My Father with His Father in "New" Milk barn

My mother told me about my father being drafted into the Army after he graduated from High School in 1951. He was given an extension to allow him to help finish building the new milk barn. This picture must have been taken before he left for his time at Fort Benning, Georgia were he was a tank mechanic. My mother hadn't met my father yet. She would meet him when he came home to visit on leave. I'm told it was a hard thing for my father to leave that new barn and the new milk system in order to serve in the Army.
