Earl and Don Reed

We have no letter from Willis on August 29, 1943.  Instead, we will share a picture from his youth.  This one was most likely taken in Nebraska on the family farm after Earl (his father) moved with the boys back to his native state. The move came after problems between Earl and Mildred (Willis’ mother).

Correction: This post had previously identified the boy in the picture as Willis.  It is actually his younger brother Donald.

Willis Reed’s father (Earl) and brother (Don) – Earl Reed. Circa 1929.
