His name is actually not "Wilkins" as previously reported.
I think he is Russell Leroy Wilkin, born March 20, 1923, son of Eugene and Erma (Smeltzen) who married Jane Miller on February 27, 1943. Age is right, location is right. Don't see anyone else in the Fort Wayne area he could also be.
Served in the Marines during World War 2, enlisting two days before getting married.
