Weekly Photo Challenge: Different POV

Dad wrote "Bath Time" Judson Haviland, Raymond Linden

Dad wrote “Bath Time” Judson Haviland, Raymond Linden

I chose this picture to show you bath time during the time Dad was overseas. If you look closely their helmet was their bath tub. Now look behind them and you can see their truck camouflaged.

  1. Wow. There’s really a joint effort going on there.

    • I think it would be hard to bathe in a helmet without help??

  2. The helmet was everything to the GIs… Some would become very attached to them as they even used them to fry eggs.

    The camouflage netting… A number of them were made in the Japanese-American internment camps – with pay, of course. Manzanar was one such camp.

    • Yes I saw that when we were in Manzanar this last weekend. It was quite an operation there it seems. As I have said previously we have been going there for many years and back in the old days I did not know what the slabs were for. Now I know!

  3. It’s no wonder these men made life long friendships. Awesome camaraderie, I’m sure it took an effort to stay feeling somewhat human.

    • I think you are right! My dad went to the reunions for the 35th QM until he could no longer travel. Now it is time for me to keep their memories alive.
