In the summer of 1943, the Wagner brothers surprised each other and their mother, Alta, when they all returned home on leave or furlough at the same time. Private First Class William “Bill” C. Wagner, Corporal Technician Robert “Bob” A. Wagner, and Chief Petty Officer Kenneth Wagner posed for this family photograph in their uniforms. According to Ken, “It’s one of the breaks that happens once in a war-time!” They would pull it off again the next summer.
