First Sgt. John Fugich, Jr. • Fort Lewis, Washington, ca. 1938-1940
John Fugich, Jr. took these photos during the late 1930s. At the end of the WWII, he held the rank of First Field Sergeant. He retired as a Chief Warrant Officer in 1956.
These photos appear to have been taken at the East Gate area on Fort Lewis in Washington. During this period the military had very limited funds and had to make do. My father was with this unit from the landing on North Africa to his time in the Bavarian Alps at the end of the war – a very special place in his heart.
