I got contacted the other day by Matthew Combs, grandson of Murray Combs one of the WWII soldiers in my father’s Division.  I keep a virtual cemetery on Find a Grave of the soldiers I have been able to find. He wrote and told me about his grandfather’s collections of pictures. He has already shared about 50 pictures and I pray he will share more. I loved this picture of the group being very companionable!  Thank you so much Matthew I am blessed you are generous enough to share these with me! Please take a moment today and honor these soldiers who fought for our freedom!

  1. What a wonderful photo; thank you for sharing it.

    • Thank you for taking the time to comment. It means a lot!

  2. No problem. I think it’s wonderful to have such photos – and great that you share them. I’m slightly envious; I’m having such difficulties finding out anything about my ancestors who served in the military, so I appreciate that photos are like gold-dust we can sprinkle on memories to make them really shine.

  3. I’m there tomorrow – it’s so great to read about your father. (and what a great timing, I’m glad the 4th of july is a thursday)

  4. Think about it… Young men and boys knowing they are still alive but live in constant fear… The world’s ugliest war is raging…

    • And still they take time out to take pictures showing themselves happy! They are my hero’s!

      BTW Just sent you an email… I have questions!!! lol
