Military Monday - John Mickey (1916-1975)

Here is a photograph of my uncle, John Mickey, in his Army uniform.  I found this in my mother's photograph collection.

I never really knew my Uncle John.  He was the 6th child of George and Theresa Mickey.  According to my mother, he seldom came home to Pennsylvania after his military service, although his wife, Alice, did stay in touch with my mother.  John Mickey was born 27 April 1916 in Monessen, PA.  He married Alice Martz on 05 January 1938 in Severn, MD.  The had one child, John Elic Mickey, born 11 Jun 1943.  Uncle John died on 27 August 1975 in Maryland.
