Surplus trucks and jeeps on the beach at Adak Island, Shemya Islands, Aleutian Islands.  Many of the vehicles appear to be GMC CCKW 2 1/2-ton 6x6 cargo trucks.
Photo from the report of the Office of the Surgeon, 101st Airborne Division, 31 January 1945:  Litter Racks for Modification of Truck 1/4 ton, 4x4 devised by Louis Schadegg, 1st Lieutenant, MAC, killed during the Operation "Market", have been installed on all medical jeeps of the division. This is the most practical litter rack for Truck 1/4 ton, 4x4 seen in this Theater. It has been adopted by the 82nd Airborne Division. This rack is particularly adapted to use by airborne troops since it can be left mounted on the vehicle and the vehicle still loaded into either the C-47 aircraft or the CG-4A glider.
