My Father had Cancer

My father

My emergency leave was granted by the Army after the American Red Cross contacted the Army and said my father would like to see me before he died from cancer. I was given a 30-day emergency leave to fly home and be with him in March 1955 when I took this picture. I went back overseas in April. He died in June 1955.
