The picture was undoubtedly taken after 1960 when we were living in Croton, New York. My dad was active in Democratic Party politics at the time, and worked for various candidates. I have no memory of these people, but I was very young at the time, and generally not involved in my dad's political affairs. I have no idea who A.A.G. could be.

No one is identified in the picture, but my dad is on the far right. The picture was taken on the Hudson River. Note the mothballed Navy ships in the upper left corner.

These are the last of the items in my dad's scrapbook. After leaving the Navy, he went on to graduate from Marquette University, become a journalist, then work in advertising, and eventually become a video producer for the March of Dimes. He had his ups and downs, but had a superb sense of humor throughout his life. He is missed to this day.
