    Yes Frank, it is indeed a sad picture. Often humor was the only method one had to deflect the horrors observed during Wartime. I guess I went on a 'time machine' trip with my comment.
    As an aside it appears the KIA is still wearing his 'backpack'

    Mike I know what you mean. I didn't take any offence to your comment, the picture just gave me a "sad" feeling, seeing the KIA on the stecher and the looks on everybodies faces.....Frank
