Scott, John Edgar: 1943 with his bride, Vivian
Scott, John Edgar: 1943 with his bride, Vivian
The picture of Edgar & Vivian is dated 23 April 1943, 10 days after their marriage ceremony. Since Edgar would soon to deploy for training as part of the European invasion force, they were forced to hold off on a honeymoon until October 1945 - a nearby postcard sent by Vivian towards the end of the honeymoon relays her reluctance to be returning home to Texas - and to work. Their marriage was an improbable success; they were married six days after meeting, yet, their wonderful marriage endured until Edgar's death in 1986.

Scott, John Edgar: 1945 Belgium
Edgar's 2ID unit spent October 1944 thru January 1945 in a variety of bivouac locations in Belgium. The back of this photograph indicates it was taken in January 1945; since his unit was in Verviers from late December thru late January, Verviers is probably where the photo was taken.
