Cover: LST Gunners – Helping protect a convoy of LSTs in the Vitiaz Strait, Seaman B. Echols of Lexington, Ky., mans a 20-mm gun aboard one of the craft, while Fireman Jim Giffard of New York City – the guy behind the broccoli – talks on the phone with the ship’s gunnery officer. This picture was taken as the LSTs steamed toward Saidor with supplies and equipment for 32nd Division men fighting there. Many LSTs now have little Jap flags painted on their bridges to show the scores of their gunners. ……. An Oregon County Plans Post-War Jobs for GIs ……. Articles Inside:
