Billy was a Seabee…

…in WW2, out in Hawaii and Ruthie was his girl. He liked to sing and play guitar. He etched his name, and her name, and his general service location into the metal of his Slingerland-built May Bell acoustic. He also placed a small sticker of his military unit on the pickguard. The guitar wasn’t with him when he lost his life in action, far from home. But it’s made it to 2009, a reminder of humanity in the face of violence.
