Thanks.

It could be several places.

See page 181 here, which is where your picture comes from. http://www.history.army.mil/books/AMH-V2/PDF/Chapter06.pdf

All it says is "Cautiously Moving in on a Japanese Machine-Gun Position"

The guy on the right in the photo don't look to cautious to me. He looks like he's cautioulsy standing but not cautiously moving. If its a machine gun nest, I wouldn't want to be that guy. I'd rather be the guy on the left who is positioned more down on the ground. I wonder what island it was?:army:
