So I wanted to jump back in with something I’ve seen around and this image fit the bill. It comes from Tarawa early in the war and shows just how far the Marines (and others) had to go before the war would end. But there is humor, too.
“Why the hell do you care? You ain’t going there.”
The image is part of a larger image set accompanying the Gilbert Island Campaign event description over at ww2db.com.
This has been another entry in the ww2db.com Featured Image partnership. The idea behind this post (and the weekly posts to come) is to highlight ww2db.com’s collection of 4000 plus photos, many culled from the National Archives, Library of Congress, the US Naval Historical Center, and other research institutions.
