This is a picture of my uncle Alvin Reese (Claude Alvin Reese) in full uniform. This picture was taken about 1941-42. He was born 10 Jul 1914 in Marshall, Texas, and in WWII was declared missing around 1 Oct 1944 near New Guinea. He was later declared dead without his body ever being found. He was my mother’s only brother and was the son of Claud Reese and Lillian Ruth Crowell. He never married. He enlisted in the U.S. Army on 11 Feb 1941 in Dallas, Texas. He spent some time at Ft. Benning, Georgia and then was shipped overseas to New Guinea.
