Anti Aircraft Group in England as they were preparing to go into Normandy, France, around May 1944. My dad, John Frank Hines (far left), was with the 601st Anti-Aircraft Artillery Battalion. The unit entered Normandy on D-Day plus 10 and ended up in Antwerp, Belgium, shooting down V-1's (buzzbombs). Dad was a PFC and earned four bronze stars. I wish I knew the other men in the picture
