I was scroungin around at mom`s house today and hit the jackpot! I got this picture of Dad in Italy 1944, but unknown location. he was with 706MPEG at this time. I also found some pictures of his 2 brothers who also served in the MTO/ETO, and a lot of pictures of other soldiers/sailors from the Danbury, CT. area during WWII most identified some not. :clappin:

This is dad`s brother, Frank Duzal, who served in North Africa & Italy from 23, May 1943 till 5, Nov 1945. I dont know what unit he was with. His separation paper just lists Duty NCO 566, (Cpl) Naples Foggia, Rome Arno, Northern Appenines.

I think the photo was taken was taken at Camp Devens, Mass. Frank is on the right standing sideways.

It's fun to see the OLD style WWI helmets that were still in use in training. I'm glad that they did switch over to the new style though because hell, they just look a lot cooler! I do realize the REAL reason for it; better head protection for our soldiers. :pdt20:
