Not really a studio portrait, but cool just the same. This came from a loose group of Navy photos off of Adak. I assume this is a friend or family member of the owner of the other photos:

This photo is of Murray Bussard and Josephine Failla on their wedding day 8 Jun 1945.  She was a WAVE and had permission to get married in a wedding dress instead of her uniform.  Murray had served in the 19th Marines, 3d Marine Division on Bougainville before being returned to the States.  They are both still living!Jo&MurrayBussard jun 8 45 resized (526x640).jpg

Haven't added any in a year, so lets add these two, both unknowns.

 

 

7th Corps Early.jpg

A VII Corps guy, his early version patch tacked or sewn way down from where it's supposed to be.

And a 1st Rngr Bn vet, with a WAC, maybe his wife, photo taken while war still ongoing possibly late 1943, he may have been wounded in early in North Africa or Sicily, as he's not wearing a CIB.

86th Inf Div vet circa 1945, doesn't appear to have went with the division when it was sent out to the pacific post V-E Day, as he lacks the A&P ribbon.

This is my Uncle Levi, possibly on his wedding day? Looks like he was a T/3 within the medical dept. of the USAAF Air Transport Command. It appears that he's wearing the American Campaign and Pacific theater ribbons.

Found this at a yard sale a few weeks back. Unfortunately unnamed, but the photo album has photos of this flight nurse as a child, during her nurse training, and later some portraits from her time in the Army.

Very cool, like my Uncle in post #89 it looks like they were both in the medical dept. of the Air Transport Command, designated by the patch type crest they wear on their epaulettes.

Pardon the quality of the images......shot on the fly. P/O Blondy Scott and his new wife on their wedding day, I think this was the week after Pearl Harbor (need to check all of my info). The wife and Blondy were both present at Pearl during the attack.....she was a ARC nurse. The second photo is Blondy's uniform and his wife's wedding suit, both shown in the post wedding photo.
