Check Out My Guns: 1942

From photo caption: "It's an intricate operation - installing a 30-calibre machine gun in a Navy PBY plane, but not too tricky for Jesse Rhodes Waller, Corpus Christi, Texas. He's a Georgia man who's been in the Navy 5-1/2 years. At the Naval Air Base he sees that the flying ships are kept in tip-top shape. Waller is an aviation ordnance mate." 1942 photo taken by photographer Howard R. Hollem. Farm Security Administration - Office of War Information Collection. Vintage photograph provided by LOC.
