Great photo! We have a few photos of my grandfather after he was shipped out to the pacific theater. He had a pet monkey! It was such a revelation to see those photos of him because my impression of him was that he was a very dour serious man. He was, but it was nice to see he also had a little bit of a fun side. He had been drafted after he already had 2 children and was in his 30's! So I think mentally it was harder recovery to come back home. Both for him and his wife, who had had worked in a steel mill and gotten used to the independence.
