Shared Photo: My grandfather, Paul Leroy Samson Sr.

+9 votes

I wanted to share this family photo of Paul Samson with the community. Location: New York. Date: 1922. He was not old enough to serve during WWI. However, he enlisted shortly after that. What is notable is that he advanced from Private First Class to Staff Sergeant in a single promotion, based upon his remarkable administrative skills. One of the smartest individuals I have ever known. He only had eight years of formal education.

Very handsome fellow! It sounds as if he had an illustrious career. He is a good example of intelligence being more important than education. Thanks for sharing.
