The Real Thing

The last couple of posts have basically been “playing army,” but this one deals with a real soldier.

When I learned through one of my magazine subscriptions that a veteran was looking for a war poster that included him, I got busy. Found it, and sent him a link to this.

He wrote back thanking me and included some fascinating details:

“This is the one which I thought I would never see again.
This was taken on a train coming from Louisville, KY
I was on leave going to
see my mother before I shipped overseas.
The one about five back in uniform
with cap on right side is me. I am sitting on the arm of seat.”
