Today, would have been my parents seventy first Wedding Anniversary. They married in Goldsboro, North Carolina, on 4 February 1943.  My father was in the Army and due to be shipped to Europe. 

He called her and told her if she wanted to get married to catch the train and and they would do it before he left.   They were together five days and would not see each other until January, 1946

I have often wondered when this picture was taken.  My mother said it was their wedding picture.

  1. What a wonderful photo of your parents. It's amazing that, after their marriage, they didn't see each other again until 1946. It must have been an extremely long and anxious seperation for both of them!
