"I Always Had Pads with Me": A G.I. Artist's Sketchpad, 1943-1944

"Every night - November 15."
This is what the hold of the ship looked like: bunks going all the way up and one ladder. Once you got down there, of course, all of you weren't going to be able to go up the ladder in an emergency. I think there were probably several companies of men down there. It was very noisy and every night was a crap shooter's paradise in the center of the floor.
