NancyLee Garrett This is a wonderful photo. Herman (who my mother called "Coley" for some reason unknown to me)was one of my mother's many nephews - but was a favorite of hers. She kept a number of letters tied in ribbon that he had sent her prior to being lost in action. Herman and I are first cousins, though he was old enough to be my dad.
