Wordless Wednesday: Men of the Eastwind #12

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 sailors 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. My dad had lots of picture of him and his buddies during WWII and never wrote those names on them. Now we have no idea who they are.

  2. I'm still hoping to read someone here too, and surely one day there will be that one person that says, hey, that's my father or grandfather.

  3. I love looking at some of the old pictures of different types of ships and aircraft with my dad because it jobs his memory and he then shares stories with me. I can imagine these pictures will do that for many. Another great photo Wendy.
