GI Global Sketchbook

Cover: Outskirts of Naha – Okinawa

This drawing was made by Sgt. Jack Ruge, YANK Staff Artist, during the campaign on Okinawa. It shows amtracks of the 1st Amphibious Marines shelling Jap held Naha with 75-mm howitzers. The amtracks were also standing guard against possible Jap infiltration from the sea. Other sketches by GI artists are on pages 2 through 9.
