Photo taken in front of my family's then-home at 2 Gedney Way in Newburgh, NY, probably on Easter Sunday in 1941, but no later than 1942. In the foreground is myself, "Bobby" Wilson, and behind me are, at the left, Bob "Bettsie" Betts, my older sister's early high school sweetheart, and to the right, Don "Bottsie" Bott. Bettsie joined the Navy the following year and never returned to Newburgh. Bottsie lived in Newburgh for the remainder of his life and died only last year. And there I am today, in Beaufort SC, still wondering how I ever ended up here.
