I am fascinated with the Madden brothers. I heard that Albert made it back, married Helen, had children, and died years ago, but I don’t know about John and Walter. Do you have any idea how I can find out more about them?

OMG! I had never seen this patch before. I only met Duke once (Railsback nickname) but I worked with his son for more than a decade. I would have never guessed the old boy was an artist. That is awesome! It is so ugly it is cute.

That’s a photo of my dad. I don’t think I have ever seen this photo, but this was a pleasant surprise. He passed away last year at 96 years of age. We miss him terribly. I remember that patch. My nephew has a tattoo with a reproduction of the design. Thanks for the photograph.
