More Images of Al’s War

February 6, 2013

If you’re stopping by this site for the first time, I encourage you to go to the archives and get a sense of what’s here so far.  You’ll follow my step-father through his four years of service during World War 2.  Many of the photos contained in one of the recently discovered tins are repeats of ones I’ve already posted.  But I thought the  ones below do add some new images to his journey through the war.

First, a formal portrait Al had taken as a Private First Class:

I can’t tell if the next two pictures were posed or not, but the first seems to show a GI, weapon at the ready, hidden in a field.  In the second, they’ve captured someone.

Gotcha!

The last three are just pictures of the unit at work and some on the town.  I like seeing what’s in the truck.  Do you see the guitar?

Still researching his ribbons and badges; I’ll post them soon.  Thanks for stopping by.
