Shared Photo: Three Phelps Brothers

+9 votes

I wanted to share this family photo of Three Phelps Brothers with the community. It's special as it was taken after they had all returned from WWII. From Lft., Jay was stationed in the Pacific as a radiologist and at one time X-rayed General Patton. Next is Jeff (my dad), who enlisted in 1939 and was with the First Infantry "The Big Red One" and was in Africa in 1940, then in England, Germany, Belgium (The Battle of the Bulge), and finally in France where he is shown in the Stars and Strips in the front row of the Allied soldiers marching down the Champs Elysee after France was liberated. Tom was also in the Army, but I don't know where he served 

Location: Unknown but suspect New York CIty. Date: unknown.

Handsome fellas in the photo, but the flowers are a little wild on the wall.  Sometimes when we go back and look at old pictures, we have to wonder about our judgment back in the day.
