Dusting off the cobwebs of my blog with this pretty boy. This unnamed private was of -I believe- the 10th Infantry Regiment, per the X atop the crossed rifles. In the 50s to early 60s, the 10th was stationed at the now closed Fort Ord in California. He was lucky. Next to sunny beaches and on what is now a national park, the fort was considered the most attractive place in the country to be stationed at; every new recruit hoped to end up there.
This portrait came in a large 8″ x 11″ mat with flap and the photographer logo at the bottom.
