These beautiful folks came from afar to this mining town (Virginia City) town of Nevada to enjoy the summer parade of cowboys and tourists alike; he was a WWII pilot who flew missions over Tokyo and grieved over the devastation he helped cause but is now at peace with himself as time heals all wounds; she was a cheerful housewife who's proud to send her loved one to serve her country. Needless to say they politely agreed to an obligatory souvernir photo ;-))
