Old Fences in Old Pictures


I found an album dated "1946-1949" from "Selfridge Air Base" in with Dad's papers.

There were so many pictures I have never seen before ... from a time Dad tried to forget ... and struggled to remember at the same time.


These were apparently taken on an "R&R" trip to Boiling Springs PA from Carlisle Barracks PA (Dad went to MP School there in 1947).

These soldiers must be ready to go swimming in the pool behind the fence ... note the rolled up towels under their arms!

It's "Friday Fences" time!

I'm sure they mean a lot to you. I love glimpsing the past.

I am supposed to be scanning all the old photos from my childhood, and there are questions I would like to ask, too...
Wouldn't your father like to talk about the fun times like horsing around at the pool?

Calling by as another participant in the Friday Fences meme, what a clever and interesting choice of post you made for the meme.

What a darling photo. Dad is so handsome, too. Ah, I do miss him this morning.
