Chernyshov Michael Fedorovich (11/22/1926 - 09/17/2017), a veteran of World War II, my grand-grandfather. In 1944, at the age of 17, he was drafted to the Eastern Front. He was a senior sergeant of the company in the infantry of the 1st Belorussian Front. He was awarded Order of the Patriotic War Second Class, medals "For the Capture of Berlin", "For Courage", "For Battle Merit", "For the Victory Over Germany in the Great Patriotic War 1941–1945".
He taught me how to draw when I was 3 years old. I learned to draw and became a self-taught artist. Thanks to this many years later I found a goal in life - I became a photographer.
This photo was taken a month before his death.
