Wordless Wednesday: Men of the Eastwind #2

Wordless Wednesday is a daily prompt at Geneabloggers that asks family historians to create a post in which the main focus is a photograph or image.

Unknown sailor on USCGC Eastwind 1946 or 47

When my dad was stationed aboard the Coast Guard Cutter Eastwind in 1946-47, he took pictures of his shipmates during tours to Thule, Greenland but didn’t provide names.  Maybe the family of these sailors will find my blog and share their story.

  1. I just clicked over and read your accounting, Skunk is just adorable too, even with such a name! I hope somebody from the family does respond and can share more photos or stories of such a grand experience!

  2. It would be exciting to hear from the families of Daddy's shipmates! Daddy loved that time in his life.

    1. Yeah, so I wonder why he never dragged that scrapbook out and made us look at it and hear the stories.

  3. Ha! Skunk is such a cool name! I like the guy!

  4. I get so frustrated with unidentified photos and then I realize I'm just as bad as they are. I actually came across a picture of one of my daughters the other day and I'm not even sure which one it is :-(
