This picture, find part of the crew lounging around at a beach party. 3.2%  "near beer" was said to be flavorful, and best enjoyed at ambient temperature.
Another view of the party goers. The men of the George E. Davis were polite when ashore, but also known to be cocky and swagger when they walked.
Leyte Island scenery circa late 1944.
You have been warned. If you have virgin eyes, you should avoid this postcard.  Yes, the men of the George E. Davis were men. However, it should be noted that this picture of a native girl (who now is old enough to be your great grandmother, at least) is a postcard...not a personal snapshot.
