New Ipswich WWII Veterans

A while back  I scanned some WWII photos for the New Ipswich Historical Society which were used in a presentation at the Library called the “Greatest Generation“.

Town historian Hazel Balch Moore preserved the memory of these heroic men and women in a photo album, which she created for the New Ipswich Historical Society. In this album, 121 photographs capture their faces, forever youthful, never to be forgotten.

I’m a relative newcomer to town, I’ve only been a resident for about 40+ years but I am very familiar with WWII veterans since my dad, two uncles and one aunt served. I was named after an uncle that was killed in the Battle of Peleliu.

For me this is not a time for store sales and other nonsense. Click on photo for entire album.
