97th Bomb. G Our “home”

[Black and white photo of a low, single story building with a pitched roof. There is a center door with flanking windows. The one on the left has a center vertical mullion and two lights, the one on the right has a single light. A soldier whose head is nearly touching the lintel is standing in the doorway. He is in khakis with no collar and an overseas cap. Due to the slant of the roof and his apparent height, he could probably not stand erect against the outside walls. There are trees behind the building and what appears to be a metal smokestack. To the left are several wooden beach chairs with a fabric back and seat.]
