Dad with Airborne command patch on sleeve.
I had never noticed this as it was hidden by the edge of the frame.
Inspecting a crashed British plane.
Please id this if you can.
Possibly Kansas State College

Dad must have thought he was at a motel 6 and walked off with this towel from the Santa Ana Army Air Base.
Servicemen's maps of the United States
I had never looked closely at these, as i was a little disgusted that some one did a little coloring on the front of one of them.
After closer inspection, the art work turns out to be a layout of Dad'd travels.
It is hard to see until you put the untouched one beside it.

Nice items thanks for sharing! I have liked seeing what you have added over the years to this thread really cool to see everything you have from your fathers service, lucky he kept it all, and in such good condition! If only my family members did the same, but sadly most of their stuff from their time in the service they threw away long before I got into the hobby of collecting.

Can't read the tail number on the pancaked aircraft, but if you decipher it try putting it into the database link below.
Thank you Simon for the info. I re scanned the photo and still can't read it.
Dad is on the far right kneeling.

The destroyed bridge is the one over the Rhine at Worms.

Original colorized photos of Dad. These are possibly from his time at Camp Polk with the 8th Armored, or during his air crew training.
