Received February 22, 2002

 

Chris Anslinger sent in this amazing collection of photos from Pvt. Don Barry -- 38 pages, nearly 150 photos, clippings, etc.!

I'll just paste them here as sent in, not exactly in chronological order. Some dates are noted on the photos, others you can figure out from the "History of Service" notes. Some photos are early (1942-1943), before the 517th, and some are with the 505th (Berlin 1945).
