(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Family Photographs: Post 78 - Sons and Proud Fathers

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

This photograph is from the albums of my Aunt Geraldine (Seaver) Remley obtained in 2007 from the family:

This photograph was taken in early 1944 at the home of Fred and Betty (Carringer) Seaver at 577 Twin Oaks Avenue in Chula Vista, California. The persons in the photograph are (from the left):

* Frederick W. Seaver (1911-1983) - my father
* Randall J. Seaver (1943-....) - moi!
* Peter R. Seaver (1942 - ....) - my first cousin, son of Edward R. Seaver
* Edward R. Seaver (1913-2004) - brother of Frederick W. Seaver

My Uncle Ed was in the San Diego area for outfitting and training on his Navy ship command (I can't recall the type of ship or the name of the ship). His wife and young son came to San Diego from Massachusetts for several months before he shipped out. My father joined the US Navy in early 1944. We have family movies (on VHS right now) showing this event also.

Don't the fathers look proud? I hope that Peter and I fulfilled their hopes and wishes for success in our lives. The future at this time was very uncertain, and nobody knew if the fathers would return from their service. Two little Seaver boy babies...
