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!post-10333-0-48627600-1423853896.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.

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.

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.

James McGuiness and his very attractive wife Sheila, Sheila, English, were married in England, he evidently went on without her due to military dictates, and met her on her arrival in NYC sometime in late 1945, James and Sheila presumably settled, at least initially, in James's hometown of Arlington Mass.

"I have only two men out of my company and 20 out of some other company. We need support, but it is almost suicide to try to get it here as we are swept by machine gun fire and constant barrage is on us. I have no one on my left and only a few on my right. I will hold." (Message sent by 1st Lt. Clifton B. Cates. USMC, 96th Co., Soissons, 19 July 1918 - later 19th Commandant of the Marine Corps 1948-1952)
