This week Sepia Saturday has challenged us to post images inspired by the photo above. I recently found photos of my uncle when he was in the Kentucky Military Academ. Here’s one I just posted yesterday.

A very nice photo of your Uncle Dale. He and the young man below him look so young in their uniforms.
ALL of them look so young – barely out of the schoolroom! War is such a tremendous waste of young promising lives!
Uniforms were special once upon a time. Thanks again for including the links on the photos. The last one of Private George Angus has more meaning to know that he was killed in action on 21 August 1916 in France at age 22. So young and so very far from home.
