Something about the photo at the top of the page didn't look right for anybody that actually served in the 31st Infantry in the last 100 years. I did a little Google search. It's a Marine.

On Okinawa, just 350 miles from Japan, a Marine dashes through Japanese machine gun fire while crossing a draw, called 'Death Valley' by the men fighting there. Marines sustained more than 125 casualties in eight hours crossing this valley. May 1945.

Somehow this doesn't surprise me.
