Here via PetaPixel site, these photos are amazing and it is astounding to think of the conditions your Dad and these guys worked under. Thanks for sharing them.

Thanks so much, Michael! I was so surprised at the site being picked up by Petapixel. It was an excellent writeup. I’ve been letting the place languish and should get back to posting the rest of my dad’s collection. Hopefully soon!

Hi Debra,
Just wondering if your Dad is still alive. Such great, great photos! I volunteer for the Heartland Honor Flight in Kansas City, MO and we do biographies on each veteran that we take on our flights to DC. Often we have to research some of the things they tell us in order to get a better “picture” of what their stories are. Your Dad’s photo’s have been so helpful to me! Thank you so much or sharing them.

Hello Sandy, I don’t stop by this site as often as I should, so sorry about the delay in replying. My dad passed away in 1994. But through this site, I had another veteran contact me, Don Mittelstaedt, who took his Honor Flight at age 92. He passed away in 1993, at age 94. You can read his story on my other blog: http://www.laterbloomer.com/don-mittelstaedt/ and http://www.laterbloomer.com/don-mittelstaedt-documentary/. So glad the photo helped you. The Honor Flight is an amazing service to these veterans. Don was so excited about his.

My grandparents were in the U.S. Army medical corps in the Pacific during the war: my grandfather was a doctor, my grandmother a nurse. At some point during the war, somewhere on an island in the south Pacific, they met and fell in love. They were eventually married in Tokyo, just weeks after the war’s end: the first American’s wed in post-war Japan, according to an article from Stars and Stripes. Perhaps because of that fact, they had an “official” photographer provided by the Signal Corps. My grandfather used to say he was “MacArthur’s photographer.” Anyway, looking at your Dad’s photos, and looking in particular at the photo of your Dad, I find myself imagining it was him who photographed my grandparents’ wedding, that it was him who took that remarkable image of a hopeful young couple, standing on a balcony, looking out over the remains of Tokyo. For what it’s worth, thank you for the website, for the photographs, for the train of thought … all of which are deeply appreciated.
