In The Army ~ Day 245

My Dad served in the Korean war. He told me a little about his experiences in the army and now all I have are these photos. These were found in a closet in his home. I am sure he forgot where he had put them. Oh man I wish he was here to tell me all the details of these photos. I do know the first one is from 1951. It is written at the bottom from a Camp Stewart in Georgia. I inserted a red arrow pointing to my Dad. I recognized him from a larger photo I have of him in the army. Maybe you can see it. So cool.

Not sure what is going on in this one. Looks like the tanks are busy doing something. A training session perhaps. I assume this camp in Georgia was a training camp. If anyone can enlighten me please do so.

Thank goodness for photos. Forever memories. That is why it is so important for all of us to take photos. They last forever and can be passed down to your family. Thank you for allowing me to share some memories of my father. I was very proud of him.

  1. My dad was never in the military, but both of my brothers served as did my late husband. My best friend who just passed this March served in Patton’s 3rd Army in WWII. We buried him in the national cemetery with a 21 gun salute. First one I had ever been to, as my husband merited it but did not want a ceremony.

  2. Wow… such valuable memory and history records…
    My grandfather used to tell me stories about the occupation he went through too when I was really little
    but its sad I remember nothing…
