Really powerful message by the photographer to show the American tattoo partially scorched off by the flames
Just look at what that HM (hospital corpsman…ie. Medic) is wearing on the day of the attack.
That is the modern summer DRESS uniform, and the dude is missing his neckerchief and ribbons.
I imagine he got his ass chewed real bad after this shot showed up in Time magazine. Some PACFLT CO got eaten alive by some Admiral in DC after this shit was published. If he didn’t get sent to somewhere near Japan to die at Guadalcanal, I’d be impressed.
Look at that ring. Somebody’s staking a claim.
Oof. I got second and third degree burns on my leg, and I don’t wish that pain on anyone. Hope his recovery went well.
