Lovely Couple

While going through some pictures the other day, I came across this photograph of a very lovely couple. I don’t know who they are (yet) but I’ll find out. My first guess is that it was taken in or around Vermont and I would think from the 1940s.

couple in uniform

The soldier’s uniform is impeccably¬†worn and he looks to be a captain in the U.S. Army (guessing by the bars).

Have a wonderful and peaceful day!
