Almost Forgotten Abs

There I sat, all 230 lbs. of me looking at old pictures when I came across this pictue of me (in front of the door). Lo and behold --ABS! I was then 6' tall and about 135 lbs. The picture was taken right after WWII in the Philippine Islands. I remember being skinny, but I had forgotten that three years in the infantry had added a pretty good set of muscles. War is not all bad, just mostly bad.
The other thing I have forgotten is the name of the fellow with a cap. He was the jeep driver and a quiet, really nice guy!

Hello! This is a fantastic photo and I love the quick story behind it. It made me nostalgic for my grandfather who I lost last Christmas. He was a POW in Stalag 17. Would love to see more photos and hear stories behind them. Thank you for leaving me a comment on my blog. It's so great you have one. What made you get one?
