Wordless Wednesday: Men of the Eastwind #22

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

This is the last in the series.

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. Like I think I said before, I hope someone does "stumble" on your blog. Such a good reminder too to mark pictures somehow so people know who is in them.


  2. Those Coast Guard men could have done a pin up calendar. ha!

  3. The Coast Guard men look very nice. Like your collection of old photographs.

  4. Oh wow, this is a great handsome hard working (and cool rig to drive) photo- no words necessary!

  5. Awww....last really? Kinda sad. But it's been a fun series. Keep us posted if someone should identify one of the men in these pictures!
