Description
Seasickness was a problem for many soldiers on the USS Meigs. On the negative sleeve, Williams refers euphemistically to this image as "Feeding the fish." This photo is part of a series documenting Williams’ shipping out to Korea. The journey started in Pittsburg, California (Camp Stoneman), where a ferry carried troops to San Francisco for embarkation to Japan, and on to Korea. The bulk of the journey took place on the USS General M. C. Meigs Navy transport ship, which sailed from San Francisco to Yokohama, Japan between January 14th and 28th, 1952.
