As we are taking a tour of Wisconsin, here's one from Milwaukee, October 8, 1941. The soldier was stationed at Presidio of Monterey, Calif., where the couple had their first home together. The other couple are the witnesses, his brother and her sister.

These are so cool.

It's kind of sad that so many of these have gotten away from the families.

Last November was the first time I had seen a photo of my grandmother as a young girl. She has been dead for years and the photos were in the possession of my now elderly aunt who mailed them to my mother. It was strange as I had only seen her, and remembered her, as an old woman.

Keep them coming.

This is indeed a very interesting thread! These wedding/couple photos are really neat. I just acquired my first couples wedding photo today. This belonged to a Hispanic fellow in the Army Ground Forces Reserves named, George C. Romero. He sure found and married a nice lady. http://www.usmilitar...tyle_emoticons/default/thumbsup.gif

Got this one for my armor photo collection.
A large format wedding photo of a 13th AD GI and his bride.
Unfortunately not identified but a very nice photo anyway.

The happy couple ...

Close up of his insignia ...
