Biography Alfred Bareis
The following was submitted by Wayne E. Kiser:
I served in WW2 with the 26th Infantry Division. Following combat and the end of the war in Europe, I was stationed in Kirchdorf, Austria for several months in temporary occupation duty. This was in the fall of 1945, prior to returning home to Maryland.
A fellow soldier and I had our portraits drawn by Mr. Bareis, with his signature and "Vienna-1945" noted. I recall that the cost was of a barter transaction, involving chocolate and cigarettes.
The picture is about 12 x 20 inches and hangs in my den. Mr granddaughters cannot believe I was that handsome.
