|Inside WWII photo album|
Both historical and very personal at the same time, this album shows me a part of my uncle's life that he rarely discussed. As the album progresses you see the young men in the photos go from looking healthy, excited, and proud in their crisp, clean white sailor suits to appearing tense, haggard, older. And WWII, an event I only studied about in school, becomes real.

My post this coming Monday will be about something else I found in this photo album. Please visit the blog then and help me solve a WWII mystery.
