CO Photo Album

Page 11

I recently came across a photo album maintained by the 461st Commanding Officer, Col. Frederic E. Glantzberg.  I thought everyone would be interested in seeing what Col. G had as keepsakes from the 461st days.  I recognize some of the pictures, but some of them need a little explanation.  If you recognize a picture and can supply a caption, please let me know.  You can click on each picture to get a larger view.
