    Judging by the ribbon bar, along with the Navy Commendation Medal
    and American Campaign ribbon, he was in the ETO/EAME.

    Pretty broad, I know, but after graduation from the NTS,
    they would most likely have been split up. He could
    have been sent anywhere in the Atlantic or
    Mediterranean theaters.

    I see no rating or trade patches on his arm, so it's tough
    to tell anything about his duties or where he served.

    It's possible that the photo is of the sailor and his mother.

    I think the process is called 'hand tinting' which was popular at the time.

    My uncle trained at Sampson NY as well. Basic training was followed by additional training for various assignments. In my uncle's case - he went to San Diego for amphibious training. NH

    The picture that you describe with a chalky look to it is not colored photo. What you see is damage.
