This is a military picture of my Daddy, William H. Harmon. It hung in our living room(s) as long as I can remember.
After the death of my father, my brother made a copy of the original for me...I then made copies for my other siblings, my children & grandchildren, and my family album.
An 8 x 10 of this photo now hangs in my own living room.
In 1968, when his hometown (Parkersburg, WV)paper did an article on his service, they used this photo.
My daddy was my hero. He served in both the Air Force and the Army.
He served two tours in the Korean Conflict and two tours in the Viet Nam War.
He was shot in the back of the head during his 2nd tour in Viet Nam & rec.'d the Purple Heart.He was very proud of his service and so am I.
This photo belonged to my Uncle's wife, Marjorie Marie Nutter-Harmon. When she died, my dad saved the photo. When he died, I found it in his belongings. I have since returned the original to a sister of hers, whom I discovered still living, in Arizona. The writting on the border says [John Nutter, holding baby Marjorie], and [Woman in white dresss is Aggie Lynch Nutter]. I kept a copy to put in my family album since Marjorie married my Uncle Ray & raised my father from the time he was 5 years old...she was like a grandmother to me. I am electing to submit it here not only to share with others, but to be sure of its safety...I've lost too many pictures or they have been damaged by others.
