  15. Nice job! I love the spot color in the shot at left. And the shots of your uncle remind me of ones I've seen of my grandfather et.al. from the same period. Nicely done for a Memorial Day post.

  16. Great tribute, Daryl. 1942 was a difficult year...about all I remember was my uncle was killed and gas was rationed (along with sugar and other stuff)...

    Love the photos!

  27. «Louis» again - being a WWII history buff, «Louis» particularly appreciates this post. 1942 was the year the Allies came very close to losing the war. They had setbacks in every theater. However, 1942 also marked the crest of the Axis onslaught. In the Pacific, victories at Coral Sea and Midway signaled the turn. Churchill wrote of 1942, "It was not the beginning of the end, but the end of the beginning." Many lives were yet to be lost around the world before this horrible carnage would end.
