My Buddy: WWII Soldiers & Sailors at Their Most Unguarded


By Editors

An enticing look at vintage privates.

There was a certain amount of what they call grab-ass in the service, which is what you see in these pictures. 
“Playing grab-ass,” but only when you’re not in combat. You know, it's just like a bunch of kids together. These guys were all young in the Marine Corps, 18, 19, 20, and they might play grab-ass when they're swimming in the ocean or swimming in a river. And someone could possibly take a picture.
