"Marilyn Monroe at the 45th USO Show. She is my favorite movie actress and pin-up girl.
I think she has a lot of charm and poise even if a lot of people won't admit it."

My aunt, Lee Ives, sent me a link to the Barber County Rootsweb site. Iíve been reading it all morning and find it very interesting. On the Natural Bridge page, the last group photo you have all of the names, including Kent ____. Thatís my dad, Kent Massey, the youngest son of Ray Massey, and Lee Ivesí little brother. I will try to get information from my dad about his military service and forward it on to you. Thanks for doing this. Itís wonderful. I canít wait to show it to my sisters and my parents.
