Wedding portrait, 21 Oct 1944.  Kay Johnson is the flower girl. The man in the Coast Guard Uniform is Robert Krueger. On the far left is pharmacist George Cormack, Lloyd’s life-long friend. Next to him is Natalie Naftel, who went to nursing school with Norma and was her maid of honor. Next to Bobby is Elaine Poor, another friend of Norma’s.  This is the “Seated” version of the portrait.  There is also a “standing” version which I posted previously along with my Grandfather’s version of that day’s events.

About cthomas1967

Seeking to bring my ancestors out of the shadows of history and into the light. I have always been interested in history, and at a few different times I tried to do a family tree, but wasn't able to do it with the technology that was available then. On a business trip I visited the World War I Museum in Kansas City, MO and it was a very impressive establishment. While I was there I remember thinking, "Didn't my great-grandfather father fight in World War I? And wasn't his brother killed alongside him in some famous battle? I wonder if I can find out where he died." That's what started it all. View all posts by cthomas1967
