Interviewing a Group of Soldiers
Robert Doyle interviews a group of nine soldiers at an airfield. They are standing in front of an airplane (tentatively identified as a Douglas C-47 Skytrain passenger and cargo aircraft) with the side door open and the loading ramp down. From the various uniforms and hats, they may be from several branches of the service. Some of the men are shirtless. Trees are in the background. On the reverse of the print is written, "From Myron H. Davis." Davis was a photographer for Life Magazine.
