Note: the upper part of this photograph has been badly damaged, possibly by water. The Marine Corps photograph collection was subject to periodic flooding when it was located in a low-lying area behind Henderson Hall (Arlington, Virginia) during the 1960s and 1970s, resulting in loss of many historic images and damage to others.
