I drove my dad up to Austin Friday to meet up with a buddy of his that he met in Adak Alaska waiting to ship out to Korea in 1950. I brought a couple of uniform jackets and helmets to capture it. My dad is on the right in both picturespost-8015-0-74537000-1520216949_thumb.jpegpost-8015-0-27597000-1520216963_thumb.jpeg
