Funny thing, these pictures are foremost in my mind now. I look through them as we are scanning and every photo strikes me in some way. As we work we often give them nicknames, "here comes Cary Grant" or "Handsome guy here".

The look on their faces can be revealing. Some smile, proud to be in uniform, others are obviously posed at home on leave, "stand in front of your father's car Jimmy." Some look very solemn, as if they know they are going to fight a war, it could be a look of grim determination. I don't know.

But I think about them. I want to know each one and I want to know who they were.
