I came across this photo in the archives of my grand-aunt Shirley Paulus Krueger. It seemed something of broader historical significance, so I’m posting it here. The front says “First Platoon, Co. C, Fighting First Division”. The back says: “May 5, ’44 – England. Some of the gang. To: Shirley (Paulus) from Lawrence”. I don’t know if Lawrence was a friend, or family member.

Since I’m currently looking for some platoon photos online, I thought the timing was good to put this out there. Hopefully it will be helpful to someone looking for their own relatives.
