Weekly Photo Challenge: Everyday Life #4

This picture was provided by Marvin Cain’s family.Mr. Cain was one of the soldiers who served overseas with my father in the 35th Quartermaster Division. It shows the men engaging in a game of volleyball behind a Chateau they stayed in overseas during World War II. It is great to see that the men were able to play something as simple as a volleyball game to boost their morale.

Join us tomorrow for Chapter 30 of my father’s World War II letters.



  1. It kinda, sorta looks a scene from “Top Gun”……. Take care and God Bless 🙂 Kenny T

  2. So right – nice that they were able to take a short break from the hell they were going through.

  3. Excellent post.

  4. I found the following link while researching for an upcoming post:

    It is a downloadable copy of The Quartermaster Corps: Organization, Supply and Services, Volume II, by Erna Risch and Chester L. Kieffer.

    The experiences of the Corps in WWII are documented in this volume.


    • Wow thank you so much! I can’t wait to check it out!

  5. I’d like to play volleyball at a chateau . . . with cute, young, shirtless soldiers.
