‘Dad Back In The States Dec 1945’

Brothers in Arms, five members of the 82nd Airborne pose for a photographer in front of a barracks building at Jefferson Barracks, at St. Louis in December of 1945. George Spartichino stands on the back row, center with Charlie Barnhart on the back row, far right. Notice the AA arm patch on the soldier squatting at the lower right. This was the insignia of the 82nd Airborne, signifying the Division’s makeup of men from all 48 states, making it the truly All-American division.
