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
Some of the identifying writing is a little difficult to read, this is my best interpretation.

    The lady said to me, “these are relatives of mine, but I do not know who they are, so I am selling them”, amazing.

    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
