On the roof of an abandoned factory. Some more of the inside in my journal.

Some details of an early 20th-century duplex at Fort Snelling in the Twin Cities. These were married quarters for officers and their families. This particular dwelling was last used by a certain Wilbur G. Grippen, whose fading name is still outside the door.

There was a Wilbur Grippen born in 1855 in Durand, WI, and another who graduated from HS in Durand in 1940. On a website dedicated to veterans of WW2 from that part of Wisconsin, there is a brief note that states, "TANKER FLEET: Private Alvin E. Zillmer, 506 Bellinger Street, and Corporal Richard A. Welter, 1015 North Seventh Street, both of Eau Claire; Corporal Orval E. Vanderburg, Baldwin; Corporal Merle A. May of Cornell; Warrant Officer (junior grade) Wilbur G. Grippen of Durand; and Captain H. L. Linton of Elroy are with the bulk tanker motor transport service in Europe, hauling gasoline for mechanized and aviation units through artillery fire, enemy planes and snipers." No date, but clearly post-D-Day. This last could be our man.
