Paul E. and Rena Dondi Rohrkemper. They were married on December 4, 1943 in Long Beach, CA, where both were stationed: he as an enlisted man in the Marines and she as a Navy nurse. Soon after the wedding Paul was dispatched to the war in the South Pacific and Rena, pregnant with their first child, had to resign her commission and move back in with her mother in Pittsfield, MA where a son was born. Paul didn't see his first-born till he was discharged at war's end, when his son was a year old. (Thank you to John Rohrkemper for the photo and information.)
