When I look at a group of snapshots taken around the same time, the big question is always: Where are the rest? You could get at least a couple of dozen shots from a roll. It’s possible another man’s family is looking at the same faces and wondering who they are.
As a collection, these images provide a glimpse into the young lives of these members of the Greatest Generation.
In his last days, Dad said I should write the story of his life. He often mentioned how “1943 was a very interesting year.” A man of few words, he didn’t say much more about this when he was alive, but I’m hoping the photos speak volumes so I can fulfill his wish.
