The photographs were taken during World War II, mostly by Ragene Farris. They are only a few of the pictures that accompany his completed manuscript, "Rally The Pack -- One soldier's musical journey through WWII."
Most of the pictures posted here are shots of members of the 329th Medical Battalion, part of the 104th "Timberwolf" Division. In this rough form, scanned from pages with hand-written labels, they make up a "rogues' gallery" of the battalion. Click on the names to see a page with the pictures of some of those men.
