    Here are several photographs I found at a garage sale this morning.
    I find the expression on the soldiers face and the poem intriguing. A love waiting at home, he looks a little “dreamy-eyed.”
    The other is a group Navy photo. The writing on the bottom says;
    U. S. Nav Tra Cen
    Co. Comd' r,
    D.W. Haskell Csp(a)
    San Diego, California, 13 Dec. 1944
    44-592
    Some of the identifying writing is a little difficult to read, this is my best interpretation.
    enjoy

      Soldier with the helmet-thats an early WWII photo, as the helmet liner is the early cardboard "fiber" liner.....

      My grandfather was at this same USNTC in April 1944. He had the same commander. Thanks for sharing
