My Brother, Joe Origlio (Artist), was with the 871st Airborne Engineers as a painter, and did artwork on the side. The actress/singer Rose Marie was in correspondence with a member of the ground crew. She sent him an autographed photo that was given to my brother to paint on the plane. This is the same Rose Marie of the Dick van Dyke show from the 1960's. She was an actress/singer at the time. I also verified this with Rose Marie herself.
