flea market finds: usps door frame

that's my dad back in the early 1950's.  i believe it's when he had just joined the army and was getting ready to head over to korea.  i think there must be a lot of stories behind this photo.  i'm going to call my dad later today and get some of them.

the frame is a vintage u.s. postal service door that i got from the jbs flea market.  jenni did one too.  you can see hers and a cute story about it HERE.

the little tags are avery jewel tags available most everywhere in the office supply section.  i like that the pair of them remind me of dog tags.  i could have put elmo on one as that is what they called him back then or papa as that is what we all call him these days, but i chose dad because this one's for me.
