The Smiling Army Cook Faces & Places of Yesterday, Featured Wed Nov 7th, 2012 1 Comment Great photo. You can’t help but smile back when you look at it. The guy in the photo is an army cook at Ft. Myer in 1917. 1917. Arlington, Virginia. “Fort Myer officer training camp mess.” Harris & Ewing Collection glass negative. I only wish I had a name and story for this man. This guy’s smile deserves to be shared with your friends on Facebook. Like Ghosts of DC on Facebook Get more GoDC posts by emailSign up to receive our great posts right in your inbox!
