This picture looks exactly like my father however it is hard to tell due to the angle. My father was a Marine who fought during WW2 and was wounded in Iwo Jima. We have pictures of him during the battle, however none this close. If you have any other information on Photo identification # NH 104232, please contact me the email included.
