The World War II Photo of the Week
for 19 June 2000
|Welcome Home, Boys
As an American troopship approaches a dock in an unidentified U. S. harbor, the troops gathered on deck are presented with a huge "Welcome Home" sign mounted atop one of the dockside buildings the sign is just visible on the building roof behind the ship's rigging in the right background of the photo (the word Welcome appears to the left of the building's smokestack; the word Home to the right). U. S. Army Signal Corps photo, from the Webmaster's collection.
