Photo Number 364

Military and a lady

Sister or girlfriend?  Someone special is getting their photo taken with a soldier.  He seems proud she seems matter of fact.  I wonder if he made it back?  This photo was more than likely taken in 1917 or 1918.

The United States was in the First World War in actual combat for only seven and a half months and during that time 116,000 were killed and 204,000 were wounded.

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)


  1. Another great photo Connie.

  2. The two shadows in the foreground caught my eye and make me think they are boyfriend/girlfriend rather than brother/sister.

  3. I think there was a romantic attachment here... looking closely at her face I see something more that "what me worry?"

  4. Sister, unless it is a young romance. It is a great shot.
