NEW YEAR'S EVE 1942-43

"Officer's Club, Camp Blanding, Fla. 1942" (Tinsel decorations imply this was Christmas 1942. Note that at least three officers wear jump wings implying that they were part of the original 508th cadre.)
According to George Miles, the man on the far right is John Wallace, a 1st Lt. from Service Co. from Clarksville, Tenn.  The third person from the right is Lt.(?) Treppendahl, also of Service Company.

Happy New Year
(The woman on the right seems same as right most lady in Christmas picture.  Decorations here imply this was New Year's Eve, 1942.  Unfortunately, a light flash has obscured Barger's rank insignia.)

Party Tricks
Lt William Nation seems to be demonstrating some prestidigitation (sleight of hand) for the benefit of his unidentified tablemates.
