The World War II Photo of the Week
for 20 September 1999
|Hey Debarkees! Remember this Scene?
A GI bound for the European Theatre (probably not ... this is a staged photo) stands at the gangway of a troopship at Hampton Roads, Virginia. Lines of men would stand at signs like this all over the embarkation area loaded down with equipment, waiting for their name to be called. Then, there was that walk up the gangway and that trip across the North Atlantic. Remember, boys? Photo taken by
U.S. Army Signal Corps at Hampton Roads Port of Embarkation, 1945.
