Siblings seek help identifying veterans from dad’s World War II photos

What’s a face without a name?

A pair of siblings from Maine are hoping to identify a veritable treasure trove of pictures, and the faces in them, from their father’s days at a military base during World War II.

Richard Erlon Perkins, who died in 2014 at age 92, left behind a large tin with rolls of film negatives, more than 600 pictures of his time in Hawaii in the 1940s.

Perkins never had the cash to develop the shots, but after he died, son Dana Perkins painstakingly scanned in the negatives to create the images, and now he and his sister, Alice Smith, have put them online in a bid to see if anyone can tell them about the shots or the people in them.


“I have no idea how much time I’ve got into this. I’ve been working on it off and on for a few years now,” Dana Perkins told the Minot Daily News earlier this month.

They’ve put the shots online at and are hoping anyone who can help reaches out.

“During World War 2, our Dad was stationed at Fort Shafter in Hawaii shortly after the attack on Pearl Harbor. He was a radio operator in the Army to help make sure that such an attack never happened again,” they say on the website. “We are hoping that if enough people see the photos, many of them will recognize their grandfather, grandmother, father, mother, aunt, uncle, or some other relative or friend.”
