In World War II, 16.1 million men and women served in the U.S. Armed Forces. For every ONE who served in combat, TEN served in a support role.

The story of the vital logistics services supporting the U.S. Armed Forces operating in the Pacific is told -- proof positive that warfare is not all blazing combat.
