Wreath at the grave of a German POW at Fort Sheridan
Pictured is the wreath--note the black, gold, and red ribbons--at the grave of Corporal Egon J. Kranz. The soldier was captured in North Africa on May 2, 1943--he died on pneumonia later that year.
Here is an amazing coincidence--the German word for wreath is Kranz.
