From time to time we feature a reoccurring theme on our old friend, 90th Infantry Division soldier and BOOTPRINTS author, Hobert Winebrenner, dubbed “Uncommonly Hobert.” I just came across this unique photograph of Winebrenner boarding a train in Albion, departing for the Army.

BOOTPRINTS author, Hobert Winebrenner, had an incredible sense of humor. I recently came across another World War II comic that HW passed along to me years ago. Cause for another edition of Uncommonly Hobert.

This past weekend, I came across a scrap of paper, stuffed in an old book.  Immediately, I knew the source.  It was obviously an interesting tidbit given to me years ago by my pal and BOOTPRINTS author, Hobert Winebrenner, and cause for another installment of the post thread, Uncommonly Hobert. In true HW fashion, the [...]

It’s April, and tax time for procrastinators everywhere in the States, including the History Junkie.  This past weekend, I was shuffling through stacks of papers, looking for that golden receipt that might save HJ some cash when I came across another random note from my old pal, Hobert.  It was a October 1944 newspaper article [...]
