Tell the family lawyer



For Veterans Day. Both photos are from my family's archives. I could be wrong, but the more I think about it, the more I think the second photo was part of some sort of Navy recruiting scheme. Join the Navy, play cards. Hey, it's just a theory. Also, I'm pretty sure that is Kirk Douglas in back.

* Bill Ingram’s many hardships:

After each question Ingram truthfully answered, “I don’t know.”
“Every time that he asked me a question, there was a sailor standing behind me. He had his fist rolled up and he’d hit me with the inside of his fist right on the ear,” Ingram said. “I couldn’t hardly hear what was going on after about five minutes.”
When they finally decided that Ingram indeed did not know anything, they tossed a life ring into the water, then threw Ingram in after it. He swam away from the screws, then realized they were using him for target practice. Again, he swam for his life.

* Try to get a deferment for my younger brother.........
