France – World War II – March 1, 2012

My dad died back in 1987. He never spoke much about his involvement in the war. I knew he was in the 101st Airborne and was a paratrooper. He participated in several major battles. But it wasn’t until recently we (my brothers and I) found these photos that he had saved from the war.

This is one where he apparently gave a young French boy a piece of gum. I don’t know who enjoyed the gum more – my dad or the boy! I’ve done little retouching on the photo and think the scratches and dust spots give it character.

Unfortunately the photographer is unknown. Enjoy.

  4. I don’t think I have kin in Kentucky. My dad was from SW Virginia – Danville area. In fact, the avator is my grandfather (Roland Moore) who died in ’57 in Greensboro. Email me directly (email address in comments above) and I’ll send you the scan. It isn’t much bigger, but it may help. Good luck!
