    what an amazing photo from WW2. that's Marine combat cameraman Norman Hatch feeding a kitten he found underneath a Japanese tank on Tarawa Atoll, WWII. 3 days of one of the most bloodiest battles of the war. how in god's green earth the little guy, or gal survived is a miracle. it was common for our troops to adopt animals they found and where ever they found them
