Soldiers Boarding the Rock Island Line. SCAN0103

Off To War!

 

This photo was in some of my uncle's things. He fought in WW II, Iwo Jima and he spent time in Alaska.

My uncle shot this photo of the soldiers boarding the Rock Island and was taken around 1942. It was taken in Illinois. Maybe in the Quad Cities at the depot in Rock Island.

Steam Engine #5061.
