About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

Dad at Work: c. 1950s

Dad at Work: c. 1950s

My Father, Major Lester R. Moffatt at work. The photo was taken sometime in the early 50s. Sometime between '52 and '54. I am not sure where APO 201 was located at the time. Possibly Germany or Japan. He passed away in 1954. I did some clean up and repair to the original photo. View full size.

1st Cavalry Division

Between 52 and 54 the 1st Cavalry Division was in Japan.

He wears a CIB (Combat Infantry Badge) so he likely has been to Korea. The 1st Cav was in Korea from 1950 to January 1952 (Wiki). (The CIB could also be from WW2.)
