DESCRIPTION

Robert Doyle interviews Private Floyd Flayter, (shirtless) of Milwaukee, Wisconsin at a training ground somewhere in Australia. A firearm is laying on the ground under his feet. Private Flayter had this to say: "Tell the folks in Milwaukee that slamming around in the unarmed combat training course being given American forces in Australia is a bit different from working in a shoe factory." A field and trees are in the background. When the image was published in the Milwaukee Journal, the background was blacked out.
