Family photos

I came across a cache of family photos and newspaper and magazine clippings.  I'm busy with a bunch of other things, but I'll eventually scan these.  Here's a small sample.


A clipping from the Marine Corps CheVron newspaper.  My grandfather is in the back row, third from the right.  He was just promoted to Warrant Officer in this photo; he would retire from the Marine Corps a Chief Warrant Officer.



A clipping from the Vista Press, circa 1984.  My grandfather won $50 in their daily drawing, but he didn't win the $1790 Kaypro II.  I find it amusing that they misspelled "Kaypro" twice.



Yours truly less than a month before my first birthday.
