I recently took a trip to Phoenix Arizona and my wonderful uncle (the baby) went out of his way to have the negatives reproduced for my family collection of photos. I love this picture so much, not only because it's of my family but my grandmother is a looker and my grandfather  was so handsome.  Oh and my moms eyes!

Doesn't it though?  I almost edited out the cigarette but again a sign of the times. He was a proud and humble man. I miss him so much, but so thankful for the life he made for his family and the generations that followed. He was a CWO4 in the USA Army.  He spent many many years away from his family, but he did it with out hesitation.

 

 

Thanks John. This picture is a favorite.
Just about everybody smoked back then. It was hard not to with all the advertising.
