Heartwarming War Photos You've Probably Never Seen Before
Written by Jacob Shelton
When you think about war it’s usually not in a great context. There’s fighting, shooting, and all manner of horrific existential crises that occur, but for the men and women who are in the military not every day is a dour trip in heavy equipment and we’ve got the visual proof. Soldiers during war time love to cut loose so they can cut the tension of their day to day lives.
Whether they’re hanging out with the locals or getting in some quality alone time, these photos of service men and women during World Wars I, II, and Vietnam will show you another side of the conflicts. If you want to see soldiers hanging out with baby kangaroos, or what it was like to drink in a English nom shelter then boy do we have the photos for you! Get out your rations and check out these lovable pics. Enjoy!
Edith Steiner, a Jewish woman who survived the Holocaust, and John Mackay, the Scottish Soldier that saved her. They were married July 17th, 1946, and will be celebrating their 73rd wedding anniversary this year!
A romance story for the ages if ever there were one. After rescuing a group of Jewish survivors from Auschwitz the Allied troops put together a dance in a local hall that was attended by both soldiers and survivors. Among the attendees were Edith, then known as Eci, and John Mackay. While the two never met while he was helping her out of the camp, they did spend the evening dancing.
While Edith grew up in Hungary, she and John continued seeing each other before marrying and building a life for themselves in Dundee, Scotland. In 2017 they celebrated 71 years together.
