Charles Gore in his jeep at 2Bn 276 Aid Station -- note sign in background behind steering wheel.

Another shot of Gore at his jeep.

According to Anne, her dad had a big accident while driving this jeep at Camp Tophat. He refused to tell anyone that he had injured his chest by hitting the steering wheel and got so sore he could not even walk for a few days. His buddies brought him food so he would not have to leave the tent and he rested a few days until he recovered. He was afraid that if he was injured, it would delay his departure from Belgium to come home. Webmaster note -- jeep appears to have 70th markings on bumper.

Another shot of the wrecked jeep.

Charles in center in back row. I think this was in Oregon. I do know that for a short time, my mother and her best friend moved to and lived together in an apartment near Camp Adair. Her friend’s husband was also in the army there, but not in this picture. Maybe this was in front of that place.

Charles E. Gore during basic training. Possibly Ft. Sill or Camp Adair.
