1st Sergeant Victor E. Morman, wife Lucille, some time in 1944, Morman was 1st Sergeant of Headquarters Battery, 914th Field Artillery Battalion, 89th Infantry Division, of note is the wearing of the garrison Belt by him at this late date, no doubt to give a more stylish appearance.

I was trying to find a wedding photo of early 70s-early 80s Pittsburgh Steeler Great Franco Harris' parents, but no dice, he, Franco, is the son of a African American GI, Cad Harris, and an Italian War Bride, Gina Parenti, though Franco was born years after the war, at Fort Dix New Jersey in March 1950, his Father evidently reenlisted a few times, no idea if he went for the 20-30 year hitch.

 

 

Franco Harris of course, Rookie of the Year 1972.

Thought I'd add a WWII wedding photo of my Aunt and Uncle, Alfred and Shandra Silva.  Photo taken in the Fort Pierce area where my Uncle was stationed, serving in the Coast Guard.  He spent his wartime service at Fort Pierce, posted to Mounted Beach Patrol.
