  1. Charles Gehringer is my uncle and I have the dress cap that appears in this photograph. Can anyone help me locate this print to display with his cap.


    • David,

      I, too have been looking for a hard copy of this print. I am very happy to hear that his family still holds pieces of his uniform! If I find it, I’d be happy to let you know when I do.
