post-32632-0-88627700-1585276106.jpg Alan & Jean Yanco, both from Boston but moved here (Pacific NW) in the 1950's. My best friend from High school's parents. They are both passed now. Alan was a SSGT in the ETO. I'm not sure what exactly his job was. In civilian life he was a furrier.

I sincerely hope the GI got to experience his child growing up with his wife.

 Tragedy all around I'm sorry to report on this one.

 

h.jpg.881bf65931762250699763006ff63e38.jpg

Euzebe Huval Abbeville, Louisiana. with his wife Yolande, Huval as we see was in the 65th Inf Div when he sat for this with her in 1944, Huval apparently was one of those draftees that took his basic with a division, in this case the 65th which was at Camp Shelby, Mississippi. Huval comes into the service in February 1944, and this photo has to be taken in like early May of 44, with either his wife visiting him at Shelby, or he was home on a Pass. why do I say that? Because Yolonde Huval age 21 dies on May 23 during a simple operation, a tonsillectomy, an anesthesia foul up, damn right!

 

As for Huval, he goes home no doubt for a bit, and  he later goes overseas as an individual replacement to Italy, apparently sometime in June, late June lets say the following month after his wife's death and is assigned to the 3rd Infantry Division, 30th Infantry, Company not known at this time. Private First-Class Euzebe Huval is Killed in Action in The Alsace October 3 1944.

 

He rests at the Epinal American Cemetery to this day, with Yolonde being back home in Louisiana.

A bittersweet story, if one believes it was in their destiny to be together, afterall.

Kathleen Kennedy (Of the Kennedy Clan) with her husband Lieutenant William Cavendish the Marquess of Hartington 5th Battalion Coldstream Guards Guards Armored Division, May 1944 at there wedding. The Marquess of Hartington was KIA in early September 1944 in a clash with SS Troops in Belgium, probably remnants of the 12th SS Panzer Division that were retreating though the area. The death of him added one more story to the Kennedy Curse, indeed Kathleen would herself be killed in an air  crash in 1948 somewhere in France we think with her friend and probable new boyfriend Peter Wentworth-Fitzwilliam, 8th Earl Fitzwilliam ( Wentworth-Fitzwilliam by the way fought with the Commandos in the recent war army Commandos I think). In the back ground is her ill fated brother Joseph P. Kennedy Jr Naval Aviator.

I’d hazard a guess it’s a pair of jump wings,  it appears the wife is wearing a sweetheart version of them.

Cavalry is correct. Vet served with the 101st. Here's the original uniform from the photo. Post-war he added the oval.

A very stylish wedding portrait of a unknown couple, a 1st Mar Div Marine. He has some kind of Aviation Striker Mark on his cuff.
