WWII Photo of the Day

African-American Marines, on Guam in 1945, walk past the remains of a Japanese sniper. If I had to guess, I'd say the Third Marines, but I can't see the shoulder patches worth beans.
Remind me to avoid having to fight anyone in the jungle rain forest. Looks like a miserable job, to me.
They all seem to be using M1 Garands; and there is no camouflage nor any helmet covers. Many of the Marines don't have any web gear on. Perhaps they took it off to assault the sniper's position, although he looks long dead.
