This is a snapshot from the first antique shop in Dorset Minnesota.
I think this soldier may be home on leave. He also is most likely standing outside his parents house. I see one Blue Star in the window. He looks like he is in the Army.
The Blue Star Mothers was formed in 1942. It was a group of mothers who supported each other and their service member children. They put a small flag in the window..a blue star for each of their children serving in the armed forces. A Gold Star was displayed for a son or daughter killed during the war.
This photo was dated May 4 1944. The war would rage for another sixteen months.
Thanks for stopping by. Do come again:)
