Photo of the Day

This is a photo of my maternal grandmother taken outside of her parent's home in Trenton, New Jersey in the spring of 1943.  She was 27 years old.  She is wearing part of her brother's U.S. army uniform.  He would die the following year in battle during World War II.  Just over 25 years later she would lose her own son while he was fighting for the U.S. army in Vietnam.
