We’re so sorry, Navy! We meant to wish you Happy 235th Birthday yesterday. Really, we did! We hope we can make it up to you with this rarely seen vintage photo from WWII.
ADM Gary Roughead, CNO delivered a special message on the US Navy’s Birthday and we wanted to share that with you, too. Here’s to another great 235 years…
It’s our weekly favorite feature here on the blog: Image of the Day! This one goes way back, we think, judging from the hairstyles and uniforms. Do you recognize this USO center or any of the good folks in the photo? As always, comments and suggestions are welcome!
Is this a St. Patrick’s Day Parade? Or maybe the 4th of July? Do you recognize any of the servicemen and women or the era of their uniforms? As always, leave a comment and let us know!
It’s a curious setting for a USO Center opening, but we can’t figure out why else there would be a ribbon and scissors in this picture! Do you recognize the time period, the people, or even the plaque on the wall in the back? Where are they?!
It’s that time of the week again: our Image of the Day is here! This center has a few interesting features outside, but we’re not sure of the exact location. If only the two guys in the image could talk! What would they say…
These three gentlemen lent a helping hand at a USO center in California. But that is all we know. Can you read the name tag belonging to the man on the right? Or how about the instructions posted behind them? Any thoughts on the year this photo was taken?
