A Favorite From Hundreds of Vintage Family Photos
I am lucky to have hundreds of family photos, dating back to the turn of the century.
I even have some of the cameras that took the photos, including my great-grandparents’ Kodak Brownie Box camera.
Out of all of those photos, this is one of my favorites.
Here’s my grandfather, Richard Machin, who was born in 1925.
This photo of him was taken during World War II; he was stationed on a destroyer for over three years in the Pacific Theater.
He was involved in many military engagements while serving on the USS Capps.
I am very grateful that he’s still around to tell us lots of stories from his time serving our country. ~shared by @tintnainteasy
