Part 2 of 3: Meet Suzabelle

Suzabelle is the name Draper Kauffman gave the 500lb Japanese bomb he defused following the bombing of Pearl Harbor. No one (U.S. that is) had ever seen this type of ordnance before prior to Kauffman defusing and dismantling the bomb for intelligence. He was awarded his 1st Navy Cross for the operation.

Suzabelle, the Pin-Up Girl, was commissioned in honor of Kauffman’s remarkable exploits.

Zero Point & Kopis Mobile will have Suzabelle prominently displayed within their booth at SOFIC, #1818.
