It’s Hallowe’en today and at least here in the United States everyone is celebrating – at least as much as they can while under the threat of COVID.

However, to me October 31 will always be my father’s birthday. Had he lived he would have been 101 today. Here he is in his WWII army uniform. The rear of the photo has an inscription in his handwriting, which says: “To mother From Tom”. I found this interesting because my grandmother never called him Tom, always Thomas.

Scanned old photograph.
