After returning to the states from the South Pacific battles in late 1944/early 1945, Dad was stationed at Parris Island where he ran the NCO Club. He was finally discharged in April 1946. This photograph was found along with some of his discharge papers. I have no clue as to who the Marines are or what is going on. My guess is that the photograph was taken in the base brig. Could also be a bunch of new recruits. The war was over and life was good, even if this was the brig. | Click image for Comments.
