In January 2008, Mr. Ellis wrote: "We were just hanging out together the nite this picture was made. I think some of the gunners were out shooting skeet, and had killed some pheasant that afternoon, and a few of us had the cooks cook them that nite for us. When I took this picture from my album, and turned it over, I see I put the names on the back."
