Veteran's Day 2009

A Vintage family Photo of my Father at Officer's Training during WWII. Qualified candidates went through 90 days of training, and were thus called '90 Day Wonders'. Think of the movie, 'An Officer and a Gentleman'. My Father served with the Famous Buffalo Soldiers, in a then segregated U.S. Army.

I'll be posting some of my Father's old photos from training and Italy for the rest of this week........

Visit Trojan's Corner, for the origins of our Veteran's Day.

And visit Bristol Daily photo to meet an old soldier, still alive and not quite ready to fade away.........
