First to Deploy

ACME News photo, dated January 3, 1942

A number of U.S.Navy sailors debark in this first photo of overseas troop deployments in the Pacific — some three weeks after the attack on Pearl Harbor. Note the two curious marines looking out of the porthole near the top of the photo. The ship's name on the gangplank sign has been censored out with a white pen.
