I guess they were clowning aroud a little in this picture before they were sent off to war. My father is in the lower right in this photo. His best friend, Elicke Sicilia is two men above my dad in this picture. I have talked to Elicke on the phone and it was quite emotional, to say the least, when I told him that my dad had passed away. From the first day of basic training they had been through everything together.
