Portrait of a Tired Soldier

An army advances because the individual doughs in the line advance.  Most of them keep movig; some of them fall; others, like Pfc. Joseph F. Leradi of Philadelphia, Pa., do their job until weariness is etched in every line of their bodies.  YANK's Pfc. Pat Coffey made this photo at the 80th Division field hospital on the Third Army front.
