Wordless Wednesday: Shirley Fortenberry


Shirley Fortenberry

b 29 October 1909 MS
son of Tate Edward Fortenberry  & Lucy Viola Brown

Shirley is in uniform in this photo but I have been unable to find a military record for him as yet. I do not know when or where he died. I welcome more information about Shirley.

  1. What kind of uniform is that? At first I thought WWI until I saw his date of birth. I'm surprised there is nothing on Fold3.

  2. Wait - I see a draft registration on Fold3. Do you have that or are you looking for information on his military service?

    1. Wendy, both! I did not find that & I would like his service record. Guess I better look again.

  3. Love the old car. I bet it was his pride and joy.

    1. Melba, I agree. I'm sure he posed there to show off both his uniform & his car.

  4. When I look at this picture I think of the pride in serving one's country and in wearing the uniform. I hope Wendy's find on Fold3 leads to more info!
