I didn't realize

the U.S. had a space cadet corps, guess it must have been in the early 50's.

Still There and still helping kids

Must have won the war for us

I did four years in Marine Corps during wartime and had no idea a man could be so decorated. I'm thinking if he can dodge the chaperone with the nurse he might win another medal.

Hahaha

It took me a minute to spot the chaperone. Love it.

The words stayed with Stanley for years. . .

Scram Buddy!

Two's company. Three's a crowd!

Mussolini's leftovers

Looks like the orphanage secured the lad's uniform at Fascist Surplus. He's just missing the cap tassel.

That Lad

Has been very busy.

Best boy

No, not him, but the chap(erone) on the floor holding the light aimed up the wall.
