Uncle George's photo

As luck would have it, I actually have an original copy of this photo. I scanned it and added the caption from the newspaper below. I think Dad looks quite dapper and agree this is a great photo. Thank you Uncle George for sharing.

LIEUTENANT JOHN W ROGERS a former resident of Milledgeville, Ga., currently legal officer of the 3rd Brigade at Fort Ord, Calif., was presented his sliver bars recently by 3rd Brigade Commander, Col. J.A. Cook upon being promoted to the rank of first lieutenant. The newly promoted officer is the son of Mr. and Mrs. John D. Rogers of Milledge Ave., Milledgeville, Ga.

The photo was taken around 1959


  1. Very nice Uncle George and Suzanne...nice work! It is inspiring to see Dad when he was healthy and skinny.......instead of sick and skinny. We needed that reminder of Dad during the prime of his life.

  2. This is a great picdture of Will - I had never seen it - you're right, Suzanne, he looks quite dapper!
    All of you are in our prayers.
