The Burma Road, (photo 11), PFC John M. Halloran at Kunming, China

What a wonderful surprise I had when I found an old photo album of my father’s with some photos from during the war.  This is him in Kunming, China, where he trained the Chinese 1st Regiment on how to use American weaponry and on jungle warfare.  He wrote over the photo, and it is damaged, but because he did this I know where the photo was taken.  I felt like I won the lottery when I discovered this.  Dad brings a smile to my face when he writes, “A hard day’s work,” on the picture!  That is so like him to add quirky comments to his photographs.
