Wordless Wednesday ~ Off to War


This is a snapshot of my father-in-law with his sisters, Margaret and Belle, likely just before he headed to Army training for World War II in April 1943. One older brother, Alfred, enlisted in May 1941, and another older brother, Louis, enlisted in November 1942. I shared snapshots of them on Memorial Day.

    1. Yes, it was quite a treasure to receive this bag of photos, older and newer, from a recently deceased aunt of my husband's, with many photos that family members had forgotten about.

      Thanks for reading and commenting.
