Red, A Member of The Greatest Generation


Red, a USS LaVallette WWII sailor, January 27, 1945


“Red”, a member of the Greatest Generation, appears to be an innocent young boy in George’s gouache on paper portrait, painted while they were stationed 500 miles from China in the South Pacific. Serving on the USS LaVallette during WWII, Red was most likely a seasoned sailor so late in the conflict on January 27, 1945.
