105-mm gun and crew on Attu

Photograph of a 105-mm artillery piece and a crew serving it. Verso reads: "This 105-mm gun and its crew poured more than 2000 rounds of shells into Jap [ Japanese ] positions in the course of four days battling at Attu. Jap [ Japanese ] positions blasted were in the Massacre-Chichagof Pass. With the Aleutian base again in American hands, Japs [ Japanese ] stationed on Kiska are becoming the center of attraction for our bombers in the cold country."  Archives, University of Alaska Fairbanks.
