In honor of Memorial day I want to share a little about a someone very dear to my heart. My Great-Grandfather Joe Christopher, who I am named after. He was stationed overseas in the Philippines during World War II. He passed away in April 2005. He was truly an amazing man. He is still missed everyday. Here are some photos taken from World War II:
This is a photo taken of my grandfather (middle) during World War II.
Joe pictured right.
Joe pictured right on a tanker.
Grandpa is pictured on the left. I can still remember him laughing at this picture. Apparently the statues were nude....it's hard to picture your grandparent being young and goofing around.
And finally one of my favorite photos. Grandpa having some downtime reading Life magazine.
