Biography coming soon.

Machine gunner Tom Hurley was a married man. His wife, Anne, followed the company as they traveled across the country, and set up a home in a rental house in Oceanside, California. JJ Franey and George Smith pose with Mrs. Hurley.
Always the gracious hostess, Anne Hurley cooked many a weekend meal for her husband’s buddies as they returned from liberty. Picture of “JJ” Franey, Anne, and “Gunga” Smith outside the Hurley’s house in Oceanside, 1943.
