These guys look pretty serious, Bob’s got a big smile, and Willie is trying to get one started.

The 3 G.I.’s in the very back, left to right, are:

John Malcome, Willie Sherrill, and, with a big smile, is Bob Camerota.

In the next row forward, with his peeking over the one in front is Neil King, to his left is Francis DeGrado, then Hanford Twaddle, and Elmer Williams.

In the second row from the front just about to take a drag off his cigarette is Raymond Meyer, then Harley stewart, and Bill Browning.

The guy standing and leaning in from the left is “Doc” Dunn, and the two laying down in the very front are Billy Mc Lamore and Marvin Sperle.

This is a great photo of Jim Fitzpatrick.

By the looks of the building out the window, it appears that they are at Gerszewski Barracks.

And if you look closely at the first window on the bottom row there is somebody sitting in the window with his legs dangling in the breeze.

The guy with the bottle of gin is Alpha Section crewman SP4 Gary Winslow and my old section mate from Bravo Section C-4/4 at Kingston, WA. When he arrived I went straight to Section Chief SGT Egan and told him we need this guy in Alpha Section.

How's that for service...'ey

From left to right is Mark Bates, then MP Lance Loo, and finally, SP4 Jim McPherson, an Assembly Technician trying out his new camera in the Alpha and MP Sections Squad bay on the third floor.

And what about the drapes...? We didn't have drapes...!

Was there room service then too...?

Our bay was on the Main Gate end of the barracks.
