Pretty sure it's a Higgins boat. If so and it's LCVP-16, then that's part of Blue Beach assault group and this would be 1944, Normandy, France.

you got the craft-higgins, and wounded taken off, which means landing and assualt successful, got to be an island, afterwards, because ship looks like a supply and hospital, but Randy would know that more than me. Not a destroyer or battleship too small, maybe Omaha afterwards,45 best guess snake, for a lanlubber. Father would know if alive, do not think Philipines. Enough from me. Randys call- John

Nothing to do with picture unless italy, But you commented on Japs stabbing live and dead men, My mom is 86 and her friend who's son was never recovered from Jap prison camp. Then a lampshade was in the news for sale made of us servicemen human skin of prisoners of war from japanese in ww2. Those people suck and always will.I worked for a while with a union painter who lived thru the Bataan death March in the Phillipines, and the japs would make the officers and he was one, lay in just ear level water all day and night, salt water, and they would piss in the water to keep it just at the right level to keep their ears infected and their noses were just above so they could breathe. they were given one oyster a day and a piece of molded bread with rats teeth marks on it. He said when some guys had enough and jumped up screaming, they would tie them to the small boat and watch the reef sharks eat them alive and bet how long they would last. He survived and had huge hearing aids in both ears and could not talk right from salt water in his voicebox, or larynx. He did say though that when McCarther came back, he had the pleasure of killing the Jap colonel who pissed in his face every morning for over a year he found out later. He had one of our highest honors ever given for bravery in this country by Esinhower, because the non-coms, reg men if an officer broke that meant twenty men were fed to the sharks and the officer. We think we have it tough once in a while ? JC

Thats a horrible treatment. Man I honestly dont know what to say on it. Thats story just scares me I just can believe that people can be so brutal.

Speaking of the Phillipines my Papaw served there in WWII but I havent a clue what part of the phillies he served in though my granny has told me before but I cant remember right off.
