This picture is of my father approximately 1942. He was obviously home on leave, although I can't identify the place it was taken. His name was Richard Arthur Corcoran. He served with the 82nd airborn during WWII. He was a right waist gunner on a flying fortress "The Squawking Hawk". After his 25 missions he returned to Mississippi where I was born. We returned to North Bennington after his tour of duty was over, Mom and Dad had 7 more children.
