Vol. 2 No. 4 ……. Cover: At Ease – The well worn, expressive GI shoes were painted by Sgt. George E. Porter, Jr.. who is with the 5th Photographic Technical Squadron in New Guinea. Sgt. Porter spent six pre-induction years in New York City doing commercial art work with one of the larger advertising agencies. In addition to this, his paintings in the field of fine arts have been exhibited in the 57th Street Galleries in New York, and in Florida. The sergeant didn’t say whether his own (or somebody else’s) brogans served as the models for this painting. ……. The Japs Counterattack Near Tadji ……. Articles Inside:
