After further review, I was able to dig up a copy of the letter my grandmother wrote seeking information about Babe's service record.
She wrote to get details about Babe's service in the army.
Another pair of photos discovered among my father's boxes might be additional pictures of my Uncle Babe. What do you think? Are they pictures of him?
Perhaps the most rewarding part of this project has been hearing from people who have stumbled across my blog and shared a story. This is one of those examples.
Today marks the 70th anniversary of V-E Day, the day my Uncle Babe missed by four days. He died on May 4, 1945, by drowning.
