Wordless Wednesday -

Herman Rienerth
 This is my grandfather, Herman Rienerth, born 1911 in Youngstown, Ohio. I am unsure of the date or location, however, am guessing that it is sometime in the 1940s, most likely after he was discharged from World War II. This photo amuses me because of the way he's standing. He always seemed so serious when I was growing up, so this pose almost looks comical to me. It could be because he makes me think of Indiana Jones with his hat and jacket.
