    Trying to figure out caption on photo

    Shandy Champlin Newbie

      This is a photo of a photo that has been misplaced. I am trying to figure out what the caption on the photo says. I have figured out the following

      "The Wise Guys of (??) Great Falls (ILL?) ? ? 1948"

       

      My Grandfather's name is Howard Hinkley, he was a recipient of a Purple Heart. Someone found his Purple Heart and is returning it to my mother but they want a photo of him and this is the only one we can lay our hands on. I attempted to clean up the photo in Photoshop, but couldn't get the text to clarify. The image in this post is unaltered as far as I am aware.
