Here is my papaw and his friend Laurence or Lawrence Bowman. Not sure how to spell the mans name (First and Last) but you all get the general Idea of his name. Anyways this is a pic from when papaw was in the phillies in WWII.
Very cool and Very proud men with that look. That DFWM look. That is history and pride my Friend John
Not sure what DFWM stands for but in any case I agree they look proud the both answered the call when this nation was in war. I am very proud of my papaw and even though I never met him I can alwas ask my granny about him. He was a great man and was a proud american.
You maybe ought to see what those new machines at walgreens and walmarts can do to enhance those pictures in color and all. But don't take any chaces with ruining them. The letters meant Don't F@#K with me written all over their faces you could read afar. JC
I dont think I will risk the pictures by enhancing them. I will leave them as is. As for the DFWM thats true. From what I heard my papaw was tough. Funny story he had a sense of humor from what granny says. He was shooting a .22 and granny came outside and wanted to try it and papaw said ok sure try and hit that polk stalk down over the hill. Papaw was shooting at it for over an hour trying to hit it and well granny shot at it one time and hit it and it fell over. Papaw got mad and went back in the house and read the paper and didnt say much the rest of the day.
This was told to be by my granny. My papaw was a good man and great hero in my view.
That is what families and stories and legends are all about my friend, pass them on down the line. JC
