Sonny Defeo and Maryann Ward
Sonny (AKA Carmine or Anthony) Defeo with Maryann Ward. Maryann looks to be about 2 years old, so Sonny is about 10.
The location is Camp Drum in upstate New York where Maryann's father, Charles Ward, was stationed during summer camp with the National Guard.
Maryann remembers when she was 5 years old, Sonny and cousin Richie Calarino, who were both 13, were walking down the street when they saw her coming from the other direction.
They called out "What's cookin' good lookin'?" She put her hands on her hips and did a little shake, and replied "Soup droop".
According to Maryann, the boys found this to be hilarious and fell down from laughing so hard.
