This moving photo was taken on 24 June 1944, one week into the three week battle to capture the island of Saipan. The caption provided by the Marine Corps Archives reads:

Navy Chaplain O. David Herrmann, of Omaha, Neb., attached to a Marine unit on Saipan, uses a destroyed Japanese tank for an altar as he holds services for the dead.
