80-G-239318: Battle of Guam – July 21-August 10, 1944. Private First Class Attilio Lattanz, who landed on Guam with the U.S. Marines on D-Day, has his first hot chow, several days later, as he scrapes chocolate from a ration bar into his mess cup, which he places on a small fire. It wasn’t eight course dinner, but it was better than cold rations, released August 5, 1944. U.S. Navy photograph, now in the collections of the National Archives. (2017/03/07).
