John Elwin Filnt is my mothers Brother. I beleive that the location of the photo was Camp Blanding Florida. In 1940, Camp Blanding was leased to the United States Army as an active duty training center. The post was originally used by New England and Southern troops preparing for deployment overseas. I am truly sorry that I never got to meet him as I was born middle 40's. I do know from growing up that the family was truly hurt by his death yet they celebrated him for giving his life for the defense of our country.
