The photo is dated April, 1947 on the back. I don't know anything else about it. My grandfather was in the USMC. Thanks for looking!

    I would too, but it's a fairly small photo. My dad was born 7 months after this was taken. It's neat to know that my grandmother was carrying him and there my grandfather is off doing what supported the family and what he loved.

    Wouldn't it be nice to have your grandfather's Navy & Marine Corps issue G-1 leather jacket that he wearing in this photo. Great photo to have.

    That would be absolutely awesome to have! After he passed away I asked his "wife" at the time if I could have his dress USMC uniform. She said no, she later donated it to charity!!! She wasn't very nice to the family after my grandfather passed. It made me sick to my stomach.... still does.

    It's been said that we have memory so we can have roses in December. These things we collect are but trinkets given to us for a while. No one can take our memories from us.

    Exactly right Savoy. I have 26 years of memories with my grandfather. That lady he was married to when he passed was only in his life for 3 years. She may have taken all the material things, but I have what is best..... all the memories! :)

    She was at least good to him when I went to visit. I hope she was good to him when I wasn't there too.
