Looks like a Navy recruitment poster
I guess this is my favorite photo of him. I think it was taken in the early 1950's. Frank looks content, almost happy. The US Navy was his life and family. To escape an extremely abusive home life he joined the Navy when he was about 17 years old. Frank was born in 1932 in the town of Burnsville N.C. Ironicly, one of his step-sons would join the US Air Force when he was 17 to escape an abusive home.
