First pic of your Grandad is awesome! Dude looks 40 by today's standards. You can tell he is well aware his intent and the mark he's gonna' leave on this world.

I couldn't even compete.

This is my Great grandmothers, grandmother on my dad's mom's side ( there's gotta be an easier way to explain that ). Great grandma's mom passed away in childbirth and Minnie raised her ( GGma was also named Minnie ), GGma was awesome, she was born in 1897 and passed away just a week shy of her 99th birthday....we used to ask her what it was like before cars...she said "slower". IIRC, the obit is from 1914.

ban appendix. lol

Yup. Back then children looked and acted like adults. Now adults look (and act) like children.

Takin' care of business. I wish I had the fortitude.

My brief experience trying to be a cowboy almost cost me, at least my jaw, if not more, by an awnery mule deer hunting (also, trying to be cool).

Post up your cool old family pics!!!

My dads 100th jump in Germany, Korean War era. He joined the 101st back then because it paid $2.00 a week more.



His company had a dog that jumped with him, unfortunately he didn't make his 9th and last jump.

This thread is awesome.



My grandfather who passed away last year. Went into the Marines in the early 50s. Spent a lot of time in Europe after WWII. He boxed and played basketball for the Marines against which ever country they were in. He was 5'-7" and fully French. Amazing basketball player even into his 70s. He loved sports, Miller Lite, and getting into fights at the Old Time Inn

EDIT: a few more. I wish I knew more about these photos.

I am loving these pictures. Please include a story/history with each.

We NEED this in the year 2016! It reminds me of how this country was formed on the backs of our grandfathers.

We need to get back to the ideals, resolve, and looks of determination these men and women display in these photos!

Keep them coming!

By all accounts he was a great man. I really wish I'd had the opportunity to know him better.

another Pic of my great grandmother Halie Jane.



This pic and the look on her face, really speaks to the toughness of the pre WWII era.

My grandmother (left) and a couple sorority sisters with Amelia Earhart (bottom right) at Purdue University in the 1930's. Hats were the new orange back then.
