I have a lot of photos my dad took and brought back. I have posted them on other sites and don't want to repeat the process and hog the space. I will post one my dad likes. It's of his gun section on a firing mission during the Bulge. He caught the field piece in the battery position (re-coil). The 319th G.F.A. used the 75mm pack howitzer.

I dont know if you can make out what is written on the front of this pic, it says
"movie star" and on the reverse it says... cadet buddy Joe Marcoux, played in "God is my co-pilot" then he wrote UGH! Hot Pilot
Oh, by the way all these are copies of photos from a grouping I have from Capt. Dale A. Wesenberg B-17 pilot 15th AAF, 2nd BG, 49th Sq.

Another of Grant Delong, he was my grandpa's neighbor after the war, and my dad and Grant's daughter used to read comics in the attic while they spent time together.
