First Station Hospital Medical Corpsmen, Christmas Island, 1942

I thought members of this board might enjoy a picture from 1942. This shows some U.S. Medical Corpsmen of the First Station Hospital, in support of the U.S. 102nd Infantry Regiment, which I believe was sent to release Australian troops to protect Australia. Included are Newt Walker, Bill Erlanger, Joe Mandell, Hal Fishman (my father), Major Les Garrett, Milt Eisenstein, Ed Livingstone, Jim Hill, and Walt MacDougall.
