      • How fascinating to have been in Paris when you were, not all in a good way, but overall! I’ve always been interested in WWI and WWII, so I really enjoy seeing your photos.

      • Thanks again Janet. I was there 10 years after the was ended, and life was almost back to normal. It was peacetime, but we still had a draft, and I was assigned to the band. My first artistic interest was to become a photographer, and so I used my service time to hone my skills and craft. For a 24 year old kid, I’m still amazed at what I did accomplish. Thanks for traveling down memory lane with me.
