We saw this same guy washing his truck in Burma earlier in today's series.



  1. I'm always surprised to see a chubby in World War II image. I think you have previously posted images of military chubbies bigger than this guy. I always assumed they'd be forced to lose weight.

    1. I agree about the rarity of chubby guys in WWII photos, Leroy. In this case, I seem to recall that the U.S. forces involved in the Burma operations had a pretty easy-going approach to personal appearance and fitness as long as the job got done. I've even seen authenticated photos of Merrill's Marauders men with full beards and non-conforming uniforms.
