Wayne Brannon "official" WW2 photo, in helmet, with Trailblazer patch visible. Photo: Betsy Mills, Wayne's daughter.

5 uniformed soldiers, standing in front of a building. In another similar picture you can see a sign on the door that says "Orderly Room". Wayne Brannon is second from left, and I think the one on the far right is Bill Mueller. Others are unknown but faces are clear so someone might recognize them. Webmaster Note: Note A/882nd FA Bn emblem! Photo: Betsy Mills.

4 men in uniforms/long coats, caps; in front of building with "Drosten" on awning. They are Wayne Brannon, Stan Venckus, unknown, Bill Mueller. I don't know where this was taken (probably near either Camp Adair or Ft. Leonard Wood ?), but I also have 3 other photos (not scanned) taken in the same place which, in addition to the men in this picture, also have their wives with them. I asked my mother over the phone and she thinks she remembers that it was around the corner from the Mayfair Hotel in St. Louis, in which case it would have been when the 70th was at Ft. Leonard Wood. Photo: Betsy Mills.

On the back of this one it says "#2 American Cemetery at Bensheim." I'm pretty sure the 3 soldiers pictured are Bill Mueller, Joe Schnalzer, and Angelo "Lub" Lentine. Photo: Betsy Mills.

Soldiers in field with large gun (I don't know if they are identifiable). Todd says this was taken at Yakima during training. Photo: Betsy Mills.
