In Response To: Re: Military Photo's for ID ()
You know I still am trying to find out when and how I could get a copy of my father in uniform, from the History Museum in my city/state. I finally remembered to call my genealogy library for guidance. We Must Remember--if someone does not donate old pictures that have been identified or not, or items, they don't end up anywhere but lost. I know my father served, because I remember seeing a picture of him leaning on a cane from a war injury. But he was not in uniform. My local history museum said they started taking individual pictures of soldiers and some were placed in their military records. Early in my research I paid for a copy of my father's record and it wasn't included. Now it can cost over $60 to get a copy of his record. I don't think I want to know too much about that time.
