TBT - 1940s Army Air Force

As I have been dabbling in the Throwback Thursdays, perhaps a blog of the FB post is now in order...

The other day, in a filing cabinet was an envelope of quite a few 8X10 pictures was found. And many pictures I do not remember - so scanning commenced.

Lower right is dad, in the USAAF (United States Army Air Forces;  the USAF was created in Sept.1947) is on the lower right, Grandma Villers (Agnes) standing behind him. As he enlisted in the USAAF in Oct 1945, I believe that this is in the Summer of 1946.

Are the three stripes for rank of Private 1st Class? I guess this to be in Steubenville, Ohio. Would love to know more!
