Topic: Comic Book History
TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3545:
As stated above, this has been become an annual tradition here at Comic Book Collectors Blog... As I want to both honor the family members who served their country, as well as publicize comic books from the past that also honored American servicemen, as well as told a good story in an entertaining style.
You can read last year's blog entry, blog #3278, by clicking this link!
Here's this year's comments:
My dad had mentioned this week via phone that he had added his step-father's photo to his Veterans Wall at his home. I asked if he could send me a photo of it, which I'm using at the top right of this blog post.
My dad's dad, (Ollie Hamersky), had died in 1946, leaving his wife, (Veronia Walk Hamersky), with several children yet to raise. She re-married a few years later to one of her cousin's husband, (Frank Wilhelm). The cousin had also died, and between the two of them, (Frank & Veronica) there were several children yet to raise. They had known each other, and somehow were able to put the two families together and lived happily for several years afterward.
Anyways, I'm glad my dad added another photo to his Veterans Wall, which I'm sharing here with you today.
As for the comics... One each from each branch of the services, Navy, Army, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard, are shown above.
Being a 'Navy Brat', I elected to post the Navy comic as one of the larger pics, and since I always watch the Army - Navy Football Game each year, I also posted a larger Army comic. I am continually amazed each year of the choice of comics available for four of the five branches to post here. However, it is getting harder to find a good representation of a Coast Guard comic! There just aren't any comics titles with 'Coast Guard' on them, as a title! Just other comics with a 'Coast Guard' issue.
Enjoy! And thanks to all the Veterans who have served their country!
