Certificates for Pacific Paratrooper

1 Oct

GP Cox over at:

Pacific Paratrooper – This WordPress.com site is Pacific War era information

posted this certificate on his site recently:

Smitty ~ Letter V

I thought I would attempt to restore them somewhat.
I don’t have the skills, training, or programs to do a perfect job, but still hope they may prove of some value.

It was a challenging project. I could not read all the text and was unable to duplicate the signatures.

    You did a GREAT job, and I do not know how to thank you for doing this! Frankly I’m speechless at this point. I’ve copied both, in different sizes, and printed them out. You have my endless gratitude, my friend.

      You are kind my friend. I just wanted to pay a little homage to you and all who fought for our Freedoms.

        You did just that! One day I might impose on your kindness for another photo repair, though not so tough as this. The equator document I never thought could be fixed in any way, shape or form!

        I have repaired dozens of old pics. I can probably make them better for you.
