This is a WW2 era snapshot of what I believe is an Army Sergeant in some sort of landing craft.

Based on the land in the background, I believe that this is Pacific theater.

The SGT has struck a tough guy pose with a pipe in his mouth and his Thompson at the ready!

The back of the image has a period ink notation of "this is me".

    Makes me want to yell "Hey! Get that finger off the trigger!"

    Muzzle and trigger finger awareness doesn't seem to have been a concern during earlier wars.

    I saw some pretty tragic accidents in the course of my career, so I was always correcting soldiers when they were lax.
