Millard O. Rorke was from Hillsboro ND.  He achieved the rank of Lt. Col. in the US Army.  He is at Find a Grave #388875.  He was born March 11, 1914 and died November 27, 1993.  His first wife Marjorie ( April 18, 1915 to May 13, 1988) was a PFC in the US Army and they are buried together at The National Memorial Cemetery of Arizona.  After Marjorie died he married Rosalie Mae Foogman Kaldor in 1989, they were high school classmates and made their home in Mesa Arizona and on Lake Melissa near Detroit Lakes Minnesota.
Thanks for stopping by.

From Iggy:
Millard was the son of Norin (1878 - 1935 : Find A Grave Memorial# 38252733) and Laura Borke (1890 - 1955 : Find A Grave Memorial# 38252712) whom I suspect is the older lady in the photo.

 This photo went Full Circle 94 on November 24, 2014.

  1. Millard was the son of Norin (1878 - 1935 : Find A Grave Memorial# 38252733) and Laura Borke (1890 - 1955 : Find A Grave Memorial# 38252712) whom I suspect is the older lady in the photo.

    I suspect Marilyn is the baby, born in early 1943.

    There is an interesting newspaper article about Millard here: http://mse.stparchive.com/Archive/MSE/MSE05261960P01.php (second item on left side) titled "Five Hundred Gaurdsmen..."

    http://www.eversonfh.com/GuestBook.aspx?ID=371 shows a "Walter and Marilyn Borke Bialobrzeski of Mesa, AZ" who is the baby in the photo.

  3. I heard from Marilyn, she is not sure if the photo is her. If not she will get it to the proper cousin. I will mail the photo on November 17 to Arizona:)
