PFC Veeck Reports, 1943

In honor of Veterans' Day, here's a photo of our very own Private First Class Bill Veeck reporting for duty.

Marine Private William L. Veeck, 29, who started out selling pop in baseball parks and now owns the profitable Milwaukee Brewers ball club, starts a new career -that of a leatherneck. Veeck is reporting to his recruit tent at San Diego, following his initial equipment issue on Dec. 24, 1943. — Marine Corps photo from Acme
