Army Buddy checks in with surprise photo

Bob Morecook sent best wishes on Veteran's Day to his old Army office mate and thoughtfully included this photograph, probably taken in 1971 by a photo specialist in an adjacent Signal Corps office with nothing better to do and some extra frames on a roll needing to be developed. (remember that?) Bob eventually got ordered to Vietnam and served as an anchor on the Armed Forces Radio and TV Network. He is credited with broadcasting the official announcement of the end of the hostilities for the U.S. Meanwhile, Sgt. Rolfsrud was safe at home.
Bob writes from Houston, Texas: Thanks SGT Stanley Rolfsrud, 13th Support Brigade Public Information NCO, Fort Hood Texas 1971 -- for your service. Best wishes
