Although it is neither glass nor pottery, I found the old corn planter to be the most interesting item in the photos. I suspect my father and his three brothers who also served during WW2* might have spent some time perched on such an implement, perhaps even towed behind the horse my paternal grandfather is holding in the photo below.

Grandpa Roy was a veteran of The Great War.

My late father in Germany about six weeks prior to the German surrender in WW2--he would turn twenty-years-old in less than a month.**

While Dad survived the war without physical injury, the same cannot be said of most of his photographs and souvenirs--this is one of only a couple I have that survive. His 163rd Engineer (Combat) Battalion saw significant action. They lost many vehicles to enemy shelling and Luftwaffe strafing, during which such keepsakes as the troops had stored in their duffel burned to ash.

Thank you, always, American Vets and allies through our history, but especially on Veteran's Day!

* Edit: My father was the middle of five brothers. The youngest brother was not old enough to serve in the war. **Edit: I was thinking the wrong month on date of the photo on first posting
