Yes this one deserves it's own topic, just look at the Goatee on this WWII GI, a Cavalryman from the 83rd Infantry Division's 83rd Reconaissnce Troop(Mecz) one Tech Sgt Walter Korszniak. He appears to be photographed while still on active duty, I see no Ruptured Duck.

Honestly, I've seen it before where a Soldier will only shave part of his beard yet he had a shaving profile.

You Know for some reason when I see Korszniak's thin goatee I'm reminded of this character from Star Trek original series.
Lets make this a Topic where we can post any and all non standard, going against the times BEARDS on U.S. Serviceman in WWII, in formal portraits like Korszniak's, and informal photographs, or candid shots, I think this will be a fun topic to look for these kind photos for.

Anymore that can be found by other members please do post. remember they must be purposely grown beards and goatees, and not serviceman with unshaved beards because of combat, Submariners okay as long as they are not onboard boats, and are back in Dress White/Blues in port.

The most we were allowed to go was a few weeks without shaving during the surge in Iraq. My company was living in and clearing villages, so it was an out of sight out of mind sort of situation.
