Description

From "Darkroom Soldier": "Altar Table. Hill regularly attended Protestant Sunday services at the 71st Photographic Reconnaissance Squadron chapel, a post and beam structure with thatched walls and steeple. Here, the communion table is arrayed with flowers, burning candles, chalice, and communion server, and -- in the background -- one of the pono posts holding up the structure. Hill recalled that the services were mostly patriotic 'rah rah' talk by military chaplains." ("Darkroom Soldier" caption authored by George Venn)
