Leyte Camp, Holiday Turkey 2
"Christmas turkey - Dulag 1944" From "Darkroom Soldier": "Hill photographed Army cooks carving the traditional bird on November 24 -- one day early. In a letter, he praised the meal: 'We did have turkey! Real, fresh, roasted turkey! I got about half a pound of white meat and the dressing was excellent. Creamed string beans and clingstone peaches. The best meal we've had for ages. We lacked the cranberry sauce, and we didn't have the sweet spuds until today, but it was Thanksgiving just the same. May it be the last one we'll have apart." ("Darkroom Soldier" caption authored by George Venn)
