That is a pretty ‘serious look’ on “TOMMY’s” face – guessing that their cold weather … over there … in “Korea” is colder than our cold weather here… in the “STATES’ – right??… Or Wrong?
“Thomas H. ALDRICH, himself”
First the above photo is Thomas H. Aldrich with his War Dog “Shane” – serving in Korea 1964-1965 – – Dog Platoon – – K-9 Corp – Tom always had a dog at home – before and after being in the service. His passion was having “German Shepherds” training them for his own home and for those who wanted a well trained dog – a dog that would be a family member – to protect you and guard your home. His training of a dog was superb – in that you could talk to your dog and the dog talked with you – in other words – instinctively – you each knew what and where and how to get a job done.
This next photo is of – Al E. Aldrich, brother to my husband, Lee G. Aldrich, Sr. – and uncle to my sons, Lee, Jr. and Al Aldrich. The photo must have been intended for a girl-friend – Al has a date of July 8th, 1944 – Italy and also he has written: “To My Sweetheart” — “Al” – also, there is some other writing on the back of the photo – but this photo was pasted with glue on to a black page of a photo-album – and was carefully sliced out – and some of the writing can no longer be made out – so I guess we just do not need to know what was there – I feel so “LUCKY” just to have this remembrance of my brother-in-law.
You can tell that some bending of the photo and damage was done by someone – sometime ago – no one knows what happens to all their stuff when they move or leave behind all their earthly possessions for the next generation — Al and his brother Lee, my husband have already gone on to a much better place – but they are both really missed by us who are sure to follow soon, enough?
United – we ask the Almighty Yahweh to bless all of our MEN in all the Armed Forces and we give Thanks – that the Almighty has thought to give to us the “extra special help” we need – – by providing us with some of HIS most talented “Animals” that will help our Service MEN and Women “Save LIVES!” We are Grateful and Thankful for YOUR protection to each and every serviceman and the extra special “animals” that will be a work mate that with and in the care and training of our Service Men and Women will be doing a terrific job protecting America! AMEN D.V.
