Description

"17th Recreational Musicians in the 'The Blue Room - Dan Klepner, Trumpet - John Caccitore - Edgar Vinyard" From "Darkroom Soldier": "Blue Room. Operated throughout the Pacific Theater by the Red Cross, this type of open-air canteen for enlisted men was staffed by volunteers - usually young women - who provided drinks, snacks, and musical instruments. During off hours, soldiers could come here to relax and socialize and listen and perhaps write letters. Without women, there was no dancing. Officers, meanwhile, were building a club of their own. Photo Lab crews working swing shift heard this music through the darkroom walls. Left to right: Unidentified lead singer / trombonist
