WWII photos from Walter A "Rip" Smock's wartime photo albums.
Most of these photos were taken in the Marshall Islands in 1944, during World War II. Rip was in the Navy CASU 35 unit and served on various Aircraft Carriers and small islands in the South Pacific. His Navy buddies nicknamed him 'Smokey'.
The descriptions were taken from writing in Rip's albums or from the back of the original photos.
