[ Vincenzina Brandi, WAC ca. 1944 ]

Well, I haven't spent all my time programing and designing. I've also been reading my e-mail. :-) One of the more interesting pieces of mail I received recently was from someone who knew my great-aunt Zina in Chicago back in the 1950s. He was a college student, and she was working as a labor union maid. He's promised to write up his memories of her when he gets a chance.

In the meantime, this picture from my grandfather's collection is of Aunt Zina when she was in the WACs during World War II. I think it's a stunning picture. This picture helped us figure out that his Zina Brandi was the same as my Zina Brandi. You can also see a larger copy of the photo.
