Photo was a gift to her recent boyfriend who was a Marine deploying to France in the First World War.
Photo was taken in Koblenz, Germany. It was the only time in my grandfather's life when he gained weight from all the German beer and potatoes that they were fed. He survived being wounded and gassed during the Battle of Belleau Wood in July 1918 when he was with the 76th Co. 6th Marines with the Indian Head Division.
