Then and Now; Two Marines in Okinawa - About a Half Century Apart

I was thinking about my father-in-law today. He's not doing so well. Here's a picture of him from a long time ago, back when he was in Okinawa.

My Father-in-Law, James Barber, in Okinawa in the early 1960s
And just for perspective, time-capsule purposes, here's a picture of one of my friends, Steve, from earlier this year in Okinawa, celebrating the USMC's Birthday.

Anyway, keep my father-in-law in your prayers.


  1. Thank you, Bryan.

    As usual, the Marines are the best dressed regardless the purpose of the uniform. Check out my Facebook cover photo for a WWII example. The Marine is in the middle.

    1. How am I supposed to go to your Facebook page if you're Anonymous? :)

  2. Eh, Google wanted me to sign in on my desktop and I have no idea what that pw is.
