Aleutian Landing (Beaching a Landing Boat)
After the initial landing, jeep and tank lighters gradually unload the cargo ship. Here, while men hold the boat form beaching broadside in the rough surf, a previously unloaded "cat" tractor approaches to haul supplies ashore. In the leaden January sky, an ever-present, ever-vigilant PBY patrols the gloomy region for enemy craft.
