Grandpa Mert

I edited a few more of the negatives I scanned. These are 70mm negatives of my grandpa Mert, talem when he joined the Navy in 1944. He was in the Seabees and spent most of WWII stationed in the Marshall Islands (on Kwajalein Island and Ebeye Island). The first photo must have been the keeper of the bunch, because it’s the one everyone in the family has seen. The rest were outtakes that I’d never seen. They were with my great grandpa John Meineke’s negatives, so I’m assuming he was the photographer.

The last photo is flippin’ adorable.
