Please use the comments to help identify the soldiers in this photo!
Will Hoppe and Bob McKean are in the back on the right. The highest man on the right has his arm behind McKean’s neck, and Hoppe is to McKean’s right (our left).
And where was this taken? The print is an unused postcard on Kodak paper. I adjusted the scan a little.
To Rand Hoppe:
This was taken in Nuremberg, I would bet. My Dad had one in which he was standing where Hitler talked, but was squatting because he did not want to stand like Hitler did. That may have been a scatological comment, too.
My mother says the man standing above the others on the right is my grandfather Paul Anestos. -Evan
Tom, thanks. I was wondering where they’d be that would have architecture like that. Makes sense.
Evan, I received your mother’s comments, but didn’t approve them to be posted because she didn’t want her email address on the web.
My Dad says that Missal is to his right, and Whritenour is to Missal’s right. Also, in front of Hoppe and McKean is Jack Pirrung, who lived around the corner from my Dad in Brooklyn. He also says Roberts is in front of Whritenour.
Rand, I can send the photo of my Dad squatting at the Hitler site, if I get an email address. I do not see on the site how to attach photos to an email.
Ah, well, hmm…
You can send me an email with attachment at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll post it back here, Tom.
I can confirm thats Paul Anestos from Savannah,Ga standing on the right above everyone else.
What a great picture! My Grandpa Harold Missal is the tall one in the middle, without a tie, and with his shirt slightly unbuttoned. Thank you for this site!!!!
Man on the bottom right with hand on his knee is my Dad, Col. William A. Sinko.
I’m not sure, but the gentleman at the bottom middle maybe my dad, Dan Evers.
