This is one of our favorite WWII photos. Taken in 1945, it shows thousands of troops pulling in to NY Harbor aboard the Queen Elizabeth. If this was 2016, there would be thousands of family members there waiting, but back in 1945, train travel was expensive and arrival ships (and dates) often changed. So after they got off the boat, they'd get a train ticket then go to Western Union to send a "I'm back - see you Tuesday!" telegram.
