Bill Bontemps contributed the following on these men:
"At far left is 'Jonsey.' Dont remember his first name, but he was from the
state of Washington. Down in front on right is Dean Spooner. Can tell by his mustache and
smile. Directly up from the mortar tube is Ben Rice. Remember 'Uncle Ben.' Just behind him
is 'Tennessee.'...As Forrest Gump would say, 'I never knew where he was from'. I think
just to the left of Ben is Cortland Ellis Kentucky Dennison. This photo
must have been shot before May 5, because Dennison was a KIA on that date. I think that is
me in the back on the right, no shirt, leaning on a shovel."
