    Lieutenant Ronald Reagan World War II Photo in Patriotic Period Frame Here is a great Associated Press black and white press photo of a young Ronald Reagan in uniform as a lieutenant in the U.S. Army. In 1937, Reagan enlisted in the Army Reserve as a private but was soon promoted to second lieutenant in the Officers Reserve Corps of the Cavalry. In 1941 he was called to active duty and assigned to the First Motion Picture Unit in Culver City, California where he made over 400 training films. He was promoted to the rank of captain in July of 1943 so this photo can easily be dated. The photo is enclosed in a Victory-type easel back frame manufactured by the Decorative Arts Corporation that features the American flag in a patriotic motif. Sight size of photo is 7.25" x 9.25". An excellent early collectible related to one of our most beloved Presidents.
