Marine Sharing Bananas With Goat, circa 1944


Marine First Sergeant Neil I. Shober, of Fort Wayne, Ind., shares the spoils of war-bananas-with a native goat, one of the few surivivors of the terrific naval and air bombardment in support of the Marines hitting the beach on the Jap-mandated island of Saipan.
