The Jeep In The Pacific With LIFE’s George Lacks And Carl Mydans
Just as there was much work to be done in Europe after the war to rebuild, there was a similar amount on the other side of the world. The jeep, once a part of the war machine, now served as a trusty companion for the forces who worked to wrap up the war and build a peace time world. From George Lacks’ photo of a jeep disembarking a cargo plane in China to Carl Mydan’s shots in the Philippines and the scrapped excess war materiel stored on Okinawa and a short time later the re-emergence of war in Korea, the jeep played a prominent role in the activities in this key part of the world. Enjoy the photos today and come back tomorrow for more!
