This is my father, Louis Santoro (1928-1988), about 1949, in New Kensington, PA. He sold his beloved black DeSoto when he enlisted as a reservist. He took all these pictures with his Kodak Retina 35mm, which I still have.
I know he did his basic training at Ft. Sill, OK, but I don't know where this was taken. As there are other pictures in front of this building with the same guys who showed up in later pictures, I assume these were part of the initial army experience. I wish I had the T-shirt he's wearing below.
The cool cat on the left is my father.
