Great Lakes RTC

This past Saturday, I made an impromptu trip to the Lebanon County Historical Society. I looked through the microfilms to find a photo of Gerald that was taken during his Recruit Training at the Great Lakes Recruit Training Center in Illinois. It was printed in a 1960 issue of the Lebanon Daily News. The result was a better quality, but still grainy, photo. Below, you can see a comparison of the original find, the microfilm copy and a photo of my brother Dan, taken during his time at Parris Island Recruit Depot for Marine Corps Recruit Training. See the family resemblance?


UPDATE: I’ve found the photo!

My name is Courtney. I'm a copywriter in Philadelphia. I've recently started digging into my family history and trying to find out information about my grandparents. They were killed in 1965 by a drunk driver. This blog will chronicle the search to find out who they were, what they were like and what the world is missing out on now that they're gone.
