My Grandpa Bill, Another American Hero

This is one of my favorite pictures of Granpa Bill.

Grandpa Bills's parents are celebrating VJ Day.

This is my VERY FAVORITE picture of her.
Notice the hand sign, Victory!


  1. All great photos, but I especially love the last one.

  2. Thank you. That is one of my favorites too. It's because of the VJ Day hand sign. It tells a story and makes one stop and think about how people felt during WWII. Not just the boring history lessons from school. Wouldn't children enjoy history so much more if they were taught to research about their ancestors along with their history lessons.

    I collect postcards too. Several categories interest me. Real photo postcards and postcards with people in old bathing suits. And anything from Southern Illinois and Southeast Missouri. I'll post some in the future you might enjoy.

    thanks for the comment. I'm a new blogger and don't really know what I'm doing. Just posting stuff that I like.
