Midway Day 2014

Just don't have enough time to do this justice, but here's an interesting photo of filmmaker John Ford, taken with some Marines at Midway.

Of course, Ford made the classic documentary The Battle of Midway, as well as the less well-known Torpedo Squadron 8Both are watchable here

2 It's early in the war. They are still wearing the WWI style helmet and carrying 1903 Springfields instead of M1 Garands. And two of 'em are smoking pipes. I haven't seen a guy smoke a pipe in a long time. Wonder where John Ford went to get white shoes in 1942.
