Capture Your 365 Day 40: Interesting Find.
Among my mom's belongings was this box of photos
and memories that my great-grandma had saved for my grandpa.
The treasures included a letter from my grandpa to his parents and sisters
from August 20, 1945 with the news that he will be
leaving Europe in a few days to come home from the war;
a family photo from July 1, 1956;
a photo with my Great-Grandma Pitts holding me,
my mom, and my grandpa from May 1970;
a high school graduation photo of my Great-Grandpa Pitts;
a newspaper clipping announcing my grandpa being made a corporal;
a photo of my great-grandpa with my great aunt and my grandpa
when they were young children;
a racy photo of my grandpa in swim trunks;
a photo of my grandpa holding an explosive device;
a photo of my grandpa pushing his sister in a stroller;
and my grandpa's old business card.
