I feel like there is a story behind this that I'm missing out on. . . .
Me too, actually. I need to hit up my dad or aunts to find out more about this.
Grandpa was inducted into the Army in January 1944 and left for basic training around February 1. I expect this photo is from that time, given the way Abish is dressed. He did come home that July for a visit before heading to CA and then on to Hawaii, but this photo doesn't look like a summertime photo. I suppose it could also be when he arrived home in November 1945. I have a neat letter from Abish to Elwood during his time in the Army. I don't think I can attach it here, so I'll email it to you.
