I was looking at Norman Rockwell's wonderful illustrations for the Saturday Evening Post. The ones that focused to the fictional US soldier Willie Gillis. While I was looking I was impressed by the level of detail Rockwell had gone into to tell his story. So I wondered if there was any indication from the pictures, as to which unit the fictional Gillis was supposed to have served in, or was he just meant to represent all soldiers. So far I have deducted that he is possibly a rifleman in the infantry, who served in Africa & Europe & became a sergeant (First/Staff?). If anyone else wants to take a crack at it please do, it's quite fun. http://www.buzzfeed.com/stacylambe/the-complete-willie-gillis-series-by-normal-rockwe?s=mobile This is a post about the man Rockwell based Gillis on. http://www.saturdayeveningpost.com/2011/05/28/history/post-perspective/robert-buck-goodbye-willie-gillis.html Personally I think his illustrations are marvellous.
