In his World War II uniform. From Betty Stewart Feibig, "My dad was a Staff Sgt. who served under Patton and was also in the famed Calvary unit - the F troop! He was in combat zones in India, Burma, Panama. He did not talk much about his experiences but he ran away from home at 16 to join the army and was mustered out after the war ended.
