Last spring I happened upon a whole bunch of Military Photographs. Most are snapshots. They were in a bag along with other photos in an antique shop in Brainerd Minnesota. On the outside of the bag was this notation: Margaret Lundborg My Life 1930. It may or may not be a clue.
After looking at the photos I “think” that her brother may have been in the service..although it could have been her.
The Battle of Leyte an Island in the Philippines dates from 20 Oct to 31 December 1944. It was 67 years ago and I am doubtful that we will be able to locate any of the people in these photos..but we may be able to locate family.

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
** This collection of Military Photos were taken on Leyte, Okinawa and at a unknown military hospital. There are 60 snapshots..I will not present all of them..but I will present the ones that are marked with names. I contacted the 96th Division reunion web site and sent email copies of the photos to them last June..I have not heard anything back from them.
This Photo went Full Circle 131 on November 12 2015.
