Family Photographs - Post 31: WW2 dads and sons

I'm posting old family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they won't be wordless posts like others do - I simply am incapable of having a wordless post.

Here is one of the most precious (to me) images from my Seaver family collection:

The people in this picture are (from left): Frederick W. Seaver (1911-1983), Randall J. Seaver (1943-living), Edward R. Seaver (1913-2004), and Peter R. Seaver (1942-living). The photograph was taken in early 1944 in Chula Vista (probably on Twin Oaks Avenue) near San Diego. Fred went into the US Navy in early 1944, and Ed was already in the US Navy - he visited occasionally when his ship came back to port. Obviously, Ed's wife and son came out for a family time before they both shipped out to the West Pacific.

This photograph is from the Geraldine (Seaver) Remley collection, although I think I have a copy of it in my unscanned photograph collection. It was handed down to me in 2007 after Gerry's death.
