My name is Bob Kennedy, I am the son of William Kennedy of Ketchikan, AK. My dad (William or Bill) served in the 10th ERBS during WWII. He died in 1995 of esophageal cancer. He left behind a hand full of B/W pictures from his time in the Army up in the Aleutians. Many of them have no names written on the backs. I'd like to share them with anyone who'd like to see them, and maybe they can identify some?!? Bob Kennedy Port Orchard, WA
Photos
1. Unknown shipmates, 10th ERBS, Aleutian Islands. [Original B&W]
Note: The original photos sent to us were fairly small in size, some out of focus or blurry. I’ve attempted to enhance and enlarge them to present a more quality image using AI photo enhancing software. Sometimes we get good results, other times not so much. If you click on the thumbnail image you will be presented with a 2x enlarged version of the original photo. If you click on the “Original B&W” link you will be presented with the original file as received. The enlarged files are subject to a bit of distortion given the original photo’s small sizes and lack of detail…it is difficult to enlarge data that is blurred, of low resolution or lacking detail to begin with and expect a perfect image as a result!
