pre-war Gramps

Donald Winston Avey on Kodachrome film. 1930s, Cincinnati, Ohio. Kodachrome was released in ’35, so must have been the latter half of the 30s. This was high school graduation, I believe. He enlisted in the U.S. Air Force shortly after and was deployed to Italy. According to his scribbles in newspaper margins, he wished he was deployed to France, where the women were reportedly more fond of American soldiers.
