Veterans

These are my uncles, Albert and Jay.  Photo was taken in 1907.  They enlisted together.  However, Albert was told that he could not enlist with his brother.  So he left the line of volunteers, and rejoined the line at the rear, and used the last name of some family friends instead of his own last name.

These are some photos of my uncles’ military days:

    What great pictures. I think it would be fun to “sit” and be posed for a picture in that old fashioned way. Today we just snap snap snap. And if we don’t like it we snap some more.
    I have/had plenty of myself taken and deleted immediately. NOBODY but NOBODY is seeing me look like that!

      I really don’t know what the story was about the horse! (Note to self: write stuff on the backs of any photos you take. … Oh dear, I think I feel another blog coming on!)
