    We saw this picture for sale before this past year or so. I’m not buying the caption given. Looks more like a group of Navy CPOs piled in Jeeps heading for liberty (leave). Nothing about this looks like a group heading to address enemy tanks. Jeepwise, WW2 Jeeps were the first into Korea. These look like they were commandeered for the liberty from a motorpool where they were stripped for parts: gun rack missing, vacuum wiper lines ripped out, spare tire missing, etc.

    Barney,

    Thanks, I’ll see if I can find the other pic. I didn’t think those guys looked all that geared up for heading to the front …
