Yankee Doodle
This is a photo of my grandfather, Charles Lewis Day, taken during WWII. During the war he was stationed in several different locations. I believe this photo was taken around 1941 in Nome, Alaska! He is still alive and going good. He turns 90 years old this year—on the 4th of July.

Brush Busters
Here is shot of my dad. He’s 91 years old now! This is him and some guys from his platoon, the 177th Infantry, in the early 1940s, before the end of the war. They saw action in North Africa, Sicily, and Italy. He was wounded twice in combat and got out as a First Sergeant in 1945.

Here’s a photo of two Jeeps, one of which was crushed by a house during the great Yuba City, California, flood of 1955.
