The Los Angeles flea market owner mentioned that it was rare to find a complete United States WWII Military Wardrobe, and in such good condition. Displayed open for viewing, I was curious about the trunk’s owner and the circumstances which ultimately led to its deposit on the cement floor of a resale store. I wondered if the family line had come to an end, or perhaps the younger generation wasn’t interested in this important piece of history. Had the trunk become too painful of a memory, a story too sad to keep telling?
I aimed my camera down toward the opening of the two worn brown boots to record the name of the man who wore them with honor. Moses Williams, we thank you for your service to our country.
