This is my Uncle Bob who was in the orphanage with my father.(see last Sepia Saturday)
They both turned out O.K. after their traumatic experience. My father graduated from the University of Chicago and became an engineer. My Uncle Bob also graduated from there and then joined the Air Force and became a pilot. Unfortunately while on a training mission over the ocean in Alaska his plane went down and he was never found. This was certainly another traumatic experience for my father as they were best friends as well as brothers and had been through so much together.
This is my uncle's desk in Alaska with a picture of me on it.
