This photo was posted by my cousin Christina. It's a photo of her Dad and my uncle Nels Pierson Jr. in July 1953 as he was about to join the US Marine Corps with his classmates from the Butterfield class of 1952. Nels is pictured 2nd from the left.
Christina also mentioned Stuart as being a current member of the United States Marine Corps. What a great tribute to the service our family has provided.
