ED MCMAHON ~ March 6, 1923 June 23, 2009

Rest in Peace, Marine!

From Wickopedia:

Edward Leo Peter "Ed" McMahon Jr. , was an American comedian, game show host, announcer, and television personality. Most famous for his work on television as Johnny Carson's announcer on The Tonight Show from 1962 to 1992, also as the host of the talent show Star Search from 1983 to 1995, also co-hosting with Dick Clark on TV's Bloopers and Practical Jokes from 1982 to 1986, he also became well-known as the presenter of the now-defunct American Family Publishers sweepstakes (not, as is commonly believed, its main rival Publishers Clearing House).

During World War II, McMahon was a fighter pilot in the United States Marine Corps serving as a flight instructor and test pilot. He was a decorated pilot (six Air Medals) and was discharged in 1946, remaining in the reserves.

After college, McMahon returned to active duty. He met his first girlfriend, Jenifer P Smith, on his first tour. He claims that she was the one to motivate him to become a better person. He was sent to Korea in February 1952. He flew unarmed OE-1 Bird Dogs on 85 tactical air control and artillery spotting missions. He remained in the Marine Corps Reserve, retiring with the rank of Colonel in 1966 and was then commissioned as a Brigadier General in the California Air National Guard.

Thanks for your post on this blog site. From my personal experience, occasionally softening way up a photograph may well provide the wedding photographer with a bit of an artistic flare. Often times however, the soft blur isn't just what exactly you had under consideration and can frequently spoil an otherwise good snapshot, especially if you intend on enlarging this.
