These are old pictures from the F.W. Cornelius, Sr. and Edward J. Kostal families. These two gentlemen were my paternal and maternal grandfathers and I want to share these old photos with members of my family located around the country...and with my extended family in Austria and the Czech Republic.

Dad with an unknown Army buddy before shipping out. I don't know if this photo was taken in a bar or a "staged" photo for the GIs. It was probably taken in either 1944 or 1945. Dad was in the Pacific Theater and was part of the Okinawa invasion.
