Photo Number 371

WW2 Dad and Kids

This is a WWII era Army Soldier with some stair step children.  It looks like one of each plus one or the other.  Military life is sometimes difficult for families and especially for children.

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)

  1. Three chevrons on his sleeves indicates he's an enlisted man with the rank of Sargent. He appears well-decorated, so let's hope he was home from the war for good (but wonders how he fit "having" those babies in, if he was!)

    My dad was in the reserves when I only a baby - I don't remember his time away to "play soldier" (he was a Captain, doing his ROTC obligation) between the Korean and Vietnam wars. I have a picture much like this one - where Dad is holding me - and my older brother is in standing next to him holding his leg.

  2. Very sobering photo of the stair step children beside him. I hope he made it home too.

  3. I love this photo, it shows the importance of family support that the soldiers need when fighting for their country. I also love the background, the old house, and the trees look as though at the time when the photo was taken, they were about to gently sway with the wind.

  7. For a moment I thought it was my dad.
    I wonder about the babies grown old by now.

  8. My younger brother had a "bouncer" identical to the one in which the baby is sitting. Our mother called it a "teeter-baby" but that probably is not the correct spelling of the product.
