This photo is of my great uncle Roy Cox in his WWI uniform. I’m guessing it dates somewhere between 1917 and 1918. Though this was probably taken at a military base (perhaps Georgia?), he lived his entire life in Greenville, SC.

Vasil Levski, age 30, 1867. This Bulgarian solider was at different points in his life, an Orthodox monk, a teacher, and a member of the Bulgarian legion, a revoloutionary group whose goal was to liberate their homeland from the Ottoman empire. Six years after this picture was taken, Levski was captured and executed by Ottoman officials.
His Wiki lists his occupation simply as “Revolutionary.” Damn.

Anthony Fokker, age 22, 1912.
My favorite WWI ace “Knight of the Air” and a freaking genius besides! He was dutch, the inventor of the Eindecker monoplane, the Fokker triplane and D.VII, developed the interrupter gear (HELLO major innovation used even today), and general hottie. Obviously, he is an ideal boyfriend.

William Lapp, my great-great grandfather, probably around 1889 when he was married.
