April, 1943. PFC Anthony Murawski by the Apple River at the Savanna Section Ordnance School, Savanna, Illinois.
Stanley Murawski home in Albany on furlough in May of 1943. He had a 2 1/2 day train ride from Ephrata Army Air Base in Washington State to get home. Here he meets his niece Theresa-Marie for the first time. She was born after he was called up the previous October.
An undated pre-war photo. L-R: Anthony Murawski, Edward Lubinski, Anna Lubinski (nee Murawski), unknown, Stanley Murawski. Given that this photo is undated I am not sure if Anna and Eddie are married at this time. Anna recalls in her letter “how we three used to play”.
Stanley Murawski working at his desk at Great Falls Army Air Base. In his letter he notes “I sure had a mess of papers on my desk.” Photo dated July 15, 1943
A picture of Dad with his niece Terry taken while he was home on furlough in the beginning of August 1943.
