept a large knife in a dresser drawer for “protection”. He also had many flashbacks of his best war pal Iggy, who was captured and tortured by Japanese soldiers. Bradley never could forgive himself for not being there to try and save his friend’s life. I could find no record of his children’s names.
