This is another photo found with my grandfather's belongings. The only thing on the photo was Jacbas and Hawk. I am assuming these two were with my grandfather in his unit 581st AAA serving in the Rhineland in 1945.
The one laying down in the middle is my grandfather, Kenneth Seibert. He served in the 581st AAA in Germany, World War II. This is a photo that was in his belongings but it did not contain a location or any names of the others in the photo. He served between Dec 1944 to Apr of 1946
