"Why he never said anything remains a mystery which he took to his grave."

Very nice job on all these photos.

Men were different then, men like my father, who stormed beaches with the Marines, as a Navy Corpsman. Never talked about it until 1970, when I came home alive from Vietnam. Only then because I was an infantryman, and wounded twice. If not for that, I may never have known about the South Pacific, other than books written on the subject.

They did their job, not for the glory, but for their country.

You have a real talent, a gift, for bringing these old photos back to life.
