The Chinese-American Air Wing Bombs the Japs

Cover: Nightmare ….. Floating through the ozone with the greatest of ease is Pvt. Roland “Shorty” Picard, ex-jive man from Pawtucket, R. I. now playing sax for a Special Service band somewhere in the PGC. When YANK’s capable photographer snapped this picture, “Shorty” Picard was having a nightmare. The dogface was attempting to do a very simple – but in the PGC not so simple – thing. Open a beer can. See Page 22 for more of “Shorty” and the beer situation. ( The flat top can displayed is Propeller Beer )
