And this was the best shot they took.

Back of the card:

Hi Grandma

I bet things are a lot quiter on the block since I left. Huh? I really miss home. Things are that's bad here though. In 2 weeks I'll be done & in 3 months I'll probably be able ot come home for about 2 - 3 weeks

We got our pictures taken yesterday in our uniforms so I'll have Mom frop some off to you. Take care and say hi to the famly. Love Tony.

That was sent in 1987. Googling Grandma's name reveals she's still around in 2015 - and living at the same place.

The author of the card is another matter.
