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!

1940's Photo - "Gibs"

I found this photo of Dad in a tiny photo album.
It was dated "1946 to 1949, Oscoda Air Base, Michigan".
I had never seen these photos before.
