Today's picture was submitted by Charles Leck. It is a picture of his father, taken in about 1917. He was born in the Bronx to German parents. In the picture he is in training in Texas. He was sent overseas to fight the Germans in World War I. This was somewhat awkward, as it was the homeland of his parents.
Also today we feature this picture submitted by Donald Farr. It is a picture of his father and sister. His father was stationed at the Pentagon during World War II.
