The writing on the side of the clipping says, “Came out good, huh!”

“A UNIFORM ALWAYS DOES IT – Two visitors, Margie Sair (left) and Mary DiPrimia [Romano], both of Boston, take stroll around Camp Edwards on visitors day. The soldier is Pfc Frank Romano from Y-D Service Battalion.”

Here is a photo of Frank and Mary Romano (right) taken around 1950, when Frank was in the National Guard. The newspaper this photo was published in is unknown. Frank served as a Private First Class in the Service Battery of the 101st Field Artillery Battalion under the Yankee Division (Y-D).
