WWI Doughboy Photo and Grandson Reunited: The Story of PFC Charles R. Nablo


Not every WWI photo in my collection has a name inscribed on the reverse, but this one comes with both a name and a modern day connection.  After buying the image on eBay with only minor excitement, I was pleased to find a name and address inscribed on the back giving me a glimmer of hope in identifying the soldier.  After doing a quick search on findagrave.com (a great site for cemetery information), I was able to find the name of the cemetery where Mr.Nablo is buried.  Without much hope, I submitted a grave photograph request and was astonished when, within a few days, my request was fulfilled with a snapshot of his grave marker.  I added his photo to the findagrave.com site and wiped my hands of the issue.  One week later, the grandson of Charles Nablo emailed me!  I sent him the photo in the mail, and helped reunite a lost photo to it’s rightful owner.
